The 2016 VMAs Red Carpet

This year's Video Music Awards may not have been as drama filled as last year, but that certainly doesn't mean it was boring. There were back to back performances from the two Queen B's (Britney and Beyonce), lots of Drake and Rihanna love, and a surprisingly tame, though not entirely uncontroversial, speech from Kayne West. The fashion of the evening was no exception, with celebs opting for edgy looks instead of over-the-top costumes for the red carpet. Check out the best looks from the 2016 VMAs below.
