The Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards 2022 – the annual awards show celebrating African Americans in music, acting and other fields of entertainment – concluded this Sunday at the Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater. As expected, the evening was a star-studded affair with celebrities putting their best fashion foot forward.
Lizzo surely grabbed all the spotlight in an opulent, glittery navy blue feathered gown from Gucci. It was accessorised with a pair of diamond earrings and black platform heels.
In keeping with his eccentric red carpet appearances, Billy Porter turned up in a Rick Owens ensemble from the designer’s Fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection. It consisted of an oversized grey sweatshirt with dramatically lifted shoulders styled with a matching skirt with a long train. The look was teamed with matching platform boots.
Mary J Blige was a sight to behold in an all-white look at the BET Awards 2022. Her Tony Ward Couture outfit comprised a strapless one-shoulder crop top and a matching body-hugging skirt with a thigh-high slit and a train. The look was completed with a matching white neckpiece and strappy heels.
Chloe Bailey turned heads on the red carpet as she arrived wearing a statement black gown by designer Nicolas Jebran. We love the dramatic details on the neckline of the one-shoulder dress which also featured sequin embroidery.
Halle Bailey was seen wearing a rather risque all-black outfit at the gala. The two-piece set from Monot’s Pre-Fall 2022 collection consisted of a corset top with a plunging V-neckline and a matching body-hugging skirt. She accessorised the look with a dainty gold neckpiece and a stack of bracelets.
