BET AWARDS '09: Red Carpet BEST DRESSED

While some foolywang hit the BET Awards stage, the red carpet had some fabulous looks on it beforehand.  Here are our Best Dressed picks:

I'm overlooking the homewrecking ways to say Alicia Keys looked gorgeous in this Moroccan Jenny Packham mini dress and nude Louboutin sandals. Even though the dress appears turquoise here, it actually showed up as black and sheer on tv. OK, she rocked two different but very similar dresses. Skin and hair are looking fabulous as well.

Trey Songz held it down for the fellas looking sexy in all white, black checkered button down, shades, and black shoes.  The white tuxedo pants were a good look.

Loved Zoe Saldana's Calvin Klein cut out dress.  Gorgeous look for her.  She rocked gray Brian Atwood heels with the dress.

LeToya Luckett rocked one of the hottest Balmain dresses I love seeing on the red carpet.  It's a daring look that not everyone will love, but I believe she pulled it off...sans those Alejandro Ingelmo shoes.

Taraji P. Henson rocked a backless black long Kaufman Franco dress.  Looked hot...sans the wig. More pics when you read the rest...

Didn't love Tyra's look on tv, bbut it looks great here on the red carpet.  She rocked the male inspired look with the pants and vest and bow tied blouse.  She kept it feminine though with the satin and sky high heels.  Something about it that I love...

Tyrese was looking yummy on the red carpet in a basic black slightly shimmered suit.

Amber Rose pulled off this Alexander Wang dress quite nicely.

But so did Amerie.  Check out the Who Ran It between these two ladies here.

And Lance Gross looked like chocolatey goodness in his lavender suit jacket, crisp white button down, and dark jeans. Good summer look for the BET red carpet.

Gorgeous looks for the ladies. Stay tuned for the rest of the red carpet pics....

That was the worst tribute I

That was the worst tribute I have ever seen in my life!! WTF happened to BET??? I am so damn mad that they set our asses back 30 years with all that damn coonery. Someone needs to call children services on Lil Weezy's a$$ for real.And T.I. needs to send his bytch to school "ASAP" because that is one dumb azz illiterate bytch,not even thanking Rihanna who helped him win that damn award. Bobby Brown is a true crackhead until the day he die,pathetic bastard!!Monica outsang Keyshia 10 to 1,Jamie foxx's potty mouth got on my damn nerves!! Ciara,sit the fuck down with your non singing tranny looking a$$! Ne-yo killed it,Keri Hilson,bytch please go back to producing!Johnny Gill is a homo,STF down all of them throwback artists because they sounded like shyt!Be'yawn'ce,WTF was that??? CAMEL/HOE'V,SIT YOUR OLD ASS DOWN SOMEWHERE!!! And for the all the people thats calling A.Keys a damn homewrecker, STFU? Why is it that everytime something goes down women always wanna blame the woman?? First you blame Rihanna for getting her face twisted,Now you blame A.Keys for breaking up a damn marriage!! When are black women ever gonna let these sorry a$$ men take responsibility and blame for the shyt that they create?? Wake up Black Folks or you will always be on the outside looking in!!

Last night was the best I've

Last night was the best I've ever seen Alicia Keys look. Usually, there's about one or two things off with her look; but last night, her red carpet look and the dress she wore when she accepted her award were really nice. Her hair was very nice, too. I like the natural look, instead of that long, huge wig that she had been wearing most of last year. Oh, and most of everyone else looked pretty decent too.

