Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner were among the stars pictured on the 2019 Billboard Music Awards red carpet.

Some of the industry’s biggest names gathered at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday for the annual awards show.

Swift – who arrived with at least two of her pet cats – wore a lilac, thigh-length dress with high collar and lace sleeves.

Her dress – designed by Raisa Vanessa – was teamed with matching heels.
