Bright colors took over the fall time red carpet of the 2012 American Music Awards last night. Check out which YBF celebs put on their Sunday glammed up best to see who would take home awards. Red carpet pics inside...
Sunday evening at the 40th American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, Nicki Minaj, Brandy, Jordin Sparks & her boo Jason Derulo, Kelly Rowland and plenty more hit the red carpet for the big night of music.
Nicki, who copped the awards for Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded& Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist, made sure to rock an attention grabber of a dress.
She put on a traditional style strapless ruched dress with a very full bottom from Monique Lhuillier. But it was the neon citrine color that made a statement. And of course, her uber blonde wiggery and crazy poses. Her jewelry was by Charles Albert.
Brandy looked pretty much flawless in a gold shimmering asymmetrical dress and laid hair and gorgeous makeup.
She definitely took a risk with this bold look, but we're loving it.
Chris Brown made an appearance on the carpet in a sleek black leather look with his gold & white sneakers.
Well look at the two lovebirds Jordin Sparks & Jason Derulo. The twosome locked lips on the carpet and came up for air long enough to take some head-on shots:
Well aren't they precious. Sparkle star Jordin rocked a multi-print long gown from the Etro Fall 2012 collection. And pulled it off nicely.
Fresh faced and pretty as always.
Speaking of fresh faced....
Kelly Rowland looked her usual gorgeous self in a Naeem Khan Fall 2012 dress embellished with mirrored stones and felt applique. Good look for her.
Tyga, who celebrates a birthday today (Monday) rocked head to almost-toe red. Of course he did. But where's that hairline?
The new 'Entertainment Tonight" correspondent Rocsi Diaz showed off her gams in a black & white peplum & dramatic shoulder mini dress.
Swizz Beatz borrowed Kanye's diamond grille for the evening.
"Scandal" star Kerry Washington also rocked a bright color on the yellow end of the spectrum like Nicki Minaj. But unlike Nicki, she went the sheer lace route in her Stella McCartney Resort 2013 longsleeved dress. She accessorized with a yellow Kotur clutch and coral pumps. And some type of way, pulled this difficult almost frumpy look completely off.
50 Cent made his way on the carpet in a checkered button down & grey suit. He was on hand to present an award to Nicki Minaj.
"90210" star Tristan Wilds hit the carpet before he took over his own red carpet hosting duties for the night.
Ludacris & Sean Kingston rocked leather & printed jackets and jeans for the occasion.
And will.i.am rocked his usual completely unusual look.