Now c'mon Tasha! You know

Now c'mon Tasha! You know Tyra'a weave was WACKALICIOUS!!!!
Ms. Suzy's picture

I will agree. The awards were

I will agree. The awards were WACKALICIOUS!! More than usual. And I was SUPER dissapointed they had nerve to dedicate the show to Michael. NI**a puulllease. Michael wasn't a half stepper and this show was SO extremely sloppy and the OJays got a better tribute than Michael. These are suppose to be professionals.. Last minute or not they should have been able to pull it together. Ne-yo was the ONLY one who I was happy with his tribute to Michael.. Sounded beautiful not to mention I could actually hear it.. And that's another thing.. Don't these folks do sound checks? HORRIBLE quality sound. Neyo and Beyonce the ONLLY ones whose sounded like they did a check. And I have to disagree with folks on Beyonce's performance. She made a wise choice. Dont compete with Michael. If you can't out beat him or at least do him justice dont' F with it. I loved that she choice a song no one expected out of her.. C-mon Black folks have some culture her song and performance was a breath of fresh air from the rest of the shenanigans.. But what I wasn't feeling is that Tina didn't bring a brush to comb out that nappy ass weave B was rocking.. Damn shame all that money and her head was Tore up. The throw backs were lame as hell. Bobby's been eating wayyy to much steak n skrimps soon as the show opened and they started dancing i was like tell Day 26 to sit the fuck down.. Huh?? What? New Edition oh HELLL naw. Notice the camera angles kept cutting Bobbys OFF ass out. call him "cant get right" Where did Ralp Tresvants voice go?? Puberty F'd him up. Alicia Keys looked GORGEOUS.. She didn't have to say a damn thing just WOWSERS!... And Joe... Ohhhh Joe.. Mean, Publicity starving ass.. I see why Michael felt as he did about this man. WTF you doing out? I don't care if fuckin Every station in the nation was doing a tribute you just lost your fucking BABY 3 damn days ago.. SITCHO ass in the house and console your wife and Mikes kids.. Too busy promoting a damn label no one cares about old man. He can't beat anyone into shape anymore can barely pay attention. Then on the carpet "we just lost a super star" Naw Nigga you just lost your fuck'n son! He made me more than upset. Notice when Michael was alive Joe seemed more humble and in shut the fuck up status now he feels froggy and wants to speak out. Like all of a sudden it's the Joe Jackson show. *sigh* over him.. Beyonce showed more emotion (sincere) then Joe. And poor Janet. We all know how hard it was for her especially being so private to come out and speak on her big brother.. I just wanted hug her. The show was an absolute Bummer!

i mean wat can u say this was

i mean wat can u say this was really BAD!!..there is no excuse for this i dodn't care if they had 3 days or 3 hours .. it would have been best not to change the whole thing but perhaps have another event all together to give A PROPER omage to the man. Where the heck was usher and chris brown??

Listen, I thought the show

Listen, I thought the show was a 7 on a scale of 1-10. It could've been better, but you could tell the whole show was rushed. I'm done with watching the BET awards same people get the same awards every year. Wasteful. Maybe it was me but what was up with Tyra's weave or wig. Someone didn't spend enough time on her hair, they ought to be kicked in the ankles. Also I could tell that Beyonce was tired in the show. I know she was doing concerts just about everyday up until the Bet Awards. To wrap it up, I think BET should've waited until after the awards to do a celebration tribute for Mike. That way things could've been in order instead of everybody shouting out their rest in peace moments on camera. That just seemed fake for most not all. okay over and out!

Y'all women are haters. Did

Y'all women are haters. Did Alicia wreck y'all home, if so how can you call her a homewrecker? You don't know anything but word of mouth which already showed that she isn't one. LMAO @ these ppl saying Alicia legs are chunky...Alicia's legs are fit. When she walked you could see the Muscles in her thigh, that's how you know that's sheer meat and muscle not fat. She runs and trains for marathons alot, which builds muscle. Y'all must be some unfit chicks. LMAO Jamie, Tigger, Neyo sure did love what they seen last night. "She's 100% authentic, Her black is beautiful" LMAO

First Jay Z is hella childish

First Jay Z is hella childish and BET is hella dumb for letting certain people control the show. Beyonce is the headliner almost every year and If they really cared about thier show and ratings they would think through that. The show was wack with a few high points. Real music is D.O.A. You got people hoppin' out of bed and stuff on stage, so class less. Just because it is on the radio does not mean it should make the performance stage of such a highy aniticipated show. The shows were the best back when Michael performed. when real music was prominent. They are trying to cater to the much younger crowd, but should set this apart from the R&B and real soulful music. Call me BET I have some great ideas. Question? Does matthew Knowles and Jay Z really have it on lock like the mafia like that. Once Bet says screw them the show must go on then they will have a descent show. 1 monkey don't run the show.

