8 Outfits We Would Actually Wear From the VMAs

Because not all of us can pull off a latex pink one-piece like Nicki Minaj.

The MTV VMAs are known for a lot of things, but one of them is definitely not subtlety. In the past, celebrities have shown up doing the most, and this year was no different. Jared Leto wore a rainbow sequin cape, Nicki Minaj worked a pink latex one-piece, and DJ Khaled’s son Asahd put our childhood wardrobes to shame in a custom Gucci suit (!!!). Paired with those unexpected performances (like Ed Sheeran and Lil Uzi Vert performing each other’s songs?!), these over-the-top outfits (we want Miley’s pink hot pants, STAT) will inevitably be used as inspiration for Halloween costumes this year.

But, even if yes, we’ve dressed up in a blue fuzzy bra a-la Gwen Stefani in 1998, or with a fake snake channelling Britney Spears’  iconic 2001 performance, we’d like to argue that this year, there were bits of relatable—aka completely wearable—fashion inspiration as well. From Millie Bobby Brown to Yara Shahidi, here are the eight looks we would 100 percent wear from the VMAs, along with the pieces we’re adding to our shopping carts to *actually* make that happen.

We would wear a Rodarte dress like Millie Bobby Brown’s throughout the entire holiday season.

Paris Jackson can do no wrong in our eyes, and even if everyone has already worn this Dior tulle two piece, she makes the look entirely her own.

Pink proved that the pantsuit is here to stay. The best part of her outfit was the fact that her entire family–daughter included– rocked the structured set that defined 2017.

There is so much happening with this Alessandra Ambrosio Balmain look, but even so: we have never wanted legging thigh-high boots more.

Hailee Steinfeld’s simple Atelier Versace dress couldn’t be dreamier.

Demi Lovato is giving us another reason to love lingerie as everyday wear. Pairing a sexy body suit with a longer set of structured pants is absolutely the look we want right now.

Yara Shahidi wore a yellow Zimmerman dress earlier in the evening, but we’ll admit to being a little partial to sparkles. This one has *just* enough shine.

Okay so the sheer jumpsuit trend is everywhere this year (think Bella Hadid at the Met Gala), but we have a lot of thoughts about why Hailey Baldwin wore this Zuhair Murad one.
