Celebrity Style: B.E.T. Honors 2010 Show
B.E.T. Honors 2010 was quite a show to remember. Join us as we highlight the style of such celebrities as: Diddy, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston and many more.
Hosting the event was the beautiful and ravishing Gabrielle Union. Gabrielle had a total of 9 changes throughout the night, in which she was trying to set a world record within the history of B.E.T.
A special congrats goes to both Dr. Ruth Simmons and Dr. Keith Black (pictured above), whom were honored and recognized of their achievements.
Dr. Simmons wore a classic black evening dress with pearl accessories – very fitting and age appropriate. Dr. Keith sported a black suit with a simple white dress shirt and a silver tie.
Jazmine Sullivan gave an amazing performance in honor of Queen Latifah.
Jazmine rocked an all-black everything color story, which in some areas were not too flattering. The black hat with a veil attached was most definitely a NO on our part and was very distracting. The balloon-fitted dress was not a bad look but at the same time, was not portioned to her body type. It was very short and exposed a little too much leg that should not been shown to the public eye.
The highlight of the night was a surprise performance from Kim Burrell in honor of Whitney Houston. Whitney could not believe her eyes once Kim Burrell hit the stage.
Kim looked amazing in a black asymmetrical dress with a diamond infused neckline. For those who know of Kim, she has recently lost over 100lbs and she looks great.
The Dream Girl herself, Jennifer Hudson gave a stunning performance of “I Will Always Love You” in honor of her favorite performer, Whitney Houston.
As discussed in a previous post HERE, Jennifer’s style has been impeccable in recent days. Jennifer left the crowd in awe with a long back sequin dress, plummeting v-neck line and a high collar. Wow.
Mary J. Blige came out on stage to honor Sean “Diddy” Combs with her new and old hit songs.
Mary also rocked an all-black everything color story wearing a costumed detailed jacket with leather sleeves, studded leather tights with suede knee-high boots. You gotta love Mary.
Patti Labelle took the stage honoring Queen Latifah singing her classic song “If Only You Knew”.
Patti has always set herself apart from everyone else when it came to fashion. She would never follow a trend but instead, the trend would follow her. Wearing an all back pant suit elated in ruffles, Patti stood out like the fashion icon that she has always set out to be.
Ryan Leslie also performed his newly single “I Choose You” off of his latest album Transition. Being a graduate from Harvard, Ryan made sure he showed up for this special occasion.
Ryan looked very dapper in his shiny gray suit, black motorcycle gloves, black v-neck shirt and gray shoes. A very good look.
Trey Songz and Stevie Wonder performed for the honorees of the evening. Together they blew the crowd away with Stevie’s plethora of hits and a surprise chant of Trey’s “Invented Sex” within the performance. Classic.
Trey rocked an all back suit with a black button-up, while Stevie wore all back with an African inspired sleeve. The jacket is not our favorite but hey *kanyeshrug*….it’s Stevie.
India Irie performed a musical tribute to honoree Dr. Ruth Simmons with – Dr. Simmons son playing on guitar in the background.
Indie wore a short, sleeveless black cocktail dress with brown platform heels. Again, not our personal favorite but she looked beautiful.
The original Queen Bee accepted her award graciously wearing an black sleeveless evening dress. Although, the hairstyle could have taken another approach, she still looks great. Congrats to her!
Honoree of the night, Sean “Diddy” Combs delivered the meaning of a distinguished gentlemen with just his suit alone. Although, he was being honored for his achievements, another award should have been given for his sense of style.
Take note, a pocket square is always an important piece to compliment a tailored suit.
Last but not least, Whitney Houston (pictured left) stole the night with her presence, beauty and humbleness. Her dress was lovely.
We love you Whitney!
