A leaked memo from CBS asking stars to cover up during the Grammys made news back in February, here are some highlights...

"Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered... Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible "puffy" bare skin exposure."

Puffy skin? The mind boggles.

Anyway, last night's Billboard Music Awards clearly sent out no such advice, as many stars went 'less is more' when it came to material.

Madonna wore a near-identical look to her Met Gala 'punk' outfit, wearing a jacket and basically nothing else. The look was custom-designed for her by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci (he who was responsible for Kim K looking like a couch at the Met Gala. Boy needs a talking to). One thing's for sure, Madge is clearly really trying to make fishnets in your fifties fetch, and, well, if anyone can do it, she can. 

Meanwhile, always-wacky Ke$ha opted for side bum (rather than the more traditional side boob) in a Givenchy number and gorgeous House star Jennifer Morrison obviously forgot to check out how her Kristian Aadnevik 'gown' looked from behind.

While R&B star Nayer (a regular vocalist on Pitbull tracks) brought along her dog Prince Einstein as a date, but made sure all eyes were on her thanks to what looked like a hoodie that had been attacked by scissors in very strategic areas (is that puffy skin we see?). 

See all the red carpet looks (including JLo's daring gown and Swift's sequined mini) here.
