The 2019 BET Awards saw a torrent of celebrities dazzle on the blue carpet.

Taking place at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, stars including rapper Lizzo, actor Yara Shahidi and singer John Legend displayed their fashion prowess as they arrived to celebrate African American culture in fields including music, acting and sport.

Singer and actor Mary J Blige, who was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the event, arrived in a stunning silver and white floor-length gown created by Italian fashion designer Alberta Ferretti.

Meanwhile, singer Ciara made a bold sartorial statement in a blood orange Jean Paul Gaultier ruched mini dress, complete with striking shoulder pads.
