Fashion is music to our soul! So, when the worlds of music and fashion collide, we definitely enter into a state of divine nirvana! Sunday night’s 2016 MTV Video Music Awards are always a fun spectacle filled with the who’s who trying to see who can outdo who. Do you follow?
Beyonce’s 16 minute performance of her Lemonade album brought the house down…and the Fendi fox cape was amazing!
Britney Spears performs onstage during the 2016 VMAs. The pressure was on because she took the stage after Beyonce.
Rihanna performed four different times… that’s why she’s a Vanguard
Change it up and deliver the good. Another performance by Riri
Beautifully done. Rihanna slowed it down with another performance in a haute couture gown by Alexandre Vauthier
Rihanna performs again
Keeping in mind that the VMA celebrates the rock star, renegade, showgirl /guy persona, you can’t judge the red carpet with the same scrutiny, and critical fashion lens, that you would use in judging the Oscars. Open your mind and expand your horizons, these are the looks we loved from the night’s festivities.
Rita Ora in Marc Jacobs under normal circumstance might have gotten a comment about coming out of a clown car, but for the VMAs she was a hit
Definitely the night’s all-around winner; Beyonce in a striking gold lace jumpsuit complete with cape for the superwoman she is
Nicki Minaj in Bao Tranchi was giving vibes of a different “ménage” in this ultra sexy peek-a-boo dress
Hailey Baldwin in Georges Chakra was every rock star’s dream! We loved this hard-edged lace jumpsuit
Ashley Graham in Naeem Khan exuded sheer confidence and sex appeal
Justine Skye in Missoni was colorful, quirky and cute
Hailee Steinfeld in Balmain made some want to taste the rainbow…she was confectionery perfection
Naomi Campbell in Brandon Maxwell gets better and better with age
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in Yeezy. We’re not surprised at another sexy look from Kim, but rather that this look managed to be simple yet stunning from head to toe
Opening her epic 16 minute performance Beyonce wore a Ralph & Russo white silk organza cape
Beyonce accepts her award for Video of the Year for “Formation” in a white lace wedding dress by Spanish designer Yolan Cris Couture Calamo. Oh, did we mention that she slayed the competition in more ways than one. Six different outfit changes. Now that’s commitment!
Britney Spears looked svelte and lucid in her black Julien MacDonald dress
Surprising, but true, we were not fans of Beyonce’s red carpet look. The cool mint green Francesco Scognamiglio gown made me think of Queen Elizabeth; or the Red Queen in “Alice Through the Looking Glass” to be exact! We know, we know; everyone loved it…cue the beehive!
Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)
Beyoncé in Francesco Scognamiglio was showgirl meets no girl!
Even with the best accessory one could have, little Blue Ivy in an $11,000 dress,the look didn’t do it for us
Why ruin the mood? Beyoncé was not alone…there were others on the white carpet that didn’t quite hit the right note.
Ariana Grande rolled up in in an Alexander Wang top and black pants. It’s time to grow up and pull out the scrunchy little girl. Your look is growing really old really quick
Alicia Keys….we get the point, you are the queen of “au naturale” and makeup is optional, but we ask; what’s the point in dawning an extravagant ball gown and not committing to the complete look?
Calling Joan Smalls; the 80s called and they want back their outfit. This is definitely not model behavior
Winnie Harlow in Nicolas Jebran – Too much dress for such a little frame. We wish she would have worn a more youthful and colorful dress to accent her natural beauty
And, with a name like Baddie Winkle, what do you really expect? Rock on with your bad self grandma!
