Last night saw the return of the American Music Awards in Los Angeles. Attracting some of music’s hottest names, actors and reality stars, the red carpet was brimming with unforgettable red carpet dresses. With the big trends this year being thigh grazing slits and shimmering metallics, we round up some of the best looks from the night.

Jennifer Lopez

The most attention-grabbing look of the night goes to The Booty singer, Jennifer Lopez. While others such as Selena Gomez noticeably covered up, Jen proved age is just a number as she showed off her impressive abs in a revealing cut-out blush coloured dress by Reem Acra. As they say – if you’ve got it, flaunt it.

Kate Beckinsale

British bombshell, Kate Beckinsale, looked white hot in a plunging Kaufmanfranco gown, finishing the look with a statement diamond serpent necklace by Bulgari. Just wow.

Kendall Jenner

Taking a leaf out of big sister Kim’s book, the new face of Estee Lauder, Kendal Jenner, didn’t shy away from a revealing red carpet number. She showed off her long legs in a Yigal Azrouël dress which featured a large front slit revealing her black briefs.
