Our favorite looks from the 2022 Video Music Awards

Do you have any fun traditions for watching iconic awards shows like MTV Music video prices? For the THP team, one of our favorites is to play armchair fashion police every time another star shows up! This year has brought some of our favorite looks yet again, and while we can talk about the 2022 black carpet all day, we’ll spare you and just share 14 of our favorites. Still a lot, but it was, like, really difficult to reduce them.


Both of Anitta’s looks for the evening — her black carpet look and her performance bodysuit — were red, but we still haven’t forgotten the unique dress she wore on the carpet before the show started. From the plunging corset to this interesting halter piece, this was one of the standout looks of the night!

These BLACKPINK outfits are going straight to our dome faster than “Pink Venom!” Lisa, Jisoo, Jennie, and Rosé each wore quite a different black look, but they came together so amazingly, and each outfit matched their personalities.

Chloe Bailey

There’s never an award show where Chlöe doesn’t shine, so we were thrilled to see her literally shine in this silver dress from Zigman! The fitted bodice against the draped waist was gorgeous and the fact that it matched the Moonperson trophies was a fun bonus.

Conan Gray

Can you believe it was only Conan’s first VMA appearance and he blew us away so much?? Our jaws were dropping when he stepped out in this Harris Reed look, complete with platform boots from Marc Jacobs. The contrast between the airy white lace and the powerful black pants was so interesting!

Dove Cameron

She can be a better boyfriend than him, and she can dress better than him! Of course, we’re talking about Dove Cameron, who won Best New Artist. We’ve known Dove has been a style icon for years, but this might just be one of our favorite looks she’s ever worn.

Jack Harlow

We don’t know how Jack tolerated the New Jersey heat in this look, but we congratulate him! Her leather suit was from Hermes, but it looked like it came from heaven due to its quality. adapted him. Honorable mention goes to the light turquoise look he wore in public later that night.

You can always count on Latto to bring a little “Big Energy” to an award show, but this time she’s also brought the perfect accessory to make us all hungry. She teamed up with Burger King and the incredible Laurel Dewitt – who’s styled for stars like Lady Gaga, Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé – to create a one-of-a-kind dazzling crown with her. 777 album title on the front! After the VMAs, the crown will be raffled on the NTWRK app to raise money for Save The Music and help schools fund music programs.

Lil Nas X

We dubbed this Lil Nas X look the Circle Of Life because the feathery circle and round skirt bring us to life. He always knows exactly how to make a statement at an event or award show! We are witnessing fashion history in the making, my friends.

“It’s a bad bitch hour,” and Lizzo didn’t even think to hit snooze! This voluminous dress could have easily looked boring for the wrong person, but it looked so luxurious and rich on Lizzo. We’re getting classy vibes from Ursula and we’re not complaining!

Nicki Minaj

Our daughter Nicki was one of the most famous performers of the night and won the legendary Video Vanguard Award, so naturally she needed an iconic look to match. She delivered all the Barbie dreams of our dreams and performed a mashup of her greatest hits in a Barbie Dreamhouse-inspired ensemble. What more ?

Tate McRae

Tate was doing double duty this year VMA, appearing both as the superstar she is and as a black carpet correspondent! So of course she dressed the part and looked absolutely amazing doing it. This silhouette was so fresh and the subdued teal is such a great color for her.

Taylor Swift

Miss Swift? ! MISS SWIFT? ! If you’ve seen this sneaky post-and-delete Oscar de la Renta offering a little preview of this look captioned with the lyrics “mirrorball”, you were probably half leaning on the clown with us and half convinced. that there was no way Taylor would show up. But she did, and she gave us what might just be her best award show look yet! Then she announced a brand new album… that night was surreal.
