So the BET Awards were on last night…


…you know I was out, so I didn’t get a chance to watch!
Still, I had to check out the red carpet highlights for Fashion Bomb Hits and Misses.
First the hits:

You can say many things about Cassie, but you can never say the girl is poorly dressed. She stepped out in typical fly fashion in a Pepto Bismol pink mini cocktail and peep toe stilettos. Love it!
Alicia Keys also went for pink in this perfectly fitted strapless dress…
Jordin Sparks shined in a flattering and well tailored crimson number…
And Solange Knowles looked surprisingly chic in this patterned frock…
..I see you Solange!
Another shock (sort’ve) was Miss Lil Kim…
I actually liked this deep plum halter cocktail. Given her track record, this was an unequivocal ‘hit.’ It fits, it’s flattering, the color is dope.
A snap goes to usual suspect, Rihanna…
…who looked a bit out the box yet beautiful in this floor sweeping neon gown. Initially the color hurt my eyes, but it works for her, and the makeup is simply chic.
Lastly, Gabrielle Union looked gorgeous tapping into the maxi dress trend
…wearing an all white flowing number with silver accents.
Not everyone showed and proved:
Jennifer Hudson tried, but unfortunately this was a miss for me. As a curvy girl, I know it’s hard to find the perfect bust fit, but this dress is too small:
…Fit is everything! A bit more wiggle room would’ve made all the difference!
Toccara seems to have also missed the ‘fit’ lesson…
…the top of her dress is gorgeous and sophisticated, but the bottom gets scary with pulling and pleating. Satin is a dangerous fabric: unless it fits perfectly, it can signal fashion suicide!
Keyshia Cole actually suffered from the opposite ‘fit’ effect…
…her yellow dress is eye catchingly pretty, yet the shoulder section seems to be too big on her. And isn’t she hot?
And lastly, the biggest miss had to be…
…Lil Mama. There are no words. But I think we know that Lil Mama doesn’t purport to be fashionable, just unique.
My two cents! What were your hits and misses?
