Celebrity Style. Styling and Profiling at the 2007 American Music Awards. Second City Style Fashion Blog

November 19, 2007 • Celebrity Style

The American Music Awards is usually not a great event for stellar fashion, this we know. Yet, it is a fashion runway of fun and sometimes…horrors. Last night’s was no exception. Actually, it was rather lame tame compared to what we have grown to expect. Unlike the Emmy’s or Oscar’s, it seems no celeb knows what the dress code ought to be so the fashions run the gamut from casual to black tie…we prefer the later.

Here we rate the red carpet, press room and stage of this fashion free-for-all.

Beyonce bustin’ out all over. If you can get past the exposed boobage, you will notice the color and fit are bad.

Fergie in Dsquared on the red carpet. The Favorite Pop or Rock Female Artist winner could have tried harder

Let’s look at the many faces (or outfits) of Alica Keys. It goes downhill from here. She looks ultra glam on the red carpet. Love the Giorgio Armani dress, but hate the shoes with the dress.

Here is Alicia in the press room. The dress is too short and the sleeves overwhelm her. We also hate matchy-matchy shoes.

Alicia performing in a form-fitting jumpsuit a la JLo. Here is the deal, if you are Sharon Stone or Alicia Keys…OK anyone, avoid they Lycra jumpsuit! Seriously. This outfit makes Alica look hippie and I’m sure that’s a look we/she would like to avoid.

Unfortunately, this (Dolce &
Gabbana) is the best Avril Lavigne is going to look all night.

Christina Applegate on the red carpet looking fab. Work it.

Rihanna (the Favorite Female Soul/Rhythm & Blues Artist winner) on the red carpet. I hate everything about this look. I want to pin back or chop off that hair in the middle of her face. The Armani Privé (yikes) dress is too big in the hips, looks strange over the chest and her shoes are all wrong.

This is slightly better, but the hair!

Kellie Pickler may be dumb as dirt, but she’s bright enough to kill this dress. I would have chosen better shoes, but not bad especially for this event.

Queen Latifah on the red carpet. I only wish she glammed it up a bit more, but she Knows her figure and what works on her.

Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale proving that too much sparkle isn’t a good thing. Clashing for attention, neither wins.


Carrie Underwood proving if you have 3 awards, you are well dressed!

    I am having a hard time getting an answer on this, but am trying. No idea yet. I added the names of the designers to the dresses I could find. I will keep trying to locate the designer.
