“American Idol” Grand Finale 2009

Terri Seymour showed off her enviable figure wearing a black Versace Spring 2009 mini dress, with an asymmetrical strap.

I much prefer the strapless runway version.

Christina Applegate was so desperate to get inside and see who the winner was, we only briefly got to see her Rebecca Taylor Spring 2009 gold embellished tank.

Carrie Underwood matches a pink plaster to her flirty neon Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2009 dress.

I love the fruity embellished shoulder straps.

Paula Abdul looked outstanding for the first time in a long time wearing a body-hugging gold strapless number, by Danish designer Rikke Gudnitz.

This has to be one her best looks ever. The gown very much reminds me of the Thierry Mugler dress which Beyonce wore recently.

Fergie is electric in her electric blue Alexander McQueen silk satin shift dress, with strappy Stuart Weitzman silver sandals, and silver bangles.

Heather Locklear arrived looking super casual wearing white jeans and a nude top, whilst her daughter got all dressed up, looking super cute in a striped and polka dotted Betsey Johnson Spring 2008 mini dress, with sequins all over.

Kara DioGuardi arrived wearing a gorgeous dramatic black strapless gown. Hopefully to mourn the end of her stint on American Idol.

She drives me mental, plus she slows the show down.

      Anon you are right it’s very similar to Elie Spring 09 couture collection, but I looked on and it wasn’t there.

      THanks for your message.

    carrie looks so gorgeous! by the way, the bandaids on her knee are from an injury she had working out a few days ago.

    Paula’s dress is great.

  11. Marco May 22, 2009 at 00:43 #

    Even Victoria and Romeo Beckham were there…

    UGH, I hate this show. It’s so redundant!
    Heather Locklear and her daughter look casually cute! I like it.
    Paula look pretty stunning, for the first time in years.
    Aw, Carrie Underwood matched her patch with her dress. Real cute!

    Is there any chance someone can ID those shoes? They’re encrusted with crystals in heel and beneath the toe. They’re really beautiful.

    christina, looks great shame she didnt pose on the red carpet. i love how casual she looks compared to the very casual heather locklear.

  15. Lexa May 21, 2009 at 22:05 #

    Paula looked great!
    I also loved her pink dress and wonderful necklace that she wore to the American Idol Finale press room:

  16. Grace May 21, 2009 at 21:41 #

    Wow. I vote P.A. as my personal best dressed of the week because it must take her sooooo much effort to tone down her usual crazy. Plus her body’s bangin, especially for a woman of a certain age.

  17. Amber May 21, 2009 at 21:13 #

    heather needs to lay off the Feria haircolor or whatever she promotes. her hair looks a fried hot mess.

  18. robbie May 21, 2009 at 20:58 #

    terri, i prefer the runway version but i think she should have had her hair back, i wish she had wore the white.

    carrie, WTF is with the plasters? im so bored of her cutesy prom princess style dresses.

    paula, WOW not a sight of tranny make-up or vulgar dresses, she looks good.

    fergie, i really hate the hair but the dress is hot, a little plain but hot, those sandals are droolworthy.

    heather, i love her but someone needs to pass her a brush, i think her shoes are jimmy choo “cat” sandals (currently on net-a-poter :P). her daughter looks cute ugly shoes though.

    kara, oh famn big mess from the shoulders up, normally i prefer hair back with strapless dresses, but her ears are rather big, and those earrings are bad!
