The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the biggest red carpet (or whatever-color carpet) events of the year, and you know how much I love scrolling through the celebrity arrivals to pin down the best — and worst — dressed.

Still, I appreciate someone having a little fun with fashion, and the VMAs are definitely the place to do it. (Say what you want about Beyonce’s bizarre feathered collar, she slays all day. And, as Buzzfeed says, looked like “a beautiful angel muppet.”) So here are a few of my 2016 MTV Video Music Awards best-dressed stars.
