The 2017 Billboard Music Awards is another opportunity for celebs to think outside the fashion box.

Like the Grammys, red carpets graced by musical artist after musical artist tend to see the whole style spectrum—from the chic and comfortable to the custom couture and crazy. Will we see Nicki Minaj in a blue, bejeweled catsuit like in 2011? Or someone, or many, with no pants? Most likely. This is an event where you can expect the unexpected when it comes to fashion.

Case in point: Vanessa Hudgens. The award show co-host was a fashion plate wrapped in a literal bow for us to awe over on the red carpet. While we're expecting several outfit changes from the High School Musical alum, she started the night off in a pale-pink, over-the-shoulder Marchesa gown with an asymmetrical cut-out. She paired the ultra-feminine gown with a short, wavy bob for a look she called "chic and sexy."

Baywatch star Alexandra Daddario also impressed, modernizing an old Hollywood glam look in a gold-and-black Vivienne Westwood dress. Unlike Vanessa, the actress opted for a one-shoulder strap paired with another exaggerated off-the-shoulder sleeve. Very on-trend! Was she comfortable? "I'm duct-tapped into it," Alex told E! News' Jason Kennedy. What we do to look good. 

The men also turned up in their most dapper. Leading the pack? John Legend, course, in a navy, checked suit and black Gucci loafers.
