The last time that I watched the VMAs, Britney and Justin were still the Hollywood It Couple. So clearly, I’m a bit behind on the times. Either way, this year’s white carpet did provide a bit of sartorial inspiration once you sifted through all the fame whore detritus.
Speaking of which…
A dress made out of meat? Seriously?
I’ve gotten to the point where I no longer find Lady Gaga to be an edgy, fashion boundary pusher. I just find her antics to be tired and in this case, unsanitary. I’m not interested in what she’s wearing or why she’s wearing it, so much as I am in knowing when her 15 minutes will be up.
Though I will give her brownie points for ticking off the hypocrites at PETA (not that that’s difficult to do). Thus, a public service announcement: Please do not give money to PETA. PETA kills animals. If you want to give to a charity that actually helps animals, ASPCA is the non-profit for you.
Now onto the looks that I actually liked…
I love the black and white combination on this dress, it’s so simple but chic at the same time. I also love the draped skirt. And while her hair looks fabulous, I might have gone a little lighter on the spray tan because she’s one spritx away from Dina Lohan territory.
Miranda Cosgrove looks stylish and age appropriate in blue and black sequins. What a fab combo! See you can wear blue and black together.
Ciara looked hott in feathers and lace. Notice the ombre on the skirt? I’m telling you, it’s coming back!
I cannot believe that I am about to speak glowingly about a member of the Pratt family on this site, but I am. I really like the boho chic/70s glam maxi dress she’s wearing. And while I understand she was going for the Venus de Milo meets Cali Girl look, there’s never a good reason to wear fake hair.
