Award show beauty can be hit or miss. Thankfully most of our favorite attendees at the 2017 Video Music Awards came to stun and slay. See below for the makeup (and hair) looks we can’t wait to re-create — in no particular order.
Muva Rose made us do a double take when she hit the carpet with bae 21 Savage. We think we can get used to her rocking longer locks.
The Barbz lived up to her name with a 60-inch pink and blonde wig — her new signature — and a flawless beat.
The soon-to-be Mrs. Wopster was glowing from head to toe in soft nudes and a chocolate brown smoky eye. No wonder hubby Gucci Mane can't keep his hands off her.
Looks like the future Harvard grad was out on a school night! She paired retro finger waves with a big, bodacious ponytail to remind us she’s getting grown, y'all.
Listen, 2017 is Cardi B.’s year and she’s here to remind you of that. She took a break from long hair and switched it up in a mid-length bob before hitting the VMA pre-show stage.
Yes, we’re sneaking K.Dot in this roundup! Perhaps the subtle red interlaced between his braids was a hint that his opening performance would be straight fire.
Beyond her confusing birdcage accessory, the When Love Kills star was bringing the drama with her voluminous waves.
When we weren’t gazing at her abs with pure envy, our eyes were locked into Teyana’s short black bob — which turned out to be an ode to Janet Jackson’s 1995 VMA appearance. It’s a #TBT a few days early.
