The most happening city last night? Milan, Italy — the location of this year's MTV European Music Awards. The event was drenched in big names: Justin Bieber cranked out a performance, Ed Sheeran played host, and Macklemore headlined the opening act. In other news, everyone found yet another reason to love Ruby Rose thanks to her comment on gender fluidity.
But let's put the music discussion aside for now; apart from the tunes and grooves, another vital aspect of the MTV EMAs was its sartorial department. For the style conscious out there, the EMAs was yet another platform for celebrities to showcase their striking ensembles. No garment was left behind — everything from casual cool leather jackets to risque silhouettes made the cut. The American MTV Music Awards in August may have had a plethora of big names and bold outfits, but its European sibling had its fair share of celebrities and designers too.
While you may have been halfway across the world (or preparing to call it a night), don't worry about missing out on the best dressed stars. Check out the seven hottest looks to hit the red carpet at the MTV EMAs and prepare re-live the night all over again.
1. Ruby Rose
It only took one episode of Orange Is The New Black to make my obsession with Ruby Rose official. And even though Stella is long gone from Litchfield, Ruby Rose is still gracing the real world with her heart-stopping presence (can we have a moment for those eyes?). The event co-host rocked a sleek black tuxedo complete with an asymmetrical jacket and a healthy amount of finger candy — the more rings, the better. Honorary mention goes to her ear cuff, which was equal parts sparkly and dangerous.
2. Ashley Benson
Looks like the draped jacket look has infiltrated the celebrity circuit. While fashion bloggers have popularly mastered this styling trick, Ashley Benson was not afraid to adopt the same method for her red carpet ensemble. A classic black blazer polishes up Benson's patterned dress that offers just the right amount of skin. Seductive yet subtle is the theme here.
3. Shay Mitchell
Hanna wasn't the only Pretty Little Liars starlet that showed up at the MTV EMAs this year. Emily made the trek as well, and Shay Mitchell appeared radiant as ever. Striking a leg à la Angelina Jolie, Mitchell dazzled in a white gown complete with an intense V-neck and slit cut. Goals.
4. Justin Bieber
Introducing red: Justin Bieber's new power color. Matching the red carpet has never looked better.
5. Hailey Baldwin
Does a Baldwin ever disappoint on the red carpet? I say no — especially since Hailey Baldwin nailed the intricate, cleavage-baring frock.
6. Martin Garrix
Meet Martin Garrix — your next 19-year-old heartthrob with insane music chops. The Dutch DJ snagged the best electronic artist title at the MTV EMAs this year, shunning nominees Calvin Harris, Avicii, and Major Lazer to the sidelines. His winning look? A vibrant red leather jacket with edgy black accents — very reminiscent of Michael Jackson's Thriller if you ask me.
Sisters Miriam and Olivia are the talented duo behind Nervo. Not only are they the producers of party-perfect EDM tracks, but they're also ultimate tastemakers when it comes to style. The Australian sisters opted for the dramatic route when it came to their dresses — transparent fabric and crafty patterns rounded up the look.
You may have missed the full European Music Awards show, but now you've seen the best of the red carpet. And, let's be honest, that's kind of the best part.
