Divas and Darlings - Billboard Music Awards 2011

Red Carpet Fashion
The Billboard Music Awards 2011

Las Vegas glittered with singing stars at last nights' Billboard Music Awards. 
Here is the best and worst of the red carpet arrivals.

All Black

Fergie 'dominated' in an Hervé Léger leather dress with cut-outs, clasps, a harness, high neck, peplum skirt and very smokey eyes. Her fringed clutch is by Alexander McQueen and platforms by Christian Louboutin. Nicole Kidman played it safe in a short sleeved, long length beaded gown with pockets by Dolce & Gabbana. She wore her hair in a loose side plait. Kylie Minogue's little black embellished dress is by Alexander McQueen. She towers in fringed booties by Christian Louboutin. Selena Gomez is a knockout in Dolce & Gabbana. The Disney star's black dress featured hip cut-outs, a sweetheart neckline and thigh high slit. Her gorgeous ankle strap sandals with red bows are by Giuseppe Zanotti.

Something Different
Rihanna accepted the 'Top Female Artist' and 'Radio Artist of the Year' award at the event. She was surprisingly toned down in a loose-fitting white suit by Max Azria. She paired it with nude pointy toe heels by Christian Louboutin. Kelly Rowland wore a hot pink bandage mini by Hervé Léger with strappy nude sandals. Taylor Swift was slightly overdressed but sparkled nevertheless in a gold sequined gown by Elie Saab. Her Veronica Lake side swept waves look so beautiful. Taylor won the 'Top Album Artist' and 'Top Country Artist' award. Keri Hilson chose a 70's inspired Rachel Roy chartreuse mini with sheer sleeves and a green belt.

 'Oh No' Outfits
Singer and model Nayer looked like a psychedelic maypole with multi-coloured ribbons tossed over her nude bodysuit. I don't think Ke$ha will ever make any best dressed lists. She wore a glittery grey mini with cuts in all the wrong places and a tulle train. Nicki Minaj likes making bold unfashionable statements but this light blue sequin-tassel outfit really belongs to Cirque du Soleil. You would think that Platinum selling artist Beyonce could afford to buy a dress but no - she just wound some silver string around her. This is truly hideous and by that expression on her face, I think she knows it too.
