With every passing year, the American Music Awards get bigger and better from the unforgettable performances to surprise guests. The 2019 ceremony was held in Los Angeles where the celebrities not only stepped up their game on the Microsoft Theater’s stage but also on the red carpet.
The red carpet looks were a fun mix of get-ups, including neon suits, classic gowns and eye-catching headpieces. From veterans like Billy Porter to newbies like Billie Eilish, everyone was serving. Here are the top 10 looks from the carpet!
- Billy Porter
Billy Porter stuns on every red carpet, and this year’s AMAs was no different! The Pose star instantaneously caught the world’s eyes with his all-white Thom Browne ensemble topped with an artistic headpiece. To add to the deeper details, Billy Porter tweeted, ‘I’m wearing hints of red, white and blue because I’m an American. And this is what we look like.’

- Lil Nas X
Lil Nas X is ascending not only in his music career but also in the fashion world. The hit star shined bright in his neon-green zoot suit by Christopher John Rogers. With the colour already being loud, the singer also rocked a zebra-patterned shirt and gloves.
Sticking to this year’s rebrand, Post Malone stayed true to his newfound music genre in his country look. He opted for a more subdued look, sporting a custom camel MCM suit with black leather detailing. Spitting the country look, Diplo also rocked a cowboy hat, pointed-toe boots, dark shades and a fistful of rings.

Halsey never stops experimenting with her red carpet looks and this look was quite the showstopper. The Without Me singer wore a floor-sweeping Marc Jacobs floral gown that revealed lilac, peach, light blue and pink colours as it flowed on the carpet. Her eye makeup stood out as it resembled a painting with its abstract pattern and her hair was done in a cool top knot.
- Kesha – Versace
Kesha made her grand return to the AMAs looking fresh out the shower with her wet-look wavy hair and minimal makeup that highlighted her cat-like eyes. The Singer rocked head-to-toe Versace: a robe, skin-tight boots and a hefty amount of matching gold jewellery.
The AMAs host, Ciara brought the most in the form of a bold look on the carpet. She rocked a bright, Balmain royal blue pantsuit with an oversized blazer and flared trousers. She stunned even with her accessories which included a bejewelled turquoise bra harness with matching earrings, nude-colored nails and flowing brunette waves.
