Best Red Carpet Fashion at the American Music Awards 2022
See some of the most striking looks from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where the music industry came together to celebrate the historic 50th annual awards.
The American Music Awards have a long history of delivering spectacular fashion moments, and there was no shortage of daring looks at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Organizers opted for a black carpet at this year’s event, and many attendees did the same in all-black outfits. Rapper and singer Latto arrived in a dark veil and Becky G wore a Monsoori miniskirt with a long train, while Dove Cameron went gothic glam in a Marc Jacobs look.
But there was also plenty of gold, sequins and sparkles, from singer Pink’s fringed Bob Mackie gown to Kelly Rowland’s shimmering cheetah-print gown.
Elsewhere, Anitta wowed in a custom Thierry Mugler outfit with daring cutouts, and singer Bebe Rexha, styled by celeb favorite Law Roach, wowed in a voluminous red Buerlangma gown (pictured above). before her performance on stage with David. Guetta.
