Recap: BET Awards 2011 Green Carpet Featuring Kerry Washington, Alicia Keys, Drake, And More



For last night’s BET Awards, celebs came out dressed to impress – and some, not so much, for the “show before the show”, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

The BET Green carpet arrivals were the best way to get up close and personal with your favorite stars before the show; aside from talking about the winners of the night, you’re also going to want to see what they wore!  Hits included, Kerry Washington (who chose a yellow Michael Kors dress with all black Louboutin’s – fave of the night),  Alicia Keys (black and white Dolce & Gabbana menswear suit, with zebra print Louie’s), Nia Long (what a stunning baby glow she had in that white gown!), Idris Elba, and Diggy Simmons (they grow up FAST, don’t they?!).  The green carpet showcased some fab outfits, but of course – there can’t be a ying with no yang…the absolute misses included, Drake – who apparently just cannot get it together; Amber Rose (guilty by association?), and Lloyd (lawwd…).

Hopefully things get better next year for the failures of the night – look for more pictures after the break.
