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.

Fashion Update: Solange Knowles Stuns in Yellow + More Fascinating Looks from the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fashionwidget’s Favourites

Karolina, Solange & Kate

Zoe & Padma

June, Hilary & Selita

From Zoë Saldaña’s noir sheer cut-out Prabal Gurung to Solange Knowles in a yellow and white Marni mini, the fashions of the CFDA fashion awards were certainly a hot topic for discussion this year. I especially appreciated the understated elegance of Padma Lakshmi’s intricately detailed Naeem Khan gown, in a sea of colourful statement ensembles, I think she managed to stand out in black just like Zoë Saldaña. June Abrose glittered in silver sequins. Hilary Rhonda colour-blocked in cut-out perfection and Selita Ebanks was a vision in white. With the absence of Lady Gaga (a previous CFDA fashion award recipient) who stole the show and not to mention all the attention last year, there was room for all sorts of fashion statements this year. Fashionwidget, narrowed it down to the nine pictures as seen above, we also loved Devon Aoki in her amazing red and black Alice+Olivia strapless gown. Unfortunately, our photographer was unable to snap a photo of her. Never fear, I will re-blog or update this post if I stumble upon a photo of her (in the dress) that I can legally upload.
