Shoes topped the charts at the Billboard Music Awards.

The event, held Sunday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, drew a powerful list of musicians and celebrity guests — and they didn’t disappoint when it came to their footwear picks.

Taylor Swift, who took home 11 awards, including top female artist and top country artist, donned strappy metallic platform sandals by Jimmy Choo.

Jennifer Lopez, who performed on stage with Pit Bull, chose gold Christian Louboutin pumps for her walk down the (atypical) blue carpet. The style was particularly noticeable under her sheer, flowing Zuhair Murad dress.

“Call Me Maybe” sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, who received the top pop song honors, opted for a black patent and soft gold mirrored leather pump by Gio Dev.

Miley Cyrus, who announced that her new single “We Can’t Stop” will be unveiled June 3, sported black Givenchy peep-toe heels, paired with her Balmain jumpsuit.

Louboutin got a nod from the male performers, too. Will.i.am (William Adams) rocked a spiked look from the designer before taking the stage with Justin Bieber.
