Music just celebrated one of its hottest nights: The Billboard Awards! Taylor Swift (left) walked the red carpet in a strapless sequined Elie Saab gown, which she teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and punchy red lipstick. Our June cover girl took home two of the night’s biggest award—top album and top country artist! "The impact of an album is all determined by the fans," Swift told the audience when she picked up her first. "You've just given me another reason to be completely in love with you." Rihanna (right) also scored big at the event, taking home the radio artist of the year and top female artist honors. Before performing "S&M" with Britney Spears, she posed for photos in a sexy white Max Azria suit.
