Elizabeth Banks Explains On Fleek Meaning at VH1 Big Awards

We’ve all heard the terms, “on fleek”, “bae”, “netflix and chill”. So has The Hunger Games star, Elizabeth Banks.

She taught us a little bit about these terms while parading her hot legs at the VH1 Big in 2015 With Entertainment Weekly Awards held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood last Sunday.

A combination of fly and sleek, the first definition of “On fleek” was created on Urban Dictionary in 2003. It defined the term as “smooth, nice, sweet.” A few years later, another user suggested that it can be used as a synonym for “awesome”. Artists like Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown have recorded tributes or incorporated “on fleek” into their lyrics.

Elizabeth was on fleek herself in a Giulietta sheer dress from the Spring 2016 collection paired with hot Giuseppe Zanotti patent sandals. Her footwear is from Giuseppe Zanotti’s Fall 2014 collection. She kept everything else quite simple with a black clutch and minimal jewelry.

We weren’t surprised that she was once again one of the best dressed at the event since she has always shined at red carpets.
