Jennifer Lopez, Kesha, Miley Cyrus, Emmy Rossum, Billboard Music Awards

We were totally expecting red carpet drama at last night's 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Let's face it: Music industry events are usually full of glaring beauty "don'ts".

So you can imagine how stunned we were that, for the most part, the starlets and songstresses skipped the theatrics and ruled the red carpet with the kind of looks we'd want to try and duplicate at home (rather than save for Halloween costume).

We saw Jennifer Lopez and Ke$ha rock "fresh faced" looks, while Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez fell at the opposite end of the spectrum with heavy dark-lined eyes and bold, bubblegum pink lips.

Of course there were some surprises, like Ke$ha going for a natural look, Carly Rae Jepsen's new ginger locks and Kelly Rowland's beauty disaster. But the celebs played it so safe last night that some of their beauty looks were downright predictable.

Of course a red carpet wouldn't be a red carpet without some beauty snafus, so you'll just have to check out our roundup of the most notable Billboard Awards beauty looks to see who stopped the show and who should have just gone home.
