Best and Worst Dressed: AMA's 2012

Once again, it's that time of year: AMA time. If you're a keen music fan like me, who loves every single award show, it's pretty much guaranteed that you'll tune in every year and sit for hours watching one of America's biggest mainstream music awards. 
    But it's not just about the music, it's all about fashion too. The excitement of who's going to turn up wearing what?  What are the likes of Nicki Minaj going to pull of the bag this year? Something shocking and super unique as expected, or something simple that screams classy fashion? 
     Now the awards are under way, it's time to take a look at what designs were paraded down this years red carpet: who looked hot and on point and who simply failed to impress?

Carly Rae Jepsen
This popular Canadian singer is known for her cute/down to earth style and this number is exactly that. At first, I wasn't keen on this dress from Gomez Garcia but now, I love it! It suits her sweet and cute girly image perfectly and hugs her curves, showing off a womanly figure. Her hair fixed in a glam side bun too, she looks incredible. I personally love this look but what do YOU think? 

I am in love with this new chic look from Ke$ha! We're so used to seeing her drenched in glitter and outrageous clothes that we never see the pretty face underneath! Ke$ha wore this pale pink lace mini dress showing off her toned pins, paired with killer sky high black heels. Oozing classiness, I'd say this is my favourite outfit I've ever seen on Ke$ha. Classy Ke$ha owned the red carpet and I can't wait to see more from this new look! 

Taylor Swift
Classic Taylor Swift: chic, classy and right on point. Taylor looked flawless as she took to the red carpet this evening in this nude Zuhair Murad mini dress. This dress is from the pre-fall collection and Taylor pulled it off effortlessly. Wearing her hair in a neat up-do, it made this look. This dress is my personal favourite of the evening, but what do you think? Hot or not?

Kelly Rowland
Again, another nude/pale pink ensemble graced the red carpet. I love this dress by Naeem Khan and think it suits Kelly Rowlands' curvy figure lovely. The asymmetric pattern adds a unique touch to an otherwise plain dress to give it that extra edge. My only criticism of this dress would be that it does look a little too casual for a red carpet event. For an after party, it would be perfect but maybe not for such a prestigious music event.

Carrie Underwood
There's something about a floor-length dress on a red carpet that just screams Hollywood glamour, it fulfils all the A-List stereotypes for a typical award a good way, of course. This dress sported by Country-music star, Carrie Underwood, could have mixed opinions from the public. However, I personally, love this purple beaded chiffon gown! Simple curls complete this glamorous look to give it that A-List finish.

Christina Aguilera
Christina's dress is lovely, soft tones of purple with a thigh-high slit. However, when teamed with the OTT glittery clutch and shoes and overly-done make up, she looks more like a drag Queen than a pop Queen. Everything she's wearing is gorgeous but when teamed together, it's all a bit too much unfortunately resulting in this fashion disaster!

Not a fan of this at all. This bronze metallic gown makes Pink look a gladiator. The top half looking like a coat of armour, not something you'd wear to a red carpet awards show. What are your thoughts? 

Nicki Minaj
This might be an unpopular opinion, but I love this lime green gown that Nicki Minaj wore. It's so nice to see Nicki in something relatively normal for once but still edgy with this colour. It's a dress by Monique Lhuillier and was also worn by Modern Family Star Julie Bowen at the Emmy's recently. Who rocks this look best? Julie or Nicki?

So that's my best and worst dressed of this years American Music Awards but I want to know your opinion, let me know in the comments which star YOU think rocked the red carpet the most?
