Over the years, the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet has offered an opportunity for celebrities to go wild and showcase some of their weirdest and wackiest fashions – and it seems that this year was no different.
From over-the-top sparkles to glittery capes to an alien-inspired ensemble, the red carpet at this year’s awards ceremony at The Forum in Los Angeles, California, was overrun with fashion faux pas.
Leading the list of worst dressed disasters at this year’s awards show was MTV star Farrah Abraham, who arrived on the red carpet in a too-tight pair of white pants which she had paired with an over-the-top pair of metallic gold boots that looked more like a tacky candy wrapper than a designer must-have.

The 60s called… Reality star Caitlin Valtierra, who rose to fame on MTV show Teen Mom, wore an unflattering pair of pink flared pants and a clashing floral shirt
Joining her on the worst dressed list was her Teen Mom co-star Caitlin Valtierra who donned an incredibly ensemble of pink flared, ruffled trousers, and a clashing floral top – both of which did little to complement her figure.
Adding an additional color catastrophe into the mix was her hair, which had been dyed in various rainbow shades and further clashed with her purple and yellow blouse.
