Nicki Minaj In Manish Arora – 2010 American Music Awards

Most Dramatic Award
With Rihanna going sophisticated in Elie Saab Couture and Katy Perry going romantic in Badgley Mischka, someone had to bring the drama to the red carpet at the 2010 American Music Awards in LA tonight.

Cue Nicki Minaj who took the red carpet by storm wearing a Manish Arora Spring 2011 dress.

I say dress; it’s more like a piece of art.

One has to wonder how she managed to sit in this dress.

I think she totally pulled it off. It would be really easy to get lost in this dress.

Christian Louboutin heels and green tipped hair completed her look.

    This dress really is SOMETHING, but her hair is a disaster as both the color and styling.

    I was like, I kinda like how she added the green sleeves and then realized it was her hair…..

      SAME HERE! And the “green sleeves” was the only thing I really liked. :-)

        AHHAHAHAH me too I was like those green sleeves look hella cute! oh well.

    It might be my 3am over exhausted haze talking …BUT this is my fav AMA look so far.

      No. it’s a good look.

      • Carla November 22, 2010 at 03:12 #

        I wish it was shorter. I think there is way too much going on.

    “Christian Louboutin heels and green tipped hair completed her look.”

    This sentence is awesome. LOL. Bet you’ll never get the chance to say this ever again.

    • Fashion Critic November 22, 2010 at 03:07 #

      lol…I doubt it

    Oh my. I think that I may need be tired (didn’t get my Sunday nap), but I like this dress. It is totally Nicki, and I can’t get mad at her for wearing it. I don’t even get bent out of shape with Lady GaGa. It’s just expected. My only complaint is that I think that it should have been a little shorter because of her height.
    Until you mentioned it, I thought that the green hair was apart of the dress. LOL!

      i did too until I did a double take on the runway picture

    Like others, I also thought the green hair was part of the dress, but regardless, I love it – I doubt if it could have been shorter, at least not without ruining the design at the bottom of the dress……overall, one of my favs.

  7. Onionviper November 22, 2010 at 04:28 #

    I liked but I would’ve liked better if the dress was a little shorter on her, like in the model pic

  8. Alina November 22, 2010 at 05:01 #

    Surprisingly I like it!
    It works for her.

  9. roxana November 22, 2010 at 07:08 #

    AMAZING LOOK!

  10. Lara November 22, 2010 at 07:14 #

    She looks like insect. But cute insect, through

  11. karen November 22, 2010 at 07:38 #

    At least she looks interesting.

  12. Ayesha November 22, 2010 at 10:17 #

    she looks awesome!!

  13. fashion-mommy November 22, 2010 at 11:13 #

    she looks like a cartoon prawn! Hate it!

  14. Rachel November 22, 2010 at 13:09 #

    I think the Manish Arora collection this dress is from smacks of Thierry Mugler’s “Les Insects” collection – just with Arora-bright colours.Good for Nicki.It beats hiking your hemline up for attention.

  15. Terry November 22, 2010 at 13:29 #

    I think this dress perfectly matches Nicki’s flamboyant personality. Love it!

  16. jayy November 22, 2010 at 14:13 #

    my fav rapper , she looks gorgeous . the dress is on point & fly

  17. Henrique November 22, 2010 at 14:15 #

    I like everything about this look. She looks great.

    off-topic: I really like her album! She deserves success

  18. JJovana3 November 22, 2010 at 14:51 #

    I HATE to do this, but Lady Gaga called and wants her stylist back. I dont get Nicki’s appeal.

  19. Moxie November 22, 2010 at 15:36 #

    Oh my, she’s inside-out. Her bones are now on the outside.

  20. Marvel November 22, 2010 at 15:52 #

    How very lady gaga of her. Im sorry but someone has to make that comparison

  21. robbie November 22, 2010 at 17:09 #

    she is so fricking tacky! i thought gaga was tragic when it came to fashion but damn this is just BAD!

  22. SarahV November 22, 2010 at 17:27 #

    The hair is such a shame….

  23. Hannah November 22, 2010 at 19:55 #

    I have lvoed Manish for years, and I think celebrities are often scared of his deisgns or Ruin them, so I lvo ewhen a moment liek this comes along, don’t really like the green, or blonde, hair for that matter, but I couldn’t realyl care less when she wears this dress with such pride.

  24. Jimmy November 22, 2010 at 23:09 #

    I give her credit for being fearless but from head to toe it is a look I just don’t care for in the least. That being said she really did look like she was proud to wear this dress and that is a great thing to see.

  25. D November 24, 2010 at 10:56 #

    green bit is good, but blonde hairbad
