Red Carpet - American Music Awards 2013

Red Carpet Fashion
American Music Awards 2013

The annual American Music Award's took place last night in LA, where the crazies contained themselves and the red carpet remained pretty calm and uneventful. This is a round up of the must-see outfits from the event. Click on the pictures for a larger view.

Katy Perry made a sweeping appearance in a black and white spotted ballgown adorned with floral embroidery by Oscar de la Renta. Adding the cuteness factor, she carried an Olympia La Tan book clutch. Rihanna went risqué in a black bustier with sheer tulle and lace skirt by Jean Paul GaultierKe$ha should be commended for cleaning up this well. The usually disheveled singer looked quite refined in a black Michael Costello gown with ruffled waist detail and one-shouldered bodice. But it was her pastel rainbow hair stole the show. Jennifer Lopez dazzled in a sheer bronzed embellished mermaid dress by Zuhair Murad.

TV host Keltie Knight doubled up as an ice skater in this glittery Sherri Hill dress with playful feathered skirt. Taylor Swift smoldered in a shiny gold Julian MacDonald mini dress with illusion triangle cut-out bodice and strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Carly Steel wore a bottle green embellished Hervé Léger dress. Giuliana Rancic looked chic in a metallic bronze and black lace Three Floor dress with contrast straps.

Teen Scene
Zendaya Coleman wore a rather shapeless white asymmetrical tunic and trousers by Donna Karan, with sky high heels by Christian Louboutin. Maia Mitchell exuded poise in this chic little black Armani dress and cuffed heels. Kendall Jenner went super short in a slitted white Keepsake mini dress accented by a silver statement necklace by Dylanlex Falkor and Manolo Blahnik shoes. Her sister Kylie sported a white Maiyet tank, black velvet Giambattista Valli pants, a quilted bag and pointy-toe ankle boots.

Colour Shots
Rachel Smith picked a purple and red printed Monique Lhuillier gown with banded waist. Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz kept things simple in a tangerine V-neck Raoul dress with gold tassel necklace. Jennifer Hudson was appealing in a punchy orange and pink asymmetrical dress by Dior, along with Charlotte Olympia sandals. Ariana Grande glimmered in a fully sequined red strapless dress by Dolce & Gabbana.

Diva Dresses
Jordin Sparks posed in a gold studded Jovani Couture dress with black slitted maxi skirt and Schutz strappy sandals. Ciara had cameras in a spin with her very see-through panel printed J.Mendel dress. Daisy Fuentes was elegant in a black and white Tadashi Shoji gown. Zoe Saldana wore a patterned one-shouldered dress by Roland Mouret featuring satin side panels.

Grey Area
Kelly Osbourne opted for a girly ice grey Rami Al Ali gown with houndstooth printed bodice and full tulle embellished skirt. I think Lady Gaga tried to shock us by proving just how decent she can actually look. She is pictured in an shimmering silver Versace dress. Emma Roberts was wrapped in a metallic smokey grey strapless Lanvin gown, accessorized with a magenta clutch and Casadei pumps.

Jaimie Alexander was kitted out in a sequined black Giorgio Armani jumpsuit with halter straps and cut-out neckline. Naya Rivera had tongues wagging in this daring key-hole cut-out Michael Kors gown with long train and gold cuffs. Heidi Klum went with a 20's lingerie inspired Marchesa look featuring a lace chiffon bodice and fringed skirt. 

White Out
Nicole Richie stunned in a sexy white cut-out gown by Emilio Pucci, accented by a chunky gold necklace and fringed clutch. Miley Cyrus was surprisingly sophisticated in a crisp white Versus Versace ankle-cropped suit with safety pins. Christina Aguilera polished up in a slinky white Maria Lucia Hohan gown with diamond side cut-outs. Sparkly Louboutin sandals, a Jimmy Choo clutch and orange tan complete her outfit.

Who was your Best and Worst Dressed at the AMA's 2013?

Coco said...

