Dresses with sheer bodices and lace detailing have been really popular for Prom 2013, and it was certainly a style to watch at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, too! The BBMAs were held on Sunday May 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and our favorite looks on the blue carpet (yes, blue...not red!) were worn by Ariana Grande and Jennifer Morrison. They both looked so stunning in black sheer and lace pieces that we decided to dedicate our Billboard Music Awards post to them! Check out what they wore below and how you can get their looks for your next formal event.
Ariana Grande, who plays Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon TV show Victorious, wore a dress from one of our favorite designers, Jovani! A fun and flirty strapless little black dress, Jovani style 72719 has beautiful sheer, lace and floral detailing.
Best yet, there are two ways that this dress can be worn. There's the flowy short skirt version that Ariana wore, and there's also a fitted version. The fitted version is Jovani style 900. Both are perfect graduation dresses!
Another black sheer and lace look that we loved was worn by Jennifer Morrison, who plays Dr. Allison Cameron in House and Emma Swan in Once Upon a Time. Not only was the bodice sheer, but her over skirt was, too! It was definitely a very sexy look!
When it comes to lace and sheer, Jovani is definitely the go-to designer. And, to get Jennifer's look, this is definitely no exception! There are two dresses that Jovani makes that we absolutely love for a sheer bodice + sheer skirt look: styles 3592 and 5454. They are both beautiful looks if you want to show off some leg, but don't want to wear a short dress.
Much like Jennifer's gown, Jovani style 3592 is a strapless floor length gown that features lace detailing on the sheer bodice and a jersey skirt with sheer overlay.
Jovani style 5454 is a little different than Jennifer's look, since it has two straps, but we love it just the same! It's an elegant evening gown that features a sheer length skirt and a sheer bodice with beading.
With the warmer weather here, it's certainly the best time to show off some skin with a sheer lace look! The lace and black makes it an elegant choice, while the sheer adds some fun and sexiness.
