With the sun beating down hot tonight on the BET Awards red carpet, it might be a pill to walk down in confining dresses and intricate hairstyles. But Karrueche Tran at the 2016 BET Awards clearly thought ahead and created a game plan. She walked the red carpet looking sleek and minimalist in a black leather dress and had an eye on the weather forecast when she met up with her beauty team.
When Lloyd Boston snagged her off the carpet and asked about her "cone hair," Tran admitted that she chose the look for a reason. She wanted to make sure she had her locks off her face and neck because it was so hot out in L.A. The result was a bold topknot with slicked-down baby hairs, which let her outfit and accessories shine.
Her dress had a prim-slash-BDSM vibe to it, with a vintage-inspired square neckline and midi pencil skirt silhouette. But the leather texture and bold buttons running down the front added some edge and a strong dose of heat. She accented with fearless accessories, going for a gold choker, a stack of jangle bracelets, and warrior-like high heels adorned with golden spikes. She looked both fierce and ladylike, making her look a total sartorial win.
According to Hollywood Life, it's no surprise that Tran nailed her ensemble so perfectly. The publication reported, "It’s no surprise Karrueche nailed her BET beauty look since she served as the show’s red carpet host a few years ago for the 2014 awards." She's a seasoned red carpet walker, and knows what works!
