Mary J. Blige always brings glamor when she hits the red carpet and tonight at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards was no different.
The ‘Family Affair’ singer – who is set to perform tonight and receive the Billboard Icon Award – wore a sultry long-sleeved black dress with a midsection cutout and a high-low skirt by JUlien Macdonald. The 51-year-old hitmaker styled the chic number with a pair of black leather ankle strap sandals with pointed toes. She also added oversized hoops, a watch, bracelets and several rings.
The Billboard Music Awards are back in Las Vegas, celebrating music’s biggest stars and Diddy takes the stage as host. The BBMAs will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will air at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, in addition to the live broadcast on Peacock.
