We have to give it to Tracee Ellis Ross, who co-hosted the show with Regina King. Ross, who also stars in BET’s Reed Between the Lines, rocked a floor-length Dolce and Gabbana gown bedazzled within an inch of its life. It also served as a nice counterpoint to the all-white, floor-length Calvin Klein she rocked earlier on the red carpet. View the slideshow below for other looks of the night from Regina King, Melanie Fiona, Taraji P. Henson, Jill Scott, Black Girls Rock founder Beverly Bond, LaLa Anthony (wearing Alessandra Rich), Elle Varner and Erykah Badu. Only Erykah Badu (pictured with BGR recipient, revolutionary woman and Birmingham native Angela Davis) could pull off the bedazzled shoulder pads.
And in other “haute” news: SCDD (@SameChicSouth) got retweeted by BET during the broadcast!
