AMAs Best and worst dressed

It was the American Music Awards this weekend and if you are like me then you love to watch the red carpet entrances. Normally at music awards we see stars dressing outrageously to get themselves noticed, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga especially. Last night's AMAs didn't have anyone really standing out as being over the top but there were a few outfits that made me smile (and a few cringe worthy entries as well).

My Best Dressed List:

Taylor Swift's long sleeved golden mini-dress by Zuhair Murad featured a seriously sexy open back and gorgeous gold detailing. While the star may have stayed away from her signature long shimmering strapless gown she still opted for a little gold sparkle, giving us a hint of Taylor in a whole new sexy style. She really looked beyond gorgeous, proving that you can shine on a red carpet without showing off too much skin.

Carrie Underwood, I loved this dress on the AMAs red carpet. She wore a lacy purple floor-length gown that was the perfect fit and colour for her. The dress is an Abed Mahfouz number and loved how she matched it with a red and gold clutch, two colours i would personally not put together.

Carly Rae Jepsen's floor-length dress of pale pink sparkles seems to be every ones favourite from the night. I'm not a huge fan of Carly but I have to agree that she does look stunning. The dress is by Gomez Garcia which she has paired with a Edie Parker clutch and beautiful hot pink nails.

Finally, just because it's Christina Aguilera and I think she is amazing, I have to include her stunning floor length gown. She looked confident and curvy in Pamella Roland, opting for a  blond bombshell bob. The singer wore plenty of bling and paired the soft tones of her dress with some bedazzled pumps. I really admire this girl and find her to be a great role model.

My Worst Dressed List:

Nicki Minaj's dress wasn't too bad but the colour ruined it for me. I'm not a fan of neon at all and just felt this dress just didn't look good on her. The dress was a Monique Lhuillier gown. Her second dress, a floor length black lace gown, that she wore on stage to collect her award was gorgeous. Unfortunately, she went down hill again wearing a Puffy Marshmallow vibe during her performance!

I love Pink, but her colour choice at the 2012 AMAs was a little dull.  The dress was made by Catherine Deane and unfortunately everyone is going on about how Kim Kardashian wore the same dress but in blue only last month. She more than made up for it by showing off every inch of her gorgeous abs during her performance though. That girl can sing.

Phoebe Price. To be honest, I'm not sure who this woman is but I saw her picture while browsing on line and thought 'No. Just, no'.  Apparently she is a socialite/singer in America who turned up to last night’s event in a over the top gold getup that made her guilty of all kinds of fashion faux pas. You should always go for ONE statement piece, and hers was comprised of many, which made her look really tacky especially  with those huge chanel earrings and gold blazer.
Finally, Jordan Sparks. She wore a Etro gown featuring netted long-sleeves, eclectic patchwork prints and sheer panels. Jordan tied the look together with a simple pulled back ponytail, nude lips, diamond stud earrings and pointy nude pumps. This dress would look better if the netting was replaced by sheer black fabric.

What were your favourite dresses of the night?
