The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards took place in Los Angeles, California on August 26th.
I’m going to be honest here and say that I never pay much attention to the “looks” seen on the VMA red carpet. It generally provides a limited supply of stylish red carpet looks, with most attendees showing up in outfits more suited for crazy stage costumes (Lady Gaga, I mean you) than the glamorous pre-show it should be (well maybe not glamourous– this isn’t after all, the Oscars).
That all changed this year, with most of the stars really stepping up their style game for both the red carpet and the show itself. The 2014 VMAs offered a lot of fresh, funky, street-style fabulous looks! How refreshing!
Here are my picks of the night’s best!
Jessie J kept it simple and glamorous in this pale lemon vintage Halston gown, which she paired with Charlotte Olympia heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Image GETTY IMAGES
I love Balmain and I love Chanel Iman! Putting them together resulted in red carpet perfection! She accessorized her look with Balmain leather jewelry and a pair of Casadei cage sandals. Image GETTY IMAGES
Gwen Stefani looked gorgeous in this black and pink two-piece suit by L.A.M.B., crystal-studded Christian Louboutin pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.Simple makeup and a glamorous 40’s-inspired coiffure rounded out the starlet’s flawless look. Image GETTY IMAGES

I love Miley’s outfit! She braved the summery Los Angeles heat in this black leather look from the Alexandre Vauthier F/w 2014 Collection and silver Manolo Blahnik stilettos. It’s a bold choice and she pulled it off fabulously! Image GETTY IMAGES
Another leather look! The brunette singer rocked this red hot Ina Soltani halterneck shift dress, which she paired with Jimmy Choo pumps and statement jewelry by Jacob & Co. Image GETTY IMAGES
The actress looked simple and sweet in this net-overlay cutout dress by Milly. She accessorized her look with iridescent metallic Rupert Sanderson pumps and a sparkly Kotur clutch. Image GETTY IMAGES
The proud mother-to-be was glowing in this glittery off-white Kaufmanfranco gown. She finished off her look with diamond jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz. She looks gorgeous! Image GETTY IMAGES
This look works only because this is the VMAs. Charli XCX went for bright and bold in an electric Moschino x Jeremy Scott bodysuit, Nicholas Kirkwood shoes and a Vivienne Westwood clutch. Image GETTY IMAGES
This is suprisingly chic! Kendall Jenner layered her Alon Livne trousers and mesh top with a La Perla bra, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Jimmy Choo clutch and Jennifer Fisher jewelry. Image GETTY IMAGES
Beyoncé may have worn two Zuhair Murad gowns on the red carpet, but this custom mosaic-print bodysuit by Tom Ford really stole the show! Her performance was the best of the night, and it was made even better by this fabulous outfit. Image GETTY IMAGES
