The 26-year-old singer wore a barely-there outfit while walking the red carpet at the awards show on Sunday night (June 26) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Summer attended the show as a nominee in the Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and BET Her Award categories.
The designer of the outfit, Laurel Street, issued an apology after being criticized for “sexualizing” the clothes of indigenous people.

“I am of South Asian heritage I understand we should have mentioned the beautiful Hmong culture,” the brand wrote on Instagram Stories. “I didn’t mean to offend any of you, I love to celebrate all cultures [and] diversity … I apologies [sic] for not sharing and educating on the history of the Hmong people and I will further educate myself. I understand a lot of you are offended that was not my intention at all … it was not our intention to sexualise [sic] theses [sic] pieces but more a celebration of life and the beauty of women.”
