The MTV VMAs has never just been about who had the best video, best song, or best anything. The show’s red carpet fashions have always been just as popular as learning who was going to walk away with a Moon Man. Lil Kim nearly freed the nipple in 1999 with her iconic purple pasty outfit. Even Diana Ross couldn’t resist copping a quick feel of the daring rap diva.
Rose McGowan completely stunned when she sashayed the carpet in a fishnet dress with then-boyfriend Marilyn Manson in 1998. The VMAs red carpet is also where we first saw Lady Gaga look like dog food in a dress made entirely of meat. Jack Black’s channeling Michael Jackson during the Smooth Criminal era or Howard Stern’s buttcheeks being on full display as Fartman.
