Conjure the words "red carpet," and your first (albeit stylish) thought would be of drop-dead gorgeous dresses. Not tonight.
Music's biggest stars bucked the traditional red carpet attire for one of spring's most major fashion trends: dressy pants. The likes of Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Zendaya, and Selena Gomez ditched flirty dresses for powerful, bold trousers at the iHeart Radio music Awards. And yes, each of them wore the trend like the bosses they are. Lovato went for an updated version of the '80s power suit in a black-and-white jumpsuit with built-up shoulders. Swift channeled Cat Woman in a skin-tight turtleneck jumpsuit coated in jet black bugle beads. Gomez went all out in a tangerine look with slash cutouts at the midriff. And then there was Zendaya, who slayed in a red crushed-velvet pantsuit over a black bralette—like we said, slayed. See how each of the stars pulled off the looks in their own way right here:
