Red Carpet Fashion
American Music Awards 2011
The American Music Awards took place this weekend in Los Angeles, where Taylor Swift once again beat out the competition to take home the 'Best Female' and 'Artist of the Year' Award. Other big winners of the night were British songbird Adele and rapstress Nicki Minaj. We only get to see the show a day later here in SA. I waited for one good fashion moment throughout it, but alas, there was none. This is what went down on the AMA 2011 red carpet.
The Short Hemline
|Kimberly Perry from the 'Band Perry' wears a black and yellow lacey dress by Bottega Veneta, which you may have seen before on Emma Stone. Actress Jane Levy looked sweet in a strapless lace champagne dress. The satin platforms are too bridal. Russian supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna added some much needed colour to the carpet in a red long-sleeved lace dress by Emilio Pucci. Jennifer Lopez wore a black embroidered gown by Zuhair Murad - I'm not so keen on the the contrast of the stark black against the nude illusion bodice.|
The Longer Lengths
|I found these first two looks most interesting on the red carpet. Keltie Colleen wore a black bustier and dusty pink ruffled skirt. The actress added a top hat and chunky tie-up boots to her ringmaster rock-chick look. Karmin vocalist Amy Heidemann was retro-cute in a purple sheer blouse with black striped skirt and red accessories. Red shoulder-bows, crazy heels and pin-up hairdo complete her whimsical look. Katy Perry's pink hair and colourful block headpiece took the attention off her Asian-inspired Vivienne Westwood gown. I don't know how the bright blue heels fit in with it. Fellow pink-tressed singer, Nicki Minaj was rather tame (for Nicki Minaj standards) in a black lace bodice and massive harlequin green taffeta skirt, by Oscar de la Renta.|
What did you think of the outfits at this year's AMA's? All I can add is that there was a major shoe intervention needed. Someone please dial Jimmy Choo.
