#StyleSpecial: Danai Gurira, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora & More at the 2014 AMAs!

The stars were out to shine on Sunday for the 2014 American Music Awards, which went down at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. And, from all black ensembles and thigh-high slits to suits and boldly-hued ensembles, celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Jhene Aiko, Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya Coleman and Jordin Sparks brought their A-game, while others have left us gobsmacked as we struggle to understand what they were wearing…

Here’s the most memorable looks from the AMAs night – see if your favourite was on our style radar;

Raptress, Nicki Minaj raptress kept it simple yet quite sexy in a black sheer cut-out Alexander Wang pleated mini-dress paired with black Manolo Blahnik pointed toe pumps
First up and leading a pack of all-black everything-wearer, raptress, Nicki Minaj kept her look simple, girly yet rather sexy in a black sheer and cut-out number by Alexander Wang, which was pleated at the skirt and paired with black Manolo Blahnik pointed pumps. We at SPICE love the high neck and those printed patches on the dress, with the overall look complimented by Nicki’s new, nearly ‘nude’ makeup, save for a pretty pink pout.

Tracee
Also donning the high neck look, Tracee Ellis Rose covered up in a sleek, black turtleneck dress, paired with sheer Christian Louboutins pumps. How elegant does the star look?! We just love this ensemble…

Her back was flawless
…Especially its peek-a-boo back feature, leaving Tracee looking (as usual) super flawless!

Selena
Continuing the night’s trend of head-to-toe black, Selena Gomez looked stunning in a Giorgio Armani Prive silk jersey, long-sleeved gown with a plunging back and dramatic front slit. Complimented by Neil Lane jewellery, the singer looked perfect and very demure for her young age. Go Selena!

Orange is the New Black' Uzo Azuba kept it simple and chic as always in a black Vivenne Westwood dress, black Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, accessorized with a Lee Savage clutch.
Orange is the New Black star, Uzo Azuba kept her look simple and chic as always, rocking a black Vivenne Westwood dress, black Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, accessorised with a Lee Savage clutch. We love the double strap on her heels, we love the swept back hair and we especially loved Uzo’s finishing touch – her smile. #Hot!

Mary J. Blige showed off her toned arms and sparkled in an embellished black Mark Zunino Haute Couture gown. Black was a popular color for the night!
And Mary J. Blige didn’t disappoint either, showing off her toned arms and figure, and sparkling in an embellished black Mark Zunino Haute Couture gown. Black was a popular colour for the night, but Mary just went and owned it!

Star Jones all black look was unexplainable and not age appropriate
Star Jones was also spied in the minimal palette, but her all black look was pretty unexplainable style-wise and not all that age appropriate, either. Sorry Ms Jones!

And Bleona Qereti stepped out with just panties and fishnet dress
Bleona Qereti decided to step out in just panties, some pasties and fishnet dress, which looked like a gothic nod to Rihanna’s infamous CFDA ensemble of this year, but we don’t expect to have top designers penning an open letter of praise for this look, like Tom Ford did recently for Rih’s.

Khloe stunned in a Versus side cut out dress. Although we sished she saved that birthday dress for the AMAs.
Bringing it back to beautiful outfits thought, Khloe Kardashian stunned in a Versus Versace side cut-out dress, looking gorgeous as ever with her dip dyed hair.

And Charlie XCX wowed on the red carpet in old-school glamour take on all black wearing, with her Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder, cleavage-baring black gown, Dionia Orcini rings, dramatic kohl-rimmed eyes and red pout. The final effect was a sumptuous, sultry look.

Still on a;; black ensembles, Fergie brought life as she showed lots of legs in a black Halston gown and Versus triple clasp sandals.
Still on all black everything but moving onto the other popular feature of the night, the thigh high split, singer Fergie brought life to the red carpe as she showed a lot of leg in her chic Halston gown and Versus Versace triple clasp sandals. Yummy mummy or what!

Heidi Klum shimmered in a black and pink beaded Versace Spring 2015 dress.
Following suit but adding pretty pastel touches, model Heidi Klum shimmered in a black and pink beaded Versace Spring’15 dress and matching, skyscraper heels to look the picture of perfection.

Kendall Jenner was simply sexy and looked every bit the model in a Yigal Azrouël Spring 2014 silk organza eyelet patchwork gown
Kendall Jenner was simply sexy on the carpet, looking every bit the model in her Yigal Azrouël Spring’14 silk organza, eyelet gown. If it seems like we’ve been seeing a lot of Ms Jenner this year, this dress showed us the rest of her.

Kendall’s sister, Kylie Jenner also flashed some skin in an Alexandre Vauthier Spring’14 dress, scoring major fashion points for her unique, oxblood-hued satin gown, which featured both a plunging neckline and hip-high slit. Paired with Tamara Mellon pumps and a fringed Alexander McQueen shoulder bag, this look screamed the star’s style – edgy, young and fun with a side of expensive taste.

