If you’re familiar with the BET Awards, you know it is practically the only competitor for the MTV VMAs when it comes to red carpet style. Correction: red carpet extravaganza.
And lord knows last night’s honored guests brought the “extra.” ‘The bigger the better’ appeared to be the mandate for the award show, with puffy sleeves, sequins, and figure-hugging gowns dominating the carpet. But there were only four main contenders for the campiest belle of the ball. Since we don’t want to keep you in suspense much longer, here are most-memorable looks served by the music industry favorites.
All pink, everything. The crochet corset and train, cat ears, aura of suspended feathers, and “meow” glasses—we’re shaking is an understatement.
Megan Thee Stallion

Lil Nas X

Check out some of the other incredible (and extra) looks from the carpet, below.
