Janelle Monae in Nicolas Jebran at the BET Awards: proud & beautiful?

2018 BET Awards

The BET Awards were held last night in LA, with Jamie Foxx acting as host. You can see the list of this year’s award winners here. The show included an impromptu performance of “This is America” from Childish Gambino/Donald Glover, plus Nicki Minaj doing her thing and plenty of awards for Black Panther. I just wanted to cover some of the red carpet photos, because there were some interesting fashion moments. Here’s Janelle Monae in a Nicolas Jebran ensemble, because the BET Awards also fall during Pride Month and Monae wanted to celebrate with a rainbow skirt. I love her and I love this ensemble – it’s costume-y, but most of what she wears looks like a costume to me, so she might as well have fun.

Blac Chyna wore a chainmail two-piece from Laurel DeWitt. I actually think she looks really good here, is that weird?

Amber Rose in Bryan Hearns. I’m always shocked when Amber wears one of her longer wigs because the longer hair really does make her look SO different. She looks pretty here, but she just doesn’t look like herself.

Tyra Banks in a Stello jumpsuit. I’m laughing at how bad this is. OMG.

Remy Ma – I actually like this polka-dotted fabric and I wish it was just done a more traditional, simple gown because it would have looked amazing. I’m not really feeling the puffy shoulder thing. The design makes it seem dated/vintage.

Jamie Foxx – who was the host – with his daughter Corinne. Corinne is flat-out gorgeous.

Garcelle Beauvais in some kind of pink thing… I know what they were trying to do and they came close to pulling it off, but no… this is not good.

    I am loving Janelle’s dress. Nix the hat.

    • Pandy says:

      I like her hat but the dress looks like a hidden toilet paper roll doll dress. Remy and Amber look the best imho.

    Corrine wins this fashion round. She is a beauty.
    Tyra needs to realize not every moment is a model moment. Did she throw out her back with that pose? Did she realize on the way over that she needed to save the outfit and thought she could bravely supermodel the fug away?
    I just know she is on IV painkillers today because her sciatic nerve hates her.

    • Cran says:

      Janelle Monae is stunnin. Her face is reminiscent of Rihanna in some pictures.

      Corrine was always cute and has grown up into a beautiful woman. I saw Jamie Foxx on (I think) Stephen Colbert recently and she joined them onstage. He is soooo very proud of his daughter. They seem to have a wonderful relationship.

    I like Remy Ma’s dress a lot, and Janelle never disappoints, sartorially or otherwise. Her performance was insane.

  5. Milla says:

    Janelle is gorgeous. The dress is hideous, but it has a message.

    • Anners says:

      Agree. I can never get over how perfect her face is; every time I see a picture I’m startled all over again. Don’t love the dress, but I appreciate the message.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Totally agree!

    Janelle is a goddess. I would have liked her dress a bit more if the bodice wasn’t forest green…and then I see the same green in Amber’s dress. An early 90s color.
    Garcelle, what is that mess?
    Chyna looks unhappy and is too short for that outfit.
    Corinne, gorgeous!

  7. Hazel says:

    She is beautiful. Always love her style and how immaculate she looks. Makeup and hair always on point.

  8. Ankhel says:

    Chyna’s boobs have eyelashes…

  9. Pineapple says:

    Janelle makes me feel like most of us humans have NO IDEA what we are doing in our closets when we dress ourselves. XO Always so, so, so interesting and perfect.

  10. Nicegirl says:

    Omg, Tyra. What gives?

    Girl, we were all rooting for you.

  11. Inas says:

    I love Jenelle face and like her dress ibut it would have looked more striking if the top was really dark black.

  12. Hildog says:

    One nice thing: Blac Chyna has really nice legs.
