MTV's Video Music Awards are upon us once again which means everyone will be talking about them all week long. The VMAs are known for churning out some of the most buzz-worthy events of the year, whether it’s Miley Cyrus donning a strange outfit and twerking or Britney Spears kissing Madonna, something memorable always happens. People talk about the winners of the VMAs almost incessantly for the whole week after they air, but one of the most under appreciated aspects of the awards show are all the outfits that celebrities show up in.
The VMAs aren't like The Oscars where celebs dress to the nines with classy gowns, suits and jewelry; the VMAs are more like a Saturday night party where everyone wants to express their individuality but still dress up a little. Sometimes the attempts at creativity go well, but more often than not it’s pretty regrettable.
Some of the worst outfits came out of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, but the same can be said for everyone in the time period, not just celebrities. In everyone's defense the world was supposed to end with Y2K and when it didn't people had to scramble for something to remember the decade by, it just ended up being awful fashion.
Unfortunately for celebrities, though, is that we have their awful outfits documented to laugh at forever. While you get pumped up for the awards show tomorrow night, you can take a look at this list of some of the worst outfits in VMA history and hope Sunday's show provides us with more cringe-worthy clothing.
