Glam galore at the American Music Awards

Glam galore at the American Music Awards

Every year since the American Music Awards were launched, the industry's hottest stars flock to the red carpet in hopes of going home with a trophy for their talent. This show is different from the Grammys – instead of being decided by a panel of judges, the public's votes determine the winners. While only a select few went home with an award, there were a multitude of winning looks at this event. It's difficult to decide who was the most dazzling among the attendees, but their choice of baubles definitely made a big difference in making their look go from elegant to eye-catching. When you're hoping to stand out at a holiday party or other evening affair this season, take a cue from these stars and don some attention-grabbing bling from Fine Jewelers.

Christina Aguilera
Aguilera is always one to go big or go home when it comes to singing as well as style. This night was no exception. She was rocking a floor length bright white gown with a plunging neckline and side cutouts, and her hair and makeup recalled an old Hollywood vibe. Though the rest of her look had a retro appeal, her jewelry made her look instantly more modern. An intricate pair of glimmering sterling silver earrings gave her ensemble just enough glitz without going over the top.

Heidi Klum
Amidst a multitude of musicians, supermodel Heidi Klum definitely stood out. She was sporting a long black gown with lacy details and an equally dramatic smoky eye, but her jewelry was still the highlight. Shoulder-grazing black and pewter chain earrings added some extra intrigue to the ensemble while also giving it an unexpected edge.

Alicia Silverstone
How do you amp up a metallic dress? With a bevy of metallic bracelets, of course. She kept her outfit relatively simple, wearing a black and gold geo print mini​ dress and black pumps, and her long locks were left loose and flowy. However, she gave the ensemble some flair by mixing gold and silver bracelets for an eccentric finished look.

Zendaya
​There's no better way to show off sculpted arms than with a one-sleeved dress, and Zendaya drew even more attention to them with a stack of jaw-dropping oversized bangles. Her off-the-shoulder white dress had a whimsical feel, but took a surprising turn with stunning silver bracelets that extended from her wrist to halfway up her arm. She was also rocking an oversized pearl cocktail ring, which perfectly complemented her pristine monochromatic outfit while offering just a touch of iridescence.

Taylor Swift
One would think that sparkly earrings would be too much with a glittery gown, but Swift's outfit is proof that the combination can work. The pop/country singer's mini​ dress was entirely covered in rectangular gold sequins, so it already attracted some admiring stares on the red carpet. However, she took things up a notch with shimmery gold cluster earrings, which were peeking out behind her sandy blonde locks.
