BET Awards Style: The Most Buzzy Looks of the Night (Like Keke Palmer's Crazy-Sexy Cutouts)


Robin Thicke’s “get her back” plea to Paula Patton wasn’t the only headline-making moment from Sunday’s BET Awards. There were also some very bold style statements made last night. Let’s discuss, shall we?

1. Keke Palmer’s Commando Moment: What undergarments (if any) go with a dress that features major hip-and-thigh cutouts? We’re going to guess Palmer had to get super-creative (and walk very carefully) in her white-and-gold Alon Livné mini dress.

2. Gabrielle Union’s Thigh-High Boots: Pairing a long white gown with a strappy sandal would have been way too expected. So the actress decided to bring a pair of over-the-knee black boots to the carpet — and she still managed to show some thigh thanks to the super-high slit on her Maria Lucia Hohan gown. It’s definitely a Look — though we don’t know how comfortable it was in the 80+° weather.

3. Zendaya Coleman’s Braids: Plaits are everywhere this summer, but we’ve yet to see someone wear their hair with so much attitude and sass. The 17-year-old star goes for super-long braided pigtails and a black snapback cap to complement her equally bold Emanuel Ungaro outfit.

4. Pharrell’s Button Malfunction: His hat stayed securely on for this entire performance, but Pharrell couldn’t get his star-printed cardi off, fumbling with it for at least 20 seconds. And of course Twitter exploded. Watch the clip below (the button meltdown happens around the 1:40 mark).

What did you think of the fashion at last night’s award show? Who was your best dressed?
