The AMAs 2020 Red Carpet: Celebs Were Literally Shining & We Loved It

It was a shimmery affair!

After months of making do with virtual award shows and red carpets, the American Music Awards 2020 were kicked off live from the Microsoft Theater in LA.

The AMAs 2020 red carpet was quite different from what we’re used to, but one thing that remained the same was celebs dropping impressive looks for us to enjoy. From Jennifer Lopez to Cara Delevingne to Dua Lipa, most attendees wore outfits that had a touch of sparkle and we’re here for it.

Here’s what our favourite celebs wore to the AMAs red carpet:

Jennifer Lopez

JLo’s look from the AMAs 2020 was a universal favourite. The PaTi singer wore a silver cowl neck top with a matching slit skirt and high heels. Save for the smokey-eyes, she kept her make-up minimal and wore a neutral lip gloss.

The real winner in Jennifer Lopez’s look, however, was her hairstyle. The 51-year-old rocked a ‘wet’ hair look that not only accentuated her face but also changed her look for the better.

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne graced the AMAs 2020 red carpet in a glittery two-piece pantsuit. She wore a skin-coloured corset under the suit and completed the look with classic black stilettos. The “sparkly queen”, as the model called herself, experimented with colours for her make up – wearing pink and purple eye shadows and a coral lip shade. Not to forget the holographic nail colour!

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa opted for a strappy white mini dress which featured multi-coloured rhinestone detailing and a pink frill on its hem. The singer went low on accessories and wore a small choker and a bracelet, but went all out with her eye make-up, putting blue eye shadow. To complete her look, Lipa wore a stunning pair of silver platform heels.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton pulled out all the stops for her red carpet look for the AMAs 2020 red carpet. The star wore a full-sleeved, sequinned, metallic mini-dress. She tied her hair in a slick ponytail with her bangs combed to one side. Hilton accessorized her ensemble with diamond jewelry.

Taraji P. Henson

The host for the evening, Taraji P. Henson, arrived in style. The Empire star wore a gorgeous long-sleeved, beaded dress. She styled this with a rhinestone turban which was definitely a good choice.

Being the host, Taraji had to slip in and out of several outfits during the ceremony. While she looked stunning in all of them, one particular outfit that caught the eye was her puff-sleeved shimmer gown. So exquisite!

Bebe Rexha

Seriously though, was ‘anything that shines’ a theme for the AMAs 2020 that we didn’t know of? It seems like it, given how most celebs either wore something metallic or shimmery.

Singer Bebe Rexha wore a cut-out silver gown for the red carpet and completed her look with a stack of matching jewelry. And her red highlights added just the pop of colour that was needed.
