This May Be The Best VMAs Red Carpet That We've Seen To Date

When you're in the midst of award season, you forget how much you miss it when it's gone. Between the months of November and February, there's basically a star-studded red carpet every two weeks, ending in the mecca that is the Oscars on February 9th. But while we're still months away from anything close to the major award shows, there is one celeb-filled red carpet in our midst that's sure to fill the void.

Tonight marks MTV's big night, or as we know it, the VMAs. The Video Music Awards are always fun, ~fresh~ and full of big names. This year's celebration, however, is shaping up to be bigger than ever before. For starters, everyone's favourite fashion designer, Marc Jacobs, is being awarded with the coveted MTV Fashion Trailblazer Award for his role in shaping the way today’s musicians dress. Then there's Missy Elliot's much deserved Village Vanguard Award (who else still thinks about that golf-inspired Adidas 'fit she wore to the 2003 VMAs?). Suffice to say, we're expecting a night of fashion, music and celebrity drama that will last us well into November.

While we're excited for Lizzo to perform, the J-Sisters to dance, and a post-break up Miley sighting, what we really can't wait for is the red carpet. Will Sophie Turner show up in Louis Vuitton, or throw us for a loop like she did at the Met Gala? Will Chloe and Halle walk the carpet in matching 'fits? And what awe-inspiring look will VMA alum J.Lo wear this year? Only time will tell.

Stay tuned as we count down all the best dressed celebs from the VMAs red carpet in the slideshow ahead.

Hailee Stanfeld in Aadnevik



Wearing red on the red carpet is never an easy feat, but Hailee Steinfeld proves that it can be done — and done well.

Charm La'Donna



Charm La’Donna’s looking more like an Academy Award than a Video Music Award astronaut — and honestly, we are so for it.

Gigi Hadid in Tom Ford & Are You Am I



Gigi Hadid might not’ve walked the red carpet alongside beau, Tyler Cameron, but she did show up looking hotter than ever in one of this fall’s biggest trends: corset tops (and Tom Ford trousers).

Big Sean



Big Sean's velour sweat suit is giving us serious deja vu of retro VMAs red carpets. But unlike the pastel athleisure of VMAs past, this one’s all class.

Camila Cabello



Is Camila Cabello giving us wedding bell rumours in this white criss-cross gown? Probably not, but hey, a Shawn Mendes stan can dream.

Bella Hadid



Newly single Bella Hadid showed off a post-break up glow-up alongside her equally-as-stylish sis in an ab-barring crop top and matching skirt.

Lil Nas X in Christian Cowan



From the cropped sequin blazer to the flowing lace sleeves, Lil Nas X didn’t hold back on the red carpet tonight.

FKA Twigs in Sophia Webster



We never know what FKA Twigs is going to pull out on the red carpet, but as per usual, she never disappoints.

Marc Jacobs



The one and only Marc Jacobs doesn't do fashion half-assed — ever. So it goes without saying that he'd show up to receive his MTV Fashion Trailblazer Award looking as stylish as ever. Donning a perfectly tailored olive-coloured suit with a pair of bold red boots, this look is only getting us more excited for his NYFW show on the 11th.

Queen Latifah in Sergio Hudson



Orange you glad that the Queen herself just arrived at the VMAs red carpet in this fringe-detail suit?

Taylor Swift in Versace



In true T. Swift fashion, she threw us for a loop with an oh-so-early arrival to the VMAs red carpet. And boy did she arrive in style. Wearing a custom Versace blazer dress and sky high Louboutin boots, if you weren’t a Lover of the pop phenomenon before, you will be after seeing this look.

Keke Palmer in Yousef Aljasmi



Keke Palmer predicted this look in her 2007 bop, "Bottoms Up". You know the one where she said, "you know you're hot so let everybody know?"

Megan Thee Stallion



Megan Thee Stallion just brought a new meaning to hot girl summer with this geometric ensemble. From the leather bra + panty set to the matching blazer and boots, there's nothing not hot about the singer's red carpet look.

Lizzo in Moschino



As the one red carpet sighting we were looking forward to most, Lizzo didn't disappoint. In a dazzling Old Hollywood-esque sequin gown by Moschino, this is one look we won't soon forget.

Ebonee Davis



On top of being an international supermodel and an activist, Ebonee Davis sure can dress. A point proven true by this watercolour tie-dyed slip dress and a matching head wrap.

Zara Larsson in Giambattista Valli Couture



The camera couldn't handle Swedish pop singer, Zara Larsson's dress — let alone fit it in a single frame.

Quin



Quin looks as sensual as the R&B tracks she sings in this all-black frock caftan and matching chain link bikini set.

Shawn Mendes in Dolce & Gabbana



If we can't have Shawn Mendes IRL, at least we have this photo of him in a forest green Dolce & Gabbana suit (and a sheer AF undershirt).

Alyson Stoner



In honour of Missy Elliot's long-overdue Village Vanguard Award, one of her most epic back-up dancers came out to support (and apparently shut the VMAs down during Missy's performance). But while her dancing blew us away, it was her look on the red carpet that we'll be talking about long past the show's final hour.

Alison Brie’s taking a cue from Megan Thee Stallion and bringing us her hottest look yet.
