Alicia Keys In CD Greene – BET Honors 2013

Alicia Keys in CD Greene - BET Honors 2013

Singer Alicia Keys, the ‘Girl on Fire,’ shined on the red carpet at the 2013 BET Honors at the Warner Theatre in Washington DC yesterday.

She wore a bold black CD Greene floor-length dress with a cutout shoulder and leather accents.

This dress is simple yet statement-making. The asymmetrical shape of the top is right on trend and adds some interest to the simple black piece.

She accessorized with basic gold hoop earrings and barely noticeable black heels. I think this look would have stood out and looked more polished with bolder jewels and a bright clutch.

Her slicked-back bun, a cat eye and red lips looked great and finished off her look nicely.

Gabrielle Union In Emilio Pucci – BET Honors 2013

Gabrielle Union In Emilio Pucci (Resort 2013)  - BET Honors 2013As host of last night’s BET Honors 2013, Gabrielle Union paraded out a crush of amazing quick-changes, as she took the stage at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.

But her Emilio Pucci Resort 2013 red-carpet look was just as attention-grabbing.

We’ve already seen Kelly Rowland at this same event in the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.

Gabrielle’s slinky, forest-green gown with its skin-baring cutout and figure-flattering silhouette was undeniably glam, and it was more interesting than the black version.

And her long, glossy hair and glowing makeup were gorgeous with the dress.

As it happens, the actress also wore Emilio Pucci to the BET Honors last year with similar success.

Kelly Rowland In Emilio Pucci – BET Honors 2013

Kelly Rowland In Emilio Pucci - BET Honors 2013

Kelly Rowland joined Halle Berry on the red carpet at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC., last night for the BET Honors 2013.

She wore an Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 black dress with a side slit and sheer sleeves.

It’s times like this when I understand why celebs move on to the most recently presented collections so quickly, because I feel like I’ve seen this look on the red carpet several times before.

As a result this look doesn’t feel so fresh despite the singer looking drop-dead-gorgeous.

Maybe the addition of a clutch or some stand-out jewels would’ve given this dress a new lease of life.

On a positive note, I love her curly ‘do and her light pink lip colour.

Halle Berry In Monique Lhuillier – BET Honors 2013

Halle Berry In Monique Lhuillier - BET Honors 2013

Halle Berry sported a refreshing new silhouette on the red carpet last night at the Warner Theatre for the BET Honors 2013 in Washington, DC.

Shunning her favoured tight-fitted, cleavage baring LBDs, she wore a striking Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 gown.

Her strapless chiffon frock with a fiery lave print featured a side slit, which the actress made full use of.

Brian Atwood gold ‘Rizzo’ sandals, a gold cuff and drop earrings completed her look.

Do you like that Halle switched things up, or with that hairstyle will she always give you a feeling of groundhog day?

Brandy Norwood In Balmain – 2012 BET Awards

Brandy Norwood attended the 2012 BET Awards in LA yesterday evening.

The singer had many functions on the night. Aside from walking the red carpet, she also performed and presented an award.

With so much going on it appears she forgot something.

She wore a satin Balmain Spring 2012 blouse with gold tone metal and clear rhinestone embroidery, but no pants.

It amazes me how Brandy made a shirt which cost approx $4,000 look so cheap.

Sorelina and Soffer Ari jewels plus black pumps with a gold padlock completed her look.

Monica Brown In Alexander McQueen – 2012 BET Awards

Monica Brown was one of the many performers who paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston at the 2012 BET Awards yesterday evening.

Her emotional rendition of Whitney’s gospel classic ‘I Love The Lord’ even had Soulja Boy shedding a tear.

Monica performed her tribute wearing an Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 dress from the ‘Plato Atlantis’ collection; the last produced by the late designer.

As a long-time fan of Alexander McQueen it’s not a surprise that she opted to wear this dress featuring a kaleidoscopic snakeskin print, v-neck and cap sleeves.

What is a surprise is to see this look as a rise-and-fall gown, as only mini dresses were presented in this print.

Opting to keep the same hairstyle she wore on the red carpet, she added nude pumps to her look.

farfetch.com and farfetch.com US are selling this iconic piece as part of their
Alexander McQueen archival collection.

2012 BET Awards

The 2012 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA on Sunday evening with several stars taking to the red carpet.

Selita Ebanks: The model sported a sexy, futuristic look wearing a Falguni and Shane Peacock dress with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. The silver clutch doesn’t work for me, even with the silver bead work on her dress, but the rest of her look scores highly.

La La Vazquez-Anthony: The TV personality opted for a ‘Studio 54-esque’ look wearing a shimmering Lois London jumpsuit. Her top-notch styling included a vintage Versace belt, Jimmy Choo heels and complementary Loren Ridinger jewels. A side-swept ponytail completed her look.

Monica Brown: The singer looked sensational rocking a berry-coloured look which featured a structured blazer and sequin pants.
