Gwen Stefani in black Yousef Al-Jasmi at the AMAs: odd, fug or lovely?


Oh NO. No no no. One of the things I’ve always loved about Gwen Stefani is that she marches to the beat of her own drummer style-wise. Usually, she does enjoy very “clean” red carpet looks, meaning she usually doesn’t go in for a full skirt or tons of ruffles or any of that. But with a new man comes a new style. Now that Gwen is loved up with Blake Shelton, she’s dressing like this. No no no. Gwen wore this black, sheer Yousef Al-Jasmi gown to last night’s AMAs. I… don’t have words.



Jennifer Lopez literally had a dozen costume changes as host of the AMAs. This is what she wore for the red carpet and the backstage press – this is a Nicolas Jebran gown from 2012. It’s far from the best thing she wore last night – go here to see all of her costume changes. J.Lo was pretty try-hard as host, but most people gave her points for at least trying to keep everything light and fun.


Here Derek Jeter’s one and only, Hannah Davis. She wore Naeem Khan and her styling is giving me Elizabeth Olsen vibes. Right?


Even though I feel like we were one stiff breeze away from seeing Julianne Hough’s babymaker, I really like this Naeem Khan gown. God help me. The colors are beautiful and it looks amazing on her. I would have just lowered the front slits a few inches, then it would have been perfect. I can’t believe that I genuinely think Julianne Hough was the best-dressed of the AMAs.


Ciara’s body is like BAM. Ciara wore the hell out of this Reem Acra gown and it looked great on her. On someone else, this might have looked mediocre or even trashy, but Ciara really worked it.


Ellie Goulding in Alexandre Vauthier. I find her boring and overrated as an artist and as a fashion girl, so I’m not really into this.

    They’re all strong contenders for Worst Dressed of the Year, IMO.

  2. MG says:

    So much naked. Ugh.

    Jlo’s body….no words.

    Gwen looks good from the neck up. Love the retro hair do.

    • jenben says:

      agreed. from the neck up, stunning. the outfit, *cringe*

    • PrincessMe says:

      Can’t wait for this naked trend to die. It’s just awful.

      I like Julianne’s dress a bit, though the slits are a bit high.

    • holly says:

      Gwen doesn’t even look like Gwen any more. Another cookie-cutter face, same as all the other red carpet walkers who think they need to “fix” what they’ve got.

  3. Tiara says:

    I’m far from a prude but why are all these women one move away from flashing me their lady bits? And the underwear under sheer dresses look needs to die…like yesterday. It’s just tacky.

  4. Nicolette says:

    What is going on with Gwen? She looks like a bat ready to fly away. I have also always loved her style but lately not so much. And the whole sheer trend is just so trashy honestly. JLo has an amazing body but that dress looks like she just got done working the pole. There are ways to show off your figure without looking cheap. And Hannah’s dress does bring Olsen twin vibes big time.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Gwen looks like Batman gone country.
      JLo had 10 dresses and all of them were hideous. But she never had a good sense of style, did she?
      Ciara does look mediocre and even trashy, as per usual.
      Ellie’s dress isn’t that bad, but the hair is a no-no. Doesn’t she have the prettiest brown eyes, though?

    • Wren says:

      I thought Gwen looked very Elvira Boudoir Chic.

  5. mia girl says:

    Was there a “horrid, tacky dresses only” requirement by the producers? Seriously, aside from the pant-suit in the other AMA post, my eyes hurt from all the ugly.

  6. Hudson Girl says:

    I thought JLo was cute and worked her ass off. Her dance number was great and had a funny cutaway to Nicki Minaj’s not so happy face during her song. (She and JLo clashed during American Idol).
    JLo seemed excited without being nervous and her body is CRAZY. My New Years Resolution is now to amp up my ass. Damn.

    • Nev says:


      Eat it Nicky. JLO was the Original Booty Woman. Have a seat.

    • Jayna says:

      Nicki clashed with Mariah Carey, I thought.

      • Hudson Girl says:

        You’re right I think! Maybe it’s a company loyalty thing then? I’m not sure why then, but, people were cracking up about it on Twitter last night.

      • Twink says:

        Nicki explained she wasn’t throwing shade, that she was just looking at herself on the screen. Casper has choreographed several of Nicki’s videos so I think they’re on good terms.

