Ciara in Jean Paul Gaultier at the BET Awards: stunning or poorly designed?

BET Awards 2019

The BET Awards were held last night, and as always, I’m expecting at least one “why isn’t there a WHITE entertainment awards show huh?” comment. It always happens with the BET Awards and the NAACP Image Awards – someone’s always gotta be the one to argue that there are not enough awards shows celebrating white artists. Anyway, you can see the list of this year’s BET Award winners here. I’m just going to cover some of the fashion and some of the speeches and performances in another post.

Ciara wore this Jean Paul Gaultier dress which… it looks like something she would wear, it’s on-brand for her and honestly, you would really have to try to make Ciara look bad. I dislike the dress itself while still thinking that Ciara looks great.

Yara Shahidi in Prabal Gurung. Yara is such a beautiful young woman, but I don’t get the turtleneck, the weird drape on the skirt or the fact that someone stuck a J.Crew-looking sweater on top of it??

After years of putting up with Chris Brown’s crap, Karrueche Tran is with Victor Cruz and they seem happy. I don’t mind the “oversized suit jacket” look, but I don’t get the pants here.

I truly didn’t recognize Blac Chyna, she looks like Blonde Marge Simpson.

Lil’ Kim was there and she performed with Mary J. Blige, who won the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Here’s Mary J. Blige, who also went blonde.

Lil Nas X rolled up to the BET Awards with Billy Ray Cyrus and I DO NOT HATE IT. Billy Ray collaborated on the remix of Old Town Road and it was…amazing, actually.

And finally, Rihanna turned up – she didn’t walk the carpet, but she was there to present the award to Mary J. Blige. Love the leather, honestly. Is this one of Rihanna’s own designs?

    Lil Kim. Sigh. Groundbreaking MC.

  2. Catwoman says:

    Who moved Halloween to June?

  3. lisa says:

    None of these looks are great IMO. Everyone is trying for something and failing at it.

  4. Lizzie says:

    of all the things i want to fix on Karrueche Tran’s look – it is the sleeves. Too long – otherwise I love her look. Yara Shahidi is just so. damn. cool.

    • Original Jenns says:

      Same. If Karrueche’s sleeves were just slightly long, to still go with the over sized looked, that outfit would be amazing. I love it. And CB is still obsessed with her, so I hope she is truly living her best life!

  5. Embee says:

    I love the creativity and find all these women to be spectacularly beautiful. I also really enjoy seeing beauty at more realistic body sizes. Even slim CIara has some serious muscle on her legs. It just looks so good to look at women who are, admittedly, stratospherically beautiful, but sized like more of us and not like a mannequin.

  6. TheBees says:

    Major 80’s vibes , I like all the looks in a weird way.

  7. Eliza says:

    JPG is forgiven? I thought he was cancelled years ago.

  8. LouBear says:

    OBSESSSSSED with Yara Shahidi’s look

  9. ds says:

    wow so much fug, buuuut Yara Shahidi is so pretty.

  10. Mira says:

    I never thought I’d say this but Billy Ray Cyrus looks good.

  11. olive says:

    i love the friendship between lil nas x and billy ray cyrus!

  12. otaku fairy... says:

    I like almost all of these looks, but especially Ciara’s (she’s beautiful and the dress is also lovely), MJB’s, and Rihanna’s. Deep auburn hair looks really good on her. Also, didn’t realize Karrueche had a new boyfriend. Good for her. Hopefully things work out well for her.

  13. Kitten says:

    I think Ciara is one of the most gorgeous women in the world and I think she looks amazing in that dress. Yara is stunning as well but I’m not sure I really get the dress. Then again, I’m old so..

    • Renee says:

      I agree about Ciara. She is stunning.
      Yara’s dress in this pic isn’t good but her outfit she wore to present the 1st award was awesome. It was a sort of bronze color jumpsuit. Yara always looks beautiful too.

  14. LindaS says:

    Ciara is gorgeous and that color is amazing. Dress is great except for the shoulders

  15. huckle says:

    Ciara is beautiful no matter what she wears.

  16. Wow2 says:

    Chyna looks like Dolly Parton

  17. Marjorie says:

    I agree that Ciara is one of the most beautiful women on earth, maybe ever, but that dress does her no favors. Not fug: Lil Nas X, Rhianna, and Queen Mary J. Everyone else is messed up.

  18. DesertReal says:

    My body type is similar to Ciara’s (but with more decolletage) and I always wonder how in the hell she can work everything that she does. I hate orange, but she’s still somehow pulling off that monstrosity.

    Lil’ Kim and Chyna are forever messes- and I wish Mary J. would give up the blonde. I know honey-colored locks are her signature, but I think the hair color she had in Umbrella Academy really suited her.

    I love that Billy Ray Cyrus is strutting it with Nas. Just like when Tim McGraw and Nelly did their thing- there aren’t enough country rap/hip-hop collaborations.
