At the BET Awards, you can bet that the celebrities on the red carpet are going to serve up some major looks.

The annual award show has been the source of epic fashion moments for celebs like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Zendaya. Best dressed nominations are not only reserved for queens with only one name either. The red carpet has seen it all, from rhinestones to corsets to jaw-dropping cut-outs.

Since the iconic event airs tonight, we thought it was the perfect time to take a trip down memory lane and remember all the looks that have stunned over the years.

So without further ado...
