Why wear one color when you can just wear them all? That’s what Janelle Monáe—who usually sticks to a strict black-and-white color palette—did on Sunday at the 2018 BET Awards, where she hit the red carpet in a rainbow-covered Nicolas Jebran gown with an embellished bodice, matching rainbow Judith Leiber clutch, and Tiffany & Co. Paper Flowers jewels. Though the show was at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater, she could have easily been master of ceremonies at New York’s Pride parade with this look. Also on the carpet? Nicki Minaj, Ashanti, Tyra Banks, Amber Rose, and Blac Chyna, all of whom hit the carpet in wildly sparkly dresses with cutouts for days. Beyoncé notably was not there, but her queenly presence was felt nonetheless. She received the award for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and this year became the star with the most BET Awards nominations and wins. Meanwhile, host Jamie Foxx hit the carpet with his daughter Corinne. (No, Foxx’s rumored girlfriend Katie Holmes was nowhere to be found.)

The 2016 BET Awards are heating up in L.A.’s Microsoft Theater this evening and we’re bringing you the best looks from the 16th annual show’s red carpet.  Co-emcee Tracee Ellis Ross set the tone in a second-skin reptilian floor-length number with a chest cutout, fluorescent Christian Louboutin pumps, and a bright fuchsia lip. Gabrielle Union went for a one-shoulder maroon and silver graphic Marc Jacobs gown with jewel embellishments, while Janelle Monae paid homage to Prince in her black-and-white shimmery pantsuit and Lack of Color Velveteen hat. The evening is sure to be a night of celebrations, with a number of artists set to pay tribute to the late Prince. In fact, as co-hosts and Black-ish co-stars Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson assure, the entire evening will be Prince-themed and a celebration of the musical legend.  As for the artists set to take home the big honors? Drake leads the pack with a whopping nine nominations (including Best Male Hip Hop Artist, Video of the Year, and Best Collaboration for his hit "Where Ya at" with Future) and Beyoncé and Rihanna aren’t far behind, with an impressive five nominations each, including three—Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Video of the Year, and Best Collaboration—in the same categories.  Scroll through for some of the best looks setting the red carpet ablaze at the 2016 BET Awards.
