There's No Doubt These BET Award Nominees Will Land on Everyone's Best Dressed List

Jun 25 2020 - 2:39pm

The 2020 BET Awards [1] are taking place this Sunday. While there won't be a regular red carpet or a stadium full of A-listers like in previous years, the show will take place virtually on YouTube. Sure, this year's show will look a little different, but we're betting it will be packed full of fashionable looks, and we can't wait to see what celebrities like Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj are going to wear while attending the award show from their houses.

The BET Awards will include performances by stylish stars like Megan Thee Stallion and breakout singers Chloe x Halle [2], who have come a long way after being signed by Beyoncé. Bey's daughter Blue Ivy also nabbed her first ever nomination [3] at the tender age of 8! Just like her mom, Blue is also a major fashionista as we've seen from past events.

Billy Porter, who is nominated in the best actor category, is also scheduled to make an appearance, and if his outfit is anything like his previous red carpet looks, we're in for a treat. (I'm personally still not over his 2019 Met Gala look [4].) Keep reading to see some of the most stylish BET nominees.
