  • From Rihanna to Madonna, see all the highlights from the 2016 Billboard Music Awards...

    The Billboard Music Awards has long been one of the biggest events on the music calendar, and sees some of the hottest artists hit the red carpet in serious style, and this year’s bash held in Las Vegas was no different.

    This year’s guest list included Rihanna, Madonna, Mila Kunis, Jessica Alba and Kate Beckinsale to name but a few, with the likes of Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Celine Dion pulling out all the stops for their performances throughout the show.

    Ciara took the reigns as host for the night, stepping out in an impressive selection of gowns including a slinky metallic number to walk the red carpet, changing-up her look with some black floor-grazers, sheer creations and an equally impressive selection of beauty looks to match.

    Alongside the many awards dished out on the night, there were some pretty spectacular tributes. Namely, Madonna and Stevie Wonder, who together put on a dazzling rendition of Prince’s Purple Rain in honour of the late icon.

    Style-wise, there were plenty of standout looks and a fair amount of flesh on show. Jessica Alba wowed in a black mini, complete with thigh high boots and a sleek top knot, Heidi Klum went for cool cut-outs for her turn on the red carpet, while Zendaya slipped into a blush two-piece creation.

    Yes, it’s fair to say the 2016 Billboard Music Awards was a seriously star-studded affair.
