It’s no secret that the craziest, most out-there fashions run rampant at the MTV VMAs—watching one celeb try to up the shock factor on the next is practically a spectator sport.

But it’s not every year that we see someone slay a look that so perfectly walks the line between gasp-inducing and awe-inducing as Nicki Minaj did this year.

Nicki’s mesh-paneled blue dress boasts more cutouts and strappy bits than we ever thought possible, but somehow, paired with an ultra curve-hugging mermaid silhouette, this dress is totally mesmerizing.

Also, it was clear that Nicki was having a total blast in this incredible gown.

The best part? You can actually buy the dress online yourself, for those moments where you really, really (did we say REALLY??) want to be noticed. The Cobalt Gown by brand Bao Tranchi can be yours for just $1,500. Just make sure you place your order at least three weeks before your big night, since it’s custom made.

And here’s a shot of the back, from Bao Tranchi’s website. EQUALLY Gorgeous.
