While many entertainment awards have been forced to go online this year due to the pandemic, the People’s Choice Awards put on a good old fashioned star-studded ceremony (minus the usual audience) with celebs appearing in person to collect their gongs.

That meant we got to peruse all the outfits – and there were some fabulous looks on show from the music, movie and TV stars in attendance.

Here are the top trends and hottest looks from the People’s Choice Awards 2020…

Sparkles

Host for the evening Demi Lovato donned no fewer than five different looks, all of them sparkling or shimmering in some way. The pop star started on the red carpet with a rust coloured co-ord set, before taking to the stage in a low-cut pink and silver gown.

The singer completed her impressive disco-tastic line-up with a rainbow striped mini dress, a ruched purple dress and a black floor-length gown.
