Stars go Back to Black at the 2013 Billboard Awards

Taylor Swift at the 2013 Billboard Music AwardsWhen the location for an awards show is Las Vegas, you know that the attendees are going to go ALL out with their outfits for the red carpet (well, blue in this case). And for this year’s Billboard Awards, which is based on album charts, digital single sales and radio airplay in America, everyone from Selena Gomez through to Jennifer Lopez tried their best to stand out.

One theme that Prom noticed was the sheer amount of black at the awards – we know the LBD is a classic girls, but come on, it is meant to be Spring! A big fashion thumbs up must go to Selena Gomez, who looked beaut in a white maxi, complete with neon trims and a trendy slit, as well as Taylor Swift, who looked pop princess perfect in a sparkly purple mini with a snakeskin effect. A big fashion thumbs down to Carley Rae Jepson, whose sheer black dress looked like a Halloween costume gone wrong, as did her eye make up; conjunctivitis isn’t a good look, Carley.

However, the major fashion fail of the night must go to Ke$ha, who decided to turn up in a ripped dress – she looked more caveman than prom queen in our books! Remember girls, classy is better than trashy.
