The most memorable and iconic fashion moments from the MTV Video Music Awards

The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards airs this Sunday night. Miley Cyrus is hosting and after her outrageous 2013 performance, we can only assume we’ll be in for a treat.

This year’s awards are already shrouded in controversy, after Taylor Swift's reaction to Nicki Minaj tweeting her disdain at missing out on a nomination for Video of the Year for ‘Anoconda’. Kanye West is being awarded the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and performances are due from Justin Bieber, Pharrell and A$AP Rocky.

From the first ever VMAs in 1984 when Madonna rocked out in a bridal-inspired dress singing Like A Virgin to Britney Spears accessorising her outfit with a live python, Lady Gaga's meat dress and Miley Cyrus’ infamous latex undies, we chart the most memorable fashion moments from the history of the VMAs.
