VMAS Red Carpet, Part 2
Round TWO, bitches! And can we just say that the cheap Home Depot scoop light backdrop is intensely distracting?
It’s interesting, but the dishtowel hanging off one side doesn’t do much for the look. And really, Ashley? A bright yellow dress with marabou feathers and you pull out the nude pumps. Really?
Beyonce in Lanvin
Enh. It’s certainly dramatic. A bit too “Grande Dame” for our tastes – or at least for Beyonce at the VMAs. Not loving the two-tone hair, either.
Not loving the “undershirt on the red carpet” trend. You guys barely put any effort in and now you want to skip wearing shirts? We don’t think so. Also, we hate the shoes.
Those shoes are too visually heavy for this look. They look like black tissue boxes.
Demi Lovato in Mandalay
Place your bets. Who won the catfight in the ladies room? Was it Demi?
Jenni “JWoww” Farley
Or was it JWoww?
Demi, girl. Your weave is in DANGER.
Tom has been looking for that shirt ever since it disappeared from his hamper circa 1987.
As “Fuck you, I’ll wear what I want” outfits go, this is pretty fabulous. Not tasteful in any way, but definitely fabulous.
JoJo in Marco Marco
JoJo in Marco Marco looks like she’s wearing a trash bag trash bag on her hip hip.
Justin Bieber in YSL
Rachel Maddow, this is not the look for you.
Kat DeLuna is ready for her picture! Feet shoulder width apart! Cocked hip! Intense stare!
The dress is cute and we like the pop of color at the feet, but the shoes are slightly Barbie.
Katie Holmes in Azzedine Alaïa
Katie, you need to look at Kat for tips on posing fiercetastically. The cocked hip and smirk paired with the gotta-pee legs is sending mixed messages. “I’m just a girl – but I totally think I’m better than you.”
The dress is cute and we kinda dig the booties, but the twain should never have met.
Oh, you young ladies today. You just don’t know how to do this right. The dress and the sneakers were enough of a statement. She should have toned down the makeup, earrings, hair, and whatever the hell that thing is on her head. The look could have been cute and quirky, but since she looks like Lovey Howell from the neck up, the effect has been downgraded to “mental patient with a Gold Card.”
Somewhat shockingly tasteful.
Louise Roe in Tibi
Pretty. We don’t love the color of the skirt, but it’s a nice look on the whole.
Sparkle, Mika! Sparkle!
She looks like Tinkerbell out on the town, looking to get laid.
Miley Cyrus in Roberto Cavalli
It’s an interesting dress, we’ll give her that. Unfortunately, it’s also Helen Mirren’s dress. Why does this chick only have two settings: Trailer Park Party Girl and Lifetime Achievement Award?
Nothing in this picture fits correctly.
Russell, you of all people should know the importance of owning the look. Defensively crossing your arms while simultaneously answering the question of your circumcision is sending very mixed messages, Glitter Jesus.
Believe it or not, we can get behind the idea of this punk/’60s look, but the loose fit of the pants (as well as the horizontal stripe), aren’t helping. We like the top and we like the idea of pants stuffed into combat boots on the bottom, but ultimately it all looks a little awkward instead of fierce and attitudinal.
