We can always count on the stars attending the VMAs to impress us with some pretty interesting fashion choices and they’ve certainly delivered this year. From show-stopping sheer gowns to dazzling glittering looks, we’re bringing you three red carpet trends that stole the show at this ceremony.

See-Through Gowns

See-through dresses have been ruling Hollywood for quite some time, and they’ve been going stronger than ever at the VMAs. We’ve seen everyone from Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, and Selena Gomez to Megan Thee Stallion, Tiffany Haddish, and Karol G put their own twist on the sheer trend.

Make It Shine

Dresses with sparkly and glittering details were shining brighter than ever at the VMAs this year. Cardi B and Olivia Rodrigo have given us some of the ceremony’s most dazzling looks, followed by Shakira, Dove Cameron, Saweetie, and many more.

Paint It Black

Black dresses with a twist have a habit of making their way into pretty much every major award show these days, and MTV VMAs were no exception. Taylor Swift, Dove Cameron, and Megan Thee Stallion put this trend on the map, but we’ve also spotted several edgy faux leather designs, worn by Demi Lovato, Bebe Rexha, Coco Jones, and Måneskin’s Victoria De Angelis.
