Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid

Bella and Gigi Hadid attended the 2019 VMA in coordinating neutral looks. Gigi sported a corset top with wide-leg trousers by Tom Ford, while Bella wore a strappy, midriff-baring dress. The sisters rocked their gorgeous style with almost natural makeup. 


Hailee Steinfeld 

In a red dress with thigh-high slits and floral details, Hailee went bold and cute to walk the carpet. Definitely giving us vibes that anyone can rock a whole bold red look and a red lip. Her playful dress accentuated her legs and she looked stunning.

Wearing a strapless, asymmetrical dress with jewel-toned starburst beading by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran, its strategic cut-out made for a full midriff reveal, highlighting the rock-solid abs she's become notorious for. Above the neck, her dark long curly hair lay in soft waves and her eyes stood out in an ultraviolet shadow that popped against her head-to-toe glow.

Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas

Nick wore all black with a tan shirt, while Kevin also opted for a black suit and shirt. Joe, on his end, went for a double-breasted gray suit jacket with matching trousers. The trio really has shown how The Jonas Brothers have grown up and will be here to stay as our heartthrobs of the century!

Camila Cabello

Floating onto the carpet in a silky white gown with waist-long wavy hair and natural makeup, the singer appeared angelic as ever. The cameras dipped down to reveal some seriously sexy cutouts, an up-to-there slit, and a plunging neckline. Camila herself has stated she is in a very romantic mood and so happy with herself this year, and this dress tells it all.

Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs, who had received the inaugural MTV Fashion Trailblazer Award, wears an olive suit from his eponymous brand. Classic Jacobs!


H.E.R. accessorized her green floral suit with a live snake and round sunglasses. Totally giving us old school Britney Spears vibes! H.E.R and Youtuber Tana Mongeau both brought live snakes to the red carpet.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift graced the star-studded ceremony in a truly breathtaking design that shimmered as bright as the flashing camera lights. From her colorfully jewel-adorned blazer-dress by Versace to her equally stunning rhinestone knee-high boots, her ensemble was a sight to see. 

Zara Larsson

Zara Larsson made an elite entrance in a cascading pink gown with a train that is just as bold as Zara is! So pastel and pretty in pink, her makeup really stood out and her light blonde hair complemented with the dress really well. 


Diplo in a colorful print suit, matching cowboy hat, and white cowboy boots. The cowboy of our dreams! Diplo's unique outfit stood out and showcased his personality on a new level.

Bebe Rexha

Rexha revealed that Christian Siriano whipped up the gown in two hours right before she walked the red carpet. The 29-year-old singer's publicist confirmed to Insider that the dress was made on Monday, adding "everything happened today" from the first fitting to the red carpet. The singer praised Siriano for making dresses for all body types and said she was proud to be a "curvy girl" in the music industry.

Queen Latifah 

Queen Latifah rocked the red carpet in her tangerine suit and paid tribute to her home state performing later on that evening. 


James Charles

James Charles walked the carpet with a gorgeous short cut trench coat over white shorts with thigh-high boots. The young star also showcased his newly bleached and bold hair.



Halsey wore a sheer red dress by designer Peter Dundas, who dressed stars like Emily RatajkowskiGabrielle Union, and Ciara at the 2019 Met Gala. Halsey's dress had 3D flower petals going down its length, and underneath she simply wore a black bra and high waisted underwear. The middle of the flowy dress was cinched with a black leather girdle belt.
