Taylor Swift Pairs a Plunging Bodysuit With a See-Through Skirt at the MTV EMAs
Celebrities were out in force for the 2022 MTV EMAs, wearing an array of glamorous looks on the red carpet to kick off the annual award show. Taylor Swift led the star-studded event as the "Midnights" singer stopped for selfies with adoring fans in a jewel-encrusted ensemble, setting the fashion tone for the evening. Featuring a black bodysuit with spaghetti straps, Swift's David Koma dress included a netted skirt overlay with large embellished jewels that glistened in the spotlight. With simple black heels, hair swept into an intricate bun leaving her heavyset fringe the focal point, and a brush of silver eyeliner, the "Anti-Hero" singer brought the wow factor.
Taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany, this year's event was presented by Rita Ora and Taika Waititi, the first couple to host the awards bash. Ora chose a naked lace Elie Saab jumpsuit that was totally backless, meaning her tattoos were on full display. With floating eyeliner and her hair in subtle waves, she looked super loved-up with Waititi on her arm, although this look wasn't Ora's only outfit, having promised POPSUGAR some major fashion moments — and she did not disappoint. Throughout the show we saw feathered frocks, wig changes, leather corsets, and bandage catsuits, to name a few.
She was joined on the red carpet by Maya Jama, who opted for a black dress with transparent stripes and cape; Bebe Rexha in a structured blue velvet showstopper by Bad Binch Tongtong; and Lauren Spencer-Smith, who chose top-to-toe Barbiecore.
The evening was certainly one full of high energy and musical celebrations. Stormzy, Ava Max, and Lewis Capaldi all performed, but the focus was always on the winners. While Harry Styles led the nominations with seven, he took home two and wasn't the biggest winner of the evening. It was Swift's night as she bagged four out of the six she was nominated for, took an adorable selfie with Stormzy, and was certainly in the running for our best-dressed guest, too.
