Since the first MTV Video Music Awards in 1984, the live music awards show has been anything but boring.
Celebs perform, premiere new songs, reveal secrets (hello, Beyonce’s twins), and even air their feuds, but most importantly, they wear some seriously innovative, creative and off-the-wall outfits.
And this year was no exception. Check out the wildest looks on this year’s red carpet.
Nicki rocked this crazy, yet chic Barbie-pink latex unitard. We can’t even imagine the time and effort it must have taken to put this on. Was there baby powder involved? Maybe some sort of lubricant?
Jeremy Scott of Moschino showed up in a Nirvana tee, snakeskin pants, and flashy gold cowboy boots.
Photographer Rory Kramer donned a bright yellow McDonalds McChicken suit. Can you say… McDreamy?
Not one to be outdone, Jared Leto wore a calf-length sequin jacket over a pink floral blouse.
Demi Lovato looked polished but funky in her shimmering, wide-leg pants and super sheer lace top.
Olivia Munn wore this short embroidered dress created by Nicolas Jebran. We could do without that angel though, no? What do you think?
Sophie Beem’s striped outfit looks like something one might wear the morning after crashing at a friends house.
Redman looked regal-punk in his green embroidered jacket and hardware-heavy pants.
Mel B definitely sent a message with this bold sequined dress.
Heidi Klum wore this daringly sheer gown.
There’s a lot going on in this black fringe dress worn by Love and Hip Hop’s Hazel E.
Jasmine Sanders looks great in this Moschino pairing, but we can’t stop thinking she belongs somewhere in the live-action version of Peter Pan.
Alessandra Ambrosio looks fierce in this intricate dress and those matching thigh-high lace-up boots. The boots earn her second place for longest-time-to-get-dressed (after Nicki Minaj, of course).
Farrah Abraham let her metallic gold boots do the talking.
Justine Valentine didn’t hold back with this revealing mesh t-shirt dress.
Cole Whittle of DNCE wore a cool patterned suit, but forgot his shirt at home.
Hailey Baldwin kept it simple but sheer in this lacy body suit.
Sheer body suits are catching on this year. Remy Ma followed suit in this floral one.
Kelly Doty, Ryan Ashley, and Nikki Simpson
In latex, pleather, and chiffon, Kelly Doty, Ryan Ashley, and Nikki Simpson definitely made an impression.
Paris Jackson looks a enchanting in her alternative take on the sheer trend.
DJ Khaled and baby Asahd
DJ Kaled’s son, Asahd, is literally the cutest. He wins the red carpet in our hearts! 10/10.
Which do you think were the best and worst looks from this year’s VMAs?
