Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Looks…

Celebrities wandered through the Billboard Music Awards ‘pink’ carpet in Las Vegas this past Sunday, and this years trend of glitz, skin and thigh high heels is still traveling on. The night was hosted by Ciara who in a matter of three hours, wore seven different outfits and looked unbelievable in every single one. So to start off the list of my best and worst dressed of the night…

billboard-music-awards-red-carpet-dresses-2016

Ciara in Philipp Plein – Clearly winning at everything, including Best Side-Boob Award.

 

demi-lovato

Demi Lovato in Chanel – She’s always pulling off amazing looks that aren’t your typical carpet gowns. Go Demi!

 

zendaya

Zendaya in Calvin Klein – Can I just mention her brows? *faints*

 

halsey

Halsey in Fausto Puglisi – I love the off-beat unique-ness of this dress with the change in shoulder straps and array of jeweled designs, and she rocks it!

 

kelly-rowland

Kelly Rowland in Labourjoisie – Making a debut in the sheer, sequined department, the trends getting a bit old but it’s still stunning and everyone looks so good in it, including her.

 

mila-kunis

Mila Kunis in Zuhair Murad – Looking like such an adorable gem!

 

jessica-alba

Jessica Alba also in Zuhair Murad and Stuart Weitzman – (Zuhair Murad is killing it, incase you couldn’t tell)

 

kesha

Kesha in Gucci – The star typically struts carpets in the most unique of ensembles and she addressed Sunday nights appearance with the same memo, and looks amazing! That fringe – killer. Lets not forget the Gucci shoes *swoon*.

 

lucy-hale

Lucy Hale in Zuhair Murad – Damn, Murad really is killing it (talk about the understatement of the week). Going to make a mural in his honor next to my bed as we speak.

 

 

Now getting to the looks I didn’t quite prefer…

rihanna

Rihanna in vintage Thierry Mugler – I’m sorry, but I was greatly disappointed by this and had to add it in here due to the fact of my disappointment. Rihanna, who is always turning heads at every event for her style choices looked somewhat like a medieval grandma this past weekend, in the most beautiful way, but regardless…

 

britney-spears

Britney Spears in Reem Acra and Schutz heels – Yes, she’s totally killing it at 34, but this was just not flattering on her at all. She already has short, muscular legs, and the thigh high heels just make her look shorter and stockier. Kudos to her though, for still being the total babe she was in her younger years, now.

 

kathryn-hahn

Kathryn Hahn in Altuzarra  – This is not at all flattering to her body shape. Not only that, but the abrupt change in design/fabric (looks somewhat like a top and a skirt together) has a strange shape that’s lacking some flow. This could be amazing, just not on her.

Met Gala 2015…

The Met Gala calls for big, elegant, timeless classic gowns. This years was China themed. It’s one of my favourite red carpet events because of the beautiful classic sophisticated looks. The chances of you seeing Miley Cyrus half naked with a blunt in her hand are just extremely unlikely (this, is a good thing my friends). I’m all about tastefulness and so is this night. Here are some of my favourite looks from the carpet that you’ll definitely want to see…

Kim Kardashian West in Robert Cavalli

There were a lot of great dresses at the Met Gala this year, but these are the ones that I thought were not only beautiful, but embraced the classic Met Gala red carpet look and class!
