The VMAs last night were filled with plenty of memorable surprises. Through the failures and successes, tears and smiles, and tons of bare skin, one part that definitely always sticks out are the star’s fashion choices for this annual event. We decided to take a closer look at our favourite performers’ red carpet looks and a throw-back to there first moments at the VMAs.
First up there was the host, Miley Cyrus, always pushing the fashion game year after year seen last night wearing quite the array of getups starting the night in a barely there Versace outfit, but what did she wear to her first VMAs when she was nominated for best new artist in 2008…
Then we have the opening performers Nikki Minaj and Taylor Swift singing “The Night is Still Young” segueing into “Bad Blood”. How far both of these stars have come in both their music and fashion choices looking back to Nikki’s first performance at the 2010 preshow and Taylor’s very memorable first win *cough Kanye* for best video of the year in 2009.
Next there was Justin Bieber and though his performance of his first single in 3 years and new hairstyle were enough to keep us talking, it is always fun to remember back to the young Bieber from 2010 performing “Somebody to Love” and winning new artist of the year.
And last but not least, there was the Vanguard Award winner himself, Kanye West. No one new to the VMA circuit and always leaving us with lasting memories, no matter how confusing they may be. He showed up accompanied by his gorgeous, pregnant wife Kim K in coordinating outfits, quite a change from his first performance at the VMAs in 2004!
