Taking over the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, the 2022 MTV VMAs will combine memorable musical performances and famous celebrity style moments. Lizzo kicked off the night on a fashion-forward note, gracing the red carpet in a stunning Jean Paul Gaultier dress. Styled by Brittany Nelson, the “About Damn Time” singer wore a voluminous, off-shoulder silk taffeta gown in black and navy. Lizzo upped the drama with sheer opera gloves and accessorized with gold hoops, a few rings and a lip piercing layer.
Clad in this sophisticated gown, Lizzo makes a bid for the night’s best-dressed celebrity. Other contestants include Anitta, who literally bared her heart out in a crimson Schiaparelli corset gown; Sabrina Carpenter, who embraced cutouts in a Moschino maxi on a bed; and Chloe, who dazzled in a shimmering silver Zigman dress. Meanwhile, South Korean group Blackpink also made a stylish appearance, dressed in head-to-toe black and separates. Dove Cameron also looked sharp in a strapless floral maxi dress. Still, the night is young – and with Nicki Minaj as the woman of the hour, and performers like Doja Kat, Adele and Olivia Rodrigo, it will certainly deliver more fierce fashion in keeping with its track record.
