The VMAs never disappoint. Whether you’re looking for pretty looks, WTF moments or lots of nakedness, the show always delivers. The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards had its share of all of the above. You knew host Miley Cyrus would have the naked front covered but a few other celebs helped her out with that. And what could be more WTF than a 3-foot tall cone hairstyle? Thankfully the show wasn’t all wardrobe-malfunctions-waiting-to-happen and head-scratching looks. There were plenty of gorgeous outfits too.
Take a look at the best-dressed celebs at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards:
It’s not often that you would say that a baby pink outfit is fierce but Demi Lovato‘s pastel pink dress actually is. The illusion dress has an armor-like design and it fits her perfectly. Also note how Demi managed to find the perfect nude heel. That isn’t easy to do.
Based on some of the things Nicki Minaj has worn previous years, you would have expected her to go the OTT route. Thankfully she went for the simple and very sexy route. The gold dress enhances her skin tone and it is tailored to an inch of its life. It also has a rather elegant vibe to it which is surprising considering how sheer the crotch is.
Lily Aldridge, aka Taylor Swift squad member #23, proved that you can’t go wrong with a black dress. Her gown is very simple and she kept her styling to a minimum but it is still a standout look thanks to the plunging neckline and side cutouts.
Most of Taylor Swift‘s girl squad opted for dresses but Taylor chose to completely ignore the matching dress code. She kept her beloved crop top but surprised everyone with the sporty houndstooth joggers and dramatic eyeliner. It’s a new direction and it will be interesting to see if this is a one-off look or we’ll be seeing her in more sports luxe ensembles.
The Kardashians are fans of neutral looks so it was nice to see Kourtney Kardashian try something different with this summery pink jumpsuit. Kourtney is petite but this outfit made her look model tall.
Supermodels can pull off outfits that the rest of us can’t. Case in point: Gigi Hadid‘s marigold dress. It looks dangerously close to a swimsuit and matching caftan but Gigi managed to make it look appropriate for the red carpet and very chi. The rich yellow is also perfect with her golden tan.
You can always count on Vanessa Hudgens to bring the boho to the red carpet. This blush dress with floral appliques and multiple accessories makes you want to dig out your boho looks from the 2000’s.

Fringe is a popular trend right now but it is one that is best in moderation. Ciara would have been wise to have ditched the fringe cape/dress and just kept the shoes. It is also a good idea to avoid fringe around your neck, especially if it goes down to your knees since the likelihood of choking yourself is very high. Health and safety before fashion, people.
There was lots of speculation about Miley Cyrus was going to wear to the VMAs. It looks like she decided to go with a Showgirl Barbie look with a dash of futuristic football player. Is it creative? Yes. Could you wear it on the street without getting arrested for public indecency? Nope.
Hopefully Rita Ora was one of the last ones on the
red multicolored carpet because they won’t have to worry about vacuuming it since her skirt will have already cleaned it. If the skirt was the same fabric as the top with feather accents or the feathers were trimmed down, this would have been a lot better.
Poor Serayah was another victim of when bad fringe happens to good people. This slashed dress looks like a DIY project that went too far. Yes, she’ll get a good breeze but there is waaaay too much going on. The caged sandals don’t help matters.
Chrissy Teigen‘s dress is a wardrobe malfunction just waiting to happen. Seriously, how do you tape that? The problem with it isn’t that it is risque, it’s that the dress isn’t that great. It feels like they spent all the time working on the detail on the top and never got to the bottom so they thought the best way to fix it was to distract people with the sexy sheer side panels and solid strip going over the crotch.
What is there to say? If you show up on the red carpet like this, you know you’re going to end up on a worst-dressed list. On a positive note, it’s safe to say that Z LaLa took home the awards for biggest disco ball dress, longest eyelashes to not be worn on your eyes and craziest cone hairstyle.
