Deja vu! Welcome to a special Billboard Music Awards edition of Who Wore It Best?, featuring not one, not two, but three of the most memorable looks from the red carpet outside MGM Grand’s Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Multiple celebs at the star-studded May 17 event showed up in outfits previously worn by other beauties — but who wore them best?
Empire actress Taraji P. Henson, for one, brought the va va voom in a sexy black Alexandre Vauthier gown with leg- and hip-baring cutouts. She teamed the dress with minimal jewelry and soft, wavy hair — not to mention a radiant smile and plenty of confidence.
She wasn’t the first to wear the frock, though. Back in February, Miley Cyrus wore the same Alexandre Vauthier dress to attend another music awards show — the 2015 Grammys. Like 44-year-old Henson, the “Adore You” singer opted for very few accessories, letting the statement-making dress take center stage.
Of course, duplicate looks are nothing new. With so many stars and so many events happening all the time, there are bound to be a few repeats now and then. In fact, there were at least two other celebs at the 2015 BBMAs in outfits that others had worn before.

Kylie Jenner was one of them. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 17, was a definite standout on the red carpet in her black leather Balmain minidress with gold piping, which she paired with black and gold sandals and a carved gold belt.
Model Karolina Kurkova was also a standout in the frock — but she wore it two years earlier at the For Love of Cinema event during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Kurkova, 31, teamed the dress with a different belt and short black boots. She also slicked back her hair in a ponytail, while Jenner opted for long, voluminous waves.

Elsewhere on the carpet, BBMAs co-host Chrissy Teigen took a cue from fellow model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, wearing the same Balmain sequined jumpsuit that that the Mad Max: Fury Road actress had worn to a Carine Roitfeld party in September 2014.
Teigen, 29, styled the striped ensemble with a wide black belt, Anita Ko jewelry, and curly tresses, while Huntington-Whiteley, 28, opted for no belt, simple stud earrings, and a sleek updo.
