Slideshow: Nicki Minaj, Chaka Khan, Swizz Beatz, and Other Red Carpet Looks From the 2012 BET Awards

View Slideshow Nicki Minaj poses in the press room at the 2012 BET Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

One red carpet trend made itself abundantly clear at yesterday's BET Awards: Cutouts and sheer panels, conveniently situated everywhere from chest to tummy to legs so as to allow for maximum ventilation. See cleavage-area cutouts on Taraji P. Henson and Melyssa Ford, waist cut-outs on Dawn Richard, and shoulder cutouts on Nicki Minaj and Latanya Richardson (we counted over a dozen cutouts total). Meanwhile, the male attendees wore everything from ties to naked ladies. See the full red carpet rundown in our slideshow.
