Red Carpet Roundup – BET Awards 2014

The BET Awards 2014 took place on Sunday evening at the Nokia Theatre in LA.  In terms of red carpet slip ups there were no major disasters – well, I’ll let you be the judge of that…


The Good




Kerry Washington looks gorgeous in this summery Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress.  I know these celebs drop their baby weight like it’s nothing but she’s looking radiant and trim.  Don’t lose too much weight again Kerry! You’re looking hot and healthy!




Who says you can’t be covered up and sexy – well a ample amount of cleavage helps! Wiz Khalifa’s baby mama, Amber Rose, looks stunning in all white.  It appears motherhood has mellowed the model out and she’s kissed goodbye to her headline grabbing, flesh flashing outfits, and rightly so!  My fave outfit of the night by far!




Err has Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris hired a stylist?  Whilst the dress isn’t to my taste I had to put T.I’s better half in the good section this week as she gets full marks for effort.  Her makeup is natural, the jewellery is demure, her hair sleek and sophisticated and I LOVE the shoes.  More like this please Tameka!




This is another dress that I wouldn’t wear but model and on-off girlfriend of Chris Brown, Karrueche Tran looks striking in this nude outfit.  Great choice of footwear too.  Just goes to prove – it’s 100% how you wear it!!




What a blast from the past. Charli Baltimore – remember her – looking like a futuristic Barbie in Balmain.  You need presence and height to pull this look off – two things which rapper Charli has in abundance.


The Bad




Ashanti, Ashanti, Ashanti.  Why?!  I’m baffled that this outfit made some ‘Best Dressed’ lists.  Is it me or does she look like she’s heading to a club circa 2001?  Tacky and dated.  Love the shoes though!




First off there is no reason to have those shoes in your footwear collection, unless you’re an exotic dancer or a drag queen. Secondly again, this style is a dated. Either the outfit should have been just a playsuit or a dress with a full length, sheer skirt – not both.  Finally, that wig!  Clearly Ghanaian actrees Nadia Buari annoyed her hairstylist because that’s just sabotage!




The colour and the texture of this dress doesn’t work on the otherwise gorgeous Gabrielle Union.  It needs a lower neckline for one.  To add insult to injury Ms Union decided it would be a good idea to add thigh high black boots *sigh*.




Rising actress Zandaya almost gets it right but falls at the last hurdle.  I don’t understand why the baseball cap was needed – especially with that footwear. Had she worn wedge trainers , for example, she’d be on the ‘good list’ but she didn’t and poor judgement has relegated her down here…




Paris Hilton where have you been?!  The sunglasses and hoop earrings almost make this outfit comical. This it the BET Awards Paris not the Oscars.  What’s with the embellished evening dress?! If you want your music career to be a hit this time then you need to rethink your wardrobe and become a bit more trendy.
