This year’s BET Awards red carpet is certainly an example of fashion at its finest, with the ceremony paying homage to the “Year of the Black Woman” and honouring their influence and impact on the culture.

Hosted by Taraji P. Henson, the 2021 awards saw a star-studded line up of musicians—from Andra Day and H.E.R. to Tyler, The Creator and DJ Khaled—take to the stage to offer up seriously spectacular performances.

However, eyes were mainly on the red carpet, thanks to a series of jaw-dropping fashion moments that saw stars head back to the carpeted runway once more sans masks, now that the U.S. has reduced its COVID-19 restrictions.

From Zendaya‘s moment in archived Versace—previously worn by Beyoncé herself during a 2003 performance of “Crazy In Love”—to Lil Nas X’s Andrea Grossi toile de jouy floor length number, there was plenty of show-stopping fashion moments on offer.


As promised, we’ve rounded up the best (and most chic) fashion moments from the BET Awards 2021 red carpet below. Prepare to be blown away.
