Quick Change Artists! All the Outfit Swaps You Have to See from the 2018 MTV VMAs
Cardi B's post-baby return was one to remember. She went glam on the carpet in a fuchsia velvet Nicolas Jebran dress with open neckline and kept up the leggy avant garde looks inside, in her strapless red dress with high-low skirt and her ultra-short mini with plunging neckline and pouffy shoulder appliqué.
In a shocking turn of events, Ariana ditched her signature ponytail, but stuck to her love of mini dresses with over-the-knee boots on the carpet and during the show. She wore shiny metallic, sleek black and gold embellished numbers throughout, then swaped into a comfier oversize sweatshirt with over-the-knee boots at the afterparty.
The Video Vanguard Award recipient wore six different sexy embellished Atelier Versace looks throughout the night, starting with a chainmail ruched gown with sky-high slit on the carpet. Then she wore a printed plunging dress and sparkly cutout leotard during her epic performance. And she rounded out her big night in a gold low-cut dress, a party frock with high-low feathery metallic skirt and printed Versace onesie.
Kylie wore three distinctly different looks throughout the VMAs, starting with a structured white Tom Ford blazer dress on the carpet, then swapped into a sexier spaghetti strap mini dress, then ended with a bang in a strapless black outfit with skin-tight pants.
Tiffany brought some serious pattern play at the VMAs. She wore a graphic black and white dress on the carpet and swapped into a blue mosaic-print Rami Kadi number quickly after. But it was her afterparty look that stole the show when she arrived in an all-over embellished long-sleeve jumpsuit.
Blake kept her suiting streak alive at the VMAs wearing a Ralph & Russo couture silk crêpe suit jacket with crystal-adorned collar and wide-leg pants, then changed into a slouchier off-white suit for the afterparty.
Double party looks! Olivia opted for two glittery numbers throughout the night, first wearing a purple sequin David Koma dress then changing into a sheer star-burst mini dress.
Triple threat! Rita wow'd in three very distinct looks that ranged from an underwear-flashing gown (those are Fleur du Mal peeking through) to a feathery Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture mini dress to an abs-baring cutout gown.
Iggy toned down her look from the red carpet at the afterparty, switching from a geometric-print leather mini dress into a srtiped suit.
Winnie was dripping in beading in her Zuhair Murad gown on the carpet, then switched to feathers in her textured party leotard.
Nicki was feeling leotards, wearing a one-piece Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh number with built-in choker and sheer skirt on the carpet, and a gold hardware corset during her performance.
