What They Wore: 2012 American Music Awards with Kerry Washington, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Taylor Swift and More

Share on Pinterest


The 2012 American Music Awards were tonight and while the performances were entertaining, the red carpet was seriously underwhelming. No one gave me a moment, except of course the always flawless Kelly Rowland. Nicki Minaj repeated a memorable gown worn recently at the Emmys (some see it as a huge misstep since that was all of two seconds ago) and Taylor Swift wore a metallic dress. Snore. But let’s break down the looks one by one, shall we?

Kelly Rowland‘s red carpet game is so vicious. The “Ice” singer hit the AMAs in a embellished Naeem Khan stunner that accentuated her gorgeous legs. Long wavy hair and bronzed skin completed her glamazing look. She shut it down, guys. GLAM SLAM.

Miss Nicki Minaj went for the wow factor in a neon Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 gown that made her look like ‘red carpet gala Barbie.’ I think the big hair, pink lips and fancy jewelry are the perfect touch, don’t you? GLAM.

P to the S – I’m pretty sure critics would be completely in love with this look if everyone hadn’t just seen it at the 2012 Emmys on Julie Bowen.

Who wore it best?

Though Nicki is late boots, my vote goes to her.

Pink gave an amazing performance but kept it safe on the red carpet in a bronze gown with a leather embroidered bodice. This could have used a pop of color, but overall it’s still a pretty look. GLAM.

Oh no, Jordin Sparks. The “Sparkle” star rocked an Etro gown that was beyond unflattering. The prints and cut-outs here are just…awkward. SHAM.

Heidi Klum was every bit the golden goddess in an Alexandre Vauthier Couture Fall 2012 metallic lace dress which she paired with lace Christian Louboutin pumps and killer legs. GLAM.

Poor Christina Aguilera. The “X-Factor” judge came out in this Pamella Roland tacky ombre halter gown that looks like her stylist picked it up from the sale rack at the mall. And that blonde Cleopatra wig? This is a sad SHAM.

Taylor Swift wore a metallic embroidered dress by Zuhair Murad. Whatever. I guess I can’t be too bored mad since she fought the urge to put on that same red lipstick for the umpteenth red carpet appearance. BLEH.

I live for Ginnifer Goodwin‘s bold fashion moments. Tonight she was pretty and feminine in an Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 dress with gorgeous sparkling embellishment. Her soft makeup and silver Jimmy Choo sandals are the perfect accents. GLAM.

How adorable is Hayden Panettiere! The beauty wore a gold metallic minidress with peeptoes, a matching clutch and a bold lippie. Though her hairstyle didn’t move me, I have to say this look is cute and refreshing. GLAM.

Look at Ke$ha! The singer cleaned up in an embroidered minidress with a plunging neckline. Her black ankle strap pumps were an odd choice — but between her clean made-up face and styled hair, I’m not complaining. GLAM.

It pains me deep in my soul to say this but I wasn’t crazy about Kerry Washington‘s look tonight. That said “Scandal” is the best show on television. (Kidding…but actually serious). Ms. Olivia Pope wore a yellow Stella McCartney lace long sleeve dress and Christian Louboutin orange pumps. A Kotur yellow clutch and orange lips accentuated her look. Love the colors but the dress just doesn’t flatter. This is a…tear…SHAM.

Oh hey Brandy! The “Put It Down” singer went for a funky look in a gold and black belted dress with an asymmetrical hem and draping. She matched it up with gold and black booties. Not loving either piece but that makeup, chile? Everythaaang! Enhh…GLAM.

Justin Bieber rocked a shimmery black tank, cardigan, black and pants and red studded loafers. Pretty cool look but that gelled “There’s Something About Mary” hair is just…

Chris Brown was too cool for school in a 99% leather jacket, Bellstaff jeans and Margiela sneakers. Love the styling but the scruffy beard and hoodie are so not AMA material.

Tyga brought some color to the menswear looks in a red suit with leopard studded Christian Louboutin loafers. Umm, atleast it’s interesting?

Check out some performances from the night:
