The Billboard Music Awards celebrate the most popular musicians and singers in the Billboard Top 100 charts – they’re a big deal as they’re based on music the public are buying. The event was covered live on the E! channel, which also covers the Oscars, and the Billboard awards are just as important to the music industry.
As the celebs know they’ll be watched by millions around the world on TV as well as having their photo in all the magazines, they make a real effort to stand out. They don’t just dress up, they dress to ensure that they look the best. This year, I think a lot of stars looked stunning, especially the ones who worked the metallic look. It was a sunny day in LA and the stars who went for silver and sequins really shone in the sun.
These are my personal favourite outfits:
Britney’s back! Britney’s performing nightly at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and it’s done wonders for her figure. She won the Millenium award, recognising all her work over the past decade and she showed the audience just how much she deserved it by opening the awards with a spectacular pole-dancing performance. After all that, why wouldn’t she show off in a silver dress – she’s proud of what she’s achieved and she looks gorgeous.
Ciara also went for a silver and her silver maxi dress attracted everyone’s attention. Singers are used to wearing dramatic costumes on the stage and so they know just what to wear on the red carpet to make people stop and stare. I love it!
Move over Beyonce! Former Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland looked bootylicious in a sequin and white maxi dress. I loved the fishtail effect as it made her curves look incredible. She’s also a former X factor judge and she definitely has the X Factor in this maxi dress.
Ariana was one of the few celebs who didn’t go for metallics, but her blue maxi dress was pretty attention grabbing! The halterneck gives her a feminine shape and I like how she’s pulled her hair back to make the most of the neckline. Ariana’s been doing tons of press recently to promote her latest album and she always looks incredible – it’s impressive!
I love Rihanna’s attitude. She wears exactly what she wants, regardless of any dress code. She knows what her best assets are – her super long legs – and so she often dresses to show them off just like she did in this mini dress. I don’t blame her because if you know what suits you, you should wear similar things as much as possible. Worn with a smile and attitude, you can get away with anything.
Meghan looked really pretty in a sequin dress. She’s got a great hourglass shape and this long sleeve dress really enhances it. The sequins reflected the cameras flashbulbs and helped her to make a dramatic entrance. That was her turn to take centre stage and she made the most of every single minute of it.
Mila attended the event with her man Ashton Kutcher and made the most of it in a strapless mini dress. She must have upstaged some of the singers as this look is worthy of an award even though Mila doesn’t sing. It’s a perfect look for a summer party – you won’t over heat and that means you can dance all night long!
I loved the British actress’s white maxi dress. It looked chic and elegant, and she looked pretty without it looking like she’d tried too hard. White is the ideal colour for summer as it enhances most skin tones and makes you look more tanned. What do you think?
Who do you think looked the best? I couldn’t believe how many stars wore metallics – it was almost like the Met Ball gala all over again. It’s clearly a popular way to stand out this summer.
