Did anyone get it right for the VMAs red carpet? The short answer is no - come enjoy the weird and wacky fashion with us!

Liam Payne

Post-Cheryl, the former One Direction singer has perfected the 'waiter just off the late shift' look.

Blac Chyna

You have to admire Blac Chyna's commitment to staying in the spotlight, even if it means losing half her body weight - and her clothes.

Amber Rose

Too obvious. Next!

Blake Lively

Blake Lively try-too-hard tour de suits in the last week don't evoke the same effortless approach to fashion she thinks it does.

Anna Kendrick

This metallic multi-fabric feathered mini is a dream!

Rita dressed the VMA part in a completely sheer dress. It's certainly interesting.

Olivia Munn

This sparkling David Koma dress is certainly striking, but it's not exactly VMA appropriate.

Winnie Harlow

Just the right amount of sheer: arguably, one of the best dressed on the night in this Zuhair Murad dress.

Ariana Grande

Ariana's main accessory these days is fiancé Pete Davison and boy, did she wear him well.

Jennifer Lopez

Best dressed as always. We're not worthy.

Kylie Jenner

This Tom Ford tuxedo dress exudes the perfect mogul persona in the latest chapter of the Kylie re-brand.

Nicky Hilton

How can one justify this choice when they are a literal billionaire?

Audrina's style is still stuck in 2009, which is also where The Hills belongs.

Karlie Kloss

This fun Elie Saab gown is undeniably beautiful, but I feel like we've already seen this look a hundred times on Karlie.
