best and worst dressed bbmas billboard awards

The Billboard Awards are one of the biggest music awards of the year—second only to the Grammys—and the red carpet often sees some weird and wacky outfit choices. This IS music after all...

Here are our best and worst dressed from this year's event, which is currently wrapping up over in the US. Tune in to see Kesha's emotional tribute to Bob Dylan—her first appearance since the much-publicised court case with producer Dr Luke—as well as Madonna's tribute to Prince, and performances from Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber.

Best Dressed


Rhi Rhi don't GAF about what you think. She rolled out of bed, applied some BB cream, and threw on her mum's 80s stockbroker blazer.

Kate Beckinsale

Becks is probably wayyyy overdressed for the Billboard Awards, but whatevs, she looks chic AF.


Each and every time. This peach ensemble is super cute and laid back whilst still screaming #kween.

Meghan Trainor

Slay, our Billboard queen of bootay and sequins.


Oh look, Ciara's wearing a naked dress again. A++.


For once I'd like to say Madge is dressed entirely appropriately. Here she is paying tribute to The Purple One in fine, bedazzled form.

Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Mila Kunis

100% would go to a chic house party hosted by these three. Can we be best friends yet?

Worst Dressed 

Ariana Grande

Funnily enough, this was my exact face when I saw this dress.


Is Seal wearing yellow crocs? That's no way to win her back, man.


The perfect outfit to attend a Carnivale masquerade party with Donatella Versace in Milan circa 1985.

Pete Wentz

Wait... Is Pete Wentz still a thing?

Demi Lovato

Let's all just block these fingerless leather gloves out of our memory now, shall we? And with the purple nails showing through, ugggggh.


Poor Kesha, she's been through so much lately—and now her stylist puts her in this Texan Mariachi monstrosity?

Steven Tyler

Johnny Depp, you gotta lay off the drugs, man.

Jessica Alba

"I'm not a regular mum, I'm a cool mum."

And Now Here's Something We Can All Enjoy

Britney Spears

If you haven't already witnessed the internet sensation that is Britney-posing-awkwardly-beside-fans, here's our Billboard Music Edition of Britney-posing-awkwardly-for-photographers-in-underwear-and-cage-boots.
