The MTV Video Music Awards are an exciting, iconic part of the music industry that celebrates all of the creativity and hard work put into music videos. Every year, countless celebrities walk the red carpet with the hopes of walking away with a Moonman. Although not everyone can win an award, every celeb can be celebrated for their unique style on the red carpet. This year, we saw eye-catching looks from the industry’s best of the best, including household names like Taylor Swift, Lizzo, and Lil Nas X. Aside from soaking in all of the gorgeous fashion, we love finding designer dupes on Queenly!

It’s not uncommon for celebrities to wear designs worth thousands of dollars on the red carpet. It is a red carpet, after all! However, you don’t always have to drop this much dough on a red carpet-worthy look. It’s time for a 2022 VMA red carpet recap with some of our favorite designer dupes!

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s red carpet appearances have become increasingly rare over the past decade and each time she attends an award show, she ensures that it’s an iconic moment. The 2022 VMAs were no exception! Just like the eye-catching floral dress she wore at the 2021 Grammy Awards, Taylor’s “dripping in diamonds” look was designed by none other than Oscar de la Renta. This bold, ultra-glamorous look was the perfect choice for Taylor, as she ended up walking away with three Moonmen, including the award for Video of the Year for All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version.) Taylor’s historic night ended in the most iconic way imaginable: a surprise album announcement for TS10, Midnights.


Blackpink can’t stop making history! After becoming the first female K-pop group to perform at the VMAs, the girl group snatched up one of the hottest new awards: Best Metaverse Performance. While walking the red carpet, the ladies of Blackpink decided to wear complementary black outfits that highlighted each of their personal styles. Feel free to take your pick: two-piece, lace, long sleeves- they wore it all! No matter which member is your favorite, you’ll be able to steal any of their sleek, chic styles!

Chloe Bailey

This see-through style is here to stay! Chloe Bailey decided to embrace one of the hottest new styles for her red carpet appearance: exposed boning. This sexy, eye-catching style was perfect to celebrate the singer’s first VMA nomination for Best R&B Video. Although Chloe didn’t walk away with a Moonman, she can be sure that she stood out in this sheer, silver dress!


Shenseea might not be a name that you recognize off the bat, but this stellar singer has been steadily climbing up the ladder in the music industry. After collaborating with major artists like Christina Aguilera, Megan Thee Stallion, and Kanye West (and even earning a Grammy nomination for her work on Donda), Shenseea is making a stand-out name of her own! Broken mirror dresses have been trending all throughout 2022, and now Shenseea is embracing a similar, sexy style.

Melissa Gorga

It’s official- jumpsuits (and reality stars) are in! Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Melissa Gorga, proved that musicians aren’t the only ones invited to the VMAs.This sheer jumpsuit is all things sexy and proves that pants are formal enough for any event, including the red carpet! Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and into a designer jumpsuit for your next formal event. You won’t regret trying out this trend!
