The best part of the BET Awards, held this last Sunday night wasn’t the mishap of the young woman who called out the wrong name in the People’s Choice category, or Rick Ross’ fat tummy and desperate need of a sports bra, but the bold and brave fashions that I think are synonymous with so many African-American women.

Looking at many of the actresses and singers what stands out to me is how unafraid they are in stepping out onto a fashion limb--wearing bright colors, daring cuts, and hairstyles that sometimes rival any bush created by Edward Scissorhands himself.

Here are a couple of my favorites and where to get them yourself...if you're ever invited to the BET awards.

This golden number worn by Kerry Washington can be found by looking to Laundry by Shellie Segal $146.
