*LOS ANGELES – From Keke Palmer’s jaw-dropping silk and metallic mini and Gabrielle Union’s thigh-baring white gown to Tyrese’s deconstructed take on the classic tuxedo and a return to sleek, more natural hair styles worn by most buzzed about female stars – including Nicki Minaj – the 2014 BET Awards offered up the very best in style trends from head to toe.
To bring the hottest red carpet looks into the homes of millions of viewers, Beautiful Textures Naturally Straight Texture Manageability System is partnering with BET.com this month to present “The Morning After: The Fashion Round Up” starring designer and style expert Angela Simmons.
Also featuring stylist-to-the stars Ugo Mozie and comic actor Billy Sorrells, “The Morning After: The Fashion Round Up Powered by Beautiful Textures” offers visitors to BET.com exclusive coverage and commentary on the very best of the 2014 BET Awards red carpet.
Presented as a series of online videos dedicated to segments including Women’s Fashion, Men’s Fashion, Accessories, and Hair, “The Morning After: The Fashion Round Up” will highlight emerging trends such as all-white everything seen on such notables as Sevyn Streeter, Mack Wilds and Nelly, to the selectively placed cut-outs of Keke Palmer and Ashanti down to the most unique footwear of the night – including Angela Simmon’s own Giuseppe Zanotti heels accented by golden crocodiles.
Angela and the crew make an important point in episode five about the essential role of a good hairstyle to make or break a look. This is why they dedicate an entire segment to all the latest hair trends including the natural look favored by artists such as August Alsina. No matter which way viewers wear their hair, they can look forward to expert styling tips from Angela throughout the series on how she manages her own hair, taking it from curly and straight and back again with ease due to the TMS’s patented formula that features no harsh chemicals for long-lasting versatility.
“I’m thrilled Beautiful Textures brought me on board to host BET.com’s ‘The Morning After: Fashion Round Up,’’’ says Angela Simmons. “Everyone knows it’s not just the nominees who get all the attention at high-profile events such as the BET Awards. It’s the people who make an impression on the red carpet that everyone will be talking about the next day,” she adds. “Personally, I pay the closest attention to everyone’s hair – strong, healthy hair is one of the best assets a girl can flaunt on the red carpet or anywhere.”
Angela Simmons has earned critical acclaim for her style on the red carpet and magazine covers alike, making her the ideal commentator for this year’s BET Awards. Not only will she tell all about who wore what best, but she will give viewers valuable tips and tricks on how to pull off top celeb looks at home.
“Angela Simmons’ confident style and fashion savvy make her the perfect fit for Beautiful Textures and our presentation of ‘The Morning After: Fashion Round Up’ on BET.com,” says Charlene Dance, global marketing director for Strength Of Nature Global LLC. “Having graced numerous red carpets herself, Angela is able to identify what’s been done, what’s trending and what’s completely unique.
