2013 American Music Awards: Best dressed

Now that the glitter and hairspray has settled, let’s check out the crème de la crème of the American Music Awards red carpet, from the subtle to the flamboyant.

Well, the 2013 American Music Awards have come and gone in typical extravagant fashion! Now we can reflect. We loved Jennifer Lopez’s beautiful Celia Cruz tribute and Rihanna’s performance; we could have done with a little less R.Kelly straddling Lady Gaga.

But you know what we were absolutely coconuts about? Some of those red carpet ensembles! These women sure know their couture. We kept our selection semi-colourful and varied, since half of the red carpet outfits were white this year, for some inexplicable reason.

1. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus beat Nicole Richie and Kendall Jenner for our “Best White Outfit of the Night” spot. We loved Miley’s look; the suit is clean and modern, and it compliments the singer’s petite twerking frame. Of course, this level of sophistication did not last the whole evening; Cyrus changed into a skimpy cat-printed two-piece for her performance later that night. Oh well, it was refreshing nonetheless!

2. Naya Rivera

Glee actress Naya Rivera amped up the sexiness in this black ensemble. The body-hugging Michael Kors gown was incredibly flattering and the cleavage cut out was very tastefully handled, so the actress managed to be sultry and classy at the same time. That’s a show stopping dress right there!

3. Katy Perry

Katy Perry looked sweet and adorable in this Oscar de la Renta gown. The singer kept her look very subdued, especially in comparison to the other red carpet attendees last night. We love the length of the gown, the fit and the delicateness of the fabric; the retro print was a perfect balance of whimsy and chic.

4. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga casually trotted onto the red carpet wearing a lavender Versace gown, whilst sitting atop a faux horse made of people. . . Nothing strange about that! We liked that the singer settled on a simpler ensemble. She looks like a character from Game of Thrones. As to the horse, we have no comment.

5. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is always on everybody’s Best Dressed list, isn’t she? The singer wore a glittery Julian MacDonald mini dress and still looked cute as a button. The dress suited her elven frame perfectly. Plus. . . check out those strappy heels! We like! To be perfectly honest, we could do without the blown out Dallas-esque hair (a la Sue Ellen Ewing), but everything else is spot on.

What is your favourite look of the night?
