The Season’s Best Runway Looks Ruled the 2022 BET Awards Red Carpet

The annual BET Awards continues to be a prominent highlight of spring/summer awards show season – in step with the Billboard and iHeart Radio Awards – but has seamlessly carved out its lane within the music and entertainment sector. And for 2022’s big occasion, the season’s best runway looks ruled the event’s red carpet.

Collectively known as “Culture’s Biggest Night,” the 2022 BET Awards honored Black excellence and achievement within music, television, film and sports, bringing some of the industry’s biggest names to its main stage. Headlining performances from Lizzo, Jack Harlow, Latto and more moved audience members to their feet, while surprise performances from Lil Wayne, Brandy and Mariah Carey, along with a Sean “Diddy” Combs tribute performance and BET Lifetime Achievement Award win – featuring a special presentation from Ye – filled Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater with thunderous applause.

Outside of the arena, event attendees got to shine and share their looks for the event on the mile-long red carpet, with stars rocking the most prominent labels, from Louis Vuitton to Casablanca. Rae Sremmurd, Wale, Giveon, Lil Uzi, Rick Ross, Jacquees and more turned up the red carpet heat in a variety of looks that included treated denim, streamlined tailoring, wide-legged pants, luxury sneakers and bright colors.

BET Style Director, Tira Urquhart, commented on the night’s looks and the importance of the event, stating: “I noticed the ombré and bright suit color trend. Daniel Kaluya, Lucky Daye, Diddy, and Jabari Banks wore ombré or bright-colored suits. My fave menswear look was Lucky Daye. I loved the fit of his suit. I loved the bright and vibrant colors, and I love how he accessorized with a bouquet of flowers that matched his look.”

“The BET Awards are important because it celebrates Black Excellence. BET Awards is the only show that continues to celebrate and highlight the best of the best in our culture,” she added.
