Who wore what (and WTF) at the VMAs.

BEST: Katy Perry

Her outfits throughout the evening may have been questionable, but this white constructed Stephanie Rolland number.

BEST: Hailey Baldwin

All that glitters.! Hailey might have missed out on a spot at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but she put on a brave face in this daring embellished plunging jumpsuit - which was also completely sheer - by Zuhair Murad.

Note: Only Nicki Minaj (and Kim Kardashian) can pull off hot pink latex.

BEST: Paris Jackson

The 18-year-old aspiring actress is showing off her California-girl inspired look in this dreamy boho number.

WORST: Vanessa Hudgens

If not for the sheer panelling, the former High School Musical star would have a hit on her hands in this Simone Rocha-inspired design.

WORST: Kesha

It's the first time we've seen Kesha in a long time and yes, we are thrilled to see her looking happy and healthy, this poofy design does nothing to flatter her.

WORST: Lorde

Same goes for Lorde, who also received the Little Bo Peep memo in advance.

BEST: Joan Smalls

A plunging tuxedo dress isn't exactly inspired, but paired with her severe bun and heels, Joan looks runway ready.

BEST: Olivia Munn

The rising star nailed the dress code. The embellished chainmail mini-dress by Nicolas Jebran and an on-trend dark lip is to die for!

WORST: Hailee Steinfeld

This outfit isn't offensive enough to be outrageous, it's just boring.

BEST: Diamond White

A bright yellow crop top and mini skirt should never work on anyone - but SO does on Diamond White.

BEST: Pink

Pink is a vision in burnt orange.

WORST: Alessandra Ambrosio

The Brazilian supermodel looks like the leader of a leggy alien invasion in a constricting Balmain piece.

Yara Shadidi

The Blackish star is earning her place as one of the best dressed young stars in Hollywood.

WORST: Heidi Klum

Heidi didn't want anyone to forget she was there, so took the sheer embellished jumpsuit trend up another notch.

BEST: Mel B

The former Spice Girl is sending a not-so-subtle message with her 'You Will Never Own Me' dress and it's paid off.

WORST: Noah Cyrus

Miley's little sister is definitely coming out of her shadow.

WORST: Millie Bobby Brown

The former singer needs to move her personal style past 2006.
