Short and Sweet: The AMAs

November 19, 2012


The American Music Awards were held over the weekend and as usual, there were plenty of interesting looks. As I was scouring through the pictures I noticed most of the attendees opted for short, sassy dresses in predominantly nude hues, which worked really well at the occasion.

Kei$ha, Ginnifer Goodwin, Hayden Panetierre, Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, Stacey Keebler and Kelly Rowland were the fashionistas who chose above-the-knee lengths. Now have a look at my favorites:

:: Ginnifer Goodwin ::

 I’m pretty sure Ginnifer Goodwin is my favorite at the event. Her Oscar de la Renta dress is everything I love – feminine, youthful and sparkly. The silhouette, particularly the high neck and nipped in waist, is very classic and retro. Ginnifer always looks spectacular on the red carpet and this is no exception. Flawless makeup, with Twiggy-like lashes, a mirrored Lieber clutch and Jimmy Choo Lance sandals complete this perfect look.


:: Taylor Swift ::

Taylor Swift totally surprised me here. That updo is everything. Taylor wears an embellished gold Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2012 minidress. I always prefer minidresses with short/long sleeves – kinda balances out the flesh show. Taylor brings an elegant vibe into this look with an updo, gold earrings and slightly smoky eyes. I am so SO glad she didn’t leave her hair loose. The hair makes this look. Strappy gold Jimmy Choos work perfectly with the dress

:: Kelly Rowland ::

Kelly Rowland looks gorgeous in this Naeem Khan Fall 2012 dress. Has anyone ever looked bad in a Naeem Khan dress? I don’t think so. The military green dress is covered with nude-y taupe applique and mirrored embellishment. This length and the cap sleeves are working really well on Kelly. Dark waves and smoky eyes finish off this polished look. And oh how I love those Gucci sandals….the perfect ending.
