The shirt dress-inspired frock featured a collar and cuff sleeves, as well as draped fabric and a thigh-high slit. Latto accessorized with layered necklaces, diamond cocktail rings, a chainlink anklet and black high-heeled sandals.
Latto wore her caramel tresses in flowing waves, while her makeup consisted of taupe eyeshadow and a glossy nude lip.
For her performance, Latto changed into a white two-piece set. Her cargo pants and layered bra top were emblazoned with metallic lyrics from her latest hit, “Put It On Da Floor.” The rapper paired her ensemble with white lace-up boots and bejeweled bangles while performing her 2023 single.
Latto took home the award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, beating out Ice Spice, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Latto’s sister (and her plus one for the evening), Brooklyn Nikole, joined her on stage during her acceptance speech. Latto notably removed her shoes.
Since 2001, the BET Awards have celebrated the best in Black talent across television, film, music and sports. This year’s ceremony, held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, commemorates the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop. Coi Leray, Coco Jones, GloRilla and Ice Spice are among the evening’s performers, while Busta Rhymes receives the Lifetime Achievement Award. The 23rd BET Awards also features a tribute to Tina Turner. The late Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll will be honored by R&B legend Patti LaBelle.
