The VMAs red carpet can bring with it the jaw-dropping, head-scratching, and all-out outrageous — but we've zeroed in on just the cream of the crop. With thigh-high slits, embellishments, plunging necklines, and sleek silhouettes, this set of five brought their A-game to Brooklyn. Taylor Swift channeled Old Hollywood glamour in a sexy, curve-hugging Hervé Léger gown. Jennifer Hudson wowed in a little houndstooth and leather, which she paired with equally posh pointed-toe pumps. Ciara made an entrance in a feather-trimmed Givenchy Haute Couture sheer gown, while Selena Gomez was a knockout in an Atelier Versace number. Shailene Woodley skipped the gown in favor of an on-trend crop top and printed skirt from Emilio Pucci Resort 2014. All of these style setters make red carpet dressing look easy — now comes the hard part: who gets your vote?
