The YBF set topped off a busy event-filled weekend at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.  We've got full coverage from the red carpet to personal pic stashes inside...

A night filled with awards for those who have ruled the airwaves over the past year describes last night's event.  The iHeartRadio Music Awards also brought out those heavy on the music scene.

KeKe Palmer showed up in a vintage style blue sequin halter dress and silver sandals.  She topped off her look with a purple lip and a top knot.  While she definitely gets an A for effort, we're not totally sold on the look:

Work Meagan!  Are we feeling her new Nia Long-esque 'do?


Speaking of new 'do's....

Zendaya strutted in rocking a red crushed velvet suit and boots by Haider Ackermann.

She posed it up with Linda Perry, but we can't decide how we feel about this risky look of hers.

We do know how we feel about this face of hers.  She is beat to the GAWDS.  And guess what, she did it all by herself.  The gorgeous CoverGirl spokeswoman has been doing her own makeup lately, and chick SLAYS.  No need to pay a makeup artist when you're beating your own face better than most.  Bloop.

"Empire" hottie Serayah looked amazing in her Nicolas Jebran mini dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes and Edie Parker clutch.  Hot.

Serayah's homie Karrueche was there to handle the award show's social media as the Snapchat Ambassador.  She arrived in this red leather Thomas Wylde mini dress that made us go hmmm....

Cutire Jhene Aiko, who is now one half of the duo Twenty 88, arrived in a 70's style jumpsuit and cute beach waves.

Jhene's other half Big Sean showed up in a green and blue flannel coat.  It's impossible to tell what the weather actually was with this array of looks from folks.

As for Iggy Azalea, she showed up to perform her new song "Team."  And made sure to let y'all know that engagement ring from her Laker baller fiancé Nick Young aint going nowhere.  She made sure the cameras on the red carpet caught a glimpse of her huge sparkler that she's still wearing despite the cheating controversy.

According to Gilbert Arenas, the wedding is still going down.  And he would know because he says he's going to the bachelor party.  He told media yesterday, while hitting up the Clippers game, that the two will be "just fine" by the time the wedding rolls around.  He would know -- he and Laura Govan are the king and queen of breakups to makeups.

UPDATE: Speaking of Laura, Nick responded saying:

Breezy had us thinking he was Miguel for a hot minute.  Nope, wrong crooner.  Chris was there to take over the stage last night with a hot performance.

Omarion took a break from daddy duty to show up on the carpet.  He and longtime girlfriend Apryl Jones just welcomed their newborn baby girl, who joins toddler big brother Megaa.

Wiz Khalifa smokes so much he thought he actually had a blunt in his hand.


We kid.

"Empire" star TaRhonda Jay served up feathers on feathers.  Are we feeling it?

Drake's daddy STAYS in the mix doesn't he?  He better come thru with the silver suit!

By the way, Drizzy won Hip Hop Song of the Year for "Hotline Bling."

Kat Graham took a serious risk that we're not too sure if it paid off.  Wide legs, ruffles, frills, it has us feeling like we're watching Selena.  And not in the best way.

2 Chainz popped up in his leopard coat with his cup.  Bishop Don Juan would be proud.
