Silver metallics may have populated the red-carpet at last night’s 2011 American Music Awards, but Taylor Swift’s sequins took home the gold.
Taylor, who turns 22 this December, won three awards last night: Favorite Female Country Artist, Favorite Country Album, and biggest of all, Entertainer of the Year (beating out Adele, Lady Gage, Lil Wayne and Katy Perry!). We’d like to award Taylor one more – Best Jewelry of the Night.
Taylor not only wowed in her Reem Acra, strapless gown, but she also wore the most envy-inducing emerald earrings. The bright green color could be spotted from yards away and looked especially lively against her sleek ponytail (a refreshing choice). Taylor follows in a long line of other famous stars that also have a penchant for emerald, including Sophia Vergara and Angelina Jolie.
Although in our eyes Taylor won by a landslide, our runners-up also dressed to impress. Christa B. Allen, a star in the new hit-series Revenge, arrived wearing some juicy gem earrings, two bold cocktail rings, and a snakeskin cuff. Her jewels and accessories heightened her outfit and her earrings reminded us of our Naked Cushion Double Earrings in smoky quartz.
Katherine Heigl, who is not a musician herself, but happens to be married to one, is our second runner-up. She arrived with hubby Josh Kelly and together they presented Taylor Swift with the award for Best Country Album. Katherine is not normally one to reveal too much skin, yet she chose to wear a very low-cut dress. We think she totally rocked it. Her Sutra tassel earrings were a fabulous compliment and they added a little fun to her sexy look.
