November 22, 2010 Runway To Red Carpet

Nicki Minaj In Manish Arora – 2010 American Music Awards

Most Dramatic Award
With Rihanna going sophisticated in Elie Saab Couture and Katy Perry going romantic in Badgley Mischka, someone had to bring the drama to the red carpet at the 2010 American Music Awards in LA tonight.

Cue Nicki Minaj who took the red carpet by storm wearing a Manish Arora Spring 2011 dress.

I say dress; it’s more like a piece of art.

One has to wonder how she managed to sit in this dress.

I think she totally pulled it off. It would be really easy to get lost in this dress.

Christian Louboutin heels and green tipped hair completed her look.

    I give her credit for being fearless but from head to toe it is a look I just don’t care for in the least. That being said she really did look like she was proud to wear this dress and that is a great thing to see.

    I have lvoed Manish for years, and I think celebrities are often scared of his deisgns or Ruin them, so I lvo ewhen a moment liek this comes along, don’t really like the green, or blonde, hair for that matter, but I couldn’t realyl care less when she wears this dress with such pride.

    The hair is such a shame….

    she is so fricking tacky! i thought gaga was tragic when it came to fashion but damn this is just BAD!

  6. Marvel November 22, 2010 at 3:52 pm #

    How very lady gaga of her. Im sorry but someone has to make that comparison

  7. Moxie November 22, 2010 at 3:36 pm #

    Oh my, she’s inside-out. Her bones are now on the outside.

    I HATE to do this, but Lady Gaga called and wants her stylist back. I dont get Nicki’s appeal.

  9. Henrique November 22, 2010 at 2:15 pm #

    I like everything about this look. She looks great.

    off-topic: I really like her album! She deserves success

  11. Terry November 22, 2010 at 1:29 pm #

    I think this dress perfectly matches Nicki’s flamboyant personality. Love it!

    I think the Manish Arora collection this dress is from smacks of Thierry Mugler’s “Les Insects” collection – just with Arora-bright colours.Good for Nicki.It beats hiking your hemline up for attention.

    she looks like a cartoon prawn! Hate it!

  14. Ayesha November 22, 2010 at 10:17 am #

  15. karen November 22, 2010 at 7:38 am #

  16. Lara November 22, 2010 at 7:14 am #

    Surprisingly I like it!
    It works for her.

  19. Onionviper November 22, 2010 at 4:28 am #

    I liked but I would’ve liked better if the dress was a little shorter on her, like in the model pic

  20. mol November 22, 2010 at 3:31 am #

    Like others, I also thought the green hair was part of the dress, but regardless, I love it – I doubt if it could have been shorter, at least not without ruining the design at the bottom of the dress……overall, one of my favs.

    Oh my. I think that I may need be tired (didn’t get my Sunday nap), but I like this dress. It is totally Nicki, and I can’t get mad at her for wearing it. I don’t even get bent out of shape with Lady GaGa. It’s just expected. My only complaint is that I think that it should have been a little shorter because of her height.
    Until you mentioned it, I thought that the green hair was apart of the dress. LOL!

      i did too until I did a double take on the runway picture

    “Christian Louboutin heels and green tipped hair completed her look.”

    This sentence is awesome. LOL. Bet you’ll never get the chance to say this ever again.

    • Fashion Critic November 22, 2010 at 3:07 am #

      lol…I doubt it

  23. Kiran Sooknandan November 22, 2010 at 3:00 am #

    It might be my 3am over exhausted haze talking …BUT this is my fav AMA look so far.

    • Fashion Critic November 22, 2010 at 3:04 am #

      No. it’s a good look.

      • Carla November 22, 2010 at 3:12 am #

        I wish it was shorter. I think there is way too much going on.

  24. Chiara November 22, 2010 at 2:46 am #

    I was like, I kinda like how she added the green sleeves and then realized it was her hair…..

    • Kim November 22, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

      SAME HERE! And the “green sleeves” was the only thing I really liked. ­čÖé

      • Tara Soni November 23, 2010 at 5:13 pm #

        AHHAHAHAH me too I was like those green sleeves look hella cute! oh well.

  25. Ev November 22, 2010 at 2:38 am #

    This dress really is SOMETHING, but her hair is a disaster as both the color and styling.