Slits still trending, Giuliana Rancic rocked a navy blue, white, and black Alex Perry Dress and Christian Louboutin Impera pumps.
Slits still trending, Giuliana Rancic rocked a navy blue, white and black Alex Perry dress with Christian Louboutin “Impera” pumps. We love the patch of sequins and we love the criss-cross heels – it’s the details of the look that really caught our attention.

Jordin Sparks sparkled in a halter neck Halston Fall 2014 dress
Jordin Sparks sparkled in her halter neck Halston Fall’14 dress, which also featured the thigh high slit. The cut, the gold foil, the thinly-strapped shoes… We really don’t know what we like the most but we can tell you we like this ensemble on the singer – a lot!

Nigerian songtress, Dencia was a Nicki Minaj look alike once more as she stepped out for the AMAs
Nigerian songtress, Dencia was a Nicki Minaj look alike once more as she stepped out for the AMAs. She has a body to die for but that ensemble? We’d not be caught dead in it… Sorry Dencia!

Kate Beckinsale slinked in a Kaufmanfranco gown with a sexy plunge and backless and side cutouts. A serpenti necklace in white gold with 2 pear shaped diamonds and pavé from Bulgari’s High Jewelry Collection only amplified the sultry nature of the dress, which fit her like a glove. Additional styling included a small Lee Savage ‘Stack’ clutch, alongside a smoky eye and another bouffant-less incarnation of her signature high ponytail.
Kate Beckinsale slinked along the red carpet in a Kaufman Franco gown with a sexy plunging neck, which was also backless and baring side cutouts. Alongside a smoky eye and a simple ponytail, this look really caught the our attention. Or maybe it was the well-placed, glittering necklace hanging above the dress’ deep V?

Gigi
Gigi Handid worked a cool Prabal Gurung suit she paired with a lacey bra top, bringing tomboy-sexy vibes to the night…

Jessie J stepped out with her boyfriend in their first official public appearance as a couple wearing all white.

Wyclef Jean wa a bit of a rocker in a Diesel Black Gold Fall 2014 black leather badge embellished moto jacket, black leather pants, and a white cotton t-shirt
Onto more suits, rapper Wyclef Jean turned up a bit of a rocker in his Diesel Black Gold Fall’14 embellished moto jacket, black leather pants and a white cotton t-shirt. Hardly a suit, but for the AMAs this two-piece was pretty palatable.

And Neyo looked dapper as always!
Neyo on the other hand looked dapper as always, turning up in a navy suit with matching hat and a pair of classic-rimmed glasses. #SoSuave.

Garcelle Beauvais was a breath of fresh air in a coral Michael Costello gown, topped off with her sexy xurly locks.
The real stars of the night though were those who chose colour. Garcelle Beauvais
was a breath of fresh air in a bold coral Michael Costello gown, topped off with her sexy curly locks and metallic heels. Stunning, no?

We are not really sure if Rosci #Diaz didn't get the memo or she fotgot the pose in prints like she was heading for an evening with friends.
And Rosci Diaz looked great in her printed look, with the blue pattern of her dress being the highlight. Only criticism is that this did look a little relaxed for the AMAs, with the ensemble passable as something to wear to dinner with friends… Even with the cutouts and colour, something was missing…

Keeping it knee length also, Jennifer Lopez made us jealous again bring on a sexy vibe a soft pink bandage cutout Reem Acra Spring 15 dress complete with Christian Louboutin heels
But Jennifer Lopez made sure we knew this was a major red carpet, leaving us jealous of her figure yet again to wear a sexy, soft pink bandage Reem Acra Spring/Summer’15 dress, completed with Christian Louboutin heels. #Wowzers or what!?

Rita Ora was a vision in yellow as she took to the red carpet at the 2014 American Music Awards, hosted on Sunday (November 23) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California. The songstress was luscious in a bright lemon-hued Zac Posen strapless dress, complete with a sweeping train, which had all the drama we would expect from both the designer and Rita. Not one to not push the boundaries, she matched the structural glamour of the gown with an equally architectural top-knot ’do and bold makeup strokes that included feathery lashes and yellow eye shadow. I also love that she continued to skip the red lip in favour of a nude-pink gloss. A vintage Swarovski clutch completed the look.
Rita Ora pulled out one of the best looks of the night, arriving as a vision in bright lemon with her Zac Posen strapless dress, which featured a sweeping train. The colour was completely unexpected but the drama brought by the train was typical of the star who’s known for her edgier, out-there style.

Zendaya Coleman did it a new way in a Georgine gold ensemble
Zendaya Coleman rocked the red carpet in a whole new way, wearing a bold ‘fro of curls with a Georgine gold ensemble, and what looks to be a bikini top. We’re not sure if we love the look upon close inspection, but in terms of head-turners? Yes, Zendaya nailed it.

The Walking Dead star, Zimbabwean actress Danai Gurira was vibrant in a Naeem Khan Resort 2015 gown.
And lastly, on our style radar stepped The Walking Dead star, Zimbabwean actress Danai Gurira, who was vibrant and vivid in her Naeem Khan Resort’15 gown. The print, the shade and the sheen of the fabric looked just amazing on her skin and those gold strappy heels? Just beautiful.
