Last night’s American Music Awards sort of made us miss award shows. Taylor Swift performed “Blank Space” for the first time (prompting countless sofa sing-alongs), Selena Gomez crooned a ballad that was clearly directed at ex-beau Justin Bieber, and Jennifer Lopez showed up looking better than pretty much everyone half her age.
It was the right amount of tabloid fodder and celebrity eye candy to make us actually excited for the Golden Globes — until, of course, the SAG Awards roll around, and we’re all tired of seeing Jennifer Lawrence trip and fall for the millionth time.
The beauty on the red carpet, we should note, was also pretty excellent. There was a T. Swift sans red lips, a fresh-faced Kendall Jenner, and the biggest, baddest hair ever on newcomer Zendaya — not to mention Lorde's lipstick smear heard 'round the world. It was a little bit '90s mixed with all-out glamour. Click through to see who made our list for the favorites of the evening.
