Last night on the red carpet at the BET Awards, there were pretty dresses, interesting shoes, creative hairdos and Meagan Good's nipples. Let us not delay.

The gentlemen in attendance were looking fine. Nelly's got that casual millionaire thing happening; J. Cole rocks a slightly old-school vibe; Pharrell is fashion-forward in a shrunken jacket and interestingly tailored trousers.

Your boyfriend T.I.: Suited. Sexy.

Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake performed, but did not hit the red carpet. Both did twists on the tux, but Thicke's was better (just like "Blurred Lines" is a better jam than "Suit and Tie," sorry JT.)

Guys. The Doggfather is going gray! Love his sparkly lapels and open shirt with chains, though. James Brown-esque.

Moving on to the ladies! We're starting with the dark colors. Chic and sleek in black and gold: Angela Bassett and Laila Ali.

Cute hair and a bare midriff are a great summery look on Ciara.

Did you know that Kat Graham of The Vampire Diaries has a singing career? She's beautiful, but this hair color really washes out her face. And this '90s Versace-throwback ensemble is not very flattering.

Interesting color-blocked gown, cool clutch: Melanie Fiona.

Lots of shine for Lisa Leslie and Naya Rivera.

Moving on to some bright hues: Sunny yellow looks good on new mom Amber Rose (with Wiz Khalifa).

It's tough to focus on Megan Good's electric blue dress with all that inner boob, cleavage, underboob and nipple. Never forget we're in the golden age of boob exposure!

Gabrielle Union is kind of understated in a simple crimson strapless dress.

Kicking things up a notch in a fiery red gown: Adrienne Bailon.

Figure-hugging dresses for LaLa Anthony and India Arie.

Going even shorter and tighter, with spectacular shoes and jewelry: Eve.

Looks like the beige/tan/peachy/fleshtone dresses are still with us. Tamar Braxton's shoes make up for the slightly dull palette.

These were the 0nly shots of Quvenzhané Wallis — no full length! — but as long as we can see the pink nails and the puppy purse, we're good. Please note: That puppy is wearing a tiara.

Usually mullet dresses are fairly icky, but Gabby Douglas looks good.

Sanaa Lathan contrasts a pale, neutral gown with vivid red lips. Gorgeous.

Brandy's delicate embroidered dress and bondage-y ballerina shoes are kind of weird but I think I like them.

Ashanti has a similar look — short, embroidered dress and neutral heels — but I like it less. By the by, a lot of people wore white to this event.

It's been a while since we saw ANTM alum Toccara Jones. Bright white looks great against her skin.

Are you over sheer/see through panels on dresses yet? Paula Patton is not.

Elegant in long white column gowns: Beverly Johnson, Michelle Williams.

The length is a little off, but this slinky jumpsuit on LeToya Luckett is white hot Studio 54 realness. Love.

I don't know what the fuck Mya is wearing — it seems like a jumpsuit with a jacket over it, and there are some weird cutouts involved — but it's good to see her.

My pick for Best Dressed: Janelle Monae. Crisp white suit, sparkling silver heels and a healthy dose of bling = fabulousness.

And the hair! So cool.
