Sometimes Nicki Minaj’s red carpet outfits are, well, outrageously daring, but this fierce animal-print Saint Laurent mini was a major VMAs favorite. She made it work with nude platform pumps and next to no jewels.
Style icon Jamie Chung spent the evening in a sleeveless and heavily embellished Versace design with Stuart Weitzman sandals. While everything about this outfit is on-point, we wouldn’t mind seeing her hottie fiancé Bryan Greenberg on her arm.
Prior to her sparkly unitard moment (feel free to replay it 34,565 times today), Bey floated down the carpet in a long-sleeve Nicolas Jebran Couture gown with beaded details and patterned netted panels. The dress has a lot going on, but Beyonce can always handle elevated glam—hence the dramatic chandelier earrings.
