GLAM OR SHAM?: Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and More at the 2011 American Music Awards
Celebs stepped out in style last night at the 2011 American Music Awards. From champagne to leopard print, show-stopping gowns flooded the red carpet for the star-studded festivities.
Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Heidi Klum and more looked so unbelievably glam while Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj left us wishing pink hair would go away for good. Check out the most exciting looks of the night and tell us who was GLAM and who was a burning SHAM!
Jennifer Lopez can do no wrong when it comes to dressing for Awards shows, in my opinion at least. She wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Couture black floral lace gown with gorgeous embroidery and a one shoulder neckline. It was so glamazing that I’m sure her ex-hubby, Marc Anthony, who performed after her was wishing they could be back together again. (Great dresses can do that, you know). GLAM!
Nicki Minaj toned down the weirdness just a bit and wore an Oscar de la Renta emerald silk taffeta gown with black lace. She paired it with a pair of Alexander McQueen armour wedged sandals. And of course, to finish off the look, she threw on a pink wig in typical Nicki fashion. Still GLAM!
Are you ready for this, Glamazons? For the 2011 AMAs, Taylor Swift wore…sequins! Surprise, surprise. (Insert sarcasm). She looked chic as usual in a shimmering champagne Reem Acra gown and actually gave us some color this time with a pair of emerald earrings. GLAM, but by default.
In what is probably my second favorite look of the night, Heidi Klum rocked a metallic Giles sheath dress that is just to-die-for! I especially loved her wavy hair and the smokey eye, perfect compliments. GLAM GLAM GLAM! (As if she could ever give anything less…)
Oh, Katy Perry. The singer wore a very “California Girl”-like ensemble to the awards with a fun, flirty Vivienne Westwood gown and blue pumps. But she couldn’t stop there. Katy added a geometrical fascinator and pink hair dye, you know, to make the look unique. It was fine without the crazy accoutrements. SHAM.
Werk, Selena Gomez! Justin Bieber’s girlfriend stepped out in a champagne Giorgio Armani silk gown with a fringed tie at the waist. Without showing too much skin, Gomez looked elegant and mature but still fun and youthful. LOVE! Do you think the look is a GLAM or a SHAM? (P.S. Selena and Taylor were too cute sitting next to each other last night at the awards in their champagne gowns!) I say GLAM.
Mary J. Blige hit the red carpet in a Roberto Cavalli single-sleeved leopard print gown. Not only have we seen the look before, but I’m not sure Mary pulled it off. (Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Queen of Hip Hop soul, but she just didn’t blow me away this time). I have to go with SHAM for her.
So there we have it, Glamazons. What did you think of the looks at the 2011 AMAs? Tell us who you think was GLAM and who was a SHAM.
