There were surprises and bold fashion choices on the American Music Awards 2021 red carpet, especially from the event's host.

Rapper Cardi B, a first-time host at the awards, had several stunning outfit changes throughout the glam night, but a Schiaparelli custom gown stole the show. She wore a black crepe jersey column dress with a black tulle veil and a custom face mask.

She accessorised the showstopper ensemble with Swarovski embellished piercings, chandelier earrings, black gloves and pierced golden nails.
