Bretman Rock took to the VMAs red carpet and gave fans something they never could’ve expected: an Aaliyah call back. Bretman Rock wore the same yellow-and-black striped dress that the singer wore to the 2000 VMAs. Even though he was technically outfit repeating, Rock made this VMAs look totally his.

This gown was a statement back in 2000, and it still goes hard today. The high-slit and fur details are unique and funky. Not to mention, you can’t ignore the vibrant colors.
