Which frocks rocked the red carpet at the American Music Awards? Here’s Lovetripper’s picks for the evening’s most glam garments:

2) Tweeting to her fans before the broadcast, Paula Abdul confessed: “I am practically laying down in the Limo cause the dress I am wearing…I have been poured into!! No Joke!! Not Fun!! Fashion HURTS!!” Beauty may be pain, but the discomfort is worth it when the end result looks like this.

3) A few hours before joining Jay-Z on stage for a performance of “Empire State of Mind,” Alicia Keys posed for photographers in an Armani Prive cobalt creation that matched the baby blues of the crooner who made “New York, New York” his signature tune, Frank Sinatra:

Walking onstage in a pair of Rock & Republic sandals, the sparkle of the Talbot Runhof mini that Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez wore made her co-presentation of the best soul/R&B male award a magical moment.
