Whee for awards show fashion! I just love it. I can barely function when I’m not wearing some kind of sweatshirt material or Lycra, but hey. A girl can admire that what she doesn’t have, right? Sure.

Here’s the list for Worst Dressed, and in all honesty, even the worst dressed weren’t all that bad (well, some of them were CHRISTINA AGUILERA).

Number five, Ke$ha. Which is disappointing, because sometimes girl looks amazing, and sometimes she looks like a bag of squashed balls. And in this case, it’s the squashed balls thing:

Four, Pink, because she’s just too short and compact a girl to wear such high-necked frocks, and also, Kim Kardashian wore that same dress not all that long ago:

Three, Carrie Underwood. I know, to some of you, Carrie Underwood can do no wrong. But this dress? It’s all, all wrong and there’s no amount of right that can make it right again:

Two, Jordin Sparks, because while girlfriend is undeniably gorgeous, this dress looks like something that she needs rescuing from. It looks like it’s devouring her. It’s like a bondage outfit that grandma might wear:

And in first place, as you all know, Christina Aguilera. Because what the hell color spray tan is that? And the dress? I don’t know whether to blow my nose in it or borrow it for my little cousin to wear to her first semi-formal:

Worst? Best? Who did it for you guys?

The 5 Best Dressed at the 2012 American Music Awards

You guys heard from Emily earlier this morning that the AMAs weren’t all that much to sneeze at, and guys, I completely agree. I honestly fear for the future of popular music, as if it isn’t all that bad to start (no, really; it is).

One thing that didn’t disappoint, however, was the fashion. Because there was a lot of good fashion, guys, and coming from me, that should mean a lot. There were actually more dresses that I loved than those I didn’t, and that always surprises me.

Anyway, number five would have to be ‘Gangnam Style’s Psy, and while we don’t usually put dudes on the Best Dressed list (because really, a suit is a suit is a pants and shirt), he was pretty awesome in his get-up:

In the number four slot, Nicki Minaj, because that dress is just gorgeous, and the phosphorescent banana color is probably one of my favorites in life:

Number three, Kerry Washington, because what a beautiful woman, that dress, those shoes, and naturally, that color:

Two, Taylor Swift, because she’s been on pretty much every Best Dressed list this year. She can’t date for shit, but dressing? Girl’s got it on lockdown:

Last, in first place, we have a lady that I’m so, so not fond of, but can’t deny that her outfit is amazing, and she looks pretty good, too—Jenny McCarthy:

The American Music Awards Were Really Disappointing

A photo of Christina Aguilera

We’ll probably do more fashion posts later, but let that photo of Christina Aguilera up there be a preview of just how disappointing this awards show was. That dress is terrible, isn’t it? What year does she think she’s in?

But anyway, let’s focus on the actual awards right now, all right? Because it’s basically bullshit. Let me show you a list of the winners:
