Never underestimate the power of Normani and her kickass wardrobe. The 23-year-old singer showed up to the MTV VMAs on Monday night, and absolutely shut down the red carpet in a skin-baring Swarovski-crystal-covered Nicolas Jebran dress with a high-slit. If that wasn't enough, she tied the whole look together with silver hoops and studded matte red sandals. Phew, what. an. outfit.
Like her viral "Motivation" music video, it feels like Normani packed in a whole bunch of late '90s and early '00s nostalgia into this ensemble (the exposed midriff, sparkling crystals) while still making it completely her own. If this is what she chose to rock on the red carpet, we can't wait to see what she wears during her performance later in the show.
