In this series of red carpet pictures, see some of the brightest R&B, hip-hop and pop stars as they strut their stuff at the 2011 BET Awards. The annual awards show, which are being held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, honor accomplishments in music, acting, and sports.

The red carpet was a stunning spectacle, with R&B divas like Alicia Keys, Keri Hilson and Kelly Rowland looking like knock-outs before the show. Keys looked beautiful and classy in a black pantsuit, white blazer, black-and-white heels and fiery red lipstick. Hilson looked sexy in her strapless top, and Rowland stopped the show in her hot pink flamenco-inspired mini-dress. The dudes were in good showing too, with the dapper Bruno Mars looking super fly as usual and Justin Bieber looking more rock than rap in his denim vest and shades.
