AceShowbiz - The 2019 Billboard Music Awards kicked off on Wednesday evening, May 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. In addition to bringing out the best musicians in the world, the big music event saw the world stars showing off their high fashion while gracing the red carpet.
One of the stars who turned heads with their looks that night was Taylor Swift. The "Look What You Made Me Do" singer, who was set to open the annual award-giving event with her debut TV performance of "ME!" alongside Panic at the Disco's Brendon Urie, looked extremely delicate in a ruffling lilac look with a high collar and sheer, lace sleeves.
She put a leggy look as she donned a short micro-pleated frock by designer Raisa Vanessa. She completed her look with shimmering stilettos in a soft pastel hue while styling her blonde locks in a low bun.
As for Halsey, the "Without Me" songstress set pulses racing in a sexy gown which offered an eyeful of her cleavage. The blue dress had a black lace accent in some parts and featured a high slit. Teaming up the look with a purple lipcolor, Halsey further stunned everyone in a pair of black high heels.
Cardi B, meanwhile, channeled her inner Indian princess as she arrived in an ab-baring two-piece yellow gown. The Bronx rapper, who let her raven hair fall down her shoulders, added glam to her style with diamonds encrusted on the neckline of the dress as well as the top. Joining her at the event was husband Offset, with whom she turned their red carpet appearance racy by doing some PDAs.
It was a big night for Cardi as she led the pack in nominations at the Billboard Music Awards with 21 total across 18 categories.
Ciara made the red carpet a family affair. Opting a black gown with a huge ribbon on one of her shoulders, the wife of Russell Wilson, brought her son Future Zahir Wilburn along with her. The 4-year-old looked equally stylist in a yellow-and-black outfit and a pair of sunglasses.
Jonas Brothers ditched plain suits for the night. Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas looked dapper in pinstripe suits, with Joe in blue and Kevin in beige. Meanwhile, Nick Jonas joined them in a plaid one. Host Kelly Clarkson, on the other hand, was literally sparkling on the red carpet she wore a black sequin dress.
Yung Miami's red carpet fashion was bold as she slipped in bright lime green ruffle dress. South Korean boyband BTS (Bangtan Boys) also looked totally handsome in black suits. Band member Suga, however, set himself apart in a black suit with white polkadots. Meanwhile, V opted for a patterned grey-ish outfit for the event.
