Over the next couple of days I am going to be putting out all my wishes for the 2017 American Music Awards red carpet. The show is this Sunday November 19, 2017 and I am really excited to see what the stars will bring to the red carpet. There was a lot of controversy around the lack of female nominees in this years crop of American Music Awards nominees. I have to say I totally agree since it seemed like the women nominated this year are the powerhouse females in music and we all know that there are great voices and music outside of Beyonce, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. Thankfully we have seen some stars announced as performers and presenters this year so the red carpet wont be a total sausage fest. Beyonce is nominated for Favorite Soul/R&B Artist this year and I wonder if she will take to the red carpet. Bey hasn’t walked the AMA’s red carpet in 10 years so my wishes for her to rock this year just might fall on deaf ears. I would imagine that Beyonce will give at least two looks if she does attend the 2017 American Music Awards. I think that will have one look for the red carpet and one look for inside during the show. For the red carpet I went to this modern ‘medieval couture’ Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture draped gown which features golden embroidery, a daring side split, and a connected wrap sleeve. This isn’t necessarily the first dress that comes to mind when I think of the American Music Award red carpet, or any music awards show red carpet for that fact, but I think that Beyonce would take this dress and infuse her sexy ‘Sasha Fierce’ glamour into it and make it a truly major moment for this red carpet. I think that if she added a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Follies’ lace embroidered pumps, a sleek large high bun, smokey eyes, a nude lip, and a pair of statement brown diamond Lorraine Schwartz drop earrings that this look would be perfection. At these big events Beyonce usually changes at least once. I think that for her wardrobe change I would go for a subtle, yet glamorous moment via this black sequin Elie Saab Resort 2018 one shoulder gown which features a cape like detail, a wrap skirt construction, and a thigh high slit. The looks is one of those looks that has the potential that I think that Beyonce would turn into a really major moment. Because this look is subtle in its style I think that the accessories are the key to really making this look. Adding a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Artydiva’ platform ankle strap sandals, a pair of chunky Lorraine Schwartz emerald drop earrings, and a statement emerald and Australian black opal Lorraine Schwartz cuff to old Hollywood waves and nude lip all would ensure that Bey is once again the epitome of a glamorous diva.Christina Aguilera will be attending the 2017 American Music Awards to perform a tribute medley in honor of Whitney Huston and the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard. I usually don’t feature Christina anymore because she just hasn’t given me anything to get excited about in a long time. When I saw that she was going to be performing this Whitney tribute I decided to add her to my wishes because I wanted to pick some gorgeous looks from Whitney’s go to designer Marc Bouwer. We don’t see a whole lot of Marc’s designs on a red carpet, but if Christina wore some of his looks on the red carpet and for her performance I think that would just add another layer of her tribute. For the red carpet I went for dramatic glamour with this silver sequined Marc Bouwer Fall 2017 RTW nude halter gown which features a dramatic train and a center split. Is this look anything new? No, but I think that it meshes Whitney and Christina’s styles perfectly. I think that if Christina paired this gown with a pair of silk pink Christian Louboutin ‘Twistissima Crisscross’ strass embellished pumps, glamorous Veronica Lake waves, a winged eyeliner, red lips, and a selection of David Morris diamonds including a pair of chandelier tassel earrings, a statement stone ring, and a diamond band that this look would be all glamour all the time. I am sure that Christiana will do a quick change for her performance and I think that this black and red beaded ombré long sleeve midi dress which features a plunging neckline would be a perfect performance look. The beading of this gown will just sparkle under the stage lights against what will no doubt be a black backdrop. If Christina kept the same beauty from the red carpet and swapped her accessories for a pair of red Christian Louboutin ‘Decoltish’ velvet pumps and David Morris diamond and ruby jewelry including a pair of chandelier earrings and a selection of three rings (one, two, three) she would have another perfect moment to honor Whitney.Ciara was on hand to announce the nominees in the major categories on Good Morning America last month. I am expecting to see her turn out as a presenter at this years award ceremony as she usually on the red carpet. I went back to the same designer that dressed Ciara for this red carpet last year when she debuted her baby bump. Stephane Rolland designs are so out there that we usually only see his avant garde take on fashion on music award show red carpets and on backs of supermodels like Nieves Alvarez. I love this very dramatic, over the top, edgy take on glamour and I think that in the past Ciara has worn his complicated designs with ease. I think that Ciara would definitely bring the wow factor (and be one that people talk about having mixed feelings about) wearing this black Stephane Rolland Fall 2017 Couture long sleeve velvet mini dress which features a dramatic attached silk cape and gold 3D petal details on the shoulders. This look is dramatic and out there and definitely a risk, but I think that Ciara could easily make work on the red carpet. The look is so dramatic so I want to keep the styling rather simple with a sleek high ponytail, smokey eye, nude lips, a pair of black sequin Christian Louboutin ‘Louise X’ over-the-knee boots, and a gold David Webb ‘Nail’ ring to really ensure that every detail of this look is perfection. Halsey is a fashion chameleon. She never steps onto a red carpet sporting the same look twice. She is constantly changing her hair and honestly if it weren’t for captions on Getty Images I might not recognize her. Two weeks ago she was sporting a chocolate brown long bob and I wonder what she will sport on Sunday night at the American Music Awards. Never knowing what her hair is going to be can make it difficult to pick a look for Halsey to rock on a red carpet. What made it even harder is the fact that the Adam Selman look that I had originally picked for her to wear for this red carpet was worn by Paloma Elsesser at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. So I went back on a hunt and ultimately I went to this sexy red Zuhair Murad Resort 2018 embellished wide leg jumpsuit which features a plunging neckline and sheer details. This look is modern yet very disco and all sex appeal and I think that Halsey would definitely make this a really cool moment on the American Music Awards red carpet. Add a pair of ruby velvet RAYE ‘Blake’ sandals and mismatched Maison Dauphin diamond earrings one being an earcuff and the other being a statement pendant drop earring to a smokey eye, nude lip, and whatever hair she shows up with all could make this a really cool, fun, and sexy moment.Rounding out today is the gorgeous Nicole Kidman who tends to stand by her hubby Keith Urban at award shows where he is nominated. I absolutely love when Nicole does step out to support Keith because she almost always delivers a gorgeous moment on the red carpet. It has been a while since Nicole has attended the American Music Awards. The last time was when she was a presenter during her time promoting her musical film NINE wearing Balenciaga in 2009. Since Nicole has attended every single event Keith has been at (except the Grammy’s since she was nominated for a BAFTA in London on the same day) I am praying that she will bring her glamour to the AMA’s red carpet. I think that something chic and fashion forward, yet simple and classic all at the same time is the perfect look for Nicole to wear on this red carpet and this black Mugler Spring 2018 RTW cocktail dress which features patent leather detail on the boned corset bodice would be just that. I think that this look is simple yet sexy and I think that Nicole would definitely make it even more of a major moment that it was coming down the runway. I think that if Nicole paired this dress with a loose fishtail braid, winged eyeliner, a red lip, black Christian Louboutin ‘Cross Fliketa’ strappy pumps, and a pair of statement diamond and emerald Cartier earrings that she would definitely take home the best plus one on this red carpet.
The 2017 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 19, 2017.
