Sure, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber won a lot of awards at last night’s Billboard Music Awards. And yes, Miguel almost killed a woman by landing on her head. None of that matters though as much as how many celebrities showed up making fashion faux pas. Let’s just say that there was a lot of black, white and all wrong at last night’s Billboard Music Awards.
We’ve been all over the 40th American Music Awards, held last night at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. Get to VH1 Tuner for all the coverage. Stick around here for a bit, if you’d like to know what went down there fashion wise, though. In a nutshell: great red carpet. No real missteps, except three people, as you’ll see in our next post, but with that many people at the event, that’s hardly a number to be worried about. We’re super excited about this best-dressed list, as these 10 ladies really brought their A-game. Taylor Swift leads the pack, ditching red lipstick again as she did at the MTV EMA’s last week. She wore a sexy Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2012 mini dress, with an open back and and gorgeous gold beading sewn in. Strappy Jimmy Choos and smoky eyes completed the sophisticated look. Nicki Minaj, floored us too, in a neon yellow Monique Lhuiller gown, very similar, but a lot cooler, than the one Julie Bowen wore to the Emmys this year. Wearing the same color, only hers was sunflower, was Kerry Washington in a midi length Stella McCartney Resort 2013 dress with fringe detailing, styled with coral pumps that matched her coral lips. Carrie Underwood is next, looking fabulous in her purple beaded Abed Mahfouz Fall 2012 gown with rose-gold Jacob & Co. chandelier earrings. Kelly Rowland and Stacy Keibler went the same route with applique mini dresses, only Rowland’s was a Naeem Khan Fall 2012 dress while Keibler’s was a College Dinnigan number with a lot more embellishment, worn with Jimmy Choos, a Judith Leiber clutch and Neil Lane jewelry.
Besties Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison both made it on the list too, which is unusual, because they never synchronize like that. Which is a polite way of saying one of them always makes a bad sartorial decision when they both show up at an event together. We’ve fallen head over heels for the vintage silhouette and styling of Goodwin’s icy pink Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 cocktail dress with her silver Jimmy Choos and her mirrored Judith Leiber clutch. Jennifer picked a black draped gown by Abed Mahfouz, just like Carrie Underwood. Rounding up the carrel are Pink and Heidi Klum, who both picked metallics, but to very different ends. Pink wore a stunning bronze Catherine Deane gown with a flowing skirt, and a laser cut leather bodice that looked like amour! Heidi wore a gold guipure lace mini dress from the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2012 Couture collection with matching Christian Louboutin pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. It was a lot of skin, but it’s Heidi’s skin so she can pull it off like a pro. Do you agree with our picks?

The LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala Honoring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick presented by Gucci turned out to be a pretty well-attended, fashion-savvy event this weekend. Teeming with A-listers, since Gucci was headlined, most of the ladies wore the brand. We do have Robert Pattinson in our gallery as well, because he’s Robert Pattinson, and he looked devastating in his sharp Gucci suit. Also wearing Gucci was Amy Adams, who glided in a yellow Spring 2013 strapless column with a train and Amber Valletta who was dramatic in a deep green, ruffled, halter-necked gown. Florence Welch (who also performed at the event) looked stunning wearing deep purple Gucci with a gold Grecian headband that worked like a dream with her red hair and pale skin. Bella Heathcote wore a white frock with paillettes and an embellished neckline, which was similar to Amber Heard‘s only the latter’s was in black and gold. There was even more Gucci thanks to Minka Kelly‘s stark black number, Evan Rachel Wood‘s sexy gold dress and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s leggy, backless emerald gown. Ginnifer Goodwin wore a risque dress from the Fall 2012 collection that featured a bold feathered green skirt and black, sheer panelled blouson. Cameron Diaz‘s body was to die for in a bright yellow mini-dress, while her gal pal Jennifer Aniston brought the va-va-voom in a plunging gown by Tom Ford. Breaking out of the brand was another Jennifer, Jennifer Morrison, who chose a slashed black Reem Acra jumpsuit. Some of the looks worked — Evan, Amy, Amber and then some — and some, we’re not quite sure of, like Cameron and Jennifer M’s. But at least this was a red carpet that had interesting, envelope pushing looks. Check out our gallery to see all the rest.

