Pink, Taylor, Rihanna, and Carrie, oh my! Four of the music industry’s biggest female stars have received nominations for the 2013 American Music Awards, and it’s Taylor Swift (who just so happens to be InStyle‘s November cover girl) who leads the pack of women with the most nominations with five — yes five — noms this year. Aside from the awards themselves, we’re looking forward to seeing what these four ladies will wear to wow us on the red carpet like they usually do. Judging by past AMA looks, we’re confident they won’t disappoint! At last year’s award show, we loved Swift’s floral embroidered Zuhair Murad frock, which was a nice departure from the 23-year-old’s oft-favored long gowns. Fellow country star and this year’s Favorite Female Country Artist nominee Carrie Underwood also wore an embroidered dress that year, but she went with a bold color, choosing an electric purple Abed Mahfouz. Pink, who is nominated in two categories this year, kept her look at last year’s awards demur, walking the carpet in a bronze Catherine Deane gown featuring a laser-cut bodice. And last but certainly not least, Rihanna — who trails Taylor by one nomination — has been absent from the awards show for the past two years, but it’s hard to forget her stunning scarlet sheer and floral embroidered Elie Saab gown at the 2010 awards. For the full list of nominees, visit theamas.com (where you can also vote for your favorite artist) and catch the 2013 American Music Awards November 24, airing live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
