The 30 most memorable looks from the 2013 American Music Awards

30 most memorable looks from the 2013 American Music Awards - Rihanna accepts the AMA Icon Award onstage during the 2013 American Music Awards
Last night’s American Music Awards were full of surprises, like when Lady Gaga rode in on a manmade horse and later had a Marilyn Monroe moment with R. Kelly as JFK in a replica of the Oval Office. And when host Pitbull performed with Ke$ha on a Latin hoedown song. Or when Rihanna purposely left her wrap bobby-pinned up (called a Dominican ‘doobie’) while accepting the first-ever Icon Award. The celebrity looks were what was most memorable, like Rihanna’s hair or Miley’s high-rise cat bikini. Check out our 30 picks of the most memorable red carpet and onstage looks from the 2013 AMAs:

Rihanna posed with her Icon Award dressed in a bra top and sheer lace maxi skirt from Spring 2013 Jean Paul Gaultier Couture. She accessorized with jewelry by Lynn Ban and Repossi and rocked an Alex Mika ear cuff, and kept her hair wrapped up the entire night!
