From Lady Gaga's meat dress in 2010 to Miley Cyrus' metallic chandelier look two years ago, the MTV Video Music Awards has seen a fair share of outrageous outfits. This year, while the stars got the skin-flaunting memo, most of them went down a (surprisingly) sophisticated route by showing up in sexy yet refined ensembles. Gal Gadot who was there to present the Video of the Year award (that went to Kendrick Lamar) showed up in an intricate Prabal Gurung number that exudes femininity like no other; Alessandra Ambrosio rocked a Balmain get-up with see-through panels and lace-up details that help to break off the intricate look, while stars such as Heidi Klum and Hailey Baldwin dare to bare by flaunting their décolletages and toned pins in a Peter Dundas metallic gown and Zuhair Murad V-neck jumpsuit respectively.

 

Below, all the eye-catching looks that'll make you do a double take:
