Find out what has everyone talking the day after an extremely eventful night for music's biggest stars!
Music's biggest stars headed to Sin City for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and we couldn't help but notice all of the exposed skin on the red carpet! Selena Gomez went for daring illusion slits, Taylor Swift showed off some serious leg, while Jennifer Lopez went for one of her signatures: a plunging neckline. Plus, Miley Cyrus took a fashion risk in a jumpsuit, and it totally paid off. All this and more in today's Fashion Flash. On Allison: Equipment top, IRO blouse, Express skirt.
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards, which were hosted by Tracy Morgan, took over the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Sunday! The stars hit the red carpet to kick off the night and then made their way inside to get the fun started. Bruno Mars stuck to his usual suited-up look in a red ensemble to open the show, while Carly Rae Jepsen, who won top digital song and two other honors, debuted hair of the same hue when she took the microphone to announce Icona Pop's performance of "I Love It." Shania Twain handed out the first statue of the evening to Nicki Minaj, who won top rap artist, while Selena Gomez took the stage to perform "Come and Get It." Tracy had a little fun in front of the audience by challenging Psy to a dance off while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis teamed up to sing their top rap song, "Thrift Shop."
Taylor Swift — who picked up six awards before the show even started and two more, including artist of the year, during the broadcast — was another of the evening's performers, belting out "22" after walking the carpet in a bright blue Zuhair Murad dress. Other big winners included Rihanna and Gotye, each with four trophies, as well as Justin Bieber with the milestone award.
Before hitting the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in blue sequins yesterday, Taylor Swift showed us how to look every bit as cool, all while maintaining a feminine flair. During a Beverly Hills shopping session with a friend, the singer tucked a printed top with an always-adorable Peter Pan collar into a burgundy pleated miniskirt. She then pulled in the perfect accessories: her favorite Mark Cross messenger bag, tan woven oxfords, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an edgier finish. Next time you hit the retail circuit, reference Taylor's girlie-cum-cool creation and don't leave home without your favorite add-ons. To get similar pieces, shop our picks below.

Selena and Justin reportedly reunited in Vegas before the show, and while they weren't shown sitting together at the event, they were caught in this sweet embrace backstage. So check out the GIF and tell us what you think. Was Taylor Swift caught making an actual "ew" face about Selena and Justin — OMG yes or LOL no?
Taylor Swift's Billboard Music Awards was off to a great start before the show even kicked off — she racked up six wins early on thanks to a pre-telecast announcement of a handful of categories. Taylor picked a blue Zuhair Murad minidress to hit the red carpet before taking her seat alongside BFF Selena Gomez and her on-again off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber inside. Taylor took to the stage to perform her latest single, "22," wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with a unicorn and the phrase "Haters Gonna Hate." Taylor's "22" is currently tearing up the charts as she travels on her world tour, though she was able to take time off recently to attend the Met Gala and film a guest-starring role on the New Girl season finale.
Taylor paired her edgy dress with heavy black eyeliner — weigh in on her bold beauty decision on POPSUGAR Beauty and watch for lots more Billboard Awards coverage all night long!
Taylor Swift is no stranger to wearing Zuhair Murad's sexy dresses (the proof here and here), and tonight's Billboard Music Awards reminded us why we love when she does. Her electric blue Pre-Fall 2013 look showed off the singer's long legs, but the skin-baring elements didn't stop there. The long-sleeved mini also gave way to sheer insets and symmetrical cutouts on both the neckline and back. Swift polished it all off with a knuckle ring, pewter-colored earrings and heels, and sultry eye makeup to match. Are you into it?
Taylor Swift was up to her old tricks at the Billboard Music Awards. The songstress stuck to her classic, beautiful look with thick black and blue eyeliner and a gorgeous pink lipstick hue. Her hair was kept simply slicked-back into a ponytail with her blunt bangs on full display.
