American Music Awards 2012 Red Carpet

Posted on November 19, 2012

No awards ceremony that dubs Justin Bieber the Artist of the Year deserves a moment of consideration, but there are dresses to rip, so we feel compelled to offer bitchy, drive-by assessments, darlings.

Hit it, chanteuses and contractually obligated ABC stars!

 

Brandy

 Uh… no. It’s like a strong wind ripped away parts of her dress. And those tiger booties are an awful choice.

 

Carly Rae Jepsen in Gomez-Gracia

It’s alright. We’re thinking halters are Not Her Neckline. She looks small up top.

 

Carrie Underwood in Abed Mahfouz

 We don’t love the high neckline on her but we’re so thrilled she’s in a rich color for once that we don’t care. This might be a personal best for her.

 

Elisha Cuthbert in Georges Chakra

 Not a bad dress, but blondes need to be careful about picking golds that don’t match their hair color too closely. Also: this needed hemming.

 

Ginnifer Goodwin in Oscar de la Renta

Sad crazy doll.

 

Glora Estefan

 It’s a little standard in a lot of ways, but kudos to her for wearing such an unusual color.

 

Hayden Panettiere in Giorgio Armani

 The dress is okay, but the accessories are terrible. She definitely needed pops of color. And her makeup looks weird to us.

 

Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier

 We are so not loving the high necklines and cap sleeves we’re seeing lately. Maybe because they’re on the wrong gals. Curvy ones should stay away. Her boobs look squished. Don’t even get us started on the slit and the matchy shoes. This is bad, Heidster.

 

Jennifer Morrison in Abed Mahfouz

 Credit where it’s due: it’s really dramatic, which is not normally in her wheelhouse. The Angelina stance is unfortunate, as is the shoe choice. We could’ve done without the weird shoulder thingies.

 

Jenny McCarthy in Dolce&Gabbana

 Uh… okay. Kind of an odd look. Not bad, exactly, just … odd. We’re not so sure on the Sheena Easton hair and the skirt looks a bit too tight.

 

Jordin Sparks in Etro

 Oh, honey, NO. This is hideous.

 

Kelly Rowland in Naeem Khan

 Very cute.

 

Kerry Washington in Stella McCartney

 It’s different, we’ll give it that. Beautiful color, but we hate the accessories she chose and the dress looks too big on her.

 

Kesha

 It’s cute when they try to dress normally, isn’t it? Like putting a sweater on a cat.

 

Lucy Hale in Elizabeth and James

 It’s a shame it’s so wrinkled, because it’s kind of a cute look on her. The lip clutch is fun.

 

Nicki Minaj in Monique Lhuillier

 Fabulous and cray.

 

Pink in Catherine Deane

 Interesting, but the shape does nothing for her. That bodice is way too Xena.

 

Stacy Keibler in Collette Dinnigan

Jesus Christ, those legs are INSANE. Work ’em, girl!

 

Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad

 Pretty, but colorless. This could also apply to the dress.

 

Zendaya Coleman in Alice + Olivia

 Kinda fun.
