6 Times Celebs Wore Their Hottest Shades During The BET Hip Hop Awards

A celebrity's shades have multiple functions.

It may be a little-known fact, but celebrities wear sunglasses for more than just looking cool on a red carpet. Instead, this stylish accessory acts as a barrier of protection for our favorite stars from being blinded by the constant flashing of cameras.

Also, their eyewear serves as one of the quickest ways to complement the face. As we gear up for the BET Hip Hop Awards 2021, we are digging in our archives and highlighting the top six sunglasses that caught our gaze on both the red carpet and during the ceremony. Keep scrolling to see the eye-catching shades!
