Red carpet: Billboard Music Awards

Ke$ha obeys the rule about not showing off cleavage and legs, but I'm not sure that high neck and those bib-sized ruffles make up for the fact that her side butt is visible for all the world to see in this Givenchy 'dress'. And you?
Celine Dion
Celine Dion's music makes me want to self-harm, but you have to admit she looks pretty amazing in this uncharacteristically classy metallic gold number.
Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj does her best to impersonate a Disney princess on the red carpet...
Nicki Minaj 2
... but blows her chances later on with some dance moves Cinderella never would have pulled.
Shania Twain
Man, I feel like a woman (who has come to an awards ceremony in a wedding dress). This Pavoni by Mikael D gown is not Shania Twain's finest moment, but she's worn plenty worse in her time.
Miley Cyrus wears a baroque harlequin-style Balmain jumpsuit, and, contrary to almost all of my style morals, I actually don't hate it. It's a music awards show, which is a licence to go a bit crazy, and Miley's only 20. So yeah, why not dress up in a giant crochet-sequined doily chequered flag hybrid that probably cost more than six months rent.
Taylor Swift can definitely rock a mini, she can definitely wear this blue, but why am I bored? The Zuhair Murad disco dress is definitely fun, but it's also a little dancing on ice.
Why are all the stars that are too young to have watched the original 90210 slapping on the makeup so much at the moment? While I appreciate the sort of glow-sticks running up your body fun of this Atelier Versace gown, her makeup's too heavy, the hair a touch messy and the dress, well, is it just tacky?
While there's no denying Jennifer Lopez looks amazing in this Zuhair Murad gown (she's forty-freaking-three), it feels a bit J-Lo five years ago? I'm also thinking the hair's a fail.
Jennifer Morrison's Kristian Aadnevik gown (well, let's be honest, it's some undies and netting) actually kind of works from the front. But from behind? Massive knicker-choice fail.

Ke$ha does her best to get the flashbulbs popping at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, while Taylor Swift bags the gold. Check out our red carpet gallery for more sartorial smash hits and straight-to-the-bargain-bin misses.
