The VMAs are that one awards show that makes me feel super old, but I watch anyway because I enjoy a good choreographed dance and a little sparkle (plus when you see all those memes the next day, don’t you want to know what they’re all about?) Although the VMAs tend to bring out everyone’s inner tacky, there were some pretty amazing moments on the red carpet last night (actually quite a few best dressed picks…can you believe it?!)
Besides the Met Gala and the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival really makes the trifecta of the most glamorous events of the year. But it’s not always just about that red carpet — celeb’s off-duty looks (especially their airport style…which we just can’t seem to get enough of) are just as exciting as those gowns. Better yet? These are outfits you can actually wear yourself!
With this year’s Met Gala theme being Manus x Machina (man made vs. machine made fashion) we’ve seen a lot of different interpretations. From extreme beading and other intricate details to all silver everything (I guess when people hear “fashion in an age of technology” they immediately think METALLICS!) we’ve seen it all. But have we? That was only the beginning. So let’s take a look at the most “on theme” and / or over the top looks from the 2016 Met Ball red carpet.
