This Is What The VMA Red Carpet Looked Like In 2000

Justin Timberlake in a turtleneck. Bye.

Are you ready for the 2015 Video Music Awards? We are SO ready. In order to fully prepare for the highly-anticipated, Miley Cyrus-hosted event, we've been taking a look back at past shows and some of the #FASHUN that ruled the red carpet years ago. Today we're focusing on the 2000 VMAs, which, you may recall, is the year Britney Spears performed "Oops...I Did It Again" in a sparkly, nude-colored outfit.

We dug through the archives and found the best red carpet fashion from the memorable show—it may not feel like that long ago, but, um, a quick glance at the red carpet reveals that we've come a long way since then.

    J. Lo went with all white everything ensemble, which included a bedazzled crop top courtesy of Sean John, aka the clothing line of her date, Puff Daddy.

    While the previous year Lil' Kim wore one of the most memorable VMA outfits of all time—purple pasties, hiii—she followed up with this orange number.

    BB Christina was at the show repping "What A Girl Wants" in a dress that could only work, basically, on a breeze-less night. Fortunately, everything went smoothly.

  • Gisele

    The ability to pull off this turtleneck dress underscores why Gisele is a supermodel and we're, well, not.

    Sisqo opted for the ever-popular matching leather jacket and pants with no shirt look.

    Before she took the stage in her iconic sparkly performance outfit, Britney kept it low-key on the carpet in a black dress. Also, those feathery shoes.

    Pink really took her first VMA by storm, wearing a fur-trimmed jacket and jeans that somehow stayed up despite no waistband.

    Aaliyah may have worn this dress 15 years ago, but it continues to inspire VMA red carpet looks today.

  • Eve

    Eve matched her boots and fur stole perfectly to her hair AND lip color. That's commitment.

  • Destiny's Child

    Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle matched in studded leather corsets to pick up the Moonman for Best R&B Video.

  • Heidi Klum

    Heidi Klum joined Christina Aguilera and Eve in the one-shoulder dress trend—also joined Gisele in reminding you of why she's a supermodel.

    Julia Stiles kept the satin trend that was everywhere on the 1995 VMA red carpet alive and well in 2000.

    A blonde Mandy Moore—it's been a while, BB!—went with all khaki everything, from her sheer jacket to her pointy boots.

    From Justin's turtleneck to JC's shiny snakeskin pants, there's a lot to take in with this photo. We'll leave you to it.
