I am thrilled that we are going to have a major red carpet at the American Music Awards this weekend. I am really interested in seeing what the red carpet will look like. With COVID-19 we know that it will not be business as usual, but with the list of performers alone I am thrilled to see what this red carpet will end up looking like. I really want to see some major fashion moments from everyone we see step out.We’ve seen Doja Cat give us major fashion moments on every red carpet this fall. I went through all kinds of looks trying to pick the perfect look for Doja to rock on the AMA’s red carpet. She is nominated for 4 awards and will be performing so I knew I wanted to bring something major. Enter this black and bronze silk Maison Margiela Spring 2020 Couture slip style velvet devore spotted gown which features thin straps, a plunging open back, and a short train. I have been in love with this gown since it was first presented back in January and while I’ve mentally had it on reserves for Zoe Kravitz I feel like Doja would be able to serve it up as the moment I know it can be. I would go for a really 90’s inspired moment styling this look with sleek long center parted black hair, defined eyes, dark bronze-y red lips, a pair of strappy black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Vanilla Punk’ knee high stiletto sandals, and a bit of sparkle via Kallati ‘Eternal’ white and yellow diamond drop earrings. I would definitely LOVE this moment. I’m going to try my best to not dive into a rant about Miranda Lambert like I did yesterday with Maren Morris, but my feelings are pretty much the same. I can’t really stand Miranda’s style. She has never wowed me and I don’t expect her to do it now. I would be shocked if she showed up on this red carpet wearing this burgundy to red ombre sequin Jenny Packham strapless gown which features a structured bodice, sweetheart neckline, and a column silhouette. I went off the rack to make it a little more of a possibility, but I still don’t expect it to happen. A loose romantic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a burgundy mirrored Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ envelope clutch, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Liu 100’ mesh-paneled sandals, and a selection of major IVY New York jewels including statement rubellite and diamond pendant drop earrings and a red spinel and diamond cocktail ring would definitely put this look together perfectly giving us the major fashion moment I know we shouldn’t expect to see from Miranda. I’ve never featured Paris Hilton in a wish list before, but there’s a first for everything right? She will be one of the presenters at the AMA’s on Sunday and I am interested in seeing what she will wear. I want Paris to give us sexy glamour wearing this black sequin asymmetrical beaded stripe Jean Fares sleeveless column gown which features a plunging neckline and a thigh high split. It is a little more covered than we are used to seeing from Paris, but I feel like when Paris goes for glamour that is when she gives her best looks. This gown is very classic in it’s style and isn’t a boundary pushing style in the least, but I would love to see Paris bring the look to life. A sleek retro inspired updo, thick defined smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black and silver Christian Louboutin ‘Double L Pump’ pointed toe crystal embellished strappy mesh pumps, and a statement white diamond Harry Kotlar cushion cut pendant drop necklace would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Paris. Roddy Rich has 8 nominations at this weekends AMA’s and I have to say that since he isn’t a performer this year that he won’t be taking any awards home. I haven’t followed him to be honest, but I feel like he would give good fashion on the red carpet. For a cool look I went to a Louis Vuitton Spring 2021 Menswear ensemble which features an abstract black and white check print hooded trucker jacket pair with black trousers and black sneakers with a green sole for Roddy. I can definitely see it being a great music award show red carpet. I would ditch the runways hat and bag maybe adding some thick framed black sunglasses to make this a really cool menswear moment. Hot on the heels of the announcement that he will be headlining that Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show we are going to see The Weeknd performing at this years AMA’s. He tied Roddy for most nominations with 8 and I am expecting him to bring several home. When it comes to style Abel doesn’t push many boundaries. I loved the red suit he wore for the VMA’s earlier this year. For the AMA’s which I imagine he will sneak in the side door for I would love to see The Weeknd wearing this deep purple Rynshu Spring 2021 RTW slim fit tuxedo with contrasting black satin peak lapels and an iridescent silver strap on the two button blazer. I think this is a super classic look with a bit of a twist which is exactly what I want to see from The Weeknd. I would finish the look with a pair of black calfskin leather Christian Louboutin ‘Samson Flat’ ankle boots and black and grey Gucci square aviator sunglasses.
The 2020 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 22, 2020. Check out all of my wishes for this red carpet here.
