In the latest installment of virtual awards ceremonies, the 2020 American Music Awards took place last night, with what we hope was a socially-distant red carpet as well as some exciting on-stage performances.
Now we know awards ceremonies still aren’t quite the same, evident as AMA award winner Bad Bunny was not even able to attend due to a positive COVID testing, and the “virtual in-person” concept is still a little shaky, but awards show fashion gives us a much appreciated sense of normalcy. Take a look at the best AMA outfits below.
On the Carpet
An absolute bombshell, Laverne Cox brought it to last night’s award show in this statuesque, asymmetrical bodysuit and gown number. Bangs have never looked so good.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
Winning the award for Hottest Couple, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly made their red carpet debut at the AMAs, and we’re all green with envy over Megan’s striking emerald dress.
Stunning in red and black on the red carpet, which is technically black, Ciara’s AMAs look is billowy yet bold with a powerful thigh-high slit.
The soon0to-be “Selena” star Christian Serratos shined at the AMAs last night in this sheer diamond look with strategically placed bows.
Colombian singer Maluma looked sharp on the red carpet prior to his steamy performance on-stage performance with J-Lo.
Rocking a Balmain two-piece, J-Lo’s fresh, short haircut perfectly complemented her daring look.
While some viewers were confused and slightly concerned as to why The Weeknd chose this bloodied, bandaged look for the American Music Awards, there’s a meaningful message behind it. If you recall The Weeknd’s similar look to the VMAs, he’s been wearing these gruesome looks as a message against drinking and driving, something he’s been promoting in his new music over the past several months.
Dua Lipa’s fun underwater starfish look dazzled on the red carpet, complete with mermaid-esque bra cups and shiny waves.
On the Stage
Slipping into something a little more comfortable, Due Lipa wore a metallic mini-dress as she levitated for her awe-inspiring performance.
Looking deliciously boy-next-door, VMan cover star Shawn Mendes delivered an emotional performance of his latest single “Wonder.”
Megan Thee Stallion
Accepting the award for Best Rap/Hip-hop song last night, Megan brought it in a neon mini, and then stunned us even more in a sparkly sheer catsuit for her performance of “Body.” “Good News” on repeat!
The BTS boys showed off their style prowess in these pastel suits for their AMA on-stage appearance.
Rocking converse on the AMA stage, V’s very own thought leader Billie Eilish delivered a stunning performance in this expertly casual look.
Taraji P. Henson
Last but certainly not least, V had to honor AMAs host Taraji P. Henson’s jaw-dropping multiple outfit changes. Giving glittery glam in her red carpet look, Taraji then opened the show dancing to “WAP.” Rocking about a dozen different outfits, she closed the show in a stunning embellished neon number.