  7. The New Classic says:

    I love that since she’s ditched Gavin she’s also ditched the tired red lipstick.

    • M.A.F. says:

      I believe she wore the “tired red lipstick” when she performed.

      A red lip will never be tired IMO.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Yes, a thousand times yes! I hated that red lipstick. I got distracted thinking about how it would always be smeared all over everything.

    • AtlLady says:

      Now, if only Gwen would get over the over-bleached hair. I wonder if she even remembers what her real hair color is. It is starting to age her.

  8. Me says:

    Look! Ciara has extra arms and legs! Lol.

  9. Scarlet Vixen says:


    But I do love Ellie Goulding’s shoes.

  10. Kitten says:

    YAWN. Man, these nylon stocking-looking transparent dresses are getting SO damn old and redundant. It’s hard to tell who is designing what since they all look the same and all aim to achieve the same boring illusion of partial nudity. Bleh. Save it for the samba dancers, ladies, because you all look awful.

  11. Crumpet says:

    It was a ‘panties under the sheer drapes’ kind of evening (apparently).

  12. The Devils Parsley says:

    I can’t stop commenting today for so many glorious reasons! These outfits! Glorious! Apparently I’m totally off trend because I honestly had no idea that we are all supposed to wear see thru skirts everywhere. As a 37 year old ex long time gymnast, this look is incredibly freeing. Throw on an old leotard and some gauzy crap, apply too much makeup, head over to whatever event I’ll be attending, and do my best not to make out with Blake “can’t help it crush” Shelton…glorious!

  13. JudyK says:

    Gwen looks IDIOTIC.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. Also try hard and desperate.

    • zinjojo says:

      At first glance, I thought Gwen was Lady Gaga, and that’s not a compliment.

      She’s messing with her face, and between that and the platinum hair, it’s working against her and aging her. She’s tried to keep the same look for decades and it’s not one that will work well as she gets older, so I wonder if she’ll be able to transition to something somewhat more natural looking.

  14. Ollie says:

    i missed we still have Halloween

  15. Catwoman says:

    All I could think of when I saw Gwen’s dress was Silence of the Lambs

  16. Momoko says:

    Either the fashion industry is going through a fabric crisis, or each and every one of them got sold tonnes of sheer…I am tired of this gauche style period…”Beach wear gone fancy”

  17. TulipOHare says:

    Stefani looks so desperate.
    All these dresses are horrid.

  18. snowflake says:

    I am SO tired of seeing everything! Hate this see-through trend. Save it for the bedroom.

  19. What's inside says:

    Kaiser was right. There are no words. Will somebody declare the sheer fashion freakathon extinct already.

  20. islandwalker says:

    Please let the sheer and almost naked trend die a fiery death. We get it already. Have a little mystery for a change.

  21. Maria T. says:

    I’ve noticed that Gwen isn’t doing the bold red lip anymore. Must’ve been a Gavin thing, huh? I have always loved her unique style but this is tragic. What I always loved about her style is that it was a bit tomboyish, even with the bright red lipstick. She has never been one to show too much skin, so this looks kind of… sad.

    • Jayna says:

      She still does bright red lipstick, but not as much. She’s switching it up.

      • Andrea says:

        She did the red lipstick when she sand, its still around but maybe Blake prefers her in a bit of diversity with the lipstick (methinks she does whatever men prefer).

    Gwen Stefani: Sexy Funeral Attendee, The paramour of the guy

    Ciara:Amazing Body, Another paramour of the guy who’s having a Funeral ^^ Upon hearing that Gwen was coming she decided to wear her fanciest Lingerie

    Ellie Goulding: 90s Movie “dork/Ugly Girl” Makeover recipient of the night

    Hannah Davis: Sexy Joan of Arc Formal See Through Teas

    Jennifer Lopez: You know when your girlfriend told you in the 80s that she had gauzy toned fantasies of being restrained with satin ties? THIS

    Julianne Hough: Sexy Greek Vase

    Basically all these girls got invited to a “Sexy Costume Formal Party” everyone was confused but made do with the theme

  23. Jayna says:

    Jennifer is just a mess.

  24. JenniferJustice says:

    Apparently JLo does not care that she wears the same dress redone over and over. So lame and predictable. Tired of seeing her fake boob cleavage and as much skin as possible without being completely naked. Her style wreaks of the need for constant reassurance = insecurity.

