Red Carpet Report: 2012 Billboard Music Awards

          The 2012 Billboard Music Awards was kicked off by an electrifying LMFAO performance.  They showed off their sexy moves in a medley of their hits "Party Rock Anthem", "Sorry for the Party Rocking" and "I'm Sexy and I Know It."  Sky Blu and Red Foo's barely-there outfits are what celebrities usually strut at music awards, but we were happily surprised to find very stylish and glamourous outfits on the red carpet.  The NET A LA MODE team made a list of the 10 best dressed celebrities at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.

#10 Jordin Sparks

        Jordin Sparks looked fresh and young in her nude Diane Von Furstenberg dress.  The "Zarita" floral dress had a scalloped trim and three-quarter sleeves.  To bring this look from casual to red-carpet-glam, Jordin accessorized with David Yurman jewelry and black Diane Von Furstenberg T-bar heels.    

#9 Carly Rae Jepsen

         Carly Rae Jepsen, singer of that song that always gets stuck in your head "Call me Maybe", wore a floor-length neutral gown with Jacob & Co. ring and studs.  A lot of fans were surprised to see the 26 year-old dress her age but she quickly changed into her usual eclectic attires to host the Billboard Music Award after-party with The Wanted.  

#8 The Wanted

     British boy band The Wanted looked quite dapper in their suits.  We must admit that we are jealous that this generation of teens have this british invasion to lust over while all we had was 'N sync.  They even impressed Tommy Hilfiger that night, who promised to send them some clothes.

#7 Alicia Keys

          Alicia Keys showed off her curves in this dark-berry figure-hugging Azzedine Alaia Couture gown.  Long-sleeve gowns are popping up everywhere, as we saw at the MET Gala.  Alicia enhanced her look with Repossi rose-gold hooped earrings and Jennifer Fisher rings. 

#6 Usher

       Usher rocked the red carpet with a daring baby blue suit.  He performed his new single "Scream" on stage with 20 dancers and he indeed made his fans scream!

#5 Zooey Deschanel

         "New Girl", Zooey Deschanel brought 60's glam to the red carpet with her silver embellished sleeveless cocktail dress with contrast cream trim from Moschino's Fall 2012 collection and her beehive hair style. She accessorized with her signature black tights, horn-shaped dangling earrings and Miu Miu black pumps. She then tied up the whole mod look with orange lipstick.

#4 Julianne Hough

         Julianne Hough sparkled in a sequined Kaufman Franco cocktail dress and accessorized with Nicholas Kirkwood shoes and H. Stern jewelries.  Her look was simple but glamourous.

#3 Carrie Underwood

       Carrie Underwood went big in this silver-and-rose tulle draped gown from Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2012 collection.  Her frothy gown was accessorized with a pearl-and-crystal sapphire ‘Cara’ vanity case and silver paillette open-toe heels.

#2 Katy Perry

       Katy Perry channelled the "Little Mermaid" in an iced-out metallic lilac drop-waist gown featuring a bodice covered with iridescent sequins that cascades down to a lightly embellished chiffon skirt from Blumarine's Fall 2012 collection.   The purple hair that she had premiered at Coachella actually works with this dress.  Her out-there outfits usually don't work for us but tongiht she managed to pull off an uncharacteristically elegant look (maybe because her date was her grandmother).  

#1 Taylor Swift

       Taylor Swift looked amazing in a red chiffon sleeveless gown with a lace bodice from Elie Saab's Pre-Fall 2012 Collection.  We all know how Taylor Swift has a fascination with fairy tales and how she loves to dress up as a princess but we must say that we love that she embraced the evil queen in her with this darker and sexier look.

           Even with all the fashion on the red carpet, the highlight of the night was Katy Perry's premier performance of her single "Wide Awake", in which she flew onto the stage from above in an over-the-top dreamy gown.  We'll sure be dreaming of fashion all night after this spectacular event!
