  • The iHeartRadio Music Awards took place on Thursday, 27 May 2021 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
  • E! News reports that celebrated chart toppers including Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, and Dua Lipa, were in attendance as they had all earned nominations ahead of the event.
  • Here, we take a look at 11 red carpet looks that rocked the evening. 

Earlier this week, we rounded up our favourite Billboard Music Awards looks, musing on how music awards ceremonies often present us with more vibrant, audacious, riskier red carpet moments than their film awards counterpart. 

"While suits, avant-garde ensembles, and edgier styling dominate, there is a respectful number of celebrities who still go the 'belle of the ball' route," we observed, adding that "maybe this is what makes music awards red carpets rather intriguing and full of surprises.

"It was music awards ceremonies, after all, that gave us Lil Kim's 1999 iconic breast-baring purple pasty and Lady Gaga's 2010 meat dress (both at the VMAs)."
