The 2016 VMAs goes down in less than 90 minutes! With Rihanna opening the show, Beyoncé and Kanye performing, and a slew of stars slated to be in attendance, it’s going to be a wild ride.
Let’s get into the night’s looks!
Beyoncé shut the carpet down in a feather embellished confection by Francesco Scognamiglio. Cutie Blue Ivy was a New York City princess with a braided ‘do, pink tulle dress, and sneakers.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West weren’t nearly as glam as expected, though I did love Kim’s come hither vintage John Galliano LBD and wet hair.
Nicki Minaj smoldered in a navy, long-sleeve Bao Tranchi gown that hugged her every curve.
Queen Naomi Campbell was ravishing in a strapless Brandon Maxwell number.
Diddy wore a silky kimono for the night, showing that men too can get in on the bedroom to street trend.
Amber Rose was suited up in a black double-breasted Tom Ford suit, a black lacy La Perla bra peeking through, and silver mirror lens Dior shades. She’s never looked better!
Rita Ora skewed edgy in a fur-accented leather jacket and sheer, feather-detailed gown—both by Marc Jacobs.
Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys were easily one of the night’s best dressed couples, with the gentleman in a black and white ensemble and the lady in a red and black printed Just Cavalli gown.
Ariana Grande was clad in an Alexander Wang Spring 2017 black, off-the-shoulder lace ruffle bandeau, black trousers, and a black choker. Cute!
It was all about bombers for both Fabolous and his adorable son.
Jasmine Tookes rocked a star-embellished mini dress. She’s beyond beautiful!
Remy Ma certainly turned a few heads in a long-sleeve, lace-up printed mini dress. So glad she’s back.
Joan Smalls smized in a leather, crisscross bustier crop top and high-waist, zip-front trousers from Off White’s Fall 2016 collection. Stunning.
Winnie Harlow was fierce in a Nicolas Jebran draped dress with a thigh-high slit and leg-wrap sandals. I hope she’s a runway staple during Fashion Month.
Justine Skye was a multicolor dream in a Missoni fringe-accented dress and pink pumps. Hot!
Jaden Smith layered it on in an Undercover Lab by Junta Kahashi Fall 2016 coat for the occasion. He’s so cool! I love his style.
Chloe and Halle never disappoint! The young prodigies wore bold patterns, black lace, and stud embellishment—by way of Rodarte with Erickson Beamon jewels.
Dascha Polanco gave denim some flair with embellishment and a floor-grazing, one shoulder lace hem top by Yuna Yang.
Tinashe was draped and elegant in a red Juan Carlos Obando ensemble. Radiant!
Ashley Graham served curves in a sheer, long-sleeve embellished Naeem Khan gown. She’s a constant fave of mine for a reason.
Jidenna uplifted cropped trousers and loafers with a printed tunic. His style is impeccable.
Future elevated a simple, all-black look with a studded blazer. He always looks amazing.
2Chainz was practically Gucci down to the socks. He loves the iconic Italian fashion house—we can’t blame him!
Why wear a shirt? Ty Dolla Sign left his open for the evening. His swag was on 100!
Quvenzhane Wallis is all grown up! The beauty served up Victorian vibes in a white tiered dress and loads of jewelry.
Hailey Baldwin sizzled in a sheer embellished Georges Chakra jumpsuit. Werk Hailey!
Major keys were raining down once DJ Khaled arrived. His tux was dapper!
Britney Spears opted for a sultry Julien MacDonald Fall 2016 LBD with a sheer inset and asymmetric neckline.
There was nothing funny about comedian Sasheer Zamata’s red ruffle-accented C/MEO Collective crop top and mini skirt. She came to slay. Hot!
Heidi Klum flaunted her toned gams in a long-sleeve, colorful embellished number.
Prints and abundance were in abundance for Jeremy Scott and model Stella Maxwell. His designs are always so much fun.
Holland Roden was white hot in a floor-grazing cape and matching jumpsuit.
Selenis Leyva was on-trend in a long-sleeve, turtleneck crop top and high-waist pencil skirt.
Nicole Polizzi shimmered and sparkled in a sequin gown. Gorgeous!
A multi-hued, long-sleeve crochet Balmain piece was on the agenda for Hailee Steinfeld. This was fab.
Bell Biv Devoe made a surprise appearance. The guys were a bit casual for the event, but they looked great nonetheless!
A zigzag Louis Vuitton bomber was on the menu for Nick Jonas. Any artist who has a song named “Bacon” is alright with me.
Taylor Hill was pretty in pink, slipping on a one-shoulder Moschino sequin and sheer inset gown with an asymmetric hem.
Liliana Vazquez paired a black, strapless billowing top with a pair of printed wide-leg trousers.
Francesca Ramsey went bold in a orange layered gown, crown braid, and statement-making gold earrings. She’s gorgeous!
