While the 2019 VMAs honored the best when it came to music, the red carpet was proof that those stylish stars bring their best to the red carpet too.

The awards ceremony, which was held last night at the Prudential Center in Newark, handed out top awards to musicians like Taylor SwiftLil Nas X and the Jonas Brothers.

There were plenty of exciting musical performances, too, from up-and-comer Rosalía to Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, whose "Señorita" duet was so hot that even the other A-listers in the crowd went wild. 

Missy Elliot also took the stage to accept the iconic Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Fans were thrilled when she danced alongside her original hype girl, Alyson Stoner, who first appeared in "Work It" with the star back in 2003! 

And while we could go on for hours about Miley Cyrus' emotional "Slide Away" performance, some of the other scene stealers took place at the step-and-repeat before the ceremony even began!

After all, Swift showed up not only to open the show with "You Need to Calm Down" but dominate the red carpet, too. Her embellished Versace blazer-dress sparkled like the trophy she later took home for Video of the Year.

Speaking of that Moonman award, Lil Nas X arrived in a shimmering silver suit set that seemed to give a nod to the trophy's design. The artist shocked everyone when he beat out Swift and Ariana Grande by taking home his first-ever award when he won Song of the Year.

Normani also stunned in an ombré gown that was as red-hot as the carpet. Also serving a look in red was Lizzo, whose Moschino gown and feather boa made her just as much of a queen on the carpet as she is off of it.

Keke Palmer glowed in a gold, sparkling gown with a matching embellished phone accessory. Meanwhile, Rosalía brought old-school Hollywood glam to the carpet with a sleek black Burberry gown and matching gloves.

The hottest couple on stage also was one of the hottest on the carpet. Cabello and Mendes each turned heads in their ensembles, with the songstress in a white cut-out dress by Balmain and Mendes wearing a two-piece teal suit designed by Dolce & Gabanna.
