Los Angeles was home to the American Music Awards Sunday night and it was a night full of winners! Several celebs hit the red carpet to show off their looks! The big fashion winners of the night were Miley Cyrus who cleaned up well in a crisp white pantsuit, Naya Rivera who slayed in a body hugging black dress, and Taylor Swift who was glam in a short golden dress. Katy Perry looked fab in a cute Oscar de la Renta gown and Nicole Ritchie looked great in a white form-fitting, cut-out dress.
Other great looks of the night were Ariana Grande, Zendaya, the legendary Joan Jett, Jennifer Hudson, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner!
Black and white seemed like the colors of the night as Miley Cyrus‘ older sister Brandi Cyrus complimented her little sis in a white dress. Ke$ha looked great in a high split black gown while Heidi Klum and Zoe Saldana turned heads in unique pieces. Glee’s Jenna Ushkowitz brought a little color to the red carpet in a low-cut red dress!
The ladies of Rap & R&B also showed up and showed out on the red carpet. Lil Mama donned a black and green gown, Jordin Sparks looked great in a studded black and gold dress, and Rihanna took an unexpected route wearing a black two-piece ensemble.
