Fashion Wrap-Up at the 2011 American Music Awards
I love the fashion choices at music awards shows. While at shows like The Oscars or The Golden Globes, everyone looks vaguely the same because everyone looks really good and everyone is wearing Marchesa and everyone is wearing Armani Prive and it’s so pretty that, quite frankly, I’m bored. But at music awards shows, everyone gets a little more cray cray when it comes to style. Here’s what the stars wore to the American Music Awards last night.

Katy Perry: Katy Perry looked good and somewhat normal last night. Where was the rock-a-billy outfit, where was the candy inspired dress? Katy, clad in pink hair that she wore in a vibrant pompadour up-do wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood Couture gown with bright blue peep-toe shoes. It was demure but still had a hint of Katy Perry ridiculousness.

Selena Gomez: Proving that she’s now this 19-year-old style icon, the poptart wore a backless silver Giorgio Armani gown. She looked better than most celebs twice her age. Good Job Selena Gomez.

Jennifer Lopez: Aside from the nearly sheer body suit she wore during her AMA performance, the star wore a body hugging one-shouldered Zuhair Murad gown, Jimmy Choo shoes and Neil Lane jewelry to walk the red carpet.

Nicki Minaj: Minaj, “normaled up” the teeniest bit last night. Luckily she wasn’t dressed as a Harajuku Barbie, but rather opted for a bright green and humongous Oscar de La Renta silk taffeta gown and paired it with a black lace bodice. She was rocking light pink curls and some strappy black heels that she literally could not walk in. When she accepted one of her awards last night, some member of her entourage had to hold her hand as she made the trek slowly across the stage. Hey Nicki, Mariah Carey called and says she wants her Diva attitude back.

Jennifer Hudson: Hudson is literally the incredible shrinking woman these days. Looking thinner than ever before, the singer wore a metallic cocktail dress by Jenny Packham.

Jenny McCarthy: While she’s not a singer, I have to mention her dress because she wore an adorable plum colored Victoria Beckham dress. I rarely see Victoria Beckham dresses out and about, so I was excited to see how cute her designs actually are.

Taylor Swift: Is it just me, or does Taylor Swift always walks a fine line between a pageant girl and a red carpet star? She does and somehow manages to pull it off. She flat ironed her usually ringlet curls and paired it with a sequined strapless Reem Acra gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and Jimmy Choo shoes.

Katherine Heigl: If you were wondering why Katherine Heigl was at a music show, her hubby Josh Kelley is a country music artist. Anyways, Heigl didn’t really wow last night. Her black Roberto Cavalli gown showed a little too much cleavage and the rippling and ruching in the fabric made her look like an evil mermaid.

Heidi Klum: For someone who works in the fashion world, she sure has a lot of fashion misses. The former supermodel wore a metallic Giles Deacon cocktail dress with cutout details that revealed bright purple undergarments. She looked like an arts and crafts project with tin foil.

Christina Aguilera: Proving that she obviously didn’t get the memo when everyone trashed her outfit at the Michael Jackson tribute concert, Christina Aguilera yet again tried to squeeze into another outfit that didn’t fit her. For her “Moves Like Jagger” performance she wore a white Herve Leger wrap dress. I thought those dresses were designed so everyone looks slender in them, I guess I was wrong.

Mary J. Blige: If anyone else wore this dress I would LOL a little bit, but Mary J. Blige has been around the block and back and is such a veteran that she can do whatever she wants. She wore a one-shoulder flowing leopard print Roberto Cavalli gown that was so over-the-top I’m sure Kris Jenner has one in every color.
