AMA's Fabulous Fashions

Nov 21, 2011 08:00 AM


Jennifer Lopez was not only a winner at the American Music Awards ... but also on the red carpet. The sexy and single Latina looked fit and phenomenal in a fringed mini dress. Oh my, look at those legs! Marc Anthony eat your heart out!

Vanessa Lachey (yes, she changed her name!) hosted the pre-show, and while her hubby Nick stayed home, the brunette bombshell looked understated, yet elegant in white.

Others who wowed for different reasons ... Audrina Patridge in a cleavage baring mini (really??) and Heidi Klum who strutted the carpet in a foil-looking ensemble.

Jennifer Lopez picked up the prize for Favorite Latin Music Artist Sunday night at the American Music Awards.

Lopez also performed her sexy single "Papi" and joined fellow Latin Music Artist nominee Pitbull for her hit single "On The Floor."

Meanwhile, her soon-to-be ex, Marc Anthony, also hit the stage with collaborator Pitbull to perform "Rain Over Me."

Despite sharing the same space and sharing hit producer Pitbull, J Lo and Marc Anthony seemed to successfully avoid each other ... including Lopez's avoidance of Marc's name in her acceptance speech.

She thanked her family and her long-time manager Benny Medina, but even as she struggled to find her next words, the name "Marc," never popped into her mind ... or at least not out of her mouth!

Adam Lambert Back At The AMA's After Boy-On-Boy Kiss During 2009 Performance

american music awards red carpet Adam Lambert

We thought it wouldn't happen ... Adam Lambert was BACK at the AMA's tonight after his controversial 2009 performance had reportedly had him banned from the show for life!

Turns out, the media had it wrong. After Lambert kissed his male bass player -- a move that was unscripted, said producers -- during his 2009 performance, ABC received more than 1500 calls from unhappy parents and conservative groups spoke out.

Meanwhile, the show's executive producer, Larry Klein, recently told The Hollywood Reporter, Lambert "was never banned from the show."

Klein went on to say: "That thing got so out of control and was just so out of left field. The kiss wasn't in the script. Did Adam rehearse it on his own and not tell us? I have no idea ... Adam was performing on a stage. Did he get carried away? Absolutely. Was he regretful afterward? Of course he was, but it's over. ABC never banned him and Dick Clark Productions never would."

Not one to wisk down the red carpet without being noticed, Adam spiked his hair as high as it's ever been, donned some sparkly silver pants and a vest, and strutted with the best of 'em, with boyfriend, Sauli Koskinen by his side.
