Billboard Music Awards: Best and Worst Dressed

The Billboard Music Awards are tonight, May 22nd, and the biggest stars in music are making appearances on the pink carpet. Though they may hold awards for their accomplishments in music and film, not every star at the BBMA’s was dressed to impress. Check out my picks for best and worst dressed below.

Best Dressed:

The beautiful @KateBeckinsale hands over the award for Top Billboard 200 Album at the #BBMAs!

Kate Beckinsale – This simple white dress made it to under best dressed because of the shoulder straps. As one of the mroe obvious details to the dress, it gave her elegant dress an extra oomph.


Laverne Cox – The lace details of this dress gave the demure look a bit of sex appeal. Though it’s low cut and figure-hugging it still manages to look classy and Cox wears it well.


#Ciara slaying per usual at the #bbmas 😻 #body #style #fashion #fashionista #redcarpet #slay #hair

Ciara – Ciara brought the heat tonight. Her high cut, side-boob showing dress was flattering and chic. Not to mention the all silver look made her even more eye-catching.


Harmonizers, how gorg & sleek in black is @FifthHarmony!? #BBMAs #5HBBMAs

Fifth Harmony – These ladies left me speechless. They coordinated by each wearing black but individually they picked dresses that were stunning for their body type and on trend.


Rihanna – I was expecting something more edgy and sexier from this fashion icon but her simple brown dress was an unexpected gem on the pink carpet.

Shawn Mendes – You can never go wrong with an all black suit. Never. Mendes looked classy and well put together in this look.

Keke Palmer – Va-va voom! This latex dress is edgy and hugs Palmer in all the right places. Her shoes added just enough pattern to spice up the look while her simple hairdo kept the attention on her dress.


Lucy Hale – Mixing textures and colors worked in Hale’s favor with this BBMA look. Adding simple shoes kept the focus on her bodysuit and skirt and prevented this look from being too busy.



Zendaya – She can do no wrong. This peach two-piece is EVERYTHING.


Worst Dressed:

Kesha – I like seeing women rock suits but the embroidery kills this look for me. I would have liked to see her in a simpler suit with the same skinny tie and color combo.


What's wrong with being "Confident?" 😏@ddlovato on the Magenta Carpet #BBMAs

A post shared by Billboard Music Awards (@bbmas) on

Demi Lovato – Between the leather gloves, plaid jacket, wide leg pants and sheer shirt, Lovato looks like a mess. She might want to look into hiring a new stylist because whoever put this look together isn’t doing her any favors.


The man, the myth, the legend, @iamstevent here at the #BBMAs carpet.

Steven Tyler – So many stripes….so ugly. Swap out the striped pants for solid black pants and maybe this look could have been salvaged.


Ladies & gentlemen the Princess of Pop is here! @britneyspears #BritneyOnBBMAs #BBMAs

A post shared by Billboard Music Awards (@bbmas) on

Britney Spears – Let me start by saying I love these shoes and was looking into getting a similar pair but I hate them with this look. The lack of a bottom to this look makes the shoes seem a bit awkward. I think if a bottom was added to this to make it a dress or even if Spears wore a skirt, I would have loved this look more.


#LauraMarano looking amazing as always #BBMAs

A post shared by Just Jared Jr. (@justjaredjr) on

Laura Marano- A faux nude dress with sequin stripes that clash with what looks like an Ed Hardy design….need I say more?


YES! YES! YES! 😍 @Meghan_Trainor killed it on the #BBMAs stage!

A post shared by Billboard Music Awards (@bbmas) on

Meghan Trainor – I’m all for sequin dresses but this one looks too busy with the change in color. I would have like to see her in one solid color or an ombre sequin dress instead.


@arianagrande #bbmas2016

A post shared by @style_m.o.d.e on

Ariana Grande – Another star with a dress that’s overly busy. The mix of thin lines with the thick blue stripes is too much for her tiny frame.


Our hurricane @iamhalsey

A post shared by XO (@we_are_xo) on

Hasley – Maybe it’s just me but between the double high slits, one thick strap and one thin, the cutouts and the crazy sequins this dress gives off the impression that the designer didn’t know which trend to stick to.


And….. @PeteWentz has arrived! #BBMAs

A post shared by Billboard Music Awards (@bbmas) on

Pete Wentz – I love Pete Wentz but this look is reminds me of Kanye West and it seems too low-key for an awards show.

What are your favorite looks from the 2016 BBMA’s? Which performance did you enjoy the most?
