There’s no denying that the AMAs are about music, right? That’s true. But there’s also no way we can deny the role fashion plays in entertainment. The ladies and gents showed up for what’s sure to usher in a red carpet season of moments that made you go yassss and times that made you go hmmm.

Last night’s festivities certainly didn’t disappoint. From accounts that Selena Gomez had a panic attack before her performance to ridiculous reports that Pink cringed during Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute, the AMAs were full of did-you-see-that moments.

But taking it back to the red carpet, we noticed that the ladies embraced the nude look. This included sheer panels, mesh, and flesh-toned garments. Here are our top picks, which range from sultry to classic.

Demi looked confident AF in her Ester Abner gown. Sorry, not sorry.

2Jenna Dewan Tatum

We don’t know what to love more about her Julien Macdonald dress: the plunging neckline, high slit, or train.

Her tats may make her a badass, but Kehlani showed off her sultry side in a totally sheer, embellished Amen dress.

If you got it, flaunt it…right? That’s what Bebe did in her August Getty mesh gown with Swarovski crystals.

5Hayley Stommel

She may be the wife of Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, but Hayley and her sheer dress is the headliner.

6Violetta Komyshan

Ansel Elgort was on her arm for the night, but we’re fawning over Violetta’s sequin embellished frock.

7Rachel Platten

Okay, this is a jumpsuit, not a dress, but how can we not mention Rachel’s sheer, beaded black jumpsuit by Thai Nguyen?
