    This weekend saw A-lister’s step up their style stakes for the MTV Europe Music Awards 2016. This years awards were held on stage at Ahoy Rotterdam.

    Pop’s biggest names hit the red carpet and everyone from Zara Larsson to Tallia Storm were in attendance.

    Bright, fun and cool was the theme of the evening with Charli XCX leading the pack. She wore a super-fun pink crop top and flared trouser outfit from House of Holland and Tallia Storm wore an outfit from Fendi.

    Jourdan Dunn and Winnie Harlow were some of the supermodels in attendance and both looked stunning in dramatic black gowns.

    The trophies were purple and were a tribute to Prince after the star tragically passed away in April earlier this year.
