American Music Awards 2011 Red Carpet

Posted on November 21, 2011

We’re rolling up our sleeves, cracking our knuckles and doing some preliminary stretches. You should too, darlings. We’ve got a metric shit-ton of celebrities to criticize and we don’t want any of you to strain yourselves. Ready? Warmed up? Let’s DO THIS.


Adam Lambert

It’s so very not our style, but we would be perfectly happy saying complimentary things about this look if only it fit him better. He’s a bit sausage-y in this getup.


Alanis Morissette

Oh, sweetie. This is drab, boring, and not very flattering.


Amy Heidemann

This, on the other hand, is crazy fun. We’ll even allow for matchy accessories.


Anne V

Pretty. Nothing earth-shattering, of course. And we don’t even like red lace. But it’s inoffensive.


Audrina Patridge in Joey Tierney

Stripper shoes, cutouts, and babyhead boobs. Pure class all the way.


Bleona Qereti

Counselor Troi hitting the clubs because she’s horny.


Carly Steel

Bottom heavy and boring.


Cheryl Hines in Lorena Sarbu

Blah dress and cheap-looking shoes.


Christa B. Allen

It’s all right. We don’t actually love the shoes, but we salute her attempt to not match them too closely to the dress.


Ellie Goulding in Christopher Kane

If it weren’t for the plastic and the bared skin, we’d think this looked business-y. It needs way more interesting accessories and something needs to be done with the hair.


Erica Dasher

This couldn’t possibly be any more boring. We’re about to black out from boredom just looking at —


Heidi Klum in Giles

Apparently, tight, short and shiny is no longer enough for the Heidster. She had to add “underwear-baring” to the list.


Hillary Scott in Rani Zakhem

Kitten, a contrasting belt and purse with an up ‘do would have taken this dress places.


Jennifer Hudson in Jenny Packham

It’s a cute dress, but she’s making the mistake lately of wearing things too high-waisted for her build.


Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

It’s divatastic, we’ll give it that. At this stage in her career, it’s all about maximum impact, which is why she performed that drag revue onstage later in the evening. Don’t you worry; we’ll be running down that and most of the other stage looks in a later post.

Jennifer Morrison in Temperley London

The bottom half of this dress doesn’t feel like it goes with the top half. Cute bodice, but that hem is unfortunate. Also, she’s too washed out to be wearing an all-white dress.


Jenny McCarthy in Victoria Beckham

Cute and surprisingly understated. We would not have chosen those shoes for her, however.


John Legend

John, you used to dress so impeccably. What happened? The jacket and pants are both too tight and the latter needs hemming. Also, a contrasting shirt, please.


Julia Kurbatowa

This is the dress equivalent of an airbrushed van.


Julie Bowen in Manish Arora

WOW! What a supercute holiday party dress! What a boring pair of shoes.


Justin Bieber

Vampire lesbian.

Sorry, but it’s the first thing that popped up when we saw him and now we can’t think of anything else to say.


Katherine Heigl in Roberto Cavalli

There’s a fine line separating chic, pretty greys and drab greys. We think this dress, while fine in every other aspect, is just over the line on the drab side. We also think her hair’s a bit severe.


Katy Perry in Vivienne Westwood

She looks gorgeous, but that was the wrong shoe.


Lance Bass


You are A GAY, Lance Bass. You should not be wearing ill-fitted suits that badly need a good 3 inches taken off the pants hem. You should be setting an example, as A GAY, to the rest of those poor slobs on the red carpet.

The gays are very, very disappointed with you, Lance Bass. Maybe you and Lambert can start your own “Gays in badly fitted suits” club or something.


Mary J. Blige in Roberto Cavalli

O Mary J. Blige we love you get up, but we don’t think this dress is very flattering from a color perspective. You look a bit washed out, girl.


Nicki Minaj in Oscar de la Renta




Taylor Swift in Reem Acra

Whatever. Surprisingly shapeless. She’s a girl who loves her flounces and frills.

    Never seen so many train wrecks on one red carpet.  The only stand out was Jenny McCarthy for me and I kinda like those shoes with her VB dress.  I get the Nicki Minaj love – at least she’s bringing some interest but her crazy eyes will be haunting me today.  Also….all I can see now are “baby head boobs”.  YIPES.

     I suppose it is to her credit that I know who Nicki Minaj is just by sight, without ever having heard one single note of her music. As for the rest of these young ladies, (Erica Dasher? Hillary Scott? Who?) I have absolutely no idea who most of them are. And judging by the way they are dressed, especially considering they are on the Red Carpet, I don’t think I want to. 

    • granted, Hillary Scott is not a soloist–she is a member of Lady Antebellum.

  • the lance bass comment – amazing!! and so right.

