Last night's MTV Video Music Awards saw the best of the best from the worlds of music and entertaining celebrate the greatest musicians of the past 12 months. Stars and celebs donned their finest outfits for the VMAs' pink carpet (red is so last century, y'know?), but one dress in particular has really set tongues wagging - Tana Mongeau's.

What was Tana wearing at the VMAs?

Tana's VMAs dress was a take on a garment from graduate designer Taylor Goldenberg's thesis collection - the "Pink Champagne" dress. Watch the original version being walked at New York Fashion week below:

While Tana's dress was well-received by fans and fashion mags, pal Elijah Daniel couldn't help but throw a little friendly shade toward the outfit's unusual, draped sleeves.

"Hello 911 a woman broke into my Grandmother's home and beat her up and took her curtains and sewing kit," Elijah tweeted.

Tana swiftly clapped back, reminding Elijah that whatever, he thinks of her dress, at least she got to walk the VMAs' pink carpet.

"Tweeted from home," Tana pointed out in response to Elijah's tweet.

But how did the dress go down with fans? Pretty well, actually. One wrote that it made tana look like a "badass princess," while another said, "if you don't love Tana Mongeau's VMA outfit you don't know fashion."

Shade or no shade, Tana's dress was a memorable moment that got people talking. And isn't that what fashion (and the VMAs in general) all about?


Tana wasn't the only YouTuber serving looks at the VMA's last night

Former Team 10 member Tessa Brooks took the pink carpet by storm in a deep aubergine dress with plunging neckline and sickening shoulder pads. Safe to say, the competition was SHOOK, and we stan a statement shoulder for any occassion.
