Emo core should honestly be a red carpet theme from now on.
Live in Las Vegas, the Billboard Music Awards 2022 is back with no shortage of looks as seen on our favorite stars who wore the most unexpected outfits on the red carpet. Let’s be real, other than the performances, what else is there to look forward to? We’re missing our Filipinas though, like big winners Olivia Rodrigo, R&B singer H.E.R., and rapper Saweetie. But not to worry, because they all took home the bag! From Doja Cat’s gold pasties to Machine Gun Kelly bringing emo back, here are the most snatched outfits at Billboard Music Awards 2022.
1. DOJA CAT IN SCHIAPARELLI

Welcome to Planet Her. This is probably one of Doja Cat’s most memorable red carpet outfits, just peep the glam!
2. MEGAN THEE STALLION IN MUGLER
Finally, a look from our stallion girl that isn’t latex! Gotta say, she looks divine in feminine silhouettes like this custom Mugler piece with elements borrowed from their Spring/Summer 1998 collection.

Make way for the black cat. Chloe Bailey wears a leather cut-out dress by Valdrin Sahiti at the Billboard Music Awards 2022 red carpet.
4. KALI UCHIS IN GCDS
Reppin’ all the spicy women out there, Kali Uchis shows up in the red carpet in a red dress and a red mini bag by GCDS. Pro tip: dress like the carpet for good luck!
5. JANET JACKSON IN THOM BROWNE
Legends only. Janet Jackson presented the Billboard Icon Award for 2022 in a glorious Thom Browne suit. Absolute perfection.
6. DOVE CAMERON IN ASHLYN
Okay, we get it. It’s not for everyone, but we’re definitely here for Dove Cameron in a red avant garde dress by Ashlyn New York. A very timely choice amidst the recent pro-life controversy whether it was intended or not.
7. MARI COPENY IN SHAY OLIVER
The real big winner of the night is none other than Mari Copeny a.k.a. Little Miss Flint. She’s the youngest recipient of the Changemaker Award at 14 years old. When she said, “people don’t take election seriously,” we felt THAT.
8. KYLIE JENNER IN BALMAIN
The moment we saw this naked dress on the Balmain runway last season, our gut already knew one of the KarJenners were going to secure the look.
9. ALEXA ZB
AleXa ZB was the only K-pop star that attended the Billboard Music Awards 2022 red carpet. Despite fans expecting her performance, she still showed up in an outfit that’s straight out of Blade Runner 2049. Copying her blue pigtails RN.
10. LIZA KOSHY IN AREA
Liza Koshy in a belt-slash-mini skirt? A look.
11. FLORENCE WELCH IN GUCCI
Florence Welch is a living, breathing painting, and her red carpet outfit at the Billboard Music Awards 2022 proves it.
12. GIVEON IN BOTTEGA VENETA
Giveon has been on our radar for quite some time, and his Bottega Veneta look at the BBMAs 2022 just earned him the crush if the night award. Are we wrong though?
13. MACHINE GUN KELLY IN D&G AND MEGAN FOX IN DAVID KOMA
People say they’re tired of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly at this point, but you gotta admit that they’re having loads of fun on the red carpet. Emo core is finally back.
14. SHEENSEEA IN DIPETSA
Not only is Jamaican singer Sheenseea breaking records (her single has now surpassed more than four million streams on Spotify), but she’s also out here to give us unconventional looks.
15. BURNA BOY IN AN AIR-BRUSHED SUIT
Can you believe it’s Burna Boy’s debut at the Billboard Music Awards 2022? Hard to grasp after seeing his leather air-brushed look that’s crazy good.
16. TEYANA TAYLOR IN SKIMS
Everytime Teyana Taylor is on the red carpet, you know she’s about to raise hell. Those Balenciaga chunky boots and Stephanie Desiree pants are a match made in heaven.
17. TY DOLLA SIGN IN NATALIA FEDNER
Channeling Lenny Kravitz, Ty Dolla Sign goes for a little skin in metallic knitwear layered underneath his suit.
