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.

I Hate to Flag a Fashionista so early in the New Year but Mariah Carey’s Aspen Sidewalk Style Begs the Question…


All the pictures featured in this fashion query were snapped outside the Joan Boyce Jewelry store (which is owned by the singer’s mother) during the holiday season and for what it’s worth, the new mum did look in high spirits as she happily posed each night for the paparazzi.

This jumpsuit would have been a winner had it not been for the super high waist belted look which seemed to create the illusion of a shorter torso on the leggy blonde. I love you Mariah but this look is a no-no.

I actually liked the above look for Mariah, no one can go wrong in all-black right? Wrong. If you throw on a pair of statement black suede boots, a statement black scarf with sequin accents, a black little black dress over leggings topped off with a statement puffy vest… Yeah, that might be a bit much, even on a diva.


Ms. Carey (ahem…Mrs. Cannon) managed to “WOW!” me when she stepped out in what looked like a black cat-suit topped with a belted poncho coat and chocolate coloured knee-high boots. Tres Bien, Mariah…more looks like this, please.
