Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet

bbma awardsThis years key trend at the Billboard Music Awards hosted in Las Vegas was definitely to opt out on a dress and instead wear some of the most fab trouser suits, jumpsuits and playsuits designed by top names such as Balmain, Elie Saab and Fausto Puglisi. As seen in the image above, A-listers such as the beautiful Chrissy Teigen had fun with their red carpet fashion by wearing retro styles with the sexy plunging neckline, 70’s retro stripe print and flared leg. Both Stefani Scott and Zandaya went for trouser suits/ co-ords with girly crop tops in bold prints, while Stefani looked quirky and awesome in high waisted red trousers and rose print bralet, Zandaya showed off her amazing figure in legging style trousers in a black and white animal print. However my favourite looks came from 3 celebs in particular and these I will run through below.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift the ‘Bad Blood’ star absolutely stunned in this awesome Balmain, cut out, sparkle, flared jumpsuit. Although it was such a simple look, it was definitely one of my favourite red carpet looks the star has gone for and showed off her girly and fun side with a huge splash of glitter glamour.

Olivia Culpo

Olivia Culpo

Beauty Queen Olivia Culpo went for something a little different to everyone else which I really loved and unlike some looks you love on the red carpet but couldn’t wear yourself, this Elie Saab black sparkle playsuit would be so great even for a night out on the town. Her slicked back and dead straight hair really added to this downplayed and chic look and it was all about the little shiny details, with jeweled heels and big jeweled earrings.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenners look was obviously going to be great as she was wearing Balmain (an obvious winner on the red carpet this year!), but what was most exciting about this look was that it will soon be available to H&M shoppers! Yes! This is Balmain x H&M, the high street brand is collaborating with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing to bring some amazing pieces to selected stores so watch out for this beautifully detailed velvet cross over jacket, which will definitely be on my shopping list!

Perks of Playsuits

Perks of Playsuits
Playsuits are so brilliant for summer, they can be dressed up and dressed down and the variety of colors, shapes, designs and patterns you can get help you make the trend adaptable. The reverse Paulina playsuit is more of a formal look, however it’d look so brill at any summer cocktail party or simply for an evening drink. The gorgeous blends of colours in the flowers contrast perfectly to the peachy colour of the playsuit. I have chosen to use a vibrant colour of yellow to brighten the outfit further and matched both the handbag and shoes so there is not a huge clash of garishness (if that’s a word!). The pretty and simple wrap ring is cute but can be replaced with any gold jewelry of your choice. The second outfit is more casual and could be seen at any festival, the festival of my choice being Bestival! The white H&M playsuit is so simple that it doesn’t look over the top but also isn’t dull. I wanted to put some black hightop Nike’s with the outfit to make it more cool, casual and comfy for jumping around to live bands and the black leather backpack is a brilliant match with the shoes and also very sensible for keeping your stuff in! 🙂
