Cher's dress!

There are too many memorable moments from the Billboard Music Awards 2017 for us to discuss - including Miley Cyrus’ emotional rendition of Malibu, which is about her and Liam FYI.

So instead, we thought we’d focus on the outfits that we absolutely need to talk about.

Cher’s chain number

Obviously, we couldn’t not mention Cher’s incredible costume. Can we stop for a moment and admire the fact that she is 71-years-old, and still rocking tassels like a pro. The singer wore a barely-there costume featuring chains and heart-shaped nipple tassels, because obviously.

Celine Dion’s white dress

Celine belted out My Heart Will Go On as screens behind her showed footage of Titanic, to celebrate the song’s 20th anniversary. She looked otherworldly in a white Stephane Roland dress with sleeves that are too big for words.

Kate Beckinsale’s fireworks gown

If Katy Perry’s Fireworks song was a dress, it would be Kate Beckinsale’s plunging Zuhair Murad gown.

Rita Ora’s power dressing

Rita Ora meant business in a see-through skirt and 80s-tastic embellished blouse.

Vanessa Hudgens' bow dress

The former High School Musical star look as elegant as can be in a bow dress by Marchesa.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
