American Music Award Minis

Project Runway grad Christian Siriano said beading was a big deal at Sunday night's American Music Awards, but I think the under 20 and barely-over starlets rocked in their party-style ultra minis. Sixteen-year-old Miley Cyrus was quite the grown up - on her birthday, nonetheless - in a black and gold goddess shortie. We liked the Pussy Cat dolls coy, cocktail ensembles as well. Even Jordan sparks went way above the knee in canary yellow. Whoohoo! And we loved Rihanna's blush handkerchief-hemmed mini. What do you think about the short dresses? Did the young artists set themselves apart fashionably? Did they give the older songstresses a run for their money?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
