Edgy was the vibe on the 2022 American Music Awards red carpet, staged at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 20. Both Dove Cameron and Tinashe arrived in similar Marc Jacobs looks early on in the evening, plucked from the designer’s fall/winter 2022 runway. The musicians both wore the same cropped white corset and completed their looks with black leather gloves, with Cameron, 26, opting for a denim cargo style skirt with a puffer tied around the waist, and Tinashe, 29, selecting a more tailored, low-slung design with a thin leather belt loop affixed to the waist band. While Cameron’s statement details included two long, thin braids; an exaggerated cat-eye; and gray, white, and black snake-effect nails that she flaunted with every pose, Tinashe showed off Jacobs’s large, logofied sunglasses and knotted space buns, a look popularized in the ’90s that is now seeing a significant resurgence.
Becky G’s black velvet LBD might have come with a satin train and matching bow that sat atop her shoulder, but the elegance was contrasted by tough patent platforms, sharply-drawn lip and eyeliner, and a textured messy bun. From Sabrina Carpenter’s sequin fringe two-piece set to Karrueche’s sculptural Christian Siriano gown with a plunging neckline and vampy wings that wrapped around her neck and extended behind her, it seems all the stars got the memo to dress with undeniable fearlessness and bold personality.
The show, hosted by Wayne Brady, includes performances from Anitta, Charlie Puth, Carrie Underwood, and Cameron, so we will certainly get to see notable costume changes throughout the event.
Ahead, don’t miss a single red carpet arrival at the 2022 AMAs.
