Wonder Woman, is that you? In a rare appearance without her high ponytail, Ariana Grande put on her warrior face for the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. Her futuristic look featured a triangular metallic minidress, which could've doubled as a shield, and thigh-high gunmetal Le Silla boots.
We see Ariana Grande's sexy siren side more often than not, but did you know she can also play the girl-next-door role just as well?

Ariana Grande is probably the only person who can make a simple T-shirt look majorly fierce.
