BET Awards 2014 – A look at the Winners and Celebrity Dresses
04 Jul, 2014
The BET awards were started more than a decade ago, in 2001. Organised by BET (Black Entertainment Television) network, these awards honour excellence in black actors, musicians and sportspersons. This year they were held on June 29 at the illustrious Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
The glittering ceremony was hosted by Chris Rock who was witty as usual. Some of the top awards went to:
Pharrell Williams won the best male R&B/Pop award whereas Beyoncé received the accolade in the female category.
Drake and Nicki Minaj won the best Hip Hop artist accolades in the male and female category respectively.
Critically acclaimed movie and recipient of 3 Academy Awards, 12 Years a Slave won Best Movie. The actors of the film i.e. Lupita Nyong’o and Chiwetel Ejiofor were awarded the Best Actress and Best Actor trophy.
Indeed, everyone is curious to know the winners. But another aspect about such events that is often highlighted is the celebrities and their designer garb. Here’s a peep into who wore what
Keke Palmer, recipient of the Young Stars Award, made heads turn in a bold white and gold dress by Alon Livne featuring cut-outs at the upper thigh and chest.
Paris Hilton, who needs no introduction, went for a white textured long-sleeve Michael Costello creation with some daring cut-outs.
Scandal star and yummy mummy Kerry Washington looked gorgeous in a Dolce & Gabbana short floral dress. She teamed the strapless number with a green clutch and white pointed toe heels.
Pharrell Williams with his outfit changes was the surprise package for the night. He wore a Levi’s jacket with friendship bracelets as pocket adornments. But the stand-out accessory worn by this rapper-singer was a Chanel rosary made from gold and real jade.
American actress and former Miss USA, Kenya Moore, looked smashing in a floor-length orange Victoria Beckham fitted gown. The outfit had a plunging neckline and black trimming right below the bust-line.
The BET awards 2014 were a splendid affair with some of the best American African artists being present and great performances by Pharrell, Beyoncé, Usher, Drake etc.
