The annual BET Awards 2019 ceremony took place in Los Angeles yesterday. These awards are given to African Americans for achievements in various fields of activity: music, fashion, cinema, sports and others. Her guests were Rihanna , Ciara, Yara Shahidi, Cardi Bee, John Legend and other celebrities.

The Barbados singer, however, unlike her colleagues, did not pose on the red carpet, but she stepped on the stage – Rihanna presented the award to Mary J. Blige for achievements in music. In public, the 31-year-old star, who continues to actively promote her debut collection Fenty, which she created in collaboration with the luxury giant LVMH, appeared in a black leather suit – of course, her own authorship.

The 33-year-old Ciara’s outfit was no less memorable Рthe singer chose an orange mini-dress with a train from Jean Paul Gaultier.
