BET Networks dominates the catwalk with its seventh annual Rip the Runway. Sexy duo Mehcad Brooks and Selita Ebanks strut their stuff as the hosts of the most fashion-forward night in style and sound, held at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom. This year's show will feature the collections of Rachel Roy, Tennille White, LaQuan Smith, Man vs. Machine, Lila Nikole, and Haitian line WISB (Way It Should Be) Apparel, along with dynamic performances by music heavyweights Wiz Khalifa, Keri Hilson, Fabolous, Lloyd, Melanie Fiona, Miguel and New Boyz.
Labeled as the most fashionable night on television, RTR pairs hip sounds with sexy style. The show premieres on Monday, March 21, at 10 p.m.
BET has once again teamed with Cossette Productions, the famed producers of the Grammy Awards and the record-setting BET Awards shows, to handle production of Rip the Runway. Stephen Hill, BET's president of music programming and specials, and Lynne Harris-Taylor, vice president of specials, will executive-produce the telecast.
Joining the sexy models on the catwalk will be the winner of the “Rip the Runway’s Amateur Model Contest." The competition finalists will first appear on BET’s 106 & Park to compete for the opportunity to walk the runway in Rip the Runway. The winning model will be chosen based on personality, photogenic appearance and the sexiness of his or her runway strut.
