The "Teen Mom OG" alum showed up on the red carpet wearing a costume store version of Wonder Woman's iconic getup, which she enhanced via bluish green hair, superhero nail art and an "OG" shoutout on her arm. Though she provided no explanation for the look, she used the added attention to snag selfies with half a dozen stars, from Nick Cannon and Heidi Klum to Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles and Madison Kocian.
"Thanks Heidi & Nick for being seat buddies at #VMAs #mtv," Farrah captioned one of many (many) pics posted on Instagram over the course of the night.
Is it just us or does Nick look desperate to get out of the photo?
Other photos included Farrah with a gracious looking pair of gymnasts …

Despite all the posts, we never learned why she opted for a costume. We did, however, get a reminder about what a cruel world social media can be. Most of Farrah's photos sparked negative and in many cases unprintable comments, while sites like the Daily Mail branded Farrah among the event's worst dressed.
Pregnant "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans, meanwhile, kept her look glamorous and relatively conservative in a long nude gown.
Speaking to Us Weekly a few days before the VMAs, Farrah was supportive of Jenelle, whose life with boyfriend David Eason has seemed happy and stable in recent months.
"I'm actually really proud of her that she stopped doing drugs," Farrah said.
"She definitely wants to try to find a better man to hopefully marry and have a bigger family with, if she wants to. … I see her taking the initiative to totally change up things to be more welcoming to her mom. That's a hard thing thinking back to their past of her mom trying to take her child away."
