Sunday night was the annual BET Awards, a night celebrating black entertainment, icons, and activism. The party was also a celebration of fashion, with stars from Beyoncé to record producers' girlfriends showing off 50 shades of slay. Here are the night's best looks, not including Justin Timberlake's white tears.
1. Yara Shahidi
The Black-ish star watched her TV parents kill it in a sequin dress that looked great from every angle.
The bright yellow is a motherf*cking ray of sunshine.
3. Tia Mowry
The star of Sister Sister makes a cool mummy.
4. Fantasia Barrino
The American Idol winner is worthy of worship.
5. Jennifer Hudson
The custom-made Prince-inspired look was the perfect complement to her musical tribute.
7. Taraji P. Henson
As Queen Bey decreed, it's all about the underwear.
8. Toni Braxton
She and her legs are in the Beyhive.
9. Naturi Naughton
The actress and singer pulls off a dress apparently designed for a sexy, flamenco-dancing witch.
That is the best jacket. The greatest jacket. The most important of all the jackets.
11. Irv Gotti and Ashley Martelle
Neither of them are that famous but Martelle's Marilyn Monroe look is worth seeing.
12. Megan Good
She looks so Good that it's boring.
360 degrees of coolness.
14. Tracee Ellis Ross
The co-hostess with the co-mostess looked striking in a gown that Indiana Jones would hate.
15. Gabrielle Union
The stunning, ageless Time Lord who is somehow 43 years old wins Best Dressed.
16. EJ Johnson
The star of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, which is apparently a show, looked glamorous with the peplum and the plunging neckline.
17. Chloe x Halle
The adorable Beyoncé protegés were pretty in pink, looking like absolute goddesses straight outta the 70s.
18. Yvette Nicole Brown
Cute, if not a little underwhelming, Brown looked wonderful and age-appropriate in an ensemble perfect for a summer barbecue.
19. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
Keeping her pledge to henceforth go makeup-free, the naturally stunning Keys looked majestic in the elevator with her hubby, Swizz Beatz.
20. Anthony Anderson and Janelle Monáe
The Black-ish star and Tightrope songstress posed cheek-to-cheek with their cheeks out, winning Best (and only?) Assless Chaps.
