Ciara Slays At The 2016 Billboard Music Awards In A Glittery Gown — PHOTOS

This is hardly Ciara's first music awards, but this time she's switching up her style a bit. Hitting the red carpet solo, Ciara wore a sleek silver gown for her first 2016 Billboard Music Awards outfit. There's no doubt in my mind that there will be tons of different styles worn by the singer tonight, but the thigh-high slit was one heck of a way to start it all off.

Instead of just performing or walking on stage to receive and award, Ciara is hosting this year's event and she's doing it in style. It will be a long night of outfits and backstage changes for the star, but her first look of the night was absolutely gorgeous. She stepped onto the red carpet wearing a sleek silver gown that fit her like a glove, which sticks to the silver color scheme that she's been rocking lately. It is just the beginning of the night though, so you never know what she'll wear next.

Don't get me wrong though, her first outfits was absolutely gorgeous. She paired the fitted dress with a laid back, low bun hairstyle to make for a laid back meets chic style. Ciara might have admitted that she was nervous about hosting the event, but you couldn't tell by looking at her on the red carpet.

This dress fits so perfectly that it looks like it was painted on. She's always pulling out the stops when it comes to thigh-high slits, and this was no different.

Ugh, she is style goals.

She could've easily made this into an edgy look with a down-'do, but her casual low-bun took it in a much more laid-back direction.

Her first on-stage look was just as daring as her sparkly, red carpet dress.

So gorgeous!
