Last night, the BET Awards were filled with unforgettable moments—and that included a red-carpet fashion show from Beyoncé's dancers, a fringed bodysuit worn by the Queen herself, and J-Hud's smoldering cape. In the beauty department, the stars represented summer's biggest trends with red lipstick and fresh, dewy skin. And, as is rote these days, chokers won the accessories game. Here's a look back at the evening's best fashion and beauty looks, with bonus "trend alerts" where needed. (Hey, it never hurts to stay informed.)

2. Janelle Monáe
The edgy singer wore Sass & Bide's Sullied Night jacket and Super Base pant (both will be available in August.) She accessorized with the season's hottest jewelry statement—yep, we're talking about her gold choker—from Jennifer Fisher. Trend alert: chokers and the black-and-white color combo.
