But A Few People Looked OK at The Billboard Music Awards

Like Taylor Swift here. Taylor Swift looked ok at the Billboard Music Awards. In fact, I’d wager that she had the best look of the night, generally speaking. I really like her dress, and it obviously looks great on her.

Another lady who had a good look was Brandy, but to be honest, I can’t decide if I actually like her dress or if I just think she looks nice because I’ve always been envious of hair like that. Regardless, gold shoes!

Next up is Jordin Sparks, who I’ve always thought was completely adorable, wearing a lovely little dress. This one is remarkable because it’s one of the only dresses I’ve ever seen on a red carpet that I would actually like to wear in real life:

Then there’s one of our favorite ladies, Zooey Deschanel, going after my own heart in a sparkly dress and black tights:

But then we have my personal favorite dress, worn by the very fabulous Carrie Underwood:

But which one was your favorite?

Who Told Everyone to Look Ridiculous at The Billboard Music Awards?

Really though, who was it? Because whoever it was is not a good friend. Whoever called the entire guest list of the Billboard Music Awards and said “hey, just wanted to let you know to be sure to have awful hair, horrible makeup, and/or a really bad dress! Love you, girl!” has a dark, mischievous spirit and needs to be held accountable for all of this.

There was Miley Cyrus, obviously, and her ensemble. Sarah showed you her choices just a little while ago, but you know I can’t just let that be the end of it. Look at that hair, you guys. I know Miley’s a Southern girl, so she was ingrained with that meaningful mantra, “the higher the hair, the closer to God,” but this isn’t the Dixie Stampede or the Grand Ole Opry, and you shouldn’t use your hair to fool yourself.

Then there was Natasha Beddingfield. Girl.

And Justin Bieber wore a wallet chain and two earrings:

But then Katy Perry trumped them all with this mess:

She’s wearing that tragic makeup again, as you can see. And her dress … I don’t even know what to say. Her dress looks like something I would have loved for my Barbies to have worn in 1994. Her dress looks like it would go great with a classic pair of jellies. Which is all to say that her dress looks silly but fun, I suppose. Meanwhile, her makeup …

It’s just not a good situation.

Did You Watch The Billboard Music Awards Last Night?

No? I didn’t either. I cuddled with the kitty and watched Drive instead, so if there were any earth-shattering moments or amazing performances or backstage gossip, I haven’t heard about it yet. Nope, right now, all I know is who won what award.

That’s why I used that old picture of Adele up there, because even though she wasn’t even in attendance, she won all of the awards. Surprise, right? Well, ok, she did lose a handful of the awards that she was nominated for, but she won eleven, so that’s nothing to scoff at. Another neat thing is that she beat Lady Gaga in each of the seven categories that they were both nominated for. Small miracles.

Other notable wins include Chris Brown‘s for Top R&B Artist and Taylor Swift‘s Woman of the Year Award. I don’t understand either of these for very different reasons, and I don’t understand how Coldplay beat Mumford & Sons four times.
