A break from SS17.

Luke James,   Elijah Kelley,   Algee Smith,   Keith Powers

Sunday saw the music industry’s finest come together for the BET awards. Beyonce and Bryson Tiller were the big winners on stage but who took it home on the red carpet?

#PAUSEorSKIP?

Young Thug

Young Thug

PAUSE: Young Thug kept it characteristically cool in ice blue tailoring, white socks and glitterball brogues.

Colin Tilley

Colin Tilley

PAUSE: The award winning video director went for an all distressed look in a burnout tee, shredded jeans and A Bathing Ape hooded jacket.

Fonzworth Bentley

SKIP: While well coordinated with his wife, Faune Alecia Chambers, this gaudy look missed the mark for the usually dapper dresser.

Schoolboy Q

Schoolboy Q

SKIP: The artist played it very safe in denim and Converse.

French Montana

French Montana

PAUSE: Kicking off the series of white-centric looks, French looked sharp in an embroidered kurta and Android Homme boots.

Brandon T. Jackson

PAUSE: All right in all white.

Jacob Latimore

Jacob Latimore

SKIP: Latimore’s white look wasn’t quite as fresh as the other contenders with his black chelsea boots at odds with his fitted white denim and dress shirt.

Falz

PAUSE: The Nigerian rapper won big on the night and also killed it in his dressed down monochrome suiting.

2 Chainz

PAUSE: Although maybe an offbeat choice for LA in June, 2 Chainz rocked his shearling lined, embroidered Gucci trucker.

Anthony Hamilton

Anthony Hamilton

SKIP: Hamilton nearly nailed this look but the clash of utility details against the quilted gold didn’t really work. Too much going on.

Desiigner

Desiigner

PAUSE: Orange, black and gold in clean lines was a good shout for the Panda star who kept it simple and stylish.

Keith Powers

Keith Powers

SKIP: This bold red (carpet) look could’ve been transformed by a different footwear call. Great tonal blocking though.

Ro James

SKIP: So the jacket and lid come with the car?

Jidenna

PAUSE: The singer brought colour to the carpet in shades of green and fresh Nigerian print.
