Red Carpet Fashion: 2013 AMAs

Any awards show whose winners are based on the general public’s votes (as opposed to an academy of some sort) is bound to be terrible. But if a red carpet is involved, I suck it up because it’s not every day I get to judge one of these things. So just sit back, relax and enjoy some good, bad and 90s American Music Awards red carpet fashion.

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Video Music Awards (Part 1)

I should title this “black carpet fashion” but if you didn’t watch the VMAs you might be confused (the carpet was black…not red). And if you didn’t watch the VMAs, you’re very lucky because I lost several brain cells during the 2 hours (3 if you include the pre show). But let’s get down to it…it’s clear that several stylists are still on summer vacay and these “celebs” had to make due with what they had lying around (or with what people would loan them). Please note I did not include anyone from the Jersey Shore because let’s be honest…they’re all a train wreck right?

So the fashion is not the best I’ve ever seen, but thankfully there were a few people who stepped it up and made my time [somewhat] worth while.

She’s such a cute girl and although normally safe, I do like her red carpet choices. However, this one is NOT one of them. It has a hint of Marchesa but with a darker, witch-like vibe. It’s just not her! Stick to the simple stuff Selena…you’ll thank me later.

Photobucket Victoria Justice in Theia

Zero idea who this is. I’ve seen this dress a million times on the red carpet, usually worn by people I don’t know. It’s the cycle of D-list celeb fashion I guess…

Photobucket Kim Kardashian in Kaufmanfranco

I had to include a photo from behind of this dress…because it’s that hideous. 4 words–Skin colored back panel.

Photobucket Kelly Rowland in Falguno Shane Peacock

There’s alot going on with that dress, it’s not my favorite of the night…but DAMN she looks good.

Photobucket Katy Perry in Atelier Versace

THIS came from the house of Versace? Disappointing…

Photobucket JoJo in Marco Marco

I’m sorry JoJo…when did you become relevant again? I must have missed the memo. I’ll be sure to dig into my Napster playlist circa 2004. Oh and your dress looks cheap.

Photobucket Britney Spears in Moschino

Considering all of her red carpet disasters in the last 5 or so years, this isn’t terrible. I would have just gone with different shoes but this is a step in the right direction.

I’m trying to find something wrong (because that’s just how I work) but I really can’t. This is absolute perfection. The color, the cut…everything. Bravo Beyonce! Oh, and congrats :)

Photobucket Nicki Minaj in…toys?

It looked like her toy chest got angry, attacked her, taped her mouth shut and sent her to the VMAs. And I’ll leave it at that.

Keep checking back for part 2…coming soon!
