What an evening it was at the 2012 BET Awards.
Rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z were the big winners of the night taking home two awards, Best Group and Video of the Year for “Otis.” Beyonce, clad in yellow from head to toe, also took home awards for Best Female R&B Artist and Video Direction. Sadly Kanye’s lady, one Kim Kardashian, didn’t take home any awards. Insert your own joke here.
Kim did look lovely in a backless, white number. I won’t lie, Kim Kardashian posing with Nicki Minaj might be the funniest thing I’ve seen all day. Nicki looked quite crazy, as per usual. She also took home an award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. So who was the best dressed lady of the evening?
In my humble opinion the award goes to Kerry Washington. Here’s the thing, Kerry is gorgeous, so really, whatever you put on her is going to be amazing. Mariah Carey looked quite lovely as well. She really knows how to work the girls.
