Most Daring Celebrities’ Celebrities on the MTV VMA’s Red Carpet

Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X and Anitta brought the drama to the MTV VMAs 2022 red carpet.

After coming to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in 2021, the MTV Video Music Awards returned to the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Sunday, August 28.

The red carpet saw everyone from Dove Cameron to Lil Nas, Chloe Bailey, Anitta and Lizzo sporting dazzling looks. Floral prints were a Red Carpet theme at the 2022 VMAs, with Dove Cameron and Sabrina Carpenter sporting petals at the pre-show. Blackpink also surprised for the better, with Jennie’s dark dress featuring a floral skirt while the rest of the group kept it fresh with solid black fashion. Lil Nas opted for a spectacular black feathered ensemble and bare torso, while Jack Harlow chose a more sober outfit, with a black leather suit for his appearance on the red carpet. There were also see-through jumpsuits, conical shoulders and lots of cutouts.

Men were also present, of course! Most of them bared their torsos and sported gender-fluid fashions, bringing a certain softness to the menswear ensembles, with Conan Gray, Harris Reed Ethan Torchio.

The 2022 MTV VMAs had incredible performances from J Balvin, Bad Bunny and even hip-hop icon Nicki Minaj, as well as hosting the show alongside LL Cool J and Harlow. Red Hot Chili Peppers were the winners of the 2022 VMAs Global Icon Award.
