1. 2014 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet


The 2014 Billboard Music Awards invaded the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, bringing out major celebs like: Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Lopez and more.

Our favorite musicians graced the red carpet in their finest threads and highest heels. While some stars looked fab, others looked fug. Check out the best & worst dressed celebs at the awards…

2. Nicki Minaj in Alexander McQueen


It looks like this was no publicity stunt. The once overly pink and boisterous character has been replaced with a new restrained and refined Nicki. We’re here for it. Aside from the creeping side boob, this gown is perfect, chic, and on-trend.

3. Kelly Rowland


Very few can pull this off without a wardrobe malfunction, but the newly married songstress stunned the red carpet taking the crop top trend to a new height.

4. Kelly Rowland

Gold accessories, a blue smokey eye and nude lips rounded out her sexy look.

5. Jennifer Lopez in Donna Karan


J Lo basically wore a swimsuit with a sheer cape to the red carpets. But we’re here for this!

6. Jordin Sparks in Michael Costello


Just in case you weren’t aware, Michael Costello is the designer to watch out for. We predict that new red carpet season will be flooded with his work! (Wait, did Jordin loose more weight)

7. Chrissy Teigen in Fyodor Golan


Chrissy choose a very intricate design that resembled peacock feathers and pigeon droppings…(insert blank stare) we think she got gipped, the design wasn’t finished. Or wait, this is avant garde right?

8. Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

But her arm piece could not have been more dapper.

9. Chrissy Teigen

Can we talk about her new bangs though? #ADORE

10. Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose in Saint Laurent


We’re not sure what to think of Amber’s look? We kinda miss those curve-hugging gowns we’re use to seeing!

11. Amber Rose

Robocop shades and all, we still love you Amber (and Baby Bash)!

12. Rocsi Diaz in Cushnie et Ochs


It’s safe to say that the cut out trend is a thing, huh! Similar to Jordin’s look for the evening, Rocsi choose a fitting halter dress showing her best assets.

13. Shakira in Julien Macdonald


Those hips still aren’t lying! A perfect patterned sheer paneling for her amazing body. For a dramatic stance her stylist passed on the accessories.

14. Ludacris


Could Luda have been the best host ever? We think it’s clear that he will be asked to do that again!

15. 2 Chainz


All white everything!

16. Kendall Jenner in Olcay Gulsen


The TV reality star turned model is making quite a fabulous name for herself via the red carpet. I’m sure Kimmy Kakes is proud of her little sis.

17. Kylie Jenner


She was clearly the other half of the buzz for evening!

18. Iggy Azalea in Zuhair Murad


The NKOTB is officially on our most improved list. Since her debut the rapper has had some hiccups but she’s either hired a new stylist or…hired a new stylist!

19. Estelle in Izmaylova


Known for wearing up and coming designers, Estelle rocks another indie design on the red carpet. This one we cannot get with.

20. Carrie Underwood in Oriett Domenech


Neon anything is the color of the season, and Carrie wows us in this floor-length embellished gown.
