Fashion moments on the red carpet of the Billboard Music Awards

By Chicago 1 Min Read


The stars weren’t exactly out in force at last night’s Billboard Music Awards, which were held at several live venues across California. Instead, the occasion was a disparate affair with stars appearing remotely from “global locations, in the midst of sold-out tours and in customized locations,” organizers said.

Fans on social media weren’t too happy with the new format, but that didn’t stop singers Mariah Carey, Karol G and Bebe Rexha from performing on the various black carpets.

Carey was ready to reprise her role as “Queen of Christmas” in a crystal-trimmed pleated white minidress with faux fur-lined sleeves, a nod to her outfit in her 1994 hit single “All I want for Christmas is you,” also bringing a bit of ’60s glam with oversized oval sunglasses and thigh-high boots.

Colombian singer-songwriter Karol G rocked a sheer beige latex two-piece, her muscular reddish-brown accents along with the star’s wet-look hairstyle giving her a fresh-out-of-the-shower feel. Meanwhile, singer Bebe Rexha looked out of this world in a silver and metallic bustier with a side train and mermaid skirt, sheer black gloves and a sparkling necklace.
