Ain’t no red carpet like the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet because the VMAs red carpet has Beyoncé (and many others, too).

This year, thanks to highly anticipated performances by the likes of Britney Spears and Beyoncé, fans are surely waiting with bated breath for the star-studded event to begin. But first, there’s still arguably the most important part: the red carpet, of course.

Our favorite celebs, including the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, Nicki Minaj and Amber Rose did not disappoint in sparkles, cut-outs and an abundance of bare midriffs ― despite the fact that Taylor Swift is not in attendance.

Check out all the looks ― fun, fearless and far out ― from the red carpet below.
