Red Carpet Ladies: 2008 American Music Awards

November 24th, 2008 // Leave a Comment

It was clear from the dresses being worn by the female talent on the red carpet for the American Music Awards last night that metallic prints are very big right now. Leona Lewis looked like a human cocoon in her reflective, ivory-colored gown sparkling with beading. Ashley Tisdale rocked a mini-dress that appeared to be the silver companion to Miley Cyrusgold sleeveless sheath dress.

However, Jordin Sparks and Alicia Keys opted instead for bright, rich colors for their gowns. The American Idol winner looked flirty, yet age-appropriate in a short yellow frock. And Alicia Keys struck a dramatic pose in her purple, one-shoulder gown sparkling with details all along the bodice and shoulder.

All in all, everybody–except for the usual suspects of Bai Ling (who looked like a Power Rangers villain) and Phoebe Price (whose dress was actually kind of sweet, except seriously, what is her purpose there???)–looked pretty good.

Even the Pussycat Dolls were dressed pretty demurely in short, but appropriate dresses. They were probably wearing their church clothes.

Featured in the gallery: Jordin Sparks, Brigitte Nielsen, Sarah Chalke, Natasha Bedinfield, Annie Lennox, Sarah McLachlan, Sarah Silverman, Christina Augilera, Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat, Rachel Zoe, Pink, Ashley Tisdale, Miley Cyrus, Carrie Ann Inaba, Ali Landry, Nicole Scherzinger, Toccara Jones, Shailene Woodley, Leona Lewis, Candis Cayne, Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Kat Von D, Alicia Keys, Phoebe Price, Demi Lovato, Bai Ling, Omarosa Stallworth and Queen Latifah.
