BET Awards 2017: The Best & Worst Dressed


xThat time of year again where Twitter comes together as one big family to not only watch, but roast and praise moments of the BET Awards has come and gone already. Like always, viewers were able to witness the pre-show, a not-so red carpet, and performances by some of their favorite nominees. Hopefully, now you’ve been able to digest the entire show from start to finish; so check out EMCEE’s compiled list of the best and worst dressed for the 2017 BET Awards!


1.     Cardi B

Looking like she caught a lick! Best Female Hip Hop Nominee, Cardi B, absolutely nailed this look from head to toe in her Givenchy suit, Louboutin World heels, and Jimmy Choo clutch styled by Kollin Karter. Can’t decide whether her blonde bob was the icing on the cake or the “major key,” but either way she hit it right on the nose.

2.     Lala

Unbreakable Lala still rocking that revenge body, poise, and glow in a custom by Thai Nguyen Atelier. The ‘Power’ actress was styled by Maeve Reilly down to the toes with her Sophia Webster heels and H.Stern jewelry that perfectly complimented the dress adding to an even more effortless look for the carpet.

3.     Joseline Hernandez

The Puerto Rican princess stepped on the carpet looking like she is in fact, the winning team in her two-piece look. The VH1 reality star was just as one of a kind as her customized fit by designer, Kouture Kaoz, and shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti.

4.     Jada Pinkett-Smith

Come through! It comes as no surprise that the forever flawless, Jada Pinkett-Smith, made the list in her Alexandre Vauthier styled by Law Roach. The actress set it off with her Louboutin World heels, thigh-high split, and low-cut back to show off a little more melanin.

5.     Eva Marcille

From the hair to the significant touch of the boho-styled subtle accessories; Eva deserves all the praise she is receiving for this look, including ours! The dress is by Artisanal women’s label, Fillyboo, and the former ‘Top Model’ was styled by Seannita Parmer.


1.     Blac Chyna

Unfortunately, Blac Chyna did not make the list of ‘Best Dressed’ this year in her all black Michael Costello look. We’re all for revealing pieces that show off your features, but this piece did not hit this time around. However, the platinum blonde is always a ‘go’ for her.

2.     Justine Skye

Although one of our favorites was not in our favorite of the night on Sunday, she still strutted her stuff on the carpet with confidence. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who were not feeling her silver carpet look, as Justine addressed the controversy behind her dress via Instagram on Monday.

3.     Dascha Polanco

Sometimes simplicity isn’t always the answer. The ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress missed the mark with some details that made a lot of difference. This may be due to paints that were poorly tailored and unflattering; not to mention the ruffle detail that probably could have been minimized quite a bit.

4.     Karrueche Tran

We would literally love to say ‘issa look’ but unfortunately, it’s the opposite. Karrueche hardly ever disappoints, but she takes risks, something we love. However, each piece of the look paired separately may have been a better choice because the “CLAWS’ actress slayed the blonde bob, but did not slay the dress.

5.     Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton got the blonde bob memo as well, but we honestly wished she would have missed the memo and left the wig at home. It’s saddening because the dress exhibits class and perfection, but would have been a lot more flattering paired with the star’s onstage hairdo off the carpet.
