BET Awards 2021: Best style moments from Lil Nas X, Megan Thee Stallion, Taraji P. Henson and more

Stars brought their best looks for this year's BET Awards.

During the 2021 BET Awards, many celebrities, including Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, Zendaya and Ciara, showed up in style.

Rapper Lil Nas X turned heads in two elaborate designer looks that featured bold prints and shapes.

Zendaya wore an alluring look from Versace's spring-summer 2003 collection styled by Law Roach. Her look seemed to be inspired by a dress Beyoncé wore to the 2003 ceremony.

This year's BET Awards theme was the "year of the Black woman," and almost every moment of the evening echoed that concept.
