The MTV Video Music Awards is where Lady Gaga wore *that* meat dress. That is to say, the bar is not set particularly high for this award show. While there was a handful of standout attire, the event’s fashion fell flat. Did Katy Perry sing Swish Swish at the end of the event? Because this event is another one in the casket. Take a look.
Yara Shahid and Echosmith brought a little glamour to the event, both in satin attire that was delicately accessorized.
Lorde has such an edgy style, but is was refreshing to see a different side in her fathered lavender gown from Monique Lhuillier. However, it could have been heightened with matching bracelets or a jeweled necklace. While I find asymmetrical sleeves a bit of a nuisance, the spacing and clean cut of Katy Perry’s Stephane Rolland gown was of best dressed quality.
Casual cute ensembles that weren’t offensive from Sammi Sanchez, Chanel West Coast, Billy Ray Cyrus with daughter, Noah and Pink.
Dresses that were cute, but could have used extra length on the hem were Olivia Munn in Nicholas Jebran, Hailee Steinfeld in Atelier Versace and Sibley Scoles.
Vanessa Hudgens wore Yanina Couture. At first glance I thought this dress was strapless, but then I noticed the sheer top that still was lined through the bodice that was an exception to my contempt for sheer gowns. I might have switched the bottom 2 tiers so the sheer was under the knee to be a bit more streamlined.
Though Fifth Harmony is better dressed than previous events, they still lack in their own style.
Jasmine Sanders in chainmail Moschino that lacked finesse and Jeremy Scott of Moschino showing sometimes there needs to be secondary color to break up a monochromatic ensemble.
Yikes! Nicki Miniaj in a Djula jumpsuit that gave off a sporty glam vibe, but was weird because of the PVC material.
Caitlynn Balterria’s mermaid pants were outrageous as well as Cardi B’s Christian Siriano modern day Madonna fail.
Other funky attire from Farrah Abraham, Lizzo and Kesha in tulle Monsoori.
Alessandra Ambrosio’s Balmain embroidered and intricately patterned dress was pair with thigh high lace up boots that also were heavily patterned, which made for an underwhelming look.
Most unfortunately the nearly naked dress is still a trend celebrities want to wear and it looks as awful as ever. Its not that the patterns and details of the gowns or jumpsuits are bad, they could just be so much more elevated with lining. I don’t get why there has to be so much skin.
