Weekend Hot! or Hmm…: BET Honors Awards, The 2013 Golden Globes, Ashley Madekwe, and More!

This weekend was full of star-studded fêtes with the BET Honors and the 2013 Golden Globes. The awards shows brought a slew of glamorous gowns, all of which we’ve rifled through for your entertainment.


Let’s take a look.


No surprises here– Kerry Washington looked amazing. The Django Unchained actress stunned in a sparkling Miu Miu gown, blunt bangs, and peachy pumps.


Thandie Newton looked absolutely perfect in this Giles frock and powdery lavender ankle-strap pumps. Can you think of a time the woman doesn’t look flawless?

Eva Longoria served up ample drama, flashing some serious leg in this Emilio Pucci lace gown. Hot!

Jessica Alba glowed in a peachy Oscar de la Renta gown and side-swept mermaid hair. You gotta love it!

Who says matching your eye makeup to your ‘fit is only 7th graders? Nicole Richie took to the red carpet in a powder blue bead-embellished Naeem Khan gown, completing her look with a black  (why not ivory?) fringed clutch and subtle jewels.

Poor Halle Berry landed on everyone’s worst dressed list for this Atelier Versace Fall 2012 gown. I was too distracted by how rockin’ her body looks at 46 to really throw any type of shade.


Amy Poehler kept it sleek and chic in a custom Stella McCartney suit. *Snaps to the side* Werque!

Surprise! Jennifer Lopez rocked another uber sexy Zuhair Murad number for the occasion, leaving the world wondering if she does indeed drink the blood of virgins to look so darn good at 43.

Claire Danes had a baby four weeks ago. Claire Danes had a baby four weeks ago. Claire Danes had a baby four weeks ago! The Homeland actress was absolutley devoid of flaws in this (strategically draped!) Atelier Versace gown.  Absolute perfection!

I’m a total fan of the peplum trend, but this particular Antonio Berardi peplum dress does nothing for Rosario Dawson’s figure. The baby blue color does  look amazing on her skin, though!

Nene Leakes looked elegant and sophisticated in a classic Carolina Herrera ensemble. The v-neckline and full skirt are supremely flattering. Work it, Lenethia!

Shaun Robinson struck a pose in her Pamella Rolland dress. Not a big fan, but it works.

Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union looked like a bag of money at the BET Honors Pre-Dinner. The Think Like A Man actress opted for a strapless white dress with brocade bodice…


… then slayed the red carpet for the event in a super sexy Emilio Pucci green keyhole gown. We gotta admit, the woman is putting these young’ns to shame!

Alicia Keys was also in attendance, and slipped on this CD Greene black frock.

Chaka Khan cast a coy glance upon photographers at the BET Honors pre-dinner.

Kelly Rowland pulled out her Diana Ross tracks for the night, shutting the place down with her luscious locks and ultrasexy Emilio Pucci bodycon frock. Love it!

I’m not sure if I like the iridescent effect on Kat Graham’s dress, but to deny that makeup would be reckless. Her face is beat for Mother Mary!

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen looked adorable together at the Elysium Gala.

Ashley Madekwe was also at the Elysium Gala. The actress rocked an embellished Naeem Khan and was without a flaw. Gorgeous gal!
Who had your best looks this weekend?
