Billboard Music Awards 2012: Best-Dressed Celebrities On The Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The stars were out and shining Sunday night for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Despite our red carpet faves like Beyonce, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj skipping the event, there were enough style standouts to keep us happy -- and this year cute couples ruled the red carpet (which was actually white this year).

Alicia Keys and hubby Swizz Beatz were on hand to fete the best of the best in the music industry. Swizz looked sharp in a crispy white suit, while Alicia kept it simple in a curve-hugging black Azzedine Alaia Couture gown. However, Alicia spiced up her classic look with a braided mohawk updo and statement Repossi earrings.

Dressed in a gorgeous white gown and high platform leopard pumps, singer Monica made her way into the awards with her NBA baller husband Shannon Brown.

Soon-to-be-married twosomes, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen along with Wiz Khalifa and his fiance Amber Rose, also provided plenty of adorable moments for the white carpet photogs.

Stepping out solo -- Usher and Jordin Sparks both dressed in bold blue ensembles were the evening's singular style sensations.

Check out all our favorite red carpet moments from the exciting event in the slideshow below.
