MORNING COFFEE! 2015 American Music Awards Re-Cap and My Red Carpet Best Dressed Picks

Good morntiiing Bizzies!!!

It’s been a cool minute since my last post, four months to be exact!  I’m so sorry, but it was for goood reason, trust me.  I have a couple of projects I’ve been working on and some collaborations that will be revealed in the new year.  So, stay tuned for those announcements!

Now, down to business, the 2015 American Music Awards. This year’s show took place at the Microsoft Theater here in L.A. last night and was hosted by none other that Jennifer Lopez.  She did a pretty decent job, but  of course, the hostess with the most-est did not disappoint with her wardrobe!

J-Lo opened the show with a slowed down version of her hit-song “Waiting for Tonight.”  Showing off her much improved vocal skills, in her performance, she paid tribute by dancing her a** off to some of 2015’s biggest hits with a big dance medley to songs by Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Fetty Wap, Drake, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and more.

Shortly after the start of the show, Selena Gomez hit the stage performing her hit single “Same old Love”.  Her vocals stage presence have also improved a lot and she looked amazing! Rumor has it, she and the Biebs might be considering a reconciliation.


Demi Lovato’s performance was also a hi lite.  She killed it performing her song “Confident” and later collaborated with Alanis Morrisette on her mega-hit “You Outta Know”.


Another “grande” performance was by Ariana Grande.  She debuted her new single “Focus”.  She danced, sang and performed her cute little a** off! Loves her!


Another fave performance was Macklemore. This guys lyrics and performances just keeps getting better and better.  He did a very soulful, emotional and powerful performance debuting his new social awareness single “Kevin”, about prescription drug addiction. He was accompanied by up and coming soul singer Leon Bridges.


And finally, Justine Bieber closed the show performing “What do you mean?” His performance ended wet and rainy as he sang two of his current hits  “Where Are U Now” and “Sorry”.

One of the most questionable moments in the show was the slob down by Charlie Pugh and Meghan Trainor right at the end of their performance of “Let’s Get It On.”


Are they dating?? Full on PDA! It was a little weird!

Anyhoo, overall, I thought the show was pretty good, J-Lo did a good job, and I was entertained.


On to the main event, the evenings red carpet arrivals.  Here are my picks for best dressed:


E!’s Zuri Hall looked amazing in this creamy pastel gown. I thought she was Brandy at first! She looks like a doll!  Loves!


Kendall Jenner shut it down in this black, backless number by Oriett Domenech. She looks sick!!!  (a good sick, like ridiculously hott) Oh and the shoes,  gawd!!! I love everything about this look!

Hannah Davis

Model, Hannah Davis is stunning in this silver mesh number.  She makes this see-through gown look super chic and classy!  Loves!

Julianne Hough

I love this bold, printed, two split dress, Dancing With The Stars judge Julianne Hough, is wearing.  She looks pretty, effortlessly chic and like she could bust a move with no problems!


Awww.  Best accessory goes to, Tyrese Gibson!  Black Ty was accompanied by his beautiful daughter.  They both look amazing!

Al-riiight, Ms. Gwen! I loooves this number by Yousef Al-Jasmi!!!  I am definitely a huge fan of Gwen Stefani’s style and this look is just another reason why.  She’s working the hell out of this nod to the 60’s.

Wilmer Valderrama Demi Lovato

Best dressed couple goes to Wilmer and Demi.  I love this all black everything look on him.  It’s clean and chic!  And this classic beaded floral gown by Lorena Sarbu is a good look for Demi.  She’s rocking a good mix of edgy and classic.  Loves!!


Ciara stunned in this beaded see-through floor length number by Reem Acra.  I mean, can we say body on fleek!!!  This gown is amazing!  I thought I was over the “naked” on the red carpet phase, but it looks like Ciara just revived the whole sitchiation!  Weeerk!

Selena has been killin it on the red carpet lately and this sequined number by Givenchy makes for yet another hit for her. I love the futuristic detail around the arms.  Niiice!

Hailee Steinfeld

Now, I am a sucker for a cute romper or jumper.  I loves this sailor suit inspired Zuhair Murad romper Hailee Steinfeld is wearing.  It’s refreshing, fun and sexy!  And appropriate for this event.   Good job!


Best dressed group goes to a-capella sensation, the Pentatonix.  They look like rock stars! I like the fact that each member is holding their own.  I especially love the bold, black and white print, two piece,  number the group’s female member, Kristie Maldonado is wearing.  And that neck piece! I would totally rock this look!  She looks fantabulous!!

And there you have it, my who wore what and how they looked list.   Again, none of these looks would be possible without the unmentioned glam squads that put these celebs together.
