Spotted: Stars in Revealing Dresses at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

It’s the time of the year once again to honor the biggest names in the music industry. The 2013 Billboard Music Awards was a night of recognition and astounding performances from some great artists; aside from that, it turned out to be a night of glamour as celebrities dressed in fabulous ensembles on the blue carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 19.

Most of the outfits were sexy and revealing. You’d see the likes of Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, Kesha, and more in leg-baring dresses. Jennifer Morrison, Jennifer Lopez, and Kelly Rowland also showed off their cleavages. Check out the photos below, and tell us who got you stunned!

Selena Gomez in an Atelier Versace Spring 2013 Dress

Selena Gomez, who performed on stage and introduced Taylor Swift at the event, looked hot in white. In events like this, she never fails to capture attention. She revealed quite a lot in this sexy dress as it features illusion paneling in sheer mesh from the left collarbone down to the right hip as well as a thigh-high slit that surely put her leg on display. Toughness is also added to the sexiness of the dress via the zipper trimming at the bodice. Moreover, the neon piping (that reminds me of glow sticks) adds playfulness.

Do you like her sexy, playful look?

Taylor Swift in a Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2013 Dress

Bagging a total of 11 awards, Taylor Swift was definitely the big winner of the night. Although a long gown (just like what she wore last year) would be perfect as she goes up the stage to receive her awards, her Zuhair Murad frock was no less than beautiful. It was sparkling with sequins that are geometrically patterned to create an ultramodern, glamorous look. Sheer panels make the dress sexy as well, plus the short silhouette showed off her long legs.

Jennifer Lopez in a Zuhair Murad Spring 2013 Gown

Wherever she goes, she’s just always sexy! At the music awards, J.Lo didn’t fail to show hotness both on the blue carpet or on stage. When she arrived, she showed off her cleavage in a Zuhair Murad gown. This outfit is like a winner’s ensemble — I say Taylor Swift should’ve worn this instead. It was shining in gold sequins, and the bottom part is sheer (with some falling feather designs), showcasing her legs. I personally love this sexy, glamorous gilded look. How about you?

Kesha in a Givenchy Spring 2013 Tunic

Kesha’s fashion is, well, unique. At least that’s how good we can make it sound. Her outfit choices are undeniably one of a kind, and at the featured event, she chose to wear a Givenchy tunic. The front-view photos give the impression that she is 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 the sides reveal not a thigh-high but a hip-high slit! When she walks, you could almost see her behind!

On the runway, this Givenchy tunic was actually paired with a skirt. Obviously, Kesha opted not to wear the skirt for a very revealing look. What can you say?

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

Jennifer Morrison in a Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2013 Gown

The Once Upon a Time actress, Jennifer Morrison, was one of the presenters for the night, and perhaps we can also say she was one the night’s biggest surprises. The 34-year-old rocked a very revealing gown from Norwegian fashion designer Kristian Aadnevik’s fall 2013 collection. It was actually 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 perfect 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 celebs who graced the blue carpet in revealing outfits, Emmy managed to work a high-glamour look. Her keyhole-detailed gown is very trendy with see-through details and polka dot prints. The sheer parts showed off her skin in a very elegant way. This mermaid dress definitely wowed me!

Kelly Rowland in a Rami Al Ali Spring 2013 Couture Gown

When seen 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 more 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. This Halston Heritage gown, with its tiered bodice and simple straight skirt, perhaps looks a little boring for some. However, the backless design surely helped Hayden show a sexy, sophisticated look.

Chloe Moretz in a Fendi Spring 2013 Frock

16-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. Not contented, 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 was among those who embraced the metallic trend at the awards night. She presented the Artist of the Year award to Taylor Swift in an Atelier Versace dress, which falls just right below the knee. This is actually simple compared with what other attendees wore, but she 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 dress is actually pretty and edgy, but it looked unflattering on the Call Me Maybe songstress.

Nicki Minaj in a Red Gown

Nicki Minaj wore a stunning red gown when she arrived at the blue carpet event, where she took home three awards (Top Rap Artist, Top Streaming Artist, and Top Rap Album) out of seven nominations. She looked pretty girly in her outfit, which is unusual. Her bust was definitely accentuated in this dress, but I still love how “simple” she looked here compared with her previous outfit choices.
