The 2012 BET Awards happened last night at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A, and as always, we’re here to give you the red carpet report. The fashion represented is a bit puzzling. Most of the ladies almost got it right. They were so close! Like Tatyana Ali, for instance. Her yellow-and-black ensemble would have been terrific on her, had it not been for that aggressive, vinyl-looking peplum. Or Taraji P. Henson, whose aqua colored dress was lovely, but the sparkly neckline made it look like she had fish scales. It’s hard to make Selita Ebanks look bad — her Falguni & Peacock dress was a knockout, but the sheer skirt made it look like her underpants were on display. Same with Kerry Washington. She always looks so elegant, but her nude, strapless Altuzzara top made us feel like she had forgotten to put something on, on top of her basque, and just ended up going out in her J. Mendel skirt. The bustier looks underwired within an inch of its life.
We also are ho-hum about Michelle Williams — of ex-Destiny’s Child fame. Nice lace dress, but reminiscent of a nightgown, much? Not fans of jumpsuits, either, and La La Vasquez‘s version didn’t fill us with joy. And why did LaurieAnn Gibson look like she had a onesie on? You catch our drift, right? This entire red carpet had some good picks, but each was undermined by some crazy detailing. Does that make it crazy good, or just plain crazy? You decide. Have a look at our gallery that has more looks including Willow Smith‘s, Chaka Khan‘s and Regina King‘s.
