Red Carpet: The 2010 American Music Awards  

Sunday, the 2010 American Music Awards took place and *gasp* for the first time in a looong time, I saw more good looks than bad! The celebs have definitely stepped up their style-game this time around...and I hope they keep it coming!

The Good

I thought that newlywed Katy Perry looked very pretty in a pink Badgley Mischka Couture gown. I guess we can thank Russell for that glow that she's emanating.

Kelly Osborne has really been doing an amazing job at consistently keeping her fab! Her hair and makeup gave her a soft  feminine look, and this Dior gown looked amazing on her! The only part of her look that kept her from flawlessness are those awful tattoos. Ugh.

I don't frequently wave the Keri flag, but right about now I am TEAM KERI! Keri Hilson looked gorgeous in this Sammy B gown and was accessorized perfectly.

I'm still trying to figure out what the back of this gown was doing (I pray to God that it isn't a bow and wouldn't think the folks at Marchesa would do that), but from the front view, Miley Cyrus was stunning! The 18-year old has finally transitioned into adulthood, and it suits her!

Parents-to-be, Pink and Carey Hart get my Cutest Couple award of the evening. And sorry Pink, but Carey was bringing the umph that night. He looked pretty darn hot.

This is the one and only time you will hear me say that Rihanna's fiery red 'do looks good BUT, I'm not giving her the credit. I still maintain it is a bad decision and needs to go ASAP. For the life of me, I cannot understand why she won't let it go. However, for this moment only, I'm giving the credit to Elie Saab for creating a beautiful gown that happened to match this hair, and Rihanna's hair stylists who made this hair look real for once and saved it from its usual Raggedy Annish state. This is the Rhi Rhi I miss.

Is it just me or lately has Jada Pinkett Smith managed to look like a little bronze Emmy award on every red carpet?...Oh well, this was no exception. She glowed (literally and figuratively) in this custom Emilio Pucci gown...and she certainly always knows how to accessorize.

The Bad

This gown that Christina Milian is wearing is doing everything, but IT. I just don't understand...why is there so much going on?Do I look at the embellished shoulders or the sheer cleavage or the shape that the silver material creates? Do I try to figure out if the sheer material is lace, chiffon, or both? Should I wonder if a simple shoe/boot would've fared better than that matchy embellished shoe? Well you know what? I don't know, I'm tired of thinking, my eyes are tired, and I give up! Let's just say that her hair and makeup look great...NEXT!!!

Cheryl Burke looks great from the waist up...stunning really. The gown is pretty and is a great color too. It wasn't, however, the best pick for her body type because it accentuates her wider hips and emphasizes unbalanced proportions. Oh, and I give two thumbs down for the shoes.

Now you guys know I love me some Heidi Klum, and I hate to do this, but this dress is looking a little weird to me. Perhaps its just a bad photo (I mean, we all know Heidi has an amazing body), but why does her rise (the area between the waist and crotch) look so darn LONG?! It looks like the torso of a mannequin.

"So I'm just going to go get my nails done, have lunch with a friend, and maybe stop by the AMA's..." Yeah, that's what I imagined Natasha Bedingfield saying earlier that morning. In general, nothing is wrong with this outfit...but that's just it, its an the A-M-A's. On a positive note, I'd love to wear this to work.

The Ugly

For a moment, lets just forget that the pairing of these pieces is ALL wrong; just please observe that this is...a guy.If you're a guy and want to wear women's apparel....Ok, I guess. Just please make sure you bring it.

Nicki Minaj.*sigh* So much too say, but so very little desire to bother saying it.

Phoebe Price...ditto.

Wow, somebody needs a hit song...and fast. Ke$ha is trying to steal a page from Lady GaGa's book on maintaining the spotlight. #fail

The Miscellaneous

There was nothing outstanding about Stana Katic's look. Obviously, she looks great, but her hair? Oh, that hair! It looks like it came straight out of a Pantene ad! I love it!

The Black Eyed Peas look just that...miscellaneous. I sometimes wonder if they discuss what they are wearing before they go to events or if they just go for it...

The Smith Kids. I mean, really...did you expect them to come in a gown and tux?

Taylor Swift's ensemble isn't doing anything for me (or her), but her hair and makeup look fabulous!

The Men

Ok Ne-Yo! I like! Formal brown is a tricky color to work with, but he definitely pulls this off from head to toe.

Very nice, but Trey Songz just always looks good.

Aw, isn't this cute? Boy bands, Backstreet Boys AND New Kids on the Block got together for a group photo. Why so many ill-fitted pants though?
