Last night’s BET Awards was a monumental event filled with emotional Prince tributes from Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monae, and Sheila E., electrifying performances by Usher and Beyoncé, and a powerful and inspiring speech from Jesse Williams. The stars also brought their best to the red carpet — from Gabrielle Union’s burgundy Marc Jacobs gown to Tinashe’s lingerie-inspired lace number to EJ Johnson’s sheer jumpsuit. The slayosity levels were CLEARLY off the charts. Alicia Keys also kept her no-makeup promise and arrived at the event with a fresh face. Can you imagine how much time she saved getting ready?

Check out 17 of the most stunning looks from the event, including Bey, whose fringe-trimmed bodysuit made her look like a powerful phoenix onstage.
