If there’s one award show that celebrities go all out for, it’s the MTV Video Music Awards — most commonly referred to as the VMAs.
Hosted by Keke Palmer, this weekend, the network is celebrating the first-ever go-round of the momentous event in a socially distant manner (i.e. without a crowd or red carpet). So what better time to reminisce about the incredible (and not-so-incredible) fashion of the event through the years? From “Like A Virgin”-inspired LWDs to high-fashion gowns, nothing has been off-limits for our fave celebrities.
Here, we’ve rounded up the most memorable red carpet moments, from Lady Gaga’s meat dress to Miley Cyrus’s romantic goth gown, to Britney Spears’ lace mini. And who could forget when Jaden and Willow Smith graced the VMAs red carpet in ripped jeans and overalls? Ahead, scroll through the most talked-about looks since the show’s inception in 1984!
