May 20 2013 - 6:00am

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet was red hot, with Selena Gomez [1] leading the pack.

Jennifer Lopez [3], Taylor Swift [4], Chloë Moretz, Hayden Panettiere [5], and a very sexy Jennifer Morrison. Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Click through to see who wore what at the Billboard Music Awards.

Like her Met Gala getup [6], Madonna [7] dared to go punk again in Givenchy [8] Haute Couture while accepting an award for Top Touring Artist on stage at the Billboard Awards. She wore a plush fur-accented jacket over a black leotard, then added more daring details: sheer stockings, wraparound sunglasses, a studded belt, a padlock choker, and an oversize ring.

Jennifer Lopez [9] stunned (and sparkled) in a plunging gold embellished Zuhair Murad gown with a sheer skirt and gold ankle-strap pumps.

Taylor Swift [10] showed off her legs in a vibrant blue Zuhair Murad minidress from the Pre-Fall '13 collection. She matched the sapphire hue with Ofira earrings and ring.

Selena Gomez [11] chose a neon-infused Atelier Versace [12] Spring '13 gown, complete with a sexy thigh-high slit. To finish, she wore silver metallic sandals and a high ponytail.

Miley Cyrus [13] showed off her fit figure in a Balmain [14] jumpsuit featuring a black checker-like print. She finished it all off with black Givenchy [15] sandals and a bold red lip.

Emmy Rossum wowed in a black long-sleeved Zuhair Murad gown. The silhouette was dramatic but the sheer polka dots added lots of charm.

Nicki Minaj brought the color in a bright red gown with sequins along the bodice and matching platform sandals.

Chloë Moretz opted for a dress that was both playful and geometric-inspired — a perfect pick for the young style setter.

Hayden Panettiere [16] was a vision in a simple black gown that featured a sleek asymmetrical neckline.

Ke$ha ditched her funky layers for an incredibly chic little black ruffle dress, minimalistic nude ankle-strap sandals, and Jupiter Jewelry diamond bracelets.

Kelly Rowland dazzled while posing in her Rami Al Ali metallic gown and coordinating silver ankle-strap sandals.

Jennifer Morrison turned heads in a very sexy Kristian Aadvenik dress. Between the corseted bodice and sheer skirt, there are quite a few skin-revealing elements to take in. She then added a black Edie Parker [17] clutch to match.

Carly Rae Jepsen played with proportions, albeit subtly, with this "high" meets low LBD.

Shania Twain's silver strapless gown came with a cool knot detail that gave it a unique spin.

Ariana Grande went flirty — with a dose of high shine — with her strapless full-skirted cocktail dress.

Stana Katic took a major plunge in a white striped jumpsuit, complete with a silver metallic belt.

Alyssa Milano [18] went with all-white in a one-shouldered tunic, complete with sheer wide-leg trousers.

Kimberly Perry, of The Band Perry, went with something much more glamorous, thanks to a princess-like pearl white skirt and embellished bodice combination.

Avril Lavigne [19] — pictured here with fiancé Chad Kroeger — was edgy in a black leather minidress and black sandal boots.

Jenny McCarthy [20] went the midriff baring route, pairing a cropped tank top with a semisheer racer-band maxi skirt to complete the effect.

Amber Rose kept it simple in a sheer-sleeved black shift and sandals.
