Let’s face it…awards shows in the oh-so-fabulous Las Vegas are only bound to get rowdy! And the 2013 Billboard Music Awards were no different. From stand-out performances and dozens of laughter-filled moments thanks to host Tracy Morgan, to the fabulous fashions spotted on the blue carpet, we’d say it was a night to remember! Music’s favorite blonde bombshell Taylor Swift reigned supreme, snagging a whopping eight golden trophies, one of which for the evening’s biggest honor of Top Artist. (You go girl!) And of course, she wasn’t the only one, as fellow industry talents like Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, among others, also racked in the accolades. We could go on and on about the evening’s eventful moments, but we’re more concerned about something else: the celebs’ snazzy specs and sunnies, duh!
A variety of sleek silhouettes—like futuristic shields, hippy rounds, Clubmaster-inspired profiles, classy squares and aviators—ran the gamut. A somewhat neutral palette of jet black, navy blue and clean white hues, with hints of vibrant yellow and amber, kept A-listers’ eyewear lookin’ super chic. Meanwhile, daring details, such as obvious color-blocking, translucent and colorful patterns, and blacked-out and mirrored lenses, injected a sense of badass edge into these artists’ already-lively frames!
