Glitter and glamour ruled the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards…

One of the largest events in the music industry took place in Las Vegas overnight and there was no shortage of style on the red carpet. At the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, the industry’s stars made bold statements in sequined dresses and feminine silhouettes.

From designer jumpsuits to an abundance of ruffles on the red carpet, the looks were turning heads from every corner of the fashion world.

See who wore what on the red carpet…

Ciara in Stephane Rolland, Eva Longoria in Alberta Ferretti, Julia Michaels in Paolo Sebastian

In typical red carpet uniform, the LBD’s – or in this case, full black gowns, ruled the red carpet. Ciara opted for an embellished deep v-neck cut and sculptural shoulder gown by Stéphane Rolland, whilst Eva Longoria dazzled in an Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition strapless short dress. Julia Michaels turned up in style wearing a Paolo Sebastian ensemble with Hearts on Fire jewellery.

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner was spotted on site to support husband Joe Jonas (they secretly got married right after the awards ceremony), in a metallic Louis Vuitton jumpsuit as her now, sister-in-law, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas opted for a sparkling creation by Zuhair Murad Couture. In line with the sequinned trend, Olivia Wilde wore an embellished gold lamé Ralph Lauren dress buttoned to the top of her neckline.
