Head turner: Karol G raised eyebrows on Sunday night as she hit the red carpet at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards in a very racy sheer gown

Karol G made a bold statement on the red carpet at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, turning heads in a flesh-toned transparent mini dress that left little to the imagination. The Colombian hitmaker, 32, opted for a unique and daring outfit that showcased her bare bust, creating a truly eye-popping display. Paired with nude heels, Karol G completed the look with smokey eye makeup and platinum blonde locks styled in a wet look.

The Grammy Award-nominated singer didn't just make waves with her fashion choice but also stole the spotlight during her performance at the event. Karol kicked off the night by performing Qlona, Labios Mordidos, and Ojos Ferrari. During her performance, she showcased her toned midriff in a white bra and sheer sweatpants, delivering a visually striking show in a shallow body of water.

Joined by a shirtless male dancer, the duo heated up the stage with steamy choreography, including moments where Karol laid back in the water while dancers circled and splashed her. In one memorable scene, she was hoisted up into the air by two dancers, creating a mesmerizing performance.

Karol G's talent and stage presence were duly recognized at the awards ceremony. She took home the Top Latin Female Artist and Latin Touring Artist awards, triumphing over international heavy-hitters like ROSALÍA, Shakira, RBD, and Daddy Yankee.

While Karol G's daring fashion statement and captivating performance grabbed attention, Taylor Swift emerged as a major winner of the night, earning 10 Billboard Awards, including the highest honor of Top Artist. Despite facing tough competition, Swift expressed her gratitude to fans in a video message, acknowledging their role in her success.

On the other hand, controversial country star Morgan Wallen outshone Taylor Swift by earning 11 awards, including Top Male Artist and Top Hot 100 Artist. Mariah Carey received a special honor, the Chart Achievement Award, presented by her twin children Moroccan and Monroe, for her holiday classic "All I Want For Christmas."

The 2023 Billboard Music Awards showcased a unique format, with music performances and winner acceptance speeches shared through Billboard's website and social media channels, reflecting the changing landscape of award ceremonies.
