After giving you a new format Tuesday for my wishes for the 2019 American Music Awards hostess Ciara I am back to a much more traditional set up. Regular readers will definitely know the format for today’s set of wishes for the red carpet at the 2019 American Music Awards which will take place this Sunday night. This is one of the last major red carpets of the year and I am hoping that someone will deliver a major moment. I have already narrowed down my Best Dressed of the Year List to just 55 possible contenders, but while there may only be 40 days left in 2019 there is still a chance that my list can be disrupted. I believe that some of the ladies that are confirmed to attend the 2019 American Music Awards could very easily put together a look worthy of the Best Dressed of the Year list. Ariana Grande is nominated for six awards this weekend and I am hoping that we finally see her take to a red carpet for the first time in almost a year this weekend. I honestly knew exactly what look I wanted to see the 26 year old sugary sweet songstress to bring to life on this red carpet on Sunday night. I have thought that this white, powder pink, and black Celia Kritharioti Fall 2019 Couture feathered high low gown would be such a perfect moment for Ari since it first came down the Parisian runway back in July. We are definitely used to seeing Ariana give us uber flirty feminine moments on the red carpet so I really think that this moment could work. I think this look is the perfect balance of chic femininity and DRAMA for Ariana to deliver on the American Music Awards red carpet. I would love to see Ariana change up her signature high ponytail hairstyle for a big bun updo, but I don’t think that will happen and I do think that her signature style would still work very well with this gown. The perfect finishing touches for this look include thick winged eyes, mauve pink matte lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Katie’ black patent and suede crystal embellished hotfix bow platform sandals, and a selection of Messika jewels from the ‘The Snow Queen’ inspired collection including a pair of ‘Shards of Mirror’ white diamond floating cluster earrings and a matching ‘Shards of Mirror’ white diamond cuff bracelet.Cardi B could finish out a major 2019 by taking home two American Music Awards home this weekend. It was really at last years AMA’s that I fell in love with Cardi’s sense of style. She really blossomed on this red carpet last year wearing a major floral Dolce & Gabbana (ew in retrospect) gown and matching headwrap. This year I want Cardi to deliver femme fatale Hollywood glamour wearing this silver fully beaded Yousef Al-Jasmi Fall 2019 Couture wrap style gown which features a plunging wide v-neckline, dramatic cape sleeves, and a high center split. This is definitely not something we have really seen from Cardi yet, but I just imagine her delivering this rich high glam bitch persona wearing this gown on the American Music Awards red carpet with a sleek bouffant style updo, thick winged lined smokey eyes, bold matte red lips, a pair of silver glitter Casadei ‘Blade’ pointed toe pumps, and dazzling Butani diamonds including a pair of ‘Mayfair’ white diamond cluster earrings and a statement white diamond draped collar necklace. Cardi already is on my short list for a spot on my Best Dressed of the Year List, but if done the way I am imagining in my head I believe that this could be another major contender as well. Dua Lipa is also on my Best Dressed of the Year short list currently thanks to the amazing red Valentino Couture gown that she wore for the amfAR Gala in Cannes earlier this year. Aside from that moment I was lacking major drama moment from Dua this year. That comes on the heels of her major drama moments in Giambattista Valli Couture last year. I decided that I was going to turn back to the French Haute Couturier for the look I most wanted to see Dua, who is performing at the AMA’s this weekend, bring to life on the red carpet. This bold hot pink strapless Giambattista Valli Fall 2019 Couture feathered mini dress which features a sash draped waist that trails into a dramatic chiffon train was one of my favorite looks that was presented during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall 2019 back in July and I have been waiting for someone to wear it. I feel like this is a dress perfect for a party, premiere, or well a music awards since it doesn’t really scream “Hollywood” to me as much as it screams “Party.” I believe that Dua would bring this dress to life. She has that modelesque stature that I believe is needed to really bring this look to life. Now that being said I HATE her two tones hair. I would like her to choose if she wants dark hair or blonde hair and stick with it. That being said I do not believe that Dua is going to change up the hair style, so I want to see it as a center parted sleek updo to let the dress be the focus of this look. A pair of matching hot pink Christian Louboutin ‘Araborda’ crystal embellished peep toe slingback sandals, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of dazzling white diamond Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2019 drop earrings would ensure that Dua is ready to make this look come to life on the AMA’s red carpet. Coming off the news yesterday that she is the one with the most 2020 Grammy Award nominations I am expecting Lizzo to definitely be 100% that bitch and deliver a superbly major moment on the red carpet at the American Music Awards as she really begins her campaign to take home several Grammy’s in January. She has owned red carpets this year wearing Moschino, Marc Jacobs, and Christopher John Rogers for the biggest red carpets. As I was on the hunt for the perfect look for Lizzo to bring to life on the American Music Awards red carpet I found this seafoam green and black Christian Siriano Spring 2020 RTW cold-shoulder tulle bustier gown which features boned bodice, defined hips, column skirt, and overall sheer construction on the runway of the designers re-show during Paris Fashion Week. When originally presented at New York Fashion Week this gown was presented in all black, but I think that the seafoam tulle on the shoulders/neckline and skirt make this look like less of a costume, and more of a high fashion moment. I see this gown as Siriano does Thierry Mugler. Now I know that Lizzo has the personality and the confidence to really bring this look to life especially if styled with a 60’s inspired updo, smokey eyes, burgundy Fenty Beauty ‘Griselda’ mattemoiselle plush matte lipstick, black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ point toe velvet and mesh pointed toe pumps, and Norman Silverman diamonds including a pair of ‘Fleur’ floral drop earrings and a major oval cut and half mood diamond cocktail ring. Selena Gomez will be performing her songs “Lose You To Love Me” and “Look At Her Now” at the 2019 American Music Awards this weekend. Selena has had several chic moments on the AMA’s red carpet over the years and I am excited to see what this years look will be. It seems like Selena is now free of the reigns of her Coach ties now that Jennifer Lopez has been announced as the brands latest face. So I am really excited to see what she will bring to this red carpet. I loved the new sexier woman that Alessandro Michele sent down the Gucci Spring 2020 RTW runway. To be honest I can’t tell you why none of the looks from this collection have yet to make it to a red carpet. Well I would love to see Selena change that by stepping onto the AMA’s red carpet on Sunday wearing this black halter neck gown from that collection which features jade green and gold Chinese brocade inspired brocade, a daring chest cutout, a column skirt, and a thigh high split. The cut of this gown took me back to the days of Tom Ford and the fabric screams Alessandro’s vibe and the two together just makes for a perfect meshing of aesthetics. I think that Selena would deliver this moment on the red carpet with effortless ease. A pair of simple black suede Gucci ankle strap sandals, a sleek center parted low bun, defined eyes, light pink lips, and Hanut Singh ‘Egyptian Revivalist’ white topaz, emerald, enamel, and diamond drop earrings would ensure that this is one of Selena’s best red carpet moments in a long time.
The 2019 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 24, 2019.
