The Best and Worst of the AMAs

Am I the only one who thinks that last weekend’s AMAs fashions were a bit tame? I was looking for the “zing” that would stop everyone in their tracks and break Twitter and Facebook but instead, was treated to a lineup of misses sprinkled with very few hits.

It has been said that a beautiful woman will look good in anything. But even Kerry Washington’s beauty couldn’t blind onlookers in this ensemble. The sleeves look interesting and perhaps the “slip” underneath was a subtle hint of sexiness.  But this dowdy, shapeless dress only begs the question, “Kerry….why?”

Jordin Sparks showed up in an Etro patchwork gown with mesh panels that accentuated her shape but didn’t do much for her skin tone. The ensemble just doesn’t seem to fit in with the AMAs and was too low-key such a talented performer. The southern beauty did not make the grade in this otherwise blah, Bohemian getup.

Then there was I want to be kind, so I’ll let you ponder this one.

So now you’re asking, who did it right?

Except for the screaming neon, Nicki Minaj was subtle and covered, which, no doubt, shocked many viewers and attendees, so we’re giving her the On My Way award. Looking hot in a figure-hugging Monique Lhuillier gown and her signature bleach blonde hair, the singer deviated from her unique style and showed us a softer side. Who knew that she could actually look like the girl you could take to the prom?


We have to give it up to Ke$ha for Most Improved. Before taking to the stage for a drum-filled, voodoo-ish performance, she walked the red carpet in this feminine, light peach, lacy number. We haven’t seen her like this before so she deserves an A for improvement.



Kelly Rowland wore it best and simply glowed in this formfitting studded Naeem Khan dress. The polished and sophisticated print and capped sleeves showed off her svelte shape and height. Glittery shoes and silver-coloured bangles complemented her outfit and her hair was on point in soft, cascading curls. Well done, Ms. Rowland!


Thoughts? Who wore it best or worst at the AMAs?
