2014 MTV Video Music Awards: Style Spotlight

  • Nicki Minaj

    Nicki Minaj

    Nicki Minaj showed up to the red carpet wearing the skin of the snake who bit one of her dancers, and looked so good while doing it. (Revenge is sweet, especially when it sparkles.) Although this look is a far, tame cry from some of her previous award show outfits, the Saint Laurent dress showed off Nicki’s best assets. 

  • Taylor Swift

    If Taylor Swift runs out of ex-boyfriends to write songs about, she could easily switch to a career as a runway model. The leggy country singer turned pop star stepped out in a Mary Katrantzou printed romper. Although some believed that Swift’s romper was hiding a secret message, others were way too distracted by her stems to even notice.

  •  Jennifer Lopez

    Jennifer Lopez

    The 45-year-old mother of twins showed up looking ten times better than most of the 20-somethings at the award show this year. J-Lo donned a gorgeous crystallized gown from Charbel Zoe with cut-outs and a sky-high slit. Rookie starlets, take note! 

  • Iggy Azalea

    Taking a cue from her "Booty" buddy, up-and-coming hip-hop heavyweight Iggy Azalea wore a silver metallic cut-out gown from Atelier Versace. Although her hairstyle was way less than "Fancy, her shiny dress really popped on the red carpet.

  • Rita Ora

    Rita Ora

    Another singer who had legs and wasn’t afraid to use them was Rita Ora. With a plunging neckline and a sky high slit, this silk number from Donna Karan Atelier took major guts to pull off. Luckily, the singer has already proved how gutsy she is. Remember when she served the good of mankind by ripping off Zac Efron’s shirt? For that, and for this dress, we applaud you, Rita.

  • Kesha


    Ever since she dropped the dollar sign from her name, Kesha has been classing up red carpets with her new, grown-up look. She didn’t disappoint last night, wearing this gorgeous floor-length gown that complimented her rainbow tresses. Whether she’s rocking a dollar sign and caked-on makeup from last night, or showing off her Hollywood glamour, Kesha will always be our favorite "Animal!"

  • Gwen Stefani

    Gwen Stefani

    In a sea of teeny boppers and unfamiliar faces, it was a joy and a relief to see Gwen Stefani on the red carpet. For the first time since 2005, the singer/designer/mother rocked the red carpet as if no time had passed, wearing a hot pink ensemble from her own L.A.M.B. line. Now, if only she had performed instead of Ariana Grande...

  • Katy Perry

    Katy Perry

    When discussing the VMAs, it’s hard not to include the iconic duo that was Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Just when we thought the glory days of the early 2000’s were behind us, Katy Perry did something extraordinary. She and her date, rapper Riff Raff arrived in a Lamborghini donning matching full denim outfits from Versace as an ode to Justin and Britney. Whether you loved or hated this look, it received the Britney Jean seal of approval!


Winning songs weren't the only hits at the VMAs! 

For the past two decades, MTV has been rewarding and showcasing our favorite recording artists at the MTV Video Music Awards. Celebrities have used this event to showcase some of their most outrageous yet stylish looks on the red carpet.

The VMAs red carpet has hosted numerous iconic looks, from Justin and Britney's full denim ensemble to Lady Gaga’s meat dress. This year was no different, however, the red carpet looked relatively normal for a change. (Perhaps the absence of Lady Gaga had something to do with it?)

Fresh faces like Rita Ora, Charli XCX, and the ladies of Fifth Harmony went with funky, retro pieces. Some of the more seasoned celebs, such as Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani, opted for more classic, sultry, and glamorous looks. But in true VMAs fashion, there was no shortage of glitter!

Above are some of the best looks from last night’s show!
