THE HIT LIST

THROWBACK TO THE 2000 VMAS

Michelle had just turned 20 and Beyoncé and Kelly were still 19 when the R’n’B trio won their first VMA. Of course they were wearing matching all-leather outfits.

9. JULIA STILES
After her leading part in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) Julia Stiles had become a star by 2000. Despite her newfound stardom, the actress’s dress (and miniature purse!) looked more school dance than red carpet.

Justin Timberlake in ostrich leather trousers, JC Chasez in a foot-long fur coat and a pair of silver-coloured snakeskin trousers, and last but not least, Lance Bass in a Canadian suit with rhinestone flame details. The boy band owned the red carpet.

7. GISELE BÜNDCHEN
The supermodel showed up in a turtleneck dress with an amazingly asymmetrical hem. And she pulled it off. Let’s just say most non-supermodels probably wouldn’t have.

Where are the hemlines on your jeans, Pink?

5. CHRISTINA AGUILERA
With multi-coloured hair, a very visible thong and a two-piece (and one of the night’s most daring) dress, 19-year-old Christina Aguilera was down with some of the biggest trends from 2000.

4. LIL’ KIM
Xtina’s outfit was one of the night’s most daring, but she was completely upstaged by Lil’ Kim, who came to the award show wearing this orange creation.

3. EMINEM
The Real Slim Shady won Video Of The Year and brought dozens of bleached-haired doppelgangers with him. It was still pretty easy to spot the rapper.

2. JENNIFER LOPEZ AND SEAN COMBS
J-Lo stepped on the red carpet in an all-white outfit featuring a bedazzled bandana, and then boyfriend Diddy by her side. This is true millennium nostalgia! 

Britney Spears on the red carpet and on stage, Getty Images.

1. BRITNEY SPEARS
18-year-old Britney Spears was already a veteran – kind of – when she showed up at the VMAs in 2000. Later this night she changed from this modest black dress into her iconic “nude” bodysuit, and did one of her careers most defining performances. Remember this?
