The red (or rather white) carpet turned a darker shade at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards with plenty of celebs opting to wear black to the event. Music awards tend to attract the weird and wonderful, but at the Billboards it was all about the demure. Although it wasn't all safe - there was plenty to look at in the details. Leading the pack was Beyonce in a long-sleeved black minidress by Lanvin - I love the encrusted crystal brooch detail. Kylie Minogue and Fergie also worked the LBD in Alexander McQueen and Herve Leger respectively. Nicole Kidman was in attendance with hubby Keith Urban in a rather yawn-worthy black lace and beaded Dolce & Gabbana number. Adding something different to the mix was Taylor Swift in a sequin strapless gown by Elie Saab, and Kelly Rowland who brought some bold colour in a fuchsia pink body con dress from Herve Leger.
