#FashionFile: The 2018 American Music Awards Red Carpet

The American Music awards took place last night, and as you know award shows starts with the red carpet. With every award show, expect glamour and fashion – and it was no different this year at the AMAs, hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross. The threads were at times risky, but all of the looks made major fashion statements that we will remember.

Have a look at what the stars wore this year.

HALLE BAILEY and CHLOE BAILEYEven though we love these two, their look was a bit off. It seemed like they took material and just cut a hole to fit their heads and then they were off! We’ll let things slide this time because they’ve had incredible fashion moments in the past and always look incredible. So we’ll pretend that this just never happened…

KHALIDWe love this look! Khalid opted for a pink matching set that featured white decorative stitching and he completed the look with a polo neck, silver chain and chunky trainers.

DUA LIPADua looked elegant in an off-white gown, and even though the style is clinched in at the waist and mid thigh, it still looked a bit ill fitted for the singer.

RITA ORAIs this Rita Ora? This was a major miss! Oh Rita why??! She’s always seen in the most dramatic, trendy and fashionable looks that this look is really confusing us. This black gown that featured floral embroidery looked dated for the star.

TRACEE ELLIS ROSSHost Tracee wore a blush pink suit, and even though we would’ve liked the pants to be longer covering the shoes, she still looks very chic.

TAYLOR SWIFTTaylor made her first award appearance after 3 years in a showstopping disco ball-inspired Balmain mini dress and matching boots. It may be a lot for some, but we love this look! It’s different and fun!

VANESSA HUDGENSVanessa went for a classic and elegant look in a blush pink gown with a plunging neckline.

TYRA BANKSErr… Tyra are you at the wrong event?… The supermodel attended the AMAs in a sparkly fringe skirt  with a voluminous white shirt and ankle boots. What is going on here? We almost thought we were writing about a red carpet event for a burlesque show.

CIARAGive us your legs, Ciara!! The mom of two showed off her legs in a dress that featured zip detailing.

JENNIFER LOPEZJennifer Lopez  stunned in a hot pink Georges Chakra dress which showed plenty of cleavage and some leg with a slinky thigh-high slit. It also featured a black strip around her waist which accentuated her curves.

CARDI B and OFFSETIt was literally a floral explosion when Cardi stepped on the carpet. Cardi B made an entrance with her husband Offset in a floral gown, complete with a lace-up corset style bodice and ornate headpiece.

HEIDI KLUMHeidi Klum wore a daring sheer crochet and fringe Julien MacDonald dress.

EVAN ROSS and ASHLEE SIMPSONOne of our favourite couples looked incredible in coordinated outfits. Ashlee wore a sequined wrap dress and Evan wore a blue/ green suit.

Fashion Editor I am a stylist and have worked with many celebrities. Magazines are a great platform to inform people on styling and fashion trends. Fashion gives freedom to people and allows them to be who they want to be. I loves to help readers to look as stylish as they can be, regardless of their body type, skin colour etc. It’s a great feeling to have knowing, that in helping someone choose an outfit, you’re also helping them feel more confident. When I'm not busy being a fashion editor I can be found designing and drawing.
