The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards air live from the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., tonight (Aug. 24) and before the show gets underway, the stars hit the red carpet to show off their best attire. From chain-link lingerie looks worn by Amber Rose to Solange's sleek pantsuit, the bold and the beautiful were out in full force. And we can't forget about the guys like Sam Smith, who was suited up, and Jason Derulo shine bright in all-white. Check out The Boombox rundown of the red carpet below.
