Red Carpet Fashion Awards

This morning Demi Lovato joined Taio Cruz at The Mixing Room in the JW Marriott Hotel in LA to announce the nominations for the 2010 American Music Awards which will take place on November 21.

I don’t usually get excited about Demi, but on this occasion I really liked her Alexander Wang draped dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

Her LBD has a sweetheart neckline, ruching on the bodice, a pleated skirt and a sash which drapes down back.

With so much going on I would’ve expect Demi be done with her Christian Louboutin Amber sandals with a crystal embellished heel.

Sadly no.

She over cooked this look with the necklaces. They really weren’t needed and ruin what could’ve been a perfect look.

There would’ve been deafening screams on the red carpet for the “Camp Rock 2″ New York Premiere as the Jonas Brothers promoted their new movie.

Demi Lovato joined her musical cast on the red carpet wearing a Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2010 dress.

I absolutely love this dress.

It’s so very cute without being too ‘Disney’.

I love the white, ivory, silver and bronze mosaic sequined detail which makes this dress really stands out on the red carpet.

I’m glad she kept the ivory ruffles detail on the hip as it adds something fresh to her look.

I’m not crazy about the schizophrenic hair colouring.

Is it chestnut brown or is it auburn? Let’s make a decision here.

Demi completed her look with a Swarovski’s Rockstar clutch, Everlon Diamond and Ruthie Davis ‘Cindy’ platform sandals.

Demi Lovato arrived on the blue carpet for Disneynature’s “Oceans” premiere in Hollywood on Saturday afternoon with new beau Joe Jonas.

Am I the only one who doesn’t buy into these romances?

I digress. The teen actress looked gorgeous wearing a BCBG Max Azria splatter paint print bustier dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

I love the colours on the skirt which also trim the black bodice on the sweetheart neckline.

The skirt on the runway has more flair as it’s asymmetrical plus it drapes from the hip, whereas Demi’s dress might have been modified slightly to be more ‘Disney friendly’.

Thankfully Demi shunned the ankle boot trend, by opting for a pair of Pierre Hardy strappy sandals.

I really love this look. It’s cute, fun, colourful and age appropriate.

Worst Dressed Award
Nicole Scherzinger is a beautiful woman, but I really didn’t like her David Meister’s liquid gold halter gown.

The colour suits her skin tone, but the style feels a bit old fashioned.

She would’ve looked amazing in something more contemporary.

Not Going To Be A Popular Choice But…Award
…I didn’t like Olivia Wilde in this Monique Lhuillier dress.

I don’t like the length of the skirt, nor do I like the way her hair is styled.

In many pictures she also looked a bit washed out.

I’m sure many of you will disagree, but I apart from her Sergio Rossi heels I couldn’t find one positive.

Ill-Fitting Award
Kelly Rutherford vintage inspired Jenny Packham Fall gown is beautiful, but it just didn’t like it on her.

It took me a while to figure out why, but it’s the fit plus the hook neckline detail and the lack of support the turns me off.

The gown looks much much better on the runway.

Nice Dress Shame About The OTT Necklace Award
Demi Lovato is wearing a gorgeous blue Jenny Packham strapless ruffled mini dress with a black satin sash tie around her waist, but she over cooked this look with the OTT necklace.

The ruffles were enough details to keep this look interesting, but she takes the focus away from her dress to that garish necklace.

Least Flattering Award
Colbie Caillat’s orange dress either accentuated her broad shoulders, or gave her broaders. Either way her dress paired with a Lauren Merkin’s “Lotte” clutch wasn’t very flattering.

Best Dressed Award
It’s been a long while since I was wowed by Fergie, but the singer did just that at the AMAs last night.

The singer walked the red carpet wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 black gown with asymmetrical zipper detailing which leads to a dramatic front slit.

The gown sparkles with thousands of black triangular paillettes and is embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals.

Fergie’s gown is slightly modified from the runway as the neckline differs plus Fergie’s gown has straps.

Black Louboutin’s plus a bracelet, armlet and large ring complete this stunning look.

