On Monday evening stars descended on the Radio City Music Hall in New York for the 35th annual MTV Video Music Awards.

As always, the celebs bought their A-game to the pink carpet and the star-studded arrivals hall was filled with glitz, glamour and, of course, sartorial statements.

Although Blake Lively, Millie Bobby Brown, Jennifer Lopez and Kylie Jenner led the best dressed in demure evening ensembles.

Others, such as veteran red carpet rule breakers Amber Rose and Blac Chyna, went for a more boundary-breaking approach in risqué looks.

Wearing the most head-turning outfit of the evening was Amber Rose, who arrived in a set of unmissable red latex lingerie. The striking red body came complete with over-the-knee boots, gloves, mask and a whip.

Blanc Chyna also left little to the imagination, wearing a pink chainmail two-set with nothing but a white thong underneath. The outfit was made a little more regal by a matching cape, though...

Having your pants on show was a popular trend on the night.

Winnie Harlow and Rita Ora went for see-through designer dresses, meanwhile model Shanina Shaik opted for a transparent lace jumpsuit.

And, the outrageous outfits did not stop there.

Reality TV star Sky went for a Janet Jackson-inspired nipple pastie, Nicki Minaj wore a nude bodysuit by Off-White and singers Dreamdoll and Tenya Taylor chose to make a bold statement by wearing chaps.
