Here in the U.S., the MTV VMAs are one of the few red carpets we can rely on to consistently be fun — for better or worse. There, celebs really cut loose from their normal (read: sometimes safe) style to experiment with looks that are just a little out there.
But where there's great risk, there's also great reward, and it turns out that most of the stars at MTVs EMAs — the European equivalent to the VMAS — nailed that balance perfectly. What would be a relatively tame, monochromatic Off-White look on anyone else is an interesting turn to sportswear for Charli XCX. Camila Cabello changed from a princess-y Ralph & Russo frock to a hot red, ruffled, custom Walter Mendez catsuit to perform "Havana." And Lana Del Rey may have looked a little bored, but her hothouse floral dress from Gucci was anything but.
