Best red carpet fashion at the 2022 American Music Awards
See some of the most eye-catching looks from LA’s Microsoft Theater, where the music industry gathered to mark the awards’ landmark 50th edition.
American Music Awards have a long history of delivering spectacular fashion moments — and there was no shortage of bold looks at LA’s Microsoft Theater on Sunday evening.
Organizers opted for a black carpet at this year’s event, and many attendees followed suit 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 for gothic glamour in a look by Marc Jacobs.
But there was plenty of gold, sequins and sparkle too, from singer Pink’s fringed Bob Mackie dress to Kelly Rowland’s shimmering cheetah print gown.
