Last night’s Billboard Music Awards 2013 show brought a high dose of glam and many inspirational looks. The Billboard Awards 2013 celebrity style choices, on the blue carpet this time, were absolutely stunning as a whole, but there were definitely some A-listers that set the tone for the night, drawing all the spotlight on them. Here are some of the most attention-grabbing Billboard Music Awards 2013 celebrity looks:

Billboard Awards 2013 Style: Short Dresses

Though long dresses are usually the norm at such high profile events, some celebs opted for refreshing short dresses instead. Taylor Swift looked dazzling in a sparkly Zuhair Murad mini dress which showed off her amazing legs. Ariana Grande also impressed in a sparkly, flirty strapless black cocktail dress, accessorized with fab black pumps.

Ke$ha also opted for black and went for a sexy Givenchy which she feels was a bold move on her part: “I went more naked… all over… than usual.” Palladium jewelry and nude wedge sandals completed her look. Chloe Moretz, on the other hand, took a trendier approach with a belted Fendi with fab geometric panels. Black open toe sandals with black and white beaded accents completed her look.

Long gowns might be more elegant, but they aren’t necessarily less bold than their shorter counterparts. Jennifer Lopez was one of the celebs that proved it, choosing a gorgeous gold embellished Zuhair Murad gown with a plunging neckline from the designer’s spring 2013 couture collection. The sexy ensemble was completed by pointy gold ankle-strap pumps and a fab black and gold clutch.

Billboard Music Awards 2013: Jumpsuits

Though jumpsuits used to be a relatively rare choice for formal events, it seems this is beginning to change. Miley Cyrus was one of the celebrities determined to shake things up bit and her fab Balmain jumpsuit with checker-like motifs definitely served her well, drawing all the spotlight on her. Given her high impact choice, the pair of simple black sandals she chose were the right option. Stana Katic took a plunge in a disco inspired jumpsuit from Nicholas Oakwell’s spring 2013 couture collection. Her silver honey comb belt became the instant focal point.
