All The Best and Worst Dressed Celebrities From The AMAs | 22 Words

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.

Looking very saintly in a floor-length white cape by Thom Browne and an incredible headdress by Stephen Jones Millinery.

39. Lizzo

She never fails to look incredible, and this adorable Valentino number is no exception.

38. Dua Lipa

This pink Miu Miu gown is a little basic, but there's no denying she looks stunning.

37. Sofia Carson

This Francesco Scognamiglio reflective dress is just editorial enough, while still looking uber-glam.

36. Ciara

If 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

The epitome of "shouldn't work, but it does."

34. Ciara (again)

Our only double appearance on the list has to go to this stunning oversized royal blue suit.

33. Selena Gomez

This chartreuse satin bandage dress does look great on her - though we do wish it fit just a little better.

32. Maya Hawke

This Dior gown is the perfect blend of gothic and princessy.

31. Katherine Langford

The star stepped outside the box in this Rodarte gown. We particularly love her bejeweled hairline.

30. Jenna Dewan

Pregnancy red carpet dressing done right.

29. Halsey

This is honestly one of the most beautiful looks we've ever seen.

28. Diplo

via: Getty Images

You've got to respect a man who knows his personal style.

27. Shawn Mendes

via: Getty Images

He sure knows how to stop basics being boring.

26. Lauren Jauregui

via: Getty Images

This snakeskin ballgown is the perfect blend of high class and trash.

25. Jamie Lee Curtis

via: Getty Images

Simple (and perhaps a tiny bit boring) but undeniably effective.

24. Camila Cabello

via: Getty Images

A slightly predictable, but undeniably super pretty choice.

23. Meg Donnelly

via: Getty Images

The contrasting materials, beautiful tiers, and bejeweled gloves elevate this look.

22. Carrie Underwood

via: Getty Images

Purple sequins fit for a country music queen - after scooping both Best Country Female Artist and Best Country Album.

21. Alyson Stoner

via: Getty Images

Props to the Disney Channel star for thinking outside the box!

20. Kane Brown

via: Getty Images

The power suit is simple, but the subtle print adds a layer of interest.

19. Paula Abdul

via: Getty Images

Sure, we wouldn't wear this - but it's perfect for Paula Abdul's inner showgirl.

18. Constance Wu

via: Getty Images

We're absolutely obsessed with this adorable babydoll dress and space buns combo.

17. Pia Mia

via: Getty Images

The iridescent orange fabric appeals to our inner magpie.

16. Heidi Klum

via: Getty Images

The '60s negligee-dress wouldn't be out of a place in a Bond film.

15. Green Day

via: Getty Images

You 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 Images

These candy colors look good enough to eat.

13. Kelly Osborne

via: Getty Images

This simple black dress is elevated by her beautiful purple hairdo.

12. Nick Viall

via: Getty Images

It's a little bit corny - but we can't help but like this turquoise velvet blazer.

11.Post Malone

via: Getty Images

How does this man pull off such objectively ugly outfits?

10. Ella Mai

via: Getty Images

The long power braid makes it.

9. Misty Copeland

via: Getty Images

You wouldn't expect anything less than full glamour from this ballet star, right?

8. Dan Levy

via: Getty Images

Matching his sneakers to his coat is a truly ingenious touch.

7. Megan Thee Stallion

via: Getty Images

Although honestly, she could rock up in a paper bag and still make the list.

6. Patrick Starr

via: Getty Images

Love him or hate him, you can't ever accuse Starr of not making the effort.

5. Kelsea Ballerini

via: Getty Images

Proving that suits don't have to just be for the boys.

4. Thomas Rhett

via: Getty Images

This faded floral print is pretty without being too over-the-top.

3. Julissa Bermudez

via: Getty Images

Because really, silver draped gowns with cut-out cleavages are what the AMAs are all about.

2. Patrick Schwarzenegger

via: Getty Images

We're loving this slightly cartoony take on the classic suit.

1. Taylor Swift

via: Getty Images

The 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 Images

This look manages to simultaneously be both boring and ugly - which is no mean feat!

9. Rich the Kid and Antonette Willis

via: Getty Images

It's hard to focus on their outfits when their tongues are quite so prominent a part of the look.

8. Billie Eilish

via: Getty Images

We don't get it. We really don't. Sorry!

7. Regina King

via: Getty Images

The dress is inoffensive, but the hair is, sadly, unforgivable.

6. Ke$ha

via: Getty Images

A rare look with absolutely no redeeming feature - from head to toe, this is just plain bad. 

5. Big Freedia

via: Getty Images

Remember when Coco Chanel said to take off one accessory before leaving the house?

4. Jameela Jamil

via: Getty Images

Ok, it's not bad. But it's certainly not good.

3. David Dobrik

via: Getty Images

Looking every inch the little brother at a wedding in this awkward fit.

2. Shania Twain

via: Getty Images

Where do we begin, apart from to ask, what the hell is this?

1. Christina Aguilera

via: Getty Images

Props 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.
