In contrast to women, most celebrity men are less likely to get pampered, primped and dressed up for an event, let alone a hip-hop show.
However, for a major red carpet event like the BET Hip Hop Awards, there’s the rare occasion that guys will go the extra mile to get swagged out and show-off their fashion sense.
At this year’s 12th annual event, the guys ‘let their hair down’ and came through dripping in designer goods.
The show’s dress code is a lot less rigid than other award shows (think: the Grammys or The Emmys), but that didn’t stop a few of our favorite artists from getting dressed up in fresh-off-the-runway looks.
From Gucci Mane to Ace Hood, take a look below to see which fellas set the red carpet on fire!
Yonathan Elias was sophisticated and sharp for the show.
Eric Bellinger's "New hair, who dis?" moment was cool for the carpet.
Shiggy's Hawaiian-print shirt was on-trend.
