Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rihanna In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2013 - 2013 American Music Awards

Rihanna skipped the red carpet for the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday evening, but did make an appearance on stage to collect the ‘Favourite Soul/R&B Artist’ of the year award.

She did so wearing a sexy two-piece from Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2013 Couture collection.

The look consisted of a black bustier top with a floor-sweeping sheer lace skirt with girdle-like construction.

A collection of jewels courtesy of Lynn Ban and Repossi plus an Alex Mika ear cuff accessorized her look.

It’s by far from being her best look, but I don’t hate it.

On the downside her wrap-setting hairstyle is beyond ridiculous plus the tan lines are tacky.

2013AMA_MileyCyrus

Miley Cyrus was remarkably reserved on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards, held on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The boundaries-breaking songstress has lately kept us on our toes, keeping us guessing about which fashion side we’ll see—overtly skin-baring or sophisticatedly dazzling.

She left the daring edge for another occasion—no doubt for her closing performance later in the show—simply parading out a Versus Versace white pantsuit for her more androgynous arrival.

Sure, the jacket was plunging and there was a flicker of punk edge thanks to the oversized gold safety pin accents. But tame was still the name of this game, right down to her standard black Saint Laurent pumps and small dose of Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

She even went for a bare-faced approach (her bleached eyebrows have thankfully been restored) whilst leaving her cropped ’do without its signature voluminous attitude.

Perhaps this look only felt lacklustre because we are used to Miley making such a style scene. Still, there was something refreshing about this safer statement.

Jennifer Hudson In Christian Dior – 2013 American Music Awards

Jennifer Hudson brought a jolt of neon energy to the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

The singer looked ravishing in a short-sleeved, orange Christian Dior gown with a asymmetrical, high-low hemline.

Her one-legged peek-a-boo with the pink lining of the dress is tons of fun and totally unique and really makes her stand out from the crowd.

Jennifer’s silver strapped platforms were the perfect shoe choice for the look, and let me just say, I’m dying over the electric blue eyeliner.

Not everyone would have dared to bring in yet another neon shade with this ensemble, but it is my favorite beauty look of the night.

I also love the new highlights in her pixie and this parted style is my favorite way she’s styled her new cropped ‘do thus far.

You may remember that Clotilde Courau wore this same dress back in September during the Deauville American Film Festival.

Ciara In J. Mendel – 2013 American Music Awards

Ciara looked every bit the R&B starlet on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The singer wore a graphic, peek-a-boo gown from the J. Mendel Spring 2014 collection, which I think is safe to say was made for her.

The graphically patterned dress offers an exciting ‘is it or isn’t it’ continuous flash of skin, and manages to reveal a lot, without actually seeming all that risqué.

Ciara was smart to keep the accessories at the bare minimum and really let this dress sing, and even kept her makeup to the glam minimum.

My one disappointment here is her hair. I was loving her shoulder-length bob, and this shorter version just seems a bit too perky and soccer mom for the star. I look forward to seeing how she styles it for her next public appearance.

Lady Gaga In Versace - 2013 American Music AwardsLady Gaga reached deep into her grab-bag of looks at the 2013 American Music Awards, held on Sunday evening at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

In grand Gaga fashion, Mother Monster made another dramatic, head-turning entrance as she arrived on the red carpet sitting atop a white human horse, activated by two people underneath. Perhaps she’s simultaneously channeling a romantic white knight and damsel in distress.

The eccentric ‘Applause’ songstress was just named the face of Versace’s Spring 2014 campaign, so she naturally wore a confection from that collection.

The lavender cutout gown, accented with an armor-like harness of chains and charms, even appears to a manipulated version of the one she’s donning in the Italian fashion house’s ad.

The elephant (or horse) in the room? With her long blonde locks and cheekbone-chiseled bronzer, just call her Donatella Versace 2.0.

Nicole Richie In Emilio Pucci – 2013 American Music Awards

Nicole Richie looked like a boho goddess on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The designer wore a white, cut-out Emilio Pucci gown that showed off her perfectly toned physique beautifully.

I love the fact that even as Nicole has matured and developed a more glamorous sense of style, there is always a hint of her beloved boho in every look.

The gold link collar necklace and earrings give her an almost Cleopatra-esque effect, which the cat-eye and gold eye shadow only accentuate.

The fringed House of Harlow clutch (her own design) seems out of place at first, but it really does cement the boho royalty look she’s got going on.

So tell me, are you as sold on Nicole’s look as I am?
