Unfortunately, the BET Awards provided more fodder for our weekly WTF than for our much needed fashion inspiration. Even though some serious trend-setters hail from the hip-hop world (M.I.A., Kanye), most of the BET styles looked like prom-warmed-over or worse. Here are some of the
Comment: The usually beautiful singer misses the mark. The length makes her legs look stumpy, and the hemline practically gives her… GASP… cankles!

Comment: Olivia Thirlby is one of my favorite up-and-coming stars, so consider this an intervention. You must drop this grunge look, Livs!

She Was Thinking: Aww shucks Huck!
Looking forward to next week!
