2018 American Music Awards: Our Favourite Red Carpet Looks & All The Winners

The 2018 American Music Awards was held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles a few days back and it opened with the first award show performance from Taylor Swift in three years. As the night went on, it was clear who the big winners were – Taylor Swift herself, as well as ex-Fifth Harmony band member Camila Cabello both won big by taking home four awards each. Just as the stars delighted in the grand evening’s celebrations, we got to marvel at their carefully thought out ensembles for the night, so here are some of our favourite looks!
