This is a fashion post with some of the people at last night’s Billboard Music Awards. You can see the complete list of winners here and Kaiser has more coverage this morning as well. First we have Kiernan Shipka in a bizarre Dior dress featuring a sheer top with satin stripes and a bell skirt with a red chevron pattern. It’s cute and young-looking. I would like it better if the top wasn’t see-through, but at least it has a nude underlay at the bust for privacy. You can even see the bottom part of the top through the skirt. As Red Carpet Fashion Awards points out, Kiernan’s makeup artist instagrammed all the makeup she used for this look.
Jennifer Hudson had on a crazy brown Area suit with sequin fringe. I don’t think I’ve ever seen sequin tassels on a suit before, so at least it’s unique. I don’t really like the diamond pattern on the shoulders but maybe it would work if the suit was a better color. I like how she’s twirling around and making the sequins fly, that looks fun. Jennifer presented the Icon Award to Mariah carey.
Eva Longoria looked a bit severe in a black very high cut Alberta Ferretti gown with a gathered fan-like detail at the bodice and a short split skirt. Her makeup artist went too heavy on her eyes and her legs and arms are very sparkly and orange. This look might be ok with softer styling. I’m glad to see her back on red carpets. Have you seen her baby recently? He’s adorable!
Olivia Wilde was amazing in a gold Ralph Lauren shirtdress with a black belt. The original look had a cape (which you can see in her Instagram post) but she took it off for the red carpet. My one complaint is that maybe she shouldn’t have gone with matchy platform shoes.
