2009 American Music Awards (Updated)
Model: Sasha Pivovarova
An illustration of what well-placed curves can do for a dress. She looks way better than the model.
Model: Kim Noorda
We like it much better without the belt but the shoes are way too matchy-match.
Model: Karlie Kloss
Feh. It’s alright, we guess.
Model: Holly Graves
Cute. Nothing earth-shattering. We kind of dig the “’40s bathing costume” vibe of it.
Looks like a trashbag and the shoes make her look awfully stumpy.
Pretty, but a bit too formal and ethereal for the event. Oh, and Nicole? Lay off the flat iron for a bit. That hair looks tortured.
Model: Danni Li
Way too much dress. She looks a little like a wedding invitation.
Yawn. Did you hear us? YAWN.
Very cute. Love the sandals.
We got a lot of emails about this one last night. Most people thought it was a version of Carol Hannah’s Bryant Park dress:
But CH herself twittered last night that it wasn’t hers. We’d love to know who the designer was because that’s close enough to be called a ripoff. The shorts don’t help the look.
Note from Carol-Hannah:
“My first thought was “SHORTS??!!”
I don’t know what to say about this. I’m generally one to give the benefit of the doubt, but there’s an awful lot of shady vibes coming from this given the timing, etc. It’s one thing to be copied (potentially)…but a whole other issue when copied poorly.
I would absolutely LOVE to talk to her stylist.”
