This Sunday's highly anticipated BET Awards boasted lots of fantastic performances from the likes of Beyoncé, Erykah Badu and Desiigner. But the stars for this year's show were bringing heat not just to the stage, but to the red carpet, too.

Everyone from Gabrielle Union to host Tracee Ellis Ross came out with looks that were sleek, chic and just a little daring. Perhaps the best look of the night came from Janelle Monae in a striped black-and-white suit which she told red carpet host Llyod Boston that she chose the ensemble because it's a look she thinks Prince would have liked -- or even worn.

Below are all the best looks from the BET Awards red carpet -- let us know your faves!
