On the Red Carpet | 2012 Billboard Music Awards

Not quite the Oscars but nonetheless prestigious, the 2012 Billboard Music Awards that took place on May 20 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas requires special attires. Indeed the celebrities will be trading their very elegant ball gown and tuxedo for something more…hip and trendy! Read below and review with us the best dressed celebrities on the white carpet (yes, it was white this year!)

1. Oh Alicia! – Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys known for either hit or miss her red carpet looks, made heads turning at this year’s awards. Showing off every curve on her voluptuous body, she stepped on the white carpet in a black Azzedine Alaïa haute couture gown.  Her long-sleeve patterned dark-berry gown was accessorized with a selection of Repossi rose-gold hooped earrings and Jennifer Fisher rings as well as with Brian Atwood heels. MRD-tips: Siren shaped dresses look amazing on a mid-tall women (Alicia Keys 5 feet 6 inches) since it clearly shows the slight flare of the dress at the end. MRD loves Alicia’s braided updo and her candy-pink lip color.
2. Elegant and grown-up – Taylor Swift
MRD absolutely loves Taylor Swift’s grown-up style! The Women of the Year winner was stunning in her sheer red Elie Saab gown. The beautiful floor-sweeping dress with a lace-paneled top that showed off her womanly curves put the white carpet to the shame! MRD tips: Since this dress has many details and is very eye-catching by its color and mixed fabrics, we recommend adopting a less-is-more way to accessorizing.
3. Sparks all night long – Jordin Sparks
American Idol’s winner, Jordin Sparks none only made a strong impression on the white carpet but she also was stunning on stage! Sparks looked simple and elegant when she made her entrance at the MGM Grand Hotel in a nude lace Diane von Furstenberg mini dress dripping with David Yurman jewels.When the singer led the segment honoring Whitney Houston, she stepped out on stage in a Michelle Mason leather corset silk maxi dress. She looked chic and sophisticated in her black and royal blue gown. Her softly done makeup and pulled-back pony add a touch of elegance to her eye-catching style. MRD tips: A dress that features an edgy bustier will be highlighting by pulling back your hair whether they are lose or in a ponytail.
4. Jurnee Smollett
Actress Jurnee Smollet can always beautifully pull off colored outfit! Her curve-hugging gorgeous deep teal colored BCBGMAXAZRIA mini dress was paired with a BCBGMAXAZRIA clutch, statement necklace, and a pair of black peep-toe booties. MRD-tips: To emphasis a colored dress, we recommend wearing nude or neutral accessories and shoes.
