2010 BET Awards – Nikki Minaj In Rochas by Olivier Theyskens

Better On The Runway Award
Nikki Minaj tried to go for an ethereal look on the red carpet at the 2010 BET Awards.

It was never going to work with that Wilma Flintstone hair colour.

The singer wore an ecru tulle Rochas by Olivier Theyskens archival gown from the Spring 2004 collection.

Her gown has been modified from a lingerie bustier to a halter and she added a large statement necklace to her look.

She tried to modify the look to suit her style, but in the process ruined a classic gown.

2010 BET Awards – Cassie In Charlotte Ronson

Best Dressed Award
Cassie was my best dressed at the 2010 BET Awards, and I don’t expect this to be a popular choice.

I love the cool summer neutral colour, the fact that she dared to bare her midriff on a hot summers day when everyone else was wearing long sleeves and Fall 2010 looks.

This is everything a Summer look at a music awards ceremony should be.

Her Givenchy shoes a bit too bulky, but at least they’re not black 😉

2010 BET Awards – Nia Long In Gucci

Most Graphic Award
Sporting her trademark cropped hairstyle, Nia Long would’ve stood out on the red carpet at the 2010 BET Awards.

The actress opted for a Gucci Spring 2010 ikat dress.

The strapless dress was accented with silver harness details around the waist, as she paired her dress with a studded clutch and those darn YSL Trib Two heels.

This is such a cute look, but I really would’ve preferred the runway heels with this look and maybe an orange clutch.

2010 BET Awards – Ciara In Balmain

The Tyra Banks “Fierce” Award
Ciara looked amazing at the 2010 BET Awards which was held on a hot summers day in LA.

Her Balmain brocade dress from the Fall 2010 collection was detailed with gold fringing plus leather and gold metal chains.

She opted to wear a different belt from the runway, which I prefer.

Ciara was also one of the best dressed at this event, but I’m getting hot just looking at her in this long sleeve heavily textured dress.

She totally event appropriate and looks fierce in this dress.

I really can’t fault her, she could’ve found something equally fierce from a Spring collection surely.

Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain cuff lace up booties complete the look.

What do you think?

Hot or too hot?

2010 BET Awards – Fergie In Antonio Berardi

Worst Dressed Award
When it comes to music awards ceremonies, usually Fergie wows in some sexy mini.

On the red carpet at the 2010 BET Awards this was not the case.

She looked awful wearing a pink and black tailcoat Antonio Berardi dress.

It looks cheap, tacky and home-made. I’m in total shock.

I’ve given her worst dressed not just because she was one of the worst at this event, but because she can do much better and she knows it.

Valentino shoes and Lanvin accessories complete her look.

2010 BET Awards – Ashanti

Best Dressed, But Over Dressed Award
Ashanti was one of the many stars to walk the red carpet at the 2010 BET Awards yesterday.

I love her dress. She was easily my best dressed at this event.

The colour is beautiful and the ruffles are delightful.

But I think Ashanti took a wrong turn somewhere because she was dressed like she was originally headed to the “Daytime Entertainment Emmy’s” which also took place yesterday.

Her stunning look feels too formal for a music event.

This is such a 2008 Kate Beckinsale’s way of dressing, who back then dressed like every event was the Oscars.

3rd Annual BET Honors

Gabrielle Union was one of the few at this event that didn’t bore me along with Taraji.

Gabrielle wore a figure hugging nude strapless gown with silver detailing. Nice dress, shame about the hair.

Taraji P. Henson also opted for nude Alberta Ferretti gown which was gorgeous against her skin, but the hunched shoulders really bother me.

There’s something very dated and home-made about Mya’s red strapless gown with a jeweled detail.

She obviously wanted to stand out on this red carpet – which she does – but for all the wrong reason.

Queen Latfiah continue to her slide into boringville.

Her LBD is nice enough, but in she needs to bring back the colour.

Something tells me I’ve seen Mary J Blige wear this one-sleeved dress before.

This is the best I’ve seen Tichina Arnold in a long while. Her black gown with a feathered skirt doesn’t often me.

This has to be one of the most boring and poorly dressed red carpet events of the year.

The BET Honors airs on February 1 at 8 pm on BET.
