American Music Awards: Katy Perry In Oscar de la Renta


Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the 2013 American Music Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A black strapless polka dot Oscar de la Renta sheer tulle gown, featuring embroidered flowers from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with Olympia Le-Tan ‘Webster’s New World Dictionary’ book clutch and a statement pink cocktail ring

Verdict: I love how Katy Perry can mix elegance with her quirky personality. This gown is gorgeous, I love the dots and floral appliqués, as well as the sheer tulle overlay to the skirt. But for me it is the styling that I love the most – from the Old Hollywood waves to her hair to the bold matte-red lippy, and most of all that spectacular Olympia Le-Tan box clutch.

I am a little bag/clutch obsessed and my wishlist is filled with these statement Olympia Le-Tan box clutches, they are whimsical, quirky, and gorgeously constructed – but at £1000 they are a little out of my price range, but they are pretty to look at and it is always nice to see them on the red carpet.

You can actually pick up Katy Perry’s ‘Webster’s New World Dictionary’ box clutch for £1749.51 via Farfetch – and I couldn’t resist picking out a few of my other favourites:

AMAs 2011: Jennifer Lopez Brings The Drama

Who: Jennifer Lopez

Where: At the 2011 American Music Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A sheer and black embroidered Zuhair Murad Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, with one-sleeve, high-neck and her signature thigh-high split detailing

Verdict: What I love about Jennifer Lopez is that she never disappoints on bringing the drama to the red carpet, I might not always love what she is wearing, but what I do adore is that she fully commits to her look and this gorgeous Zuhair Murad is no exception. I love the styling of this look from the high bun to the nude lips, but come on no one could wear this dress like her, she looks so fierce.

As well as picking up Best Latin Music Artist, J-Lo also performed a medley of “Until It Beats No More” “Papi” and “On The Floor”, wearing this stunning Giambattista Valli couture gown and cape. I have been loving this autumn/winter 2011 couture collection and this strapless ombre leopard print is divine and works perfectly for J-Lo on stage.

Her looks didn’t stop there as to finish off her fashion spectacular at the AMAs J-Lo went a bit Britney Spears circa 2004. As part of her performance J-Lo whipped off her couture gown to reveal this bedazzled bodysuit. I couldn’t help think of Britney in her Toxic video. What do you think? Jennifer Lopez or Britney Spears??

American Music Awards: Katy Perry Works Three Looks

Who: Purr singer Katy Perry

Where: Arriving at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A pale pink strapless Badgley Mischka dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection teamed with Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ peep toe heels

Verdict: I love the fact that Katy always surprises me. This is a gorgeous, romantic dress and she really does shine in it. Another thing I love is that she has teamed it with shoes that I want to think were inspired by X Factors worst contestant!!

Where: Performing her hit single Fireworks

Wearing: A custom Marco Marco jumpsuit

Verdict: Katy has been working the jumpsuit in her promotion of this single, and I absolutely love this deep red number, with its plunging neckline and gorgeous embellishments, its perfect on her.

Where: With her husband Russell Brand at the Rolling Stone Magazine American Music Awards VIP after party in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black Emilio Pucci halter dress

Verdict: I like this dress with its beaded neckline and waistband. But I do think that my favourite look is the Badgley Mischka gown as it is so ladylike.

American Music Awards: Kelly Osbourne Does Her Best Barbie

Who: Kelly Osbourne

Where: At the American Music Awards

Wearing: A strapless black lace Christian Dior dress from the Resort 2011 collection teamed with Stephen Webster jewels

Verdict: Kelly O just keeps getting better and better, I think she gorgeous in this lace dress and vamped up hair. At first glance she totally looks like one of the Barbie Basics in her strapless black dress – I love it!!
