It’s no secret that 2020 has been filled with both challenges and inconceivable changes that have impacted every facet of our lives—including awards show season. No one could have predicted that we’d see the 2020 Met Gala be postponed or that last year’s American Music Awards would be very different from this year. Alas, here we are. And despite this year’s awards show’s being limited to fewer attendees, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to celebrate. With artists like Meg Thee Stallion securing five nominations and performances from Jennifer Lopez, Dua Lupa, Billie Ellish, and Doja Cat, this year’s awards ceremony is a reminder that art can carry us through. Even amidst a pandemic, we can rise above to create music, find joy, and serve a full look. But you don’t have to take my word for it; ahead, you’ll see a few of the best-dressed artists from 2020’s American Music Awards Red Carpet.
