Happy Monday Let's Talk Stylers!

I'm in a particularly awesome mood this morning. Short work weeks will do that to me.

If you didn't catch the American Music Awards this past weekend, here is my Red Carpet recap of my flat out favorite looks that all of the starlets and songstresses rocked, as well as the gowns that fell flat, musical pun intended.

Selena Gomez is on a red carpet roll. Her bf's alleged baby mama dropped her allegations that Justin Beiber fathered her baby and Selena celebrated by standing by her man on the red carpet in a slinky, silky, and in a word Selenasational Giorgio Armani gown featuring a halter neckline, low open back, ruched bodice and perfect length train.

They wear fug gowns
I wear scene stealers
They're made fun of
And I'm a close the dealer

Taylor Swift not only swept up the Best Artist Award, (and every other award she was up for, Kanye West interruption free) but she also tripped the night fantastic in a sparkly, sequined, strapless and simply stunning Reem Acra gown paired with Jimmy Choo heels, intended for musical royalty. Oh can't you seeee, that dress belongs with meeeeee. Seriously Taylor. It belongs with me.

With the good comes the bad. I know you're all expecting me to place Nicki Minaj at the top of my Worst Dressed list, but here's the deal. Now homegirl is just expected to make weird fashion statements, and I don't like to do anything that's expected. Here are my least favorite AMA looks worn by a duo of older stars who should just plain know better.

Jenny McCarthy's purple Victoria Beckham dress would probably have looked good on the string bean frame of Victoria Beckham and/or a Toddlers & Tiaras contestant, but didn't come off as posh on Jenny. Too short, wrong shoes, bad call. p.s. In honor of Thanksgiving, someone please let Jenny know her turkeys are done.

I am usually in awe of Julie Bowen's red carpet choices, but it looks like the Modern Family star stole a Gap sweaterdress from my closet and had her kids sprinkle glitter all over it. Just because you aren't nominated for an award doesn't mean you can slack on style. Next time, run your outfit by Sofia Vergara first.
