There were many more stars rocking all sorts of looks at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City.
Grace VanderWaal: This Elkin dress and Eugenia Kim beret look is a precise hybrid of what happens when French schoolgirl meets disco ball.
King Princess: The Canadian tuxedo takes on jumpsuit proportions in this belted-up Adam Selman Fall 2018 design. The literal garter “belt” is one thing, but it’s the black orthopedic shoes that kinda killed it for me.
Kim Petras: The Moschino retro kitsch factor was coming in hot here with this zebra, one-sleeve/glove look, styled with tights and mega spiked Victoria Hayes hoops, that would have placed Kim at a costume party instead of the VMAs had we not known better.
Amara La Negra: With such fabulous hair, Amara really could have worn a paper bag and made quite the impression. This vivid-green Valentino Omar gown and cape did the trick though, too.
Nicky Hilton: There was an inherent cutesiness tied up in this Valentino off-the-shoulder frock that balanced precious charm and stylish chicness. However, I would have lost the cuff and embellished clutch.
Sabrina Carpenter: Relying on the standard sexiness of a Versace slit-to-there gown, Sabrina defied her youthful 19 years of age to focus more on all-grown-up sultriness.
Ashanti: Her hair and makeup looked beautiful, but with this décolletage and double-slit sexy-Renaissance-esque gown by Elie Madi, the focal point transitioned to below the neck. I do question if the slits had to be that high. Giuseppe Zanotti sandals completed the look.
Madison Beer: The bold shoulders continued strong with this Raisa & Vanessa ensemble that put an ’80s vibe into silk pajama dressing.
Teyana Taylor: Good thing Teyana came wearing her smoldering workout clothes, so she could perfect her six-pack after the show. But, seriously, can we talk about those washboard abs.
