The Most Dramatic Looks of the 2017 American Music Awards

It seems that every award show, from the red carpet to the stage, is bound to feature a bevy of standout dramatic looks. This year, mother-daughter duo, Diana Ross and AMAs host Tracee Ellis Ross, took the cake.

All eyes were on the 73-year-old “Endless Love” singer as she arrived in strapless black dress with embellished cork-soled sandals and a feathery tulle headpiece.

Elsewhere, “Stranger Things” actor Caleb Caleb McLaughlin, who presented tonight, sported a paint-splattered ensemble, down to his sneakers.
