The 2015 American Music Awards celebrated the best of music as voted by the fans and public last night. This award show first began back in 1973 and since has seen many historic performances throughout the years. Of course, besides the music it’s the fashion on the red carpet that has everyone talking. However, this year the red carpet seemed pretty underwhelming. It seemed as if the most dominant trend was to play it safe and boring or go to the extreme of trying too hard sexiness which translated into cheap and slutty. Then on the other extreme there were some that brought dramatic gowns with trains, again not a fit for this type of show. Not sure what happened to a lot of the stylists to the stars last night. Did they leave their understudies in charge? There were so many celebrities just not dressing ‘the part’ for this event. It’s a night to celebrate music and although taking a risk is encouraged, it just fell pretty flat in general. I think we are all over the capes, top knot hair style and honestly, sheer nude gowns needs to really take a vacation very soon.
Jennifer Lopez played host for the first time and she is usually the one every human on the planet tunes in to watch. Well, she did not disappoint! Lucky for us she did not open the show with a scripted set of yawn worthy jokes or commentary, she played her strengths by performing a high energy, very entertaining dance medley of this year’s top hits. For the remainder of the night, she continued to showcase at least ten incredible looks. Like her or not, the woman loves fashion and it certainly showed all night. Here is our small but noteworthy roundup of what we appreciated from the red carpet. What were some of your favorites last night at the AMAs.
