With performances from the likes of Bruno Mars, Kings of Leon and DNCE, we already knew we were in for quite the treat tonight at MTV’s European Music Awards, but we had no idea what to expect from the stars walking the event’s red carpet.

Though the celebs themselves, sans Nina Dobrev (whose recent lake retreat with BFF Julianne Hough gave us serious #VacationGoals) Charli XCX and a handful of others, may be foreign to us, style (or lack thereof!), is international: See for yourself as you take a peek at some of the night’s best (and worst!) looks below.
