“Culture’s biggest night” is back, as the 2023 BET Awards took place on Sunday,  June 25, 2023, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.  The show paid homage to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop and the artists who have brought the genre and culture to prominence.

An annual celebration of Black talent in Hollywood and beyond, the BET Awards is a reflection of “an abundance of creative expression and Black excellence across music, television, film, and sports.” That creativity and eccentricity were certainly felt on the red carpet, with each celebrity showcasing their personal, unique style.

For this year’s staging, Jamaican-born Rapper Buster Rhymes was selected to receive the coveted “Lifetime Achievement Award”, where we saw tribute performances from Coy Leray, Coco Jones, GloRilla, SPICE, Delta Daps, Skillibeng, Cutty Ranks, and More! While the show is all about music, we here at Haute People are all about Fashion and we had to do our due diligence and bring you the best looks!
