2008 American Music Awards- Arrivals
Alicia Keys looked simple but stunning in an Armani Prive one shoulder dress with Swarovski crystal trim, and while that jeweled thingamajig on her forehead would have caused for an automatic foul, it works for Ms. Keys. HIT
Rihanna looked fabulous in Zac Posen. Very flirty, very fun and very youthful. Leave it to Little Miss Sunshine to be one season ahead. HIT
Taylor Swift (who has the #1 album in the country right now) looked pretty darn boring in Collette Dinnigan and Christian Louboutin shoes. For a girl who’s BF broke up with her on a 27 sec. phone call less than a month ago, she shoulda brought it! Taylor, when you are a celebrity and your man leaves you, you are left with no other choice tha to bring your A-game on the next red carpet you hit. Joe, Nick are whoever Jonas [you were with], should have been kicking himself when he saw you. MISS
Christina Aguilera looked nice in Elie Saab, can’t say I’m loving the hair and makeup though. MISS
The Pussycat Dolls all wore an original design by Project Runway winner Christian Siriano. Love the look for all 5 ladies. HIT
To see more AMA red carpet coverage…..
Miley Cyrus, who had a lot to celebrate that night, including her 16th birthday, looked fabulous as all hell in this strapless Marchesa dress and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. She gets best dressed of the night from me. HIT
Good girl Jordin Sparks rocked a Dolce & Gabbana dress and Nicole Khristine jewels. Not loving the fit of the dress, the shoes, the red streaks in the hair or the makeup. MISS, completely.
High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale looked grrrreat in an Alberta Ferietti by Philosophy dress, Burberry shoes and Jimmy Choo bag. If Miley Cyrus had a runner-up to best dressed, it would be Ashley. HIT
The Jonas Brothers all looked dapper in their Ralph Lauren suits. Loves it. HIT
Kanye West rocked his own design on the carpet. His jacket was by Pastelle, which is his long overdue clothing line. It was simple and he was a little under dressed for the event, but I really do think the outfit is fly. HIT (don’t shoot me)
Pink looked fab in a body hugging Vivienne Westwood dress from the Fall 2007 collection. Loves the look. HIT
Teen sweetheart Demi Lovato looked stunning in a white tiered lace Gustavo Cadile dress, with a black sash. Love the look, and ya’lls know I’m all about being age appropriate. HIT
Leona Lewis looked annoyingly simple in a Jenny Packham dress. Although it doesn’t quite qualify as a MISS, I still don’t like it. Because I’M not her stylist, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. HIT
Queen Latifah looked great in a stretched metallic dress and Jimmy Choo pewter shoes. HIT
Chris Brown gets best dressed male from me. Love this look. The dapper-edgy look, which has almost become his signature. Who else can pull off a leather jacket and a bow tie? HIT
Ne-Yo always brings it. ALWAYS brings it. And this time was no different. HIT
Colbie Cailat wore a dress made completely out of fresh flowers! What a fashion risk. I would have been all for it, had the fit been right. Well, I guess it would be impossible to tailor flowers. MISS
Jamie Foxx also took a risk with those damn boots. Can’t say I like it. MISS
Well there you go. My HIT’s and MISSES, keep checking back for more coverage.