MsPlusSizeFashionista: I was so disappointed in Beyonce’s performance.. Love her but WTF was THAT about? She didn’t win us over like that, she needs to go back to how she started…. This fairy tale wedding dress mess was awful! omgosh!! i sooo agree...it was just a huge wtf moment for me...

Overall I think the awards

Overall I think the awards show was unorganized. I labeled it as such when the Star Trek lady came out on stage late...Stephen Hill, boo, it's the recession. Act like it! The show was far from a MJ tribute, but I enjoyed the talented singers and two rappers.

I would call anyone a

I would call anyone a homewrecker who willing become involved with someone who is married. It doesn't matter if they are on bad terms or not. That is what's wrong with society and their morals. There's no "ifs, ands, or buts"! You are married until the judge declares you as divorced! This includes Gabrielle Union among other celebrities.

I have mixed feelings about

I have mixed feelings about the show Seeing as I ended my BET boycott to watch the show...I was mostly Disappointed the worst part is that EVERYONE was watching because BET was supposed to be doing an amazing Michael Jackson tribute they tried, and you have to give them props for trying, but there just wasn't enough time to make it right! ...the show was waaayy too long! ...they should have cut Lil' Wayne, Soulja Boy, Don Cornelius, Keri Hilson and Ving Rhames (sp?) completely out of the show! ... Chris Brown DEF should have been allowed to come (so what if Jay-Z didn't like it!!?) ....Mariah, MJB, Justin Timberlake & Usher should have been there ....Beyonce should have just sung a Michael song! But...the OJays tribute and the old school performances were great! As well as the 'Blame it' performance and Maxwell and Ne-Yo rocked it too. Hopefully a REAL Michael Jackson trubute will happen SOON, MTV will probably end up doing one a million times better than this ish (sad but true)

the whole show was wack for

the whole show was wack for one main reason; MJ was not only a singer...he was a dancer. You have WHOLE TRIBUTE AND NOT ONE SINGLE DANCER. NO USHER, JT NOT EVEN GINUWINE?!? fcq outta here with that rubbish. Word is from a tweet from one of Cbrezzy's dancers is that Jay Z did him dirty and made him not perform. An MJ Tribute with No CB = Epic Fail. Why da hell did HOV perform? He dont sing pop and he dont dance. DOA aint number one on nobody's charts...these old ass *****z need to take a back seat. Only thing worse than HOV performing woulda been Diddy. All these played out rich mofos still wanna be in the limelight...go play in traffic Jigga

ALICIA A HOMEWRECKER! I AGREE

ALICIA A HOMEWRECKER! I AGREE TASHA.!!! . WHO ARE U BEAUTIFULDAIDREAMER TO SAY ALICIA DIDNT WRECK A HOME, U MUST BE A PART OF HER CLEAN UP CREW. SHE DID ASSIST IN WRECKING A HOME AND SHES BEEN SLEEPING WITH A MARRIED MAN FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW. ITS SAD TO LISTEN TO HER RIDICULOUS SPEECH ABOUT CAING ABOUT PEOPLE AND THEIR PAIN, WHEN SHES HALF THE REASON OF A FAMILY BREAKING APART. SHES SUCH A FAKE. WHY HASNT SHE EVER MADE ONE COMMMENT ABOUT HER AND SWIZZ? ITS BECAUSE SHE KNOWS ITS WRONG AND SHES WAITING FOR IT TO DIE DOWN SO SHE CAN ACT LIKE IT NEVER HAPPENED OR SHES WAITING TILL IT DIES DOWN THEN FINALLY BRING HIM OUT AFTER HE IS ACTUALLY DIVORCED. TRIFE CHICK beautifuldaidreamer: Internet beef is lame: Taraji looks gorgeous!! I love that dress on her. Very sexy…I like Tyra’s look but that got damn wig! No ma’am!Alicia was working that dress. The homewrecker comment was classless, btw Tasha. How she wreck an already broken home?Trey looks yummy. Could just eat his lil sexy self up lolTyrese looks good too. Woo, it’s gonna be hard to work today.Lance, Lance, Lance. That’s all I can say on him…

I definitely would not say

I definitely would not say that that wrapped up mummy looking thing on LeToya is a best dressed item...I hated it and Taraji's nipples were showing. lol. Every1 else looked great...actually everybody looked really good, except for Melody Thornton...that was just wrong.

