2018 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on August 21, 2018

Kittens, we’ve shone our loving Spotlight of Judgment on several of the more notable, discussable, possibly even disastrous if not downright offensive attendees of this little clown car of celebrity fashion, but it’s time to put the rest of these attention-seekers to bed. And by that we mean let’s judge all of their ridiculous outfits really quickly and totally unfairly. Ready? GO!


Amandla Stenberg in Prada

Cute, but if we’re being perfectly blunt, it looks a little like Zendaya cosplay.

Anna Kendrick in Ralph & Russo Couture

Oof. Sweetie.

Everything she wears is either bland, awkward or ill-suited to her. Guess which one (or two!) this is.

Asher Angel

Very cute.

Bryce Vine

Also cute, but we’d argue that the proportions aren’t working and the shoes just don’t go.

Camila Cabello in Oscar de la Renta

It’s fine if a little prom-y for the VMAs.

Dascha Polanco in Layana Aguilar

There’s that tacky gal we’ve come to know and … cringe at. She was doing pretty okay there for a while, but this is a glorious return to form for her. Somehow she manages to find looks that most drag queens would turn down for being too much.

Frankie Grande

And speaking of too much…

We suppose we should be grateful. This is extremely toned-down for him.

Gucci Mane

Love the jacket but nothing fits quite as well as it should.

Iggy Azalea in Fausto Puglisi

These are pretty hot pieces, but on her, they come off a little try-hard. At the very least, the boots and dress should split up and see other items.

Jasmine Sanders in Dundas


Kylie Jenner in Tom Ford

Bland and weirdly aging. Sure, she’s a new mom, but girlfriend’s still only 21 years old.

Lenny Kravitz

We’d tell him to never change but that would be redundant.

Maddie Ziegler

Grease 2 cosplay.

Madison Beer in Raisa & Vanessa

Maybe we’re being too literal in our thinking but there’s a weird disconnect between the ’80s silhouette up top and the ’70s silhouette on the bottom. It doesn’t quite work.

Millie Bobby Brown in Rosie Assoulin

It’s different and has that quirky high-fashion feel, but like so much of her public ensembles, it comes off mature.



Morgan Saint

Weirdly shaped and oversized garments are all the rage among the youth!



Nico Tortorella

You spelled “AMENDMENT” wrong, you ridiculous attention whore.

Olivia Munn in David Koma

She knows her brand and she’s sticking to it, which is good because she’s really only passing through for pictures, essentially.



Rita Ora in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture

Credit where it’s due: this is pretty fabulous. She makes a lot of seriously questionable style decisions in her public life so it’s kind of refreshing to see her working something that actually looks pretty great on her.

Sabrina Carpenter in Atelier Versace

Sexy Halloween costume.

Shawn Mendes in Paul Smith

Downright chic. He can just barely get away with having that many buttons undone on his shirt.



Shay Mitchell in Nicolas Jebran

Hello, 2013.

Sofia Carson in Carolina Herrera

That skirt’s a stunner. We’d say this was too nice for the occasion, but the bust and straps are kind of ugly, to be honest.
