Just when you think you've hit an awards season dry spell, bam! It's the 2008 BET Hip-Hop Awards at The Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center! And the stars were out: 50 Cent, Kerry Washington, Ciara and a cast of thousands brought us high highs and low lows — just what the doctor ordered on a Monday. The Good, The Bad... after the jump.
50 Cent goes totally dapper!
Madras: not seen as much on the red carpet as one would hope. Ashley Calloway agrees!
Kerry Washington's dress must weigh fifty pounds. No wonder she looks miserable.
The Gay European on Holiday look is working for Talib Kweli!
Also good: Musiq Soulchild's rockabilly.
Ciara channels Emma Peel.
I could totally get behind Sharon Carpenter's disco-fab number if she weren't apparently wearing it backwards and courting a wardrobe malfunction.
Toccara Jones' corset may be the least flattering thing I've ever clapped eyes on.
At least Lynne Harris Taylor's frumpy leather shift looks comfy!
Tiffany Evans's look is kinda like Kenley's idea of "hip hop." Plus Docs.
If, like Angel Lola Luv, you insist upon sporting a Roman Blind, try to avoid the lure of legwarmers.
