The 2008 American Music Awards premiered on Sunday night and was jammed packed with performances and girl power! Big winners were Alicia Keys and Rihanna, and both Mariah Carey and Anne Lennox won awards honoring their lifetime achievement in music. The AMA’s unlike the Grammy’s, are a time when musicians and celebs can lay down the truly formal attire and show their trendy, yet chic style. The theme for the ladies was definitely silver with lots of studs and lace. The fellas were dapper in casualwear mixed with a shirt and tie. Normally, the guys don’t have much to mess up on since you simply need to throw on some nice pants, shirt, jacket and not be wrinkled, but my worst dressed were all men! Let’s take a look:
Chris Brown – The jacket and the shoes make the outfit, but I like that he decided to keep it simple and casual, but still look expensive and neat. This is definitely a look that any guy could get for cheap and still look as if he went shopping on the RNC dime.
Jamie Foxx – Those boots. Nuff said.
Alicia Keys – The dress is great, and I still have plans to marry her one day, but the dress looks like it has stains on the bottom, and I wasn’t feeling that big diamond on her forehead. Is she still with Crucial??? Hmmm.
