The red carpet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards was one for the books. While nearly every singer, model, and actress made an appearance at the event, it was a mother-daughter duo who really stood out: Beyoncé and Blue Ivy, of course! While Beyoncé wowed in a feather-festooned Francesco Scognamiglio dress, her mini-me looked adorable in a tutu and sneakers.
Of course, Queen Bey wasn't the only stylish attendee at this year's event, which was held at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. Wearing Marc Jacobs, Rita Ora went for a bold combination of leather, lace, and feathers—and her fashion risk definitely paid off. Models also made a strong appearance at the VMAs, including rising-by-the-minute faces like Taylor Hill, Stella Maxwell, Ashley Graham, Hailey Baldwin, Joan Smalls, and more. Read on to see what everyone wore, and let us know your favorite looks in the comments section.
