VMA Highlights from a Fashion Insider's Perspective

Watch out Obama, here comes President West! Kanye being Kayne, cannot pass by the opportunity for a melodramatic statement. During his VMA acceptance speech, Kanye very seriously announced his plans to run for president come 2020. Sadly, you will have to wait five years to see the outcome.

Following Kim Kardashian's infamous curtain-inspired Met gown fiasco during her last pregnancy, fashion critics were eager to see what the pregnant star would wear on the red carpet. Shockingly, Kim rocked up slightly underdressed in a safari-inspired lace-up dress. And those pocket placements did her no favours whatsoever.

VMA host, Miley Cyrus, was sure to deliver something outrageous in the fashion department. Dressed by designer Jeremy Scott, Miley rocked plenty of barely-there, metallic ensembles. Head to Miley's Instagram to see everything that happened behind-the-scenes (including Miley's behind)!

Shocking everyone, Nicki Minaj verbally slammed Miley onstage for getting involved in an earlier social media fued between Nicki and Taylor Swift.

Unphased by the drama, Taylor Swift released the official music video for her latest single, Wildest Dreams, during the VMA pre-show. Another star to drop a music video on the night, Justin Bieber has released the official music video to his track What Do You Mean.

Taking a stand on the red carpet is not something we see often, but that is exactly what Amber Rose and Blac Chyna did. The pairs matching skin-tight outfits, branded with neon words such as "stripper", "golddigger" and "b#tch", has left many offended.

Miley ended the night by releasing her new album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, online for free. Just in case you were not yet convinced that she stole the spotlight for the night.
