Once again, L.A welcomed the American Music Awards (AMA) at the Nokia Theatre, where fans ultimately chose the most prominent singers and music acts of the year.
Nominated artists and other celebrities that were in attendance included Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Jennifer Lopez. Major winners of the night Taylor Swift and Adele (each taking home 3 awards) were also in attendance.
Many celebrities attended and looked amazing on the red cart, where large formal dresses and short dresses seemed to be the night’s trend. Others, were not well put together in their overall presentation and were highly criticized by the media.
Glitter dresses were in heavy rotation on AMA’s photocall; highlights of the night included Taylor Swift’s Champagne dress (Reem Acra) and Selena Gomez (Giorgio Armani) and Heidi Klum who both wore silver ensembles.
As usual, not-so-traditional black dresses were of choice by artists such as Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. Lopez, who performed her chart-topping hit “On the Floor” with Pitbull chose a lace and transparent look by Zuhair Murad Haute Couture, while Heidi chose a low cut black dress which was cut low in the rear.
Male guests in attendance such as DJ David Guetta and singer Joe Jonas preferred a more casual (yet well put together) look, mixing black jeans with a formal blazer and casual shirt; undoubtedly a youthful and modern look vs. that of female celebrities in attendance.

Pink is one of those colors you love or you hate. Throughout the years, it’s been practically engraved in our culture that pink is the color of femininity.
