Red Carpet Roundup: The 2016 AMAs

Did you watch the AMAs Sunday night? AMA, of course, stands for American Music Awards, and the 2016 award ceremony was the usual bash filled with glitz, glamour, often outrageous hosts and presenters, and over-the-top musical performances. And, naturally, fab red carpet looks too.

You can read all about the winners and relive some of the highlights on the official AMA website, but, if you’re like a lot of people, it’s all about the dresses. Or the suits. And, obviously, we’re also in it for the hair and the makeup.

So. Where to find the best roundup of the best looks from Sunday night’s show? We’ve got you covered, friends!

As usual, we’ll start with InStyle, which is kind of our go-to site when it comes to things like this. Their galleries are always on point, and this one is no exception! Check out their Best Red Carpet Looks for classic and “out there” outfits from your fave celebrities.

PopSugar also has a pretty killer roundup, complete with links for more about the outfit, jewelry, and accessories. You know, in case your budget allows it, and you want to recreate these looks. Because why not! We can dream, can’t we?!?

Glamour rounds up some hair looks with their American Music Awards 2016: Butt-Length Hair at the AMAs Red Carpet Is the Trend No One Saw Coming and they make a really good case for this with an entire gallery devoted to super long hair! Will this trend have staying power into 2017, or was it just a one-off for the awards ceremony? We will definitely have to keep an eye on this one!

Hollywood Life gives us their take on the best beauty looks of the night, featuring some stunning hair and ultra-glamorous makeup.

And, finally, Refinery29 gives us their take with The AMAs Beauty Looks We Would Actually Wear IRL. Some nice, simple, yet striking makeup looks here, that won’t get you funny looks on the bus, is what we’re saying.

Now, after checking out these galleries do you have a favourite? A couple of favourites? We at the blog would like to make the case for 1) Selena Gomez and 2) Janelle Monae. Both these women channelled some serious old-school glamour but gave it a modern feel, and crushed that red carpet with enviable poise and grace. And, of course, you are free to disagree with our choices – let us know in the comments what looks you absolutely loved!
