The MTV VMAs is one of the biggest events in the music calendar, celebrating the best music videos of the year.
The 2018 edition took place last night at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, attended by some of the most famous and beautiful people in the world.
With the eyes of the world on those attending, it’s a good time to dress to the nines and impress in the sartorial stakes.
However, many celebs seemed to have sacked their stylists, showing up in Halloween fancy dress, outfits reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie and a lot of skin on show.
Pop star Nicki Minaj is known for her daring dress sense, and it was no different on the VMA carpet where she showed up wearing a leotard and sheer skirt combination.
Picking up the award for Best Hip-Hop video, Nicki wore a cream bodysuit with an arrow-detailed belt and choker collar.
Her attire was an unusual choice, but not as unusual as Amber Rose, Kanye West’s former girlfriend, who rocked up to the ceremony in a tight, latex devil costume.
Bright red in colour, the sexy yet shocking ensemble was made up of a fitted bodysuit, fishnet tights, elbow length gloves and a devil mask – finished off with a fetish whip.
Queen of Pop Madonna also went down the costume route, giving off a tribal feel in a multicoloured, patterned kimono.
On her head, she wore an unusual spiked headpiece, with rows of hanging jewellery around her neck and her blonde hair in two plaits.
One celeb that decided to completely cover up rather than put herself on display was actress Blake Lively, whose white, long-sleeved, high-necked dress was reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie.
Trailing on the floor, the detailed dress was covered by a white fitted suit jacket, which featured structured shoulders.
From all-white to crazy colours, superstar Jennifer Lopez wore a host of outfits on the night, but she finished the awards in a blue, gold and white jumpsuit that resembled a pair of curtains or a Persian rug.
Showing off a lot of bust, the skintight jumpsuit was cinched in at the waist by n oversized black belt and accessorised with a yellow gold chain and black sunglasses.
Model and Rob Kardashian’s ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna also opted for chains, but instead of being around her neck they were draped all over her body – forming a dress.
Pink in colour the dress exposed Chyna’s midriff and chest, with her chain bra and silver underwear on display.
Nicky Hilton Rothschild was also in attendance at the NYC event, with the former party girl choosing a white and black ruffly, tiered dress for the occasion.
On the sleeves were oversized black bows, and the dress was sheer in parts.
Australian singer Iggy Azalea also didn’t impress in the fashion stakes, turning up to the event in a black and pink get up with thigh-high boots.
Her outfit featured a tight, leather-like black bustier and wide pink, black and white skirt, which flared out at each side and was covered in diamond patterns.