Those pouty lips, that porcelain skin, that heart-shaped face…yeah, Once Upon A Time‘s Jennifer Morrison and Sebastian Stan are dating now, alright. They also look like they came out of the same womb! Did we just get too real on you? Of course, Jennifer and Sebastian wouldn’t be the first celebrity couple who, well, coupled with someone who looked shocking like him/her. Take a look at our other celebrity look-alike pairs if you don’t believe us. Of course, they’re all hot, so think of it this way: it’s not creepy, it just means they have good taste. And maybe it’s a little creepy…
The Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Issue party went down last night in L.A. at the Greystone Manor, and guests took the “hot” part of the invitation quite seriously. Kim Kardashian led the way working it in a sparkling silver strapless dress with neon pink pumps. Carmen Electra looked quite spectacular wearing a beige dress with gold vertical detailing, gathered at the waist. Olivia Munn picked a tight LBD with black booties, with an multi-strand orange necklace for color relief. Yep. Legs galore, right? Other stems that looked equally great were Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett‘s, showcased in a tight blue plunging mini. Jennifer Morrison went that route too, in a flounced frock, and she also debuted a new auburn ‘do. The likes of Shannen Doherty, Monica and Busy Philipps were also spotted wearing little dresses. Aubrey O’Day wore a maxi, but brought out the cleavage. Balancing out all the yin, was some pretty hot yang — Kellan Lutz. ‘Nuff said. Check out the gallery to see for yourself.

Why couldn’t these two ladies have channeled some of this into their sartorially challenged People’s Choice Awards oufits? Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison who star together on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, arrived at Vancouver airport and were taken straight to the set of the show. But more importantly, they arrived looking like they walked out of an advertisement. This is so ’70s glam it’s unbelievable. If you can forget the Canadian flag on the display board in the photograph on the right, this could totally be Paris where they’ve arrivées to be fabulous and jet-set. Don’t miss the matching Louis Vuitton travel totes and wayfarer glasses. Ginnifer may get extra points for her fedora, though. It’s so “I’m an actress” that we love it.

We’re as surprised at this list of the worst-dressed ladies at the People’s Choice Awards as you are. A lot of our favorites are in there, so don’t bother throwing stones at us, because we’ve beaten ourselves up plenty already. But in the interest of fairness, we’ll just chalk their fashion missteps down as a bad day at the stylists. Each of these women are lovely, but bad decisions can happen to anyone right?
Leading the way, sadly, is Vanessa Hudgens. She does her hippie-meets-goth thing usually, but this Jenny Packham gown combined the worst of both styles. We don’t like the way it’s constructed and the two layers — the black gown and the gold spiderweb — are looking slopply. The Casadei heel look too clunky, as well. Still, top points for her luminous smile! Next up is Jennifer Morrison, whose severe, huge bun and slash of too-dark lipstick veers into matron territory. That Oscar de la Renta dress is vaguely reminiscent of a lampshade. We feel it would’ve looked a lot better if she had done something different with her hair and make-up — perhaps gone softer. Her buddy Ginnifer Goodwin is also on the list. We love the color of her Roksanda Ilinicic dress, but those sleeves looks like they’re going to eat her alive, just like those Jimmy Choo’s look like they’re eating her feet. It’s too much dress for such a tiny body. Another disappointment was Lucy Hale, who is so pretty, but her black Cengiz Abazoğlu number has a split personality. It feels like she couldn’t decide whether she wanted to wear a maxi or a mini, so ended up going with both. Read more…
Everyone knows that the first few days after the holidays can be a real bummer. But these sexy celebs chased away the post-holiday blues by heading to Miami Beach. And we have to say, seeing them strut their stuff in the surf cheered us up, too! Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Mischa Barton and even ex-Nsync’er Lance Bass were spotted soaking up the sun, while Jennifer Lopez cruised the harbor in a yacht with her boyfriend Casper Smart. And that’s just the start! Check out the gallery below to see what other stars helped make Miami Beach even hotter!

Of all the fashions we spotted on the red carpet and onstage at last night’s AMAs, there were some that were clearly awesome and others that hurt our delicate eyes. But then there was the middle ground. The outfits that confuse our sense of right and wrong. Daring, but maybe too much. Awful, but maybe in an interesting way. Gorgeous if only they fit better.
Maybe you can help us out: Were Justin Bieber‘s tiger-striped pants hideous or hilarious? Should we admire J.Lo‘s nude bodysuit on the grounds that it showed off her assets? If Jennifer Hudson looked so uncomfortable in her super-short gold dress, does that detract from its hotness? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @theFABlife.
