Last night, pop music royalty like Justin Bieber, Drake, Britney Spears, and The Weeknd, gathered together for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. The night was nothing short of extraordinary, with jaw-dropping performances by the iconic Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and Madonna, who performed a touching tribute to Prince.
It's been a couple of months since the formal awards show season concluded with the Oscars, so we were excited to see stars return to the red carpet looking their best. The pink carpet saw stars like Lucy Hale, Kesha, Demi Lovato, and Ciara to name a few, dressed in everything from embellished suits, sheer gowns, bold colours, and metallic that sparkled under the hot Nevada sun.
JESSICA ALBA'S BLUE MAKEUP
While the pink carpet saw a numerous amount of eye-catching looks, Jessica Alba stepped out sporting one of this year's hottest makeup looks (and one of our favourites!) – blue makeup. After seeing the look on several L'Oreal muses at Cannes, we we're excited to see the trend continue on the actress last night. Jessica went for a chic, punk-inspired look, wearing a lace long-sleeve black mini dress with knee high boots.
She paired the look with a cool-girl top-knot and a dramatic blue smoky eye that gave her look a dark twist. Our favourite part about her look? We love that she opted to tie her hair back into a sleek top knot, allowing her eyes to stand out for a more dramatic look.
To get her look, start by spraying your hair with a heat protective spray, then flat iron your hair for a sleek look. Use a brush to pull your hair back into a ponytail, making sure that the top of your head is perfectly smooth. Wrap the hair around the base of your ponytail, and secure with bobby pins. Leave a small portion of hair sticking out of the bun to achieve that edgy, cool-girl look like Jessica's.
TREND: KNEE HIGH BOOTS & SMOKY EYES
For her performance last night, princess of pop Britney Spears had multiple outfits to be worn. The one that stood out the most? Her pink carpet look before the show. Along with Jessica Alba, Britney Spears stepped out wearing a sheer black gown with knee-high caged boots, proving that you don't have to wait until winter to try out this trend.
Like Alba, Britney also went heavy on the eye makeup, sporting a dark smoky eye that stood out against her bright blonde hair.
