Stars in Revealing Dresses at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Honoring the biggest names in the music industry, the 2013 Billboard Music Awards was a night of recognition and astounding performances from some great artists. It also turned out to be a night of glamour as celebrities attended the event yesterday in fabulous ensembles paraded on the blue carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Most of the outfits were sexy and revealing. There were Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, Kesha, and more in leg-baring dresses. Jennifer Morrison, Jennifer Lopez, and Kelly Rowland, on the other hand, took the opportunity to flash some cleavage. Who do you think was the best dressed?

Selena Gomez in an Atelier Versace Spring 2013 Dress

Selena Gomez, who performed on stage and introduced Taylor Swift, looked hot in white. She revealed quite a lot in this sexy number featuring illusion paneling in sheer mesh from the left collarbone down to the right hip as well as a thigh-high slit.

Taylor Swift in a Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2013 Dress

Bagging a total of 11 awards, Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night. Although a long gown (just like what she wore last year) would have been perfect when receiving the awards, her Zuhair Murad frock was no less beautiful. It sparkled with sequins that were geometrically patterned to create an ultramodern, glamorous look.

Jennifer Lopez in a Zuhair Murad Spring 2013 Gown

Wherever she goes, Jennifer Lopez always tends to show off her curves. At the music awards, J.Lo was oozing with sex appeal both on the blue carpet and on stage. She arrived in a cleavage-baring Zuhair Murad gown that looked like a winner’s outfit — Taylor Swift should’ve worn this instead. It features gold sequins and a sheer bottom (with a falling feather design) that showcased the performer’s legs.

Kesha in a Givenchy Spring 2013 Tunic

Kesha’s style is, well, unique. At least that’s how good we can make it sound. Her outfit choices are undeniably one of a kind. This time around, she chose to wear a Givenchy tunic. The front-view photos give the impression that she was wearing a simple LBD that features a turtle neck and some ruffles. The side views, however, will make you exclaim, “Kesha has done it again!” That’s because each side reveals not a thigh-high but a hip-high slit! When she walked, you could almost see her behind!

On the runway, this Givenchy tunic was paired with a skirt. However, Kesha opted to do without the skirt to show even more skin.

You can get this tunic from Farfetch. Hopefully, you’ll wear it with bottoms.

Jennifer Morrison in a Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2013 Gown

Once Upon a Time’s Jennifer Morrison was one of the award presenters and one of the night’s biggest surprises as well. The 34-year-old rocked a very revealing gown from Norwegian fashion designer Kristian Aadnevik’s fall 2013 collection. It’s like a lingerie corset ensemble with a laced-bra-like design, an embroidered belly, and a long sheer skirt that exposed her high-waist underpants. Sexy or too revealing? Was it a good choice for the event?

Emmy Rossum in a Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Gown

Emmy Rossum, along with Jason Derulo, presented the Top Billboard 200 Album award to Taylor Swift. The 26-year-old actress/singer/songwriter was elegant in her black gown. Unlike other celebrities who graced the blue carpet in revealing outfits, Emmy managed to work a high-glamour look. Her keyhole-detailed mermaid dress is very trendy with see-through panels and polka-dot prints. The sheer parts showed off her skin in a very elegant way.

Kelly Rowland in a Rami Al Ali Spring 2013 Couture Gown

From afar, Kelly Rowland would seem dressed in a bubble wrap. Looking closer, her wraparound gown, which features a thigh-high slit, was actually embossed with sparkling silver paillettes. It was too glitzy that she didn’t need to wear any other jewelry. She took this on stage to present the Dance Artist of the Year award, alongside Austin Mahone, to Madonna.

Hayden Panettiere in a Halston Heritage Spring 2013 Gown

Hayden Panettiere, who introduced Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, was fab and elegant in a black halter gown. Her Halston Heritage number, with its tiered bodice and simple straight skirt, would perhaps look a little boring for some. However, the backless design helped Hayden show a sexy, sophisticated look.

Chloe Moretz in a Fendi Spring 2013 Frock

Sixteen-year-old Chloe Moretz hit the blue carpet to introduce Ed Sheeran. She was in a cute, edgy, and age-appropriate frock from Fendi’s spring 2013 collection. The dress is striking due largely to the modern color-blocked geometric paneling. Chloe accessorized with a wide belt that was supposed to cinch the waist but seemingly failed.

Celine Dion in an Atelier Versace Spring 2013 Dress

Celine Dion embraced the metallic trend at the awards night. She presented the Artist of the Year award to Taylor Swift in an Atelier Versace dress that fell just right below her knees. This piece is simpler compared with what the other attendees wore, but the pop diva still stood out anyway.

Carly Rae Jepsen in a Dyanthe Fall 2012 Frock

Carly Rae Jepsen, who received eight nominations and won Top Digital Song and Top Pop Song, wore a black mesh dress with strategically placed panels to cover her private parts. The “Call Me Maybe” singer looked exciting and edgy in it.

Nicki Minaj in a Red Gown

Nicki Minaj, who took home three awards (Top Rap Artist, Top Streaming Artist, and Top Rap Album) out of seven nominations, surprised everyone when she arrived at the blue carpet event in a stunning red gown. Her bust was accentuated, as expected, but this was still a simpler and fresher look compared with the rapper’s previous outfit choices.
