The major fashion statements didn’t stop on the blue carpet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. When the rug was rolled up, musicians took to the stage and their breathtaking (for both good and bad reasons) outfits. Check out The Hook’s Gregory DelliCarpini Jr’s 10 picks for the best and worst dressed from the show.
BEST: Celine lands on the best dressed list for rocking this gold metallic fitted dress, complete with a plunging neckline. She presented the award for Top Artist of the Year to Taylor Swift.
BEST: Christina Aguilera flashed her new slender body in a black long-sleeved Versace top complete with gold fringe, a Herve Leger skirt and Christian Louboutin heels as she shared the stage with Pitbull for their song "Feel This Moment."
WORST: What do you get if you cross a red Muppet with a Vegas showgirl in the dead of winter? Jennifer Lopez performing "Live It Up" on stage at the BBMA’s. The singer sported a fiery red look complete with thigh-high boots and sequin red leotard with feather sleeves by The Blonds.
BEST: Justin Bieber hit the stage dipped in leather performing hit track "Take You." His rebel look was completed with a custom one-armed biker jacket, baggy drop-crotch leather pants and a pair of aviators.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
WORST: The Seattle duo performed their mega hit “Thrift Shop” in their signature frugal chic way. Although not our taste, we give this duo props for staying true to what they preach.
BEST: As usual, Madonna stole the show in a fishnet body stocking, garter belt, fur-trimmed jacket and sky-high heels. The Queen of Pop posed backstage with her three awards—Top Dance Album, Top Touring Artist and Top Dance Artist.
BEST: Nicki Minaj bumped and grinded on Lil’ Wayne in a pair of raunchy torn tights, a black crop top and a baseball cap as she performed their song “High School.”
BEST: Prince rocked a psychedelic and retro look rocking a green turtleneck paired with matching lime green flared trousers, a black jacket and round sunglasses.
BEST: Selena Gomez wore a futuristic gold ensemble complete with a sexy gold corset, a matching long skirt and a fashion bindi.
WORST: Just when we thought Taylor Swift was all grown up she stepped out onstage in a blue sparkly unicorn printed t-shirt, glittering nautical shorts and colorful sneakers.
