The annual Rip The Runway show aired on BET last night, blending some of hip-hop’s freshest voices with an eclectic mix of fashion collections. Newcomers Nicki Minaj and Pooch Hall hosted the event, which was filmed at Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday night. Minaj later made a cameo, joining the stage to perform with veteran rapper Ludacris.

Other performers for the night included British songstress Estelle, Soulja Boy, and pint-sized songbird Janelle Monae, who rocked an androgynous black-and-white getup.
Models grooved along the runway, mingling with performers while showing off the latest collections from designers like Tracy Reese (a favorite of Michelle Obama’s) and Protege.
Also in attendance was Dwight Eubanks, a.k.a the sixth Real Housewife of Atlanta, who rained pearls of fashion wisdom throughout the night.
Did you miss all the action last night? Don’t fret. An encore performance will air this Thursday, March 18 at 8 p.m. on BET.
