The MTV Video Music Awards is a unique awards show for many reasons, one is the insanely wide-ranging spectrum of red carpet style. From Oscars-worthy gowns like Lorde's lilac Monique Lhullier confection to the sophisticated sheer of Demi Lovato's Zuhair Murad jumpsuit, almost anything is possible (and even appropriate) in terms of VMAs fashun.
For instance, these ladies and gentleman hit the red carpet and showed off their respective personalities AND their opinions.
Scroll down below to see some of the most outrageous looks to grace MTV's VMAs arena.
The hip-hop artist arrived on the scene in what appeared to be an open-front wedding dress reading "Truth Hurts" in multi-colored letters on the train. She paired the unique gown with a set of matching stockings and silver tennis shoes.
The DNCE member showed off his chest tattoos while roaming the red (er, navy) carpet. Whittle rocked a gravity-defying partial mohawk and a metallic floral suit sans undershirt. Unconventional, yes—but we're feeling it.
