2014 billboard music awards best dressed kesha lucadris jennifer lopez shakira danica mckellar pete wentz Billboard Music Awards 2014 best dressed: Jennifer Lopez, Kesha, Ludacris and moreThe more informal awards shows can be very hit or miss, red carpet-wise. There are more than a few outfits that look like they were grabbed from the local Goodwill store and thrown on in the limo on the way to the awards.

But there are always a few gems, so here are Zap2it‘s picks for the best dressed of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards.

Above we have (from left), Kesha looking very elegant in a black mermaid-style silhouette — we definitely prefer her more glam than grunge; Danica McKellar rocking a beautiful peachy-pink dress and some rock-hard abs; Pete Wentz in a dapper throwback suit; Ludacris pulling off some amazing colors, which is unusual on a guy on the red carpet; Jennifer Lopez going all Greek goddess on us; and Shakira in a dress that we’re sort of mesmerized by.

Who do you think was the best dressed on the carpet?
