The Best Dressed at the American Music Awards

By  |  0 Comments

The AMAs were a memorable award show for so many reasons, but you know we’re all about the outfits!

The fantastical night celebrating music had some incredible performances and moments commemorating some of the best in the business, and our favorite stars didn’t fail to impress us not only with their pipes, but with their ensembles.

However, we were surprised that some of the simplest, safest looks of the night ended up being the most chic, with many other stars going for the glam but missing the mark.

Selena Gomez in Coach

Perhaps the most talked about moment of the evening was when Selena Gomez stepped out debuting blonde locks!

Selena looked fresh and healthy and a little bit edgy in a cute leather minidress, paired with a simple black clutch and black pumps. Her bold red lip warms up her face and adds a little more attitude to her look.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Julien Macdonald

We don’t think Jenna has ever had a bad red carpet moment in… maybe forever?

Jenna looked absolutely radiant in a glittering gold dress with a low plunge and high slit to show off her awesome legs. Her skin looked absolutely perfect, and we love how she went very minimal with her hair and makeup. She looks like an award herself!

Hailee Steinfeld in Mugler

We’re a huge fan of how women are adopting more masculine apparel and making it their own sexy look.

Hailee rocks a fun black suit with exaggerated shoulders, but transforms the typically business attire with a strappy black longline bralette underneath. Her wet, slicked back hair adds to the sexy, powerful message she’s sending.

Lea Michele in J. Mendel

Sometimes a simple gown with the right details make for a spectacular ensemble.

Lea glows in a pale pink J. Mendel gown, built with a bustier-inspired top with halter straps and a simple flowing skirt. Her bronze kissed skin absolutely shines against the simple gown, with minimal accessories and straight hair pulled from her face making Lea look like a fashion-forward angel.

Maia Mitchell in Alberto Audenino

Who knew a one shoulder jumpsuit could be so hot?!

This Alberto Audenino jumpsuit worn expertly by Maia could have easily been a worst-dressed option if she didn’t style it so perfectly. The large leather belt helps to break up the bold ruffling, and Maia kept her accessories easygoing with some thin gold bangles and earrings. It’s such a sophisticated look for such a young star, but she definitely carries herself so well to make it work.
