Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Shakira In Julien Macdonald - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Before her performance during the show, Shakira walked the red carpet of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas tonight (May 18).

The singer wore a pretty blue long-sleeved dress from Julien Macdonald’s Fall 2014.

The patterned sheer paneling is an interesting take on the hot trend, and by forgoing any dramatic jewelry, Shakira definitely lets this dress do the talking.

I do feel like the chunky black platforms are out of place, and wish she’d opted for a strappy silver sandal or even a nude pump instead.

Simple but classic hair and makeup are perfectly Shakira, and keep the singer well within her comfort zone.

Nothing too dramatic, but a lovely turn on the red carpet.

Iggy Azalea In Zuhair Murad - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Iggy Azalea performed her hit, ‘Fancy,’ at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, held on Sunday (May 18) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But before her stage time, she took a glam turn down the red carpet in a Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2014 crimson gown.

The gracefully fluid halter dress, with a sheer exploded lace bodice and sleeve, had a romantic sensibility that softened the Aussie rapper’s sometimes harder edges.

Long flowing locks, subtle makeup and a petal-pink lip also contributed to the effect.

Nicki Minaj In Alexander McQueen - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Nicki Minaj turned heads at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, held on Sunday (May 18) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Her new restrained and refined style personality shows no sign of letting up, as she once again eschewed her crazier theatrics and fashion contraptions for a far quieter outing.

Continuing her recent run of Alexander McQueen gowns, she selected a black cutout design from the Spring 2014 collection.

Unlike her black McQueen at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, this one wasn’t over-accessorized, as she smartly accented the dress with two cuffs and statement earrings.

Retro waves and a subtle smoky eye were all that she needed to wrap up this elegant-edgy look.

Even though we’ve already seen this gown on Brandy Norwood earlier this year, I still cannot help but be impressed with Nicki’s effort.

Kendall Jenner In Olcay Gulsen - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

After attending the Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony, Kendall Jenner jetted back to the States for her presenter duties at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 18) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The model and reality star flaunted an Olcay Gulsen Spring 2014 jumpsuit, featuring a cutaway white halter top and shiny metallic, midnight-blue pants.

From the barely-there proportions of the top to the high-waist and cropped shape of the pants, this silhouette isn’t an easy one to wear. However, the statuesque Kendall rocks it well.

Silver sling-back pumps and a cylindrical clutch, along with board-straight locks and smoldering makeup, completed the look.

I have to say I like the streamlined sizzle that she brought to the show.

Lucy Hale In Alex Perry - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Lucy Hale was also at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 18) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

One of the presenters of the night, the starlet embraced the colour-blocking trend in a Alex Perry dress.

The contrasting bold navy, yellow and pink shades proved compatible here, with the lace fabrication providing a feminine flair.

Focusing on the blue hue of her dress, she accessorized with ankle-strap sandals and a Charlotte Olympia clutch, while a watermelon lip picked up on the pink.

Side-swept waves and a mix of jewels completed her pretty outing.

Cher Lloyd In Mikael D - 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Cher Lloyd attended the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, hosted on Sunday evening (May 18) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The British musician wore a Mikael D purple, cap-sleeved cocktail dress featuring black bodycon detailing and no lack of extreme beading.

She completed the hyper embellished look with metallic, peep-toe heels, a pretty fuchsia lip and two-tone hair coaxed into a high top knot.

While I appreciate her embrace of colour, the overall effect translated as a bit overwrought and costume-y.
