The Best and Worst Dressed of the 2016 VMAS
Stars descended on New York City’s Madison Square Garden Sunday for the 2016 Video Music Awards. While some celebs impressed with their red carpet outfits, others turned heads for less than favorable reasons. See the best and worst dressed stars from the show, ahead.
BEST: Blue Ivy Carter and Beyoncé
Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Carter set the bar early on, strutting on the white carpet outside of New York City’s Madison Square Garden in ethereal metallic numbers.
BEST: Britney Spears
Britney Spears returned to the VMAs Sunday and continued her domination of the MTV awards show. The Glory singer looked gorgeous in an asymmetrical black gown with a split and a daring slashed neckline.
BEST: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Leave it to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to reintroduce red carpet cool. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star left little to the imagination in a black sheer minidress, topping off the look with lace-up heels and a wet hair look. West went for all-white, plugging “Famous” with his T-shirt.
BEST: Rupaul's Drag Race All Stars
The contestants of the second season of Rupaul’s Drag Race All Stars changed the game, recreating decades of iconic VMAs looks from Britney Spears and her snake to Lady Gaga and her meat dress.
BEST: Chance the Rapper
Chance the Rapper rocked overalls like very few can, pairing his khaki onesie with a white T-shirt, coordinated baseball hat, and sneakers.
BEST: Amber Rose
Amber Rose was chic in a black suit, offering a small peek at her black lace bra under the plunging blazer. She took her look to the next level with a pair of mirrored aviator shades.
BEST: Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj turned heads in a sexy navy gown. The Bao Tranchi dress featured cutouts at the chest and midsection, turning up the heat even futher with sheer panels at the hip.
Future looked sharp in a black-and-white ensemble, rocking a polka-dot blazer with his unbuttoned shirt and black jeans.
BEST: Hailey Baldwin
Hailey Baldwin dressed for the wild occasion in a Georges Chakra jumpsuit, adding hoop earrings and strappy heels to the sparkling black lace jumpsuit.
WORST: Ansel Elgort
Ansel Elgort took his VMAs look one step too far, opting for embellished pants, leather studded fingerless gloves, and a chain-adorned jacket.
WORST: Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon skipped the standard red carpet fare, instead going a bit too casual in a pair of white shorts, a white cut-off top, and white sneakers.
WORST: Sarah Barthel
While Sarah Barthel’s The Kooples blazer was on-point, the rest of her S&M-inspired outfit lacked subtlety.
While his “Make Me…” collaborator named a spot on the Best Dressed list, G-Eazy missed the mark, mixing an open velvet top with a pair of leather pants that would even make Ross Gellar cringe.
