The 2012 American Music Awards took place last night and though the performances were the main attraction, we were just as excited about the fashion on the red carpet. Since this awards show is less formal than most, looks can run the gamut from high fashion and formal to edgy and dressed down. This year’s turnout yielded a sampling of both.

A few celebrities went for fashion statements that were out-of-the-box (like Brandy’s daring dress) while others went for a winning formula that works everytime (shout out to Kelly). Even the guys stepped it up this year, atleast in terms of footwear.

Check out a few of the looks we loved and others that left us scratching our heads.

  • Ginny Frawley

    Kerr. Is. So. Pretty.

    Kelly Rowland is the best dressed, followed by B-Rocka and Onika. Kerry’s dress is too long. It would be chic if it had Kelly’s hemline. Jordan Sparks’ dress is just awful.

  • Rue

    Brandi=”a large dog attacked me, ripped off my clothes and then had the audacity (sp?) to pee on me too!! help!”

  • Myrl22

    Kelly rowland has the winning look… sparkly and fit…. go figure

  • who run the world?…GOD!

    Kerry always gets it right! Brandy & Kelly look like perfection…& that’s all folks!

  • Pink Lipstick

    I’m so waiting for Nicki Minaj’s 15 mins of fame to be up already…

  • JN

    The funny thing is, if she had gone with black hair and a different color fabric (royal blue, maybe), it would have been passible (it’s still a lot of fabric for one garment).
