The 2013 annual Billboard Music Awards took place in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last night and was host to an array of young music stars, including Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.

23-year-old country turned pop singer/songwriter Taylor Swift, bagged an impressive eight accolades, which included Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Country Artist.

Singer Rihanna, who won four awards, was noticeably absent, as she opted for a low-key dinner instead. Maybe the fact that the singers ex, Chris Brown was performing at the star-studded event was the reason she decided to stay well away.

With performances from Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Christina Aguilera and Taylor Swift herself, the event was a huge success celebrating some of America’s most talented musicians to-date.

Yet, as a Fashion & Beauty PR company, we couldn’t help but be more interested in the ‘blue’ carpet fashion
