2008 American Music Awards (AMAs)

The 2008 American Music Awards was, without a doubt, a hallmark event of the year. With celebrities from Taylor Swift to Kanye West bagging favorite artist awards, the AMAs accurately reflected the wide scope of music admired by Americans.

The artistic abilities of the numerous celebrities present at the event were not only reflected in the songs they belted out that evening, but were also reflected in the styles they carried themselves in. Celebrity dresses, such as those worn by Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, and Rihanna show that short dresses are undoubtedly today’s trendy must-haves.
