The 40th Anniversary of the American Music Awards aired Sunday night on ABC with memorable performances, award wins, fashion wins and notable fashion losses. Here’s a rundown of the winners with a few fashion winners and losers below… (you be the judge…)
Jordin Sparks hits the red carpet at the 40th annual American Music Awards showing off her killer bod in a sexy, skin-baring printed dress layered over black fishnet. Paired with a slick ponytail, Sparks is giving a majorly sleek, just-vampy-enough look.
Kerry Washington arrives on the 2012 American Music Awards red carpet. Gladiators REJOICE! ‘Scandal’s Olivia Pope, looked gorgeous on the red carpet wearing a yellow lace dress from Stella McCartney. What do you think of her look?
Golden delight or Not Quite Right? R&B Songstress Brandy and Pop’s Provocateur Pink arrive dazzling in gold, but something is missing with both looks. Brandy’s look is far from “gold star” rating while Pink’s look is giving some sort of modern day Roman-esqe soldier.
Maybe Pink coordinated her look from an unlikely source….like Kim Kardashian? After all, Kim did debut a similar Kardashian look in blue earlier this year…
Who do you think rocked this stylish, floor length frock better? Pink or Kim Kardashian?
Nicki Minaj has the internet buzzing over this neon green gown. This look is a bit more mature for Nicki who’s known for donning multicolored hair and hot pink chicken wing necklaces. But alas, it is the American Music Awards. What do you think?
Taylor Swift arrives wearing a long-sleeved Zuhair Murad mini featured a seriously sexy open back and gorgeous gold detailing. While the star may have stayed away from her signature, (a shimmering, strapless gown silhouette), she still opted for a little gold sparkle, giving us a hint of Taylor in a whole new sexy style.
Carrie Underwood opted for a wine colored Abed Mahfouz frock for the red carpet and walked away looking stunning…
“Call Me Maybe” singer Carlie Rae Jepson opted for more all-over shimmer in a halter dress by Gomez Gracia. With a floor-skimming length and a body-hugging silhouette, she manages to work the formal number without making it look like she’s on her way to prom.
Kelly Rowland went for a subtile icy look with Naeem Kahn on the red carpet. The “Ice” singer went for an overall sleek look to combat the graphic detail dress.
