Taped October 3 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, the 2023 awards ceremony was a night for Black star-gazing. From Coi Leray, Safaree, and Sukihana to Kaliii, Flo Milli, and Yandy Smith, many of our favorite BET, music, and reality celebrities were in the building.
And they rocked their hottest threads for the celebrated night of Hip-Hop and culture, too.
Flo Milli’s bright and playful retro style mini dress and matching visor was everything. Sukihana’s purple, cutout sequin gown was a moment. And, Yandy Smith’s metallic gown shimmered as she glided down the carpet. Additional trends displayed by personalities on the carpet include various types of denim, faux leather play, bold colors, and skin.

The ceremony continues BET’s Hip-Hop 50 commemoration with appearances by Sexyy Red, GloRilla, Offset, DaBaby, and Fivo Foreign, just to named a few.
