The 2021 Billboard Music Awards are all about music, but they also brought back a more traditional red carpet, with celebrities and musicians rocking their most over-the-top, celebratory ensembles for the big night. We saw Kehlani looking like the literal fire emoji in a dramatic red gown and the Jonas Brothers hitting the red carpet with their collaborator Marshmello. Machine Gun Kelly painted his tongue black to match his black-and-white manicure, while SZA threw it back to the early ‘00s in her cutout dress with a major slit.

It seems like red was the color of the moment, as many celebs chose the eye-catching shade as their signature color for the event. As always, these celebs brought their formalwear A-game, and we’ve highlighted some of our favorite ‘fits from the 2021 Billboard Music Awards:
