The VMAs might be the best awards show for fashion in the entire year, because people actually take fun risks. Here are the coolest looks from the night—including a surprising number of very dapper men. (Or, if you're a meaner reader, hop right on over to the worst dressed.)
1. Okay, first Beyoncé.
The Queen, with Princess Blue Ivy. My God.
2. Robert Sepúlveda Jr.
The Finding Prince Charming star—pictured with show host Lance Bass—wore a suit printed with butterflies. Everyone deserves this suit.
3. Jay Pharoah
Another damn cool suit, and well-tailored, too.
4. Quvenzhané Wallis
Wallis, in addition to being an Academy Award nominee, appeared in Beyoncé's "Formation" video, if you couldn't tell from her very "Formation"-like dress.
Is the VMAs the only awards show where men actually wear interesting clothing?
6. Nicki Minaj
Great color, and so sexy (and long) that I'm not sure how she walks in it.
7. Baddie Winkle
I don't know who this lady is but automatic best dressed.
8. Hailee Steinfeld
A lot of short dresses at the ceremony ended up looking kind of like something you'd wear to your cousin's Bat Mitzvah, but this one was very stylish and cute.
9. Justine Skye
Gorgeous and weird—she should have stood next to Beyoncé so they could look like two beautiful Muppets together. This dress is amazing.
