Another BET Awards ceremony is behind us and it gave us more amazing red carpet looks than we can count. Several major trends emerged during this ceremony, and these five were leading the way.

Purple Dresses

Celebrities can’t get enough of purple and royal blue dresses these days, and Zendaya and Saweetie gave us pretty similar gowns in this color at the BET Awards.

Shiny Jumpsuits

Shiny jumpsuits were all the rage at this ceremony. Ciara’s Alexandre Vauthier combo is a case in point, while Cardi B even used her bedazzled black Dolce & Gabbana jumpsuit to reveal her baby bump.

Sheer Details

Cardi B wasn’t the only star whose outfit incorporated sheer details. Chloe Bailey, Summer Walker, and H.E.R. also fully embraced this trend.

Dramatic Slits

Dresses with dramatic slits are never going out of style, and Megan Thee Stallion and Taraji P. Henson were among the stars taking this trend to a whole new level at BET Awards.

Wardrobe Changes

Many of the stars attending this show didn’t only give us one, but two or more amazing looks at the BET Awards. Lil Nas X, Saweetie, Megan Thee Stallion, and the host Taraji P. Henson were only some of the stars who turned heads with their elaborate wardrobe changes.
