A Night of Music, Fashion & Luxe Clutches at the 2012 AMAs

Nov 20 2012 • by Deanna

Fashion and music truly go hand in hand as witnessed in the recently concluded 2012 American Music Awards 40th Anniversary held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. It was also a night of stunning performances by Pink, Taylor Swift, No Doubt and Korean sensation Psy with MC Hammer (surprise, surprise!).

As one would expect from watching too many red carpet arrivals, the entrance of the entertainment venue was filled with celebrities and music artists all dressed in gorgeous creations that were awards night-perfect. A few stars went empty-handed (read: no clutch in hand) but quite a few wore some really fancy clutches. Here are our picks:

Carly Rae Jepsen

The singer and AMA 2012 New Artist of the Year looked adorable in her sequined Gomez-Gracia halter dress which she accessorized with Brian Atwood shoes and a nude pearlescent Edie Parker clutch.

Carly Steel

Next on our list is another Carly. The actress and host carried an embellished Paola Graglia baguette which we really, really love. She also wore the same clutch to the Valentino Rodeo Drive Flagship store opening this year.

Carrie Underwood

The country superstar, who also won Favorite Country Album for “Blown Away”, literally blew us away with her sparkly floor-grazing gown in purple and embellished with sequins. She matched her gown with a gold Jill Milan clutch called the 450 Sutter.

Christina Aguilera

I have mixed feelings about The Voice judge’s dress — a lilac Pamella Roland creation. Still, Christina chose the right accessories to complement it: Jimmy Choo shoes, Neil Lane jewelry and a beaded crystal Judith Leiber minaudiere.

Elisha Cuthbert

The Happy Endings star was radiant in a sequined Georges Chakra strapless gown which she matched with a clutch in an opposite color: a Jimmy Choo Tube with sparkling glitter.

Ginnifer Goodwin

Ginnifer looked like a life-sized doll with her pixie hair, pink Oscar de la Renta dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Radiant Cut Crystal Minaudiere by Judith Leiber.

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden always seems to be on the right note with her red carpet looks. Here, the Nashville star is seen wearing a white sequined Armani dress paired with satin Giuseppe Zanotti platform peep toes and matched with a Giorgio Armani Origami Clutch in velvet and satin.

Hillary Scott

Winning the Favorite Country Band/Group/Duo award together with her band Lady Antebellum, Hillary truly looked like a winner in her LBD with puffed sleeves, plus a Giuseppe Zanotti metallic clutch.

Lucy Hale

The Pretty Little Liars star deserves a kiss with her simple yet striking getup featuring an Elizabeth and James black dress, Brian Atwood shoes, and a classic Lulu Guinness lips clutch.

Stacy Keibler

The leggy Stacy Keibler sure knows how to show off her best assets in a beaded Collette Dinnigan dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and a black Judith Leiber East-West leather clutch.
