Music award ceremonies are always a good reason to let loose and be adventurous with your styling. While some celebs do just that, some of them stick to the tried and tested route (ala J-Lo) and work it just as well. Here is my Top 5 list from the recently held Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.
:: Selena Gomez ::
This was my favorite dress on the blue carpet at the Billboard Music Awards. Selena Gomez’ crisp white Atelier Versace gown is from the Spring 2013 couture collection. The thigh high slit and slashes of skin are trademark Versace – and a bit risque for Selena. I am obsessed with the multicolored, neon piping which keeps this dress really youthful, fun and completely perfect for this event. A wispy ponytail and Jimmy Choo Lance sandals complete the look. I wish she had opted for a bright shoe matching one of the piping colors for her shoe, the silver is too mellow for this.
:: Jennifer Lopez ::
Jennifer Lopez sizzled on the red carpet in her metallic gold couture Zuhair Murad gown. I know we have seen this look a hundred times from J-Lo but I don’t care, I love her. The dress has a gilded look with feather applique’s cascading down the plunging bodice onto a sheer skirt. A metallic clutch and matching Loubies complete the look. I would prefer a high ponytail and dark smoky eyes with this dress to make it POP. But she still works it.
:: Miley Cyrus ::
Miley Cyrus seems to be having a good run lately. Which is saying a lot. The pop star opted for a funky Balmain jumpsuit from the Spring 2013 collection. Her jumpsuit, which is a mishmash of baroque embroidery and embellished checks, has a lot going on. On anyone else this would have looked almost comical, but she is making it work. It totally works. The platinum pixie and poppy red lips look great, although I wish she would stop making that stupid looking pout. She has the edge to make quirky, high fashion looks work. It is when she starts trying too hard that she comes across looking like a complete moron.
:: Taylor Swift ::
Taylor Swift opted for a gorgeous shade of blue which is calling out to my heart. Her metallic minidress is Zuhair Murad. J-Lo and Swift cannot get enough of ZM. The dress features sequined, geometric embroidery and sheer mesh panels along the neckline and back. Love the long sleeves on her. I wish she hadn’t chosen such aunty-ish earrings, but I will let that slide. Gray Jimmy Choos complete the look.
:: Emmy Rossum ::
Looks like Zuhair Murad was the king of the Billboard Awards. Like J-lo and Taylor, Emmy Rossum also opted for a Spring 2013 Zuhair Murad gown, but hers has a totally different vibe. Emmy took the sophisticated route with her dramatic black gown which has sheer, polka dot panels which are quite reminiscent of Stella McCartney. I love the vibe of this gown – very goth glamour. Her makeup is amazing, as usual but I wish she had done something more contemporary with the hair – this do is a little too serious for the Billboard Awards.
