Elsa Pataky joined up with her Fast & Furious 6 costars Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel to premiere their new flick in LA yesterday. The opening bash wasn't short on spectacle, with Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, and Ludacris — who also stars in the film — taking the stage to perform for the crowd gathered at the Universal CityWalk. Unfortunately, Elsa's husband, Chris Hemsworth, couldn't join her for the premiere as he is busy filming Cyber with Viola Davis. The new Fast and Furious film, which hits theaters on Friday, is the latest installment in the speed-addicted franchise that has spanned an impressive 12 years — be sure to check out the evolution of the Fast and Furious stars!
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet was red hot, with Selena Gomez leading the pack. The singer was one of the first to arrive — and she did so in an eye-catching neon-infused Atelier Versace gown from the label's Spring '13 collection. Also in the mix? Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Chloë Moretz, Hayden Panettiere, 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.

On the heels of her Met Gala appearance, Madonna is at it again at the Billboard Music Awards. The (first) Queen of Pop received the top touring artist award, and while she may have skipped the red carpet, her Givenchy Haute Couture outfit was certainly worth the wait. Dressed in some recognizable pieces courtesy of the aforementioned Met Gala, Madonna took the stage in a black fishnet dress, topped with a texturized, cropped, and feather-collared bomber jacket. But the look didn't end there. She wore it all cinched with a grommet-embellished wide belt and finished with thigh-high stockings, which were fastened with a garter belt. As for the last bit of accessories? She also rocked her monogrammed padlock choker, statement sunglasses, and black platform pumps. Did she nail it?
Jennifer Lopez flaunted her figure in a Zuhair Murad gown that showed off her stems with sheer, embellished fabric and a neckline that plunged toward her navel. It was all about gold, too — the dress sparkled thanks to metallic scales, and the effect was finished with ankle-strap pumps and a clutch in the same hue. Do you like it all together?
Taylor Swift is no stranger to wearing Zuhair Murad's sexy dresses (the proof here and here), and tonight's Billboard Music Awards reminded us why we love when she does. Her electric blue Pre-Fall 2013 look showed off the singer's long legs, but the skin-baring elements didn't stop there. The long-sleeved mini also gave way to sheer insets and symmetrical cutouts on both the neckline and back. Swift polished it all off with a knuckle ring, pewter-colored earrings and heels, and sultry eye makeup to match. Are you into it?
Long sleeves and a floor-sweeping silhouette didn't mean Emmy Rossum's velvet Zuhair Murad look was buttoned-up. Far from it! Sheer, spotted fabric let the actress flash some skin, and from the back, it was positively sultry. Do you like the hourglass effect Emmy achieved?
Miley Cyrus is on a hot streak, with the Billboard Music Awards as her latest reason to stun in something equal parts sexy and rocker chick. Her black-and-white Balmain jumpsuit featured an intricately woven texture and some serious all-over checkerboard print — which meant she needed only a pair of Givenchy heels and a bold red lip to finish. Perhaps it's the bleached pixie cut, being named No. 1 on Maxim's annual Hot 100 list, a little leftover inspiration from her Met Gala getup, or all of the above — either way, Miley knows how to make a red carpet statement these days. Do you agree?
Glitz and glamour has its place, but sometimes all-black is just perfect. Hayden Panettiere must feel the same, if the high-necked, open-back black gown she chose for tonight's Billboard Awards was any indication. The Nashville star (who's shown off some pretty impressive pipes on the show!) went for high-shine accessories with a metallic gold clutch and statement David Yurman earrings. Do you like her simple look?
Selena Gomez, one of the most anticipated stars expected on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, did us all a favor by showing up early and ending the style curiosity over what she'd wear. The star stayed true to her love of Atelier Versace by picking a white dress from the house accented with zippers and neon tubing at the neck, shoulders, and back. A sexy sheer slash straight down the middle provided a bit of sizzle, too. Do you like the bold embellishments and color palette?
When Scandal's Kerry Washington steps onto the red carpet, she is a major fashion force to be reckoned with. But don't take our word — the proof is in the pudding. The actress has been on a roll lately, delivering killer look after killer look by top design houses like Miu Miu, Lanvin, Rodarte, and Oscar de la Renta. And no matter the silhouette or color, Kerry looks amazing in just about anything she wears, be it a minidress, gown, skirt, or jumpsuit. In black lace, she's sexy; in white, angelic; and in florals, undeniably darling. Just in time for the season-two ending of Scandal, see all the wowing red-carpet moments from Kerry when you head inside.
