MTV VMAs: My Best Dressed Goes To Selena Gomez

The MTV VMAs always produces a hit and miss red carpet – I either love looks or I hate them – but that’s what makes this one of the most fun music awards shows to watch. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Lady Gaga turned out – there were feathers, leopard print, lots of flesh on show, one enormous feather train, some seriously sexy looks and looks that should never have been seen.

For me the best dressed of the night was easily the gorgeous Selena Gomez wearing Atelier Versace. I reckon this look might split opinion, but I love the exposed bustier, the studded detailing, and that hip-high split is the perfect finish for such a breathtaking look. Selena looks hot and I think it was a perfect look for the occasion.

From the New York-based designer’s Resort 2014 collection, this look really stood out on the red carpet because of its incredible craftsmanship of the silver mirror beaded bateau-neck t-shirt teamed with a champagne silk faille open ballskirt over cigarette pants.

I really wasn’t expecting such a beautiful look at the VMAs, and some might say it was a little too much for an award show, but as an actress not a singer I think she totally gets away with it. For me Holland looks absolutely gorgeous and I love that she went for a bold red lip and a chic chignon – it really finishes off the look.

Miley is getting a lot of attention after her raunchy performance, I didn’t think it was any different to say Rihanna or Lady Gaga, but before she hit the stage the singer walked the red carpet in a vintage Dolce & Gabbana look. I saw a few people on twitter hating on this for looking like a scene out of the game Bejewelled – but I like how garish it is.

This look was so over-the-top that it is best viewed in motion – check out MTV’s Instavid of the dress being repositioned for photographers – it literally takes three people to move it.

The last look I loved had to be singer Ciara who rocked a Givenchy Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2010 collection. This dress, which fitted her perfectly, was super sexy with its strategically placed beaded embroidery and glamorous with its feathered hemline. Not everyone could pull this revealing gown off – but Ciara’s body is incredible and I think she looks fabulous.

Who was your best dressed at last night’s MTV VMAs? Leave me a comment below to let me know who was your favourite – and your thoughts on Selena, Holland, Miley, Rita and Ciara’s looks.

MTV VMAs: Katy Perry In Vintage Elie Saab

KatyPerryElieSaab MTV VMAs: Katy Perry In Vintage Elie Saab %tag

Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards

Wearing: A vintage Elie Saab Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2004 collection; the black gown featured sequinned floral embroidery in teal and fuchsia, and the black leather bodice was finished off with a bow accent

Verdict: I love, love, love Elie Saab and this is why, this dress is from the 2004 collection but totally fits the current romantic Gothic trend that is everywhere for autumn/winter, and Katy Perry looks incredible in it.

Last year, Katy was playful in a geisha style Atelier Versace mini dress, but this year she really did bring the glamour and I love this couture gown on her. Everything from the exquisite dress to her dark wavy locks and her flawless make-up makes this one of the best red carpets I have seen from Katy Perry.

I also love that even with her glamorous look Katy knows how to show off her quirky personality, just check out her very cool floral manicure, which featured sparkling crosses – now that is nail art!!!

What do you think of Katy’s look at last night’s MTV VMAs?

MTV VMAS: Britney Sparkles In Moschino

britneymtv MTV VMAS: Britney Sparkles In Moschino %tag

Who: Britney Spears

Where: At the 28th Annual MTV Video Music Awards at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black sequinned all-in-one jumpsuit with a skinny belt from the Moschino Cheap And Chic autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with Gina peep-toe calf boots

Verdict: This year MTV paid an amazing tribute to Britney, if you haven’t seen it check it out basically showcasing the dance moves of Brits career, and with that I was expecting an amazing outfit. Don’t get me wrong, I love this sequinned Moschino number it is cute, but it isn’t a knock out. I’m also not sure about those Gina platform boots, they are amazing, but they kind of stump her legs off a little. But hey this is Britney bitch, she looks fabulous and extremely happy, if not a little uncomfortable with all the attention.

MTV VMAs: Beyonce Stunning In Lanvin

Who: Soon-to-be-mum Beyonce

Where: At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in LA

Wearing: A striking bright orange one-shoulder silk crêpe Lanvin gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with huge tassel earrings and a gorgeous side sweeping ponytail

Verdict: Wow, one – what a way to announce that you are pregnant, two – what a dress to make that amazing announcement, and finally what a gorgeous colour. I am kind of going through an orange phase at the moment I think it is because that is the only way to make this summer bright, so as soon as saw this look I absolutely swooned.

We’ve had a lot of celebrity pregnancies this year, but I think maternity watch for Beyonce will be interesting, as will be the babies arrival – finally a celebrity offspring to knock Suri off top spot.

MTV VMAs: Katy Perry Goes Geisha Style In Atelier Versace

Who: Katy Perry

Where: At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A sky blue sequinned Atelier Versace mini-dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, embroidered with cherry blossom-shaped sequins, teamed with Barbie pink strappy Jimmy Choo heels and a matching parasol

Verdict: I am in love with this geisha style mini, I love that Katy Perry always has a bit of fun at events like this and this dress is one of my best looks of the night purely because it is fun. I think it works perfectly with her pink hair, kind of gives her an anime vibe that I love, and the cherry blossom hair accessories is stunning. I love Katy’s look from head-to-toe.

MTV VMAs: Miley Cyrus All Grown Up In Roberto Cavalli

Who: Miley Cyrus

Where: At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A long-sleeve sky blue and black print Roberto Cavalli gown with open back from his pre-fall 2011 collection, teamed with  Lorraine Schwartz jewellery

Verdict: It is easy to forget sometimes that Miley is only 18, especially when she pulls off such a glamorous look as this gorgeous Roberto Cavalli gown. For some I am sure they will say that this dress ages Miley, but I quite like the quirky mix of leopard and floral detailing in the print. From the back the look is sexy and young, from the front it is quite hippy and I think Miley rocks this look well.

However, I am not sure about the jewellery, I don’t think the choker was needed. But I do love the drop earrings and her smoky eyes.

VMA Promo: Britney Spears Tribute

I do like an awards shindig, not only for the red carpet action, but with the MTV VMAs and EMAs the collaborations, and it seems this year MTV are going all out to celebrate Britney bitch, and I don’t know about you but I am super excited.

Britney Spears is up for two nominations this year: Best Pop Video and Best Choreography for  her ‘Till the World Ends’ hit, and it seems that due to the pop princess previous 28 nominations and four wins, this year’s MTV VMAs will include an amazing tribute to her.

According to reports on MTV, director Jahai Brightly is working on a concept called ‘The Muse Factory’, where the stars of the VMAs discuss who inspired them, and this is present in Brit’s 30-second promo as she pays homage to her icons Madonna, Michael and Janet Jackson.

I love the attention to detail in the setting as there is even a Billy Jean poster, and finishes with Britney standing in front of a wall which reads, ‘A Tribute to Britney Spears’ before the date of the awards flashes up.

Other reports on the internet have suggested that other artists will perform Britney’s hits on the night, including ‘…Baby, One More Time’, ‘Toxic’ and ‘Slave 4 U’, before Britney herself takes to the stage to perform ‘Hold It Against Me’. I know for some they won’t feel that Britney is an icon or even worthy of a tribute, but I totally disagree and can’t wait to see this.

Also how hot is Britney looking, she looks incredible in cropped Levi’s shorts teamed with a vintage Helmut Lang t-shirt, and that amazing white studded Olima Atelier leather jacket over the top. Smoking!!!

The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will be live in American on August 28, I am not sure the air date for the UK, we will probably have to wait a few days.
