AMA’s 2012: Fashion Report!

19 Nov

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone got a chance to catch the AMA’s last night because there were some outstanding performances from the biggest names in the music industry. My favourite performers of the night were definitely from The Wanted, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber! However, my overall favourite part of the show….and of every other award show… was the red carpet! This year, a ton of the stars were strutting the red carpet with intricate embroidery detail and shiny sparkles. Here are some of my favourite looks from the evening.

Left to Right: Carly Rae Jepson in Gomez-Gracia sequined gown, Hedi Klum in a Alexandre Vauthier mini, Taylor Swift in  Zuhair Murad and Carrie Underwood in a Abed Mahfouz gown. 

My favourite look of the night was brought to us by Taylor Swift!

Taylor looked flawless  in this long sleeve, floral embroidered dress with gold beadwork detail and an open back by Zuhair Murad. Her hair was styled into a retro up-do and her make-up complimented her look appropriately. This will deffinatly go down as one of my favourite Taylor Swift looks of all time!

On the other hand, Nicki Minaj looked like a  hot mess…. as always!
