Last night the BET Awards were amazing! Award shows are our favorite time to spot the latest and greatest trends for the upcoming season, and we love to see how we can recreate our favorite looks in our daily style. As the BET Awards highlight the best in music, acting, sports and entertainment and put at its center excellent African American talent, we saw many wonderful and inspiring outfits that we loved and needed to share with you. We really loved every minute of it. So, here are Faviana’s favorite looks from the night and some ideas on how you can make some of these looks work for any event!
Flowing in Tulle
Lil Mama looked gorgeous in this cream slightly sheer tulle gown. We love all the embellished details as well as the deep V-neck and classy leg slit, which reminds us to Faviana 8001 in Ivory. Gold platform heels, and the nude clutch and makeup make this look seem ethereal, and we are definitely getting Greek princess vibes. Her beautiful curly hairstyle just completes the look. Have you checked our guide for curly hair yet?
Make room for the Queen! Queen Latifah was amazing in her LBD. You can never go wrong in black, especially if you have some ruffles at the skirt and an off-the-shoulder neckline, as you can see in Faviana S 7937. Black stilettos and silver cuff bracelets and rings were the perfect accessories, but what definitely sold us was the beauty: straight hair parted to the side is the perfect compliment to this neckline, and the simple beauty look made her skin glow!
We are obsessing over florals here! Letoya Luckett looked stunning in her black gown with pink and green florals. We adore how the fabric seems to fall forever— just as Faviana 7946, which is one of our favorite Summer dresses with its beautiful V-neck style and its fresh and flirty loose and flowy skirt, perfect for the heat of the summer months.
Duckie Thot was a vision in red in this stunning tube gown. The one-shoulder ruffles and slight cut-out at the waist give this dress a flirty touch like Faviana S 8002 but we love how easy and sophisticated she makes it look with sleek straight hair and blunt bangs. Minimal silver jewelry, the perfect manicure and a nice red lipstick and delicate cat-eye complete this look.
Jada Pinkett-Smith is simply ageless. This beauty looked amazing yet again in a gold sequins dress with deep V-neck and sophisticated leg-slit, resembling Faviana 8008. In simple black stilettos that match her nails, a gold clutch, and some simple jewelry, we really love how the starlet sleeked her hair back to showcase her dress-matching gold-sequined scarf. We can’t get enough of this look!
