• From Miley Cyrus' giant kitten to Lady Gaga's white horse, the 2013 American Music Awards had its share of memorable moments. But it's the hair and makeup that we can't stop obsessing over. Here are our top looks from the night.

    Katy Perry

    Makeup artist Jake Bailey created a "classic Katy" look using CoverGirl LipPerfection Lip Color in Hot for a bold red lip.

  • Jennifer Hudson

    That pixie cut! That blue liner! That orange gown! We couldn't get enough of Jennifer Hudson on the red carpet. Makeup artist Shannon Pezzetta used Lancôme Artliner 24H in Sapphire to create a pop of color on Hudson's eyes.

  • Rihanna

    The award for most disappointing look of the night goes to Rihanna, whose visible tan lines and hairpin-heavy hairstyle didn't do it for us.

  • Taylor Swift The singer added rock and roll volume to her long layered haircut.

  • Nicole Richie

    We loved Nicole Richie's gilded statement eye makeup, which makeup artist Lauren Anderson created using Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Metal Eyes. Hair stylist Renato Campora added shine to her sleek French twist using Frizz-Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist.

  • Lady Gaga

    This may be the prettiest Lady Gaga has ever looked. Agree?

  • Kelly Osbourne

    Her hairstyle reminded us of a stegosaurus, in the best way possible.

  • Christina Aguilera

    The singer rocked a bombshell look complete with platinum waves and a red-orange lip.

  • Ke$ha

    This two-toned pastel hair is totally Pinterest-worthy.

  • Zoe Saldana

    Hair stylist Aviva Perea used Frizz-Ease Heat Defeat Styling Spray to create Saldana's super sleek blowout.

  • Miley Cyrus

    This is more than we ever wanted to know about Miley's bikini wax.

  • Jennifer Lopez Now that's a ponytail.
