It's Breast Cancer Awareness month and several celebrities hit the red carpet at the 2018 American Music Awards to show support. Women rocking pantsuits were also a trend we noticed for this year's award show that was held inside the Microsoft Theater in LA.

Tracee Ellis Ross came ready to represent Breast Cancer Awareness month and power suits to host for her 2nd consecutive year, tying with her mother Diana Ross, who hosted the show in both 1986 and 1987.

The "black-ish" actress said ALL of her looks were "for the culture" as she was rocking all designs created by black designers. Shoutout to inclusiveness. For her red carpet look, she wore a pink and black Pyer Moss suit before opening the show with a 3 in a half minute choreographed dance routine.

Ella Mai also served up oversized pantsuit realness in a look custom designed by Sergio Hudson.  We're underwhelmed.  A pop of bold color and a better tailor would have made this look bomb.

The British songbird was nominated for two AMAs, including Favorite Female Artist – Soul/R&B and Favorite Song – Soul/R&B. Does her look have you all in your feelings or nah?

"Love & Hip Hop: Miami" star/artist Amara La Negra def served up a bold look when she pulled up on the red carpet. The "What A Bam Bam" singer posed it up in an iridescent Valentino Omar pantsuit. No bueno, but she's still a bad chick nonetheless.

Four-time nominee Khalid, who copped the Favorite Soul/R&B Make Artist award, kept it stylish, yet comfortable, in a pink suit and dad sneakers.
