‘Peekaboob’ was the biggest trend at the 2022 VMAs


Free the nipple, but make it fashion.

Bare chests were arguably the biggest red carpet trend at Sunday’s 2022 VMAs, with a handful of stars popping up in chest-focused getups that got everyone talking.

Brazilian megastar Anitta literally bared her heart in a corset crimson Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown cut low enough to reveal her entire left breast — which was covered in an intricate breastplate modeled after the blood-pumping organ.

Lil Nas X, meanwhile, treated the crowd to not one, but two different VMA ensembles that bare the chest, starting with a flamboyant feathered Harris Reed creation comprised of a larger-than-life headdress and crinoline, styled sans shirt.

Once at the Prudential Center, the rapper “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” changed into a long black dress completely covered in cutouts, including two that framed his pectoral muscles perfectly.

But none went as far as the Italian glam rock group Måneskin.

The Eurovision champions arrived at the show in matching embellished Gucci dresses that flashed plenty of flesh; drummer Ethan Torchio and vocalist Damiano David turned heads in a sheer corset and cape respectively, while bassist Victoria De Angelis channeled Lil’ Kim in a one-shoulder top showing off her shiny silver pasty.

But while performing the band’s “Supermodel” tune onstage, De Angelis rocked just a little too hard, with her blouse sliding off her shoulder to expose her. other chest.

Even though MTV dropped out during its wardrobe malfunction, the bassist kept playing – after all, the show must go on – and Måneskin fans weren’t happy their performance was interrupted, especially since frontman David’s assless dudes weren’t censored in the same way.

Victoria De Angelis
The top of Victoria De Angelis appeared to fall off during the performance.

“I’m still so mad that vmas are ruining maneskin’s performance, a guy without a shirt is fine, but if it’s a woman, suddenly it’s a problem and should it be censored? Get away with these bulls – t,’ one tweeted.

Ironically, De Angelis aimed for this double standard during her red carpet interview earlier in the evening.

“I think it’s very important for us to share a message of freedom in general,” she says told MTV. “So just for everyone to be free to be themselves and express who they are… and also to have more equality [between showing] a female body and a male body.”
