2008 BET Awards Celebrity Fashion


The 2008 BET Awards took place at Los Angeles this Tuesday. While some celebrities sizzled in hot, uber bright colors like pink and yellow that contrasted their darker skin tones, others proved that purple is still HOT this season! My personal faves are Cassie and Rihanna. What do you guys think?

  1. I agree with the person above me! I think Cassie’s dress is so ugly especially the color! Anywayz I like Alicia Keys and Rihanna.

  2. I can’t believe Cassie’s dress is Vivienne Westwood Anglomania. That line is usually nice but her dress looks like a cheap t-shirt that you could find at K-Mart. Ew!

  3. :O I have casha’s dress (or something that looks identical to it)!
    got it in red for semi :),
    I got so many compliments!
    It’s definitely a great dress (L)
