Hayden Panettiere In Halston Heritage – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Hayden Panettiere In Halston Heritage - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Hayden Panettiere hit a sophisticated note at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, hosted on Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

As a presenter, the ‘Nashville’ star took a refined approach to the evening’s daring dress code in a Halston Heritage Spring 2013 black halter gown.

The backless design featured tiered layers at the bodice, which the actress delicately accented with minimal David Yurman jewels and a reflective gold cylinder Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch that I loved.

The finishing touches came with side-swept old-Hollywood waves, barely-detectable makeup and a glossed lippie.

Even though Hayden didn’t startle us with all-out flash, her subtle-chic look was hardly a snooze fest.

Boring or beautiful?

    Way too dull and mature for her and for the event.

      +1 Agreed.

    First Emmy and now Hayden. What is it with these dreary black gowns? Both of them can do SO much better. This, if any, is the event to wear a bright frock to.

    This would have been better in a different color.

    I think she’s working this sophisticated look rather well but it doesn’t fit the place and occasion.
    She looks so good in springtime colors too, so I’m disappointed.

    In the close ups on Getty, she does seem to be wearing teal eyeshadow and has little diamonds (?) all in the side of her pulled-back hair. Love the backless part of the dress. Sexy AND sophisticated… not something she always pulls off.

    I think Hayden looks beautiful but I have to agree with Moxie, if it’d been a different color, she would’ve looked fantastic and more event appropriate

    Hair and makeup = beautiful.
    Everything else = boring.

    Beautiful, but wrong for this event.

    I actually love the ruffled front and it’s one of the best on a tacky night.
