While the VMAs were undeniably all about the performances, videos, and Beyonce, there was one more important factor from the last night’s show: the fashion. The VMAs have always been famous for showcasing some pretty outrageous and iconic fashion choices (i.e. Britney Spears and her flesh-toned body suit) and this year was no exception. The VMA red carpet was full interesting fashion choices. Some were nostalgic and paid homage to iconic outfits from the past while others left us scratching our heads. Here are all the VMA outfits worth talking about.
Is Ariana Grande auditioning to be the newest cast member of Sons of Anarchy?
Chloë Grace Moretz looks like shes attending the Republican Convention rather than the VMAs
Taylor Swift had probably one of the most talked about outfits from the night. Her leotard brought up a lot of criticism and comparisons. Here she is as a peacock.
Taylor reminded this person of the best part of childhood.
When I see Taylor Swift's VMA outfit…I flashback to eating Campbell's alphabet soup trying to spell words… #fireyourstylist

Is Charli XCX reviving Jersey Shore?
Demi Lovato was clearly inspired by Avril Lavigne
Nicki Minaj’s did her best Poison Ivy impression for her Anaconda performance
Jordin Sparks and boyfriend Jason Derulo must have a Kim Kardashian lookbook
Amber Rose drew her inspiration for her revealing dress from Rose McGowan’s 1998 VMA dress.
I’m assuming Jessie J is coming out with a line of drapes and thus used her VMA dress to promote them.
All these outfits were great, but Katy Perry had one of the best VMA outfits of all time. The singer and rapper Riff Raff paid homage to one of the most iconic outfits of all time. The two recreated Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s matching denim dress and suit from the 2001 American Music Awards.
As if this outfit couldn’t get any more perfect, Katy got approval from Britney herself, who tweeted the singer her thoughts on the dress.
.@katyperry Just when I thought the denim dress had retired….you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb ;)
