You can't talk about the VMAs without talking fashion on the red carpet. It looks like sheer and sparkling outfits were part of the agenda. Check out the amazing Filipinas strutted on the carpet and understood the assignment.

Saweetie slayed in her silver Valentino dress, bringing a little of the old Hollywood vibe to the carpet.

Da baddest of them all Bretman Rock channeled his inner Aaliyah by wearing the same exact Roberto Cavalli dress she wore 21 years ago at the 2000 VMAs.

Olivia stunned in a vintage Atelier Versace that made her look like the dreamiest mermaid.

Bella Poarch brought out spooky szn in a black lace jumpsuit with flared pants and a long train or is it a cape? Either way, we're here for it!
