BET Honors 2013 Red Carpet: Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union, Alicia Keys And More (PHOTOS)

The 2013 BET Honors took place in Washington, D.C. last night. The event which celebrates distinguished African Americans performing at exceptional levels in the areas of music, literature, entertainment, media, service and education also brought out our favorite style stars.

Gabrielle Union played host for the evening and wore a collection of amazing dresses throughout the night, but it was her sideboob-baring Emilio Pucci red gown that really grabbed our attention.

And Gabby wasn't the only star showing off plenty of skin. Academy Award-winning actress and BET honoree, Halle Berry, stepped out in a sexy strapless Monique Lhuillier dress that put her fabulous figure on display. The design's high slit was perfect for Angelegging and showing of her strappy Brian Atwood sandals.

Alica Keys was also on hand to fete the accomplishments of the night's award recipients with a rousing performance. The 31-year-old singer donned a curve-hugging black dress on the red carpet and changed into a midriff-baring ensemble when she hit the stage.

You'll have to tune into BET on February 11, 2013 at 9:00 pm EST to watch the star-studded event, but in the meantime check out these lovely ladies and some of our other fashion favorites--including Kelly Rowland, Erykah Badu and Chaka Khan--in the slideshow below.
