Back to the best moments, we’ll start with Nicki Minaj; the goddess before accepting his Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award performed some of her hits but the best was yet again the “Super Freaky Girl.” After having won the case, we expected to see more of Depp, but his moon man landing in Prudential Center was not enough. Lizzo, our “About Damn Time” badass woman recreated the 2015 VMAs by doing a Nicki Minaj impression of the rapper’s infamous callout to Miley Cyrus, no pun intended. Harry Styles couldn’t be there, we missed him but made an appearance to take out a major award “Album of the Year.” Well, he deserves it!

Ah, it was such a fun night and surely made our Sunday better. Moving on, we have picked out some of the best-dressed icons from the night. Don’t worry, the whereabouts of their attires are also mentioned. Save it for fashion inspiration later!
The star of this year’s MTV VMAs, Taylor Swift walked in like a shining star. She wore a halter neck mini dress, blowing up with rhinestones, this V-neckline asymmetrical dress was everything you desire. Swift wore this over a nude-toned bodycon outfit and looked blazing hot. The brand she wore is Oscar de la Renta and paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. The ankle-strap stilettos are from Christian Louboutin. Not just the attire, she hands down won the best beauty award too. The winged liner with the latest gem’s eye trend looked killer. It’s definitely a Yay for us!

We have never questioned her fashion, how can we now? Sabrina Carpenter walked the red carpet in a Moschino gown. It was indeed a daring choice as the dress was a cutout gown. Covered with colorful sequin flowers lit up the red carpet. The hottest part of the dress was the symmetrical cutouts on both hips, along with a teardrop-shaped cutout at her sternum. The makeup look complemented the dress perfectly. She even opted for a Jennifer Behr headband and Yun Yun Sun jewelry. Even though she was looking forward to Blackpink’s performance, our motive of attending was successful after having seen her in the flower embellished dress!

Becky G just didn’t look like a true goddess but also wore a tarot Card-inspired Zuhair Murad Dress. She represented symbolism and sequins. The floor-length gown included details inspired by tarot card interpretations that included the sun, the ace of swords, the lovers, the chariot, and justice. The light gold sequin background has our hearts. She looked phenomenal with a straight neckline and tank-style straps. When she turned, our jaws dropped by witnessing the parallel rectangular cutouts on the sides. For footwear, she wore Jimmy Choo’s Max platform sandals. As for her makeup, the red lipstick was the highlight with blowout hair and soft waves.

Even though her outfit didn’t not sparkle or make the most hype, the way she carried it cloaked us all in dark glamor. She wore a black fitted sleeveless gown with a sweetheart sheer neckline and an oversize hood by Carolina Herrera. Her makeup was kept simple yet dewy totally complimented by her attire. Along with this, she accessorized with a diamond earring, which all girls wished they had, and oversized star-shaped earring studs by David Yurman. The ‘Purple Hearts’ fame singer won the Best New Artist award and performed during the pre-show. Not to miss, we also loved the hair bun, it was neat and matched the subtle look.
