Kickin' It: Behind the Scenes at BET's Rip the Runway

 A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending BET's Rip The Runway taping which is actually airing tonight at 9pm. As BET is my former employer (worked there in 2009) I couldn't miss out on covering this one. Some people attend these specials for the celeb spotting or the live performances. With me, it's all about the fashion...

Hosted by the adorable Pooch Hall and everyone's fave black Barbie Nicki Minaj - strange pairing, I know - BET's Rip the Runway was filled with the best in urban fashions and music. I have to say the most entertaining parts of the show were Nicki Minaj's costume changes! She went from typical "tight bodysuit & pink wig" Nicki to....

..."hot mama in a hot pink dress" to "classy and refined" Nicki Minaj. I was pleasantly surprised at her range of attire. Shoutout to her stylist Fatima B. for keeping us interested throughout the show!

Anyway, it was a good time. One of my fave designers Tracy Reese showed her Spring 2010 collection along with an array of other talented designers. Anyway, I had an awesome time. 

Be sure to tune in tonight at 10/9c for the full show. For more information, check BET.com

  2. My little secret *whispers*...I actually like Nicki Minaj!
    There's something about her that actually ropes in the audience's interest...its nuts!
    Not too keen on either of her outfits however...was the show good?


  3. I've been sitting here going through your old posts and I keep thinking...she is me...she is living my life!

    you are so inspiring!
