VMAs: All the Over-The-Top Accessories From Snakes to Men on Leashes

Stars arrived on the red carpet at the 2019 MTV VMAs with some wild accessories.

The MTV Video Music Awards are notorious for their wild and crazy red carpet looks. Stars often show up after checking their inhibitions at the door. Monday’s red carpet was no exception with several stars arriving with noteworthy accessories from live snakes to men on leashes. Here, a look at this year’s most extra accessory moments.

Leashed Men

YouTube Influencer Nikita Dragun arrived in New Jersey wearing a custom look by “fantasy” designer L.O.C.A., including a pink nipple, a pink feather boa and the ultimate red carpet accessories — men on leashes wearing black sunglasses and fingerless gloves.

Despite the VMAs having a history of snake bites (a dancer for Nicki Minaj was nipped in 2014), two stars arrived at the  with snakes draped around their shoulders. In a copycat ode to Britney Spears who brought along a sunny-colored snake to the 2001 VMAs, Internet personality Tana Mongeau walked the carpet with a yellow snake to complement her gold dress by Nicola Bacchilega.

Singer/songwriter H.E.R. arrived wearing a floral suit from Valentino’s fall 2019 collection with one of her pet “noodles” around her neck. The singer posted on Instagram about bringing her snake-slash-accessory to the VMAs: “I got 5 noodles at home. I try to bring them everywhere I can because people love them and they are really cool.”

Armageddon-esque Mask

Hip-hop group Naughty by Nature arrived fully prepared for the end of the world. Treach wore an Armageddon-inspired white mask with netting over the eyes and mouth area, similar to the mask Nick Cannon accessorized with at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, adding a cane and a cluster of necklaces including a large cross pendant.


Blinged-out Cellphone

Actress Keke Palmer walked the carpet in a stunning yellow sequined, high-neck gown by Yousef Aljasmi with a matching  blinged out retro cellphone accessory. Clueless, anyone?

Another Supreme season has arrived with another range of ridiculous accessories. As the brand officially turns 25 this year, it continues to explore new items to feature its trademark box logo. The accessories this season showcase a wide array of collaborations including practical tools, like a Chapman screwdriver set, and subtle kitchen flexes, like a Stanley coffee canister. But before Eric Whiteback makes an Instagram video with every single accessory from the brand’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection, we ranked some of our favorites.

10. Supreme Post-It Flags

Shouts out to all my thoroughbred nerds out there who care about their books and won’t ever violate the sanctity of parchment. Now, you can mark down the pages of some of your favorite manuscripts in style with these Supreme Post-It flags. No more dog eared pages. –Lei Takanashi

9. Supreme Plated Dumbbells

Thankfully, these gold and silver dumbbells only weigh 5 pounds and USPS Priority Mail has a 70 pound weight limit. So your frail arms will have no problem tossing these into a flat rate Priority Mail box when you make a whopping profit of reselling these, which retail for $30, on Grailed. Congratulations, player. –Lei Takanashi

8. Supreme Voodoo Doll

The perfect Supreme accessory to have on hand when you are wild heated about that L you took on the latest drop. Take your frustration out on resellers and bots by sticking bobby pins into a plush voodoo doll. Wow, it must feel incredibly satisfying to use this doll to curse an OP with a “STD” or simply “SHIT.”  Wouldn’t your mother be proud to find this in your bedroom. –Lei Takanashi

7. Supreme Timex Watch

Another piece that adds to Supreme’s early ‘90s drug dealer range of accessories this season. –Lei Takanashi

6. Supreme Hanging Lantern

A traditional Japanese paper lantern that you can stare at while eating Top Ramen in your college dorm room for the next four weeks, which is all you can afford after buying it. –Lei Takanashi

5. Supreme Baccarat Dom Perignon Flute Set

This set of crystal champagne flutes is the perfect accessory to have ready to go by your laptop every Thursday morning. Pop a bottle of bubbly and toast to defeating the bots once again. –Mike DeStefano

4. Supreme x Pyrex ‘2 Cup’ Measuring Cup

Supreme stuck to a theme for some of its Fall/Winter 2019 accessories by stamping its signature branding on a handful of items commonly linked to dealing narcotics. This Pyrex measuring cup fits the bill, but we recommend you use it to bake a cake for your buddies or something. No need to break the law guys. –Mike DeStefano

3. Supreme Knoll Wassily Chair

The Wassily chair has been around since the 1920s. Its unique look and steel construction make for an already striking piece of furniture, but Supreme ups the wow factor with Spinneybeck Italian leather covered in leopard print. Given the fact that a regular version costs almost $2,800, this accessory won’t be for everyone, but will be a solid addition to any living room if you can afford it. It’s also nice to see the streetwear brand not just paint something red and slap their logo on it. –Mike DeStefano 

2. Supreme Honda CRF 250R

If you’ve been paying close attention to some of Supreme’s recent seasons, the writing was on the wall for this accessory to come to fruition. First, it was very limited quantities of the Coleman CT200U mini bike in June 2017. That was followed up by the Fox Racing collaboration in May 2018. A legit Honda CRF250 dirt bike is the next logical step. Like most of the brand’s larger accessories, expect this one to be pretty hard to purchase. Hopefully, Travis Pastrana can at least get his hands on one of these to bust out a double backflip in style. –Mike DeStefano 

1. Supreme Blu Burner Phone

This is “put a Box Logo on anything” at its finest. The connotations here are pretty obvious. If Walter White were a hypebeast, he’d be keeping one of these handy. Of course, we don’t condone those actions over here. The real question is, is anyone loyal enough to swap out their iPhone for the Box Logo Burner Phone? –Mike DeStefano
