2015 BET AWARDS RED CARPET + PRESSROOM + CANDIDS PICTURES


Black-ish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross hosted this years BET Awards

The Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards took place this past Sunday (June 28) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California and I made it back into the country (Sidebar: I can't wait to do a travel post, hopefully in July or August about my trip!) just in time --actually I missed the first 45 minutes, to watch the Awards! 

Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, who star in ABC's hit television show Black-ish, were the hosts of this year's award show, which marked the 15th anniversary of the BET Awards.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Ciara and boxing champion Floyd Mayweather

Black-ish star Miles Brown (his smile *melts*) posed with his TV parents on the red carpet.

How freaking adorable is Miles in this picture?!
Singer/actress Brandy graced the red carpet.


These days Brandy is looking more like her youthful self from 1994-1999.

Whatever you are doing Brandy, keep it up!

Public figures: Blac Chyna and Amber Rose wore matching pantsuit and bustier *insert side-eye* in support of the United States Supreme Court's recent 'Marriage Equality' decision.

They looked sexy yet cool, but they tried it below.

I have a soft spot for Chyna and Amber... but they was doin' da most for attention. #NoGaaas


Fly Chicks & Dicks!

Empire's Serayah McNeil in House of Li Jon #Killin'It

Tracee wore a form-fitting white dress she helped design with designer James Knox and paired her look with white  'So Kates' Christian Louboutin pumps and tons of chunky gold bracelets and rings and tings! #Quan4Life


Power star Naturi Naughton wore a dress designed by the AWESOME young designer Kyemah McEntyre of MindOfKye, who had da internets going nuts earlier this month when a picture of Kyemah in a Kente-print prom dress hit the net.
Sidebar: I'm glad Naturi was able to bounce back after the 3LW drama a decade plus ago.

Naturi has been working consistently as an actress for several years now!

As for the other two members of 3LW...  josers never prosper! #BelieveDat 

Ciara rocked a Wes Gordon caged mesh gown and paired her look with Stuart Weitzman stilettos.

Kelly Rowland rocked what appeared to be a suede feathery black mini dress. Lovin' it!

Christina Milian wore a bejeweled two-piece 'fit by designer Erevos Aether that was GLORIOUS, and she completed her look with some strappy Jimmy Choo sandals!

I was really impressed with Christina's look, didn't know you had it in you Chris! #Stuntin'

Empire's star Jussie Smollett looked 'Dapper than Dan' in a purplish-blue suit.

Minor adjustments: Jussie should've definitely went with a different pair of shoes and his suit needed to be altered to fit, but he still looked fly! 

Actor Michael B. Jordan showed up on the carpet impeccably dressed!

Sidebar: I always feel guilty about how fine I think Michael is because he'll always be little "Wallace" from The Wire to me.

Bun'd Up

Russell and Ciara look so good together!

Rappers Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were snapped bun'd up on the carpet.

I actually included Fonzworth Bentley and his wife, actress Faune Chambers because I'm lovin' EVERYTHING about Fonzworth's suit! *ponders if I can get one made for myself*

Actress Quvenzhane Wallis

Actor Leon and his daughter Noelle Robinson (with Real Housewives of Atlanta star and model Cynthia Bailey)