+Tiny and Toya need to be

+Tiny and Toya need to be exiled until they take speech classes. And looking at Tiny makes my eyes and stomach hurt. +Alicia Keys looked beautiful! I want the entire look! I just wished she would've performed. +Jamie Foxx killed it with his hosting duties and peformances. He made me fall in love with "Blame It" all over again. He was too funny throughout the entire show! +Drake had a great performance even being confined to the stool. I am giving him and Weezy the side eye for having the elementary girls on stage. So not appropriate. +I'm sorry, but Trya looked a hot mess. Were those satin pants? Her outfit had zero creativity and effort. She is too fab for such failure. +And Janet had such poise and grace. To address the world at such an emotional time for her and her family doesn't even begin to show the beginning of the elegance of Ms. Jackson. She is a true lady. Her streng th is amazing.

Ok let me quit, too much for a Monday morning. Tyrese looks damn good, "Jody, my Jody" I actually like Tyra's look, sans the high ass heels, she's already a giant! IDK, I just can't get with Kanye and Amber together, SMH, I just can't. Maybe in time. Taraji is beautiful, just needs to get rid of that wig, like everyone keeps saying. Alicia brought it, homewrecker and all! Beyonce... NOT THIS TIME AROUND, maybe next time.

Toy: LMAO!!!!I was pulling panties out the drawer throwing them at the tv. Maxwell is the business!And I thought the same thing about the BBD song. That’s the best part.There were some great moments but OVERALL that was the worst show ever!As a former TV producer: I would have opened with a tribute. Kept the “My fav MJ moments” before commercial. I would have also kept Neyo’s performance. And ended with a huge performance at the end with Usher, Chris Brown, Ginuwine and Omarion.The rest should have been axed because the stars would have said something before their speeches anyway. They still would have dressed in honor of Michael. Debra should have come up with a Michael Jackson performer of the year award for future shows in honor of Michael. And she should have previewed a King of Pop Tribute special that they are working on for later this month…or SOMETHING!!BET just tried to do too much and the result was sloppy.Oh, and BET, You can send me my check for those ideas. Get it together! Maxwell's performance wasn't that great to me. He sung off key a bit to me and I'm a huge fan.

I'll just repost what I said

I'll just repost what I said last night from Facebook...so mad: SOURCE AWARDS>>>> BET AWARDS. I'm ashamed for Janet. Coonery, people on drugs, bad jokes, mad curses/bleeps, unorganized, promotions, false advertising, etc. I thought the Jamie Foxx show ended on Channel 11 long ago! 3 days is more than enough...everyone should know Michael Jackson's songs/dances. No dance tribute? O'Jays better than most performances. BET USED MJ FOR RATINGS. HOW DARE YOU. F your stance Debra Lee --------------------------- You have undone everything since the Presidential election. CNN was covering this too? I don't think they have enough footage about a MJ tribute to cover 10 min. Like people said, BET SHOULDA DIED SO MICHAEL JACKSON CAN PAY THEM A TRIBUTE....The hell! -------------------------------------- 30 extra minutes for what? People stuttering/can''t read prompts, Debra's flapping arms, Stephen running away, lies, Baby mamas accepting awards, Drake remaining handicapped, Folks talking about MJ & Gun comparisons, Young kids dancing to "Every Girl in the world," Homewreckers getting humanitarian awards (ok I kid), Folks acting like they aren't gay, Chris Brown banned...MTV WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST! ------------------------------------------- Don's women beating old ass on stage but not Chris Brown? Where was Mariah singing "I'll Be There?" Alicia Keys not asked to perform? Beyonce doing her damn tour routine? The F she change? No Usher? Ciara singing and not dancing? ----------------------------------------- LET'S NOT FORGET THAT WACK OPENING SONG WITH BOBBY BROWN LICKING HIS LIPS -------------------------------------------- BET COULDA RIPPED OFF A YOUTUBE VIDEO. Nobody can do a decent powerpoint slide? The hell? Not one of my song predictions came true. Who did they ask? I saw an 80s tribute... BET was all over the trending topics on Twitter. TMZ gonna have a field day ---------------------------------------------- BET AWARDS HIGHLIGHTS: Jay cut his bushy hair, O'Jay/"dancing and shit", Janet appearance, Maxwell & the END--coulda been done in the first 30 minutes.. waste of space

