Charli XCX In Vintage – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

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.

Meghan Trainor In Badgley Mischka – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Meghan Trainor In Badgley Mischka - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Meghan Trainor attended the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17) as a nine-time nominee, including Top Female Artist.

Before taking to the stage to perform with John Legend, the ‘All About That Bass’ singer was all about the sparkle in her Badgley Mischka dark forest-green sequin gown.

Glitzy enough for the Vegas awards show, with the sultry addition of a side slit, the dress still struck a more elegant note with its covered-up silhouette.

I would have expected her to wear a more youthfully exuberant look, but perhaps her more reserved performance played a role in this glam entrance.

Laverne Cox In Marc Bouwer – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

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

One of the evening’s presenters, she wore a feisty Marc Bouwer mini-dress that flaunted fun and sexy appeal.

All-over mirrored embellishment and studs made this little number quite the notable punk disco ball.

While the heavy black eyeliner could have been taken down a few notches, her red lip and chic-sleek ponytail put another layer of polish on this high-shine look.

Kylie Jenner In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Kylie Jenner In Balmain - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Kylie Jenner was also in attendance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

Like her sister Kendall, Kylie was also donning a Balmain design, hers from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The structured black leather mini-dress, enhanced with gold piping and a metal belt, had a tough, rock-princess edge, although it comes across as a bit passé if only because we’ve seen it—and others like it—many times before.

You may remember that Karolina Kurkova wore the same dress a couple years back.

Cage heels completed the look that actually was quite striking with her jet-black locks.