  • Mariah J

    It’s a sad day when I have to admit that Katy Perry looks the best…everyone else is just “ew” or “eh”…mostly “ew”s

  • i have never found Katy Perry’s RC looks inspiring, but this one was great. Then she had to pick that shoe. The color is great but it ruins the entire effect of the dress.

    What a haphazard bunch -come are close to the oscars while others are on their way to the office party.   

    – You need to revise the comment con Christa B. Allen (who?) because that dress is hideous. 

    – Jenny Mc Carthy’s is not her dress, IMO. 

    – Love Nicky Minaj’s on her. 

    – Is it me or is Katherine Heigl not “aging” well? I mean, she was adorable as a teen, but her face now is puffy and her hair is never ok. 

    – Justin Bieber… I just can’t. Kid, some things not even you can get away with.  

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, I think Jenny McCarthy looks like the drag version of herself.  Maybe less severe in the styling and it would’ve been OK.

  • Aimee Haideman is the only one here who looks like she has an actual sense of style. The only other outfits of any interest are Nikki and Katy, both of who look like jokes – it’s their gimmick and I love it, but it’s unfair to compare to someone who’s actually trying to dress.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      Are you familiar with her work and Karmin? Mostly YouTube stuff but it’s clear that she has a very defined style, and she works it.

    “baby-head boobs” is genius. Also a great band name. 

    I love Heidemann’s outfit and styling. I really like that she did her hair like a 1940s hat. I’m not usually that into costume on the red carpet, but that look is totally working for her. Now I have to hit google to find out who the hell she is. (I guess the outfit did its job)

    “Vampire lesbian!”  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  GOOD one!  He doesn’t even look like himself with that 1950s school-picture-day hair, and the one thing Justin Bieber should never try to be is edgy. Because he ends up looking like this!

    I think the number of awards shows is exceeding the volume of good-looking clothing and the number of competent stylists, because this is a WHOLE lot of fug!  Cheryl Hines usually looks so good–but here she looks appallingly bad.  Plastic shoes and a shower curtain?  Girl–what were you thinking???

    Not loving Adam Lambert’s Buster Poindexter hair, and he looks so plastic–he could be a Sucklord Adam Lambert action figure.

    Alanis Morisette–my funky girl, what happened to you?

    Nikki Minaj, even with the crazy eyes, is the clear winner here.

    I like Lambert’s coat. And I don’t have any idea who Amy Heidemann is but she looks very cute. The only other dress I like is Julie Bowen’s. Bieber made me laugh out loud. And Nicki Minaj looks fabulous, except for her crazy eyes.

    Jennifer Lopez looks beautiful. I think it was the best look shown so far.

  • So… why do you all always put Taylor Swift at the end of every single thing you feature her in?

  • I’m strongly ambivalent to the girl, but Taylor’s earrings were everything.

  • counselor troi!!! horny!!!

  • I really wish Julie Bowen would have been able to get one of Bert’s looks in time for this, just because I think it would have been awesome if he’d beaten Anya to the red carpet (though I think if he ever dresses anyone for the red carpet, he’ll probably end up beating her)

    I’m very confused by Heidi’s dress — how is it supposed to be worn?  ‘Cause I’m guessing it’s not designed to go over blue underwear…

    • Julie would have looked great wearing this to the GQ thing (but with a better bra). Metallics seemed to be protocol. 

  • Most confusing award goes to Justin Bieber. Seriously, what?

    Adam Lambert – Jacket and vest a skoosh too tightAlanis Morissette – She’s never been a fashion plate but this would have been okay if it ended at the knee
    Amy Heidemann – Cute. This looks works all around.
    Anne V – Too boring to even be a fug
    Audrina Patridge – Ho
    Bleona Qereti – Star Trek ho
    Carly Steel – Wrong shoes & tights
    Cheryl Hines – This is so wrong. The dress makes her look thick waisted, the color washes her out and the shoes look cheap
    Christa B. Allen – Mediocre effort. The dress doesn’t really help define her waist
    Ellie Goulding – Boring look, bad hair
    Erica Dasher – Slutty office wear
    Heidi Klum – *sigh*  This could have been cute if she had gotten it lined. Even more so if she had not matched her underwear to her shoes.
    Hillary Scott – Boring
    Jennifer Hudson – I don’t care how skinny she gets, she’s too knocked kneed to wear mini skirts
    Jennifer Lopez – It’s a perfect JLo diva dress
    Jennifer Morrison – Ugly dress
    Jenny McCarthy – I liked this look, even the shoes. I wish she had worn the glasses on the RC because I think they help sell the shoes with this dress.
    John Legend – UGH! That suit does not fit and he looks like he has lady hips
    Julia Kurbatowa – Boring
    Julie Bowen – I think this works. She doesn’t look like and older gal trying to be hip, but she’s dressed correctly for the event
    Justin Bieber – I think he was trying to dress up to match his girlfriend’s look, but he just looks like a ventriloquist dummy to me. I wish he had genuinely commented to the look and gotten the pants properly fitted and worn an actual pair of shoes.
    Katherine Heigl – Irrationa HATE! I’m pretty sure when she left Grey;s she thought she as going to be the next darling of the rom-coms. She’s not. No she just seems to be making bad try hard attempts at getting attention and failing. This is yet another FAIL.
    Katy Perry – Not a bad look, but the shoe should have been either a gray color or a shade close to her hair color. We don;t need every color of the rainbow.
    Lance Bass – Looks like he’s wearing his father’s suit.
    Mary J. Blige – Not bad but a more saturated color would have looked better on her.
    Nicki Minaj – I like the look, but why does she always pose crazy eyed for pictures?
    Taylor Swift – Still boring after all these years

