When it comes to award ceremonies, the MTV Video Music Awards is the most frustrating. The VMAs red carpet is a disaster to discern because of all the probably-still-teenagers who are being pimped out by record companies. Flash in the far-from-Versace-atelier pan is how you can dismiss most of their careers. Also, this is no Met Gala. Remember Justin and Britney in matching denim? VMAs. The more attention seeking the gown, the better. Which is why a best dressed list is a difficult thing to attempt. But attempt it we shall.
Nylo = what Nasty Gal could have been. We’re liking this entire sexy nineties ensemble.
Emily Ratajkowski accessorised with a puppy.
Nicki Minaj went for showstopper.
FKA Twigs channelled a sexy Victorian medium on her downtime.
Paddy Power don’t offer odds anymore on whether Taylor Swift will wear a crop top or not.
Dunno if Cara looks like she wants to be there, but we like this classy Lipsy-esque get-up.
Eva Doll’s white jumpsuit and blunt hair just works for us. She looks like she’s going to have fun in that outfit. She looks like she’s going to carefree when red wine hits the fabric.
Taylor Brought her Bad Blood crew.
Kanye West? Outfit of the night.
With those pockets, Kim got landed with looking after phones the entire night.
What Miley Wore
Miley is often described as divisive, but we fail to see what’s so damn divisive about a woman who loves her body and herself and wears what she want. Here’s a rundown of all the absolutely mental and, in a way, loveable stuff our Miley threw on for her presenting gig at the awards.
This is Versace, just in case you were ready to roll the eyes.
Can hot pink be an autumn trend instead of mustard because that latter colour is going to ruin all our palettes.
The girl loves her iconography and sequins.
Not slagging an outfit that has a beautiful message.
If Miley wants to make more money she could endorse a razor company.
Would do this walking tour.
A packet of smarties.
Tank Girl meets Barbie World.
Greer Grammer, me neither, is an actress who played it cute and safe on the costuming front but became a Pinterest pin up with this post-war darling hair.
Nylo makes a case for ignoring any entreaties for mermaid hair and reverting back to the copper strands your 14-year-old self yearned for. Also, a plus on the fuchsia lip and mis-matched gold jewellery.
Madison Beer, probably not her real name, gives the dying era of American Tailoring a final Hunger Games salute.
Vanessa Hudgens is our winter bridal inspo as of now.
“Who is Niko Sacks?” My teenage self.
