Justin Bieber also sports casual look when hitting the green carpet at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday, June 26, while Kelly Rowland glams up and Bruno Mars suits up for the awards show.

Arriving at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles for the 2011 BET Awards, Hollywood stars and big names in music showed off their individual style. Among those turning heads with their looks on Sunday, June 26 afternoon were "Whip My Hair" hitmaker Willow Smith and raptress Nicki Minaj.

10-year-old Willow sported a casual, yet unique look when hitting the green carpet. This year's Video of the Year nominee, who was joined by brother Jaden Smith, wore a yellow shirt, emblazoned with father Will Smith's face, under a red leather jacket. She paired them up with a pair of black shorts and knee-high boots. Completing her look, she rocked a heart-shaped hairdo.

26-year-old Nicki, on the other hand, wore a wine colored mini dress that she paired with black boots and lace stockings. Ditching her usually colorful wig, she went with a black bob hairdo this time around. The "Moment 4 Life" hitmaker was among the early winner as she was crowned as Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

Another young star spotted making an appearance was pop sensation Justin Bieber. The "Never Say Never" singer, who is one of the celebrity presenters for the special night, came wearing black T-shirt under a denim jacket and a pair of jeans. He also sported a pair of black sneakers and donned sunglasses.

Looking lovely on the green carpet with their colorful dress were the likes of Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams (II), Keri Hilson, Keke Palmer and Meagan Good among many others. Meanwhile, Best New Artist nominee Bruno Mars and "America's Got Talent" host Nick Cannon looked sleek in their suit.

2011 BET Awards was opened with a performance by Mary J. Blige. She performed her hits "All Night Long" and "Real Love" before being joined by Anita Baker. Lil Wayne is nominated for five awards, followed by Kanye West, Drake and Rihanna with four awards each. Patti LaBelle is to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, while Steve Harvey will receive the Humanitarian Award.
