Las Vegas might be known for playing up the glitz and glam, but for Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, it was all about the little black dress. Whether it was super sexy like Selena Gomez‘s cut-out Dolce & Gabbana gown or futuristic like Fergie‘s strap-heavy Hervé Léger by Max Azria Atelier mini, music’s heaviest hitters went for the classic color. Nicole Kidman added a sweet touch with her long lace dress and side braid, while Beyoncé embodied simple elegance in a Lanvin sheath with over 75 carats of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds! Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott skipped the country-favorite gowns for a sleek Mandalay dress with a semi-precious stone neckline. And let’s not forget Kylie Minogue’s heavily embellished Alexander McQueen frock with fringed booties or Britney Spears‘s clean-lined, spaghetti strap Hervé Léger mini. Whew, what a night for the LBD! Take our poll below and tell us who was your favorite!

I think Selena Gomez does not have the body shape nor the age to be wearing a dress like that. She looked like she could of been Justin Beibers mom.

I think Hilary and Beyonce’s dresses are the most beautiful, flattering, and age appropriate. I would have added Selena Gomez to that category, but I think she is too young to have worn a cut out dress, plus the shape is not flattering on her body type. Kylie, Fergie, and Britney look like they are trying to be 25 again, Nicole looks like she is going to a funeral.

selena looks stunning…by far the prettiest dress!

Selena is 18. Girls who are 14 go around with their butt cheeks hanging out of their shorts and Miley Cyrus wears anything but lingerie. Selena looks great and mature.

Selena Gomez looks pretty. Not all of us are blessed with curves. I think the dress looks great nonetheless. She’s almost 19, not 12.

I do agree with all the ideas you have presented on your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
