That is one responsible safety pin...

  • While there is no known cure for Monday blues, celebrity red carpet sightings have been known to temporarily alleviate the symptoms. An unhealthy intake of chocolate is another medically-advised solution (or so we'd like to believe), but we'll stick to 'ooh-ing' and 'aah-ing' over celebrities, thank you.

    The American Music Awards 2016, held in Los Angeles on Sunday, saw a host of celebrities raising the bar, as far as red carpet glamour goes, one designer dress at a time. From Chrissy Teigen taking the side slit to a whole new level to Gigi Hadid's bridal moment, we've rounded up our favourite looks from the AMAs '16 red carpet.

    Which look is your favourite? Sound off in the comments.

How she managed to walk without a serious wardrobe malfunction is right below mysterious UFO sightings in the list of 'Unsolved Mysteries'.

  • Once we managed to take our eyes off Nina Dobrev's side braids, we could take in the Zuhair Murad blazer and shorts combo that is a study in (the right kind of) bling.
