American Music Awards 2016: The best and worst dressed Carlee Lewis-Staff Writer

The AMAs were a mix of a variety of different styles and fashion tastes. The stars took the runway and some made jaws drop for the better and the worse. Some for the better, and some for the worse. Here is a list of the best and the worst dressed of the night.

Best #1: Selena Gomez- actress and singer, winner of “Favorite pop/ rock female artist”

Solid red ball gown, Prada, and accented beautifully with diamond earrings.

Best #2: Teyana Taylor- Actress from “Madea’s Big Happy Family”

Skin tight sheer black lace gown, topped off with a diamond choker, and an absolutely beautiful detail in every inch of the entire dress.

Best #3: Shawn Mendes- Singer, nominee for “New artist of the year”

Mendes wore a Plain shirt under a leather jacket, skinny jeans and boots. It was simple, classy, and beautiful.

Best #4: Hailee Steinfeld- actress and singer

Steinfeld wore a bedazzled turquoise romper, and a matching belt that brings the piece together.

Best #5: Fifth Harmony- singing group

The girls coordinated in black gowns with different cut outs of the dresses to perfectly compliment different body shapes. All wore matching black heels to pull the look together.

Best #6: The Chainsmokers- singing group

Alex Paul wore a maroon suit with a black bedazzled shirt and a matching black fedora. Andrew Taggart wore a suit with a white and black printed shirt underneath the suit top which had a cute flower as an accent.

Here is a list of some people that made jaws drop in a negative way.

Worst #1: Tinashe- singer

Tinashe wore an almost-bathing suit- looking base, detailed with a white polka dotted throw, a bold black belt that overall makes this look like a peacock suit rather than a red carpet dress.

Worst #2: Z LaLa- singer

This dress was a very revealing animal printed dress. She wore long solid black boots. Overall, this outfit was very busy and had too much going on.

Worst #3: Bebe Rexha- singer

Rexha wore a very revealing animal printed dress with long solid black boots. This outfit was very busy and had too much going on.

Worst #4: Olivia Munn- actress

The floral printed dress was very tiny. If Munn had sat down or done anything other than walk, she would have been exposed.

Worst #5: Skylar Grey- singer

The overall outfit was a white tank top, white baggy pants, and a white throw. She was wearing too much white and everything was too big on her.

Worst #6: Ariana Grande- actress and singer, winner of “Artist of the year”

Grande wore white slacks and a black lace bustier. It was a total snooze fest, and there's nothing to this outfit.It’s very plain and boring.

All in all, the AMA’s fashion was pretty great and if not, very entertaining. Let’s all look forward to next year’s fashion!
