Oh what a night!
The 2015 BET Awards are in full motion but we’re, well, still stuck on that red carpet. Turns out that our favorite style stars tonight all had one thing in common: Simplicity. Like Ciara, who crushed the carpet in a plunging, beaded-all-over Wes Gordon confection featuring a sexy thigh-high slit.
Gabrielle Union’s glimmering Halston Heritage gown was head turn-worthy without being over the top, which could also be said for tonight’s co-host Tracee Ellis Ross. She wowed in a form-fitting white midi (all-white was a major trend tonight, FYI—and Tracee wore it best).
Janelle Monáe, meanwhile, replicated her epic 2015 Met Gala cape moment in a dramatic black-and-purple Safiyaa London ensemble replete with floor-sweeping cape and gold collar necklace. Finally, we couldn’t take our eyes off of Laverne Cox, who stunned in a navy Dmitry Sholokhov tuxedo jumpsuit.
