Taylor Swift had all eyes on her as she took to the American Music Awards 2018.

The 28-year-old is gearing up to open the annual event – in her first performance at the awards in three years.

And she came dressed for the occasion, rocking a mirrorball mini-dress on the red carpet.

The Shake It Off singer showed off a futuristic vibe in a glittery outfit, adorned with what seemed like thousands of mini square mirrors.

Tay-Tay completed her look with a pair of matching, thigh-high boots – and we are seriously obsessed.

It was revealed she will be opening the show with I Did Something Bad, taken from her latest album, Reputation.

Taylors close pal – and Reputation tour buddy – Camila Cabello went in the complete opposite direction for her AMAs outfit.

Rita Ora also opted for an all-black outfit, but went for a floor-length sheer floral gown, with a poofy, cold-shoulder detail.

The I Will Never Let You Down star scraped her trademark blonde hair into a high pony-tail, with a chic flick.

She was soon joined on the carpet by Shawn Mendes, who looked dapper as ever in a black suit, with a patterned white shirt – and deep maroon boots.

The In My Blood star couldnt stop grinning for the cameras on the red carpet – and seeing as hes been nominated for two gongs, we can see why.
