American Music Awards Best And Worst Dressed
Neon Tommy reported
Pop culture and music fans will no doubt be talking about who won what category at the 2011 American Music Awards the following morning, but they’ll also be talking about who wore what.
Some people may look to the red carpet to see which big names have arrived, but others see it as the ultimate fashion runway.
Although it seemed as if a lot of the usual celebrities, like Beyonce, Rihanna, and even controversial teen superstar Miley Cyrus, were missing from the red carpet, there were still plenty of others that graced the awards ceremony.
Among the best dressed were Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, Nicki Minaj, and Katherine Hiegl, some of who were winners of their categories.
Heidi Klum wore a metallic mini with floral patterned perforations by Giles Deacon. The "Project Runway" host and mother of four may have had cutouts that revealed a little bit of skin, but she kept it tasteful, unlike another fellow mother (ahem, J.Lo). Dressed similarly was Sarah Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy on TV’s favorite comedy "Modern Family." The 20-year-old actress wore a strapless mini dress by Amen that was embellished with sparkling sequins.
Katherine Hiegl, who presented an award for favorite country album, wore a Roberto Cavalli dress. The floor length gown had a plunging neckline and frontal slit that was subtly sexy. The simple and understated gown was asymmetrically adorned with sequins on one shoulder.
Taylor Swift, who went home with three awards, dazzled in her full-length Reem Acra gown. The sequined gold number fit like a glove and emanated the golden girl’s sweet style. Although the 21-year-old singer looked elegant, she plays it on the safe side a little too often. Fellow award winner Nicki Minaj also looked fabulously fierce at the AMAs. This is perhaps the 28-year-old rapper tamest outfit, but nonetheless, she made a statement in her bubblegum pink hair and an Oscar De La Renta gown. The black lace bodice was completed by a full emerald silk taffeta skirt.
