WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Billboard Music Awards on May 19, 2013.
WEARING: Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress, and jewelry from Palladium & Jupiter Jewelry New York.
MY VERDICT: I honestly thought my eyes were playing tricks on me when I saw Ke$ha on the livestream during the
red blue carpet arrivals for the Billboard Music Awards. The “Crazy Kids” singer topped my worst dressed list for last year due to her assortment of oddly put together printed ensembles, but she somehow managed to almost completely clean up her look.
Ke$ha wore a black silk ruffled Givenchy sleeveless dress, from the Spring 2013 collection that was originally presented with a single sleeve and partnered with pants on the runway. She wore her long blonde hair back in a sleek ponytail to accommodate the high neck design—with an equally high slit at the left thigh.
I don’t see that many ruffles and tight fabric around the neck being too flattering, or comfortable for that matter, on anyone—along with the shapeless area around the waist. That’s probably my biggest qualm with the look; it’s not so much how Ke$ha looks in it as it is the fact that I’m not a big fan of the dress. Because, quite frankly, she was styled pretty well here.
She accessorized with two Palladium rings that matched her delicate Jupiter Jewelry New York bangles and diamond earrings. This look was then complete with a subtle neutral makeup palette and nude ankle strap leather wedge sandals.
