The Best Dressed Edition: BET Awards 2012

At this year’s BET Awards the red carpet was filled with the glamour and high fashion of entertainment’s elite. Though all of the stars looked great for the awards, a few managed to stand out amongst their peers. These show stopping looks had us taking double takes on the red carpet!

Eva Marcille strutted down the red carpet wearing a white long sleeved, backless, mini dress which flaunted her perfectly bronzed figure. She accented the dress with large gold and turquoise statement earrings, paired with hot orange pumps for a nice pop of color. Her minimal makeup and platinum pixie cut complimented each other perfectly for a sexy summer look.

Elle Varner wowed on the red carpet in a gorgeous floor length paisley dress, which she paired with a turquoise clutch. She kept her look youthful with her signature curls swept up into a fun side style, and lips painted bright pink. Elle’s vibrant look definitely matched her confidence for the night!

Wendy Raquel Robinson rocked the red carpet in her neon BCBG MAXAZRIA maxi cutout dress. Paired with shimmery gold peep toe stilettos and a stunning gold Egyptian inspired snake necklace, Wendy gave her look that extra spark for the red carpet!

Selita Ebanks hit the red carpet wearing a Falguni & Shane Peacock Ready To Wear 2012 dress paired with a small silver clutch and gorgeous black Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos. Selita’s glamorous yet edgy look was completed with soft curls and a striking silver smokey eye!

Monica‘s impeccable taste and fashion forward looks never seem to disappoint. She walked the red carpet in a deep wine colored ensemble – a structured blazer, paired with sequin leggings and Cristian Louboutin spike peep toe heels! Monica kept it chic with a sleek high bun and highlighted cheekbones.

Swizz Beatz made a fashionable statement in his complete off-the-runway  look. He was wearing a Givenchy Spring 2012 crew neck sweater with shoulder zipper accents and “Birds of Paradise” trousers, which he paired with white Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. Swizz set off his clean cut look with gold accessories, a black watch and amber ombre sunglasses!

Miguel went along with the red carpet theme in his red Members Only jacket, simple tee, skinny trouser pants and silver jewelry. Miguel owns his rockabilly retro style as he sports a pair of black and white oxford pointed creeper shoes which are very trendy this season as seen on the runways of Prada, Balenciaga, and Dolce & Gabbana. Miguel’s unique hairstyles are always changing, and for this year’s awards show he finessed a 1950’s Elvis reminiscent fohawk.

A$AP Rocky, who is becoming known for not only his music, but also his style and close friendships with well known designers, such as Jeremy Scott and Alexander Wang, stepped out on the red carpet in one of  his signature all black ensembles. Wearing a 3/4 sleeve dress shirt, black denim skinnys, leather tassel loafers, gold jewelry, an Hermes belt and black snapback hat, A$AP kept true to his personal high fashion street style and cool laid back demeanor.

Hosea Chanchez looked dashing on the red carpet wearing a crisp royal blue suit over a white dress shirt. However, his outfit was taken to the next level with his leopard print pony hair dress shoes! His combination of a solid primary color with funky animal print, definitely made him one of the night’s biggest standouts on the carpet!
