The BET Awards are set to debut this Sunday with performances by Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, T.I. and more. But let’s be real, the red carpet is the most important part of the entire award show! Acceptance speeches? Forgettable. A disastrous red carpet gown? We’ll forever remember. Before the BET Awards red carpet rolls out, check out the 15 best and worst looks from past BET Awards. Who’s getting best dressed for 2013?
BEST- Beyonce, 2009
Hands down, Beyonce was the queen of the red carpet in 2009.
WORST- Dave Navarrao, 2004
This was NOT the way to bring rock ‘n’ roll to the BET red carpet.
BEST- Chris Brown, 2008
Breezy may not be everyone’s favorite R&B crooner, but he’s arguably one of the best dressed.
WORST- Portia Coleman, 2012
Who let Portia Coleman play in Nicki Minaj’s leftover looks?
BEST- Cassie, 2009
Model/singer Cassie is notoriously known for killin’ a red carpet. Back in 2009 she stole the show in an all black cut-out look.
BEST- CIARA, 2010
Ciara took the title as best dressed in 2010 in a sleek gold embellished gown, and a hot pair of lace up boots.
BEST- EVA PIGFORD, 2005
While our fashion choices were questionable back in 2005, Eva Pigford’s summery look remains simple and chic.
WORST- Lil Mama, 2008
Unfortunately, Lil Mama’s red carpet look read Strawberry Shortcake gone wrong.
BEST- Diddy Dirty Money, 2011
A+ goes to Diddy Dirty Money’s all white everything dress code!
WORST- Rick Ross, 2012
Rick Ross’s monochrome sweatsuit look was a flop. We rather see the Boss in a clean suit and tie.
BEST- Swizz Beatz, 2012
Swizz Beatz Givenchy”Birds of Paradise” slacks, simple white top and kicks made for the perfect red carpet look.
BEST- Selita Ebanks, 2012
Selita Banks nailed it in a Falguni & Shane Peacock sheer-skirted dress.
BEST- Pharrell Williams, 2010
Count on Skateboard-P to bring his laidback fashion sense to a red carpet event and completely kill it. Nelly, take notes.
