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.

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards took place on Monday night at the Skylight in New York. Young Hollywood was well rep’d by the likes of Amanda Seyfried, Joe Jonas, Chloe Moretz, Mia Wasikowska, Zoe Kravitz and Olivia Wilde. It was couple’s night as well with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, La La and Carmelo Anthony, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell and Cobra Starship‘s Gabe Saporta with designer Erin Featherstone making an appearance. The event was presided over by the steely eyes of Anna Wintour, so you know everyone rethought their outfits at least five times before heading out.

Partay time at Lincoln Center in New York yesterday! Stars poured in for the Time’s 100 Gala celebrating Time’s 100 Most Influential People for 2011. We’re proud to say that three of our Top 5 WTF people on the list turned up! Leading that parade was a gorgeous Blake Lively who debuted a new strawberry blonde ‘do. We love it, and we loved her in that sexy Zuhair Murad gown. We reckon she’s on the list for most influential boobs and legs, right? Rain, the South Korean pop star, just looked happy to be there. And Mark Wahlberg, as chiseled as ever, showed up with his sexyface on.
We also love Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari far too much, so we’re just going to pass on talking about their outfits. But we will talk about freshly brewed brunette Anna Kendrick who wore a black cocktail frock with a dangerously low plunging neckline! She better have put in a whole roll of double-sided tape for that one! Our Ultimate FAB Icon, Chris Colfer, had to be there too! Oprah‘s best buddy, Gayle King, showed up as well looking pretty fine in a cerulean blue gown, and the musician crowd was well-repped by Bruno Mars and ?uestlove. There’s more, folks, so check out our gallery below.

It’s awesome to see a sexy and healthy looking Serena Williams out at lunch with gal pals Kelly Rowland and La La Vasquez. The tennis star was hospitalized for a hematoma earlier this month, and two weeks later she looks completely healed. She’s pictured here receiving a cute ‘get well’ card from the girls. The trio met up at Cuvee restaurant in Beverly Hills as cameras trailed them because La La was also filming the meeting for a segment on her new reality show. All three ladies look stunning (duh) and Serena’s looking better that we’ve ever seen her – especially in that extremely flattering outfit. Work it!

Who knew these two were besties? That here getting a tattoo on the table is Kelly Rowland. And that here taking the photograph is apparent BFF La La Vasquez who tweeted, “@KELLYROWLAND getting her 1st tattoo!! I’m here to witness it!!” Well good thing she took an angle where Kelly didn’t seem to be writhing in pain, because that looks like a super painful spot to get inked. And Kelly’s always been on the skinny side, so that ribcage doesn’t have much covering! La La also tweeted a picture of the tattoo writing, “Tattoo is done!!! @KELLYROWLAND did it!”
When we saw the photograph of the tattoo, we seriously cracked up. If you’re curious to see what it is, check after the jump… Read more…
