Best and worst dressed at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards

The MTV VMAs are the perfect setting for huge fashion risks. This year was no exception with lots of big fashion wins and misses.

Nicki Minaj went for her signature sexy on the red carpet in a midnight blue gown with sexy sheer panels and plunging cutouts. While the artist definitely oozed glamour, the frock itself was a bit of a tacky mess. Kim Kardashian also rocked the sheer trend Sunday night -- and she totally perfected the "I just jumped out of bed" look in a tiny black ruched mini dress that was casually slipped off one shoulder. She polished off the sexy style with a set of strappy heels.
