BET Awards arrivals are in full swing, and Fantasia showed up making a dramatic statement. 

The American Idol winner turned heads in a white mini-dress that revealed her toned shoulders and kept her forearms covered with folds of white, billowy fabric. 

Fantasia, 34, set the look off with elegant, crystal-encrusted drop earrings that fell to the nape of her neck.

At one point while photographed, Fantasia and her businessman husband Kendall Taylor, 38, were caught in the middle of a passionate kiss.

The pair were wed on July 18, 2015 – but not before Fantasia ‘married herself’ first, as she mentioned to E! News back in 2017.

‘Before I met him I bought a ring and married myself. That’s crazy, right?’

‘I married myself because I felt like before true love could come I needed to learn how to love myself again, and so for me I forgot about myself.’ 

The singer continued: ‘I was so busy trying to take care of everybody else so busy looking for that love that I was ending up in all the wrong situations so I came here to do After Midnight, jazz…so that was a breath of fresh air for me, and so I said I’m going to marry myself.’ 

And thanks to her husband, Barrino now spends more of her alone time reading books.

‘I read a lot now. I used to hate to read, hated it, and now I can’t stop reading,’ she told CNN. 

‘And you know, who inspired me with that? My husband. He reads all day long.’  

Barrino has been nominated for five BET Awards over the years including Best New Artist and Best Female R&B/Pop Artist.
