Music stars energized the 2018 American Music Awards red carpet with lively outfits fit to match the powerful performances that lit up the night (ICYMI: Taylor Swift’s opening act and Cardi Bi’s stimulating show). Basically, a high-powered dress code was definitely enforced this year and the celebrities took note.
For the ladies, futuristic-inspired textures, statement two-piece sets and a wide range of pattern styles were just a few of the trends that ruled the red carpet.
Cardi B wore a floral gown with a matching head wrap. This look reminds me of my favorite salsa dancer emoji. 💃
Taylor Swift in a sparkly metallic, textured mini dress with matching knee boots. Take note if you’re already planning your Mars vacation wardrobe.
Ashlee Simpson in a shiny, deep sapphire wrap dress.
Ella Mai broadcasted super-duper comfy chic in an oversized mint blue suit.
Poppy definitely caught America’s attention with her fuzzy dress and muzzle? The buzz-worthy winner, for sure.
Jennifer Lopez and Vanessa Hudgens rocked the pretty in pink vibe in two different styles. Hudgens’ slinky blush gown wins my pink vote!
For the most part, the men’s attire included a mix of reserved and wild.
In the reserved arena, Evan Ross and Rami Malek nailed the statement suit look with checkered prints.
Zedd dazzled a fully covered crystal suit top.
And walking on the wild side…
Bad bunny in a skull graphic button down and a third eye? Cue more of the ????’s.
