You can always count on any BET red carpet to provide some high fashion “moments”, and last night’s BET Awards was no exception. The MET Gala would have been smart to reference “BET red carpet” when trying to get clueless celebrities to grasp the concept of camp. RuPaul’s zebra suit would have looked right at home given the profusion of sequins, pastels, neon, and sculptural pieces that walked the BET carpet. For example, take aspiring rapper/entrepreneur/wig maker to the stars Cliff Vmir (above). His title alone is plenty camp, but throw in a chartreuse vinyl jumpsuit and top it off with a day-glo Victorian fringed lampshade, you’ve got a weenie roast with s’mores for dessert.
Single-handedly annihilating the blouse industry, the 3 A-Migos, Takeoff, Offset and Quavo, ditched their customary jockey silks, and came in costume for their upcoming animated series The PowerExchangePuff Girls. In it, inspired by their new friend Adam Rippon, Townsville’s hardest rap group take on homophobia and childhood poverty in their community.
Living her best life as a newly minted Asian-American, Lil’ Kim is, apparently, also the captain of the Chanel corporate bowling league. I hope her dress got a good spray down with disinfectant before she laced herself in. You never know what kind of feet have been up in those things.
On a tangential note, today I learned that Lil’ Kim has a new reality show coming to VH1 called Girls Cruise featuring Mya and Chilli.
Please enjoy the many colorful, campy looks from the BET Awards red carpet in the gallery below!
