In honor of #FBF—and the recent nominee announcement for the 2021 BET Awards— we’re highlighting some of the most memorable looks spotted on the red carpet. Enjoy this list of fashionable moments over the years.
Fantasia Barrino shimmered and shined at the 2004 BET Awards. Sporting a black flapper-inspired mini dress all eyes were on the singer, and for good reason. Just look at how her fringed look complimented her radiant skin, perfection!
Vivica A. Fox brought her A-game to the 2005 BET Awards wearing a fabulous turquoise dress, featuring an embellished waistline. Take note of how the fashionable actress struck a pose to bring attention to a thigh-high slit that left us speechless on the red carpet.
Ring the sexy sirens because Niecy Nash was red-hot at the 2006 BET Awards. Watching her curves in a form-fitted maxi dress featuring shimmery beads, the Claws actress proved she’s got what it takes to make the best-dressed list. We even loved the matching flowers in her accessories.
Sporting his signature smile, LL Cool J arrived at the 2008 BET Awards looking cool and casual. Rocking a fly graphic tee and relaxed denim, the rapper and actor completed his streetwear attire with a grey NY hat. So much swag!
We couldn’t do a throwback list without including this photo of Drake at the 2009 BET Awards. The actor and rapper looked quite cheerful as he snapped a photo at the star-studded event rocking a yellow striped shirt, trendy cardigan, and stylish jeans.
We’re sure there will be plenty of memorable fashion on the red carpet this year.
Watch the 2021 BET Awards on June 27 at 8/9C p.m.
