Last night saw the opening of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Los Angeles, California. The biggest players in the music industry and beyond hit the MTV VMAs red carpet, which is known for its boundary-pushing past (remember Gaga's meat dress?)... 

The ceremony's host Miley Cyrus paraded in a predictable array of barely-there 'dresses', many of which were custom made by Versace. Actress Vanessa Hudgens went for a slightly more demure options, and was a bohemian babe in a blush-coloured Naeem Khan number. Kim Kardashian also covered up, wearing a khaki green Balmain maxi dress.

Hailee Steinfeld opted for a minimalistic white jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, and Taylor Swift rocked a futuristic pantsuit by Ashish complete with OTT black kohl makeup.
