The 48th annual American Music Awards took place at Los Angeles’s Microsoft Theater on 22 November. Host Taraji P Henson led the star-studded evening, which is one of the music industry’s biggest and most exciting nights. Some of the most-nominated artists from this year’s awards ceremony included The Weekend and Roddy Ricch, who earned eight nominations, and Megan Thee Stallion, who earned five nods. Performers included some of the biggest acts of the moment, including musicians such as BTS, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Lopez and Maluma and Justin Bieber.

A-list celebrities hit the (socially-distanced) red carpet, showcasing their most theatrical and performance-ready looks before hitting the main stage. The awards show has a history of bold fits – remember Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s double-denim looks in 2001, or Lizzo’s tiny Valentino purse last year? – and this year didn’t disappoint.
