Who were the style winners and sinners of the 2012 American Music Awards?
From rappers and pop stars to country darlings and hard rockers, the biggest names topping the charts hit the red carpet of the AMAs at the Nokia Theatre LA Live on Sunday, where they were dressed to rock and shock in the best, worst & wackiest fashions – and RadarOnline.com has all the photos and details about what they were wearing.
Wow, Taylor Swift certainly steamed up her look! The country cutie, who usually wears girly frocks or embellished gowns on the carpet, opted for something a whole lot shorter, tighter and sexier than usual with her sleeved and embellished Zuhair Murad nude mini paired with gorgeous gold heels. She also shied away from her trademark red lipstick, finishing off her look with nude lips and smoky eyes.
Taylor wasn’t the only star rocking a sexy, leggy look! Heidi Klum (in Alexandre Vauthier) and Stacy Keibler (in Collette Dinnigan) also flaunted their superior stems.
Carrie Underwood dropped jaws in a high-necked, powerfully purple gown, while Pink grabbed attention in a laser cut Catherine Deane bronze number.
The biggest fashion faux pas of the night was courtesy of Christina Aguilera, who on top of failing to flatter her curves in a purple chiffon asymmetrical dress, looked overly tan and was sporting an incredibly blonde and blunt haircut.
Nicki Minaj, who is usually the wackiest dressed star at every event, decided to go glam in a vibrantly hued Monique Lhuillier gown, leaving it to Cyndi Lauper and Karmin’s Amy Heidemann to sass up the carpet in eccentric style.
