Sorry, peanut butter and jelly, but Ashanti and cutout dresses are coming for your title as the ultimate match made in heaven. On Sunday evening, Ashanti debuted yet another sexy dress from her collection while attending the MTV VMAs, successfully one-upping the head-turner she wore to Fat Joe’s 51st birthday party. The singer walked the red carpet and later presented on stage in a black harness-style dress by Michael Costello, featuring a plethora of glittery straps that buckled in the front and extended all the way down her right leg. I mean, sheesh — no wonder Nick Cannon bowed down and smooched her hand on the red carpet!
With help from stylist Tim B, Ashanti accessorized her barely there dress with ankle-strap Jennifer Le heels, GBGH jewelry, and a floor-length braid. Read ahead to take a full look at Ashanti’s VMAs outfit, then catch up on what other celebrities in attendance wore for the star-studded night.
