Wardrobe Wednesdays: Ashanti @ 2018 VMAs

This year’s MTV Video Music Awards red pink carpet was a hot mess.

From half-naked dresses to devil costumes (does Amber Rose realize it’s not even October yet?), the fashion looks I saw were a cry for help. Seriously, guys. This isn’t that hard. Wear a casual pantsuit if you can’t figure out what to hide your tatas and hooha with.

Regardless, most of the men looked SUPER (looking at you Maluma) and I’ll definitely give honorable mention to Camilla Cabello and sisters Chloe x Halle.

All of that aside, Ashanti won the night for me.

The singer showed up in a stunning silver number with not one but two slits. The gown was strapless with long sleeves and went beyond floor length.

This is the most leg I saw on the pink carpet without being basically naked, by the way.

I love how tasteful this look is. She shows off so much skin but still manages to leave enough to the imagination.

See below for two options inspired by Ashanti’s VMA dress!

Dress:

1. DHGate, $164.81

2. Fashion Genie Boutique, $77.00

Apparently, it might not be easy being green, but sure is easy wearing green.

Over the weekend at the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Zendaya graced the red carpet in a gorgeous green sheer maxi dress by Zuhair Murad.

Similar to Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery, the dress is a gorgeous shade of light green, featuring a plunging neckline and embellished with a lovely floral design.

This shade of green doesn’t seem to be very popular when it comes to sheer maxi dresses, but below are a few options inspired by Zendaya’s look.

Dress:

1. 6pm, $219.00

2.  Lulu’s, $78.00

3. Forever 21, $18.99

 

Fan Art Fridays: Kanye West for President

As many of you have heard, Kanye West announced his 2020 presidential run during Sunday’s MTV VMA award show.

I can never tell if he’s under the influence when he says crazy stuff like this.

Anyway, it looks like his fans saw this coming and created some campaign art for him. See the original on Pinterest, and enjoy Kanye’s VMA speech below.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Cara Delevingne at the 2015 MTV VMAs

It’s only right that the stars wear stars…

The MTV VMA red carpet saw so many great outfits, Cara Delevingne’s being no exception. Just look at how she’s working this beaded star pattern mini-dress!

What I like most about this dress is the fact that it looks appropriate for an upscale award show after party without trying too hard. I bet the disco ball and the lights at the VMA after party lit Cara Delevingne up in this dress like no tomorrow.

The original dress and heels are still available (who knows for how long) and are marked below with an *. An alternate dress and shoes are listed below as well:

Best Performances at the MTV #VMA2014

 

Last night, the MTV VMAs in Inglewood, California at The Forum was the place to be.

The night was filled with some serious hip shaking, booty twirling, crying, and pools of sweat from your favorite artists in pop, hip-hop, and R&B.

There was even a wardrobe malfunction. MTV needs to plan better for these last minute outfit changes between performances! Jeez!

If you missed the show, here are the top five VMA performances of the evening:

1. Opening performances (Triple Threat Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Jessie J): Oh, how the world wished that Nicki would just let the black dress fall open!

2. Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”: I love how she rethinks jumping off the platform. Precious.

3. 5SOS, “Amnesia”: Not a fan of them or anything, but the sound really great live.

4. Maroon 5, “Maps”: Wondering where they are? Outdoor bandshell, baby!

Full performance here.

5. Beyonce Medley (Video Vanguard Performance): As predicted, it was flawless.

Miley Cyrus Announces MTV Documentary ‘Miley: The Movement’

It doesn’t look like Miley Cyrus’ name is going to come off of our tongues any time soon.

miley documentary

Between her crazy music video for “We Can’t Stop,” her VMA performance, and the new “Wrecking Ball” video that people are beginning to consider a mild porno, this girl is getting the attention of literally anyone who’s got enough time on their hands to watch/listen to her insanity.

I will admit that the “Wrecking Ball” music video was a very well thought out artistic interpretation of vulnerability. The song is quite amazing itself as well.

With the release of her new album Bangerz, coming out on October 8th, I honestly cannot wait to hear the criticism.

Because, I mean, look what just two songs has gotten her…

You have to understand that since she took a break from music for a bit, she has to make a big comeback so that she’ll still appear relevant.

