The style on the 2007 American Music Awards catwalk was all about gold and black as modeled by Beyonce Knowles, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Ashanti, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Then & Now AMA's Style: Beyonce

For the 2006 American Music Awards, the Houston, Texas singer decided upon this turquoise Elie Saab number. At this year, Beyonce went for a golden look in this strapless fishtail curve-hugging House of Deréon dress. I don't know about that blue detailing in the bodice but Beyonce makes this look work!

Then & Now AMA's Style: Alicia Keys

The last time Alicia Keys appeared on the catwalk for the American Music Awards was back in 2004. There the Hell's Kitchen, NY native rock a brown and black military-inspired Roberto Cavalli top. For this year's event, Alicia Keys kicked up her style several notches in this black beaded Emporio Armani cocktail number. (I do love her Chanel bracelets!)

Then & Now AMA's style: Ashanti

At the 2004 American Music Awards, the Glen Clove, NY native wore this peach, brown, and white Roberto Cavalli gown. For this year's show, Ashanti rock a canary yellow princess-like gown.

2007 AMA's style: Rihanna

For her first time at the American Music Awards (surprise! surprise!), Rihanna lit up the catwalk in a Armani Prive knee-length dress and a black pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. The Covergirl spokesmodel performed her hits, "Umbrella" and "Hate that I Love You" in a beige form-fitting Zac Posen number.

Then & Now AMA's style: Nicole Scherzinger

At last year's American Music Awards, Nicole rock a blush pink low-cut dress before changing into gold sequin low-cut Roberto Cavalli number for her PCD performance. For this year's event, Nicole changed into three eye-catching outfits. (Nicole belted out her hit, "Baby Love" in a pair of black YSL heels and a silver sequin asymmetrical mini-dress.) For her red carpet look, Nicole went for a multi-colored v-neck gown.
