Top 5 Looks of the Night

A night to remember Hollywood’s biggest names in music brought their fashion A-game to the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet, but a handful stood out among the rest.

Celebs flocked to the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Sunday, August 28, making VMAs style history in a bevy of designers — both new and iconic.

Their looks ranged from tiny mini dresses (cue Taylor Swift) to floor-length gowns featuring high-leg slits (à la Chloe Bailey).

The “Do It” singer brought the corset trend to the VMAs red carpet in a futuristic gown by Zigman. The design highlighted the musician’s hourglass shape and was finalized with a sultry high slit.

4) Graham
The 34-year old supermodel, who welcomed twins in January with Justin Ervin, looked stunning in a Houghton cutout dress. The sexy look hugged the A New Model author’s curves in all the right places.

3) Swift
Fans were stunned when the 32-year-old hitmaker walked on the red carpet in a high neck, silver mini dress by Oscar de la Renta paired with matching glittery sandals. The jeweled frock was a trendy selection as it perfectly fell under the “naked” dress aesthetic due to the look’s sheer finish.

2) Anitta
Anitta was a shining example of realness in Schiaparelli. The “Envolver” singer, 29, wowed in the corset design that featured an asymmetrical construction that covered the left side of her upper body with an intricate net. The musician looked racy but elegant with her soft glam, pulled back hairdo and soft glam.
