The Only MTV VMA Red Carpet Looks You Need to See This Morning

We don’t really play favourites when it comes to red carpet events. Be it the Oscars, Emmys or Tonys, each award show has something special to bring to the table. But last night’s MTV Video Music Awards feels special, and it’s not just because Madonna and Jennifer Lopez were both in attendance. Combine some of the music industry’s most creative, outspoken, and varied musical talents on one red carpet and you’re sure to see an explosion of personal style that’s theatrical, bold, and unexpected (see: Lady Gaga in a meat dress, Gwen Stefani in a not-so-sailor-approved nautical ensemble). Last night, there was no shortage of memorable (perhaps even history-making) moments thanks to the likes of Kylie Jenner and Nicki Minaj. Keep scrolling to see all of the key red carpet looks from last night's VMAs.