Dear Sam,
I'll be straightforward as always:
First row: thumbs up except for Rihanna
Second row: get a personal stylist!
Third row: cool except for Kendall Jenner
Fourth row: Ciara pulls off that dress awesomely. The others acceptable,
Fifth row: splendid Kelly O, the rest to be forgotten
Sixth and seventh row: living proof that having a perfect body doesn't equate to having good taste.
Was I too mean?

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Seems you had a nice time at the wedding. Mine weekend was fine as well, just rest, relax and a bit of shopping!:) Btw, thanks for the post since I havent the chance to see all the looks and this is the first time I can see them. Honestly I am pretty disappointed you know, there isnt any in particular that I heart lol! Maybe I would (surprising myself!) say Miley Cirus cause I really like the simple choice of the white suit, she is really sophisticated. Also I like Lady Gaga, well I am not a big fab of the gown but in this way she looks really stunning. Also I like Naya Rivera, the MK gown is to die for. Who I dislike? Kelly Osbourne!!XD Kisses dear, have a great week ahead! xo

Alexandra Zakharova said...

Those photographs are adorable, Sam! I think those fashion designers would never run out of beautiful ideas of fabulous gowns for all those movie and pop stars. We would always have something to be impressed by)))
Wish you a blessed day ahead!

Lisa B said...

Keshas hair is amazing I love it! Her dress is just OK, but amazing for her to be looking that good. I love Ciara and Naya Rivera. I think Naya looked ridiculously stunning! Kendall and Kylie looked good too and pleasantly surprised by Mileys choice. She's ACTUALLY wearing clothes!!! Who'd believe that.

Melo Limparfaite said...

I have to say I like Miley on this one (rare I see her with clothes anyway LOL)

Francesca said...

I love Ariana Grande's look, her dress is stunning! She is my pick for best dressed, and worst dressed I would have to say Rihanna. On a side note, my favorite performer was Justin Timberlake! :)


Stephanie G said...

wow ke$ha cleaned up so well i didn't recognise her ;) obsessed with ciara's dress - so intricately detailed!

sheena said...

These ladies look stunning..i wish..i could have seen at least one of them in Indian ethnic clothes........;)

Nora Armani said...

Thanks for sharing these looks! I haven't seen the AMA's, so it's nice to see the outfits in this post. I like many of them. Also, thank you for your kind words. Have a great day dear.

Fashion-Bridge said...

How one is supposed to choose from stunning and stunning?:) Yet I think I managed Rihanna and Swift looked ABSOLUTELY UTTERLY Gorgeous~!



Ivana said...

For once, I really have a hard time picking a favorite, since there's not one look that would make me go "wow". I don't know why, but this year's AMA red carpet felt a little bit underwhelming. If I should pick one, I'll go with Nicole Richie, her look is so sleek and feminine, and it's a nice contrast to all the crazy things happening on the other leading ladies :)

Have a lovely week, Sam!

xx Ivana

Hello lovely Sam,
I LOVE this post! Especially since I got to watch the AMA's yesterday, however, I did miss the red carpet. Ke$ha looks gorgeous! I LOVE her dress! It's beautiful! Kendall Jenner looks gorgeous in her white! I LOVE it! Ariana Grande looks stunning as always! She's such a beauty! Daisy Fuentes looks beautiful. Gaga looks amazing! I LOVE her dress and she looks beautiful in it! It's nice to see her tone it down a bit! :) And Christina A. looks gorgeous in her white!

Excellent post love! It's nice to see the different dresses that the celebs wore! Hope you're doing well! :)

Really elegant and chic

Arrow said...

Kesha's dress is amazing!

Busola Coutts said...

A lot of surprises this year but mostly good. Ke$ha totally cleaned up nicely and looked great. I commend Miley for toning it down for the red carpet and she looked so classy.

There was sheer, lace and embroideries this year which i liked a lot but not so much of the pastel hair colors seen on a few of the ladies. Anyway it was a good show, loved most of the outfits and you my dear have done a great job on this post. Love it!

Jayme and Mendi said...

Wow, Lady Gaga looks amazing! And thanks for Miley keeping it classy! :-)
