Last night’s MTV VMAs saw plenty of messy drama, which will surely inspire think pieces for days to come. This superficial post is all about the fashion of the event. We already saw the barely-there custom Versace of Miley Cyrus and the colorful statement outfits of Amber Rose and Blac Chyna. Both of those examples could easily fall into “best” or “worst,” depending upon which way the VMA fashion standards flow. Let’s call them both borderline outfits and run down some slightly more clear-cut ensembles from the evening. Fashion is always subjective, but we can have a little fun evaluating the other reigning dresses from the evening.
Best: FKA Twigs donned a very sexy Atelier Versace gown made of chiffon. The undergarments were embroidered with Swarovski crystals for some added oomph. Twigs’ dress fit the mood of the event while still allowing her to retain her own unique style.
Worst: Taylor Swift disappointed in a fairly dull Ashish ensemble. This crop-top-and-pants failed to bring any drama to the red carpet, and we all know how good Swift is at coveting drama. Her shoes are Christian Louboutin, which was another safe selection. Lorraine Schwartz earrings completed the look, which Swift could have worn on any given day.
