The 2012 Billboard Music Awards took place on Sunday, May 20th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.  “Modern Family” stars Ty Burell and Julie Bowen hosted the three-hour ceremony which brought a night of tributes to the stage.  The late Whitney Houston was honored with the Millennium award, as John Legend and American Idol Jordin Sparks did versions of the late singer’s hits of “The Greatest Love of All” and “I Will Always Love You.”  Taylor Swift took home Billboard Woman of the Year looking like a Barbie doll in a scarlet Elie Saab lace gown.

The red carpet arrivals were not that exciting.  Only a few stood out in my opinion. Here are my picks for Best Dressed on the red carpet.
