VMA Fashion – Hot or Not

I’m sure many of you tuned in last night to watch the VMA’s (MTV’s Video Music Awards). This huge activity never goes on without a scandal. This year, the outfits were enough scandal. I’m going to be showing you a few of my favorites and not-so-favorites of the night.

I’m going to have to start with Miley Cyrus:

I want to start off by mentioning Miley Cyrus’ makeup artist has been KILLING IT lately. I love the red lip and the Marilyn Monroe eye with her very blonde locks. It just works. Now, having said that, oh Miley. She started the night off donning a vintage Dolce and Gabbana piece, which surprisingly worked. No thanks to her hair stylist. Those two buns must die. And I mean NOW. The vintage piece worked because it was funky and very 90’s. Also, she has the rockin’ bod to work it.

Her second outfit SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. I don’t know where it came from, who told her it looked okay, and who she’s paying to style her. It was not okay and never would be. A fuzzy gray one piece Chucky Cheese leotard? Yes, Miley, your body is insane. Please never ever wear such horrific things ever again. To boot, she combined it with a pair of creepers that made her look like she had clown shoes on. While on stage it all looked so wrong. The piece she had under, which was like nothing, was showing the whole time. It was just wrong all over the place.

Next we move on to Selena Gomez:

Selena, HOT DAYUM, how you’ve grown. She donned a Versace gown and a pair of lucite heels. The gown is terribly interesting. It covers one side of her body completely and the other opens all the way to the slit on her leg. On the open side she reveals a see-through corset. Honestly, yes, it’s a bit mature for her, but she looked so amazing that it just didn’t matter. I loved the combination of lucite heels and the beading on the dress is perfection. You go Glenn Coco!

Ms. Lady Gaga:

We all know that Lady Gaga is a bit out there. She’s appeared on the red carpet wearing nothing but meat. This time she was a bit more decent. A BIT. She wore a Prabal Gurung costume/gown. The problem I have with this is the all-black-ness of it. The material isn’t my favorite, either. The wig was more than obvious as well. It just seemed like a bad Halloween costume to me. Frankly, surprising to me, since I’m a huge Prabal Gurung fan.

Later she changed into, well, practically nothing. She channelled the Little Mermaid in her seashell bra and panties. In reality, nothing to say about this. It’s not an outfit, it’s practically an Adam and Eve sort of look. She changed her wig to another crazy blonde one. It just wasn’t a good night for Lady Gaga. Although, we must admit the girl has a nice behind.

Taylor Swift:

I just want to ask, when did Taylor get a bangin’ body? I do not recall this. She wore a Herve Leger gown that made her body look like Heaven. The gown was couture as it gets, but the hair… I cannot. I can’t act like that hair doesn’t bother the hell out of me. I understand she was aiming for an old Hollywood 20’s sort of look, and she almost nailed it, but the hair is out of control. Maybe had it been pinned back it would have looked better. The makeup and dress were an A+, so A for effort, Taylor.

Katy Perry:

I understand Katy Perry has a new single out and it’s called “Roar”, which should make this outfit choice excusable… but, no. She wore an embellished Ungaro dress, which frankly, doesn’t do it for me. Katy Perry knows what her best assets are and she is not making the best of them here. She covered up with the turtle neck and then the length was awkward for her size. It just doesn’t show off her body as it should. She has an amazing body and should look to wear dresses that show it off.

Shailene Woodley

Shailene wore Emilio Pucci Resort Collection and I have to say, I loved it. She’s young and fresh, and keepin’ it “casual” at the VMA’s and I am all for it. The fringe, color, and glitter in the skirt is absolutely stunning. Keeping ger look rather simple with her hair in a ponytail and natural makeup. I believe this was a great choice for her and for her body. You have a sneak peek of her rock hard abs as well as her long stems.

 

There were many more terrifying and gorgeous outfit choices, but I can’t be here all day. Although I have to put it out there that Miley Cyrus was scary onstage and Justin Timberlake was a dream. I fangirled when N*Sync came onstage. Uh-mazing.

Hope you guys enjoyed my review on the outfits worn to the VMA’s.

NYC Purchases (..Some)

Hey guys!

I’m gonna post a few pics of some of the stuff I bought while I was in New York. Some of the things I purchased were nowhere to be found online, so, bare with me.

I bought these gold Sperry’s, which I absolutely love. I wasn’t really into these type of shoes, but I gotta say, they look real nice. They kinda work with everything, which is handy. Also, I was looking to purchase things I could use to college so they’re perfect!

This lovely dress from Brandy Melville. I LOVE this dress. It’s so airy and flirty. It’s perfect for college and/or day dates. It’s just fun and easy to wear.

This other dress from Brandy Melville as well. This one I love because it’s more form fitting, which makes my body look sa-weet. Seriously. It’s also perfect for going to college.

This Zara skirt, which is a necessary purchase for me. If you know me, you know I’ve become obsessed with skirts. This is no exception. It’s perfect because it’s something I could wear with anything. It’s really a staple in my closet. The flare in it just makes it that much more amazing.

These Toms shoes, which were on sale at Urban Outfitters. I’d been lusting over a pair of these babies for a long time. They’re so usable and comfortable. I had to buy them when I saw the sale. I’ve worn them non-stop.

This Zara blouse as well had been on my wishlist for quite some time now. It’s just one of those blouses that are perfect for any occasion. I HAD to have it. So, I got it!

Last, but not least, these J Brand jeans. Everyone who saw me holding them in the store was going nuts asking me where I had found them, but they were MINE. They are very comfortable and they stretch, which I love. I absolutely love the small cut in the knee, it’s perfect.

Anyway, there are more things, BUT I couldn’t find pictures anywhere on the interwebs. Eventually you guys will see them in my outfit posts! Take care my dearies!

NYC

Hey guys!

I know it has seemed like I have abandoned you, but in all honesty, I was going through some personal stuff AND I went on that vacation to New York. So, yeah, I’m back and ready to get back to business.

I didn’t really take many photos in New York, but I’ll be putting up a post in these next few days with my New York purchases. I didn’t really purchase much, but the something is something!

Anywho, take care my lovelies!
