Best and Worst Dressed at the BBMA’s

Last night’s 2013 Billboard Music Awards didn’t disappoint in terms of fashion and as expected, there were great big hits and major misses.  Who made your lists?

Best Dressed #1 – Jennifer Lopez

J. Lo at the Billboard Music Awards

J. Lo has been rocking Zuhair Murad at nearly all of her recent red carpet events and why wouldn’t she?  She’s found a good thing, why bother changing it?  With a gown dripping in gold and a deep plunging neckline, she smartly kept her accessories to a minimal.  No one can do a nude lip and smokey eye like Jennifer Lopez and her face, once again, looks flawless.  Her hair is fine, although I kind of want to scrunch the roots a little….I love when her hair has some body!

Best Dressed #2: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is proof that a breakup can do a girl good!  The neon accents on the Atelier Versace gown are on-point and the peek-a-boo swoosh shows enough skin without overdoing it.  However, I’m not really feelin’ her silver Jimmy Choo shoes and would have loved to see her donning these Sergio Rossi All Over Strass Pumps instead.  That said, the messy pony and cat eyes are absolute perfection!

Best Dressed #3: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

Gomez's BFF and country crooner Taylor Swift easily pulls off the short hemline on this blue sequin Zuhair Murad, balancing it with long sleeves.  Gomez and Swift must have done their shoe shopping together because I’m not a fan of her sandals either.  They feel too heavy for the ensemble.  I found another pair of Sergio Rossi’s, the Sergio Rossi Strass T-Strap Sandals that are just as glam without the weighty platform.

Worst Dressed #1: Z LaLa

Z LaLa

First off, I’m not even sure who this Z LaLa person is.  Seriously.  I had to Google her.  Second off, I don’t care if you’re Z LaLa or Lady Gaga or Nikki Minaj.  When you wear a costume down a red carpet, all I think is, “what is this poor girl hiding from?”  I can tolerate costumes on Halloween and even during performances, but when your real life is cause to don a costume, it just makes me sad for you.

Worst Dressed #2: Nayer


When the best looking thing on the red carpet is your dog, well Nayer, you may need a new stylist.  And actually, why exactly did you bring your dog?  I’m an animal person and am certain that the poor thing didn’t want to be there.  I don’t really even have to say anything about the outfit…we all know a hot mess when we see it.

Worst Dressed #3: Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

I’ve actually really enjoyed watching Miley Cyrus come into her own in the fashion world.  She’s taken some risks that have paid off.  Sadly, this crocheted harlequin patterned Balmain onesie isn’t one of them.  Fortunately for her there were the above two fashion-tragedies or she would have taken home the dis-honor of Worst Dressed at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards!
