The Good, The Bad & The Meh From The AMAs

Some stars slayed it, while others fell flat at the American Music Awards

Demi Lovato
23 Nov 2015

Demi Lovato

With her old-school waves, blood-red lips and Lorena Sarbu dress, Lovato looks like a sultry actress from the past — and smoking hot.

Tove Lo

Tove Lo

Most sheer dresses have more fabric around the boob and crotch, but not this one, which covers up singer/songwriter Lo’s most innocuous area: Her stomach. Weird and wonderful at the same time - we can’t take our eyes off her. Can you?

Ashley Benson

Ashley Benson

We love pantsuits on the red carpet, but Benson’s outfit, paired with boring ol’ pumps, just makes us want to buy insurance from the Pretty Little Liars star.

Gigi Hadid
23 Nov 2015

Gigi Hadid

Of course the newly minted Victoria’s Secret Angel would look good in an outfit with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit. But what really caught our eye was her stunning smile and refreshing cropped ‘do (which may be a faux bob, by the way).

Gwen Stefani
23 Nov 2015

Gwen Stefani

Nice top, Stefani. But did you forget to pull up your skirt?

Kendall and Kylie Jenner
23 Nov 2015

Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Kylie looks badass in her custom chainmail-and-leather Bryan Hearns dress. But Kendall would score more points at Comic Con for her mod version of Street Fighter’s Chun Li.

Meghan Trainor
23 Nov 2015

Meghan Trainor

Three letters to describe Meghan Trainor’s red carpet look — M.E.H. We swear we saw the same thing at our secondary school prom...20 years ago.

One Direction
23 Nov 2015

One Direction

This is a lesson in how to make your bandmates look invisible, by Harry Styles. As the rest of his pals decided to go blah in boring grey, black and navy, he stole the show in a monochrome floral suit and flowing locks. 

Zendaya
23 Nov 2015

Zendaya

Top-to-toe pink is hard to pull off without looking like a wannabe Barbie, but Zendaya manages to make it work in her Ungaro shirt and skirt, and neon pink Louboutins.

Selena Gomez
23 Nov 2015

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez’s dress may look tame from the front, but the back is a whole different story. We love the surprise!

Carrie Underwood
23 Nov 2015

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood channels her inner superhero in this sparkly dress and cape combo. Subtly auditioning for the next Marvel movie, maybe? 

Ciara
23 Nov 2015

Ciara

We’ve seen plenty of barely-there frocks on the red carpet, but this one by Reem Acra worn by Ciara is definitely one of our favourites. 

Hailee Steinfeld
23 Nov 2015

Hailee Steinfeld

The actress-singer toes the line between sexy and sweet in this nautical-inspired number by Zuhair Murad.

Jenny McCarthy
23 Nov 2015

Jenny McCarthy

Hey McCarthy, Britney called. She wants her Hit Me Baby One More Time outfit back. 

Julianne Hough
23 Nov 2015

Julianne Hough

The two-time Dancing with the Stars champion is ethereal in an intricately embellished Naeem Khan dress and ashy blond hair.

Yet another awards show, yet another best and worst-dressed list. We spotlight the stars who shone and those who fizzled out on the red carpet at the American Music Awards 2015.
