Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Carly Rae Jepsen In Dyanthe - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Showing off her new red hair, Carly Rae Jepsen took to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards blue carpet on Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The multiple nominee and winner of the Top Digital Song Artist trophy chose a Dyanthe Fall 2012 frock for her big night.

The black mesh design, with strategically placed panels, unfortunately did little to impress, though. Bunching and gathering in some places, it seemed a bit ill-fitting.

And I just wanted to pull off those flimsy side sashes that added nothing but a distracting edge to the look.

The singer paired the see-through dress with metallic-accented Gio Diev platform pumps and Isharya jewels, but a belly button is rarely an accessory I want to see on the red carpet.

Love the lightened-up hair; now if her look had just followed suit.

Stana Katic In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
When ‘Castle’ actress Stana Katic took to the blue carpet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, my first reflection was disco diva.

Then, I thought: Pop star Cheryl Cole definitely has a doppelgänger tonight.

Like Miley Cyrus, the statuesque Stana strutted out our second jumpsuit of the evening in this Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2013 Couture design.

The funky white and metallic embellished suit, featuring a plunging neckline and a silver honeycomb belt, had ‘Saturday Night Fever’ written all over it.

The Canadian star ratcheted up the volume of this retro redux even more with big—very big—blown-out hair and a smokey eye.

It was all bordering on a bit much. But that aside, my favourite part of the look was Stana’s stacks of chunky eye candy, with her statement rings that cluttered both hands.

Chloe Moretz In Fendi - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Chloe Moretz was certainly in the mood to have fun at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday evening judging by her look.

She sported a colour-block Fendi Spring 2013 frock which had been shortened from the runway.

The look was already quite busy with its geometric panels and multi-coloured frayed skirt, however, the young actress – who has quite an impressive shoe collection – added an interesting pair of Fendi black open-toe sandals with black-and-white beaded accents.

What would I change about this look? The leather corseted belt.

While the objective was to nip in her waist; I think it has done the opposite.

Sleek straight tresses completed her look.

Shania Twain In Pavoni by Mikael D - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Country superstar Shania Twain took to the blue carpet of Sunday’s 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

One of the evening’s presenters, the singer brought an aura of formality—and a delicate diva edge—to the Billboard proceedings in her sweeping, pale-blue Pavoni by Mikael D. gown.

The strapless, Grecian-goddess design featured draped layers of silvery chiffon and a long train. Shania skipped a necklace in favour of a sparkling statement cuff on each wrist and a simple set of earrings.

Working a lighter auburn hair colour, she styled her long locks into voluminous waves to complete the look.

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?

Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad Couture - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Jennifer Lopez paraded out her signature brand of sexy glamour at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, where she walked the blue carpet with boy-toy, Casper Smart.

Like Taylor Swift and Emmy Rossum, the singer-actress worked to her advantage a Zuhair Murad design, this time from the Spring 2013 Couture archives.

The magpie in me wants to love this Midas moment. It was shiny. It was gold. And it had more than enough glitziness to go around. Sin City is certainly bringing out the sequins tonight.

But with the plunging neckline, the leggy sheer effect and that hourglass silhouette, I was having a bit of J. Lo deja-vu.

It seems like we’ve been there, seen that.

Naturally, only a bronzed glow and a smattering of gold accessories would do in this case. So a metallic micro-clutch and matching pointy Christian Louboutin heels completed the look.
