Over the years, the MTV Video Music Awards have given us so many iconic looks. They’re a place to get glam while also having fun — and nailing down the right look can help to cement your place in the fashion mags everywhere. Unfortunately, not every celeb rocked the red carpet. These are the biggest fashion fails from the night.
The “Good Ones” singers dress looks like it was made using leftover fabric scraps. Considering she’s had some way better looks at the Brit Awards and other red carpet events recently, this just fell flat.
The elder sis in the Chloe x Halle duo wore a crinkly silver dress that looked like a ball of tinfoil. The singer made her VMAs debut with a performance of her new single “Have Mercy” and we would have preferred a fun and sultry look from her to match the vibe of her performance.
Rita Ora’s black ensemble is giving us witchy vibes, but it’s a month too early to be bringing the spooky energy.

Kacey Musgraves performed her heartbreaking new single “Star-Crossed” in a stunning white dress at the VMAs to support the release of her new album. We wish she would have rocked that same look on the red carpet instead of this bright ensemble.
We know being campy and quirky is Doja Cat’s brand, but the “Woman” singer and VMAs hosts strange outfit with the chair on her head (?) was just plain weird.
The Jennifer’s Body star served body on the red carpet in a sheer number that drew a lot of online criticism for it’s “barely there” aesthetic. But honestly? We kinda love it. While the actor will certainly land on a lot of worst dressed lists for this, we think it’s sexy and totally on brand for the former Transformers star.
