The Billboard Music Awards are an annual event held by Billboard Magazine to celebrate music’s top artists. The award show has been around since 1989 but took a four year hiatus from 2007-2011. The show was originally pre-filmed but has aired live since 1992. It brings out big name celebrities and awards are given based not on votes but Nielson’s yearly performance data including sales, number of downloads and total air play. Here are some of this year’s winners.
Taylor Swift and Kate Spade Thelma
Taylor Swift won the “Woman of the Year Award”; quite an accomplishment for the 22 year star. The laid back cutie who we’re sure is a sweetheart is seen here at a flea market. It seems she was shopping for affordable art. Word is she even used a public restroom like the rest of us. We love her lace dress paired with brown accessories and nude low heel pumps similar to the Kate Spade Thelma. These gorgeous Kate Spade heels have fantastic cutout details and a classic tapered toe. They’re absolutely fabulous!
Adele and Pour La Victoire Portia
Wondering who the biggest winner was? You probably already know – 24 year old British singer, Adele! The vocal powerhouse won literally a dozen of awards including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Pop Artist and Top Pop Album for “21″. Congratulations Adele! Here, Adele is seen at the MTV Video Music Awards in a fitted knee length dress with a cool art deco collar and black pumps with a little flare like the Pour La Victoire Portia. These great Pour La Victoire pumps are red carpet ready, and they add tons of height with a helpful platform. Adele’s award stack puts her in the top 20 for most Billboard Awards ever recieved. Currently, Janet Jackson has the most with 33 awards.
Rihanna and Marc Jacobs 625970
Let’s start simple. This look is different, but not insanely difficult to pull off. We’ve seen it before, but it’s not a common look among everyday folk. At first glance, Rihanna looks like she is about to hit the gym. She’s spotted in Miami after lunch with friends rocking a white tee and athletic shorts, but look closer. She pairs her sporty look with several accessories not fit for fitness including hoop earrings, multiple bangles and chains and strappy sandals similar to the Marc Jacobs 625970. Pair these Marc Jacobs pumps with your favorite skimpy sport shorts to snag her look. Rihanna snagged one award for Top Streaming Artist.
