Billboard Awards 2012: Taylor Swift In Elie Saab

Who: Singer Taylor Swift

Where: At the Billboard Awards 2012 held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas

Wearing: A sleeveless red chiffon Elie Saab gown with a lace bodice from the pre-fall 2012 collection, paired with Neil Lane jewellery

Verdict: Music awards always brings out some interesting fashion choices, there was a Cinderella moment for Carrie Underwood in Oscar de la Renta, a match your dress to your hair moment again from Katy Perry in Blumarine, and even a bizarre Jean Paul Gaultier tuxedo dress that Miley Cryus wore that just look three sizes too big.

I have to say thank god for Elie Saab as otherwise I don’t think I would have bothered covering the awards. Normally I not a fan of Taylor Swift’s red carpet looks, generally there’s too many sparkles, but this gown has an elegance about it that I truly love, I just wish she would have worked the one seen on the runway which had a thigh-high split.

I also think I am a fan of her sleek straight hair, I love curls, but her straight hair is nearly a carbon-copy to the runway model and works better with the dress.

Are you a fan of this red Elie Saab gown?

Billboard Awards: Fergie Wears Hervé Léger by Max Azria

Who: Fergie

Where: At the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas

Wearing: A black custom Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress paired with an Alexander McQueen classic skull box fringe clutch from the spring/summer 2011 collection and Christian Louboutin platforms

Verdict: I love how Fergie can pull off an outfit like this and look fantastic. The gold harness detailing over the dress is exquisite, but for me it has to be the volume effect around the hips, it has a futuristic vibe that Fergie always looks great in. I am also loving the styling with the dress, the McQueen clutch is divine, the heels perfection and the smoky eye – I just love this look from head-to-toe.

Billboard Awards: Rihanna Rocks Max Azria

Who: Rihanna

Where: At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas

Wearing: A custom-made Max Azria white suit, with a sheer white shirt with deep plunge, teamed with nude Christian Louboutin

Verdict: Rihanna is the master of disguise for me, I wouldn’t have thought that she would have worked this look for an awards ceremony, she looks really chic-yet-still-sexy. I have to admit I am not always a fan of what Rihanna wears but she certainly keeps me guessing.

I also loved how Rihanna opened the show with Britney Spears to perform the remixed version of S&M. I loved both of their provocative outfits designed by Norma Kamali, which totally works with this sexy tune.
