As a former kids TV actor, Grande has been strutting her stuff on the red carpet for years. Early on in her career she favoured pretty, demure dresses, like this lacy number at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards.

But as she made her transition from acting to music, Grande began experimenting with more revealing outfits, both on and off stage.

Recreating the athletic setting of her Side To Side music video, Grande performed at the 2016 VMAs in a black-lit ensemble, managing to sing, dance and even ride a stationary bike, all while wearing insanely high stiletto heels.

At just five feet tall, high heels have become an essential part of the pop star’s style and she’s rarely seen in flats, even when she’s off duty.

While on stage, over-the-knee boots are a footwear favourite, teamed with mini skirts or cute two-piece sets.

Another Grande signature? Bunny ears, which were first seen in her video for Dangerous Woman in 2016. It’s reported that her maybe-fiance has already got a bunny ears tattoo of his own in tribute.

When it’s not covered by a bunny ears mask, Grande’s high ponytail has become such a part of her look she’s almost unrecognisable without it, as on the cover of July’s British Vogue.

One of the singer’s most iconic ponytail moments was on the cover of her 2014 album My Everything, her flowing locks cascading over a black crop top co-ord set.

And who could forget the singer’s moving performance at the Manchester One Love benefit, just two weeks after the terrorist attack at her concert, which killed 23 people.

For all the mini skirts and short-shorts, Grande sure knows how to rock a designer gown. Her most recent high fashion moment came at this year’s Met Gala in a voluminous Vera Wang number with a bow headpiece that looked like a couture version of her famous bunny ears.

As for a best ever video look? It’s got to be Problem. Shimmying in a black sequinned Sixties style shift dress and white go-go boots, flinging that famous ponytail about, Grande proves that for her, looking fabulous is never a problem.
