Taylor Schilling In Vionnet – 2014 American Music Awards

Taylor Schilling In Vionnet - 2014 American Music Awards

Taylor Schilling joined her ‘Orange is the New Black’ co-star Uzo Aduba on the red carpet for the the 2014 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 23) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Vionnet Resort 2015 black and white one-shoulder dress featuring intriguing asymmetrical cuts including a peplum detail.

Breaking up the monochrome nature of her look she spliced it with a touch of colour via her patent red Brian Atwood ‘Marella’ pumps and a gunmetal Lee Savage ‘Stack’ clutch.

At first I wasn’t on board with the nude makeup and side-swept wavy tresses, but the makeup complements the easy nature of this look and a pop of colour wasn’t needed as the pumps provided that, plus the hair doesn’t get in the way of the sharp neckline.

Jhene Aiko In Alice + Olivia – 2014 American Music Awards

Jhene Aiko In Alice + Olivia - 2014 American Music Awards

Jhené Aiko attended the 2014 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 23) in Los Angeles, California.

Going for glamour rather than working the sassy angle, the singer wore an Alice + Olivia’s gown worthy of a red carpet event, but was this the right gown for this occasion?

I say why not? I mean what’s not to love about this beautiful gown finished in striking glimmering red brocade with a T-back, which she styled with a game-changing Amrapli necklace which elevated the look along with her Rauwolf clutch.

Music awards don’t always have to be about wearing the shortest frock or a gown with a slit to the hip bone. I find this sweet and refreshing.

Dianna Agron In Marchesa – 2014 American Music Awards

Dianna Agron In Marchesa - 2014 American Music Awards

Dianna Agron joined the starlets at the 2014 American Music Awards, held on Sunday night (November 23) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

She also took a darker, more gothic turn on the AMAs red carpet wearing a black Marchesa Fall 2014 off-the-shoulder dress that appeared ready to fall completely off.

Absent the shapelier runway silhouette and the ribbon accent piece, the textured, ruched design seemed even more ill-suited to the pretty starlet.

The styling fell flat, too, with the plain black pumps and caged cuff doing nothing to save the look.

Perhaps echoing the model’s hair with her own brushed-back platinum strands, she added a headband, finishing the look with a sultry smoky eye.

Lucy Hale In Vera Wang – 2014 American Music Awards

Lucy Hale In Vera Wang - 2014 American Music Awards

Lucy Hale attended the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday night (November 23) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The young starlet wore an embellished Vera Wang Spring 2015 black minidress with a fringed hemline.

Attempting to give the A-line number some shape, she stood with hand on hip, equally showing off her edgy collection of Jacob & Co and EFFY Jewelry rings.

Also accessorizing with EF Collection earrings, she wore her long bob in crimped waves and added another dark edge to the ensemble via a vampy oxblood lip.

I think I’m still hung up on her head-turning CMA Awards entrance, as this one failed to inspire.

With a firm set of red-carpet hits and misses to her name, where does this look land?

Elizabeth Banks In Peter Pilotto – 2014 American Music Awards

Elizabeth Banks In Peter Pilotto - 2014 American Music Awards

Elizabeth Banks attended the 2014 American Music Awards, hosted on Sunday night (November 23) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, who has been on the promo tour for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’ also worked a short dress to her advantage, donning a Peter Pilotto Spring 2015 frock in boldly acidic shades of pink and orange contrasted with black.

The texture of the lacy, engineered fabric and embellished overlays is really what makes this design so interesting. Otherwise, the general silhouette of the dress could translate as a bit twee for Elizabeth.

Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Savara’ sculpted heels in matching colourways to the dress accessorized the look, as did a Reece Hudson clutch and Casa Reale statement ring.

Do you like her night away from ‘Hunger Games’ press duties, or are you craving her more dramatic premiere looks?

Nicki Minaj In Alexander Wang – 2014 American Music Awards

Nicki Minaj In Alexander Wang - 2014 American Music Awards

Before hitting the stage for a performance of ‘Bed of Lies’, Nicki Minaj was on the red carpet at the 2014 American Music Awards, hosted on Sunday night (November 23) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The singer unsurprisingly continued her recent love affair with short hemlines, flaunting her pins in an Alexander Wang Spring 2015 sporty frock with Manolo Blahnik black pumps.

The molded, techno-inspired minidress with its cutouts and micro-pleats was simultaneously flirty, fun and fierce—kind of like Miss Minaj.

A centre-parted long bob blended right into the bodice of the dress, while her makeup included a heavily lined eye and light pink lip.
