2021 BET Awards: Red carpet arrivals

Megan Thee Stallion, Saweetie and Zendaya brought the wow factor to the 2021 BET Awards red carpet in Los Angeles on Sunday, where they each put on jaw-dropping displays.

The Hot Girl Summer hit-maker, 26, showed some serious skin as she arrived to Microsoft Theater in a very revealing white dress barely held together with metallic cords. 

With her cleavage and legs on full display, Megan had all eyes on her as she posed up a storm in her super glam and sexy ensemble, while the Goodies singer, 35, wowed in a dazzling catsuit and Saweetie, 27, wore a gold and purple gown with a vast train and barely-there sheer body. 

The WAP hit-maker, who has been nominated for seven awards at the show, turned up the heat as she flashed her legs in near entirety beneath a flowing white dress with bullet bra-like top.

The slinky look was made all the more glam with glittering straps affixed to the chest and hips.

She wore her raven tresses down straight, and brought out her natural beauty with a dramatic pop of makeup.

Meanwhile, Ciara got heads turning in a bedazzled black jumpsuit which hugged every inch of her body.

Leggy lady! The rapper left little of her legs to the imagination
