This year’s American Music Awards didn’t offer much in the way of great and modest fashion. There were, however, five dresses that are worth mentioning!
Taylor Swift wore her usual floor-length gold sequined gown, and although it’s not a unique ensemble for her, I think it looks great. The long, shimmery look fits the body in an elegant way without being too tight. I also like how she goes strapless without showing any cleavage. I was a little concerned with how high her slit went, but for the most part, I love this dress on her.
I love sequins, so Katie Leclerc’s dress was a hit for me. The color might not suit her well since it seems to blend in with her skin, but I like the style and length, and thought that the fit was just right.
Jenny McCarthy’s violet dress with a bubble skirt was fun, yet elegant. I wasn’t as enthusiastic about her shoes, though. I think they look too clunky matched with the delicate style of the dress.
Jennifer Morrison wore a white flowing, angelic dress. I liked that it had some shape without being too tight, but I wish the neckline didn’t plunge so much. I also liked the modest opening at the leg. Her hair looked lovely, too.
Sarah Hyland’s metallic dress was cute, although I think it needed a couple more inches added to its length. I liked the shape and fabric.
Those were my five favorites, but before I end this post, I want to mention Selena Gomez‘s dress.
This gown was the winner for the fashion gurus. Had it not been for three features, it would have been my favorite, too. What were the problems? The neckline was too deep, the back plunged way too far, and the slit was too high. The gown showed too much skin and left little to the imagination. Had these features been less revealing, I think that this dress would have been a hit.
Take a look.
Which dress do you like the best and why? And what do you think of Selena Gomez’s gown?
