Lizzo wowed in Jean Paul Gaultier
Lizzo brought some drama to the VMAs matching her elaborate Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown to the black carpet. The Good As Hell singer looked sensational in the strapless design, which featured ruffles, plenty of volume, and a train. She teamed her dress with a pair of sheer black gloves and wore her raven tresses slicked back, adding black lipstick and ornate earrings to finish off her look.
Taylor stole the show
Taylor Swift looked phenomenal in this chain-link-style silver sparkling dress by Oscar de la Renta. The nominee protected her modesty with a nude-colored slip underneath and we love the contrasting bold red lip and matching heels.
Lil Nas X
Lil Nas X turned heads
Lil Nas X went for all-out drama in this exquisite Harris Reed creation. From the halo-style headpiece to the feathered skirt and pants combo – we love it!
Sofia looked gorgeous
Purple Hearts star Sofia Carson opted for a bold look in Carolina Herrera. The black column dress was taken up a level thanks to the dramatic veil headpiece that connected through her arms.
Blackpink matched in black
Lisa, Jisoo, Jennie and Rosé of Blackpink showed off their individual style while also keeping a uniform look in black dresses. Lisa rocked a strapless Celine dress with a subtle cut-out across her stomach. Jisoo opted for a lacy black Christian Dior frock. Jennie flashed some skin in Chanel and Rosé highlighted her legs in a mini black turtleneck dress by Saint Laurent.
Anitta looked beautiful in this structured red dress by Schiaparelli Couture and D'Accori shoes.
You can never go wrong with polka dots as proved by composer Chloe Flower, who looked incredible in this Celine mini with exaggerated sleeves and white platform heels. Extra points for the hat too.
Sabrina rocked autumn florals
Singer, songwriter, and actress Sabrina Carpenter opted for autumn florals in this stunning Moschino Resort 2023 fishtail gown which featured a halter neck design, figure-hugging fit, and daring cut-outs along her waist and chest.
Måneskin looked glam in Gucci
Italian rock band Måneskin certainly brought their glam sense of style to the VMAs, with all members rocking some sparkling sequins and luxe fabrics from Gucci.
Becky G looked amazing
Becky G wowed in Zuhair Murad Couture. The daring dress featured a stained-glass window print and risqué cut-outs that ran from her hip all the way to the bottom of the dress.
Chloe brought some sparkle in silver
Singer Chloe Bailey looked sensational in this silver metallic and sequin dress by Zigman. The mesh panel across her stomach and thigh-high split showcased her curves and the contrasting detailing across the bust added a futuristic flair.
Bebe stunned in black
Singer Bebe Rexha oozed glamour in this figure-hugging, low-cut Vivienne Westwood creation that nipped in her waist and highlighted her legs thanks to a high front split. She topped it off with a necklace, pendant, and ring from Loree Rodkin.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
The Chilli Peppers brought their usual style
You can always count on the Chilli Peppers to slay a red carpet with their impeccable style and they didn't disappoint at the VMAs in their printed suits.
Sarah wore vintage Chanel
Parenthood actress Sarah Ramos kept it chic in vintage Chanel from Tab Vintage. We love the sleeveless shirt, bowtie and waist-cinching patent leather skirt.
Avril kept it casual
Avril Lavigne kept it very casual for the VMAs, opting for a long-sleeved black T-shirt and matching cargo pants with a chain. While she may not have looked as 'glam' as the other attendees, she stuck to her pop-punk style and we love her for it.
Dove also rocked florals
Dove Cameron looked edgy in her Paco Rabanne dress that featured a floral print, leather corset-style detailing across the bust, and a leather belt that nipped in her waist. Her braids, belt strap choker, and siren eyes completed her look.
Chloe's dress was full of treats
Actress, writer, and comedian Chloe Fineman grabbed attention in her 'Cart Couture' dress by designer threeASFOUR for grocery pickup and delivery company Instacart. The quirky design played on the VMAs 'no outside food' rule and included interactive jellybean-shaped clutches that hold snack items like chips, candy, and dried fruit for Chloe to share with fellow red carpet and show attendees.