    And Bieber looks like my Ken doll in the 80s/early 90s whenever I put him in an outfit that wasn’t his short shorts and cropped net top (oh Gay Ken, I miss you). They were always too big in the shoulders so you could get him into them, and it make him look like a box on a stick with a head. And I think he had a velvet tux at some point.

    Amy Heidemann takes the Ladies’ Division, though she really ought to be top three, but the rest of the gang just didn’t impress.  I mean, when Ms. Lopez and Ms. McCarthy make a strong positive impression, the field is not deep. Katy Perry is first runner up, and I can’t decide between Ms. Minaj or Ms. McCarthy for 3rd.

    A day without Nicki Minaj is like a day without sunshine. Kudos for going with a softer pink wig that wouldn’t fight for attention with the bright green skirt. I love the nightgown Jennifer Cameron is wearing! She should have never gone blonde, though. It washes her out no matter what color she has on and actually detracts from her beauty.

    Jenny McCarthy, JLo and of course Nicki Minaj get Ins.  A whoole lotta slutty slutty slutty up there, and a lot of boring.  Anyone besides me think Jenny McC has had some, er … “work” done? 

  • Ummmm…think if you’d been looking above the crotch Adam Lambert may not have looked quite so “sausage-y” to you. Eyes up People! J-Lo looks her age. Really Darlings…Niki Minaj needs to stop getting her clothes from the kids dress up dept at Walmart And, can’t she wear some shoes she can actually WALK in?  Mary J? You wore your giant Cobra costume from Halloween? Jennifer Hudson needs to stop wearing her little sisters clothes, even if they are all glittery & shiny. And BEIBER! Honestly, what can you say. The kid needs a stylist..BAD. He looks like Bellatrix Lestrange & the Phantom of the Opera’s illegitimate son? daughter? whatever.

    Jennifer Hudson’s problem is not the high-waist, it’s the SHORT length. Just make it longer and it would be a complete WERQ for me 🙂

    Vampire lesbian….hahaaaaaaahahaaaa! Counselor Troi…..bahahahahaha! 

    JLo is looking pretty divatastic but for me it’s Nicki Minaj FTW (except for the fact she couldn’t walk in her shoes). Love it.

  • Love Julie Bowen’s dress!  Don’t mind a good peep toe, me.

    It looks like bad lighting and unforgiving photography are making everyone look even worse (washed out, squinty or google eyed, slumped, etc.). Kind of like the horrifyingly depressing “candid” shots my mother likes to take of all of us and distribute around the holidays (Happy New Year! You look like crap!).

    I disagree with the verdict on Katy Perry’s shoes. I love that they don’t match, but they appear to be playing on a color in her hair accessory. Generally fabulous, I say!

    I think the exact phrase for the Bieb is “vampire lesbian of Sodom.” Yes? Whereas Adam Blambert is more of “Wayne Newton does a Western –some D-list version of MAVERICK or something — in 1962 and gains 20 pounds during filming but there isn’t time or budget to take out his costume, so he’s stuck wearing corsets and holding his breath.”

    Is Justin Bieber wearing black tennis shoe WEDGES?!?  That is a fashion crime against humanity!

  • I’m such a lemming today…love Jenny McCarthy and Julie Bowen’s dresses. Their dresses. That’s it. Hate their shoes and hair. I am really digging on the Vicky B. dresses lately.  I’m sad about Heidi’s because with a slip or lining, that could have been a really cute dress.

  • I lost it at babyhead boobs and fell over on vampire lesbian.  You complete me, TLo.

  • Damien Washington

    I think I would try to walk a carpet in Julie Bowen’s 5-inch icepick heels before I called them boring.

    Memo to Adam Lambert: You are not now, nor will you ever be Chris Colfer. Deal with it.

