If there’s something I noticed during the 2012 American Music Awards Red Carpet arrivals, is a certain predilection for short and sparkling dresses! I was honestly expecting a lot of see – through, a myriad of one – toned, seriously minimalistic dresses. I ended up writing about short & shimmery instead…
So many stylist opted for this festive precious fashion, that all I can think about is the impending arrival of Christmas! After all, the Holidays Season is on! Now: I’ll start with my favorite look on the 2012 AMAs Red Carpet.
Taylor Swift. She’s usually flawless, so this is no exception! And since Zuhair Murad seems to be the new Marchesa for the Holywood population, Taylor was wearing a lovely dress from the designer’s pre-Fall 2012 collection. Lovely, as always! (hit the jump to see more!)
Heidi Klum’s preference for all things golden this year was obvious when she chose a golden Cleopatra costume for her annual Halloween party. Which got postponed due to Sandy. As for her Alexander Vauthier Fall 2012 Haute Couture dress – I’d say she met the Red Carpet trends halfway: see through, shimmery golden bonus the leg slit. One more trend and her entire outfit would’ve been blown out of trends proportions!
Stacy Keibler is next! George Clooney’s supposedly still on girlfriend showed up at the 2012 AMAs wearing a very nice dress from Collette Dinnigan. Also sparkling, also short. You’ll have to notice that the catwalk original model from Collette Dinnigan’s Fall Winter 2012 2013 collection is significantly longer. Sure Stacy has the right legs to pull a barely – there skirt, but the important lesson here is that short and sparkling is definitely the trend du jour!
I’d like to talk about Kelly Rowland as well, who, even though in a longer measure, took the mini sparkling trend seriously with an eye – catching Naeem Khan Fall Winter 2012 2013 dress. No flaws here!
How about Hayden Panettiere? She seems to have grown out of her boring dressy routine. Not too glamorous either, especially on the footwear section – those peep – toe slingbacks she’s so fond of for oh – too – long look bulky and awkward. No word on who was the designer of her dress, though, I looked back and forth, played video interviews and still nothing so far on Hayden’s sequined mini dress.
Have you seen Once Upon a Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin’s pretty dress? She chose a nice flowery, also sparkling dress from Oscar de la Renta’s Resort 2013 collection for this edition of the AMAs and she was walking poetry! Loved her look, loved her short hair!
And what about Ke$ha? She’s always a mess, but this time she tried her best to polish up! I thought I was seeing a poorly dressed version of Gwen Stefani, to be honest! (who, by the way, was wearing a sparkling blazer from Balmain). Back to Ke$ha: for a waist – less girl, she’s surely trying too hard to wear body – hugging outfits! But looking like a walking mess is her job. And she’s really good a it, judging from the 2012 AMAs Red Carpet alone! (images Getty, Zuhair Murad, Collette Dinnigan and style)
