More than one musician mentioned on Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards black carpet that they were thrilled to be out of the house and at an event, and that showed in their style choices as well, with many presenters and nominees choosing colorful looks that felt downright celebratory.
Pink and red were the hot colors of the night — starting with Pink herself in her own Alexander McQueen dress, as well as Alicia Keys in custom Valentino and Kehlani in Tony Ward Couture to Saweetie in a Giambattista Valli haute-couture high-low gown that quickly gained buzz on Instagram and Twitter. Metallic gold — notably Gabby Barrett in a gold lamé dress by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran and Renee Elise Goldsberry in a metallic one-shoulder dress by Dundas — also were among the night’s highlights.