  • Did everyone, Adam Lambert included, get a boob job for the event? Haven’t seen that many baby heads since I visited the nursery. I thought it was so sweet that the Biebs combed his hair. Someone teach Ellie Goulding how to stand. I thought she was pregnant at first. Nicki Minaj looks like she was caught unexpectedly. But the dress is killah! I had to look at Bieber again. Velvet and tucked into his pants. Awww. Maybe his taste is poor enough that he did actually hook up with that tattooed and pierced girl. 

  • What’s with this pose where it looks like the woman’s right arm is dislocated? She’s still expected to show off the clutch that’s glued into her right hand, so she just swings it to the front of her body?

    Vampire lesbian. “Gays in badly-fitted suits” club. I love you guys for adding so much laughter to my days.

  • Nicki Minaj looks fantastic. What a fabulous dress.

    I cannot believe I actually like something Nicki Minaj is wearing! But I must be getting old because for a couple of these dresses I was like damn, does it always have to be so booty bumping short? Bieber and Lambert look ridiculous to me, as they always do.

  • Jennifer Morrison’s dress looks like one of those pretty lingerie dresses from Frederick’s or Victoria’s Secret.

    Lesbian Vampire in high-heeled sneakers.  Where’s the low-necked sweater, Lo-retta?

    Katy’s dress is fabulous.  I also really dig Adam’s outfit if it fit better, and he’d do something different with his hair.

    And I’m about to say two things I don’t think I’ve ever said before…I like J Lo’s dress, and I like Nikki Minaj’s dress.

    A few of my first impressions:

    ADAM LAMBERT:  GIrlfriend is becoming a caricature of herself
    ALANIS MORISETTE:  Do I look fat in this dress?
    AMY HEIDEMAN:  Don’t know who she is and her style isn’t to my liking but she’s well put together and is obviously having a great deal of fun with it.  You go girl!
    ANNE V:  Real Housewife of Hoochie Ville.  Typical bleached blonde look.
    ELLIE GOULDING:  I don’t even know what I’m looking at and the hair is hideous and unhealthy looking
    ERICA DASHER:  Vampire executive assistant
    HEIDI KLUM:  I see Paris,  I see France…
    JENNIFER HUDSON:  She’s starting to look like a bobble head
    JENNIFER LOPEZ:  Expected.  Yawn.
    JENNY MCCARTHY:  Really cute dress.  The shoes are a WTF. A simple pointy toed black pump would have pulled the look together nicely
    JUSTIN BEIBER:  I can’t.  Too easy.
    MARY J BLIGE: Get up.  Now get out of that ugly dress.
    NICKI MINAJ:  Looks like she just got goosed

    ROFL @ Counselor Troi!…you guys are ALWAYS great for a laugh!

    It’s so funny how a lot of these people ( this post and others ) have no clue how ill fitting and bad their clothes look..comes with being a rising star over night and nobody to guide them…OR as my sainted Mother used to say: “You can’t shine shit”.

    Vampire lesbian…..Baby head boobs….Adam Lambert…..I can’t control my giggles 

  • Mary Gallagher

    Love Amy Heidemann! She’s 1/2 of the duo, Karmin. Love them to pieces!

  • Vampire Lesbian!!!  Best comment of the night.  

    And who the HELL are these people?  I’ve never heard of most of them!!!

  • Wait, did I just think Nikki Minaj is best dressed? That’s really saying something.  I’m also pretty over those platform pumps.  I think they just make women’s feet look fat and clunky.

    Adam Lambert looks foolish at this  point.  There is only so far you can take that glam rocker fairy schtick and he passed about 10lbs ago.  Amy Heideman wants everyone to know she can be the next katy Perry!  See?  Retro hair – check.  Short skirt – check.  Colorful accesories – check.   J-Lo committed a one sleeved crime against humanity, ugh.  I LOVE Julie Bowens dress and don’t even mind the shoes.  Nicki Minaj looked great in that gown, stunning but when you can’t even walk across the stage unassisted and STILL stumble, your shoes are too high and not meant to be worn.  Taylor swift?  I really, really don’t like her but this dress was wurprisingly good on her.

  • Even with the “wrong shoes,” I think Katy Perry had one of the best looks for the night. Say what you will about the girl, at least she’s not a boring dresser!

  • Love the J.Lo dress, Bieber is lols, and while I like what Julie Bowen is wearing I think she’s a tad too thin to pull it off.

    And I’m going to bring Baby Head Boobs into everyday conversation, everywhere.

    Ok, Jenny killed the carpet handsdown. JLO, seriously, if you are going to revisit Beyonce did it have to be that dress? Now, this is off the topic, but there is something in Bieber that is making my alarms set-off; if he goes Chris Brown “all of a sudden” just rewind back to this photo and see the crazy unfold. Anyway Jenny, even though she is wearing Beckham, killed it. Everyone else they are too rich to be so taxing on the mediocre. Where’s the flavor around here?

  • I already love you TLo, but the Counselor Troi joke made my heart explode! YES.
