We can always count on the MTV VMAs to bring countless dramatic red carpet looks our way and this year’s ceremony certainly delivered. Our favorite celebrities hit the red carpet in a bunch of show-stopping outfits and here are five that stole the show.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift was MTV VMAs’ shiniest star this year—both figuratively and literally. She hit the red carpet in a glittering Oscar de la Renta mini dress, dripping with dramatic crystal embellishments.

Chlöe Bailey

Taylor Swift wasn’t the only one to hit the red carpet in a shimmering silver dress. Chlöe Bailey also embraced this trend and put on a glamorous display in her metallic Zigman gown.


Lizzo is no stranger to dramatic red carpet looks and she made quite a splash with her voluminous midnight-blue haute couture gown by Jean Paul Gaultier.


Dramatic black dresses were all the rage at this year’s MTV VMAs and Lizzo wasn’t the only one wearing one. Members of Blackpink hit the red carpet all dressed in black. It’s up to you to decide which of these four outfits by Celine, Dior, Chanel, and Saint Laurent is your favorite.

Sabrina Carpenter

Carpenter convinced us that bright florals can look quite classy with her elegant Moschino gown. She elevated the look by wearing a black Jennifer Behr headband.
