Last night, the American Music Awards satiated our award-show-season appetite for award shows. Even if the awards themselves are basically meaningless, it had all the things the best award shows do: sequins, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, an onstage strip-down courtesy of Jennifer Lopez, and lots more Jennifer Lopez. See the divas, Selena Gomez, Nicki Minaj, and more outfits from last night in our slideshow.
She appears to have cut off a few locks of hair to make a bracelet — that's a neat touch.
She's also molting! But more fabulously!
You might be thinking, "A purple shirt? I know it's Lance Bass, but a purple shirt?" Given the predominance of sheer, feathered, and gold fabrics on the red carpet, he probably just wanted to stand out without wearing anything fringed.
If you can say anything about Taylor Swift, it's that her outfits are as reliable as a jar of Jif peanut butter. And almost the same color.
Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber
Now, this is a very grown-up dress for a 19-year-old (although with the rise of the 14- to 15-year-old Chloë Moretz-es and Hailee Steinfelds of the world, 19 is starting to sound near-ancient). If you look at the way the front is cut, it basically looks like a one-piece bathing suit with a skirt. Bieber, who we are so accustomed to seeing in jazzy asymmetrical jackets and colorful pants onstage, just kind of looks like her servant in that tux.
One of the many "so just how well-lined is that?" of the night.
Well, now she doesn't need to get knighted.
And, it must be said: Britney Spears-Lo. Yet she was running out of ways to do a sparkly skintight jumpsuit, so why not reprise what was already a huge hit for someone else?
With the world having seen so many divas rip their clothes off to reveal body stockings or less, Jennifer differentiated her strip-down by adding the rare middle layer, which was, naturally, Selena Gomez's red carpet dress shredded.
It's nice to see her in a real ballgown that doesn't make a point of turning dressing up into a super-serious "MUST BE PERFECT" kind of activity. She's so pretty, she doesn't need to walk around in a metal shell.
Everyone will be talking today about how much weight Christina looks like she's gained since, say, her Burlesque press tour. But she also probably lost a bit of fabric from her dress.
Normally I don't suggest that women wear less, tighter clothing, and I appreciate Heidi's modesty especially for a music event. But this dress would have looked better on her if it were a couple inches shorter and fitted instead of A-line. Then again, how do we know how much lining she really has under there?
When she finished performing, she returned to the set of the Jetsons from whence she came.
When he finished performing, he retired to Selena Gomez's dressing room so he could finish painting it.
