Chloe Fineman arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards wearing what we can only describe as a blanket. If only we looked half as good when rolling out of bed! The Saturday Night Live star walked the 2022 VMA black carpet in a silver and chrome padded dress by threeASFOUR. She elevated her look with holographic sandals and chrome nails.
Fineman’s outfit is most likely an homage to the moon man — the award ceremony’s trophy mascot. At least, we hope it is. The internet has compared her look to a sleeping bag, a duvet, or Lizzie McGuire’s igloo dress.
Jennifer Lopez, 2004
Jennifer Lopez wore a strapless dress in different shades of brown to the 2004 VMAs. We don't know if this was one of her best looks, but the outfit stood out, alright! How could it not with those draped panels, sequins, and bandage-style bodice?
As if the busy outfit wasn't enough, the star chose to accessorize the outfit with feathered slingbacks, a wide-brimmed hat, chandelier earrings, a loud purse, and bracelets on both wrists!
Lil Nas X, 2022
Did someone say drama? Because Lil Nas X brought all of it to the red carpet at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. Although dubbed the "industry baby," the rapper was anything but doe-eyed at the VMAs. He arrived in a pair of shiny black pants, a glittering feather-cage overskirt, and a matching headpiece, instantly making an unconventional statement.
The look came together with gorgeous diamonds from De Beers. He looks like he stepped straight out of the sets of “Black Panther.” Known for his boundary-breaking sense of style, the rapper, once again, did not disappoint!
Kamie Crawford, 2022
At the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, celebrities shone in glittering, head-turning outfits on the red carpet. Kamie Crawford, SI Swimsuit model and MTV's "Catfish" host, was also in attendance, decked out in a full Barbiecore ensemble.
Crawford looked stunning in a textured pink Hanifa gown featuring an off-shoulder detail and a cut-out across the waist and back. Crawford revealed that when her stylist showed her this Hanifa dress, she knew she had found her perfect VMA look. Plus, Hanfia was the brainchild of Anifa Mvuemba, a Congolese designer from Crawford's hometown. It was a no-brainer.
Monet x Change, 2022
We can't get enough of Ms. Monet's avant-garde look at the 2022 VMAs. The eyeshadow in technicolor, the flush on her cheeks, the accessories! All of it adds up and comes together beautifully. She makes us believe in cloud hair and even gives us reasons to try it out ourselves.
Her flawless ensemble was arguably one of the best at the 2022 VMAs. We bet this outfit will continue giving makeup and fashion goals for years to come.
