The MTV VMAs took place in Brooklyn last night and if you watched, you may have been too distracted by how MTV managed to strip Brooklyn of its last little bit of urbanity to notice the styles that graced the red carpet. Here is some of what you may have missed…
Interesting choice of eyewear for someone who’s often compared to an insect. But we love Wiz though!
Cunty… but not in a good way.
Well this is one way to make your ex jealous, not to mention showing up matching your date (see above photo).
Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis
The fit of Mackelmore’s suit is sublime, but one wonders if he feels like he has to wear something that looks like it came from the thrift shop just for thrift cred.
Too easy. NEXT!
Way too much going on. The feathers, the poor fit, the random “thing” around the waist. Why? Aside from looking like Beyonce and Rihanna’s love child, Rita didn’t give us much of anything good in this dress.
When you’ve given as much red carpet greatness as Rih, you deserve to chill.
Kim Kardashian looked stunning in a… *gets tapped on shoulder and told to take a closer look*… Oops.
Cousin Miley really showed out last night and not the way we would’ve hoped. We’ve seen some strong fashion moments from Miley in recent years, but this night, she opted for overdone, contrived ratchet nonsense. Reel it in, Miley. Reel it in.
We want so badly for Kim to win; to be a role model and a mentor to young up-and-coming rapstresses. All of this just distracts.
We always show up for Madame Gaga, but this lacefront wig was somewhat of a puzzlement. She made up for it with her performance and surely earned a place in the Guinness Book for most wig and wardrobe changes in a minute.
See what happens when you have the VMAs in Brooklyn?
Wasn’t sure how to feel about this look, but remembered that this is Smurfette… Katy can pull off this kind of whimsy.
Justin didn’t try very hard this year. He’s going into his “it’s all about the art for me now” phase. Everything about this look is lacking.
Sometimes it takes a model to show up and be great. Thank you, Joan. Thank you.
Jhud is still enjoying her slimmy trimmy frame, giving an Oscar winner’s version of edgy with this leather skirt and herring bone combo.
Drake is like the Meryl Streep of music award shows. You let him get a pass on looking a mess because he’s actually talented.
Danity Kane announced that they were back in the game on the VMA red carpet. The bobs were a bit stiff, but they put out a good effort overall.
This is head-to-toe fabulousness right here. Hands down, the best-dressed men of the night.
Ciara said, “So what if I had to sell my album on Groupon. I’m still a pretty girl with a body built for couture.” *sticks out tongue*
