And on the red carpet of the VMAs 2022, stars didn’t hold back in the style department: Taylor Swift made a surprise appearance in a chandelier minidress, Lil Nas X went full showgirl in feathers, and Lizzo had all of Twitter talking in her voluminous cloud-like couture. .

The director of “All Too Well: The Short Film” was the belle of the (mirror) ball during Sunday’s show and shone especially for us in a crystal-covered Oscar de la Renta creation. Sparkling Christian Louboutin heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry elevated the sparkle factor even further.
