The 2015 BET Awards seemed to have an unwritten dress code -- nearly all the ladies who graced the red carpet wore black, white or a combination of both. But that doesn't mean their looks were boring! With feathers, capes, and plenty of sequins, these 10 actresses, models and singers turned heads. Check out the buzziest looks of the night.

1. Nicki Minaj chose this understated zip-front black Givenchy gown -- a far cry from her neon looks from a few years ago.

2. Singer Ciara stunned in this sheer Wes Gordon sheath. Her handsome boyfriend Russell Wilson was a nice touch, too!

4. Always elegant, Gabrielle Union shimmered in this gorgeous Halston gown, complete with a peek-a-boo back.

5. Janelle Monae has never met a cape she didn't like, but we love her signature look -- it's polished yet suits her eclectic style!

6. Amber Rose and her friend Blac Chyna attended the event in these surprisingly demure matching white pantsuits.

8. Describing herself as a "tall, skinny glass of sparkling water" Zendaya rocks this sequined minidress with 6-inch platform heels.

Yes...I'm a tall 6'4"(with these heels) skinny glass of sparkling water and I love it. ???#bodylove

9. Always one to watch on the red carpet, Laverne Cox looked both sexy and sophisticated in this Dmitry Sholokhov tuxedo jumpsuit.

10. Kelly Rowland took a fashion risk in this black feathery minidress. We're not sure this is our favorite look, but she gets points for originality.
