Best and worst dressed from the AMA's 2014

Ariana Grande, performance, black lace gown, american music awards, taylor swift, green two piece, mesh dress

I really love doing these posts - it's one of my favourite things to do after an awards ceremony - diving through the red carpet photos to find my favourites. Today it's the turn of the American Music Awards which took place last night. My usual two best girls didn't walk the carpet this year but I still wanted to show them, because they looked incredible. I love Taylor in green and a two piece and although this is technically a dress it totally worked for me. I also loved that she changed up her usual make up and went for a more sun kissed look. To be honest Ariana without the signature ponytail just kills it, she's so tiny and looks gorgeous in anything - this black gown is just so grown up and sexy

 The Good

It would be easy for me to dedicate this space everytime to the same old people whose style I always love (Lucy Hale, Taylor Swift, Ariana, Selena...) but I want to give some space to the people who were more a surprise. Monochrome was definitely the winning theme for me this year with some beautiful simple pieces. I love how understated this Alexander Wang dress is for Nicki and the cut is such a gorgeous shape for  her. Kate looks amazing and elegant (not sure about the necklace though!). Khloe has really come into her own lately, completely owning her shape - she's by far my favourite of the Kardashian clan here wearing Versus. I can't quite believe the transformation Ella Henderson has gone through, she has come so far since X-Factor and is doing us Brits really proud over the pond. Again her dress is simple but looks perfect.

The Bad

Trouser suits are just not great for the red carpet I think especially when done like this. Both Gigi and Zendaya decided to do the bra top thing and I just don't like it - even a nice longline would have worked better. I think my problem with Gigi's Prabal Gurang suit is the fit, I love the trousers but I just don't think the jacket works great with them - I'd have preferred to see her lose the jacket and just go with a crop top. I don't think there is any saving that Georgine outfit for Zendaya but again I think the trousers could have worked alone with a different top. The less said about 'Albanian Madonna' recording artist (?) Bleona the better - WTF? Even Rihanna couldn't get away with the body stocking look. Kylie in Alexandre Vauthier is just too 'dressing up in my mums clothes from the 80s'/wearing a silk bed sheet for me. I know she's trying to mature but it would be nice to see her dress a bit closer to her age and go for the pretty with a rocky edge that she's famous for. Also the lips are just TOO MUCH and look a little silly now.

So there we have it. I'd love to know which looks you were digging from the AMA's - let me know in the comments. 

Thanks for reading.
