8:07 PM – The Kardashians are here, and Kylie is wearing exactly what I wanted to wear. :(

8:10 PM – I-g-g-y arrived looking like a GD CYBORG in Atelier Versace. Slicked back hair, mirrored silver gown.

Gaby WIlson

8:07 PM – Gwenabees, your queen is here in hot, HOT pink. Is it L.A.M.B.? It is!

Gaby Wilson

8:01 PM – Oh. My. Gosh. Nicki Minaj is here. The crowd can’t decide whether it wants to chant her name or “Baby Got Back.” TBH, I can’t either. She’s in gold animal print, and it’s so wild but so tame compared to that 2011 candy raver joint.

7:59 PM – I would like a tutorial on how to make Kiesza’s braided pompadour. And how to not look like Minnie Mouse while wearing a large bow–she’s an apparent expert at both of those things.

7:54 PM – The carpet slowed down for a bit, which made for a HUGE welcome for Sam Smith, who is Gucci suited and booted (but no tie because, hi, this is the VMAs).

7:46 PM – Solange wasn’t kidding about taking a break from those prints. She’s in all black and navy, solid but still sparkly. Also, NBD, her eyelashes are RED. WHAT?!

7:44 PM – Chanel Iman–another Yonce girl, BTW–is also in Balmain.

Gaby Wilson

7:40 PM – Angel Haze and Ireland Baldwin just might win for cutest couple. Also, Angel is in ALL of the coolest designers: helmut lang, Raf Simons, Alexander Wang.

7:37 PM – I would kill to be wearing Holland Roden’s dress right now. White, mesh, BREATHABLE, which is essential out here where I am drowning in my own sweat.

Gaby Wilson

7:35 PM – The Yonce ladies Joan and Jourdan are here and TOWERING over everyone. They are so freaking beautiful, wow. Joan and Jourdan are both wearing Balmain and, um, Joan told me I look cool and touched my shorts so I think I’m a Yonce girl now? Where’s my membership card? Is there an initiation? Was that it?

Gaby Wilson

7:31 PMAmber Rose is having a Rose McGowan moment, y’all. She and Wiz are both in Laurel DeWitt. You better work.

Gaby Wilson

7:30 PM – Wowwww Nick Jonas just killed me with a Vivenne Westwood chain closure suit jacket. Chains + navy tartan = #notnormcore.

7:29 PMAriana is here in leather moto Moschino. Leather in this weather is ambitious, but she’s making it #WERK.

7:27 PM – Sarah Hyland just walked by in a suede KaufmanFranco and the back of this dress is RIDICULOUS.

Gaby Wilson

7:12 PM – Eddie Huang just dropped in with the eggplant suit.

Gaby Wilson

7:01 PMFaking It’s Katie Stevens is here looking super chic in head-to-toe immaculate white lace.

6:55 PM – Also there are the loudest screams right for human rainbow Kesha. She’s wearing sparkly nude, though, to let the hair shine. And man, does it.

6:53 PM – Charli XCX is slayyyying in a tiger striped Moschino dress. She’s got a Vivienne Westwood clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.

Gaby Wilson

6:50 PM – Becky G and Ingrid Nilsen are here holding it down. Super feeling the juxtaposition of Becky’s edgy Ferre number COVERED in spikes next to Ingrid’s candy-colored Christian Siriano.

Gaby Wilson

6:47 PM – Unrelated: the crowd here vacillates between screaming and reciting “Baby Got Back.”

6:46 PM – Lucy Hale just arrived and quickly ducked out to begin her gig as the pre-show host. She has the most enviable messy pony.

6:43 PM – On the carpet with our Red Carpet Report queen Rachel Antonoff! She designed her outfit (duh) and is serving tasteful visible underwear realness. Her shoe game too strong for you.

4:10 PM — Fueling up on donuts and STILL wearing a sports bra as a shirt because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It’s finally here, you guys! The day we’ve been waiting for since last year’s show ended—the 2014 Video Music Awards. The brand new Forum is ready for performances by Sam Smith, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Nicki Minaj, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Beyonce, and more. We are also ready. We are so, so ready.

We’ll be keeping you up-to-date on every single thing we see on the red carpet right here in Inglewood. If Taylor Swift has a new ’do, you’ll know. If Nicki Minaj arrives in a mask again, we’ll let you know. If two people show up in the same thing, you’ll get an update. We also are fortunate to have the help of Rachel Antonoff who, as host MTV.com’s Red Carpet Report, will be getting into the #FASHUN nitty-gritty with everyone she can.

The pre-show—hosted by Lucy Hale and featuring performances from Charli XCX and Fifth Harmony—kicks off on MTV starting at 8 p.m. EST. We’ll be updating throughout the day, though, so keep checking in for all thangs VMA, all day.

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are a wrap! Stick with us for the most talked-about moments, red carpet photos, the VMA winners list and more.
