Ke$ha In Michael Costello – 2013 American Music Awards

Kesha In Michael Costello – 2013 American Music Awards

It’s not a music awards show until Ke$ha comes and makes her statement, and fortunately, the singer was in full form at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday.

For tonight’s eyebrow raising look, the singer wore a dramatic Michael Costello gown that perfectly walks the line between classic glamour and awards show fun.

The one-sided peplum is a exciting twist on the classic peplum trend, and that perfectly toned leg gives Angelina’s a run for its money (Yes, I said it.).

I also love the cotton candy, dual-coloured hair. Sure, it might not be the most wearable look in the world, but ‘unnatural’ hair colours have been a trend for quite some time, and these muted versions are quite pretty.

Where things do end up just getting too busy is her hands–the black and white and rhinestone nailart, plus the multiple rings just end up being too much for the eye to take in.

But ultimately, Ke$ha actually won me over with this look.

Do you agree that this is just the right amount of fun, or are you shocked that I would feel so favorably toward the look?

    I live in Mexico, i heard Angelina’s laugh up here.

      Lmao Can’t stop laughing at this.

    This is bad. Omg. Horrible

    • Nat39 November 25, 2013 at 19:55 #

      Ditto. It’s bad, and it’s not just the hair, it’s the awful gown itself.

      • Nat39 November 25, 2013 at 20:03 #

        (or at least the way it comes across on her persona)

    I like the gown but not on her and not for this occasion.

    On the other hand, I am scaring myself but I like the hair for her.

    WHY DO I LOVE THIS LOOK CALL 911 SOMEBODY.
    her hair provides a gorgeous pop of color, the dress is so mysterious and sexy, as are her shoes. I love the grunge princess vibe I’m getting here.

    • KatieKate November 25, 2013 at 08:05 #

      I totally feel you. I like it too, and I’m scared!!

        +2 I don’t know why, but the more I look at the picture, the more I like this look.

    • anonymous as always November 25, 2013 at 18:20 #

      I am confused myself. I don’t know if I find this ingenious or scary.

  5. Mari November 25, 2013 at 02:42 #

    I had never seen her look pretty until today. So there’s that.
    And the dress made her body look good. Good choice.

  6. Victor November 25, 2013 at 02:45 #

    She was great!The hair,the dress… a better version than the new Donatella (Yes Gaga, it’s you).

    I am loving this look. It is rare I like a Ke$ha look but this is one of those times. Everything is beautiful from head to toe.

      +3 Love how classy she looks! I could get used to this.

  8. Valissa November 25, 2013 at 02:47 #

    This would have been a good look for Kesha had she put her hair up! It’s the only thing letting this look down. I actually like the dress and shoes on her…

  9. Kat November 25, 2013 at 02:51 #

    She looks so pretty. And clean!

        I can’t believe how pretty she looks without the usual ton of ridiculous stuff she’s so fond to wear… It’s not a perfect look, but I do love hair, makeup and dress…

    Always happy to see a Project Runway alum’s work on the red carpet. Not my favorite gown, but it is a big improvement for her.

  11. Leila November 25, 2013 at 03:52 #

    I actually really like this look! She looks so clean, and the gown makes her usual boxy frame have some form, in my opinion.

      Very flattering.

    Even though her hair matches perfectly the color of AMA logo, I would still prefer to see this look against a different background in an editorial (keeping the hair colors, mind you). This is her best look to date. And one of the best at the event.

  13. Alina November 25, 2013 at 08:21 #

    The dress is beautiful. With her hair up and some great makeup, this could have worked.

    I never saw this coming. I like a Kesha look. wow! I’m shocked. she looks great and the shoes are perfect

  15. Noemi November 25, 2013 at 10:04 #

    I totally like her from hair to toe. I like so much the trend of “unnatural” colored hair!
    Well done Ke$ha

  16. Betelgeuze November 25, 2013 at 10:57 #

    Wow, I haven’t seen such an Angelina leg since… well, Angelina.

    Had the slit been just a little (or much) lower, I’d give two thumbs up to this look. The hair works for me and I have no idea why, the makeup’s actually great and the black dress and shoes are the perfect choice.

    She looks like a wax figurine. Love this dress, not sure about it on her, she looks very gaga here and I almost didn’t recognise her. I like the toned down look for her tho.

  18. Prov November 25, 2013 at 14:52 #

    I love it. She looks great.

    I also really appreciate how you take everything into consideration before you judge a look, FC.

  19. Dhppy November 25, 2013 at 21:37 #

    I’m not into the hairstyling, but I love the dress. It may be my favorite dress of the night. And it’s Michael Costello! Go Project Runway!
