Best Dressed at BET Awards 2012

The BET Awards happened this past weekend.  Usually I'm not a fan of some of the styles that walk down the Red Carpet at this awards show.  Sometimes the clothing is ill-fitting and not flattering or just downright too gaudy.  But, in the spirit of the entertainment industry the clothing usually personifies the characters of the entertainers.  Which can be a good or sometimes bad thing; depending on your perspective.

I had three personal favorites at this year's awards show.

My favorite was the simple white dress worn by Kim Kardashian.  I thought it was classic and a look that would be fitting on any woman.  It was an interesting blend of a simple silhouette with the contrast deep scoop back and side zip detail.  It was stunning on her.  I also loved what model Selita Ebanks wore.  Personally I thought the piece underneath the sheer black skirt could have been slightly longer but, that's just me.  I loved the detail in the design.  I thought it looked fantastic on her.

Finally, on a cultural note, I loved the African inspired dress Monica wore in her heart-felt performance tribute to Whitney Houston.  There were so many hits and misses at this year's event.  Other notable hits I loved were Beyonce's yellow-gold gown and Meagan Good's white gown.
