All the best and worst outfits on the 2022 MTV VMAs red carpet

Monday - 29/08/2022 06:44
The MTV Video Music Awards never disappoint in the fashion stakes – and this year, even Taylor Swift has opted for a racy see-through gown.

Celebs are starting to arrive on the red – or in this case, black – carpet for the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, held in New York today.

The ceremony will air locally from 10am AEDT on Foxtel’s MTV channel, with performances by the likes of Korean girl group superstars Blackpink, rapper Jack Harlow and Eurovision rockers Maneskin. Harlow, LL Cool J and Nicki Minaj are set to share hosting duties.

Meanwhile, there have been reports that Johnny Depp is set to make a cameo during the awards, having been in talks with the show’s production team to dress up as the network’s Moonman mascot.

Before that, though, the red carpet – and Taylior Swift has gone for a surprisingly racy look in this beaded, see-through flapper-style dress:

One of the most attention-grabbing outfits came from Victoria De Angelis of Italian rock band Maneskin, who walked the red carpet with just one carefully-placed love heart away from a nip-slip.
