2020 BET Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

The red carpet at the BET Awards isn’t exactly known for it’s high fashion moments. When I Google Image search the event only two of the “top tier” fashion labels show up at the top with a Jean Paul Gaultier Couture dress on Ciara and a Prabal Gurung ensemble on Yara Shahidi, both from the 2019 event. I always hold out hope that someone will WOW me on this red carpet. I’m not saying it hasn’t been done before, but big fashion moments are far and few between. As I’ve said over the past couple of days my wishes for the 2020 BET Awards are picked not with the idea of the Zoom ceremony, but for what the red carpet might have looked like had an in-person actually happened. So definitely escape to what could have happened had COVID-19 not sent the event digital. Beyonce nabbed four BET Award nominations along with her daughter Blue Ivy’s first. Bey doesn’t do a whole lot of red carpets anymore. She opts instead to rock some glam in an at home photo shoot and then sneak into events through the side door. So I mean I would love to see her still do some major glam for the virtual BET Awards since it fits right in with her MO as of lately. I always love seeing Beyonce wearing Elie Saab designs on the red carpet and I definitely think she would have brought this champagne gold intricate sequin embroidered mermaid gown from the Elie Saab Spring 2020 Couture collection which features a plunging neckline with a sheer yoke (that would have to be made to match Bey’s skin tone, long puffy poet sleeves, a leather belted waist, and a sweeping train to life with effortless ease. It isn’t an easy look to pull off, but I definitely believe that Beyonce would be able to push through this dress and own it. A sleek updo, defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, a pair of gold Gianvito Rossi knot detailed ankle strap metallic leather sandals, and dazzling Lorraine Schwartz hand cut diamond cascading earrings would definitely have added the perfect finishing touches to this look. It might have been my subconscious remembering the orange Jean Paul Gaultier Couture dress that Ciara wore last year for the BET Awards, but I picked a very similar dress for her to wear had she walked the red carpet this year. The singer is nominated for one BET Award this year and is very pregnant, so I don’t even know if we would have seen Ciara at this years awards had there been no COVID-19 crisis. But had she shown up draping this lilac Zuhair Murad Fall 2020 RTW one sleeve asymmetrically draped mini dress over her baby bump I definitely think that it would have been a glamorous moment. I would have ditched the belt as I feel over the bump it would have been too constricting. I definitely think that Ciara would have given us sexy pregnancy glamour wearing this dress with the lookbooks matching lilac ankle strap sandals, a romantic curly updo, smokey eyes, soft nude lips, and glamorous Niwika ‘Amane’ cluster earrings set in 18k white gold with blue chalcedony, amethyst, aquamarine, tanzanite, and green tourmaline.I know that Issa Rae has the potential to really wow me. She has, but it has been a while. Had she been on the red carpet at the 2020 BET Awards I would have loved to see her rock this red carpet on top form. I love this goldenrod asymmetrically sequin draped Aliette Fall 2020 RTW pencil dress from her stylist Jason Rembert’s own fashion line. I believe that that Issa would definitely have brought this dress to life in a major moment. She knows how to handle bold color and dazzling glamour on the red carpet and I definitely think that this dress would have delivered just that. The styling with it a sleek braided bun updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of yellow gold Sergio Rossi mary-jane inspired peep toe slingback crystal buckle detailed sandals, and Norman Silverman emerald cut white diamond hoop earrings would definitely have put the look together perfectly. Marsai Martin is a little boss lady. She is not only just an actress but at 15 she is already producing movies. I feel like it’s sad that she only received a nomination for Best Young Star because she hustles her way through Hollywood with the best of the “grown-up” stars. I went for something DRAMATIC for her to wear on the red carpet had one taken place with this fuchsia Pamella Rolland Fall 2020 RTW feather-trimmed sequined tulle one shoulder gown which features a fitted one-shoulder bodice, an asymmetric A-line high low skirt, and a dramatic train. Everything from the color to the silhouette to the embellishments makes this a perfect look for Marsai. The dress itself is such a statement that I would just style it with simple waves pinned behind the ears, smokey eyes, light antique rose pink lips, and a pair of silver Alexandre Birman ‘Lacy’ crystal embellished 4 strap snakeskin sandals would definitely have made this another major fashion moment for Marsai to bring to life on the red carpet.
