The 2018 BET Awards took place last night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It was a great show hosted by Jamie Foxx and many of the performances are still being talked about.
However, nothing seems to have drawn as much chatter as the outfit that Alexis Skyy wore while walking the red carpet.
The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star gave birth to a baby girl back in January but that didn’t stop her from putting all her assets on display while walking the BET Awards red carpet.
She donned a sheer silver “dress” made by Grayling Purnell that looked more like some sort of loosely woven chainmail.
The kicker? The outfit left literally nothing to the imagination. While Alexis did wear a pair of nude panties under her ensemble, she left her breasts completely exposed, drawing comparisons to an outfit Rihanna wore to the CFDA Awards back in 2014. The big difference here being that Alexis is NOT Rihanna and people seem to enjoy pointing that out.
It looks like Alexis Skyy wanted all eyes on her for the evening. She even went so far as to post a photo of herself wearing the dress on social media and captioned it, “Let them talk.”
That post has since been removed, assumedly by Instagram. Another was put up in its place sans nipples with another caption that reads, “Love it both ways thanks for the edit.”
Alexis clearly wants to be talked about for her decision to let it all hang out on the BET Awards red carpet. Did she expect that the reaction to her outfit would be this strong? After all, it’s not the first time a celebrity has walked a red carpet in nearly nothing.
Unfortunately for the LHHH star, most of the feedback has been negative. Twitter lit up with reactions, calling her out for failing to cover up.
Alexis Skyy is really a joke

Many of the responses were as inappropriate to share as Alexis Skyy’s dress so we’ve narrowed the Twitter reactions down to those that won’t send the censors into a rage.
Alexis Skyy should have just went naked #BETAward18

Basically, she did go naked though, right? There’s no argument that Alexis has managed to get back in shape after giving birth but did she have to show us everything?

With Season 5 of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood on the horizon, it’s possible that Alexis Skyy just wanted to make sure she was the talk of the town at the 2018 BET Awards. If so, she definitely hit her mark.
She had to know that turning up with her breasts showing wouldn’t go over well. Then again, there’s an old saying about “all press is good press” so even with the conversation being about how Alexis needs to cover up, the conversation is still about Alexis Skyy right now.
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood premieres on Monday, July 23, at 8pm EST on VH1.
