THE 2013 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS FASHION RECAP
Last night, the American Music Awards was more like background entertainment. Some nights it’s just a challenge to sit and watch TV with two overly active toddlers. And adding a bottle of moscato during dinner did not help the situation.
Still, I caught enough to witness Rihanna’s upscale rendition of the ‘doobie wrap’, Lady Godiva…I mean Lady Gaga’s entrance on the big white horse and Miley Cyrus’ grown yet sexy pants suit.
Black women all over the world were either gawking in total admiration or in shock that Rihanna chose to wear a ‘doobie’ wrap to compliment her Jean Paul Gaultier ensemble. Let’s just say the ‘doobie’ is equivalent to wearing hair rollers to the grocery store. But, Rihanna is a fashion icon and received the first ever Icon Award at the 2013 AMAs! I think she’s cute and young enough to pull off anything, but please keep in mind that we all can’t be like Rihanna.
Lady Gaga is so over the theatrical, sometimes scary, red carpet looks. These days, she just wants to ‘wow’ us in glamorous Versace gowns and super long golden weaves. Yes, that was Lady Gaga in a lavender cut-out Versace gown. It’s a refreshingly normal style for the pop star and new Versace spokesmodel, but she still kept it Gaga-ish with a dramatic entrance on a human white horse.
Miley Cyrus is a super talented artist and twerking with a rhythmically challenged Robin Thicke or in a unicorn onesie does not define her career. Last night, Miley showed just how versatile she is with both her red carpet attire and performance. The most talked about star of 2013 opted for a Versus Versace white pants suit with black pumps. Of course, she added some sexiness to the suit by going topless under the tuxedo jacket. As for her on-stage appearance, check out her stellar performance of “Wrecking Ball” below…
