The 10 Most Memorable iHeartRadio Music Awards Outfits


Some of the best celebrity style moments we get to see are often set on award show red carpets where actors and artists get to dress to the nines, and the iHeartRadio Music Awards isn’t just a stage where we can celebrate music, but also the immaculate fashion donned on our favourite stars.

This music award show is a fun event where we get to admire cool and edgy looks that are capable of setting trends and being placed in the halls of unforgettable red carpet outfits. Here are some of our favourite ones from the iHeartRadio Music Awards’ 7 year history.

Doja Cat

Doja Cat is known for sporting risque and more interesting award show looks, and her outfit for the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards was no different. The rapper and singer wore an absolutely stunning full-length sheer green gown by Brandon Maxwell that flowed beautifully as she twirled for the cameras.

Cardi B

Rapper Cardi B accepted her award for Best New Artist back in 2018 wearing this fantastic Christian Siriano dress. The burgundy tulle minidress was simple yet statement thanks to its poofy tiered skirt offset by a plunging neckline and tight fitted bodice.

Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves has had some excellent red carpet moments throughout the past few years, and this look from 2019 is no different. The country singer wore this fun asymmetric yellow gown from Versace that features a thigh-high split and safety pin details at the ruched waist.

John Legend

It’s such a refreshing sight to see men wearing colour on the red carpet, so it was especially delightful when John Legend rocked up to the awards show in 2019 wearing this lilac suit from Paul Smith paired by white Celine boots for a truly eyecatching look.


Fashion icon Zendaya has always showed up on the red carpet in nothing but the best, and in 2015 she sported this fun and colourful minidress from Fausto Puglisi that featured a green and pink cutout top that connected to a multicolour skirt. She topped off the look with an equally bright pair of pink heels.


We love the edgy outfit that Halsey pulled together for the 2017 show. The bright yellow ensemble from Versus Versace features an oversized cagoule, low waisted trousers, and an unorthodox belt in replacement of a top.

Hailey Bieber

Model Hailey Bieber stunned on the red carpet in this sparkling number. The jumpsuit from Zuhair Murad features beaded fringe, a plunging neckline, and glimmering embellishments that made the star, quite literally, the brightest of the evening.

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X has been rocking some of the most memorable menswear on the red carpet for the past couple of years, and he didn’t let up with this iridescent outfit at the 2021 show. 

The rapper forewent wearing a shirt with the oversized blazer and opted for silver earrings, white boots, and a matching white Telfar bag to pull the look together.

Bebe Rexha

Bebe Rexha‘s 2016 look was sleek and understated. The two-piece set featured a long-sleeved crop top with exaggerated shoulders and midi-length fitted skirt finished off with strappy black heels and gold accessories.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton looked amazing in this unique Charbel Zoe minidress at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards. The red frock featured a high neck, long sleeves, poofy skirt, and an all-over heart motif print.

Final Note

Red carpets are full of some of the best and most creative outfits we can take inspiration from. The iHeartRadio Music Awards is a fantastic place to spot edgy and creative looks that we don’t get to see on other red carpets. From bright colours to unique silhouettes, we’re excited to see what other ensembles will be put together at the next show.

Imani Jackson

Imani Jackson is a writer born, raised, and based in South London. She developed a keen eye for style through her habit of observing people’s clothes in the street every day. When she isn’t doing that, she likes to spend her time writing about the trends she sees, going out and dancing with the girls, or curating her R&B playlist for the next round of people-watching.
