2018 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of drama at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Celebrities joined, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez.

Padma Lakshmi: The ‘Top Chef’ host glimmered in The Blonds. It had sensuality and shimmer, but it would have benefited from editing. Had the sequined fabric been on the bustier and the satin as the draped layer, it might have been more successful.

Hailey Baldwin: The model took the plunge in Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2018. The draping is splendid but the colour doesn’t do anything. The black version from the lookbook would have been preferable or a rich jewel tone. Not even the Jennifer Fisher jewels could enliven it.

Cyn: Cannes showcased a few similar looks to this Saint Laurent Fall 2018 dress, but with much stronger shoulders. The arm likely won’t prove as irksome as the heavy ruching on the skirt and the placement of the tie.

Kelly Clarkson: The host was clad in a dramatic Christian Siriano gown. The sculpted neckline with embellished lining has such a striking face-framing finish, but all of the other accessories take away from it.

Julia Michaels: She has had a few whimsical princess moments, but this look with Morphew dress and Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Ellie’ sandals is not her best. The bodice looks unfinished and there are construction issues.

Normani: The singer showed serious skin in Lethicia Bronstein. It brings to mind a boudoir look and lacked the finish that Ciara‘s sensual dress had.

Maren Morris: The fabrics and style of this Azzaro Couture Spring 2017 dress and Giuseppe Zanotti ‘G Heel’ sandals unfortunately presented a prom feeling.

Justine Skye: Another one who went with a visible lingerie look, she was clad in AMEN and Lynn Ban jewels. It suited her experimental style, but there’s something off about the treatment of the embellishment.

    There’s so little to like in this group. It’s disappointing. I only give props to Cyn for the sweet 80s flair.

    Julia’s dress is dreadful and Normani’s nightgown just makes me sad.

    I love Kellys dress but I don’t think she was the right person to wear it. Shame

    These looks range from meh to somehow the worst that I have seen on the RC this year. The bottom row is especially awful as is Julia’s dress.

    Padma’s dress should have have a more Thierry Mugler dramatic structure especially on the waist line

    These are some of the worst dresses I’ve ever seen, especially the white one.

    Kelly over-accessorized that dress, which is really a shame considering that it was a very flattering choice for her.

    I agree with the commentary on Padma, somehow there’s a disconnect between the contrasting fabrics but can’t deny that’s one hot 47 year old. Cyn looks cute, shes rocking the retro vibe well. I’m so distressed over Normandi, I’m no prude but I feel like she was always the most sexualised out of the 5 girls and it looks like it’s the route they’ll continue to take for her solo career.

    I really don’t understand why they keep choosing dresses with these plunges. On videos from red carpet Hailey kept covering her chest and trying to put more fabric there…She looked so uncomfortable.

    Is Maren’s dress really Couture?
    If so, this is the worst Couture dress i’ve ever seen.
