43 BET Award Looks: The Bad, the Worse and the Salvageable

The amount of surprising outfit choices on the BET Awards red carpet last night was so high that the normal choices stuck out more then the wacky dresses in the lineup. We regret to report that Kendall Jenner may have sparked an unwelcome red carpet trend with her loincloth getup because two more peavage (pelvic cleavage) dresses made an appearance last night. Many of the looks had the feel of a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen (looking at you, Ashanti), but thankfully everyone made it inside before something actually did pop out. Even Paris Hilton showed up, for reasons still unknown.
