Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Report

 

Last night was the annual Billboard Music Awards- which takes place every year in Las Vegas. Taylor Swift and Maroon 5 were both huge contestants, each nominated in 11 categories. What Lady Lux was concerned with, however, was what everyone was wearing! Award shows and big red carpets like the Billboard Music Awards are always great inspiration for us when styling our designer swimwear as well as picking out which styles are on trend. We saw a few trends we loved- from jewel tones to summer hues, the red (or actually blue) carpet was full of some great styles, as well as some not so great… Here are a few of our favorites.

 

 

Taylor Swift has recently been nailing red carpet after red carpet. She’s blossomed from a conservative teenager into a sexy starlet. Lately she’s been wearing shorter hems, lower necklines, and sexy cutouts- all of which are done tastefully, of course, and not all at once… Last night she rocked a royal blue micro mini dress which showed off the singers best asset- her statuesque legs. We absolutely loved the sapphire blue color of the dress, which gave us inspiration for other similar jewel tones such as the aquamarine Paradise bandeau, the amethyst purple of the Unforgettable bikini, and the pink sapphire color of the Pretty Young Thing bikini.

 

 

Black is a color that’s considered a staple for many women’s wardrobes. It’s a color that can easily go from fab to drab- based on the cut of the style as well as how you accessorize it. Emmy Rossum looked amazing in her black, floor-length gown with the use of sexy cutouts with sheer paneling. Not only did the cutouts flatter and accentuate her shape, but they were done tastefully, without being too risque. Bikinis are the same way. Truly, Madly, Deeply and Pretty Young Thing are both classic black bikinis with a twist. Their gold hardware gives them an extra feeling of glamour- defining them as luxury swimwear.

 

 

Summer is fast approaching- which is one of the reasons we loved Renee Bargh’s bright summer hue on her dress. The fun coral color coordinated perfectly with her glowing tan, which was made complete with her beachy waves. Still The One features not one, but two fun summer colors in a youthful tie-dye pattern. Other great summer-y options include Call On Me, which features tons of bright colors in a fun chevron pattern, as well as Melt Away, whose bright coral and turquoise colors get you in a playful mood for the season!

 

Other great starlets who displayed great style include Selena Gomez, Jennifer Morrison (who also rocked a sexy black dress with sheer paneling), and Jennifer Lopez. We can’t wait for the next red carpet!

Hot Little Summer Gems from the Street to the Beach

Summer is that one special time that brings sun, warmth and nature blooming into adventure. You want to be ready in your luxury swimwear looking cute and ready to hit the seaside. Remember those summer memories reading books, lounging at a beach somewhere and wearing your favorite designer swimwear to your friends pool party? You can relieve those memories of nostalgia. Here are a few summer gems to get you thinking about taking your style from the street to the beach.

 

 

Bright Colors

Summer has that sweet, enchanted, feeling that makes your think of Paradise.  Paradise is a place of white sand beaches.  Here you can wear your designer swimwear pieces and show your fun, and sexy vibe.  Bright colors are fun and they work to bring out skin tones and make your outfit stand out.  Check out how great Emmy Rossum, Blake Lively and Zoe Saldana look in turquoise!  You can highlight this color using a red for contrast.

 

Fresh Faces

Fresh faces were created for the summer.  You can stay fresh by wearing less makeup than you would in the winter.  You don’t have to worry about melting makeup and a sweaty face.  Dewy skin is more natural and looks great against a bright piece of luxury swimwear.  Let your outfit shine by toning down the amount of colors on your face.

 

 

Accessories

Accessories make an outfit.  Go for more flower child inspired looks like the flower in your hair or that feather necklace/earrings.  They make you look light and casual chic.  Vanessa Hudgens channels her inner seventies child at Coachella very well. Her style is relaxed and she looks relaxed and approachable.  You can throw on some bracelets and earrings to your beachwear and a wide brim hat for that scorching sun.  Don’t forget your sunnies and your sunscreen.
