Jennifer Hudson In Christian Dior – 2013 American Music Awards

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 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 Awards

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 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?

Taylor Swift In Julien Macdonald – 2013 American Music Awards

Taylor Swift played the ultimate golden girl on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards, hosted on Sunday evening at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The five-time nominee gave us the Midas touch in a Julien Macdonald Fall 2013 mini-dress. The itty-bitty party frock featured a nude-illusion lining at the bodice that was added post-runway. It wasn’t as illusive as I’d like. But the waist-cinching belt was still present and accounted for.

The leggy, metallic moment was only magnified with shiny, matching Jimmy Choo ‘Madison’ strappy sandals.

Messy, bedhead waves, a bronze-tinged smokey eye and nude lip, instead of her signature red, added a smoldering note to the full-on sizzle.

Does she prove that all that glitters really is gold?
