At 2015 iHeartRadio Awards, Rihanna And Taylor Swift Rock Bangs, Madonna Does Menswear, And Plus All The Other Memorable Looks

The second annual iHeart Radio Music Awards took place Sunday night, with all the pop divas and dudes stepping out. The fashion and beauty trends at the 2015 iHeart Radio Music Awards were pretty obvious, as both Rihanna and Taylor Swift opted for bangs and LBDs. Rihanna dressed her outfit up with a green Versace choker, while Swift went with sexy and skin-flashing.

But color was also in, in a variety of ways, from accessories (See: Rihanna) to entire suits (See: Justin Timberlake and Nick Jonas.) Color-blocking and mixed prints ruled as well.

Madonna opted for menswear while performing — no capes this time! — and she reminded us that she will always dictate, as opposed to react to, fashion.

In case you missed the festivities, let's scroll through the most memorable looks of the evening.

Taylor Swift

Swift donned a sexy, sparkly, and super short LBD by Kaufman Franco with cutouts and a halter-like neckline. It was one of her best minis ever, IMHO. She also went back to the blunt bangs, as opposed to the recent side sweep she’s been rocking. It was a heavy, thick, and voluminous hair look, balanced by the slim silhouette of her frock.


Iggy Azalea

The rapper, who has taken a pause on social media due to all the beefs she has been involved in, showed up with defined spiral curls, a marked difference from the mermaid braids she sported at the Grammys. Big hair, don’t care.



Rihanna brought back the short, Michelle-Pfeiffer-in-Scarface bangs. That Versace name logo choker, the fur coat, shades, and boots combo has me green with envy.

Rihanna Part Deux

Here’s another look at RiRi, looking gorgeous in her body con LBD tank dress with green accessories. Even without the coat, the boots and necklace were just enough green glory.

Ariel Winter

The Modern Family actress paired a sleeveless white mini, which played up her curves, with blue streaks in her dark waves. What a fantastic touch!

Madonna’s take on menswear was, of course, sexy. She paired her fluffy, pirate-like shirt with garters, boots, and that babe known as Taylor Swift.

More Madonna x Taylor Swift

When not performing, Madge wore a gray, metallic dress. She was also flanked by T. Swift… again.

Fifth Harmony

The girl group was in sync in all black at the event. Each girl had her own unique and embellished take on their uniform hue, from leather to shorts to leggings to a catsuit to metallic accents. The verdict? So, so chic.


Jennifer Hudson

J. Hud is still rocking her pixie and she paired it with a patterned mini that showed off her killer gams.


Hailee Steinfeld

Taylor Swift’s BFF Hailee Steinfeld wore Dior from top to toe. The colorful dress popped against the black, legging-like boots. And the flying saucer style top was nothing if not… unusual.


Meghan Trainor

The body positive singer poured her enviable curves into a bustier and a sparkly shrug. She kills it every time.


Justin Timberlake

JT, the expectant father, had the blues in a cobalt suit, paired with a black shirt. It was bright and unforgettable. See, told ya that the iHeart Radio Music Awards were all about color!

Chris Brown

Is that… Pharrell Williams with that Mounties hat? Nope. That’s Chris Brown. Breezy was all about the accessories, with the hat, shades, and that… um, interesting jacket.



The multi-hyphenate known as Zendaya (singer/actress/dancer/model) opted for a color x print mini by Fausto Puglisi. Her mixing of print and bright colors was adventurous and gorgeous.


Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas opted for a red and black plaid suit. It’s a tough look to pull off, even when you are as hot, both in looks and in terms of career success, as Jonas. But he worked it.


Adam Lambert

The always glam Adam Lambert wore his beloved and signature black, but he was playful with textures and stripes, and those boots. Looking good, as always!

Kelly Clarkson

The singer and new mom chose a blue dress with lacy, green overlay.
