Best Looks from the Red Carpet + Backstage at the 2012 BET Awards in Los Angeles

Beyonce + Nicki Minaj

Mariah + Monica + Cissy Houston + LaLa

Eva Pigford + Selita Ebanks + Toccara Jones

Lola Munroe + Angela Bassett + Kerry Washington

From what I saw, the afore-mentioned celebrities were the only ones who represented for fashion at the 2012 BET Awards, which took place in Los Angeles last evening. The men had it easy (don’t they always?) All they had to do was show up in jeans and a t-shirt or a suit. The women? Hmm! Boy, did they try to make all kinds of fashion statements in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colours and lengths all night long, with performers changing into as many as two or three outfits through the course of the night. For the most part they were okay fashion statements. Kerry Washington, who is one of my favourite fashionistas played it too safe in a beige bustier and black pencil skirt. I was pleasantly surprised by Toccara Jones who looked pretty stylish in print, Selita Ebanks knocked it out of the ballpark in a semi-see-through floor length Falguni & Shane Peacock (she’s definitely becoming a fashion favourite), Beyonce shined in a thigh-high slit sleek yellow dress paired with a statement silver belt, Kim Kardashian and Eva Pigford also impressed in sizzling white numbers. Angela Bassett kept in classy in an appropriately short lacy lbd paired with peep-toe pumps and her stylishly signature pixie haircut. I really loved Lola Munroe’s one-shouldered fitted gown by Gerardo Reyes but couldn’t understand the necklace on her head which threatened to unbalance her nearly perfect look.

Top 3 Best Dressed at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow

Top 3 Best Dressed at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards in Glasgow

Acknowledging the best in Scottish fashion, style and design for the past year, the SFAs took place this evening at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow, Scotland.

Among the elite attending Scotland’s most prestigious fashion event; Louise Linton wore one of my favourite design statements of the night, striking a pose on the red carpet in bip-cut white gown with such delicate detailing as lace appliqué, pleated double layer skirts and a thigh-high slit which she gracefully did not emphasise by sticking her leg out of it a la current trend. Also notably fashionable were Cat Cubie in a fuchsia pink peplumed short-sleeved gown and Karen Gilan who certainly looked liked a winner in a 3\4 sleeve canary yellow and black mini dress paired with black pumps as she posed with her ‘style icon’ of the year award.

Nina Dobrev

Nancy O'Dell

Giuliana Rancic

Kate Winslet

Kerry Washington

Adrianne Palicki

Lea Michele

Angela Kinsey

Kathy Griffin

Sofia Vergara

Connie Britton

Mireille Enos

Blood-RED, Cherry-RED, Cranberry-RED, Tomato-RED, Red Carpet-RED, you name it you got at the 63rd annual Prime Time Emmy awards ceremony held in Los Angeles last night. It seemed the official colour of the night or at least the award show ceremony was RED which is why we’ve created a special category for actresses dressed in the colour to make the best dressed selection process a little easier.   ~Fashionwidget

OUR PICK: Nina Dobrev in DKNY

Runner- Up: Kate Winslet is Elie Saab

Malaika Arora-Khan

We love Malaika but even our love can’t save this poor choice of an outfit from fizzling on a global stage. It’s ghastly.

Genelia D'Souza

She followed Malaika with this very boring colour and it didn’t do much for her either. Alexander McQueen clutch or not, this look is a NO-NO.

Lisa Ray

That necklace does not belong anywhere near this outfit Lisa, the dress is just too easy-breezy for such a statement necklace and what is up with the shoes? We expected more from you.
