The Billboard Music Awards took place on Sunday night bringing out the biggest and best from the music industry. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the fashion stakes, which featured more WTF’s than Favs.
Host Ciara stole the show with not one, not two, but SEVEN outfits changes, with one more daring than the last. From Philipp Plein to Michael Costello, Ciara ensured that all eyes were on her through the awards.
She’s debuted with this Philipp Plein side boob, side leg, side everything metallic number, that showcased a body one can only dream of.
As she changed her looks throughout the night, it was evident she was going to do no wrong. My personal favourite has to be the burgundy number with the plunging neckline, perfect shoulder pads and button detail.
Just one other celebrity stood out as a fashion fav for me, Kate Beckinsale in Melina Dzinovic. White is a colour I steer clear of because of tan marks, on the pit area specifically, so I admire, and envy, anyone who can wear white and pull it off. The plunging neckline is subtle and classy, but this dress is definitely all party in the back, with a very daring cut out detail.
The rest of the celebrities fell rather flat in the fashion department. Black ensembles accompanied with a smokey eye flooded the red carpet in Las Vegas, but it proved to be all too much for some celebs to pull off.
Rihanna can normally do no wrong, but this Thierry Mugler brown silk shirt dress left her looking washed out. Since Lady Gaga has been keeping relatively quiet lately, it has left an attention seeking void that singer Z Lala was only too happy to fill. Another singer to hit a bum note was Halsey, whose asymmetric white cut out dress looked as though it was stitched together on the way to the T-Mobile Arena. Three massive thumbs down, sorry ladies.
Britney Spears was back to her awkward lip syncing best at the awards, much to the delight of many as she gave a medley “performance” of her classic hits over the years. I still just can’t comprehend how she doesn’t know how to lip sync her own songs by now. Britney you need to call up RuPaul and get some lessons honey, it’s past the point of embarrassing now.
