The Cuban-American Camila Cabello had five nominations: Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best Pop, Best Choreography and Song of the Year. She was the winner of the Video of the Year and Artist of the Year awards. This singer, famous for her hit "Havana" and who demonstrates the Latin presence in the American music industry, wore a blue and white Oscar de la Renta dress that she combined with silver sandals. A little risky but flattering for the artist.
Cardi B is the artist in which the world has its eyes set. This rapper, winner of three VMAs, was nominated twelve times, sometimes for two different songs in the same category. Far from having only one hit, Cardi B was nominated for several songs: "Dinero", winner of Best Collaboration and nominated for Best Latin Video; "I like it", winner of Song of Summer; "Finesse", nominated for Best Video, Best Choreography, Best Collaboration, Best Editing and Song of the Year; "Girls like you" in collaboration with Maroon 5, nominated for Song of Summer; and "Bartier", nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video.
The rapper, also winner of the prize for Best New Artist, wore for the pink carpet a velvety fuchsia short dress that combined with green jewelry. This is the first appearance of the artist after having her baby. In addition to her risky combination of dress and jewelry, she wore a new look: a pixie cut.

Undoubtedly, Jennifer Lopez is the most talked about artist after this ceremony of the VMAs and is another proof of the female Latina strength in the awards organized by MTV. Her presentation was one of the most commented of the awards. She sang her hits "Waiting For Tonight", "Get On The Floor", "Love Don’t Cost A Thing" and danced as we have seen her do since the 90s.
In addition, she shares with Cardi B the prize for Best Collaboration for his song "Dinero" and was awarded with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which is given to artists in recognition of his musical career and his contributions to pop culture. She wore a completely silver garment: dress, jewelry, envelope type wallet and sandals. She was undoubtedly one of the best dressed of the night and broke with the tendency of short dresses in these awards.
The silver and bright colors were the protagonists of the VMAs. Ariana Grande also wore a mostly silver outfit that consisted of a silver geometric futuristic dress and black boots with bright up to the knee. The artist did not wear her characteristic ponytail and wore her hair loose. She was accompanied by her boyfriend Pete Davidson and performed live at the ceremony and sang the song "God is a woman". The artist of just 25 years won the award for Best Pop Video with her song "No Tears Left to Cry".
Nicki Minaj's was one of the riskiest outfits of the evening. The rapper, winner of Best Hip-Hop Video, wore a transparent cream veil dress with a body cream and thick belt black at the waist. This is a design by the Off-White brand. The song "Chun-Li", for which she won the award for Best Hip-Hop Video, refers to a character in the video game Street Fighter and was released in April of this year.
