Another year at the American Music Awards have come and gone, and all we can say is, what a show!

On Tuesday night, the best of the best in the music world took over Los Angeles for the 2018 AMAs and star power could be seen everywhere you turned.

In addition to Taylor Swift earning three AMAs this year—bringing her total to 22 and breaking Whitney Houston's record for most AMAs won by a female artist—there were numerous performances that fans couldn't help but talk about.

That being said, it's the fashions of the night that we are still chatting about with our co-workers and friends and we have a feeling you are too.

There were so many stunning ensembles as some of our favorite stars hit the red carpet last night and we want to know which one you thought won style star for the evening. Sure, it's not a real award, but that doesn't mean you can't vote!

Everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Vanessa Hudgens brought their A-game when it came to fashion at this year's show and we are obsessed with all of their choices for the carpet.

In addition to Lopez's bold and bright pink gown by George Chakra, and Hudgens' soft pink silk Cushnie dress we also loved Khalid's bubblegum pink coat and pant combo this year. Clearly, pink was the color of the night and we are so on board with it.

If pink isn't your thing then perhaps you were freaking out when Carrie Underwood hit the carpet. She donned a velvet, black gown with gold embellishment that showed off her growing baby bump, which was so freaking cute.

Busy Philipps was another style star rocking sparkle bell-bottom pants and a black suit jacket by Michael Kors. It was like stepping back into the '70s and based on how fierce she looked we're all in on a trip back in time to this decade ASAP.

A few more fashionable singers at the event included Halsey, who wore a purple and black floral dress that was high-low and super flirty and fun. Post Malone made a massive statement with his ensemble, which was a bright blue suit that had snakes on the jacket and glitter boots to top it all off.

Of course you can't have an AMAs show without Swift, who channeled her inner disco queen in her mirror-ball inspired Balmain frock and matching knee-high boots. She wasn't to be out shined by Amber Heard however, who showed up in a black and gold shimmer gown by Ralph & Russo.

Dua Lipa rounds out our top 10 picks because her white gown was fit for both a red carpet and an elegant wedding, both of which we'd totally attend with the singer as our plus one!

Now that you've seen our top choices, check out all of the red carpet arrivals for the 2018 AMAs and vote for the look you loved most below!
