This year’s VMAs is all about the textures — from tweed to feathers, lace and leather, the artists in attendance tonight are rocking trends old and new from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Check out our rankings of who slayed it on the red carpet and who looks like they got dressed in the dark.
Nick Cannon looks like a clown here. Nothing else to say other than 0/10.
What was Shawn Mendes thinking? This outfit is not flattering at all for the handsome singer. And doesn't he know not to wear white after Labor Day? 1/10.
Jamila Mustafa took a trip back to 2008 and left with the worst fashion of the era. The peplum top and shiny leather leggings look really cheap. 1/10.
The Kid Laroi's facial expression and his bare chest and gaudy leather and necklace is all types of wrong. 1/10.
Symone (L) and Kandy Muse seem to be celebrating Halloween early, because these looks are straight up scary! 1/10.
This trio taking a photo together could not have been even more wrong. Kim Petras' look kills all of the other ladies' looks just by being in the photo. 2/10.
The punk princess rocked a pattern very well-known to her: plaid. However, the cut is not flattering, and we've seen her wear plenty of neon pink that this is just predictable. 3/10.
Ed Sheeran's attempt at fashion is a big miss, though we didn't expect anything spectacular, he should have played it safe with a solid color. 3/10.
Billie Eilish looks like a frumpy librarian. We were expecting a more from the singer. 3/10.
We are LOVING the appearance of the boy-banders at the awards show. AJ McLean's style is bold, but it works! 4/10.
Cyndi Lauper's pastel lilac hair is gorgeous, wearing a leather jacket. Not amazing, but not bad. 4/10.
Bella Poarch's lace look is elaborate and one of the more daring looks of the night with a train, but we've seen similar red carpet looks before. 4/10.
Iann Dior looks great and youthful in this ombre purple-blue suit. 4/10.
Anitta looks amazing in this angelic, sultry take on a classic look. 5/10.
(L-R) Halle Bailey looks great in white while sister Chloe kind of ruins it with this aluminum foil looking dress, so as a collective they earn a ranking of 5/10.
We are loving this salmon-colored tweed suit on SAINt JHN! 6.5/10
Kacey Musgraves gets points for originality, but the outfit seemed a bit incomplete. 6.5/10.
LilHuddy's use of zebra stripe accents in his jacket take his look to the next level while maintaining the black and white aesthetic. 6.5/10.
Jaden Hossler looks so much better bare chested under his suit than The Kid Laroi did. 6.5/10.
Normani stuns in all white, showing off her amazing figure. 7/10.
Dometi Pongo looks dapper in his plaid blazer and choice of jewelry. 7/10.
Lil Nas X surprisingly didn't show up pregnant at the red carpet. He did bring the 80s with him, with the curly mullet, though! We love the extra-ness of the lilac ensemble. 8/10.
Tinashe looks stunning in this leather ensemble. The color of her pants and use of lace-up tassels makes for a fierce look. 8/10.
Men wearing colorful suits and taking a risk get bonus points on the red carpet. Here, Jack Harlow rocks a perfect emerald green suit. 8/10.
Fashion models sure know how to dress, and Winnie Harlow did not miss with this beige ensemble, with her long legs on full display. 8/10
Tainy keeps it simple and sexy in his suit with silver chain. 8/10.
Quen Blackwell looks amazing in this Y2K look, sporting Baby Phat and tons of gold accents. 8.5/10
Flo Milli looks like a disco ball in the best way, shining bright to show us the star she is. Her hair is also flawless. 9/10.
Charli XCX looks stunning from head to toe in this outfit with carefully placed lace. 9/10.
Madison Beer is giving us Megan Fox vibes, looking sweet and sexy in a light pink satin dress with a hip-slit. 9.5/10
Hollywood's latest IT couple have blessed us with another amazing look. We are loving the details of Travis' studded knees and Kourtney's lace-up off-the-shoulder leather dress. 9.5/10.
Ashanti is serving looks and body in this criss-crossed ensemble! She looks amazing and youthful. 9.5/10.
Megan Fox!!! Took a daring look on the red carpet, leaving nothing to the imagination in this completely see-through number. 10/10.
Saweetie slays yet another red carpet look. Donning an Old Hollywood style dress and hair. Perfectio. 10/10.
Slay, Doja Cat, slay! We are OBSESSED with her thigh high patent leather boots and the purple and black is satisfying our fall dream color aesthetic. 10/10.
