Fashion hits and misses at the 2022 VMAs

Take a look inside of the most talked about looks from the VMAs from some of your favorite artists including Lizzo, Chloe Bailey, Nicki Minaj and more.

Bright, bold and edgy was the underlying fashion theme for this year’s VMA Awards. Nominees such as Lizzo, Chloe Bailey, Latto, Shenseea, and Video Vanguard Award winner, Nicki Minaj, graced fans with their presence. 

Lizzo was pictured on the red carpet with a black couture piece from Jean Paul Gaultier that resembled Missy Elliott’s iconic outfit from the music video, “Supa Dupa Fly.” She later accepted the “Video for Good” Award for her video, “About D— Time.”

Lastly, Nicki Minaj accepted the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award with her classic pink from head to toe look. Her acceptance speeches were the highlight of the evening. 

Minaj took the time to honor multiple artists that paved the way for her and others and gave her opportunities throughout her rap career. She even touched on mental health. Later, some viewers took to Twitter to share their opinions. 

Over the duration of Nicki Minaj’s career, she’s influenced a lot of the current artists in today’s arena but the narrative becomes negative when it comes to Minaj giving credit where credit is due. 

“Super Freaky Girl,” sampled from Rick James, was performed after a compilation of popular hits like “Moment 4 Life” and “Super Bass.” The rapper has never been shy about showing her sensual side and the VMAs were no different. Minaj definitely brought the Barbz and the pink wigs out.
