The BET Awards: A Night of Insane Jackets

1 Jul

The BET Awards were last night, and while the show aims to celebrate the best in black entertainment, the real stars of the show were the crazy jackets sported by performers.

This style trend transcends generations, with everyone from Miguel to Stevie Wonder stepping out in their most outrageous garb. R. Kelly even wore a hat to match his crazy jacket.

In the awards show spirit, I’m here to dish out some well-deserved recognition to the artists who put forth that little something extra in the form of a loud jacket.

1. 2 Chainz – Most On-Trend

Fringe is really in right now. Have you seen Tumblr lately?

2. Miguel – Most Unconventional Embellishment

Is that human hair on Miguel’s shoulders?

3. R. Kelly – Scariest Jacket

I like to imagine that he spent hours sitting in front of Lifetime hand studding the jacket himself.

4. Stevie Wonder – Best Use of Non Sequitur Appliques

Stevie’s always been really into tribal prints, but lately he’s been going bold by wearing bizarre aboriginal-type masks on his jackets.

5. Justin Timberlake – Best Secretly Crazy Jacket

At first glance, his sport coat looks pretty standard. Upon closer inspection, however, one may see that the “Suit & Tie” singer’s shiny black textured jacket is hardly standard.

6. Charlie Wilson – Most Colorful

Because, duh.
