The annual American Music Awards show is definitely one of the most unpredictable events of the year when it comes to fashion! While some opt for casual mini dresses and pantsuits, other opt for a full-blown ballgown and catch us by surprise. The variation is huge and the formality of attire definitely has a noticeable range, which makes it all the more interesting to pick out the best and worst dressed stars of the evening. Luckily, many musicians looked absolutely stunning last night and wowed us with their stylish and excellent choices of attire. Follow along for the seven of the best-dressed stars from last night AMA’s:

7. Chrissy Metz

This Is Us actress Chrissy Metz wore a relatively simple Kiyonna dress last night but the details of the dress are definitely what brought this look up a notch and added the glamour factor! The black gown reached to mid-calf and featured contrasting cobalt blue fringe along the shoulders and a wrap-style hemline. We love the asymmetrical shape of this dress and think the relatively minimal dress paired perfectly with her half-up hairstyle and dark smokey eyes.

6. Erin Lim

E! News correspondent Erin Lim stepped out baring some skin last night in a show-stopping little black dress! The mini-dress had a high leg slit that featured silver detailing on one side which showed the perfect amount of skin without being over the top. The asymmetrical neckline of this dress added visual interest and made the dress a little more formal and glamorous. She paired the look with adorable white heels with bow details that added a sweetness to the look and left her hair in beachy, messy waves.

5. Hailee Steinfield

Hailee Steinfeld definitely made jaws drop last night with her twist on the classic pantsuit look. She wore a pair of high-waisted tailored trousers matched with a double-breasted blazer. Although this look isn’t anything new when it comes to the red carpet, Steinfeld added her own style with the look by wearing an overcoat with dramatic shoulder detailing and a leather cutout bralette underneath. The look was the perfect balance of sophistication and sexiness!

4. Lea Michele

Lea Michele was a vision last night with her soft pink, floor-length gown! The blush-colored dress featured a corset style bodice and a flowing pleated skirt that added a whimsical and romantic vibe to the structured top. The delicate halter top neckline was unexpected but added a nice touch of something extra. This pale color dress really showed of Michele’s luminous complexion and even more so as she sleeked her hair back behind her ears to allow her glowing skin to shine!

3. Jessie James Decker

Jessie James Decker has proven she is the queen of mastering maternity fashion with her latest red carpet appearances! The star looked happier than ever and had a serious pregnancy glow when she stepped out on the red carpet in a mauve off-the-shoulder number. The dress featured flattering stitched lines trailing vertically gown the dress which really added extra shape to her figure! The color was the perfect match for Decker’s sun-kissed hair and skin and she paired the look with sparkly strappy sandals which added a huge glam factor to her look.

2. Jenna Dewan Tatum

Jenna Dewan Tatum stunned in a sparkly J-Lo reminiscent gown last night on the AMA red carpet! The dress featured sheer material embellished with swirling sparkles and glitter covering the entire dress. The gorgeous gown featured a super deep V neckline and a flattering leg slit that was revealing without being too much. She left her raven-colored locks to fall in beachy waves and added a pair of glittering shoes to match with the embellishment on the dress.

1. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez has definitely made quite a few headlines for herself recently after she was spotted out with ex Justin Bieber, which made her appearance at the AMA’s all the more anticipated! The star lived up to our expectations and made a huge bang last night when she stepped out with freshly dyed blonde tresses, which was quite the stark contrast to her previously chocolate brown locks! She wore a moto-inspired leather dress that was sassy and sophisticated and made her look like a total bombshell.
