Who ruled the red carpet at the AMAs?

Award shows provide much more than entertainment for those who love fashion. Seeing what celebrities are wearing on the red carpet is a great way to plan your own personal style strategy, especially for special occasions. And, it's important to remember that looking like a star doesn't have to cost a lot. Fashionistas can purchase similar looks at stores that sell used clothing, such as Plato's Closet.

The recent American Music Awards (AMAs) was no exception. Celebs put on the glamour and may have influenced some formal fashion trends going forward. Gold and other metallics as well as vibrant colors seemed to rule the red carpet this time around.

Short dresses were also popular, with stars such as Taylor Swift, Hayden Panettiere, Heidi Klum and Ke$ha choosing leg-baring frocks. All of these ladies made various "best-dressed" lists following the show.

Many celebrities put on a little sparkle with sequins and beading as well. Carrie Underwood got a lot of praise for wearing a long, purple beaded gown. She paired the elegant dress with understated makeup for a perfect balance. Jenny McCarthy and Kelly Rowland also stunned in beads.
