The metallic dress is always a staple at any red carpet event. Someone’s bound to show up wearing something shiny. The 2016 Billboard Music Awards was not an exception. The event itself called for some dramatic shimmer and shine, so it wasn’t surprising to see both Celine Dion and Ciara wearing metallic all-over.

The 48-year-old siren didn’t look one bit her age in this Grecian-inspired, sequin metallic number. The one-shouldered dress featured side knot detailing that gave it a classy appeal. Celine partnered the dress with a pair of gold metallic pumps.
Ciara at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 23, 2016
The 30-year-old showed off her lean figure in this Philipp Plein Spring 2016 side-plunging dress. The sultry gown was sexy and showed off quite a bit of skin. She accessorized with Casadei ‘Blade’ sandals, a Jacob & Co. “Inside & Out” ring and Jacob & Co. “9 Band” ring set.
