While we patiently waited to roast the celebs and pop stars making bizarre fashion statements on the Billboard Music Award’s red carpet, fans on Twitter did our job and they did it pretty well.
The attendees paraded in style, or that is what they thought, and we were struck with a realization that pop stars may hit high notes with their vocal range, but when it comes to red carpets they fall flat. Here are the celebs who need to find a good stylist ASAP, a stylist with good fashion sense because god forbid we don’t want aliens to think they represent human clothing.
1. Christina Aguilera
The first on the list, aka the most trolled pop star on the Billboard red carpet, was none other than the unrecognizable Christina Aguilera. Walking down the red carpet at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, X-tina showed up in a bizarre pinstripe gown (not sure if we can call it that).
The unflattering and bulky gown swamped her shapely figure and she looked like she was gobbled by a whale. The custom-made 16Arlington dress was the epitome of what not to wear at office and what not to wear outside, ever!
Neither the long train of the dress, nor the chunky belt did anything to enhance her silhouette. The drape and the stripes were so mismatched, she looked like a curtain. In no way, did the dress embody her “back to business” caption. It’s something you wear to mess up the business. This time, there was no saving grace for X-tina. From afar she looked like a striped trash bag, a closer look, her lips looked too plumped, to even pretend it’s natural.
2. Pharrell Williams
Pharrell Williams isn’t a regular on this list, but unfortunately, this time he was trolled amply on social media for his hideous choice of attire.
The 45-year-old donned a floral print T-shit with boxing shorts and Timberland boots. We never thought such a pairing existed and now since Pharrell demonstrated it, we cannot unsee it. Many Twitter users raged to figure what was happening with the ‘Happy’ singer and if he had lost his mind.
Subjected to ruthless comments, the singer was compared to a child who outgrew his clothes and that was pretty obvious.
Okay, she’s cool, but that doesn’t mean she makes it to the best dressed list. Her outfit at the Vegas event has etched her name on this one and for a good reason. With all the sparkles and tassles, and the cowboy hat and boot, she looks like she rushed to the vintage store at the very last moment.
Draped in layers of gold, from a Bohemian frayed cape to a fringe dress, Ke$ha, who often makes bold fashion choices, lost this time to a hee-haw girl surprised to attend a ball.
4. Z Lala
Those who have been following this Armenian-American singer know that winding metallic ensemble isn’t something new. These fashion choices are peculiarly hers, so while she basks in this glory and hits the red carpet looking like a different kind of species, we are here to judge.
Envisaged in golden metallic ribbons or cassette reels, she looks like she’s got a python draped all over her, but she paraded the carpet with the utmost villainous confidence. She carried with her a tower on her head, from where Rapunzel had a dramatic escape. Could she be the one to have imprisoned Rapunzel in the tower? The looks suggest that the chances are endless.
5. Demi Lovato
We love her fierceness and absolutely loved her duet with X-tina. But on the red carpet, she was doing her duet with Christina and featuring alongside the worst dressed celebs.
Animal prints are so outdated and Demi’s attempt to bring it back is as futile as Pharell’s outfit in proving a point. Her leopard dress with plunging neckline and flare sleeves and slits, looked cougar enough for the MILF awards, but little else. Good for her that sleek hair and dangles still go together, but God spare the hideous 2001 prints.
6. Tyra Banks
Looking like she’s trying so hard to impress, Tyra Banks looked witchy with an all-black ensemble and smokey makeup. One Twitter user accurately pointed out that she looks more of ‘Maleficient’ than ‘magnificent’ and we couldn’t agree more.
Her black Marc Bouwer dress exhibited a vampire neckline and frilled lining on the sleeves. Her satin strap heels with pearl and ribbons were a miss with the dress. Her sash-fierce pose at the red carpet was not making the attire look any good.
7. Courtney Quinn
Blogger Courtney Quinn must have made Marilyn Monroe cry a river in heaven. He shiny pink Marilyn dress paired with turquoise heels and earrings and multi-colored clutch looked like she was playing a cartoon character on the red carpet. If Smurf makers need any more inspiration then they could google her look.
8. Bruno Mars
As flashy as Bruno tries to be, dripping fineness, he served fashion a little less when he walked on stage wearing a chunky gold necklace and a rain-coat like drawstring jacket.
Adding salt to the wound, the jacket was buttoned in reverse, flashing a white top. The navy blue jacket was paired with black trousers and Virgil Abloh’s collaborative Nike sneaker. The outfit was not completely bad but yeah, Bruno’s stylist should have advised him to drop his chunky gold neckpiece.
9. Camila Cabello
As hard as it may be to accept, we have to admit that the ‘Havana’ singer isn’t great on the red carpet. After her fashion miss at the iHeart Radio awards, she makes another major fashion blunder opting for a black and white frilly fringe gown. Doing no justice to the classic black and white ensemble, the former Fifth Harmony singer shredded her red carpet moment or was that her dress?
10. Chrissy Metz
Her fashion choice was good but why too many laces and tassels? The dress would have looked so much better had she omitted the rope on the bodice and the border on the ends. The tie-up shoes made the look more uneasy since the one-shoulder black dress was frilly and full of holes.
