The Best & Most Head-Scratching Looks On MTV VMAs Red Carpet

The good, the bad and the ugly. The 2018 MTV VMAs certainly had it all. Sure, viewers are watching to acknowledge the abundance legendary video-making this past year, but what would the VMAs be without the red carpet and iconic fashion moments. Let’s never forget Madonna’s 1984 white bustier dress look with the “Boy Toy” name belt, or Lil Kim’s one-shouldered purple jumpsuit with a matching sequined breast-out. In more recent history, there was that time Blac Chyna and Amber Rose’s wore matching jumpsuits embellished with slut-shaming names. The VMAs carpet is ten home to some the most daring looks you’ll see all year, for whatever reason, it’s a place where artists take risks. Risk-taking means there’s bound to be some failure and some successes, here, we’re taking a look at both.

Take a look at some the best looks from the night and some the most head-scratching. If you missed it, you can also catch all the performances from the night here.
