The MTV Video Music Awards red—err, pink—carpet is arguably one of the most exciting of all the awards show carpets. Why? Because the stars basically do whatever the hell they want. Some take major risks while others keep things cool and casual.
On tonight’s carpet, we saw a little bit of everything. While there were plenty of sequins and bedazzled frocks to go around, we were also in the presence of denim, bikini tops, and, well, even a full-on devil costume. (Like we said, risks are taken.)
Check out our favorite looks—which cover the full spectrum from laid-back to full-on glamazon—from tonight’s event, below.
