Never failing to deliver glitz, glamour, and that extra dose of drama, this year’s VMAs continues its legacy as the most sensational event on the calendar. But the biggest music event of the year isn’t just about the tunes — the VMA red carpet has seen equally show-stopping ensembles (remember Lady Gaga’s meat dress?). 

It was an eclectic mix of edge and elegance this year — Queen Bey stole the show in a skintight sequinned number, while Kim Kardashian opted for dressed down sultriness with a slinky semi-sheer dress. On the very same carpet, there was serious play on print. See: 2 Chainz's beaded accents and Jaden Smith’s masterful grasp on layers. If there’s one thing we’ve gleaned from this lineup, it’s that there are no rules when it comes to style.
