The BET Black Girls Rock! Awards, which celebrates inspirational women, aired on DStv last night.

Model Naomi Campbell won the Black Girl Magic Award, while dancer and choreographer Judith Jamison was honoured with the Living Legend Award.

Actress Lena Waithe was given the Shot Caller Award and Tarana Burke, founder of the Me Too movement, was the worthy recipient of the Community Change Agent Award.

Janet Jackson and Mary J. Blige took home the Rock Star and Star Power Awards respectively. That said, neither of these phenomenal singers will be getting any fashion awards from us for the outfits they wore to the event.

Here’s which other celebs failed to impress with their dress sense and which ones rocked the red carpet:

BEST DRESSED

CIARA

The singer’s latest single could have inspired this look; we’d say she ‘Levels Up’ in Balmain.

The singer scored points for her blazer-inspired take on a little black dress.

NATURI NAUGHTON

Powerful in bright pink: the actress looked beautiful and confident in this Jay Godfrey jumpsuit.

WORST DRESSED

QUEEN LATIFAH

The singer is known for taking on comedic roles in movies, but if this outfit was a joke we just didn’t get it – what’s with that cape?

MARY J BLIGE

The skirt of the rapper’s Roberto Cavallli gown appears to have been fed through a paper shredder. And, together with the cut outs on the top, makes her look as if she’s been attacked by some clawed-creature from a horror movie.

JAZMINE SULLIVAN

The ‘Insecure’ singer clearly has confidence in her choice of this Alexander McQueen gown, but we don’t.

The way the sheer portion of her skirt cuts her legs is less than flattering. And, together with those ruffled sleves, makes her dress look unbalanced and top-heavy.
