Checking in on the Ladies at the 2017 BET Awards

Posted on June 26, 2017

Darlings, shall we walk our way through a highly curated list of BET Awards attendees and offer them completely un-asked-for opinions on their style choices?

No need to respond. We already know the answer.

 

Dascha Polanco in Bishme R. Cromartie

Miss Dascha doesn’t always make the best style choices for herself. She has a tendency toward exuberance and drama, but seems to prioritize both over, say, good fit and… well… taste. But this is not bad at all. The shoulder puff is a little bit much, but the simple white of the suit tends to mitigate it a little. If this had been pink, we might have hated it.

Not feeling the shoe color, though.

 

 

Garcelle Beauvais in Missguided

Great textile, but dresses like these always look like a swatch of fabric that’s been wrapped around someone and belted. We need a little structure to our garments – and so does she.

 

 

Kat Graham in Raisa & Vanessa

We’re surprised by how much we like this. We tend to hate most side and stomach cutouts. But the proportions are just right. The print, the fit, and the way each cutout is framed all help tremendously. Basically, it’s HER dress (in that it suits her perfectly) – and any quibbles we have don’t really matter.

 

La La Anthony in Thai Nguyen

Shrug.

Girl, we guess so.

 

 

Leslie Jones in Sello

LOVE the color and the basic style, but that modesty panel is almost offensively bad.

 

Queen Latifah

It gets the job done for her, but she’s worn styles much better suited to her than this. That dropped ruffle element is awful.
