2021 Billboard Music Awards red carpet: Pink works a plunging fuchsia frock

The stars dazzled as they kicked off the 2021 Billboard Music Awards in style.

Pink, Alicia Keys, and Saweetie were among the celebrities slaying the red carpet at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday. 

The superstars brightened up the red carpet in their brightly-hued ensembles, consisting of eye-catching shades of fuchsia, pink, and tangerine orange. 

Pink, 41, took the plunge in a dazzling fuchsia gown with a matching pair of chandelier style earrings upping the glam factor. 

The hit-maker glammed up her ordinarily edgy hairdo with a touch of curls.   

She was joined by her two children, Willow, nine, and Jameson, four, who were both looking cool in their own red carpet-ready looks.

Meanwhile, Alicia, 40, bared her gym-honed abs in a blush pink crop top, matching trousers, and billowing jacket hanging over her elbows.

With her beautiful complexion accented with a natural hue of makeup, the Fallin’ singer was a sight to behold as she made her grand entrance.

Also putting on head-turning display was My Type singer Saweetie, 27, who flashed her cleavage in a princess-style gown adorned with a floral design and tulle skirt. 

Pink, claw-like nails, silver heels, and metallic floral earrings finished off the ultra-glamorous look.

It’s the first time the 28-year-old singer and actor has hosted the show.

Billboard said in a statement earlier this month: ‘This is Jonas’ first time as host of the Billboard Music Awards, which is two years older than he is. (He’s 28; the show launched 30 years ago).’

‘But he’s had lots of awards show experience, including teaming with his wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, to announce this year’s Oscar nominations.’ 

Nick – who is taking over from Kelly Clarkson as presenter – joked: ‘Truly an honor to have already received the first preemptive 2021 #BBMAs award. Best host ever?! Wow! Tune-in May 23rd at 8pm ET/5pm PT on @NBC.’