Best Mini Dress Award
Alicia Keys has been a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, so it’s not a surprise to see the singer wearing one of his stunning designs.

Her modified Giorgio Armani Spring 2010 cobalt blue, jewel encrusted strapless dress had an origami pleated detail on the bust which is more dramatic than the runway version.

I’m loving the aqua marine shades of blue, and the cute Swarovski crystal embellished shorts she wore under her dress.

She picked a fun piece from this collection that truly embodied the spirit of the AMAs.

Most Dramatic Award
Whilst most below were picking out cute nude dresses, Rihanna opted for a dramatic black and white floral laser cut Marchesa Spring 2010 strapless gown.

I loved this gown and it needed a strong personality to pull it off, and Rihanna did in my opinion.

I will guess a lot of you will hate this look, but she gets a thumbs up from me even with those white shoes.

Nice Dress, Shame About The Hair Award
Shakira seems to be developing a healthy obsession with Versace, as this is her 3rd Versace red carpet look in a row.

This sexy Versace Spring 2010 ultra mini yellow dress with cut-out details was perfect for someone with tons of sex appeal like Shakira, but I couldn’t help but feel that they ran out of time to style her hair.

It felt a bit flat against her stunning dress which she paired with the Spring 2010 runway heels.

Looks Way Better On The Red Carpet Award
This Christian Cota Spring 2010 ivory dress could have gone oh so wrong on Kristen Bell had she worn it as it was presented on the runway.

She only pulled up the skirt a few inches and removed the chains, but it makes a world of difference.

Silver Christian Louboutin Archidisco T-strap sandals and a Judith Leiber clutch completed this cute look.

Inspired By Taylor Swift Award
Had Taylor Swift been at this event, this silver Talbot Runhof Spring 2010 mini dress is what we would’ve expected her to wear.

Selena Gomez is sparkling both via her dress and her winning smile wearing her dress with Rock & Republic’s “Romy” strappy sandals embellished with chain detail.

I’m really loving this look as Selena tends to dress way too mature and boring for her young age.

Toned Down Bling Award
Like Taylor, Carrie Underwood used to have an obsession with over embellished dresses.

On this occasion she looked beautiful wearing a metallic one-shouldered Theia dress paired with amazing gold strappy sandals.

Nude Award
From the nude make-up, to the nude dress and the nude Guiseppe Zanotti heels, Demi Lovato needed something to inject a bit of life into her look.

Luckily her Jenny Packham Spring 2010 dress has a jeweled detail on the neckline to stop this look from being so boring and totally washing her out.

Va Va Voom Award
No matter was Sofia Vergara wears she’s going to look sexy.

Even if she was wearing a bin liner.

Whilst most opted for Music Award standard mini dresses, Sofia wowed in a nude Emilio Pucci one-shoulder gown which no doubt would’ve had men going weak at the knees.

Kate Beckinsale Will Be Green With Envy Award
It seems that since Paula Abdul left ‘American Idol’ that she’s had a style transformation.

Gone are those tacky costumey dresses, and in comes this stunning strapless lace mermaid hem gown.

The gown was so grand she need 2 people to help her walk down the red carpet.

I can’t remember the last time she looked this amazing.

Out Of Place Award
I love the delicate lace details on Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga one-shoulder gown.

The pink and grey colours are gorgeous on her, but she always looks so out of place at these music events.

Worst Dressed Award
As much as I should be loving Kelly Clarkson’s dress based on the amount of embellishments are covering her dress, it fails to flatter her.

Needs To Check Out Style.com Award
Can someone please introduce Leona Lewis to Style.com.

She needs to be made aware that there are other designers out there than just Vivienne Westwood.

Yes she makes great designs, but Leona is only picking pieces that look exactly the same and it’s getting incredibly boring now.

I’ll lose it if I have to refer to those clunky ankle boots and that corset belt, so I’m going to pass.

What’s Happening? Award
Keri Hilson used to be so interesting to watch on the red carpet, but her look has started to become boring and stale.

I hope she gets back to her best soon, because she can do better than a LBD.
