Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena rolled out the red carpet on Wednesday night as celebrities arrived for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

The event, which was hosted by singer Kelly Clarkson for the second year, saw stars come together to celebrate the music industry’s most lauded and creative talent.

The fun vibe of the night inspires guests to ditch tradition and get creative with their looks every year and 2019 was no different with stars donning everything from snake-print suits to tiered tulle dresses and even cowboy boots.

Among the best dressed were actor Priyanka Chopra who sported a white sequinned dress by Zuhair Murad, rapper Cardi B in a show-stopping canary yellow two-piece, and actor Olivia Wilde who opted for head-to-toe gold.

While the Billboard Music Awards is undoubtedly a great opportunity for stars to show off their sartorial prowess, the event was also filled with a number of performances and of course plenty of award winners.

Taylor Swift opened this year’s awards with the very first live performance of her new single “Me!” alongside Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie, while Madonna and Colombian singer Maluma performed their new collaborative single “Medellin” with the help of a couple Madonna holograms.

One of the biggest winners of the night was Drake who made history by becoming the the most-awarded artist in Billboard Music Awards history, nabbing 12 awards to bring his all-time total up to 27.
