We Don't Walk, We Strut Down the Runway

Get ready for the biggest night in BET fashion, the place where music and fashion officially meet. BET's Rip The Runway '08 has the biggest celebrities, the hottest new clothing, and the looks you need to be fly.

Last night, the show taped in New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom. Hosted by rapper Nelly and actress Lauren London, and executive produced this year by Diddy, the excitement of this year's Rip The Runway was amazing. Full of exclusive performances, celebrity models, designer fashions, and bangin' music, Rip The Runway is a show you won't want to miss.

This year, BET featured the newest designs from fashion lines such as Sean John, Apple Bottom, Amaya Swimwear, Respect M.E., Zac Posen, and more. Even Snoop Dogg got his fashion on, when he debuted his line as well as that of his wife. "My wife got her line Coco Ri and I got my line Rich & Infamous and we’re just trying to come out here as husband and wife and push something out there for the people, something for the males, something for the females, something for the little boys. It’s a group thing right here," Snoop Dogg told BET.com back in the media room.

Celebrity models who strutted down the runway include Toccara, Charli Baltimore, 106 & Park's Terrence J. and Rocsi, America's Next Top Model winner Jaslene Gonzalez, The Wire's Lil Snoop, host Lauren London and more. Once again, the event featured plus-sized models, but Toccara almost didn't fit as the BET host showed up with a much slimmer figure.

But the fun didn't stop at fashion as performances by the musical guests kept things in the air. Flo Rida got low with T-Pain, and even Nelly couldn't help but join in on the song that gives props to Nelly's own Apple Bottoms clothing line. And as always, Missy Elliott captivated the audience and brought the house down with "Ching-A-Ling." Other performances included Diddy's Day 26, N.E.R.D., Webbie, Trey Songz, and Snoop Dogg. It was be a night full of surprises, as well as familiar faces so you don't want to miss it. Be sure to tune in Tuesday, March 4 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
