Don’t get me wrong, I love the high-glamour moments from the Oscars and the Golden Globes, but there’s just something about the fashion showcased at the MTV VMAs that hits different. From Lady Gaga’s iconic meat dress in 2010 to Rose McGowan’s next-to-naked sequin dress in 1998, MTV’s biggest night is always home to next-level, sometimes even shocking looks. And this year’s selection is sure to be no exception.
With performances by Lizzo, Nicki Minaj, and Blackpink on the evening’s lineup, and nominees like Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Doja Cat potentially making an appearance, I’m betting big that 2022’s sartorial selection will more than exceed expectations. Follow along as we pick out all the best looks from tonight’s VMAs red carpet below.
