Women ruled the stage and rocked the red carpet at this year's American Music Awards in Los Angeles last night.

The red carpet was a wash of black with many ladies opting to go back to black proving that the LBD is far from dead.

Here are a few celebs who slayed in black:

Lady Gaga, who beat Rihanna to win favourite female pop/rock artist, wore a black bodycon Alaïa dress in honour of fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa who passed away on Saturday. 

In true Gaga style she wore the mini dress with a pair of her signature high platform heels and 80's inspired big, curly hair.
