Kelly Rowland In Rami Al Ali Couture – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Kelly Rowland In Rami Al Ali Couture - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Kelly Rowland made a dazzling, near dizzying entrance at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Wearing another of this evening’s shiny confections, the singer selected a Rami Al Ali Spring 2013 Couture silver gown embossed with holographic-like paillettes.

On the runway, this long, wraparound dress was reminiscent of a modern ‘Great Gatsby’ mood. But, on Kelly, with the silhouette snugged up and the slit way more defined, the vibe changed from a ’20s ball gown to a straight-up disco-ball.

I’m glad she opted for a single-strand necklace and a small bangle, rather than piling on even more glitz with too-many jewels. A heavy fringe bang and a lavender-pink lippie finished the look.

Do you like her splashy transformation of this sparkling dress?

Taylor Swift In Zuhair Murad – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift In Zuhair Murad - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Top Artist nominee Taylor Swift rocked her own shade of royal cerulean on the blue carpet of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

It came as no shock that the glam-loving Taylor wearing a look from a king of glamour, Zuhair Murad. But, slightly more surprising was that she picked out this mini from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

She transitioned out of her normal goddess-gown mode to work this sparkling disco dress, which was awash in geometrically patterned sequins and featured sheer illusion panels at the front and back.

The uber-short frock showed off her never-ending legs, which only multiplied in length with her pair of sky-high, strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Suki’ sandals.

A bright pink lippie and a chicly effortless ponytail added a soft note to all the glitzy edge.

Miley Cyrus In Balmain – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Miley Cyrus In Balmain - 2013 Billboard Music Awards
Miley Cyrus looked like the most glam race-car-driver ever at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards tonight, hosted by Tracy Morgan at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The entertainer skipped out on the gown memo and marched to the beat of her own flashy fashion drum in this power jumpsuit from the Balmain Spring 2013 collection.

Featuring glittery black-and-silver harlequin checks, overlaid with lacy basketry-inspired embroidery, this look was bold, brash and had the level of bravura that we’ve come to expect with the pompadour-flaunting starlet.

Even with the ’90s-era extravagance, I still found myself fascinated by this over-the-top moment. I almost wish Miley had taken it all the way by wearing the runway’s hula hoop earrings.

That platinum quiff and a deep scarlet lip completed the sporty glamazon-rocker effect.

Emmy Rossum In Zuhair Murad – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Emmy Rossum In Zuhair Murad - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

A standing ovation is already in order for Emmy Rossum who attended the 2013 Billboard Music Awards tonight at Las Vegas’s MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The actress just about shut down the show’s blue carpet, when she came on the scene in her black Zuhair Murad stunner from the Fall 2013 collection.

This is how to work that seemingly ubiquitous see-through trend in all the right ways.

Showing just enough skin to be dangerous with its refined keyhole cutout and transparent polka-dot tulle, the long-sleeve, mermaid-silhouette gown conveyed high-glamour—and just a touch of elegant goth—at its finest.

A fantastic pair of pendant earrings were all that was really needed in the accessories department, while Emmy’s loosely upswept ‘do and mauve-y nude makeup were an unexpectedly refreshing finish that I preferred to a standard red lip.

Jennifer Nettles In Edition by Georges Chakra – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Jennifer Nettles In Edition by Georges Chakra - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Jennifer Nettles returned to the red (ahem, blue) carpet of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, hosted this evening at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

For her presenter duties, the Sugarland singer and new mom selected an Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2013 gown.

This figure-hugging, cotton-candy-pink creation probably would not have been my first pick for her to make her svelte and glowing return. The gown’s pastel hue is a hard one to manage and, when photographed, it gave off a satin sheen that I didn’t love.

As for the glitzy sequin embellishment, it all translated as a bit too garish for my taste. Actually, it sent me straight to pageant-land.

A Swarovski clutch, Casadei heels and gorgeous Norman Silverman chunky statement rings and earrings provided a final sparkling flourish.
