American Music Awards 2018: 12 Best Dressed StarsPublished on October 10, 2018. Updated June 7, 2019
The annual American Music Awards always brings together a stylishly dressed group of stars to celebrate the best in the industry. While there were admittedly a few fashion mishaps, there were also quite a few killer fashion moments that turned heads for all the right reasons. Follow along as we recall 12 of the best-dressed stars from this year’s 2018 American Music Awards:
12. Kyle Richards
Kyle Richards was red hot at this year’s AMA awards where she stepped out wearing this sultry velvet number that featured a deep V neckline and ruching. We love the wrap detailing along the hips and the red color really flattered Richards’ olive complexion.
11. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey wore a dramatic black gown for this year’s AMAs that many fans were on the fence about, but we personally loved it! Her look featured the perfect amount of sultry sheer detailing without being overly revealing. We love the slight sparkle on the bodice and feathered skirt for extra glitz and glamour.
10. Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes looked quite sophisticated and dapper on the AMA red carpet this year. He dressed perfectly for the somewhat casual awards show by wearing a tuxedo suit paired with a printed, unbuttoned shirt. As always, his hair was perfectly undone and coiffed.
Halsey is quite edgy when it comes to her style and this pink and black dress she wore to the AMAs perfectly encapsulates that. The look featured a high-low hemline and cinched in at her waist which showed off her petite figure. We especially love the black strappy sandals she paired with it!
8. Bebe Rexha
Bebe Rexha is typically quite the wild card when it comes to red carpet fashion, but we were pleasantly surprised by her choice of dress for the AMAs this year! Her look featured a little sparkle, unique silver detailing, edgy shoulder pads and a sultry thigh-high slit.
7. Ashlee Simpson
Ashlee Simpson stepped out at this year’s American Music Awards wearing a midnight blue sparkling dress that featured long sleeves, a choker neckline, and a belted waist. We love that Simpson opted for a super high topknot for the event, which is playful but still sophisticated and sleek.
6. Laura Marano
Laura Marano looked elegant as ever on the AMA red carpet in this champagne and silver body-skimming dress. The flattering dress fit Marano like a glove and we love how dainty and feminine these two colors look paired together.
5. Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens looked like an absolute bombshell at this year’s American Music Awards where she stepped out wearing this powder pink satin gown featuring a deep V neckline and sleek shape. The texture and fit of this dress are super luxurious and polished looking, and even more so because of how well the dress fit her!
4. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift definitely made heads turn when she made a rare appearance at this year’s American Music Awards wearing a metallic minidress paired with matching slouchy thigh-high boots. There are few people that could pull off a look this bold, but Taylor’s slender, tall figure makes it work flawlessly.
3. Amber Heard
Amber Heard looked absolutely angelic on the American Music Awards red carpet where she stepped out wearing a soft bronze gown that featured a belted waist and tulle embellished bustline. The dress fit her flawlessly and was truly unique, which is exactly why we loved it!
2. Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood looked absolutely stunning on the AMA red carpet where she showed off her budding baby bump in a black velvet gown that featured gold detailing along the hip and cold-shoulder sleeves. She looked absolutely radiant!
1. Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez showed off her hot pink dress by twirling around the red carpet at last night’s American Music Awards and it was a fashion moment that no one could forget! Bright pink was an unexpected choice of color for J.Lo who typically favors champagne and gold, but we loved to see her in something new and neon!
