Last Night’s Billboard Music Awards was a show not to be missed with excitement found at every corner. From Jennifer Lopez being the FIRST EVER female recipient of the Icon Award and Michael Jackson performing in hologram form, it certainly was a feast for the eyes. Something which was not so amazing however, was the fashion displayed on the night. Thankfully some of our starlets picked up the slack and these shall be shown below.
To kick things off we having the sibling duo who stole the show on the carpet: the up-and-coming Jenner sisters, Kendall and Kylie.
Both girls rocked it on the night in stunning ensembles with just the right amount of edge for the cool awards show. My best dressed gong has to go to Kendall though as she just knocked it out of the park! Dressed in sequined, leather pants, a white halter crop-top and some killer heels the now famous model looked every bit the part of a young beauty making her mark and looked ever so sultry whilst doing so.
Kylie was hot on her heels, however, in a figure-hugging white dress paired with some cool accessories (don’t know if I love or hate the shoes though)! What really made Kylie’s look pop for me was her collected, laid-back green hair, maintaining her own edge. The fading green tips added that extra oomph to her look and I commend her for sticking to it, especially as she is a young girl and now is the time for her to take major fashion risks!
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the next lady on my best dressed list is… Kesha! Kesha looked elegant and almost had a regal air to her in a sweetheart neck-lined, figure hugging, mermaid tailed gown. The grey dress with black lace overlay looked absolutely stunning on the singer, but the cherry on top had to be her absolutely flawless hair and make-up. Although the gown itself isn’t necessarily my favourite in the world, it has to be said that Kesha looks amazing compared to how she usually presents herself and I am glad to give her the credit she deserves.
Two other stars who looked lovely on the night, but who I don’t quite get the hype over are Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj. Both stars did look beautiful, but for me their outfits were just a tad too much on the boring side. Neither of the looks were in any way new or innovative with Jenny’s dress being typical of her throughout the decades and Nicki’s being far too reminiscent of the black gown that she wore recently to this year’s MTV Movie Awards! Have a look below and let me know what you think:
Finally, I’m going to add in one constructive criticism in this piece purely because I love her, namely; Iggy Azalea. Iggy is an amazing talent, but her style has always been either too sexy or lack luster and last night it proved to be the latter. The Australian rapper donned a gown similar to Jennifer Lopez’s, but it just did not hit the mark. What could have made the look so much better, however, and what could have perhaps even made it a best dressed, would have been if she cut off the damn sleeves! This would have completely transformed the red halter gown and paired with a high pony or some slicked back blonde locks would have turned the outfit from drab to fab in a heartbeat. Moral of the story: don’t be afraid to put your own twist on the designs Iggy!
So there you have it, my best dressed of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards with a few random bits thrown in!
