7 Best-Dressed Celebs Who Absolutely Slayed At The 2016 AMAs
In a move that differs from the Oscars, the American Music Awards red carpet is known for much more risk-taking and statement fashion. Let's just say that this year, the celebs did not disappoint. The 7 best-dressed stars at the AMAs looked seriously stunning, and they certainly turned heads when they stepped out of their limos.
Selena made headlines with her super important and totally badass speech about her experiences with depression and mental illness at the AMAs, so we already know how incredible she is. But still, she absolutely slayed the red carpet in her red Prada number that looked both totally classic and completely modern at the same time.
If anyone can make a bubble hem dress look sophisticated, it’s the goddess, Ciara. She is the epitome of business on top, party on the bottom in this Stephanie Rolland dress, and her best accessory is her beautiful baby bump.
Our first question is, can we borrow this for our weddings? Our second question is, Gigi, how are you so flawless? The AMAs host herself absolutely stunned when she stepped onto the red carpet in this absolute dream of a white dress by Roberto Cavalli.
From the hair and the earrings to the rings, the coat, and down to the shoes, Janelle Monáe’s black-and-white ensemble is on point. She’s a perfect example how a badass little (Marc Jacobs) mini dress can inspire a whole look, like a decidedly not-evil Cruella de Vil.
Who needs a dress on the red carpet in 2016, amiright? Nina Dobrev takes a suit in a whole new direction with this incredible bedazzled shorts look by Zuhair Murad. Dobrev looks both rocker chic and totally feminine, which is just perfect for the American Music Awards.
Taraji P. Henson
If there was any doubt that Taraji P. Henson is a boss, the AMAs red carpet cleared that up. Henson shows up in a risk-taking white button-down shirt, black lace bra, and heels, and looks straight-up killer, like a glam Risky Business.
Are those sleeves? Are they wings? Who cares, Hailee Steinfeld looks gorg in her little plunging neckline romper by Elie Saab. From the bold turquoise color to the sequins to the matching belt, everything in this look is pitch perfect, if you will.
