Even though the BET Awards have come and gone -- they were on June 30th --doesn't mean we can't look back at the amazing styles that we saw on the Red Carpet. If you're not familiar with the BET Awards, the awards ceremony recognizes Americans in music, movies, sports and other fields of entertainment over the past year. However, we're not going to go over who won what in this post, because we're after the hairstyles and fashion! ;) From Nicki's amazing black dress to all of the fabulous hairstyles (hello Ciara!), here are some of our favorite dresses and hairstyles from the evening.
3 Best Tresses and Dresses from the BET Awards:
What She Wore: Nicki Minaj wore a Roberto Cavalli dress and John Hardy jewels
Where: In this photo she posed in the Backstage Winner's Room at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on June 30, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Our Verdict: We love her straight tresses that have an ombre effect. It's a lot shorter than we've seen it and we think it suits her! Maybe she should wear it shorter more often?
This dress also hugs her curves just right, even though true to Nicki's style she doesn't leave much to the imagination up top. All in all this is a glam look that suits Nicki and her this-is-who-I-am-and-you-can't-change-me style! That's okay Nicki, we don't want you to change either!
What She Wore: Michael Cinco
Where: Brandy attended the 2013 BET Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on June 30, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
Our Verdict: Brandy usually looks dazzling, but on this evening in particular she looked more beautiful than ever. While most of the singers chose black, red, and gowns that left nothing to the imagination, Brandy kept it simple and classy with a lovely lace gown.
We're not sure about her shoes, but it does go against her her lacey frock, making her look edgy, considering the rest of her look is elegant and sweet. Her loose curls also suit her look and her smile shows off her confidence - which is the best look of all.
What She Wore: Saint Laurent
Where: Ciara arrived at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles on June 30, 2013.
Our Verdict: Ciara opted for a new hair look as she smiled on the red carpet showing off a two toned brown to blonde Marilyn Monroe cut and style. We loved her new hairstyle and think it suits her -- she should wear it like this more often!
What do you think of Ciara's dress? We don't know about you but if anyone can pull off a stomach baring dress, it's Ciara! With her abs and petite frame, she looks drop dead gorgeous in her barely there dress. All in all we feel that her tresses stole the lime light and that her Marilyn-esque look stole our hearts. Now all she needs is the Marilyn dress, when she's not busy showing off her abs! ;)
