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!
