Red Carpet Rundown: The 2013 American Music Awards Best-Dressed List


We’ve been planning all week for the 2013 American Music Awards last night. We love dress as performance, and a big red carpet always gives us a good show. Well, usually. This time was kind of a bust. None of the greats were really great, none of the bads were even particularly awful, and most people looked really tired. But still some people showed up ready to play, especially Lil Mama, Ciara, Katy Perry and … Miley Cyrus. (Yes, for real.)

Check out the best dressed celebrities on the 2013 American Music Awards red carpet.

2013 American Music Awards - Arrivals Ke$ha

Ke$ha‘s Michael Costello gown is strangely demure and elegant for her, but the exposed leg and sculptural hip ruffles make it weird enough to be interesting.

2013 American Music Awards Zendeya

Zendeya‘s crazy extensions are a perfect accessory for this white-on-white Donna Karan look. I’m always impressed when someone, even a celebrity, manages to keep this much white draping looking crisp and clean. We hates the shoes, though. Hates them so much.

2013 American Music Awards Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman‘s dress looks like it is falling down and only 8 meters of Topstick is keeping that left nipple in. But it’s a bright color, and at the 2013 AMAs that’s enough to get on this list.

2013 American Music Awards Kelly Osbourne

We went back and forth on Kelly Osbourne‘s retro ballerina costume, but this close-up of the fabric sold us:

Up close, it’s messy and sparkly at the same time. That’s fantastic.

Taylor Swift did that “short, gold, shiny” thing she always does in Julian Macdonald. She looks good, if predictable, but from the shoulders up she appears to be trying out a 1970s bad girl look that’s a refreshing change from her usual romantically pretty look.

      I hate Kelly Osbourne’s shoes.

      • Elizabeth Licata

        I do too! They’re so bad. They make her look like she has Gumby feet.

    • LynnKell

      Oh man! I really don’t want to praise Miley but dammit, she nailed it!! Not a single accessory was out of place.

        I know…I think her look was the best. What’s happening?!?
