Lil Nas X wore a gorgeous Harris Reed look for the 2022 VMAs: stunning?

Here are some fashion photos from last night’s VMA red carpet. I wasn’t expecting anyone to show up, honestly, because the MTV awards shows have been limping along for no real reason for years. They got a jolt of relevancy last night with the appearances of Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Lizzo and Lil Nas X. Lil Nas X – aka Montero – wore this gorgeous Harris Reed look and honestly he was the belle of the ball. He looked SO good. His skin is so beautiful and moisturized. Nas picked up three different VMAs.

Lizzo wore this gorgeous Jean Paul Gaultier look. The VMA black carpet was very ‘90s-goth, and Lizzo fit right in with this rich, dark taffeta and her dark blue lips. This is one of my favorite looks of all time for Lizzo?

Jack Harlow sat with Lil Nas X and they picked up VMAs for their collab, “Industry Baby.” I mean, that’s Nas’s song and Jack just did a drop-in, but still. I have no idea why Jack chose this heavy leather suit in late August.

Damiano David and Maneskin all wore Gucci. Damiano wore delicate pearl earrings too. Sob, I love him so much.

Chloe Bailey in Zigman. She’s adorable but this dress isn’t flattering.

Lili Reinhart in Fendi. Goth vibes, but sort of “high end goth.” Goth via Saks.

Speaking of goth-alt and dated, Avril Lavigne was there with her fiance Mod Sun. Bless Avril, I would wear that outfit and I would love it.

    Montero is perfection, as is Lizzo.

    Maneskin as a collective is pure sex and I hope Angelina used her powers for AT LEAST one night with Damiano. (Obviously not because the world didn’t combust with hotness and we’re all still here on this dumb rock).

    Celebrities may have showed up but fans didn’t. The venue was largely empty.

    • Noki says:

      Wow surely that was before the show began?

      • VIV says:

        I saw a bit of the broadcast. It was at least halfway through and they accidentally cut to the the top section view while introducing category nominees. The seats were completely empty.

  3. LeaTheFrench says:

    I LOVE Lizzo’s dress! This is the right kind of dramatic, the styling is perfect, she absolutely nailed that look!

    • Owlsyn (all hail Queen Meghan) says:

      It looks… I’m trying to figure out how to say eloquently and I can’t ….. it looks like the breeze is blowing it around, or like the dress is a wave that is crashing up against rocks. It looks like movement and I find that really cool.

    Harris Reed is an amazing designer and person. His Instagram is full of beauty. Lizzy looks amazing. Avril has always come across as a poser. I have never been able to take her seriously. Love her hair though and her man is cute.

    • Both Sides Now says:

      Oh, I will have to look at his IG. As for Lizzo she is the epitome of chic and brought her beauty and attitude with it!! She is such a wonderful woman and I love seeing her as well as the honours bestowed upon her which is truly deserved!!

      As for Lil Naz X, Reinhart, and Damiano looked on fire!! I love seeing what Lil Naz X will wear! He and Porter are my favorite red carpet reveals!

      Poor Lavigne….I don’t know what to say.

    • SomeChick says:

      it looks a lot like what Iman wore to the Met Gala the last time she went. it’s a lot of look but he pulls it off well, as ever!

    I ran here to see if Månskin was shown 💗
    I’m such a pathetic 53 year old fan girl 😹
    But I grew up in the 80’s and I love me some glam rock.
    This band has IT, I think they will be huge.
    Damiano is sex on a stick 😜

    I also love lil naz x and hope he has some new music in the works. I wish him a happy life

  6. BrainFog 💉💉💉😷 says:

    Nas and Lizzo look amazing. I think I like Lizzos look best.

  7. fishface says:

    Lil Nas X – I think this is the best red carpet look I’ve ever seen. He’s a god! And Lizzo is my hero.

  8. Glamarazzi says:

    Nas looks pretty cool – I’m digging the black halo headpiece, and of course the well-oiled physique. No complaints there.

    Lizzo looks amazing too – what an ultra-striking dress. Kinda wish I’d stopped scrolling after that.

    • AMA1977 says:

      I think (JMO) that it would look better if it was just the halo and pants, without the hoops/skirt. The fact that you can see in between the tiers makes it look cheap to me, but the headdress/halo is awesome!

      My usual caveat: if he loves his outfit then I love it for him. I have a mom soft-spot for Lil Nas X and celebrate him living his best life, out loud, in the way that brings him the most joy.

  9. Surly Gale says:

    Nas is reminding me a little of Cher’s Bob Mackie creation. Imitation best form of flattery? Though this is not imitation…. more like a riff off Cher’s outfit.
    Mostly though, it’s the confidence thing. Cher was confident when she wore her outfit and Nas looks confident in his/theirs (unsure of correct pronoun).

    • SomeChick says:

      look up Iman Met Gala. I think the same designer did both. Cher is Mackie Glamour. this is more arty fashion.

  10. Silver Birch says:

    Lizzo is a beautiful, confident, amazing woman, to be sure. Her hair and makeup look incredible. But I’m sorry, that dress makes her look like she’s drowning in a sea of garbage bags!

  11. EllaEncanto says:

    Co-sign on Nas, Lizzo, and Maneskin! I feel like Avril can’t move on from her glory years, really wish she’d update her look (otherwise she’s aging spectacularly and could look amazing). Also – wow does she have a type with guys. He’s….something.

  12. jferber says:

    Lil Nas X is a god. Clearly.

  13. SheRa says:

    Lizzo looks amazing in photos, but in movment her dress looked so uncomfortable and clumsy, plus no one seems to mention that this might be a tribute to a past look of Missy Elliot which is even awesomer.
