After assessing the red carpet looks from last night’s Video Music Awards , we have to admit that we think the celebs’ styles came up short.  Sequins, leather, studs, and  sheer everything… it has all been over done. We get it… its the Video Music Awards and we want our rockstars to have a little bit of an edge!  But some of the outfits from the red carpet were too over the top for our taste.  Don’t get us wrong though, there were a few celebrities who got the superstar style just right.  Check out our wrap up of all the best and worst looks from the award show.



Last night Miley Cyrus rocked out a pair of leather high-waist pants with a matching bandeau top by Alexandre Vauthier. This look is on trend with matching crop top sets that have been in style this summer. We can’t say this is our favorite look for Miley, but she definitely looked chic and subdued ( for Miley anyway). We think this was a good pick for her, especially after last year’s Miley mayhem. ( do twerking and Robin Thicke ring a bell?)


Miley’s outfit was all leather done right, but we think Ariana Grande‘s outfit went wrong… This Moschino outfit is trying too hard to be sexy and grown up. Ariana has a fun young spirit about her and this all leather get-up is too severe. She should be wearing something more youthful and exuberant.


Nikki Minaj

Metallics were everywhere at the VMAs Sunday night.  Some stars wore the shining style in a sexy sophisticated way and others wore it ALL wrong. Nicki Minaj was one style star who hit the metallic nail on the head.  This snake print metallic mini from Saint Laurent is gorgeous on Minaj. We are loving her pared down style as of late… now if only she would smile!


Iggy Azalea also worked the silver metallic trend right at the show. This curve hugging gown from Atelier Versace was simply futuristic and fresh.


Amber Rose also stepped out in a metallic number but she didn’t get it quite right. In fact, we aren’t sure if this even qualifies as an outfit. It appears as though Amber Rose just threw on a chain bra and some underwear… but we wouldn’t expect any thing less (or should we say MORE) from her. We will say it takes a confident woman to sport this look!


Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift and Amber Rose might share the same stylist because they both forgot to put on pants! We love Taylor’s valiant effort to try something out of her realm and to be a little sexier; however this attempt was a flop.  Ms. Swift has certainly got the legs for this look but the bottom is ill fitting. If the shorts were a little longer or if it was a different print this outfit may have had a fighting chance.  We usually love Taylor’s style but this one was just a bust.

Nick Jonas was one the best dressed guys at the VMAs.  He is no longer the littlest Jo Bro but an edgy rocker in this Vivienne Westwood plaid blazer and leather pants.




We can’t say that Katy Perry was our best dressed at the awards, but we can say she has the outfit with the best sense of humor. We loved the homage to Britney and Justin’s denim ensembles circa 2001.
