Tracee Ellis Ross returned to the American Music Awards stage for the second time as host, and you bet the star delivered jaw-dropping fashion moments we've been all waiting for. 

In collaboration with her stylist Karla Welch, Ross, a champion of diversity, featured the chicest African-American designer brands throughout the show with multiple outfit changes -- 10 to be exact. The Black-ish leading lady revealed to ET she had a two-hour fitting and another for an hour and a half to compile the looks (in the name of fashion, people!). 

Witness every stunning ensemble Ross rocked at the AMAs ahead. 

Before heading to the stage, the actress was utterly cool in a salmon pink Pyer Moss pantsuit and Christian Louboutin shoes, adorned with Djula, Mattia Cielo and Jacob & Co. jewelry on the red carpet.
