Last night in Toronto, the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards took place to honor the best in music. The awards ceremony was held outdoors and resembled a huge street party—a welcome relief from the conventional theater format—and included performances from the likes of Nick Jonas, Fifth Harmony, Tegan & Sara, and more.
In addition to a night of music, it was a night of many costume changes, with host Gigi Hadid rocking a total of six (amazing) looks. However, even more interesting were the beauty looks.
Hair with serious height, whether in the form of a braid, ponytail, or topknot, seemed to be the trend of the evening. However, our favorite beauty look of the night came in the form of the very special LGBT pride tribute made by July Talk’s Leah Fay and her dancers.
We rounded up the 11 coolest looks of the evening, from fishtail braids to undereye glitter. Click through the gallery below to check out our picks.
