Best and worst dressed at the 2015 AMA Awards

Carrie Underwood Wows in a Cape at the AMAs

It was a big night for fashion at the 2015 American Music Awards!

Super sexy dresses with high hemlines and cutouts dominated the red carpet this year, but while some stars like Gigi Hadid nailed the trend, others were a major miss. Ellie Goulding\\'s black frock, which showed off her incredible physique bordered on the side of slightly tacky with a one-shoulder neckline and numerous cutouts across the front.

Slits and slashes were not the only hot trend of the evening. Glimmering, shimmering gowns sparkled at the AMAs with stunners like Carrie Underwood and Selena Gomez putting their best foot forward in gold and red dresses, respectively.

Best and worst dressed at the 2015 AMA Awards

BEST: Selena Gomez wowed in a gorgeous oxblood halter dress with a demure slit and pin-straight hair. Simple makeup and minimal accessories let the stunning frock speak for itself.

WORST: Kendall and Kylie have worn tons of designer dresses in their lifetimes in the public eye -- but the sisters missed the mark at the AMAs in disappointing black dresses. Kendall's cowlneck minidress left much to be desired, and her little sister's mess of a BDSM-inspired dress was just too much look.

BEST: Carrie Underwood stunned in a fabulous shimmery gown fit for a star. The singer looked flawless in the champagne hue and gauzy cape.

WORST: Demi Lovato looked outdated in a couch-like gown with an unflattering neckline. Dark lips, old-school pin curls and bulky black rings added to the borderline cheesy look.

BEST: Zendaya was a breath of fresh air in a pretty, pink lace mini with a Peter Pan collar. Rosy cheeks and lips completed the actress's unique ensemble.

WORST: Ellie Goulding looked more like she was joining the cast of "Jersey Shore" than attending the AMAs. Her one-shoulder, too-short minidress clashed with her gold and black booties, and her 'do lacked a touch of polish, too.

BEST: Gigi Hadid nabbed the spotlight in a ultra-sexy white two-piece with a lace-up bralette and thigh-high slit. A slick, cropped 'do completed the model's white-hot ensemble.

WORST: Julianne Hough was on the verge of wardrobe malfunction in a T-shirt gown that featured two slits up to ... there. Clunky platforms and tassled earrings also didn't fit the bill.

BEST: The One Direction boys looked dapper in varying suits. Liam rocked simple gray with a pink pocket square and skinny tie, Louis opted for a simple speckled suit with a crisp white shirt, Niall debuted adorable new specks, and Harry rocked an eye-catching floral Gucci creation.

WORST: Little Big Town looked less like a group and more like a mixed bag of misses in totally mismatched getups.

BEST: Tyga's classy getup came as a surprise -- and we're totally impressed by the chic blue suit and crisp white shirt.

WORST: It might be too late to say "sorry" for this unfortunate ensemble, Biebs. The singer may be riding his comeback, but we're definitely not beliebing in this too-casual, tasteless look.

WORST: We're not quite sure what Tove Lo was thinking when she stepped into this caged frock, especially paired with nude undergarments and knee-high suede boots.

WORST: Yikes! We're not sure if country singer Kelsea Ballerini meant to channel Elvis Presley, but she definitely succeeded in this flared white jumpsuit with statement belt.
