Bold studs, fitted leather, and spiky accessories are just a few things that can catapult a look to rockstar status. At the BET Awards, it’s not uncommon to see some of our favorite stars giving us rock and roll vibes as they walk the red carpet. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!
Ciara showcased her edgy side at the 2010 BET Awards. Rocking a show-stopping paisley print mini-dress. All eyes were on the singer as she posed in the look that featured artistically designed laces and a matching studded belt. Naturally, the star donned leather booties for full-on rockstar vibes.
The gold studs, the gold zippers! Dressed in an extra-fitted leather look, Eve strutted down the green carpet at the 2011 BET Awards. Although the entertainer was all smiles, the daring ensemble was seriously bad a**. We were especially obsessed with her choice to rock a bold braided hairdo that cascaded down her shoulder.
2013: Trinidad James
Trinidad James went shirtless to live up to his rockstar persona. Styling in a bright yellow leather jacket featuring gold spaceship embellishments, the rapper took his look to new levels with fitted black jeans, layers upon layers of gold jewelry, and dapper-looking dress shoes with an unexpected twist: gold spikes!
Possibly one of the edgiest looks on our list, Serayah commanded attention at the 2015 BET Awards. The striking singer stopped the paparazzi in their tracks with a black cutout bustier, matching leather pants, and sexy platform boots. Of course, this ensemble wouldn't be complete without a dark lip.
2015: Joseline Hernandez
Joseline Hernandez proved that rockstar-inspired fashion can be extremely sexy. The reality star showed off her impressively toned body in this risqué leather fringe three-piece with chic black sandals to match. Rock on, sis!
