Stars' Red-Carpet Style at the American Music Awards
Rihanna. Katy. Taylor. Music’s biggest names hit the red carpet and took to the stage for the American Music Awards in a flashy show hosted by Heidi Klum.
Taylor Swift showed that to be the center of attention, sometimes all you need to do is change your hairstyle. The winner for favorite female country artist made waves on the red carpet by trading her signature curls for a straight, sleek style with blunt bangs—the mirrored Collette Dinnigan dress didn’t hurt either.
Prior to opening the show with a commanding performance of her three latest hits, Rihanna rocked the red carpet in an Elie Saab Haute Couture lace gown. The "Only Girl (in the World)" singer took home the award for favorite female soul/RampB Artist.
"Firework" singer Katy Perry wore a look straight off of Badgley Mischka's Spring 2011 runway and accessorized it with a Brumani ring and bracelet (worth a combined $16,000) and Vram for Gray drop earrings.
Justin Bieber was the big winner of the night, with four awards in total, including favorite artist of the year. He added a pocket square to his leather blazer for a pop of color.
