Billboard Best Dressed: Beyonce, Keri Hilson, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift
The Billboard Music Awards aren’t the most traditional fashion event — but that’s what makes them a great opportunity for creativity.
This year’s awards included a stand-out performance by Beyonce (who looks killer in her stage outfit) and yet another lesbian Britney Spears kiss.
But what really caught my attention were some of the red-carpet outfits. Keri Hilson wore a chartreuse Rachel Roy, bell-sleeved mini dress with a turquoise belt, capturing both the 70s and color blocking trends in one night.
My personal favorite was Rihanna in a white Max Azria suit with nude Christian Louboutin heels. The low cut of her shirt and casual tailoring of her jacket and pants keep the suit glamorous, not corporate.
Selena Gomez also looked bombshell-worthy in a black cutout Dolce and Gabbana dress with red heels topped with a bow. Gomez has been a D&G regular recently, as has her tween-heartthrob boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Finally, Taylor Swift chose a sparkling gown (as always) opting for a ballerina-pink Elie Saab column gown. Though Swift looked beautiful, I’m dying to see her try something outside of her comfort zone.
