See All the Killer Outfits (and Hair) From Essence Fest

Solange, Chance, Teyana and more.

Published July 5, 2017

The Essence Fest 2017 was LIT! Yup, the celebrities showed up, showed out and the New Orleans location only made the event even more spectacular.

Like a Mardi Gras without the beads, celebrities showed up in their most stylish looks to preform, enjoy the festivities, and even bust a groove — we see you, Teyana!

We know not everyone could make it to the four-day event of music, empowerment, community and entertainment, but we at BET have you covered. Below you will find the most memorable moments at this year’s Essence Fest. We're already planning for next year!