CHRIS BROWN WAS IN TIME-OUT

CHRIS BROWN WAS IN TIME-OUT WHERE HIS ASS NEEDED TO BE. NOT COMMING TO THE SHOW WAS THE BEST DECISION HE EVER MADE. THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO CHOREOGRAPH ANY BIG DANCE NUMBERS ANYWAY, THEY NEED AT LEAST A WEEK FOR THAT. IT WAS SUBTLE AND RESPECTFUL, HIS FAMILY IS STILL GRIEVING, HE'S NOT EVEN IN THE GROUND YET. CHILL OUT. THERE WILL BE SEVERAL TRIBUTE CONCERTS ENTIRELY DEVOTED TO ALL OF HIS WORK VERY SOON. THEY NEED TO TAKE THERE TIME AND DO IT RIGHT. THIS IS NOT ABOUT CHRIS BROWNS PUBLIC REDEMPTION OR COMEBACK, ITS ABOUT CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE ONE AND ONLY KING OF POP.

even though there were talks

even though there were talks of a "Michael Jackson Tribute" I knew I was gonna be disapointed by there efforts! And it wasn't due to the BET producers because they worked there ass off, it just goes to show how talentless and egotistical many artists are today. Jamie Foxx was an EXTREME embarassment, unnecessary cursing, sloppy. I can only look forward to the MTV music awards for a proper tribute, hopefully they'll have time to include real artists..jeez!

Not going to work at all 3. Gonna fall asleep at work today and be grouchy.Was it me or did anyone else feel up and down about the show. These are the acts that made me want to put my tv on mute or change til their act was over.*New Edition - Bobby looked swollen and Ralph and him sounded a mess* Guy - Aaron Hall WHAT THE HELL!!! *Soldier Boy Tell Em - no energy could have been good guess he had no budget* Ms. Hilson - What the hell was that! Sounded a Hot Sh*!ty Mess* Ciara - I like you but WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT! TUNE IT UP DAMNIT* Drake, Lil Wayne and friends - The way Jamie hyped Drake up I got excited and then when he was just blah and then lil wayne came out I got mad and screamed the N word at my people and walked away! (Prior to their performance I was loving my people)Higlights!!!!!* Tyrese, Trey Songz, and Johnny Gil = Pure hotness!!!!! Sounded so so so so good* Maxwell = Flung my panties at the screen* KeKe Palmer = YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!*Jaamie Fox with Snoop, Travis Barker, and T Pain had me screaming like I was there* The Ojays = had me standing up jamin like i was there (remembering my parents blasting them all during my childhood on 8 hour summer road trips)* And Keisha and Moncia - For once Keisha did a good job and Monica you killed it* BBD - had me dancing (only part i really wanted was the AAaaaahhhhaaaaaahhhhaaa yeah at the end of poison!)The movie preview with Wanda the Ugly Girl and Shanaynay had me LMBAO. I would really pay to see that!!!! Overall it was good LMAO!!!! I was pulling panties out the drawer throwing them at the tv. Maxwell is the business! And I thought the same thing about the BBD song.

I only watched the entire BET

I only watched the entire BET awards show yesterday because there was all of this talk about a michael jackson tribute. The show was truly an embarassment and disappointment. It is always pathetic,but made it more so because they made this huge deal about paying tributes to michael jackson. I may be out of line in saying this,but it makes me think that they used his name to pull in ratings.
nikaboo's picture

I think the moral of the

I think the moral of the story is that no artist will ever excite us like MJ did. We saw that through the performances last night. If you were to put together all of the artists who performed last night (with the exception of the O'Jays) they still couldn't equal MJ. The stars of today suck.

