2008 American Music Awards – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed/Who Keeps Inviting You? Award
The AMAs took place last night in LA, and my first question is who keeps inviting Bai Ling to these red carpet events?

This flamenco-style dress is wrong on so many levels, plus the hair, the make-up and that one glove is just ridiculous.

What The…? Award
Colbie Caillat wears the strangest dress I have even seen on the red carpet – excluding Bjork’s swan dress.

Is it an embellished grass dress or a velvet green embellished dress? I am genuinely confused.

Most Ill-Fitting/Worst Brit Award
We have seen a lot of celebrities on the red carpet don suits and work the masculine trend.

Natasha Bedingfield totally fails to make it work in this ill-fitting white suit, which looks two sized too big for her.

The beauty of the masculine trend is to wear suits that flatter the woman’s shape, so Natasha fails miserably here.

Most Disappointing Award
I really tried but I just don’t like Ashley Tisdale Philosophy Fall 2008, strapless dress.

For me it’s the exposed tulle skirt that ruins this dress.

I really expected better from her.

Worst Hair Award
I am not quite ready to get over Rihanna’s disastrous new hair do.

Had she opted for a more masculine look, maybe she could have worked the red carpet better.

This Zac Posen Spring 2009 cream layered dress with an asymmetric hem, is a beautiful dress, but not the right choice for Ri Ri.

Worst Badass Chick Award
Tattoo artist Kat Von D opted for a maxi dress which exposed all her tattoos. Not being a fan of body art, this look does not work for me.

Worst Hair/Make-Up/Dress Award
The only thing working for me on Toccara Jones here, is her red shoes. The rest is a disaster, especially the hair and make-up.

I will assume she does not have a mirror in her home.

Most Dangerous Ensemble Award
This is the ensemble that she should have worn on the red carpet, as it more fitting to her image, but it looks so scary.

You wouldn’t want to get too close, as you could hurt yourself on one of those spikes.

Worst Couple Award
Like groups, I like it when couples are co-ordinated on the red carpet. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith do this so well, as do the Beckhams, without necessarily wearing the same colours.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo look like the bumped into each other on the red carpet and posed together. I do not feel any cohesion in their look at all.

The only thing I am in love with here are Vanessa’s Jimmy Choo Atlas patent sandals, as the plunging sheer front panel of her dress screams the ice skater.

    Phobe’s dress looks ugly!!! I do’t care how much of an improvement that is…it’s f’ing nasty!

    I love Riri to death but her leather outfit is too complicated for me. Her cleavage isn’t even symmetrical. Lol.

    Kat Von D should’ve worn a dress with no prints on it so she could highlight her tattoo. Her outfit is really distracting me.

    Rihanna wants to steal Beyonce’s title of Queen Ridiculous. And she’s doing great in her quest.

    I like Ashley’s outfit. Its really cute, and looks lovely on her. I love her makeup!

    Rihanna is beginning to try to hard. She’s constantly trying to re-invent herself through her hair, and unfortunatly it isnt working for me anymore.

    Eww I’m sorry but Rihanna tries too hard. That leather outfit is way OTD, even if she wore it for a performance.

    Ashley ruins her outfit with her horrible pout.
    Rihanna just doesn’t work for me. Tocarra was my favourite when she was on ANTM but what is this? And who keeps inviting Bai Ling??

    I like rihanna first look, I’ll admit it’s not her BEST but it isn’t the WORST either.

    I like Rihanna’s new hair. Not many can carry it off and I wouldn’t advise anyone to try but she manages very well with it. It’s very rock and roll.

    I love the leather outfit. Not so much the dress but only because of the hemline.

    Colbie’s dress was made from real flowers.

    I totally agree with everyone on your worst dressed list except for Ashley Tisdale and Rihanna’s second ensemble.

    The leather outfit of RiRi was quintessential her and what made it work for me was that she didn’t make it look tacky (but I’m neither liking her new do).

    As for Ashley Tisdale I think that she looks great for a change (I’m not a big fan of her fashion sense most of the time), she looks flawless imo, but where Miley stopped the pout Ashley T. brought it back. Keira Knightley is the only one who’d get away to pout because it looks so lovely on her 😀
