As per usual, VMA fashion this year was pretty much a snoozefest. Even Ke$ha, who we can usually depend on to walk the red carpet in a ripped up trashbag and Valtrex bottle clutch was booooring. And what was with Nicki Minaj trying to channel Lady Gaga with her big, yellow/blonde hair? Or Chris Brown, who looked more like a reverend who steals from the collection plate than an R&B star?
But I digress- the biggest fashion faux pas of the evening had to be the abundance of starlets looking more like they were headed to The Oscars than the VMAs. Yes, Taylor Swift looked beautiful and Alicia Keys was stunning as always – but it’s the VMAs for crying out loud. The one place people go to be crazy and express themselves through fashion, not look like they’re going to the prom.
In any case, there were a few who stood out as the evening’s best dressed – here are my picks:
Compared to the usual, colorful explosion of candy and glitter we’re used to, Katy Perry’s look was rather boring; but she just looked so pretty! The long, wavy black locks showed how elegant she can look and her flowing, sheer Ellie Saab was the right mix of chic and fun for an event like the VMAs. Other than the fact the sheerness of her dress threatened to expose her lady regions in an Adrienne Bailon-esque wardrobe malfunction of course. Impending wardrobe malfunctions aside though, Katy was a stunner tonight.
It was really hard for me to put her on this list seeing as how she drives me nuts and I can’t stand Jersey Shore, but I really like this ensemble. From the mixed metallic mini-dress to the coordinating jewelry and glittering gold shoes, her look was cute, fun and definitely more sleek than we’re used to seeing from her. Even her face looked prettier, although I suspect that may be the work of an expert plastic surgeon rather than an expert make-up artist.
While I agree her hairdo was exactly like P!nk’s, this edgy look was a huge departure from Miley’s Hannah Montana days, which I really like. She’s young and still finding herself style-wise so I applaud her taking a risk with this dark look. I especially like how she used her accessories to add just a touch of glamor and sparkle to this otherwise daring outfit.
I could care less about what he was wearing, I’m just excited he was there. Seriously, if you don’t know who he is or why he’s so awesome, check out the video below and tell me your life hasn’t changed for the better after having seen that. Ya, exactly.
Now that I’ve covered everything from venereal diseases to Korean pop stars, who are some of your VMA favorites?
