There was no shortage of wow-worthy attire ambling about the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, but Demi Lovato’s 2018 Billboard Music Awards look proves she’s a long lost Cheetah Girl. The songstress looked fierce in a flowy, floor-length, cheetah print gown, which was complete with a matching empire waist belt, a set of statement-making bell sleeves, and a plunging V-shaped neckline. The 25-year-old accessorized with massive gold hoop earrings, a few gold rings, and black peep-toe pumps. Needless to say, the woman looked like one of the most #Confident stars on the carpet (and her stance proves she probably was).
The sheer gown Lovato stunned with on the red carpet was designed by Dior. As for her beauty look, Lovato kept the vibes similarly fierce and her brown eyes absolutely popped, thanks to mile-high lashes, shimmery gold eyeshadow, and a cheek combo of golden-hued highlighter and a healthy dose of matte bronzer to create a sharp contour. The singer’s lips were painted in a neutral beige tone with a super-subtle sheen. As for her hair, Lovato’s jet black tresses were slicked back into a perfectly executed rendition of the oh-so-popular wet hair look. Finally, Lovato’s nails were painted a nude-beige color, only complementing her whole look.
All in all, Lovato is serving up total Cheetah Girls vibes here. Please don’t mind me, I’m just playing the entire Cheetah Girls soundtrack in the background.
Take a peek at Lovato’s Instagram feed, and you’ll notice that she’s been lounging in leggings more than she’s been dressing to the nines as of late — a phase which has had me missing her glam red carpet looks. (Though I’m so here for the athleiseure, too!) Most recently, the raven-haired beauty was notably absent from the 2018 Met Gala, which she confirmed was a result of an unfortunate foot fracture from falling down the stairs. (Ouch!) I was happy to see the actress back on her feet — so to speak, and quite literally — without a crutch or foot brace in sight at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. (Kudos to her for strutting around in heels!)
