Under chilly, rainy Los Angeles skies, an oxymoron onto itself, the 44th Annual American Music Awards happened last night. Just like the slogan of the United States Postal Service “Come rain or shine we deliver” the AMAs happened and deliver they did, both on the red carpet and center stage!
The 2016 American Music Awards( affectionately known as the AMAs) is the largest fan voted awards show
Bruno Mars kicked off the 2016 AMAs show with a high-energy and contagious rendition of “24K Magic.”
Right out of the gate, we must acknowledge the every-changing delightful style choices of one of then night’s co-hosts, supermodel Gigi Hadid. Youthful, boho, edgy, and classic, she covered all the bases with her 6 outfit changes for the evening. From the top down she nailed every single look making it impossible to pick a favorite!
Gigi Hadid wearing Roberto Cavali
Gigi Hadid wearing Atelier Versace
A stunning and more glitzy take on the track suit. Gigi Had wearing a see-through Atelier Versace two-piece tracksuit
Gigi makes a strikingly statuesque figure in this deep black Nicolas Jebran gown
Nude never looked so dressed! Gigi Hadid wears a croc print cut out gown by Julien MacDonald
Other looks that stunned on the carpet ranged from simple and classic, which added to their boldness, to risque and oddly voyeuristic.
Selena Gomez in Prada was very Grace Kelly-inspired in her triumphant return to the red carpet
Lady Gaga in a striking and strong Brandon Maxwell white suit proved that she is a true BOSS
Janelle Monae broke down her red carpet style in black and white with help from her friends at Michael Kors. Simple, clean and elegant
Garcelle Beauvais, in a printed Masaki Matsuka dress, proved that yellow doesn’t always have to be mellow…..this yellow is M-E-O-W!
The girls of Fifth Harmony were all in sync. From left Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui, Normani Hamilton, Ally Brooke and Camila Cabello
Kat Graham in a Labourjoisie netted caftan. Unexpected, but very “catchy”
Lose the kitschy pink shades, and Keke Palmer’s metallic Natalia Fedner two piece micro mini, with a playful pink fox fur, was simply smoking
Micro shorts were on the menu for some of the ladies last night, including the “hostess with the mostess” Gigi Hadid herself.
Sgt. Pepper ain’t got nothing on Gigi Hadid in her military-inspired Julien MacDonald shorts ensemble
Hailee Steinfeld in an elaborately embellished Elie Saab romper
Nina Dobrev in Zuhair Murad
Lacy and racy! Lace touches came out of the boudoir and sashayed onto the red carpet last night looking sultry, sexy and sizzling!
Teyana Taylor in a killer black lace gown by Steven Khalil
Ariana Grande in a vintage lace bustier and tuxedo pants by Alexander McQueen
Hanna Davis in a Zuhair Murad gown left very little to the imagination, but thankfully it will evoke great memories
Some that stood our for all the wrong reasons may be up for debate
Instead of being a “brick house” Heidi Klum achieved gold brick status. Not our favorite look from the style icon
Joan Smalls’ outfit was no picnic in the park. Wrong dress for the wrong occasion . Oh heck, it was just a WRONG dress!
Another model bites the dust…. Karlie Kloss in her Atelier Versace was a definite jumbled miss for us
We are confused by Olivia Munn in this Reem Acra mini dress/skort….we’re not sure what or why it is!
Taraji P. Hensen in her basic white Celine shirtdress was perhaps the biggest shocker for us because it was just so blah. Relying on your bra to be your WOW is not a safe bet
Tinashe in her Steven Khalil gown looked like a butterfly half way through metamorphosis. Not our favorite look on such a small framed person.
Usually were aren’t so conservative, but Chrissy Teigen’s crack (oops we mean slit) was just too much info for us. Reports have it that you could see, London and France, but no underpants
Where’s the beef?
In a time where laughter is so needed in our society, it’s nice to be able to get some levity and see the less serious side of things. We kid because we care!
