Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Carrie Underwood had a Cinderella moment on the white carpet at the MGM Grand Garden where the 2012 Billboard Music Awards was held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

She wore one of my favourite looks from the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 collection.

I adore this silver-and-rose tulle draped gown. Everyone gasped when it took to the runway during New York Fashion Week.

It’s no surprise that the wearer was Carrie, as she does love a frothy gown.

Oscar de la Renta accessories accompanied her dress. They included a pearl-and-crystal sapphire ‘Cara’ vanity case and silver paillette open-toe heels.

Whilst I do love a big dose of sugar on the red carpet, the look would’ve been less sickly sweet had Carrie opted to wear her hair back.

With the skirt being so frou frou, the look would’ve been balanced out with a sleeker hairstyle.

Dark eye makeup and a nude lip shade completed her look.

Taylor Swift was sticking to taking to the red carpet sans sparkle when she arrived at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday night.

She looked beautiful wearing an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2012 gown choosing not to accentuate the split.

Her red chiffon sleeveless gown with a lace bodice was so very elegant.

Billboard’s ‘Woman of the Year’ added Neil Lane jewels and Elie Saab shoes accessorized her look.

Her trademark curls appear to be no more as she once again sported sleek, straight tresses.

A natural pink lip colour completed her look.

Do you like Taylor’s new direction, or are you missing the sparkle?

Katy Perry swept the white carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, last night.

Keeping with a purple colour theme, the singer wore a Blumarine Fall 2012 gown with an open back.

Her iced-out metallic lilac drop-waist gown features a bodice covered with iridescent sequins before cascading down to a lightly embellished chiffon skirt.

Katy’s hair and makeup don’t work for me.

The purple curly locks and deep-plum-purple lip shade feel too heavy for this spring-like Fall dress.

Alicia Keys looked very elegant as she made her way down the red carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards yesterday evening.

Showing off her gorgeous body, she donned a figure-hugging Azzedine Alaia Couture gown.

Her long-sleeve patterned dark-berry gown was accessorized with a selection of Repossi rose-gold hooped earrings and Jennifer Fisher rings.

I love the braided updo and the candy-pink lip colour.

This look might not have been weather appropriate, but since Alicia is so hit-and-miss on the red carpet, I have to simply appreciate this hit.

Jordin Sparks attended the 2012 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, last night.

She kept things simple wearing a nude Diane von Furstenberg ‘Zarita’ floral lace dress with scalloped trim and three-quarter sleeves.

Her pretty dress was styled with David Yurman jewels and black Diane von Furstenberg T-bar heels.

A side-swept wavy ponytail and pretty makeup completed the shock-factor-free look.

You may remember that Amanda De Cadenet wore this same dress in grey recently.

Sporting a rather risqué look, Miley Cyrus walked the red carpet at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, last night.

She wore a Jean Paul Gaultier ivory double-breasted jacket and a mini dress.

The 19-year-old accessorized with Jacquie Aiche jewels and striped Christian Louboutin ankle-strap peep-toes.

A voluminous do, kohl-rimmed eyes and a pink pout completed her look.

Hair-colour aside, this look would’ve been great had the styling not been so sloppy.

There is something half a**ed about this look that’s jarring me.
