While the boys (1D and Bieber) stole the show and awards at last night’s American Music Awards, we’ll gracefully glee that the women were the stars on the red carpet. Dazzling sheaths, daring cutouts, and a show of some inner wear (to be polite), the ladies definitely left us with some style-envy.

From Gigi’s white number to Selena’s sparkly pencil dress, the styles on display were anything short of boring and definitely deserve a “battle of the dresses” showdown! Here’s what we have to say about the divas but we’ll let you take the final call.

A winner in our eyes *just saying*, Selena Gomez’ stunning red sequin dress by Givenchy looks nothing like a disco ball, but more like a sparkling ruby. And the sleek hair do and almost nude make up rounds up the look to make it tres chic and on point. Selena, is it safe to say the style gods have been “good to you” this season?

Next up, we’re absolutely in love with Gigi’s new sleek bob! And that gravity-defying dress makes her look like Greek goddess (note to self: sign up for pilates class). Making a stylish comeback, we love Carrie Underwood’s amazing rose gold bodycon and sparkly cascading cape. She’s definitely saving the world, one single at a time!

And just when we thought the LBD (little and long) was off the fashion radar, these divas begged to differ. Bold and striking, some outrageous and some statement-making, black is back!

L to R: Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Gwen Stefani, Chloe Moretz

While Kendall opted for a chic short dress with feather shoulders, Kylie went rogue with a body hugging and chain linked dress. Psst… We definitely know which Jenner sister has more class! More of a let down though was Gwen Stefani’s bat-cape-and-underwear ensemble- Comic Con appropriate, red carpet disappointment.

In a gorgeous slip dress complete with a choker necklace and hair clips, we quite love how the Chloe is bringing the ’90s back!

Serenading chic and glam back to the carpet, Meghan Trainor looks absolutely stunning in her structured shoulder fishtail gown, while Ciara pulls off a fierce look in a barely-there sheer black dress (second note to self: must diligently attend pilates class!). As for Giuliana Rancic, does she ever fail on the red carpet? Does she!?! We think she packed the final sartorial punch.
