Every awards show has a red carpet personality all its own. The Oscars are sober and elegant; the Grammys are bold; the ESPYs are full of suits overwhelmed by muscle. The carpet at MTV’s Video Music Awards, on the other hand, is all about boundary-pushing, ultra-youthful, risk-taking adventure. Which makes sense, for a wacky, viral-making kind of awards show. This year’s attendees didn’t disappoint. These are the best—and just wildest—looks of the night.
