Culture’s Biggest Night was one to remember! All of your faves hit the red carpet for the 2022 BET Awards, including Chloe Bailey, Lizzo, Summer Walker, Jussie Smollett and tons more. Get into their looks inside…
The 2022 BET Awards – hosted by Taraji P. Henson – brought out the industry’s biggest stars to celebrate Black excellence in music, acting, sports and entertainment. We noticed this year’s carpet went dark – tons of sexy dark colors, feathers and cutouts.
Of course the hottest songstress out right now would make a grand entrance.

*tear* She’s growing up! “black-ish” star Marsai Martin has plenty to celebrate. She won the YoungStars Award and she turns 18 in 50 days! Ha! She served up big LEO energy onstage.
Before hitting the stage to perform, “POSE” star Billy Porter hit the red carpet in this Rick Owens original. We can’t say it’s our fave.
Well, look who it is! “Empire” alum Jussie Smollett is slowly making his return to the limelight following his hate crime drama. He has been spotted at several events recently.
These two! From breakups to makeups, it’s likely safe to say Ray J & Princess Love aren’t breaking up…ever.
By the way, he’s starring on the BET+ new series “College Hill: Celebrity Edition,” which also stars NeNe Leakes, Lamar Odom, Big Freedia, Stacey Dash, DreamDoll, India Love and Slim Thug. It’s set to premiere this summer.
Speaking of NeNe, the former “RHOA” diva was all smiles on the carpet alongside her controversial BAE Nyonisela Sioh, who is allegedly married to another woman.
As for other couples on the carpet…

R&B crooner/presenter Ne-Yo got kissy with his wife Crystal Smith on the carpet. Y’all know they love flexing their love.
We know. You can’t tell either. This is Blac Chyna making her way down the carpet. During the show, folks were confused on whether this was raptress Latto or Chyna. Ha!
By the way, she recently settled her revenge porn lawsuit she filed against her daughter’s father, Rob Kardashian.
The hair. The gown. The skin. We loved everything about singer/presenter Janelle Monae’s Roberto Cavalli look.
