These Are The Best Beauty Looks From The 2017 VMA's

Even if they didn't get a Moonman, they are all winners.

Published August 28th

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. 

  1. Amber Rose

    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. 

  2. Mel B.

    Is there such a thing as #RevengeGlam? If there is, Mel B. wanted to let her ex know she’s looking good — and moving on! 

  3. Nicki Minaj

    The Barbz lived up to her name with a 60-inch pink and blonde wig — her new signature — and a flawless beat.

  4. Keyshia Ka'oir

    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. 

  5. Christina Milian

    Well, hello bronze goddess! Ms. Milian is giving fresh-off-vacation realness, complete with a wet slickback and tons of highlighter. Tres chic! 

  6. Yara Shahidi

    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. 

  7. Cardi B.

    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. 

  8. Kendrick Lamar

    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. 

  9. Lil' Mama

    Beyond her confusing birdcage accessory, the When Love Kills star was bringing the drama with her voluminous waves. 

  10. Teyana Taylor

    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.
