12/12/2017 18:19 GMT

The stars were out in force on the red carpet for the 2014 American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in LA. And, as usual, there were some amazing fashion moments, and some, erm, head-scratching style statements. So, who wore it best?

Taylor Swift was leading the fashion pack in a head-turning emerald cutout gown, which perfectly walked the line between sophisticated and sexy. She also picked up the night's top award: the first-ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence.

The theme for the night was, in fact, mostly flesh-flashing, on different levels.

Kate Beckinsale managed to get it spot-on in a beautiful white plunging Kaufmanfranco frock with a Bulgari serpent necklace. And Kendall Jenner's beautiful Yigal Azrouel Spring 2014 sheer monochrome dress may have had a split that was bordering on indecent, but she still managed to pull it off.

One star who bucked the trend - and looked incredible - was Brit Rita Ora. She showed everybody how to do statement dressing without showing off what your mamma gave you in a bright and beautiful Zac Posen dress with a big train.

Back to the skin-show: Jennifer Lopez's nude Reem Acra dress might have pushed the theme a little far, while Heidi Klum's pinks-accented Versace Spring 2015 top and skirt and colourful chunky heels were definitely ill-judged.

One of the biggest question marks of the night though? Diana Ross' giant pompom-esque coat. No. And no.
