Best Dressed at the 2012 AMA’s

I tuned into the 40th Annual American Music Awards on Sunday night for obvious reasons- the fashion!

There was an overwhelming amount of golds, nudes, and sequins on the carpet this year & I loved it!

Here were my picks for the best dressed of the night:

Gotta give credit to Carly Rae Jepsen! I love this dress – she looks so simple & elegant…plus, I’m a sucker for sequins 🙂
Heidi Klum is always stunning, but she is truly radiant in gold! This dress reminds of a spiced up version of Britney’s black lace mini at the VMA’s circa 2001. Credit
One of my favorite Taylor Swift dresses to date! I adore everything about this look! Make up, hair, shoes – adore! Credit.
I think it’s impossible for me NOT to include Carrie Underwood on a Best Dressed list. She never fails to impress – I’ve said it a bajillion times – human perfection! Credit.
Jenny McCarthy is one hot mama!! I love this look! Credit.
Kelly Rowland always impresses as well! She looked fabulous in this mini! Credit.
Normally, Nicki Minaj confuses the life out of me when it comes to her red carpet appearances – I’m always trying to figure out what message she is attempting to send with her out of the ordinary looks – but at the AMA’s this year, she actually looked adorably put together. This lime green / yellow Monique Lhuillier gown was very flattering to her figure – I must say…love it :). Credit.

Who do you think had the best Red Carpet look at the AMA’s this year?

2012 Grammy Recap

Another awards show has come and gone, and boy was it an interesting one.

We watched at our apartment and filled up on far too many finger foods! (I was on a roll in the kitchen yesterday!)

Rice crispies, fresh mozz, bruschetta, pigs in a blanket, nachos and peanut butter cookies 🙂

We all got our tweeting fingers ready and settled in for the pre-show (obviously the best part ;))

Let’s start with the red carpet- the good, the bad, and the ugly! We’ll get the bad out of the way…and let me be clear…it was quite difficult to narrow it down.

1) I love Nicki Minaj- it’s hard not to love her. But between this sac-religious mockery, and her on stage exorcism…I just don’t get. But I guess that’s what makes her Nicki! *Sigh*

2) Who even is this? Her ploy to get me to google her didn’t work.

3) Fergie deemed this dress the “safe” choice. Honestly, if she had cute little black underwear on as opposed to the control top spanx, it would have saved the dress.

On to my faves!

4) I’ve got to give props to Giuliana, she’s not even an artist, but she might as well have been! This skinny mini always looks adorable, but I LOVED her LBD and gold belt last night- a nice little ode to the Grammys 😉 She’s so cute!

5) Kelly Rowland looked STUNNING. She’s so talented, classy, and professional- this completely exudes that.

I couldn’t help but notice her hair was very Jessica Simpson-esque circa 2005 (@ the MTV Movie Awards).

Ugh, I died for J. Simps- she was such a babe.

6) And then there was Carrie Underwood- this woman is so perfectly beautiful, talented, and absolutely phenomenal that she can do no wrong. Out of all the high neck-long sleeved dresses last night, she is the only one that I think was able to pull it off flawlessly!

As for the show, I think that Jennifer Hudson did such an amazing job with her Whitney Tribute! However, I couldn’t help waiting for her double, wearing white, to come out and sing next to her. I’ve been brainwashed by weight watchers!

Taylor Swift is my girl, she did her thing with Mean!

And of course Adele was the big winner, every time she got to the mic she reminded me of Bridget Jones lol- she was cute, she deserved all that she got! (AND she had a Louboutin mani! LOVEEE!)

Rihanna’s performance was fun, but I officially prefer my boyfriends version of “We Found Love” over the original! Check it out 🙂
