Last night, MTV hosted its annual Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Like every year, the night was met with a bevy of A-list celebrities, jaw-dropping performances and, of course, a slew of swanky outfits.
I had the pleasure of hitting up the
red white carpet before the ceremony to get a first-hand glimpse of the steez up close and personal – and let me tell you, it more than just an eye-full. While some stars killed it in the swag department, others either missed the finish line ever so slightly or would be better off firing their stylists ASAP.
Here’s the best, worst and most “WTF” fashion moments from the 2016 VMAs. Missed it on TV last night? Check out our recap of everything that went down.
My man Ferg tearing it up in that vintage Dior velour tracksuit.
Rihanna. Hood By Air. Enough said.
We can get it up.
Looking like a true vanguard in Alexandra Vaulthier Couture.
Pretty sure only RiRi can pull off what otherwise looks like Christmas tree tinsel.
Nicki looking “savage” in Bao Tranchi.
2 Chainz getting on the Gucci tip once more.
To be honest, this pared-back look suits Kim pretty well. Not mad at it.
Rita Ora on that punk-chic-whatever wave in Marc Jacobs FW16.
Studs for dayzzz.
Do you really need a caption for this one though?
Like mother like daughter.
Cruella De Ill.
Nice Raf coat, Ty.
Completely biased, but c’mon. Serious #baegoals right here.
Pan-don’t, Pan-don’t, Pan-don’t.
Hope Kim’s face didn’t rub off on ‘Ye’s all-white getup.
Looks like someone saw the new Star Trek.
Not entirely sure what’s going on here.
Listens to Marilyn Manson once. (Stick to Brand New fam, more Hot Topic-friendly).
Not sure how you could make pink latex and thigh-high suede boots look underwhelming, but there’s just something off about this look.
What do y’all think of this pattern for my pool house bathroom wallpaper?
Do you honestly think we’d place Joanne the Scammer in a list that didn’t have the word “mess” in the title?
Same goes for the biggest troll in fashion, Jeremy Scott.
A bit frumpy for Amber, no?
Sorry Ty, but only Young Thug (or Jeffrey, rather) can make lace tops look street af to be honest.
Big Bird on the glow up.
I Want What They’re On
Goes to Berghain once…
If you’re color blind, I envy you.
Don’t think I want what he’s on.
