Steal the ‘blue carpet’ looks from the 2013 Billboard Music Awards show
Stars worked the red, err, blue carpet Sunday night for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards show in Las Vegas.
We spotted some of summer’s hottest trends: Neon, a white bodycon dress, sultry cut-outs … and that was all just on Selena Gomez’s award show ensemble.
We picked a few of our favorite looks from the awards show, and toned them down a little bit so that you can wear them for a summer’s night out and buy them at price that is more tailored to your budget.
Inspired by Selena Gomez: Or, as Tracy Morgan accidentally called her: “Celine.” The 20-year-old on-again, off-again girlfriend of Justin Bieber performed in a Bollywood-inspired gold gown with jewels on her head. But, the trend that caught our attention is the one she started the night in, a futuristic, body-hugging white dress with neon and gold accents. Find a white bodycon dress with side cut-outs from Bebe for just $69 and stacked neon macrame Vince Camuto bracelets from Nordstrom for $28 a piece.
Inspired by Taylor Swift: Before she changed into high-waisted black shorts and a, um, unicorn T-shirt to perform her single 22, T-Swift dazzled the blue carpet in a sparkly cobalt Zuhair Murad dress with Jimmy Choo shoes. We found a one-shoulder blue sequined dress from Dillards for just $99 and Tahari black, strappy pumps at DSW knocked down to $69.95. Swift was the night’s big winner, taking home Swift won eight awards. Her big wins: Top artist of the year and Red garnered her top Billboard 200 album.
Inspired by Hayden Panettiere: The Nashville star kept it classy in a Halston Heritage black halter dress with a ruffled bodice with her sandy blonde hair in sideswept, Hollywood-glam curls. She also carried a Jimmy Choo gold clutch. We drew elegant inspiration from White House Black Market and found a $300 strapless chiffon plumed gown in black and a gold Jessica McClintock clutch from Nordstrom.
