Candice Glover won "American Idol" Season 12 over Kree Harrison as Psy, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin performed.
'American Idol' fashion: Black and white all over
Black and white were the major color themes on "American Idol" Wednesday night, and we’re not just talking about the contestants. Nicki Minaj led the way with a black and white ensemble, and she underscored the combo with a platinum wig that featured a black part down the middle.
Candice Glover donned a white studded jacket over a simple black top and pant outfit, jazzing up the outfit up with a pair of red stilettos. Juliana Chahayed, 15, who we wish they didn’t cut, looked sweet and age appropriate in a white frock with a cutout back paired with red shoes.
Rachel Hale went monochromatic, too, adding a touch of sparkle with sequins at the collar of her sleeveless top. Breanna Steer was pure vixen in a slim black jumpsuit with a little embellishment at the waist and big, sparkly shoes. Minaj heartily approved of the look.
Cristabel Clack added fire to her get-up with a red skirt that matched her chunky red beaded necklace, worn with a black top and a white, bow printed sweater. Petite Jett Hermano went for black sparkles in a slouchy, off the shoulder number over slim pants. Animal prints were the choice du jour of two gals.
Melinda Ademi’s quirky little outfit featured a leopard print top worn with black leather shorts, pink tights and boots. Zoanette Johnson worked one crazy get up – a high-low hemmed animal print skirted-dress that featured a leather bustier top, leather jacket with animal print cuffs and matching shoes. Keith Urban called her, “The queen of the jungle.”
Country gal Janelle Arthur did not look put together -- kind of a snooze in her fringy peach top, jeans and cowboy boots. Overall, it wasn't great in terms of fashion -- send in the stylists. Best look of the night? Sexy Aubrey Cleland's curve clinging bandage dress that bucked the black and white theme – it was champagne – appropriate, as her performance was something to celebrate.
