Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Most Improved Award
Based on Keri Hilson’s last red carpet appearance, she was the most improved at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

The R&B singer wore a chartreuse Rachel Roy dress with sheer bell sleeves.

She opted for a pop of colour via her green belt, with the rest of her accessories in shimmering gold.

We’ve still seen much better from her.

Most Meh/Most Uninspiring Award
With most celebrities I can instantly think of one defining previous red carpet look I’ve loved, but that can’t be said for Beyonce Knowles.

The singer posed backstage after her performance at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas wearing a Lanvin Fall 2011 look.

My immediate thoughts on this look were, “Next.”

I don’t hate the dress, but I’m far from being excited about it.

Gorgeous Gown, Wrong Occasion Award
Taylor Swift was luminous with sparkling embellishments on the red carpet at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

She wore a stunning Elie Saab nude gown with bronze embellishments which she teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

I love Taylor and as you know I love Elie Saab, but for me this is a case of wrong dress for the occasion.

Like the Grammy’s, the Billboard Awards is the time to cut loose and make some bold choices.

The young singer seems considerably over dressed compared to her peers. I wish she’d taken her cues from Selena Gomez.

This gown would’ve made a bigger impact at Cannes. Taylor and Rachel McAdams should’ve swapped looks.

Was Taylor overdressed; sticking to her tried and tested formula, or did she sparkle like a princess?

Best Black On Black Award
Kylie Minogue took time out of her US tour to attend the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

She looked fabulous as always wearing an Alexander McQueen embellished silk-tulle, organza and satin dress with signature cut out shoulders from the Spring 2011 collection.

It’s a shame that the intricate beads, buttons and sequins details are not more clearly visible on Kylie’s dress, but that gorgeous smile more than makes up for it.

Stand Out/Avant-Garde Award
Nicki Minaj attended the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

The quirky singer always likes to make a big bold fashion statement, so I’m not surprised she opted for this Mark Fast Spring 2011 jumpsuit.

Her baby blue knit jumpsuit with embellished details was slightly modified with the waist panels filled in and the off-the-shoulder details removed.

White Versace lace up sandals and her favourite pink lippie completed her look.

For her performance, Nicki changed her pink curly wig for a blonde bob wig.

She also changed into a white Mark Fast knit dress with a Gareth Pugh Spring 2009 jacket.

Her jacket with the wide lapels was once again modified as it had solid black panels compared to the tiled runway version.

Britney also joined Nicki for a performance, which will explain why Brit Brit was M.I.A. on the red carpet for this event.

Nicki’s 3rd look of the night was the most demure we’ve ever seen her. She wore a black satin jumpsuit with a black blazer and black strappy Louboutin’s.
