Forget the tuchus, the thigh is hotter than a KFC rotisserie according to the looks paraded down the American Music Awards red carpet.
A gaggle of musicians including Jennifer Lopez, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, Nicki Minaj and Jordin Sparks channeled Angelina Jolie's 2012 Oscars look and put their best foot and femurs forward in gowns by Halston Heritage and Alexander Wang.
While the biggest names in music like Beyonce, Katy Perry and Rihanna were no shows, a cavalcade of other celebrities picked up the red carpet sartorial slack.
Reality star Kourtney Kardashian accompanied her two younger sisters, Kylie and the new face of Estee Lauder, Kendall Jenner. All three got the 'do the splits' memo. Chanel model Kendall left little to the imagination by teaming black briefs with a sheer mesh Yigal Azrouel gown.
E! host Giuliana Rancic wore an asymmetrical Alex Perry gown – with standard issue thigh high split.
Extra TV presenter Renee Bargh chose to champion her Australian heritage with an Alice McCall crop top with on-trend cut outs and ankle grazing skirt. Model turned sportswear and lingerie designer Heidi Klum presented the Artist of the Year award to One Direction wearing a youthful, crystal encrusted bra and skirt by Versace.
Resplendent in yellow Zac Posen, Rita Ora, who had her hair done in the back of a taxi, and Selena Gomez, in a black boat neck number, brought the old school glamour with floor length hemlines.
Iggy Azelea stole the show inside the auditorium taking home a swag of awards but not before her countrymen, 5 Seconds of Summer, dominated social media chatter due to bassist Calum Hood's wardrobe malfunction.
During the performance of their hit song What I Like About You, the 18-year-old's nipples were on the tip of Twitter's tongue thanks to his Stereosonic-esque singlet. That was fun. #whatilikeaboutnipples — Calum Hood (@Calum5SOS) November 24, 2014
