  • Best and Worst Dressed at the 2017 American Music Awards

    With the year coming to a close, another 2017 awards ceremony is now but memory. The 45th Annual American Music Awards took place on November 19, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. It was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross.

    With the 2017 AMAs being the last awards show of the year, the pressure was on for celebrities to make best dressed lists. Outfits had to be on-point and paired perfectly with accessories, hair, and makeup. With the pressure so high, celebs either end up succeeding with flying colors or totally missing the mark. See our picks for best and worst dressed below, and even how you can snag those best dressed styles yourself!

    With Tracee Ellis Ross hosting the event, of course she is number one on our AMAs Best Dressed list. Our favorite look of hers for the night was the gorgeous burgundy sequined gown she wore on the red carpet.

    Grab Tracee's AMAs style with Primavera 9713, a glamorous sequined gown that comes in burgundy just like her dress. This magnificent fitted gown is covered in a lively sequin print, from start to finish. Our favorite part of this dress has to be the mesmerizing illusion cutouts on the back of the dress.

    Corinne Foxx

    Corrine Foxx is taking the fashion scene head-on this year! If you haven't heard this name yet, she is actor Jamie Foxx's daughter. Earlier this year, she walked the Sherri Hill runway to show off the designer's new Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Now, she's walking award show red carpets... right next to her big-time celebrity dad, of course.Jovani 50908

    Do you recognize the jumpsuit she's wearing? If so, that's because she's rocking another one of your favorite dress designers: Jovani! The halter jersey jumpsuit she's wearing is Jovani 50908. It's a stylish and sexy choice that still oozes with elegance for any event, whether the red carpet or the prom dance floor.

    Selena went for full-on rock star at the 2017 American Music Awards. We loved her leather jacket inspired dress, and her brand new blonde hair! The black stilettos and clutch and red lips were the perfect way to finish off her rocker-chic look.

    While this is a totally original dress that's hard to duplicate, there are plenty of faux leather dresses you can choose from that are perfect for holiday parties, winter formals, or even prom.

    Selena showed off her badass side on the stage, too, debuting her latest single, "Wolves," a collaboration with Marshmellow. Check it out below!

    Lea Michele

    When does Lea Michele not look totally chic? Basically never. She chose a light pink gown that has us so ready for prom season! She kept her makeup and accessories simple to really let the sparkles on her dress stand out. Watch her twirl down the red carpet in her gown in the below video.

    Get Lea's AMAs style with Faviana 10006, and off-the-shoulder dress that features a lace bodice and chiffon skirt. It's a soft and sultry look that's sure to have you twirling around the prom dance floor just like Lea down the AMAs red carpet!

    Jenna Dewan Tatum

    With Channing Tatum by you're side, we're pretty sure there's no way to look bad. Jenna's got a style all her own, though, and she looked so gorgeous at the 2017 AMAs! She wore a sparkly nude color dress and couldn't have looked sexier. She even said on her Instagram account that this dress is one of her favorites ever!

    Shameless dress pic. Because it’s one of my favorites ever. Thank you @julienmacdonald ⭐️❤️

    To get Jenna Dewan Tatum's look for prom, go with Jovani 58506. This dress makes for a sexy choice with its all-over sparkles, side cutouts, and open back. It's a look perfect for a black tie New Year's Eve event or prom!Jovani 58506

    Worst Dressed at the 2017 AMAs

    Yara Shahidi

    While we love all that sparkles, actress Yara Shahidi has a lot going on with her AMAs look. The combination of collared shirt, dressy shorts, trench coat, and knee-high socks with heels looks more like a totally funky day-out-with-the-girls outfit, rather than a red carpet outfit.

    Madeleine Petsch

    Black dresses are perfect for any event, but there's a little too much going on with Madeleine Petsch's black dress. A black dress is all about classic elegance; keep it simple, rather than trying to fit every trend, like feathers, lace, illusion, deep v-neck, etc, all into one dress.

    Sabrina Carpenter

    We love Girl Meets World star Sabrina Carpenter, and she usually has such great style! But, she may have gone a little overboard with taking a cue from the funky styles she wears on Girl Meets World with her AMAs looks. While it's always fun to add a touch of uniqueness to your looks, keep it within limits for semi-formal and formal events.

    Julia Michaels

    We're not sure if Julia Michaels is trying to dress up as Lydia in her wedding dress from the Beetlejuice movie, a Christmas present, or a loofa Halloween costume! Either way, while bold red is a totally great color choice, the excessive layers of tulle are a little much.

    Rene Bargh

    We love army green, but it may be misplaced at a formal event, especially when paired with a statement belt like on Rene Bargh's AMA dress.

    Remember, whether on the best or worst dressed list, there are always style cues you can take and incorporate into your own outfits. So, even if there are certain elements of the worst dressed looks you loved, don't be afraid to incorporate them into your next outfit! After all, the most important thing in dressing up is choosing something you're comfortable and confident in.

  • Miranda Lambert at the 2014 ACM Awards in 2 Gorgeous Dresses

    The 2014 ACM Awards have come and gone, and they were so much fun to watch! It was held this past Sunday, April 6th, in Las Vegas. This year, the Academy of Country Music celebrated their 50th year, and it was done in such style.

    Of course, as usual Miranda Lambert was the belle of the country ball, but she does a good job showing her humbleness no matter what. The country queen took home three trophies at the ACM Awards this year, saying "I cannot believe this; I really didn't expect it." Congrats, Miranda!

    Her trophies weren't the only bling she was rocking at the awards ceremony, though. She looked so glam in her nude sparkly dress rocking the ACM Red Carpet. The tight v-neck spaghetti strapped dress fit her like a glove, and we are in love with the sparkly sequins on it!

    Nude is a popular trend right now, making Miranda's nude gown look is perfect for bringing to prom. To steal her look, check out Terani style P3131, an illusion v-neck spaghetti strap gown with sheer mesh skirt and crystal and beaded embellishments at the bust and midsection.

    Terani p3131 nude dressThat wasn't the only look that Miranda wore to this year's American Country Music Awards that's perfect of rocking at prom, though! Miranda was all about changing up her dresses at the event this year, and we were loving every look she wore. The other dress she rocked that has prom written all over it was the coral strapless lace number she wore while showing off all of her trophies in the press room after the ceremony ended.

    To get her so girly coral lace look, we're all about La Femme style 19160, a fit and flare all over short lace dress. This was also a dress we mentioned last week in our blog post about how to get Lea Michele's 2014 Kids Choice Awards look, so this is definitely a perfect dress to be rocking celebrity style at prom! Other than the Hot Coral color you see below, this dress also comes in Navy, Nude, Powder Blue, and White - so many options!

  • Brandi Cyrus Looking Perfect in Winter White at the AMAs!

    Miley Cyrus and her older half-sister Brandi Cyrus stunned all as a matching duo at the 2013 American Music Awards this past weekend, because they were both looking so sheek in white! Miley Cyrus may be the star of the past few months, and she did look so lovely in her white suit, but we're so in love with Brandi's long sleeve cocktail dress.

    brandi-cyrus-miley-cyrus-amas-red-carpet-2013

    White has been so in this year, and people will be wearing it well into the colder months. And,  Miley and Brandi definitely wore the trend perfectly! But, Brandi's look had us thinking of the Holidays, because her short number is definitely a perfect look for not only the AMAs red carpet, but for a Holiday party, too!

    If you want to wear this look to your Holiday event this year, we have so many white long sleeve cocktail dresses to choose from. Below are two of our favorites!

    Precious Formals style L9034 is a fun way to add a little glam to a white cocktail dress look like Brandi's. Silver groups of sequins accent the body, scoop neckline and sheer long sleeves of this chic-and-flirty dress.

    shail_k_kk3138

    Shail K. style KK3138 is just like Brandi's dress, just with a deep v-neck and 3/4 sleeves. It's an easy look to dress up with bold jewelry and sparkly heels, or keep toned down with simple accessories.
