All the best red carpet looks from the 2018 VMAs

All the best red carpet looks from the 2018 VMAs

The 2018 MTV Music Video Awards took place last night to celebrate the visual masterpieces that accompany today's most loved hits. Dua Lipa, Drake, and Shawn Mendes were all nominated for awards, but it was artists such as Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez who took the trophies home.

Childish Gambino won three prizes for This Is America, and Camila Cabello was the winner of the two biggest awards – video of the year for Havana and artist of the year. Ariana Grande was up for five awards, and though she only took one home, she gave an incredible performance of God Is a Woman, inviting her cousin, her mother and her grandmother onto stage with her.

It was also a big night for Ariana due to the fact that it was her first public appearance with fiancé Pete Davidson. The two were clearly very loved-up, exchanging kisses in front of photographers on the red carpet.

Speaking of which, no reportage of an A-list event would be complete without a fashion breakdown. So without further ado, here are 15 looks from the red carpet that most deserve our attention.
