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

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Stella Maxwell @ VMAs 2016

Stella Maxwell VMAs 2016

When the VMAs have come and gone, you know summer is pretty much over.

I really wanted to attend this year’s VMAs, as they were in NYC at Madison Square Garden this time around, but I originally didn’t get tickets in the 1iota lottery. Regardless, I was super tired after getting home at 12:30am from the VMA Pre-Party at Terminal 5 on Saturday. Cue quick collage of performers Bebe Rexha, Phantogram, and Tove Lo:

Clockwise: Bebe Rexha, Phantogram, and Tove Lo

But anyway, for this week’s Wardrobe Wednesdays, we’re saying goodbye to the summer with splash of color from Stella Maxwell’s 2-piece tribal print set. I don’t know why the critics are listing her as one of the worst dressed. I just love the flared pant leg!

Below you’ll find two similar sets to help you end the summer with a bang.

Set:

1. Romwe, $15.99

2. URBANOG, $27.60
