Watching this year’s VMAs red carpet was like watching the arrivals for the Winter Olympics. And by Winter Olympics arrivals, we mean … ice skaters.

It wasn’t just young up-and-comers who went this route, though they were definitely out en masse. Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, and Hailee Steinfeld all went with short, spangly numbers, as well as four of the Final Five—Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, Laurie Hernandez and Simone Biles—who attended the show.
