Doja Cat, Lil Nas X and Kacey Musgraves pack the punch in purple at the VMAs

The MTV Video Music Awards is never short of outrageous moments.

And celebs took note as they showed off their wildest styles while gracing the red carpet of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night.

Lil Nas X, Kacey Musgraves and hostess Doja Cat all stunned in shades of purple, proving just who was part of music royalty.








Doja Cat – who was hosting the evening’s affair – was the star of the night, strutting down the red carpet wearing a toga-inspired Vivienne Westwood look with a black bustier and drapey plum fabric.

Amping up the sex appeal, she added stacked red platform heels and latex thigh-high stockings for a raunchy touch.

The Say So hitmaker added some prehistoric panache via a gleaming stone necklace and matching earrings. 

Continuing the wild theme, she had her hair styled in voluminous black and scarlet curls and stuck her tongue out for the camera while flashing some iridescent eyeshadow.

Elsewhere was Kacey Musgraves, who put a groovy twist on Southern Belle style wearing a fabulous feathered hat with a silk Valentino couture party dress and red leather opera gloves. Rounding out the look, she slipped into a pair of Cinderella-esque clear heels.
