Billboard Awards 2015: fashion highs and lows from the evening.

One Direction made their first awards show red carpet appearance as a foursome and were greeted by deafening screams at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Taylor Swift, who dominated the awards with eight wins, arrived in a white cut out jumpsuit accompanied by the cast of her highly anticipated music video “Bad Blood” which premiered during the show. Sporting a shorter, wavy haircut, she was joined by her pals including singer Zendaya, Victoria’s Secret angel Lily Aldridge and actress Hailee Steinfeld.

British singer Charli XCX opted for a more simple look, wearing a vintage black slip from the 1950s, telling E: “I just wanted to walk out of the house, throw it on and go.” Reality star and model Kendall Jenner stuck to the popular monochrome theme in a black and white pearl-embellished tuxedo jacket with black skinny jeans, white her sister Kylie chose and black and white leather minidress and thick gold belt. Swift swapped her first two verses with new ones from rapper Kendrick Lamar for “Bad Blood,” a song rumored to be about Swift’s friendship with Perry. Van Halen was the night’s first performance and rocked the crowd with its 1984 hit “Panama.” Mariah Carey sang her first hit, “Vision of Love,” which was pitchy. Swift and Zendaya sang along as Nicki Minaj mainly danced, barely singing or rapping live and relying on a backing track during “Hey Mama” and “The Night Is Still Young.” The Simple Minds performed “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from “The Breakfast Club,” which is celebrating 30 years. Meghan Trainor performed a duet with John Legend and won hot 100 song for “All About That Bass.” She was teary and shaky onstage, as was her friend and collaborator Charlie Puth, who performed “See You Again” with Wiz Khalifa earlier in the show.

Hosts Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen offered some jokes Sunday night: The rapper described why he’s a good host, namechecking his music and acting credits. Teigen, a model, replied, “And I bang a musician” as her husband, John Legend, stood up. “I have to thank, of course, my beautiful co-host, my lovely wife, Chrissy Teigen,” he said. “I am so proud that we won this award together tonight.” Disclaimer: The comments uploaded on this site do not necessarily represent or reflect the views of management and owner of INQUIRER.net.
