The biggest stars in music took over Los Angeles last night for the annual American Music Awards. From Miley Cyrus’s tongue-wagging kitty to Lady Gaga’s red carpet arrival on a white two-manned faux horse, the show was nothing short of spectacular.

On the red carpet, Miley Cyrus (sans bleached eyebrows) was surprisingly modest in a white Versus white pantsuit with black Saint Laurent pumps. Once inside though, it didn’t take long for the singer to return to her signature rebellious ways when she rocked a cat print crop top and high-waisted bikini bottom by Brit designer Markus Lupfer during her performance. In other attention grabbing sartorial choices, Lady Gaga, the newly appointed face of Versace, wore a lavender dress from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection. In eerily brilliant branding, she appeared the doppelganger of Donatella herself.

The year’s top honours went to Rihanna, who was awarded the Icon Award. The Bajan singer rocked a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2013 Couture two-piece which featured a sexy bustier top and lace-y full skirt. On the much shorter end of the spectrum, Taylor Swift, who took away four awards including Artist of the Year, was stunning in a gold Julien Macdonald mini-dress that was paired with metallic Jimmy Choo sandals and a nude lip.

The awards night truly fed our need for red carpet surprises, controversies (ahem, Katy Perry’s Japanese-inspired performance), a weeks worth of cat GIFs and a roundup of the best dressed.
