2010 American Music Awards: The Three Most Talked About Looks

The 2010 American Music Awards were held last night in Los Angeles, and while we expected to see some rather out-there performance outfits (which we did!), we were pleasantly surprised to see stars taking some serious fashion risks pre-show, too. These are the red carpet looks that REALLY caught our eyes.

NICKI MINAJ’S SKELETON DRESS

Even though Nicki Minaj’s Manish Arora dress conservatively covered her knees, it was still the most “revealing” outfit of the night. With what looked like a golden skeleton embellishment on the outside (how much more revealing can you get!), it was amazing that our fave Barbie could even sit down. She paired the work of art with pink Christian Louboutin sandals and green-tipped hair.

KE$HA’S GARBAGE GOWN

For her AMAs red carpet ensemble, Ke$ha seemed to be inspired by her 2010 VMAs dress. Remember the fitted minidress made out of garbage bags that she wore then? Yeah, well this time she wore a floor-length shredded (garbage bag?) gown with a deep V-neck and a high-slit. Her makeup — studded eyebrows and mercury-colored lipstick — was just as eye-catching.

WILLOW SMITH’S LAYERED LOOK

Willow Smith (aka the cool girl we wish we were when we were 10-years-old), presented at the AMAs wearing a slate gray romper with a funky yellow buckled, puff-sleeved jacket, leather gloves, and the slouchiest booties we’ve ever seen. This girl is literally oozing with style.