“Big comeback” is an understatement at this point though, Miley.

A few days before Bangerz is released, MTV will air a documentary titled “Miley: The Movement” at 10pm ET/PT.

miley the movement

Well, now we all know what most of us will be tuning into on the evening of Wednesday, October 2nd!

“There’s going to be a lot of ups and downs, and it’s going to be completely insane. You’ve gotta be a part of the movement with me,” Miley says in the promo for the documentary.

Maybe we’ll finally find out where all the madness that is now Miley Cyrus is coming from.

I wonder if we’ll see any of Liam in the documentary…

Watch the promo here.

2013 VMAs Pit Fans Experience

IMAG2400

MTV VMAs Pit Priority Wristband

I am forever in debt to 1iota.com and MTV.

I’m still dreaming guys. I really am. If I could give you a minute by minute play by play I would, but I’m still dreaming.

I’m in limbo…

Ok, in all seriousness, here is what I wore. There are no pictures of my Gatsby style attire on my body because I was rushing to get out of the house. So here is the look in layout form.

IMAG2401-1

That’s right. I wore my Fergie heels. So when DJ Cassidy played “The Time” by Black Eyed Peas, I couldn’t help but sing “I got freaky, freaky, baby…”

Yes. I was THAT girl in the pits. I knew the words to almost every song. I had so much room to dance!

However, I only think I had that much room because my other pit party members were afraid of me…

Sorry?

So I rush to the BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), and there are a billion and one lines to get in for pit priority.

Lovely, we’re all being punked.

No, no, rest assured, a 1iota t-shirt wearing man told us all: “THIS IS NOT THE VMAS.”

I show them my ID and my priority ticket. They said my name wrong a few times, but that’s cool. I’m not Fergie Duhamel or anything so my reps won’t be on your case.

Blue priority wrist band is now on. Things are getting real.

This is the ceiling at BAM guys. Look at it.

IMAG2391

So now 1iota is trying to get us over to Barclay’s safely.

But wait. This is the VMAS guys. So of course there’s a barricade with thousands of screaming fans at Fulton!

IMAG2392Mind you, I’m running across streets and trying not to die. IN HEELS.

Alright, I’m convinced. Fast forward through security and now, I get choked up and almost start to cry as I walk past the MTV equipment, and the lights, and, OMJ guys I don’t even know guys. It was so freaking amazing.

Now I’m standing in heels trying to help 1iota fix cameras and stuff. We were basically doing the electric slide for about 30 minutes.

Yeah. A whole bunch of young adults dancing the electric slide on a floor they can’t even believe they’re standing on. Sure.

Oh, and to the girl with the electronic cigarette in the pits during all this shenanigans:

Thank you for almost getting us all kicked out.

So the rest you all saw on television. Of course, I saw some completely different things but here are a few highlights.

Highlights: (IN SOMEWHAT PARTICULAR ORDER)

1. Lady Gaga’s performance: We all knew it would be awesome. Trust me, it was.  Cue the “Applause.”

2. Bubble Butt was on stage with Miley Cyrus. What is life.

3. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” performance. More on that later.

4. Kanye West. Those shadows? THE FANS IN THE PIT!!

5. Bruno Mars. Three gunshots and fire! Lovely! Trying to give me a heart-attack?!!

6. I had three Brits in my midst. Ellie Goulding sitting on Rita Ora’s lap, and Mister Ed Sheeran to their left. I’m still in limbo.

7. KATY PERRY. BROOKLYN BRIDGE. PRISM TRUCK. I think I saw her in my left eye wearing a lace white dress? Again, still fuzzy. “Roar.”

8. Justin Timberlake’s performance. 15 minutes. I danced like I’ve never danced before.

9. NSYNC REUNION.

10. Justin Timberlake sang to me the life of every young girl’s sloppy romance, and then has the nerve to say he doesn’t deserve Video Vanguard?!

SHUT. UP!!

My Favorite Performance:

“Blurred Lines”: Robin Thicke

He pulled blue gum out of that dancer’s mouth and ate it. SEXY.

Well played Mr. Business Man. Well played.

 

Here are some of the pics I took after the show. And a short video.

THE WHISPER BOX LOVES 1iota!!
