Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

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?

Kylie Minogue In Alexander McQueen – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

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.

Black Christian Louboutin ‘Change of the Guard’ fringes sandals and Lucy Hutchings jewels completed her look.

Nicki Minaj In Mark Fast & Gareth Pugh – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

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.

Rihanna In Max Azria – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Most Unpredictable Award
Rihanna was very busy at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards which was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last night.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing an oversized Max Azria white suit with nude Louboutin’s and a Jack Vartanian emerald ring.

RiRi opened the show with Britney Spears to perform, “S&M” which is very appropriate considering how they were both dressed. The singer also accepted the Radio Artist of the Year award.

Her white unbuttoned blouse showcased a gold fringe Solange Azagury-Partridge tassle necklace.

This is a very grown up sophisticated look for Rihanna, yet she still maintains her magnetic sex appeal.

I love how she’s never predictable at these events.

Selena Gomez In Dolce & Gabbana – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Va Va Voom Award
Selena Gomez attended the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas last night.

The 18 year old opted for a sexy look wearing a Dolce & Gabbana cut out dress with a gathered waist and thigh-high split.

I absolutely adore her Giuseppe Zanotti red bow front strappy sandals. It’s a welcome pop of colour.

Sleek straight hair, Neil Lane jewels and a black Judith Leiber clutch completed this fabulous look.
