Photogenic model, recording artist, and socialite Amber Rose, originally known as Amber Levonchuck, was seen sporting some rather large shades at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday evening.
Sporting all black and her signature buzzed blonde hair and dark lipstick, she and husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa, appeared on the red carpet all decked out in designer duds. Khalifah wore black ripped jeans paired with a white shirt and jacket.
But it was the over-sized sunglasses that got everyone talking.
Nah honestly help me out people… Is that Amber Rose or a manikin with Sun Glasses on?! pic.twitter.com/N5yvTifmUK

The look, inspired by Pharrell’s Monclear collaboration, sure made a statement, to say the least.
The 30-year old was first noticed by rapper Kanye West in Ludicris’ music video “What Girls Like.” They dated from 2008 to 2010, during which time she gained additional fame. She also appeared in a Louis Vuitton print advertisement for Lamon Coleman’s line of sneakers, a long way from when she worked as a stripper at Sue’s Rendezvous at the age of 19.
Rose is currently working on a secret project with friend and make-up artist Priscilla Ono.
Presently, Rose and husband Khalifa have a child together, Sebastian Taylor Thomaz, born in February 2013. They have two homes, one in Los Angeles and one in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania.
Other highlights at the Sunday evening Billboard Music Awards included performances by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and a hologram performance by Michael Jackson, singing a new hit song, “Save to the Rhythm.”
“Amazing!! Best billboards performance of the night #RIPMJ,” a fan tweeted.
