2013 American Music Awards - Arrivals

EXCLUSIVE! Rami Al Ali Defends Kelly Osbourne Against Fashion Critics

25 Nov 2013

The UAE designer insists that Kelly Osbourne's dress at the American Music Awards, which he designed, is beautiful!

Kelly Osbourne was spotted at the American Music Awards wearing a metallic-grey ankle length prom dress by none other than UAE-based designer Rami Al Ali. Sadly Kelly has been criticised for her look, with The Daily Mail Online saying she had a "fashion disaster" and The Mirror.co.uk suggesting she should "sack her stylist".

But here at Ahlan! we are big supporters of the hugely successful local designer, who has also dressed stars including Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé and Gemma Arterton. As Kelly revealed on her Twitter page that her dress "did not look anywhere near as good on camera as it did in real life", we thought we would find out what Rami has to say about it himself.

Rami exclusively told Ahlan!, "Kelly definitely has the personality and charisma to experiment with fashion, but this length is hard to pull off if you are petite. The photographs didn't do the dress or Kelly justice, and as Kelly mentioned on Twitter, it unfortunately didn't photograph well and is far more impressive in real life."

He surely agrees with Kelly and, as we well know, pulling off red carpet style isn't always easy. Rami Al Ali has some fabulous designs and has made a lot of beautiful women look even more stunning, but just remember not to make Kelly's mistake and go for a beautiful dress that doesn’t suit your body shape.
