The 2016 American Music Awards are kicking off in L.A.’s Microsoft Theater this evening and we’re paying close attention to all of the head-turning looks on the red carpet.
It model Gigi Hadid made a statement-making entrance in a dramatic Roberto Cavalli off-the-shoulder lacy confection. She and Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharaoh are co-hosting the world’s biggest fan-voted award show, and judging by the parade of fashionable looks alone, we can tell it’s going to be a memorable night.
While Hadid isn’t a stranger to awards shows (she hosted the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards in Toronto earlier this year), this will be her first time taking on the AMAs. The 21-year-old stunner recently admitted to being “super nervous” for her emceeing duties. “But I think that I like when I’m nervous because it just makes me just obviously pay more attention and be like snappier about things,” she told Avant-gardeweddings. “I’m so excited,” she continued. “It’s so cool to be able to grow up as a fan of a show and in a million years I never would have thought … I didn’t even know that it was a possibility that I could be a host of the show.”
With what will surely be an evening full of striking outfit changes from the co-host and memorable performances from the likes of Lady Gaga, Sting, The Chainsmokers, Fifth Harmony, Bruno Mars, and more, we simply can’t wait to get the show on the road.
