At The 2014 'VMA' Red Carpet, Leather Reigned Supreme Proving We Should All Add Some Biker-Inspired Pieces To Our Fall Wardobes

The red carpet at the VMAs is a place where stars can flaunt their slightly edgier fashion choices. And as far as trends go, we've seen them all: cut outs, thigh-high slits, crazy prints, and even meat. (OK, this wasn't a trend, just Lady Gaga. But you get the point.) But this year, the trend is something much more simple — good old leather. From Ariana Grande to the host of the red carpet herself, Lucy Hale, the stars were loving that shiny stuff. It makes me wish the carpet itself had been made of leather. But I'm taking this trend as a sign. I'll be busting out my trusty, leather jacket for the upcoming Fall/Winter season — and hunting down a leather crop top ASAP.

I love that Lloyd experimented with a colored leather, I just wish she didn’t blend into the carpet.

Not ready to go all leather? Add a cool accent, like Dobrev’s belt.
