The 2019 MTV’s Video Music Awards just happened and major things in music history happened! Hosted by American stand-up Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco and held at the Prudential Centre in Newark, New Jersey, the award show presented its first-ever Fashion Trailblazer Award to American Designer Marc Jacobs.
Multi-VMA nominee Taylor Swift opened the event. She sang her newest songs “You Need to Calm Down” and “Lover”. Equally multi-VMA nominated artist Ariana Grande also performed her hit song, “Thank U, Next”. The highest honor, the MTV Vanguard award, went to hip-hop queen Missy Elliot. She performed her iconic song “Work It” and also took the chance to drop a surprise album.
Among the performers were Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello. The real-life couple performed their song “Señorita”. Newly single pop star Miley Cyrus attended sans ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, but she certainly gave a heartening performance of “Slide Away”.
With music comes fashion. Here is our best-dressed ladies and gentlemen at the 2019 MTV VMA show.
- Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid
Always on point with their killer fashion and attitude, supermodel sisters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid opted for nude palette looks, head-to-toe by Tom Ford and Charlotte Knowles.
- Taylor Swift
There’s nothing safer than wearing a suit dress with over-the-knee boots. But what we love here is that Taylor chose a bright printed suit by Atelier Versace.
- Camila Cabello
Consistent with her sexy Latina vibes, Cabello was all dressed up in white silky cut-out dress from Balmain’s Resort 2020 collection. A great pick for her petite and curvy figure!
- E.R. in Valentino
She’s officially the only one who nailed a Valentino outfit with a live snake dangled on her neck. A snake! (An homage to Britney?)
- Shawn Mendes
On the gentlemen’s side, Shawn Mendes leads the pack with his green suit by Dolce & Gabbana.
- Jonas Brothers
The Jonas Brothers proved that they look great on- and off-stage with Fendi suites.
- J. Balvin
Looking groovy-polished, J. Balvin donned a grey suit by Off-White.
