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?
