Launch Slideshow

With 17 performances and the entertainment industry's biggest heavy hitters, the 40th annual American Music Awards showcased plenty of star power on both the stage and the red carpet.

A hat trick of metallic minis, Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum and Stacy Keibler, all showcased their perfect pins in short, sparkly designs by Zuhair Murad, Alexandre Vauthier and Collette Dinnigan.

Carrie Underwood opted for an electric purple Abed Mahfouz gown, Gwen Stefani flaunted her signature punk-chic flair in Balmain, and Ginnifer Goodwin went demure and delicate in light pink floral Oscar de la Renta.
