Ariana's 2016 VMA Outfit Is A Must-See

If you need an excuse to watch the 2016 VMAs, Ariana Grande should definitely be right up there with Beyoncé and Adele. This year, the "Into You" singer is killing it with five nominations of her own, and a performance. (Yay!) But before we get to that, let's talk about Ariana's 2016 VMA red carpet look, because she was flawless.

Not that I'm surprised. Ariana is always on point, whether it's on stage, on the red carpet, walking down the street — wherever. Apart from her perfect hair (seriously, how does she always have the best ponytail on the planet?), the singer is known for looking super cute at award shows. At last year's VMAs, for instance, she performed "Love Me Harder" on stage with The Weeknd and looked stunning in a glittery red two-piece.

And remember two years before that? She walked the 2013 VMA red carpet in the most adorbs floral print dress and white heels. Her hair was down (gasp), but she still looked quintessentially Ariana. (Also, I want that whole outfit.)

This year's look was no different in terms of total and utter chicness. The singer walked the white carpet in a lacy off-the-shoulder look, complete with choker and sleek pants. She also donned her signature pony, but this time changed things up with some crimps. I can't say I've ever seen her show off this 90s throwback, but I'm kind of loving it.

Ariana will return to the stage with Nicki Minaj to perform "Side to Side." If her pre-show look has anything to say, I think we can expect quite the performance outfit.

Looking so sleek.
