Pink Julep Picks: Best & Worst Dressed at the AMA's

The Best

The stars aligned on the red carpet last night for the American Music Awards and as is the case with most music awards shows, there was a heady mix of fabulous and should-never-be-let-out-in-public fashion with a few boring looks thrown in for good measure. Though I'm not really a fan of Carrie Underwood, she killed it last night and is my pick for best dressed! This fuchsia Abed Mahfouz gown paired with blingin statement earrings, loose blonde hair and a metallic clutch is perfection!

Ginnifer Goodwin was a close 2nd - she understands how to go a little less formal at a music awards show while still having fun and staying chic. Wearing Oscar de la Renta, this look is a nod to 60's icons like Nancy Sinatra and it works. Not only does it work, but it's gorgeous! Winner!

You might be scratching your heads, but I think Nicki Minaj rocked in Monique Lhuillier. The look is chic without loosing any of Nicki's edge. The statement necklace is perfect and who doesn't love a girl that can rock a big blonde fro with a structured evening gown? Amazing!

Taylor Swift's sexy Zuhair Murad mini shows just the right amount of leg while keeping it classy up top. Pairing the dress with strappy gold heels, smokey eyes & bare lips and a simple but sexy up-do, Taylor Swift proved you don't have to look like a total tramp to be sexy... She's grown up so fast!

The Worst

Oh how the mighty have fallen... Remember the days when we all used to try to dress like Christina Aguilera? Well, sadly those days are over - she is my pick for worst dressed at the AMA's. She looks like some abstract version of a drag queen dressed up as a purple mummy for Halloween - it gives a whole new meaning to 'hawt tranny mess.'

I love Gwen Stefani and I want to love this look, but I'm just not there yet. I feel like 1990's Madonna is on the phone and she wants her outfit back...

This is a mess. It's too much gold, too much sheer and who on earth though that ridiculous slit was a good idea? I'm not saying Heidi doesn't look good in the dress - she'd look good in a potato sack. I'm just saying she looks like she lost a bet with Bob Mackey and has to leave the AMA's early to make her performance call in Vegas... All she's missing is a feather head dress.

This is just, no... I can't. It's just awful - for the sake of all things pretty, I hope Jordan Sparks burns this dress and hires a stylist immediately!

From the neck up, Ke$ha looks so pretty... But why is she wearing her grandmother's doily with the shoes she stole from a tranny on Sunset Boulevard? And those nails?!?! Ack! This is an epic fail.

Who were your picks for best and worst dressed at the AMA's?

  1. Totally agree about Nicki, she usually wear so many prints and textures in one outfit so it is nice to see her in something more simple.

    1. And she looks like an edgy, modern bombshell in that dress! I love it! xx
