The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) event has traditionally showcased some of the most outrageous fashion moments of celebrities, movie stars, singers and fashion icons. And, 2016 will hopefully be no different as A-listers such as Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, and even DJ Khaled join forces to honour the best of music during the MTV VMAs.
Judging from the history of the awards show, edgy and quirky trends seem to rule the red carpet events of the VMAs. Whether it is "bare it all" look or "out of the box" style, stars like Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, and Nicki Minaj unfailingly surprise with their outfits.
The event will be broadcast live on Sunday, 28 August from New York City's Madison Square Garden.
Before the 33<sup>rd annual awards show goes live, here's a little refresher of the top 10 outrageous MTV VMAs fashion moments compiled byIBTimes UK.
The pop star took imagination to another level with her silver be-jewelled outfit by Versace during the MTV Video Music Awards 2015.
The Poker Face singer turned heads at the awards show in 2010 in a dress made out of raw beef. Designed by Franc Fernandez, the controversial outfit has been preserved for display.
The Trinidadian-born singer is known to surprise her fans with her quirky taste in fashion. But in 2011, the rapper clearly took it to a different level with this candy-shop inspired ensemble.
2016 will mark the comeback for the pop legend after her last performance in 2007 MTV VMAs. On more than one occasion, Spears has given her fans a taste of her outstanding style during the VMAs. Apart from this revealing 2015 dress, the singer made headlines in 2001 when she stepped into the stage with a snake draped around her shoulders.
The chat show host's 2014 attire at the MTV VMAs red carpet made headlines. Rose rocked a thong and metallic chain ensemble during the event.
The reality TV star displayed her svelte figure in a Balmain beaded short dress at MTV VMAs 2014. Kardashian rocked her raven locks with the revealing number.
Recreating Britney Spears' one of the most iconic looks, the Roar songstress sported a custom denim Versace dress with Riff Raff at MTV VMAs 2014.
The ever-stylish Beyonce seldom makes a red carpet mistake, but the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards was a different story as the R&B singer stepped in a gold-hued attire. Along with the odd pant-dress, the singer sported an over-the-top hairstyle at the fashion event.
Candyman hitmaker Aguilera made headlines for all the wrong reasons when she walked the MTV VMAs 2002 red carpet in a barely-there two-piece attire. Donning a scarf for a top and a micro-mini denim skirt, the songstress clearly shocked her fans with her choice of outfit.
Lil' Kim rocked a lavender jumpsuit at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards that almost bared her assets. Designed by her stylist Misa Hylton, the floral number included a tiny sequin pattern that covered her modesty.