The only thing I would add is

The only thing I would add is that BET is an embarrassment to the Black community. They set us back 20 years with the foolishness they allowed to be portrayed on stage. The apex of foolishness is when Wayne hit the stage singing F-All The Girls In The World...with young teen girls on the stage. Now, if the song had to be censored the way it was for television, why would we allow it to be shown on television that young black girls were on stage partaking in the performance. That one I did not get. Im not hating on rap or hip hop. Wayne is all good with me. I just thought it was inappropriate for the kids to be on stage, and two, not the time to do that song with the show theme being a tribute to MJ. Just my ops...

I must admit the show was a

I must admit the show was a bit dry but the show hasn't been good since Will and Jada hosted(that was the best) it has gone downhill since then. Also was it just me or was it a little insensitive for Joe Jackson to be promoting his new record label on the red carpet. I found it to be a little ditasteful. Janet had me nearly in tears. Could've done without beyonce' rather had seen Letoya perform. Who told Ciara she could sing? Was Ving Rhames Drunk? He took that Baby Boy skit a little too far. Why almost everyone who sang sounded a mess except jaime, neyo, and beyonce. Alicia looked lovely and I wish people would stop calling her a homewrecking because if you weren't there then you don't know what truly happened so STFU!!!! I think Chris Brown shoulda been there so what if Jay-z wouldn't have performed because his performance wasn't all that anyways. Overall the show was all over the place!

beautifuldaidreamer:

beautifuldaidreamer: Internet beef is lame: I’m embarrassed because there were probably people who never watched the BET awards watching last night. There was an article on CNN’s website about how BET was going to pay tribute to Michael on the show. And according to the comments here, the tribute, or lack thereof, was disappointing. BET, do better. I’ve been on a BET boycott for about 7 years and they never cease to remind me why. AMEN!!!!!!!

Alrite I know it was last

Alrite I know it was last minute but it was a big let down how you celebrate Micheal jackson and Don't Dance.. Beyonce okay we know you can sing but pay some tribute or sing one of ur eight singles.. and Ciara Should have dance i'm glad she can sing ok now but if you want to show tribute to Micheal Dance. and Jaimie Was a Good host and when he came out dancin it was too funny..

I'm embarrassed because there

I'm embarrassed because there were probably people who never watched the BET awards watching last night. There was an article on CNN's website about how BET was going to pay tribute to Michael on the show. And according to the comments here, the tribute, or lack thereof, was disappointing. BET, do better. I've been on a BET boycott for about 7 years and they never cease to remind me why.

I had a feeling that if

I had a feeling that if anyone stayed up and watched the long azz show like i did one of three things were going to happen 1. People were either going to work late today 2. Not going to work at all 3. Gonna fall asleep at work today and be grouchy. Was it me or did anyone else feel up and down about the show. These are the acts that made me want to put my tv on mute or change til their act was over. *New Edition - Bobby looked swollen and Ralph and him sounded a mess * Guy - Aaron Hall WHAT THE HELL!!! *Soldier Boy Tell Em - no energy could have been good guess he had no budget * Ms. Hilson - What the hell was that! Sounded a Hot Sh*!ty Mess * Ciara - I like you but WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT! TUNE IT UP DAMNIT * Drake, Lil Wayne and friends - The way Jamie hyped Drake up I got excited and then when he was just blah and then lil wayne came out I got mad and screamed the N word at my people and walked away! (Prior to their performance I was loving my people) Higlights!!!!! * Tyrese, Trey Songz, and Johnny Gil = Pure hotness!!!!! Sounded so so so so good * Maxwell = Flung my panties at the screen * KeKe Palmer = YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!! *Jaamie Fox with Snoop, Travis Barker, and T Pain had me screaming like I was there * The Ojays = had me standing up jamin like i was there (remembering my parents blasting them all during my childhood on 8 hour summer road trips) * And Keisha and Moncia - For once Keisha did a good job and Monica you killed it * BBD - had me dancing (only part i really wanted was the AAaaaahhhhaaaaaahhhhaaa yeah at the end of poison!) The movie preview with Wanda the Ugly Girl and Shanaynay had me LMBAO. I would really pay to see that!!!! Overall it was good
