RED CARPET FAB: Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, Common & Others DAZZLE At "BET HONORS 2012"

​ ​ ​ ​

Last night, FLOTUS Michelle Obama, Aretha Franklin and Terrence Howard were among the high profile celebs who came out to pay tribute to Mariah Carey, Spike Lee and Maya Angelou at "BET HONORS 2012." See red carpet pics inside...

Last night, Gabrielle Union played hostess as tons of celebs walked the red carpet for the "BET HONORS 2012" at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC.  The show, airing February 13 at 9pm on BET, honored Maya Angelou, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Spike Lee, The Tuskegee Airmen and Beverly Kearney.

One of my fave looks on her--perfect white dress.

Mariah hit the carpet in a nude and black form fitting gown--and for once, we actually love what she's wearing.  And it looks like her hubby Nick did too:

 

The 2012 honoree arrived on the arms of her husband Nick Cannon.  He's looking great since his release from the hospital.

MiMi hit the stage with Spike Lee and Stevie Wonder.

And even little Moroccan was brought up on stage as well.

The FLOTUS Michelle Obama was a presenter at the show and she looked stunning in red.

And on the red carpet, hostess Gabby Union posed with BET exec Stephen Hill.

Hot-ness.

And there was "nearly" a Destiny's Child reunion (sans Beyonce) as both Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams walked the red carpet and both ladies looked amazing. 

Willow Smith wore a long canary yellow dress.  This is the most covered up and age appropriate I've seen this little girl look in a while.

Soul singer Ledisi was looking quite fab.

TV's Judge Hatchett showed off her purple gown and cast.

The iconic Cicely Tyson arrive with designer b. Michael.

Anthony Hamilton posed with Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. 

Stevie Wonder was an honoree (spoiler alert - sources say he forgot some of his own lyrics!).

Kevin Liles attended with his gorgeous wife (and new mom) Erica.

Jill Scott was lifted and supported to the tee.  She looks beautiful as always.

"106 & Park" hostess Rocsi wore a revealing black gown.

BET News Anchor TJ Holmes walked the red carpet (fans self......he looks BETTER since leaving CNN!). 

Of course Randy Jackson came out to cheer on his good friend Mariah Carey.

Spike Lee (also an honoree) attended with his beautiful wife Tonya Lewis Lee.

Red Tails stars Terrence Howard (and daughter Aubrey) and Cuba Gooding Jr. paid tribute to The Tuskegee Airmen.

Dapper rapper Common was a performer.

And the Queen of Soul arrived with her fiance William 'Willie' Wilkerson.

Willow...??mmmm.. well at

Willow...??mmmm.. well at least she dosen't look like a clown this time, but she is too young for this look too. She really needs to get a "real" kids stylist. Not Momma Jada who dosen't always dress age appropiate.

DAYUM Kelly & Gabby are

DAYUM Kelly & Gabby are looking GOOD (as always). Michelle is working her dress too, but someone beat her face too damn much. She does NOT need that much makeup. Nick looks stressed, but boy is in shape, & dressed right!

I'm thinking Willow Smith got

I'm thinking Willow Smith got shut down after that Nicki-Minaj wig and short-shorts look she had on the other day, lol. Looks like Will may have picked out this outfit for his little girl and good too cause she looks great. Is that really the best pic available of Judge Hatchett, come on! Kelly Roland is hands down the best looking of the night, everything is working on her and Gabrielle Union comes in a close second. But where did that butt come from on Kelly? Is that implants, injections, or just some padding and Spanx? Tell me something cause I'm not crazy, Kelly used to be nearly flat as a board back there! And I'm talking really recently. These celebrities need to stop just busting out with all these new body parts like everyone is supposed to have amnesia. It's getting laughable and confusing. YBF, I know you're in the Knowles pocket's and therefore Kelly's protected by default but can we get a side-by-side comparison of Kelly here and Kelly in a similar form fitting dress maybe 6 months-1 year ago?

That dress that Mariah is

That dress that Mariah is wearing, is that an Alexander McQueen gown that Beyonce already rocked earlier in 2011? It kinda looks similar

Kelly Cicely Michelle Jill all look absolutely gorgeous....why does aretha's fiancee has a look on his face like he just hit the jackpot..marrying aretha

Kelly does it... period. She's so gorgeous....and looks incredible in that dress. I'd marry her tomorrow if she'd let me, no question! haha

what type of hair is Kelly

what type of hair is Kelly wearing? it looks niiiiiice! any suggestions?
hottttt's picture

Mariah looks crazy in the

Mariah looks crazy in the front in that dress...gotta co-sign whoever said Willow does not look appropriate in a floor-length looks like she stole that out of Jada's closet. Gabrielle on the show looks far more appropriate to the event than she did on the red carpet. Jill needs to take a page from Queen Latifah on how to dress formally. Rocsi suprisingly looks good and appropriate and even sophisticated. Didn't think she had it in her... Nick has a look on his face like he's getting tired of the Mariah circus....can't blame him there. I give them a year or two at the most....Cicely Tyson looks fabulous...Michelle Williams WTF? How do you look older than the oldest women there? And Aretha out on a cold night without a fur? Wow...

The FLOTUS looks amazing and

The FLOTUS looks amazing and stunning and majority of the pics should have been of her and I don't understand why Mariah Carey was a honoree when there are so many more african maericans who could have been honored and majority of the pics were of her and Nick and not a pick of others and next time focus the pics around the FLOTUS and other proud African Americans

Common looks delicious!

