The 2020 VMAs are quickly approaching! To celebrate ahead of the 37th annual ceremony, Us Weekly’s Stylish has rounded up some of the wildest hair and makeup looks of all time that are sure to make you laugh—or maybe make your jaw hit the floor.
Music and fashion are obviously a huge part of the evening, but red carpet beauty is equally as memorable. Ever since the first awards ceremony in 1984, stars have made history at this event for debuting unexpected makeup and hair looks that stand out and make headlines. That includes the good, the bad and some that fall somewhere in between.
Coming in as one of the top wildest VMAs makeup looks of all time is Pamela Anderson’s dark blue eyeshadow and lip liner from 1999. We’re not sure what was more attention-grabbing: that ’90s-glam makeup or her giant pink fuzzy hat that was an interesting choice to pair with her white corset top and sparkly bottoms. It’s one of the most memorable looks, well, ever, and Kim Kardashian agrees! The reality star recreated the Baywatch alum’s entire look for Halloween in 2018.
As for hair, there are so many contenders, but one of the all-time wildest is Lady Gaga’s beefy hair accessory from 2010. Every fan of the singer likely recalls her getup from that evening: an unforgettable meat dress designed by L.A. based artist Franc Fernandez and styled by Nicola Formichetti. She just had to complete the look by wearing a slab of meat in her pastel hair, otherwise, the look simply wouldn’t have been the same.
