American Music Awards 2012 Fashion Hits and Misses (GALLERY)

By: Kristin Koch / November 18, 2012

One of music’s biggest nights, the American Music Awards always offers some of the most creative and eclectic fashion the red carpet has to offer.

Over the past 40 years, the AMAs have seen their fair share of fashion statements — the good, the bad, and the plain old wacky — and this year was no different.

At this year’s AMAs, the fashion was just as hot as the lineup of musical performances hitting the stage, with an endless array of fashion hits walking the red carpet. From sparkly dresses to glam gowns and flirty frocks, we’ve rounded up all the night’s most noteworthy looks.

The stars really sparkled, with shimmery dresses dominating the red carpet, from Taylor Swift’s glam gold-speckled frock and Hayden Panettiere’s shimmery silver dress to Carly Rae Jepsen’s confetti-like halter confection and Ginnifer Goodwin’s pink sparkly mock-neck mini dress.

Sexy styles abounded too, with Heidi Klum and Once Upon a Time‘s Jennifer Morrison rocking daring side slits, and of course, there were some more outrageous fashion moments, including Jordin Sparks‘ busy psychedelic printed gown.

And the red carpet had its share of style surprises too, from Pink and  Nikki Minaj’s surprisingly subdued gowns to Swift’s stem-revealing shorter hemline.

Check out all the best and worst fashion at the 2012 American Music Awards in our AMA red carpet fashion gallery.
