Last night, LA played host to the 2015 American Music Awards, otherwise known as yet another joyful excuse for celebrities to?outdo each other with their sartorial statements while we sit back and judge them. Do join us.

Though we’d have expected Taylor Swift to bring home each and every gong (well, three ain’t bad), it was pop quartet One Direction who scooped the most coveted Artist of The Year award.

Hosted by the one and only JLO, who, as far as we’re concerned, can do no wrong on the’red carpet, this celebratory night?featured performances from Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani and more. Lead by Celine Dion, the awards also took time out to pay tribute to the victims of the Paris attack, and other terrorist attacks around the world this year.

Below you’ll find the full winners’ list, but if it’s the outfits that really pique your interest, the gallery above includes a round up of the best, and, erm, most ‘interesting’ looks?from the 2015 AMAs.
