The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the more entertaining awards shows to watch. With lots of upbeat performances and plenty of unpredictable moments, it's always a good time. Even more exciting than the music though, is the fashion. Here's all the 2018 VMAs looks you don't want to miss.
Cardi B is ahead of the pack this year with the most 2018 VMA nominations — the new mom raked in a whopping 10 possible moon mans. JAY-Z and Beyoncé are next in line with eight (earned together as The Carters for their album Everything Is Love), Drake and Childish Gambino each have seven nominations, Bruno Mars comes in at six, and Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello each got five. Other notable female nominees include: Chloe x Halle, Bebe Rexha, Jennifer Lopez, P!nk, Bishop Briggs, SZA, Noah Cyrus, Kacy Hill, Sia, Janelle Monae, and Hayley Kiyoko. Tiffany Haddish and Blake Lively are some of the top name presenters for the night, and Nicki Minaj is scheduled to perform. To summarize, there's going to be a lot of fierce looks happening.
Before the show, though, the red carpet arrivals are the hottest ticket in town, and this year is no different. The 2018 VMAs are taking place in New York City and that means some wild fashion. Here are all of the looks you can't miss!
Rapper Cardi B just made her first major appearance since giving birth to daughter Kulture. The rapper wore a custom Nicolas Jebran gown with matching heels and an enormous pair of emerald earrings from Lorraine Schwartz to show off her brand new short haircut.
Kylie Jenner looked angelic in her white Tom Ford trench dress and Olgana Paris heels.
Nicki Minaj's knee-length hair almost distracted from her sheer Off-White dress and bodysuit. Almost.

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson
The power couple matched in space-inspired outfits, with Ariana Grande's silver dress and boots, and Pete Davidson's Off-White "NASA" sweatshirt.

SZA looked gorgeous in a loose-knit Rodarte dress that reminds me of my middle school sweaters, and I love it. Plus, butterflies on her shoes and neon green polish. #Winning.

Harlow quickly changed into a second outfit — the same Christian Louboutin heels, some Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and a very sheer black dress
Noah Cyrus hit the red carpet with her boyfriend Lil Xan. Cyrus rocked a Laura Basci golden bra top and pants and looked extra comfy in a pair of sneakers.
