There was a lot of skin, sequins and even some side butt at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. But the biggest trend from last night's red carpet? Zuhair Murad.

The designer was worn by three A-listers and each look landed in our best-dressed list. Jennifer Lopez—a longtime fan of the designer—went with a golden gown with plunging neckline. Taylor Swift wore a sparkling blue mini that showed off her mile-long legs and Emmy Rossum rocked a sequin-free black gown with polka dot panels.

Another big trend? Style makeunders. Specifically from outrageous performers Nicki Minaji and Ke$ha. Both chose more toned-down frocks—though Ke$ha's Givenchy LBD did have an attention-grabbing split right at her hip. There were tons more sophisticated looks from Hayden Panettiere, Kimberly Perry and more.
