The VMAs: Best Dressed, What Miley Wore, And Our Favourite Hair Styles

attends the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on August 30, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

When it comes to award ceremonies, the MTV Video Music Awards is the most frustrating. The VMAs red carpet is a disaster to discern because of all the probably-still-teenagers who are being pimped out by record companies. Flash in the far-from-Versace-atelier pan is how you can dismiss most of their careers. Also, this is no Met Gala. Remember Justin and Britney in matching denim? VMAs. The more attention seeking the gown, the better. Which is why a best dressed list is a difficult thing to attempt. But attempt it we shall.

Best Dressed

NYLO VMAS

Nylo = what Nasty Gal could have been. We’re liking this entire sexy nineties ensemble.

Emily Ratajkowski and Vanessa Hudgens VMAS

Emily Ratajkowski accessorised with a puppy.

Nicki Minaj VMAs

Nicki Minaj went for showstopper.

FKA twigs VMAs

FKA Twigs channelled a sexy Victorian medium on her downtime.

Taylor Swift Vmas

Paddy Power don’t offer odds anymore on whether Taylor Swift will wear a crop top or not.

Cara Delevingne VMAs

Dunno if Cara looks like she wants to be there, but we like this classy Lipsy-esque get-up.

Eva Doll VMAs

Eva Doll’s white jumpsuit and blunt hair just works for us. She looks like she’s going to have fun in that outfit. She looks like she’s going to carefree when red wine hits the fabric.

Eva Doll VMAs

Again.

Taylor Brought her Bad Blood crew.

Kanye West? Outfit of the night.

With those pockets, Kim got landed with looking after phones the entire night.

What Miley Wore

Miley is often described as divisive, but we fail to see what’s so damn divisive about a woman who loves her body and herself and wears what she want. Here’s a rundown of all the absolutely mental and, in a way, loveable stuff our Miley threw on for her presenting gig at the awards.

Miley Cyrus VMAs versace

This is Versace, just in case you were ready to roll the eyes.

Can hot pink be an autumn trend instead of mustard because that latter colour is going to ruin all our palettes.

The girl loves her iconography and sequins.

Not slagging an outfit that has a beautiful message.

If Miley wants to make more money she could endorse a razor company.

Trousers.

Best Hair

Greer Grammer, me neither, is an actress who played it cute and safe on the costuming front but became a Pinterest pin up with this post-war darling hair.

NYLO VMAS

Nylo makes a case for ignoring any entreaties for mermaid hair and reverting back to the copper strands your 14-year-old self yearned for. Also, a plus on the fuchsia lip and mis-matched gold jewellery.

madison beer VMAS

Madison Beer, probably not her real name, gives the dying era of American Tailoring a final Hunger Games salute.

Vanessa hudgens VMAS

Vanessa Hudgens is our winter bridal inspo as of now.

?Who is Niko Sacks?? My teenage self.
