The AMAs red carpet is always a great place to see celebrity outfits, both great and terrible. The fun atmosphere of the awards ceremony means stars tend to get a bit more experimental in their style - with some successful, and some (unintentionally) hilarious results.
We've got forty of the very best (and ten of the very worst) dressed celebrities from the 2019 AMAs right here, and some truly have to be seen to be believed.
40. Billy Porter

via: Getty ImagesShe never fails to look incredible, and this adorable Valentino number is no exception.
38. Dua Lipa
via: Getty ImagesThis pink Miu Miu gown is a little basic, but there's no denying she looks stunning.
37. Sofia Carson
via: Getty ImagesThis Francesco Scognamiglio reflective dress is just editorial enough, while still looking uber-glam.
via: Getty ImagesIf this was a dress, it might be a little too dull - but the fact it's a catsuit totally elevates the look.
35. Lil Nas X
via: Getty ImagesThe epitome of "shouldn't work, but it does."
34. Ciara (again)
via: Getty ImagesOur only double appearance on the list has to go to this stunning oversized royal blue suit.
33. Selena Gomez
via: Getty ImagesThis chartreuse satin bandage dress does look great on her - though we do wish it fit just a little better.
32. Maya Hawke
via: Getty ImagesThis Dior gown is the perfect blend of gothic and princessy.
31. Katherine Langford
via: Getty ImagesThe star stepped outside the box in this Rodarte gown. We particularly love her bejeweled hairline.
30. Jenna Dewan
via: Getty ImagesPregnancy red carpet dressing done right.
via: Getty ImagesThis is honestly one of the most beautiful looks we've ever seen.
27. Shawn Mendes
via: Getty ImagesHe sure knows how to stop basics being boring.
26. Lauren Jauregui
via: Getty ImagesThis snakeskin ballgown is the perfect blend of high class and trash.
25. Jamie Lee Curtis
via: Getty ImagesSimple (and perhaps a tiny bit boring) but undeniably effective.
24. Camila Cabello
via: Getty ImagesA slightly predictable, but undeniably super pretty choice.
23. Meg Donnelly
via: Getty ImagesThe contrasting materials, beautiful tiers, and bejeweled gloves elevate this look.
22. Carrie Underwood
via: Getty ImagesPurple sequins fit for a country music queen - after scooping both Best Country Female Artist and Best Country Album.
21. Alyson Stoner
via: Getty ImagesProps to the Disney Channel star for thinking outside the box!
20. Kane Brown
via: Getty ImagesThe power suit is simple, but the subtle print adds a layer of interest.
19. Paula Abdul
via: Getty ImagesSure, we wouldn't wear this - but it's perfect for Paula Abdul's inner showgirl.
18. Constance Wu
via: Getty ImagesWe're absolutely obsessed with this adorable babydoll dress and space buns combo.
17. Pia Mia
via: Getty ImagesThe iridescent orange fabric appeals to our inner magpie.
16. Heidi Klum
via: Getty ImagesThe '60s negligee-dress wouldn't be out of a place in a Bond film.
15. Green Day
via: Getty ImagesYou can't go wrong with classic black - although carrying an acoustic guitar is kind of unacceptable. Loving the drawn-on mustache, though!
14. Angez Mo
via: Getty ImagesThese candy colors look good enough to eat.
13. Kelly Osborne
via: Getty ImagesThis simple black dress is elevated by her beautiful purple hairdo.
12. Nick Viall
via: Getty ImagesIt's a little bit corny - but we can't help but like this turquoise velvet blazer.
via: Getty ImagesHow does this man pull off such objectively ugly outfits?
10. Ella Mai
via: Getty ImagesThe long power braid makes it.
9. Misty Copeland
via: Getty ImagesYou wouldn't expect anything less than full glamour from this ballet star, right?
8. Dan Levy
via: Getty ImagesMatching his sneakers to his coat is a truly ingenious touch.
7. Megan Thee Stallion
via: Getty ImagesAlthough honestly, she could rock up in a paper bag and still make the list.
6. Patrick Starr
via: Getty ImagesLove him or hate him, you can't ever accuse Starr of not making the effort.
5. Kelsea Ballerini
via: Getty ImagesProving that suits don't have to just be for the boys.
4. Thomas Rhett
via: Getty ImagesThis faded floral print is pretty without being too over-the-top.
3. Julissa Bermudez
via: Getty ImagesBecause really, silver draped gowns with cut-out cleavages are what the AMAs are all about.
2. Patrick Schwarzenegger
via: Getty ImagesWe're loving this slightly cartoony take on the classic suit.
1. Taylor Swift
via: Getty ImagesThe spangly golden-green layered dress was the perfect look for the undisputed star of the night. And now let's take a look at the stars whose outfits didn't fare quite so well. Yikes.
10. Tyra Banks
via: Getty ImagesThis look manages to simultaneously be both boring and ugly - which is no mean feat!
9. Rich the Kid and Antonette Willis
via: Getty ImagesIt's hard to focus on their outfits when their tongues are quite so prominent a part of the look.
8. Billie Eilish
via: Getty ImagesWe don't get it. We really don't. Sorry!
7. Regina King
via: Getty ImagesThe dress is inoffensive, but the hair is, sadly, unforgivable.
via: Getty ImagesA rare look with absolutely no redeeming feature - from head to toe, this is just plain bad.
5. Big Freedia
via: Getty ImagesRemember when Coco Chanel said to take off one accessory before leaving the house?
4. Jameela Jamil
via: Getty ImagesOk, it's not bad. But it's certainly not good.
3. David Dobrik
via: Getty ImagesLooking every inch the little brother at a wedding in this awkward fit.
2. Shania Twain
via: Getty ImagesWhere do we begin, apart from to ask, what the hell is this?
1. Christina Aguilera
via: Getty ImagesProps to her for trying something different - but this stands out for all the wrong reasons. Fancy a trip down memory lane? We've also got a list of the best and worst dressed celebrities at the VMAs from back in August - with some equally stunning (and terrible) looks.
