VMAs 2014: Relive Nicki Minaj's Wardrobe Malfunction in Gifs

Aug/24/2014 at 11:40 PM ET

The VMAs wouldn’t be complete without a ton of crazy red carpet fashion and a wardrobe malfunction (or two). No, Solange’s blazer didn’t slip open, J.Lo didn’t rip her high-slit dress, Taylor Swift‘s onesie didn’t split. The moment happened onstage when Nicki Minaj changed from her green “Anaconda” two-piece to rap her part in Jessie J’s “Bang Bang”.

Minaj changed from her green sparkly two-piece into a sexy black dress, but when she walked back out onstage in an LBD, she was clearly a second or two away from being fully fastened.

“We ran out of time to get the dress zipped up,” Minaj said of the near nip-slip (see the play-by-play below).

Minaj managed to perform the rest of her part while holding her dress into place. But the dress mishap is definitely better than getting bitten by a snake.

On the red carpet, Minaj paid homage to her hit track in a snakeskin-print mini dress. What red carpet look was your favorite? How about stage costume? Share your thoughts below.

VMAs 2014: Jennifer, Katy, Demi and More Prove It's All About the Legs

When a red carpet swings from sedate and sophisticated to whatever this is, as the VMAs does, it’s hard to predict any trends. One thing we can almost always guarantee, however, is daringly bare outfits — it’s just a matter of how stars will show off their killer bods. And in 2014, the skin delivery method of choice was via sky-high slits.

From left, above, check out Katy Perry‘s leggy tribute to Britney Spears (courtesy Versace), Jennifer Lopez‘s super-risky silver number (one false move on the dance floor and that’s suddenly a cape, Rita Ora’s blazing-hot (and daringly bare) Donna Karan Atelier silk charmeuse gown, Kylie Jenner’s black boudoir robe-style dress and Demi Lovato‘s red-hot draped and plunging look.

Showing off your assets is an easy way to get people talking at the VMAs, so the question is, who got you talking the most?

VMAs 2014: Katy Perry Pays Homage to Britney Spears In an All-Denim Dress (and Britney Responds!)

The VMAs have always been a night for creating major style moments — but apparently it’s now also a night for paying homage to some of the most iconic outfits from years past. Amber Rose nodded to Rose McGowan with her barely-there “dress,” and then Katy Perry took it up a notch by paying homage to one of the most iconic couples outfits of all time: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake‘s double-denim ensembles.

The key difference? While Spears and Timberlake were apparently completely earnest, Perry Tweeted that her outfit was a custom Versace created for her as a result of her “love for nostalgia and … tumblr addiction.” In the Timberlake role for the evening: Rapper Riff-Raff (reportedly the inspiration for James Franco’s Spring Breakers character, and Perry’s right-hand man on the remix of “This Is How We Do”). The denim-clad duo stepped out of a yellow Lamborghini to enthusiastic screams, giving us plenty of time to admire Perry’s attention to detail.

From the patchwork denim pattern to the bedazzled choker, Perry nailed the Spears vibe entirely, while Riff Raff captured Timberlake’s essence with his goofy sunglasses and generally delighted demeanor.

So was the original Princess of Pop flattered? Not only that, she gave Perry props for taking it to the next level, bringing the denim gown out of retirement years later. Spears’s response:

VMAs 2014: Amber Rose Takes on Rose McGowan's Iconic Butt-Baring Moment

Rose McGowan’s 1998 VMAs moment is so burned into all our collective memories that it’s no surprise that few celebrities have tried to top it. In case you’ve somehow forgotten, McGowan showed up on the arm of then-boyfriend Marilyn Manson wearing a sparkly sheer veil down her front connected by a handful of delicate strings … and not much else. Even red-carpet risk takers like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna haven’t gone quite so bold (though Rih’s come close). It appears Amber Rose thought we were overdue.

The star attended with husband Wiz Khalifa in the polar opposite of her wild wedding dress: A sparkly series of chains linked to create the illusion of a dress, over a sparkly G-string. Silver sandals and a big smile completed the look. Khalifa wore a statement-making shirt over slim pants and classic shoes.

We give both ladies props for their daring ensembles while silently praying this does not catch on outside of the VMAs. Now we’re looking for you to weigh in.

Iggy Azalea's First House of Style Episode: Watch It Here!

Aug/07/2014 at 09:30 AM ET

No need to insert a “Fancy” joke here: Iggy Azalea’s first episode as the new host of House of Style has arrived, and she really is that fancy. The rapper (who is at least partly responsible for, you know, all your favorite singles this summer) added another bullet point to her résumé — and you can see the results in the video above.

Azalea filmed eight short-form digital episodes of the iconic MTV show, stepping into high heels once filled by Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijn and Karlie Kloss. She kicks things off by going vintage shopping with Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott (if you’re loving her marigold crop top and matching asymmetrical pencil skirt it’s Bec & Bridge!), and upcoming episodes will include a behind-the-scenes music video visit with Rita Ora and a VMA episode during the August 24 broadcast.

RELATED PHOTOS: Obsessed or hot mess? Vote now on these daring celebrity styles!

In the debut episode, Azalea and Scott visit L.A.’s Resurrection boutique to find the musician a Madonna-circa-Blonde-Ambition blazer, and they nail it on the first try. But the two don’t stop there, trying on one major style statement after another with Scott’s incisive commentary throughout. See what the fashionable duo ends up with (and see if you don’t have a hard time restraining yourself from flying to L.A. to pick up all their rejects!).

What do you think of her House of Style debut? Who do you want to see her talk to next?
