The fashion at the MTV Video Music Awards – from the best to the most absurd

The fashion at the MTV Video Music Awards – from the best to the most absurd

Even if you’ve forgotten your years as a die-hard MTV fan, it’s still worth taking a look at TV’s Video Awards to set your fashion watch.

There’s no better guide to what to dress and how not to dress than the stars on the red carpet.

Again this year, there were celebrities who demonstrated their keen sense of fashion trends, but there were also those who, to the delight of photographers, looked more like animated cartoon characters than music stars.

The big news of the night, however, was not the men’s and women’s dresses at the event (this is not new at all), but Taylor Swift’s new album, which the artist announced while accepting the award for the best video of the year.

Swift’s next project will be called Midnights, and it premieres on October 21 of this year.

“This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through nightmares and sweet dreams. For the stage we walk on and the demons we face. For all of us who have decided to leave our lanterns burning and seek hope, that maybe when the clock strikes 12, we’ll meet ourselves,” Swift said of her new album.

Shortly before she sent audiences into hysterics and counting down the days to October 21, the surprise was Johnny Depp’s first public appearance (in a sense) since the defamation suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

In a holographic version, the actor flew over the stage in an astronaut suit and addressed the audience with a small job advertisement.

“I want you to know that I’m available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, weddings and anything you need,” Depp told the crowd.

But before you flip through the calendar and look up Johnny Depp’s contacts for your next family event, we suggest you check out the gallery of the outfits of celebrities who attended the flesh-and-blood video awards.

Some of these outfits are living classics, and others will be a source of laughter for many years to come.
