WATCH Mary J. Blige, Tyler Perry, Nipsey Hussle honored at BET Awards

For the 2019 BET Awards, stars showed up in some of the most standout and stylish looks of the year.

Lifetime Achievement Award winner Mary J. Blige marveled in big blonde curly hair while Lil Nas gave us cool cowboy vibes.

Instead of traditional red, the BET Awards featured a blue carpet this year honoring the legacy of the late rapper Nipsey Hussle.

It was a remarkable occasion celebrating people of color in entertainment.

We have compiled some of the most fascinating looks to light up the blue carpet this year.
