Last night, dozens of celebs hit the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the AMAs and, just as a heads up, there were some very interesting wardrobe choices. Of course there were also some fabulous ones — Janelle Monae we’re looking at you — and equally adorable moments, like Ciara showing off her baby bump.

Check out this list of stars who tore up the AMA red carpet — for better or worse.
