Today, we give an informal ode to extraordinary women who never pinch pennies when it comes to self-awareness and expression. They deserve the good things life has to offer. Several of these ladies make our best-dressed list as they gave the blistering heat a cold shoulder and continued to assemble their looks with touches of elegance that made these exceptional attires feel decidedly put-together. With every step oozing regality, the best-dressed stars were fashionably up-to-date for the MTV Video Music Awards, movie premieres, and reality show reunions. vmas best outfits

The looks

The 2022 VMA’s carpet was bursting with looks enlivened by embellishments, crazy cutouts, volumes, and more. First-time nominee Shenseea stole the attention in a neutral-toned Marc Jacobs piece that daringly married embellishments with cutouts. The top half of the outfit championed skin reveal in a sheer fabric baptized in round, metallic details while the bottom half made a case for heavy structure. The play on weight, accents, and texture made this number a hit. The Jamaican singer rightly finished off the look with a matching jacket and white gloves.

The latest updates on the style scenes are digging into the archives for iconic designs and bringing them to life on the red carpets. Last week, beautypreneur Lori Harvey opted for a hooded Greg Lauren number from his Spring 2015 collection. The perfectly effortless execution of this design modeled both casual and kicky, with a mix of heavy and light fabrics and a side slit sprinkling its feminine touch.

Nigerian actress and producer Funke Akindele decked for her birthday in an elegant blue number with a cape. The two-fabric dress flaunted wild applique details perfect for a birthday girl looking to cause a stir. vmas best outfits