Common looks delicious! Michelle Obama looks like a million bucks. Kelly needs to ditch that poodle wig. Michelle (from Destiny's Child, don't even remember the girls last name) looks OLD AS HELL! She looks like one of my mama's friends. LMAO! Willow looks age appropriate? An 11 year old in a floor length gown is NOT age appropriate. I will never get used to Mariah and Nick; they look so odd. Mariah looks good though! Yes ma'am. Jill Scott could use a breast reduction. Geesh!

Gabby needs to cancel that

Gabby needs to cancel that kim k smokey eye crap…it looks terrible on her. Mariah is too extra for me…cute dress though…..her and nick make a cute couple. I hope his health has picked up…he looks yellow. Michelle looks amazing! Kelly….love this look on her….amazing! That booty looks enhanced…interesting. Oh lawd Michelle no no no no no Willow comes of as a lesbian to me…something about her. The rest of the post is boring.
???'s picture

Are u kidding me?? If anyone

Are u kidding me?? If anyone in this post looks flawless it's Gabby. I love her make up, but to each his own. I agree with everything else though, especially the part about Mariah being extra. And her dress would be cute on someone else.

Hey's picture

Kelly's dress looks like it

Kelly's dress looks like it came from the mall...I really wish she would go back to short hair and get rid of the weave. Her face is so beautiful and she rocks short hair really well. Michelle looks like Whitney Houston, and that's not a good thing. Old lady hair style WTH? First Lady looks GORGEOUS. Love the pop of color from her Willow and Kelly. I hate seeing everyone in black. BORING...

Gabby looks beautiful in her

Gabby looks beautiful in her white dress standing next to Mrs. O. Not sure about that off the shoulder drees on Mrs. O. Kelly looks stunning. Willow Smith looks cute in her yellow dress but why is she there. I dont like Mariah dress wrong color. Cicely looks classy. Kevin Liles wife looks hot. Nick and TJ Holmes are sharp. Randy Jackson looks a hot mess as usual. I'm afraid to see what Aretha has on under that coat. She still the queen of soul.

I was just about to say that

I was just about to say that for a change everyone looked FAB! Michelle Williams should use less make-up/foundation but otherwise she--and all of the women looked beautiful. Then...I scrolled down to the head-to-toe-mess that is Randy Jackson and Cuba-Gooding Jr's tight-ass vest! SMH... Common looks nice, though I have lost respect for him due to the beef between him & Drake, which Common initiated. Dude, you are supposed to be a 'conscious' rapper, a grown man & you go in on Drake for singing--and rapping? Jealous much? SMH? Other than that, everyone looked fab & for some reason I love seeing Mariah & Nick together. They look SO happy. Hotness!!

Unfortunately, hollywood,

Unfortunately, hollywood, black people are obsessed with white skin/lighter skin because Gabby and Kelly are some of the gorgeous women that should be in this same category with the list of sexy women in Hollywood. Mariah is beautiful but don't get the hype about her beauty. Another example of enslavement of white or light is better. Now, our first lady, Michelle Obama is simply stunning. However, the obamas need to slow down on turning into celebrities, inviting all these entertainers to the white house or showing up at different non political events. I know some black people will still talk foolish about them not supporting enough but just ignore those ones. Barack is not president of NAACP, he's president of United states of America. Obamas need to keep in mind that they are also politicians, and hold the highest position. So, you want to get different people of different backgrounds, class, status votes while keeping it sohisticated and classy. Terrence Howard is one confused, identity crisis guy, needs to get help.

I've never heard any hype

I've never heard any hype about Mariah Carey's beauty because she's not one. Jenny Craig definitely needs a new spokesmodel. Sure she lost the pregnancy weight but I never liked her body pre-pregnancy. She doesn't even look curvy, she just looks like a blob. But hey, if Nick likes it. On the other hand, I always hear people say how gorgeous Gabby is. She and Kelly might be talked about more in hollywood if she could get some decent acting roles and Kelly could be consistent with her music.

You are absolutely right

You are absolutely right about the President & First Lady and their near constant association with celebrities. It just doesn't look good. Also agree that Gabby & Kelly are gorgeous!!

Umm...I don't think she has

Umm...I don't think she has any power over who sits next to her at a game. Do you really think Gabby is buddies with Tyga? What's she supposed to say? Hey Etcha Sketch, you and your stripper girl need to move down a seat?!
CheyPie's picture

NOPE...but I made my point

NOPE...but I made my point WHY these CELEBRITIES, no matter how much money or high profiled it shouldnt alwayz represent the POLITICS and certain STANDARDS of the Big House!...Push for more than just wanting to be an actress and singer that gets to stand next to the first LADY, instead try being a LAWYER, DOCTOR, and ENGINEER while POSING with someone so ICONIC!!!!!!

If they didn't have Michelle

If they didn't have Michelle Williams name under her picture, I wouldn't have recognized her. What happened to the cute chocolate Michelle Williams? Bleaching your skin makes you look like a freak. The First Lady looks the part, gorgeous.
krazy's picture

I don't remember Michelle

I don't remember Michelle ever being chocolate, Kelly was the chocolate one. But if anything it's the make up that's making her face look a little lighter. I think she's wearing the wrong foundation. I'm tired of every celebrity, light or dark, being accused of bleaching.
