At BET Style, we can’t wait to see what the celebrities will be wearing on the red carpet. In the case of BET Hip Hop Awards, the green carpet!
Will there be a sea full of bold fashion? Are the celebrities going to show it all in barely visible mini-dresses? Will the stars completely abandon trends? These are just a few of the questions that preoccupy us before the big night.
While most people take inspiration from New York Fashion Week, we decided to ask the stylist Tyrina Lee (assistant of Grace Butler during the filming of the “Whole Lotta Money” video) on the fashion trends we can expect to see at this year’s award.

According to Lee, expect the unexpected. “I think we’ll see a lot of shapes, textures and silhouettes. Think about tight and sexy dresses, “she tells us exclusively.” This year there will more than likely be fewer accessories. However, the hair and headdresses are in it.
We also spoke to the founder of Okra, Nadirah Simmons, and she revealed to us that she had noticed a sharp increase in cerulean blue, light orange, lime green, and bold metals.
“Expect lots of prints, sheer wedge heels, jumpsuits, monochrome looks (hair included) and 2000s fashion nods with mini skirts, colorful sunglasses, chunky shoes, metallic fabrics and dazzling clothes, ”says Simmons.
She adds, “Megan you stallion is someone who has done each of these trends so well! “
Diving deeper into accessories, both agree that good pieces can make or break a look. “Whether it’s a grill, watch, bracelet or necklace, jewelry is needed to complete the look. Not because it is representative of an artist’s opulence, but instead, it represents their unique personal style and past, ”Simmons insists, referring to how stylist Misa Hylton accessorized Rapsody with curlers covered in Swarovski crystals for her appearance on the 2019 red carpet. “Clothing is essential to create the look, but jewelry is the icing on the cake. “
Concluding the conversation, Lee shares the following tip for those prepping for the awards: “Have a vision and make it tell your story!”
Watch the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday, October 5 at 9 p.m. ET / PT.
