And actress Dove Cameron was among the stars in attendance who showed off their fashion prowess on the red carpet ahead of the festivities.

Wanting to leave a lasting impression, Cameron stepped in front of photographers in a bizarre pink and white ruffled skirt.

The skirt was styled with a black bandeau top that helped showcase her toned midriff.

The star also donned long black gloves that covered three-quarters of each arm and added another element of drama to her red carpet look.

She had her dark brown tresses pulled back into a sleek bun with a part in the middle.

After lighting up the red carpet, Cameron made her way inside the venue to get prepared for her performance.

The Emmy-winner would eventually emerge on stage to deliver a rendition of her new single, Boyfriend, decked out in a strapless black gown, as reported by Playbill.  The bell-shaped design included white sheer fabric that fell all the way to the ground. 

The Descendants star decided to let her hair down, flowing past the middle of her back with a center part.

Like her first ensemble, Cameron again wore a pair of long black gloves for an added touch of style.

The awards honor the various media genres, including films, television shows, video games, musicians and works of journalism for fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community. 

The criteria for projects that are submitted are also judged on the boldness and originality of the content; impact of the media project; and overall quality of the project.

Since its inception in 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have grown to be the most visible annual LGBTQ awards show in the world, sending powerful messages of acceptance to audiences globally.
