The Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards are an annual awards ceremony, which aims to celebrate the top African American entertainers within the past year.
The 21st edition of the show took place on the 27th June 2021 at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, California.
Many musical acts performed live on the night, including the likes of DaBaby, Lil Nas X and Busta Rhymes.
Additionally, several awards were up for grabs such as ‘Best Female Hip Hop Artist’ and the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’, which were won by Megan Thee Stallion and Queen Latifah.
There were also some fantastic examples of celebrity fashion and eyewear at the BET Awards this year.
Check out our top picks below!
Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson (aka H.E.R.) is an American musician, best known for songs such as ‘Hard Place’ and ‘Change’.
She was spotted on the BET Awards red carpet this year sporting a simple yet effective ensemble.
Wilson opted to wear a plain black velvet blazer, which has been paired with some transparent chiffon trousers – we adore the check print all over!
Matching black platform heels help to make the look complete, not to mention some simple layered jewellery and a pair of brown rounded sunglasses.