    I don’t like Gwen’s “dress?” if that’s what we’re calling it. She does look like she’s gained a few much needed pounds though, and I love that she’s moved away from the punk look with red lips. Toning down the makeup has done wonders for her.

    The sheer trend is way too played out. Please stop.

  25. Angel l says:

    Gwen looks like she is Morticia Addam’s bleached out, skanky cousin.

  26. Paloma says:

    Did not like Gwen’s outfit. Also, wish she would tone down her hair color; it looks fake. She’s pretty, but needs to learn how to accentuate what she has.

  27. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    Could not agree with Kaiser more about one of the reasons I’ve always loved Gwen was the fact that she always marched to the beat of her own drum. Gwen’s style has always been her own, it just seems so weird to see her in a trendy-ish gown. Hopefully this doesn’t become a trend for her. I love Gwen’s originality.

    This trend of see-through dresses needs to die. It’s such a stupid look. Also just goes to show that some people will do anything as long as they’re told it’s trendy.

  28. Doodle says:

    Those dresses all look really uncomfortable. One false move and it’s all over.

  29. Chaucer says:

    I’d disagree with Gwen’s past style being great. She’s always dressed to me like a 90’s chola.

    This is absolutely horrible. She looks like the Wicked Witch of the West in a porno knockoff.

  30. Jag says:

    From the neck up she looks great, but from the neck down it’s horrendous!

  31. Vizia says:

    Streisand, Oscars 1969.

  32. Twink says:

    Jlo deserves her own post, all of her costume changes were amazing! She looked so gorgeous in all of them, is there anything she can’t pull off?

  33. kri says:

    Gwen…WTF is THAT. She looks like a bat/hooker hybrid that flies in and out of a batcave/whorehouse. I can’t even make words…someone help.

  34. kri says:

    It looks like implants are the new Lorraine Schwartzes of 2015. JLO, Salma Hayek..who else has these? And on another topic…Ciara. I hate you I love you I hate I love you. THAT BODY. Damn.

  35. FingerBinger says:

    Gwen Stefani looks like a Marilyn Manson groupie circa 1996. They all look terrible.

  36. Holmes says:

    Gwen looks like a 60s playboy bunny as interpreted by the Addams family. And what has she done to her face??

    JLo needs to put it away. Jesus H. Christ.

    • Andrea says:

      LOL to the playboy bunny meets adams family comment.

      I am not sure Jlo needs to put everything away so much as wear something more stylish less vegas showgirlesque.

  37. sassy says:

    the dresses are so horrible i actually thought the feet were part of the dress……..

    • me says:

      The quest for who can get away with showing the most skin has taken over ant sense of actual fashion.

  38. Deedee says:

    Zendaya was one of the few well dressed celebs, and the waist still seemed a bit too low. These outfits shown are Muy feo.

  39. Rockin Robin says:

    I need all of them to report to the trash bin.

  40. me says:

    I kind of find Gwen to be a little over-rated as a solo artist. She was good in No Doubt but is any of her solo work really that good? Also, I think people are getting sick of her because of all the extra coverage surrounding her relationship status. I still can’t believe people liked her song “Holla back girl”. That was a horrible song. I don’t get it.

  41. Cara says:

    When will we escape JLo??? Good Lord, I am tired of her…
    Gwen’s new face confuses my brain…it looks like her and yet doesn’t look like her…Very odd.

  42. iheartgossip says:

    She has had so much ‘work’ done on her face, I thought she was Jenny McCarthy, at first. Mid-life crisis is a biotch, eh Gwen?? Dial it back some gurl. Her thirst and desperation are embarrassing. (to me)

  43. Twinkle says:

    Gwen needs to find a new look. She’s so tacky. It was tongue-n-cheek fun when she was young. Not so much now. It just looks old and tired.

  44. maggie says:

    Gwen was a real disappointment at the music awards. I didn’t realize she was such a narcissist.

  45. Sassy says:

    Awful. All of it. Tacky.

  46. Blonde555 says:

    Lol love the pic of Ciara! Looks like she is dragging her dress fluffer everywhere!

  47. TotallyBiased says:

    Sheer efFrontery…..

  48. Caz says:

    Yep. No words.
