BET Awards 2019: Ciara, Mary J. Blige, Lil Nas and more shine on the blue carpet

From cowboy hats to neon pops, stars wore looks that made us stop and stare.

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.
