As I mentioned on the blog's Facebook page, I'm never impressed with the VMAs red carpet. Yeah, it's a lighthearted affair so no need for the frou frou dresses and three-piece suits but still, y'know, step it up a bit. This year's showing pretty much left me underwhelmed...
...Much like the main show. Blah. I'm over here racking my brain trying to remember a performance, any performance, that stood out. Besides, Beyonce...I guess. The 'I guess' part is mainly because I wished she played out the songs a bit longer especially the ones I'm fond of like "Mine", "Drunk in Love", "XO", and "Partition". But time was limited and, I mean, she did perform all of the tracks from her latest album, Beyonce. So, I'll let her be. Bey won the special award of the night - Vanguard Award. At the end of her performance, Jay-Z and Blue came on stage to present her the award. A cute moment.
Let's begin the red carpet commentary, shall we. But, of course.
|Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith|
Both dressed differently but look appropriate for this type of awards show.
They cleaned up nicely.
|Kesha Johnson in Johanna Johnson|
Kesha looks really pretty. Weirdly enough, the hair colors works nicely with the dress.
|Miley Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier|
Diggin' this leather look. Not diggin' the sandals.
|Gwen Stefani in L.A.M.B.|
Those heels are killer.
The fit of the jumpsuit is working on her but I just can't get behind the design of the jumpsuit.
I don't know if it's the color combo (not really a fan of hot pink + black).
|Solange Knowles in H&M|
Solange went the hi-lo route (cause you know those heels cost a lot).
The jacket looks oversized when really it's not. She's rockin' high-water pants.
Just a weird looking suit.
|Taylor Swift in Mary Katrantzou|
The fuck is this shit?
Like, what is this?
Shaking. My. Head.

And that's all she wrote. Did you watch the show or catch the red carpet special? Thoughts?
