Last night’s BET Awards, which Leslie Jones hosted, featured some of our favorite artists in the industry. Like most awards shows, it was filled with the good and the “huh??” alike, but that’s what makes it fun. Performers included Bruno Mars and Migos, with awards presented to some of the most influential names in the business, like Solange Knowles, who won the “Centric Award.”

And while we loved seeing rappers like Kendrick Lamar do their thing, what we were really there for were all the jaw-dropping looks on the red carpet. An overall theme of the night had to be “reaching for the stars” because everyone from Jada Pinkett Smith to Kára McCullough to Justine Skye wore ensembles that would probably make the cosmos jealous. Plunging necklines, thigh-high slits, and plenty of glamour were also staples at the awards show.

Here are our 14 favorite looks from last night.
