Selena in Red: Selena Gomez at the 2016 American Music Awards
The 44th Annual American Music Awards took place Sunday night in Los Angeles and naturally, there were lots of Red Carpet Hits...as well as some CRAY-CRAY. And yes, Selena Gomez made her first pubic appearance after taking a break to focus on her mental health. Anyhow..let's discuss the Red Carpet Good and "Oh No She Didn't!
Let's begin with Selena:
Selena Gomez in Custom Prada: The lovely--and "reappeared-after-an-absence" Selena Gomez, wore this strawberry red ballgown from the Italian fashion house, Prada. I found this design quite interesting for several reasons. First, Prada would never design a dress like this but that's neither here nor there, since this was "Custom" Prada. Second, when I saw "Prada", I thought "heck, you can put anyone's label in this since it was just such a basic dress". It was a beautiful dress and clearly the focus was to make Selena the star....BUT, I'm just saying that when I see "Prada", I want to see this:
The real non-Custom Prada: Prada Spring 2017 (L) and Fall 2016 (R)
she was not wearing underwear. Ayyy Mija!
Miss USA pageant from 2013. I know that Couturiers such as Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad were doing this seasons ago and now, all of a sudden it's caught the red carpet trend but PLEASE NO!!! I beg you! I think Ms. Menzel looked silly. She can do better.
Latin Grammys, Premios Tu Mundo and Premios Juventud (to name a few) always have a hunch of beauty pageant contestants/winners walking the red carpet. But, here we are at the 2016 American Music Awards and "Miss America 2017" Janine Shields from Arkansas, is walking the red carpet! (so shut my mouth!). OK, for a pageant gal, she looked modern, nice and non "Pageant Betty". There were no crystals and (thank goodness!), no tacky Stripper Platform Heels! So...I give Janine (and her stylist) points!
Z LaLa. She's a singer best known for singing in NINETEEN different languages, according to Wikipedia. She's also known for her eccentric style and Lady Gaga-like ensembles. What she wore at the 2016 American Music Awards this past weekend was no exception. Z LaLa wore a black latex cone bra, quarterback shouldered dress with black see-though illusion netting top. Two words: YASSS KWEEN.
