The 2016 BET Awards are going down! With a Prince tribute that will go down in history and all of the fabulous wardrobe changes to come from co-host Tracee Ellis Ross, it’s going to be a fantastic night!
Here are the red carpet looks in 3…2…1…
Gabrielle Union flaunted her toned gams in a one-shoulder Marc Jacobs gown with a thigh-high slit. She’s always radiant.
Janelle Monae was suited up in a striped sequin Sass & Bide pairing. Hot!
Tracee Ellis Ross smoldered in a vintage 1983 Thierry Mugler python turtleneck dress that fit her like a second skin. Adding in some Christian Louboutin heels, she was perfection personified.
2 Chainz sported a Gucci embroidered shearling coat, a polo from the iconic Italian fashion house, and a refined updo.
Our own Editor-in-Chic Claire Sulmers went for a bold and colorful mini dress with a cape by MyChael Knight. She finished the look off with some metallic open-toed Guiseppe Zanotti heels. Hot!
Meagan Good certainly made a few women green with envy in a Lorena Sarbu cutout gown with a thigh-high slit in the vibrant shade.
A $2,596 Balmain Black and White Long Sleeve Harlequin Print Mini Dress was on the agenda for Jasmine Sanders.

Tia’s husband, Cory Hardrict, was one of the night’s best dressed men in a timeless tux.
Karrueche Tran was simple and chic in a black button-front dress and gold accoutrements. She’s gorgeous!
Yara Shahidi shimmered and sparkled in a sequin Tracy Reese dress. I live for her style.
South African singer Nandi Mngoma couldn’t be missed in her very own black and white strapless COLOUR gown: a collaboration with Inga Madyibi. I cannot wait to see what she wears next, I have my eye on her!
Letoya Luckett channeled old Hollywood glamour in a red keyhole halter gown with a thigh-high slit.
Sheer side panels, cutout detailing, and a deep-v neckline accented Regina Hall’s sultry ensemble.
There was no doubt that Lisa Raye would wear white! She added some color to her signature look with a short lavender haircut.
Tasha Smith opted for a yellow printed jumpsuit for the evening.

I loved Naturi Naughton’s Nina Ricci lace LBD, but wasn’t too keen on the hair…
A printed one-shoulder dress and black cutout sculpted dress were Julissa Bermudez’s choices for the awards show. The belt was unnecessary, but the look is cute otherwise!
