Rita Ora In Fausto Puglisi – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Rita Ora In Fausto Puglisi - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Rita Ora attended the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

On the red carpet, she fully admitted to E! that she went commando in her Fausto Puglisi white gown, embellished with the designer’s signature sunburst hardware.

After all, there was no place for panties with this dress that was slit to here, there, and everywhere.

My wish would have been that there was no cutout at the stomach, as that particular one cheapened the look more so than the other splices.

Her styling was taken in a decidedly glam direction with blonde waves and a red lip for classic old Hollywood appeal, finished off by white Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a selection of Ileana Makri, Djula, and Carrera y Carerra jewels.

Mariah Carey In Tom Ford – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Mariah Carey In Tom Ford - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Mariah Carey was one of the performers at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

The singer’s Tom Ford look was clearly experiencing an identity crisis, unsure if it was a short black mini-dress or long gown.

That aside, the silhouette wasn’t a particularly flattering one for her and the Saint Laurent platform heels only added insult to injury.

Neck up, it was fine with her long waves and David Yurman earrings.

Chrissy Teigen In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Chrissy Teigen In Balmain - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Chrissy Teigen co-hosted the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with Ludacris, where she was on the red carpet before taking the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

Shimmering in a Balmain Spring 2015 plunge jumpsuit for her first look of the night, she channeled plenty of disco dazzle.

Assuring the retro bombshell vibe, she wore her hair in long voluminous waves and skipped the runway’s black bandeau top in order to sexily maximize her assets.

You may remember Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has also donned this look, but Chrissy made it her own with the addition of a wide black belt.

Does the belt change the look enough for its second outing?

Lily Aldridge In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Lily Aldridge was also in attendance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17), where she also appeared on-screen in gal-pal Taylor Swift’s music-video premiere of ‘Bad Blood.’

Another one of designer Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain beauties, the model strutted out a gown from the Balmain Fall 2015 collection.

Significantly pared down from its runway presentation, the royal purple and black dress still brought the requisite leggy slit.

Adding a layer of personality, she wore a cheeky ‘Frostbite’ clutch and gold cuff along with Giuseppe Zanotti mules, which were a refreshing change of pace from black sandals and pumps.

Charli XCX In Vintage – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Charli XCX was also on the red carpet at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

The lady was certainly a vamp tonight.

The singer, who is nominated for ‘Fancy’ with Iggy Azalea, wore a black vintage gown that was actually rather nondescript, even when paired with an Edie Parker clutch and Vivienne Westwood jewels.

Add in messy, bedhead locks, a kohl-shadowed eye, and blood-red lip and the goth side comes out to play.

However, this was still a rather lacklustre addition to the evening.

Taraji P. Henson In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Taraji P. Henson In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Taraji P. Henson attended the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

The ‘Empire’ actress may have been one of the evening’s presenters, but she undoubtedly still garnered plenty of attention in her figure-hugging Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2015 Couture black gown that had the designer’s signature sexy cutouts firmly in place.

Upon seeing this dress, all I could think about was where have I seen this before. And then it dawned on me that Miley Cyrus wore the same one to the 2015 Grammy Awards.

Although Taraji brings more power and presence to the gown, I have a feeling that the skin-baring boldness and hipbone ink may still put some off fully embracing round two of this look.
