BET Awards 2011: Style Showdown! Who Wore Each Trend Best?

The 2011 BET Awards BROUGHT IT in terms of the top summer trends crossing the green carpet. We spotted four must-try looks (harem pants, treated/printed denim, leather, and super girly summer dresses) on some of our faves, but we had one hell of a hard time choosing a winner for each. Luckily, we have YOU. We’ve paired up each celeb in a killer style showdown, and a winner MUST be chosen. So, if you have a favorite look for each trend, SPILL IT IN THE COMMENTS!

WHO WORE PLEATED HAREM PANTS BEST: ALICIA KEYS OR KERI HILSON?

Singers Alicia Keys and Keri Hilson both rocked pleated black harem pants, but each lady individualized her look with to-die-for accessories. Alicia’s black and white Dolce & Gabbana ensemble oozed simple and chic, but she added a touch of fun with zebra print Christian Louboutin pumps, suspenders, and a spiraling fishtail braid. Keri accented her royal purple and black strapless Tibi jumpsuit with a bold emerald green pendant necklace, GIANT cuffs, and open-toed shoes. Who do you think won this fashion face-off?

WHO ROCKED DENIM BETTER: JUSTIN BIEBER OR JADEN SMITH?

The boys looked SO COOL rocking fun and interesting denim on the green carpet! We loved Justin Bieber’s ’80s throwback acid-wash jean vest paired with a black tee and metallic silver jeans with some seriously detailed stitching. He accessorized with a multicolored handkerchief, skull necklace, tortoiseshell sunglasses, a large watch, bracelets, and high-top polka dot sneakers. Jaden Smith went the more colorful route in a personalized red and orange leather “JS” MCM letterman jacket, graphic tee, and (the best part, obvi) tiger printed jeans. Not only do we feel like we NEED animal print jeans immediately, but we sort of love the high-tops he paired with his tiger stripes even more.

WHO WORE A GIRLY PINK DRESS THE BEST: KELLY ROWLAND OR NICKI MINAJ?

Kelly Rowland and Nicki Minaj both channeled their inner Barbie at the BET Awards in short, ruffled pink dresses. Kelly wore a sleeveless fuchsia Notte by Marchesa with cascading ruffles down the front. She kept the rest of her look simple with a pair of bangles, nude Jimmy Choo heels, and a side chignon. Nicki paired her hot pink and mauve striped three-quarter sleeve dress with ’90s print green leggings (Trapper Keeper much?), colorful bangles, black suede booties, and a chic bob.

WHO WORE HEAD-TO-TOE LEATHER BETTER: EVE OR WILLOW SMITH?

Both Eve and Willow Smith braved the summer heat in a blanket of leather (props to both gals for not having a LICK of sweat of them). Eve took a tip from Wiz Khalifa’s banger “Black and Yellow” and wore leather gold studded zip-up vest and skintight leather pants paired with Mugler heels, while Willow paid homage to her pops in a “So Fresh” T-shirt, red leather moto jacket, black leather short, and THE MOST AMAZING safety-pinned lace-up boots (which of course needed a detail shot as seen below).
