Nicki Minaj Billboard Music Awards

Throughout tonight's Billboard Awards, we saw tons of stars bringing their sartorial A-game to both the red carpet and the stage, but no one donned two totally opposite (but equally amazing) looks quite like Nicki Minaj. When she walked the carpet, she sported a soft and elegant floor-sweeping crimson gown with sequin detailing along the bustier. She finished the look with sky-high red platform shoes and matching nails on both her hands and feet. #dedication For her beauty game, she opted for platinum ringlets, extra thick lashes and nude lips for an-understated-yet-still-red-carpet-ready look.

By now you might've peeped all the killer 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet looks, but, HOMG, y'all, we need to talk about the performance outfits. We're straight-up astounded by all the sartorial realness we've seen onstage tonight, particularly from the likes of Ms. Jennifer Lopez. She BA-ROUGHT it in a fiery head-to-toe red ensemble while singing "Live It Up" alongside Pitbull. She sported The Blonds sequin red leotard with out-of-this-world feather sleeves and matching thigh-high studded peep-toe boots. For her beauty look, JLo wore straight dark blonde strands with piecey bangs, a smokey eye and nude lip. Halfway through her performance, though, we couldn't help but think her ensemble reminded us SO much of something we had seen before...

Justin Bieber

It should probably come as no surprise that Justin Bieber wore leather to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. In fact, weeee can't really recall a time in the recent past when Biebs hasn't performed in SOME iteration of the luxe material. And sure, he's even been known to rep head-to-toe leather on occasion, but we're shining a major spotlight on The Biebs and his love of tanned hide NOW because that's pretty much ALL he wore tonight. He skipped the red carpet, but his grand entrance for a "Bieber Air"-themed performance of "Take You" was dripping with leather from his custom one-armed jacket to his extra tight drop-crotch trousers. We had barely stopped reeling from his mirrored Top Gun shades when Biebs returned to the stage to accept an award in ANOTHER all-leather look—this one a slightly unbuttoned baseball jersey and slightly baggier drop-crotch pants.

Taylor Swift may not actually be 22 anymore, but she's become the official ambassador of that oh-so-very fun and confusing early 20's age with her song of the same name. Tay performed "22" at the 2013 Billboard Awards tonight, and while we thought at first that she was wearing the tap shorts and tee that have become her go-to performance look as of late, our eagle eyes quickly realized that Taylor wasn't just looking like a cutie in her on-stage look. No, she was telling us something. Her bright blue baby-t, which she wore tight and tucked into her nautical shorts, featured a picture of a sparkly unicorn with a thought bubble. What do you think rainbow bright is thinking while adorning Swifty's tee? If you thought "HATERS GONNA HATE," and let's be real, you didn't, you would be right. "HATERS GONNA HATE," you guys! Any joke you could have made about Tay or her performance, well, failed, because she sees you.

Selena Gomez

Talk about a change of pace! Earlier tonight, Selena Gomez hit the 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet in bright, neon, summery Atelier Versace—a vision of '90s raver steez updated for the step-and-repeat. For her performance, though, Selly opted for warm metallics and over-the-top glamour, swaddling herself in all-gold-everything from the tippy-top of her fashion bindi to the hem of her shimmering double-slit curtain skirt. Gomez performed her hit single "Come And Get It" in an ensemble we're affectionately referring to as "Bollywood meets that one Princess Leia outfit courtesy of Jabba The Hut *WINK*, also Barbarella"—point being, girl looked HOTT (two Ts very necessary).

Taylor Swift at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

Taylor Swift has always been one of the most consistent style stars on the red carpet, taking an "if it ain't broke, why fix it?" approach to event dressing. There's nothing wrong with that, but that just means it's an even huger deal than usual when the singer strays away from her go-to look. And at tonight's Billboard Music Awards, Taylor decided to go against both her trademark color palette (red, white, silver, gold) AND her signature silhouettes (long gown, princess frock), showing off a side we rarely get to see. Perhaps coordinating with the blue carpet, Tay sported a sparkly blue minidress by Zuhair Murad with sheer panels at the top. Paired with stappy black heels and working major leg, is this Taylor putting her own spin on the Las Vegas locale?! We're betting yes.

Ke$ha wears Givenchy at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

You really never know with Ke$ha. Will she go all out with glitter, crazy talons, and insane makeup on the red carpet, or will she take things in the opposite direction and wear something more classically glamorous. For her turn on the 2013 Billboard Music Awards carpet (which, incidentally, is blue and not red), Ke$ha decided to go with a little bit from column A, a little bit from column B in a daring, ultra-mini Givenchy LBD. With a high neckline and modern, sculptural ruffles down the front, the dress looks at first like it might be may closer to 'nun' than 'naughty,' but then Ke$ha turns to the side and BAM!, you see that the dress has a slit almost all the way up to her hip. Is side-butt the new side-boob? Daring, indeed.

Happy Sunday, y'all! You know it's a good weekend when you can cap it off snuggling up at home for hours upon hours of awards show antics. Tonight, we're settling in for a landslide of summer red carpet steez and performance outfits as the 2013 Billboard Music Awards get underway. The show itself doesn't start until 8 p.m. EST, but the red blue carpet is already heating up as our girl Selena Gomez has just hit the step-and-repeat. It's an earlier-than-usual entrance for Selly, but that's because she's also performing tonight.

Miley Cyrus at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards are off and running, and who better to kick off the night than Miss Miley Ray Cyrus? Even before the singer hit the red— er, blue— carpet in Las Vegas tonight, she tweeted out this photo working the camera in a black and white crochet Balmain jumpsuit. Now, we're already well aware of how much this star LOVES both formal and informal onesies, but haven't seen her in a knitted version of the comfy staple...well, until now. Fresh off the French label's Spring 2013 runway, this intricately-woven piece comes covered in diamonds and teeny tiny cutouts. The result is simultaneously boundary-pushing, effortlessly chic, and 100% Miley.

Ke$ha

Ke$ha's self-described '70s-inspired look from last night's MTV Movie Awards might still be very fresh in your brain, but tear yourself away from that ensemble for a second, because we've got another equally awesome outfit from the pop star that's also worth discussing. Just a mere 24 hours before she hit the Movie Awards red carpet in bell bottoms and a floppy hat, the singer attended the Logo NewNowNext Awards appearing, well, kind of the opposite in a pale blue short-sleeved dress. Anyone else getting major retro glam vibes from her look? "Stepford Ke$ha" meets Brigitte Bardot, indeed.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
