|Since I don't have a favorite look from the red carpet,|
I'll just go with my favorite photo of the night.
Travis Barker and his grown-ass kids.
OMWord. I used to watch his MTV show, Meet the Barkers, faithfully.
We're all getting old!
So yeah, American Music Awards 2016 was televised last night and it was boring as fuck. Not good. Not bad. Not entertaining. Just straight up boring. And it was only yesterday when I realized it's a 3 hour show. By hour 2, I was thisclose to tapping out.
But still gonna bring you the recap because it's just something I like to do. Clearly.
The only highlight for me was seeing Bruno Mars perform. But even that left me a bit underwhelmed because I was really banking on him performing a new song from his fantastic album, 24K Magic. Look, 24K Magic, the song, is really good. Especially the 2nd verse. But he got some real bangers on that album. Anywho, just nitpicking here. Hmmm...who else? I liked Lady Gaga's performance. Prince's sister accepted his posthumous award for Best Soundtrack and her speech was an emotional one. Oh, and it was cute when Drake accepted his award for Best Album - R&B/Hip-Hop from Nina Dobrev. Why? Degrassi alums. Jimmy and Mia.
Hey, I tried.
Onto the fashion!
|Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell|
Even though both designs are nothing alike, seeing this reminded me of her Oscars '16 look.
Maybe it's the pants.
Well, at least it all looks good.
|Hailee Steinfield in Elie Saab|
Usally, when she goes to popstar mode, it reeks of desperation.
I didn't get that feeling from this look.
Maybe it's the green color. And the hair. And the belt.
Definitely the belt.
|Ciara in Stephane Rolland|
From the waist up, nice. Slightly, dull. But nice.
From the waist down, whaaa?
|Gigi Hadid in Roberto Cavailli|
Besides her Melania Trump impersonation, she was a non-factor.
All through the night, she kept wearing busted outfits with questionable hairstyles.
I guess this red carpet look was the inspiration.
|Heidi Klum in Wolk Morais|
Never change, Ms. Heidi Klum.
Bless her heart.
|Keke Palmer in Natalia Fedner|
Whoo. This girl
She's wearing a dress that was hastily DIY'd into a two piece about 30 mins before the event.
Remarkably, the bling out choker is a bridge too far.
And, finally, the one...the annoying...Ms. Teigen.
Looking like a damn fool in this fabric.
Apparently, she was having all kinds of wardrobe malfunctions on the red carpet.
I mean, duh.
Did you watch the AMAs? Any highlights for you? Let me know.
