On Monday, August 20th the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards exploded onto the scene with stellar fashions from today’s hottest stars. And of course, every one is more interested in the fashions on the red carpet than the actual show! Back to where it all started, the awards took place at Radio City in New York without a host and included performances from some of music’s hottest names like Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Cardi B and even Jennifer Lopez! It was actually her first VMA performance since 2001, so you know she showed up looking as fierce and as beautiful as ever! Here are some of the best dressed from the VMAs:
New momma Cardi B showed up in a short hairdo and a beautiful Nicolas Jebran burgundy/dark magenta velvet off-the-should dress and a high front slit from! Her curves looked amazing in the dress and she was definitely glowing. She even joked with the audience, bringing her VMA award on stage wrapped in a baby blanket. People thought it was her daughter!
J-Lo is the queen of red carpets and this one was no different. She walked the pink carpet in a silver metallic asymmetrical shoulder Versace dress and a matching Jimmy Choo metallic silver clutch. Her long bronde hair was straightened and the dress had a high front leg slit that showed off her very tone legs. Lopez was also given the Vanguard Award at the event and totally deserved it!
Bold and brazen is how you’d describe Rita Ora’s Jean Paul Gaultier black lace dress that was totally see through! The intricate patterns made it very feminine, while the see through part made it super sexy. She gave it some edge with a thick black choker and slicked back hair with dramatic makeup.
On fire is what you’d call Algee Smith’s Moschino jacket and pants number that featured gold embroidery and embellishments topped off with matching red Facto shoes!
The Latin artist showed up to the award show in an all-white suite that looked sleek and clean. It offset his rugged look. But it was the red metallic shoes that brought the entire piece together!
The supermodel looked extra fancy with her metallic Elie Saab number that featured two front leg slits that showed off her sexy Giuseppe Zanotti stilettoes. She finished the look with a Judith Leiber Couture clutch.
The “Orange is the New Black” actress showed off her sexy curves in a see through lace number in grey. It was provocative and fierce, especially since she dawned some geometric eye shadow to match.
The one-shoulder silver fringe and black dress really looked great on Audrina Patridge, who announced that she’ll be back on MTV for their “The Hills” reboot! The reality show aired on MTV for six seasons from 2006 to 2010.
