Though the red carpet is much different this year. The style was never sacrificed. Here is VMAN’s list of best-dressed attendees at this year’s Video Music Awards.


Before this Columbian star hopped on stage in a highlight-yellow suit singing his hit single Hawai, Maluma walked down the VMAs carpet in a black silk Versace suit. When smiling for the camera, fans saw that Maluma had silver fangs inside his mouth. Maluma took home Best Latin Video for Qué Pena.

The Weeknd

No, The Weeknd was not really bleeding. The singer was covered in bloody face makeup and prosthetic bruise marks to promote his song Blinding Lights. In the music video, The Weeknd gets slammed to the ground by a bouncer and drives drunk to meet up with a date. The music video was awarded Best R&B Video.

Jaden Smith

Jaden Smith’s red carpet appearances have been anything but ordinary. At the 2017 Met Gala, Smith held onto locks of his hair as he entered the star-studded event. While Jaden’s look at this year’s VMA didn’t include a hair-handbag, it did include denim, a colorful jacket, pink sunglasses, lots of bracelets and necklaces. 


This rapper looked more comfortable than any other star to walk across the VMA’s carpet last night. DaBaby’s Louis Vuitton shorts had to be incredibly soft matched with that black white striped top. Dolce & Gabbana also made an appearance on the rapper’s hat. 

Machine Gun Kelly

Did someone say pink? Hot pink? From his neck to ankles, Machine Gun Kelly wore a full pink outfit. The rapper matched an armless turtleneck with long dress pants. Slung over his shoulder in this shot is a (you guessed it) pink suit. Kelly took home Best Alternative Video for Bloody Valentine.

Travis Barker

Blink-182’s Travis Barker was one of the only male stars embracing a face mask last night. The mask read “Don’t Trust Anyone” and was matched with plaid pants and a graphic tee. Earlier in the night, the singer performed alongside Machine Gun Kelly at the VMAs pre-show.
