2016 Billboard Music Awards - Arrivals

Ciara was back to host the Billboard Music Awards again with Ludacris and she made sure she was not upstaged by the winners with a string of sensational frocks.

She started off strong on the red carpet in a slinky silver number as she posed for photos with her new fiancee, NFL star Russell Wilson.

And once the show started she kicked things up a notch, facing the Las Vegas crowd in this jaw-dropping dress that was half black gown, half nude body suit.

There was slightly more fabric on display in this thigh-flashing frock, that came complete with a billowing cape.
