The MTV Video Music Awards have reputation for getting a little out of hand. We wonder who will make history this year?
The Spice Girls
Only this epic girl group could get away with platforms, leopard print, and stars and stripes all in one red carpet appearance in 1997.
Where to start with this 1998 red carpet look? The furry bikini top, the platform flip-flops or… we’re not even sure exactly what those bottoms are…
This 1999 look may have been outrageous, but it sure was iconic.
Who could forget this Britney’s snake-charmer meets belly dancer moment in 2001?
Famous for their colour co-ordinating outfits, these fringed, embellished dresses from 2001 may be the trio’s boldest.
Paris Hilton wore so. much. pink. back in 2002. Also, is that a beach cover-up?
Back in 2002 Christina left very little to the imagination in this ultra mini skirt.
Who could forget 2010’s infamous meat dress?! This look was a high point in Lady Gaga’s outlandish fashion phase.
2014, the year where underwear and jewellery come together to make… this.
We still can’t get over Katy’s 2014 bedazzled version of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s matching denim look from 2001. Bravo.
Last year, before she was a Kardashian-to-be, Blac Chyna had a few choice words to say to everyone.
Last year’s host wore about 10 looks, each wilder than the last, but her chandelier-resembling, futuristic overalls (?) were certainly imaginative.
