MANILA, Philippines – What’s black, white and red all over? It’s the star-studded carpet at the American Music Awards, which was held last Sunday November 23 at the Nokia Theater in LA.

Many artists played it safe this year and chose to arrive in monochromatic ensembles.

One of the standouts was Selena Gomez, who walked in wearing a sleek long-sleeved number.



Kendall Jenner kept her sheer game strong with a tastefully revealing shift.


One Direction was looking very classy despite the silly faces.



Pitbull busted out a bowtie to reprise his hosting duties.

“All About The Bass” singer Meghan Trainor added a playful lip clutch to her outfit.



Meanwhile, “Boom Clap” singer Charli XCX was the epitome of old Hollywood glam.



Pretty Little LiarsLucy Hale chose a short dress and rocked a dark lip.


Nick Jonas was looking very formal in a pinstriped suit.

No socks, no problem: British singer Sam Smith in his usual dark shirt-and-suit combo.

Canadian reggae band MAGIC! sauntered in wearing very casual get-ups.

Jessie J steered clear of the black party and came dressed in a crisp white suit.



Albanian singer Bleona left very little to the imagination.


However, Ariana Grande’s brother Frankie J beat out all the other girls for most talked-about look – he arrived with a painted-on shirt for the ceremonies (he added a gold jacket later on)!



Some artists also opted to bring out the sparkle in more colorful numbers:

Host Jordin Sparks stayed true to her name with a glittery one-piece.



Taylor Swift was one of the few guests in brights that night (pictured here with her BFF supermodel Karlie Kloss).


The Newsroom star Olivia Munn struck gold with her simple gown.



Rita Ora came in in a bright yellow gown by Zac Posen.
