A fun thing to think about, when you’re really bored, is how celebrity red-carpet fashion might translate into the real world. What might happen if you wore J. Lo’s legendary 2000 Grammys dress to a friend’s party? What about dressing up in matching denim with your partner to go out to dinner, à la Britney and Justin? Would you go out for a birthday in Lil’ Kim’s 1999 MTV VMA outfit, complete with a violet pasty covering your left nipple?
If your answer to any of these is yes, we salute your bravery. It seems safe to say that celebs’ red-carpet wear might not work at real-life events all that often.
From the excess of glitter, to the bright red dresses, to the tulle and the Whoville hairdos, we just have to ask: Would you wear any of these AMA outfits to your holiday party?
We’re serious here: some of them would really work. Take a look at the outfits in the gallery below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
