The Alternative Press Music Awards (APMAs) are a yearly awards ceremony which celebrates some of the best rock and metal acts of the moment. This year’s event took place on the night of the 17th of July, 2017 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
Some of the most exciting musical groups turned up to attend the celebrations.
These included the likes of New Years Day, Pierce the Veil, PVRIS, Sleeping with Sirens and One OK Rock.
The awards show also featured several guest performances on the night from bands such as Korn, Against Me! and The Pretty Reckless.
It was presented by Black Veil Brides singer, Andy Biersack.
Awards given during the night include Best Breakthrough Act, Best Vocalist and Best Live Band.
They were given to Waterparks, Lynn Gunn (from PVRIS) and Falling in Reverse consecutively.
As well as the prizes, attention was also focused on what the guests wore to the event.
Therefore, lets take a look at some of the most memorable outfits from the APMA’s from this year.
When ever I am upset or having a hard time I just imagine how awesome it would be to hug Andy, any one else do that or is that weird? 🤷🏻♀️ – – – – – #andybvb #andyblack #andybiersack #jakepitts #jinxx #cc #ashleypurdy #blackveilbrides #blackveilbridesarmy #bvbarmy #bvb5 #bvb #warpedtour #warpedtour2017 #apmas #alternativepress #americansatan #fanaccount #bands
This first look comes from the APMA’s host: Andy Biersack.
Wearing a red matching tartan two piece suit paired with a crisp white shirt and black tie combo.
Biersack completes the look perfectly with a slick hair-do and minimal jewellery.
The tartan suit definitely adds a touch of 80’s inspired punk to the mix which we are really loving.
This look comes from professional make-up artist: Jeffree Star.
Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that this look just suits him down to the ground.
In this shot, Star is pictured with his current beau Nathan.
He is wearing a long sleeve black bodycon dress which shows off his figure in all the right places.
The high neckline and corseted detailing at the front of the garment sprinkle a modern twist on the outfit.
Finishing the look off with a pair of snake printed long black boots and a slick hair-do makes this look go from classic to cute.
His partner is also looking very snazzy in his getup for the ceremony – what an awesome suit.
This is a stunningly beautiful look from New Years Day vocalist: Ash Costello.
In this shot, Costello is sporting a black maxi dress with cut out detailing.
An interesting detail of this outfit is the ribcage inspired feature on the chest, which fits in incredibly well with Ash’s sense of style.
Can we also take a moment to appreciate how awesome her hair is?
This look comes from PVRIS vocalist Lynn Gunn.
In this shot, Gunn has spun her own take on current trends as usual which we are absolutely digging.
She is sporting a black waistcoat and black jean ensemble which is giving off all the cool, edgy vibes.
The look has been finished off with some minimal jewellery and simple make-up to create an effortless look.
That concludes this post on some of the best fashion choices from this year’s Alternative Press Music Awards in Ohio.
I’m more than excited to see who will be appearing next year.
Which look is your favourite?
Even though accessories were not a prominent feature of any of the above celeb looks, you could add your own touch by styling them with a pair of awe-worthy specs.
A classic example which would go well with the female looks from above are this pair of Dolce & Gabbana DG2160B‘s.
