The Best and Worst Looks From The 2017 American Music Awards

Some of entertainment’s biggest stars walked the red carpet at the American Music Awards on Sunday night. The ceremony was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and everyone from Lady Gaga to Selena Gomez was in attendance. From classic gowns to unique get-ups, there was definitely no shortage of interesting looks! We’ve put together some of our favorite looks and some of the looks that made us scratch our heads in confusion. Check out The Best of the Best and The Worst of the Worst from the 2017 American Music Awards:

The Best of the Best

Hailee Steinfeld is our Number 1 pick for The Best of the Best at the 2017 American Music Awards. There are few things more chic and stylish than a woman in a fitted suit, and Hailee pulls it off perfectly. From the pointed shoulders to the pointed-toe heels, every part of this ensemble matches perfectly. It’s the perfect combination of sexy and classy and we are obsessed!

Jenna Dewan Tatum looks absolutely breathtaking in this sparkling, semi-sheer gown. The fit is perfect on her figure (although what wouldn’t look go on that figure?) The high slit with the leg peeking-out reminds us of Angelina Jolie at the Oscars in 2012 – and it’s never a bad thing to be compared to Angie! We’re also in love with the short bob hairstyle.

It’s basically impossible for Nicole Kidman to look bad. She’s been the Queen of the Red Carpet for decades now, and it’s no wonder why. Whether it be a dressy event, or a more casual event like this one, she always brings her A-game. Can you believe this woman is 50?! This little black dress and knee-high boots are perfect for the 2017 American Music Awards and we are beyond impressed.

You can never go wrong with a pop of bright red color. Laura Marano looks stunning in this sleek, sexy red dress. It’s simple, yet it has some sparkle – which makes it perfect for the American Music Awards. We also love the fact that she didn’t accessorize with too much jewelry, which lets the dress really be the star of the show.


Rachel Platten looks like perfection in this sparkly semi-sheer jumpsuit. Not everyone can pull off a fitted jumpsuit, but Rachel makes it look easy! This type of fun, sexy outfit is great for an awards show like this. It’s also worth mentioning the flawless hair and makeup. Just look at that hair! We’d kill for perfect waves like those!

The Worst of the Worst

We love Julia Michaels, but this is out Number 1 pick for The Worst of the Worst. We can’t help but think it looks like a Halloween costume. We’re not entirely sure what the embellishment in the middle of the dress is, but at first glance it looks like a knife stabbing Julia in the torso!

There’s few people cooler and more inspiring than Pink, but this look is just a mess. It reminds us of the puffy pink tulle dress that Rihanna wore to the Grammys in 2015 – which was also a mess. The royal blue flower embellishments do not help this dress; they just make it harder to look at.

Selena, we adore you, but we expected something…different. She’s looking beautiful as ever, but all we can think of this look is “biker-chic”. Or is the blonde hair and leather combo a reference o Sandy in Grease? We’re not sure, but we do know we’re not thrilled with the look.

Now what in the world is this? We think Kat Graham may have had her eyes closed when she put this look together. There’s not a single part of this ensemble that goes with another. It’s not that anything is particularly ugly. We love the shirt. We love the shoes. We especially love that round, glittery bag. But all together? No. Just no.

Madelaine Petsch is a beautiful girl, but this is not a beautiful dress. We are getting some very gothic/costume/Hot Topic vibes from this look. The shoes are super cute, but the dress just looks too macabre. She’s at the 2017 American Music Awards, not the Addams Family Reunion.
