TORONTO — There was a parade of fashion in Los Angeles on Sunday night as the stars came out for the 2014 American Music Awards.

The AMAs were all about the LBD — little black dress — including Dianna Agron in a Marchesa Fall 2014 off-the-shoulder dress; Lucy Hale in a Vera Wang Spring 2015 black mini-dress with fringed hemline; and Uzo Aduba in Vivienne Westwood.Versus Versace Spring 2015; and Khloe Kardashian in Versus Versace Spring 2015.

Selena Gomez wore a black backless Armani Privé dress (and, apparently, no bra). Charlie XCX looked “Fancy” in a Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder frock. Fergie chose Halston Heritage with Loree Rodkin bondage rings and Anthony Vacarello x Versus shoes.

There were some splashes of colour, though. Actress Elizabeth Banks wore Peter Pilotto; Rita Ora channeled Big Bird in a strapless Zac Posen; and Julianne Hough picked a coral Zuhair Murad Resort 2015 gown.

Taylor Swift didn’t walk the red carpet but appeared in the press room wearing a floor-length green Michael Kors.

The men varied from stylish (Nick Jonas smoldered in a double-breasted Armani suit) to decidedly casual (Brantley Gilbert evidently wanted people to see him “Just As I Am”).

The night’s fashion loser was easily Bleona Qereti, who showed up looking like a burlesque dancer from Medieval Times. Her mesh outfit, pasties and metallic thong had onlookers asking two questions: “What the…?” and “Who’s Bleona Quereti?”
