Sunday night’s BET Awards were filled with major moments, both on stage and off. From a song debut from Meek Mill to an epic performance by Nicki Minaj to Jamie Foxx inviting Michael B. Jordan onstage to deliver his famously poignant Black Panther line, it was a night to remember. (Check out a complete list of winners here.) But many of the standout moments also took place on the carpet, as stars arrived in true head-turning style.

In one of the biggest style statements of the night, Blac Chyna arrived wearing a silver, two-piece chain mail-like ensemble.The top included fringe that only covered the top of her breasts, and the matching sheer skirt featured double slits. She paired the look with a silver, finger-waved pixie cut and bright silver and blue eye shadow.

Janelle Monáe, who recently revealed she’s “very proud to be a queer, young black woman in America,” joined people across the country who were showing their Pride, wearing a massive, Nicolas Jebran rainbow-colored skirt. She paired the vibrant look, which began with purple stripes at her waist and ended with bright red at her feet, with a green beaded bustier-style top a black and red conductor’s hat and Tiffany jewelry.

Get Out star Lakeith Stanfield showed up in a black, flower-embellished wig that was styled with bangs and an updo. The look, which he eventually removed, was paired with a Saint Laurent look of a black-and-white polka dot bomber, a white button-down shirt, a black bow tie, black jeans and pointed shoes.

The actor’s groomer, Tasha Brown, shared a look at his wig, with him nonchalantly modeling the look. “Saint Laurent. Heavy bang. Barrettes. Unbothered,” she wrote on one photo.

Tyra Banks debuted a new look on Sunday night as well: a short, chin-length bob, which was a big change from the long look she had been sporting prior. Banks debuted her new highlighted ‘do with a mock-neck Stello jumpsuit with tulle sleeves and beaded lace detailing, along with jewelry by Anne Sisteron and Sydney Evan.
