Billboards 2019: Best dressed of the night

At the Billboards, it's go big or go home.

Jennifer Hudson put a twist on her perfectly-tailored camel suit with silver criss-crossed chains, while Kaitlyn Dever opted for a more oversized blazer and pants.

Paula Abdul, who just announced her own Vegas residency, modernized '80s glam in a white strong-shouldered mini dress with silver fringe.

Also landing on our best-dressed list were Ciara and Taylor Swift, both of whom dressed to the nines. The ladies each performed during the broadcast.

While there were plenty of stunning stars on the red carpet, noticeably absent from the paparazzi line were divas Mariah Carey and Madonna, who waited until the show to make their big arrivals.
