Billboard Music Awards red carpet style throughout the years

Best and Worst All-Time Billboard Music Awards Fashion
The Billboard Music Awards are the perfect time for stars to flaunt fun styles -- and there's no doubt they seize the opportunity. But big fashion risks can sometimes result in red carpet disasters.

Fergie and Mariah Carey looked killer at the awards show in 1998 and 1999, respectively, but both Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson missed the mark big time in 2000.

In recent memory, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner all rocked stunning looks on the Billboard red carpet ... but do you remember Kesha's "cheeky" 2013 look?

Take a walk down memory lane in the video above -- and check out more Billboard styles in the gallery below.

Now that's a pair -- but what is up with Usher's head-to-toe yellow? Not to mention that heinous fur coat ...

We seriously love Fergie's oh-so-1998 braids, but we're not down with those gloves and that sash.

We know Jessica Simpson's boots were made for walking, but what were those fringe sleeves made for?

We wonder what 2015 Britney would think of 2000 Britney's "Carmen Sandiego"-inspired getup.

We kind of miss Destiny's Child's matchy-matchy days.

Pink may have had bills printed all over her gown in 2000 -- but we can't say it looked very expensive.

Mandy Moore rocked a cute little red dress with a ribbon belt back in her heyday in 2000.

Was Pink going for pirate glam? The star rocked a fishnet halter dress, multi-colored dreadlocks and lace up sandals in 2001.

Alicia Keys rocked denim and leopard print at the 2001 show.

Do you think Carrie Underwood knew how big of a star she would become back in 2005?

How chic did Rihanna look in 2011? We still love her crisp and effortless look.
