The model looked sharp in a black Tom Ford suit that featured a double-breasted jacket and wide-leg pants, which she paired with black pointed-toe Christian Dior heels. Rose chose to skip the shirt and showed off a lacy La Perla bra under her blazer.
"It's happening. It's doing it," she told InStyle of wearing just a jacket over her bra at the VMAs. "I'm excited to be here: festivities and free drinks." Mirrored Christian Dior sunglasses and Gabriel & Co. jewelry finished off her striking outfit.
The star wore a bright swipe of crimson lipstick, which complemented her platinum-white buzzed hair. Apparently, Rose—who showed off a temporary long-hair look on Instagram earlier this summer—has been struggling with the experience of sharing her hair transformations with the public.

"I'm pretty unrecognized with hair, it's pretty weird," she told InStyle. "I'm kind of mad that I did that on Instagram because now when I go out and try to blend in it's not gonna work because they know who I am now."
While she may often dabble with varied lengths, the star says that she has no plans of growing out her hair in the new future. "I've had this for 14 years," she said. There you have it!
