First, for allowing her face to be photographed from straight on, and second, for wearing a really eye-catching and kind of bizarre dress. It’s a big music awards show, so the expectation for any musician or singer is that they’re going to show up in something that will get the olds shaking their heads and wondering what’s wrong with the youth. This fits the bill. Mind you, we don’t think it’s a pretty dress or a chic one, but it’s a very photogenic and eye-catching one, which is really all she was shooting for here, most likely. No one really shows up at the Billboard Music Awards thinking they’re gonna out-chic their contemporaries. It’s all about grabbing that camera time and this dress does that for her without making her look ridiculous or like she’s wearing a costume.
