Julianne Hough is one of the many celebrities showing off skin at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
The America’s Got Talent judge was asked to present at the annual music awards show, which was hosted by Kelly Clarkson. Hough posted her red carpet look on her Instagram page to her 4.5 million followers. For the night, the Dancing with the Stars alum wore a sparkly bralette with matching shorts and a blazer. Hough also wore metallic pointy-toe heels and a blonde bob. The look showed off Hough’s toned abs at the event. The look received more than 40,000 likes from Hough’s followers and more than 200 likes.
“Love you this in Pic!! That outfit is on point,” one follower said.
“You can literally wear any hairstyle and look fantastic,” another exclaimed.
Hough announced on Tuesday that she was going to be a presenter at the awards show. The dancer showed a promotional image for the ceremony to her Instagram followers.

Hough’s husband, Brooks Laich, wasn’t in attendance as the Safe Haven actress made her solo walk on the red carpet.

“It really transformed my experience and gave me a way to express myself,” she said.
“[Dance] actually breaks the barrier so you get confidence within yourself, and it’s for nobody else but you.”
