2014 MTV Video Music Awards: Red Carpet

From Ariana to Usher, the stars were shining bright at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards at the Forum in L.A. on Sunday. Hip-hop, R&B, pop, and rock royalty paraded down the red carpet in some show-stopping looks.

Before opening the show, Jessie J was a goddess in a green Grecian gown, while her “bang Bang” collaborator Ariana Grande looked fierce in a tight black Moschino zipper outfit with thigh-high boots. She posed for photos with her grandmother before scurrying inside.

Amber Rose showed plenty of skin in a revealing beaded dress while walking hand-in-hand with her husband Wiz Khalifa.

Solange channeled Diana Ross with her big hair and black pantsuit, while Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks were matching in all white.

Nicki Minaj shimmered in an animal-print mini-dress and Iggy Azalea stunned in a silver Versace gown.
