If you watched yesterday’s 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, then you know that Teyana Taylor did NOT come to play!
In her normal slay fashion, she ran the red carpet in a black and white ensemble that paid homage to Janet Jackson.
Taylor wore a white crop top, black pants and short bob, almost identical to the outfit Janet Jackson wore at the 1995 MTV VMAs.

Jackson and Taylor are not only twinning with their outfits. In 1995, Janet Jackson won the VMA for Best Choreography in a Video for her “Scream” video with her brother Michael Jackson. Taylor won the same award this year, for her choreography and dancing in Kanye West’s video “Fade”.
It’s clear that Janet Jackson is Teyana Taylor’s inspiration, but more than that, she’s following in her footsteps of greatness!
