The Wackiest Styles of Billboard's Past

Call us crazy, but we think the Billboard Awards often trumps the Oscars in terms of exciting red carpet fashion. Forget safe, classic gowns--the biggest and brightest of the music industry opt for scandalously low necklines, micro-minis, and vivid color and we can't get enough! Over the years we've seen some truly out-there styles--from backless (and frontless) dresses to feather Swimmies and just about everything in between. While we anxiously anticipate Sunday's 2013 Billboard Music Awards (on ABC at 8/7c) red carpet, let's all look back at the most outrageous styles from the past.
