The 2021 Billboard Music Awards kicked off with a plethora of our favorite stars showing off their very best red-carpet fashion moments, and because the Billboard Awards doesn’t necessarily have the same pomp and circumstance as other award shows, it gives celebs a chance to really show off their creative fashion senses without the high pressure of high Hollywood glam.
Regardless, this year, the girls (and guys) showed up and showed out, setting the tone for a historic night ahead and we’re already gushing over some of our favorite looks.
From Doja Cat to Saweetie, it’s definitely shaping up to be a stylish affair and we can’t wait to see who takes the crown as the night’s best dressed. Until then, check out the evening’s best fashion moments.
H.E.R. hit the red carpet at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards wearing a red sparkling Christian Dior pre-fall look. She rocked her signature black shades, hair in a sleeked low pony and black accessories to match.
Kehlani looked stunning in all-red. She wore a sparkly red bra, red pants, and a matching red poncho. The look was created by Tony Ward Couture from Fashion Week ’20.

The look included a black and white stripped crop top with dramatic sleeves and matching pants that dropped the floor. Styled by Bretta Lannelson, Doja wore her hair in two braided pigtails and a circular blue necklace to add a nice color contrast to the two-toned look.
For one of our favorite looks of the evening, rapper Saweetie looked pretty in peach in her Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown. The sleeveless and strapless dress looked radiant on the Top Rap Female Artist nominee which she paired with matching peach pumps. She let the dress speak for itself and wore her newly blonde locks in a simple, long ponytail with minimal jewelry.
