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!
1. DHGate, $164.81
2. Fashion Genie Boutique, $77.00
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.
