MTV VMAs 2022 Red Carpet: From Taylor Swift to Blackpink, here are the best-dressed celebs
Black was the color of the night as many were seen killing it on the red carpet in the color
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY: The VMAs are back. One of music industry's most exciting nights, the MTV Video Music Awards 2022, took place on Sunday, August 28, at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. The stars who attended turned the red carpet into a crime scene, because they slayed. It looked like black was the color of the night as many were rocking it.
The awards this year were hosted by Nicki Minaj, Jack Harlow, and LL Cool J. From Taylor Swift's rhinestone-covered Oscar de la Renta marvel to Lil Nas X's Harris Reed ensemble, here is a list of the best looks from the big night.
This was Taylor Swift's first VMAs since 2019! The 'Evermore' star was up for five awards, including video of the year for 'All Too Well', that she performed. She was a star, literally, in a rhinestone-covered, silver chain Oscar de la Renta mini dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and her signature red lip and cat eye.
Lil Nas X
The 'Industry baby' singer is known for never attending quietly. This year, he donned a "heavy" feathered headpiece that became the center of attention at the VMAs. Nas showed off his abs in a black furry-feathered hoop skirt and the matching headpiece designed exclusively by Harris Reed.
The 32-year-old singer looked sensational wearing a black Vivienne Westwood number with a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit that showed off ample skin. The 'I'm a mess' singer had a pair of black platforms and left her blonde hair loose around her face. She topped off her look with black lipstick, a lip ring, and statement earrings.
'Bachelor Nation' star Tayshia Adams dazzled in a flowing thigh-high slit, strapless green dress by Tarik Ediz while accessorizing with Nicole Rose and Nickho Ray jewelry plus metallic sandals.
Sofia Carson, who is known for playing Evie, the daughter of the Evil Queen, in the Disney Channel Original Movie 'Descendants' certainly looked like she was channeling her dark side, leaving everyone speechless. She looked like the picture of elegance in a black Carolina Herrera column gown with a bustier and a cocoon-hood, along with David Yurman earrings.
Blackpink's Rose, Jennie, Jisoo and Lisa
Blackpink attended the big night in coordinating black outfits. Rose, Jennie, Jisoo and Lisa rocked the red carpet in dresses by Celine, Christian Dior, Chanel and Saint Laurent. They performed their recent hit 'Pink Venom' and this marks their first US award show performance.
Brazilian singer Anitta rose to national fame with the release of her single "Show das Poderosas" in 2013. In this Schiaparelli dress with a sequin heart appliqué over her chest and Tiffany & Co jewelry, Anitta exudes "the heart of Brazil."
The American singer and actress wore a sparkling Zuhair Murad dress, Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and a striking red lip. 'The shower' singer looked like royalty.
The 24-year-old singer and one half of R&B duo Chloe x Halle, left fans thristy in a sequinned silver custom Zigman. She completed her look with matching silver Jimmy Choo shoes, Just Desi earrings, and H Crowne bracelets.
Known for The CW teen drama series 'Riverdale' and for playing Annabelle in Lorene Scafaria's black comedy crime drama film 'Hustlers', Lili Reinhart took everyone's breath away in a sheer black lace Fendi number with polka dots. She was giving off 2000s emo vibes with a bit of Edgar Allan Poe thrown in.
