Making bold fashion statements in risqué gowns, the biggest celebrities from the music industry stepped it up in style at the MTV Video Music Awards 2019. The awards night is known for some of the most controversial style statements that go down history—right from Madonna's iconic "Boy Toy" look from the '80s to Gwen Stefani's daring tattoo look from the '90s and Nicki Minaj's see-through skirt from 2018 and the 36th installment of the awards show was no different this year.

With Swift's glitzy multi-colored Versace look to Camilla Cabello's plunging white satin gown headlining the glamorous night, vibrant red-hot and body-hugging suits were some of the top highlights. Lizzo's scarlet Moschino ensemble got many tongues wagging and so did Bebe Rexha's short-sleeve silver Christian Siriano dress with an asymmetrical hemline.
