VMAS Red Carpet, Part 2

Posted on August 29, 2011

Round TWO, bitches! And can we just say that the cheap Home Depot scoop light backdrop is intensely distracting?

Ashley Rickards

It’s interesting, but the dishtowel hanging off one side doesn’t do much for the look. And really, Ashley? A bright yellow dress with marabou feathers and you pull out the nude pumps. Really?

Beyonce in Lanvin

Enh. It’s certainly dramatic. A bit too “Grande Dame” for our tastes – or at least for Beyonce at the VMAs. Not loving the two-tone hair, either.

 

Chord Overstreet

Not loving the “undershirt on the red carpet” trend. You guys barely put any effort in and now you want to skip wearing shirts? We don’t think so. Also, we hate the shoes.

 

Crystal Reed

Those shoes are too visually heavy for this look. They look like black tissue boxes.

Demi Lovato in Mandalay

Place your bets. Who won the catfight in the ladies room? Was it Demi?

Jenni “JWoww” Farley

Or was it JWoww?

Demi, girl. Your weave is in DANGER.

 

Drake Bell

Tom has been looking for that shirt ever since it disappeared from his hamper circa 1987.

Jessie

As “Fuck you, I’ll wear what I want” outfits go, this is pretty fabulous. Not tasteful in any way, but definitely fabulous.

JoJo in Marco Marco

JoJo in Marco Marco looks like she’s wearing a trash bag trash bag on her hip hip.

Justin Bieber in YSL

Rachel Maddow, this is not the look for you.

Kat DeLuna

Kat DeLuna is ready for her picture! Feet shoulder width apart! Cocked hip! Intense stare!

The dress is cute and we like the pop of color at the feet, but the shoes are slightly Barbie.

Katie Holmes in Azzedine Alaïa

Katie, you need to look at Kat for tips on posing fiercetastically. The cocked hip and smirk paired with the gotta-pee legs is sending mixed messages. “I’m just a girl – but I totally think I’m better than you.”

The dress is cute and we kinda dig the booties, but the twain should never have met.

Kreayshawn

Oh, you young ladies today. You just don’t know how to do this right. The dress and the sneakers were enough of a statement. She should have toned down the makeup, earrings, hair, and whatever the hell that thing is on her head. The look could have been cute and quirky, but since she looks like Lovey Howell from the neck up, the effect has been downgraded to “mental patient with a Gold Card.”

Lil Mama

Somewhat shockingly tasteful.

Louise Roe in Tibi

Pretty. We don’t love the color of the skirt, but it’s a nice look on the whole.

Mika Newton

Sparkle, Mika! Sparkle!

She looks like Tinkerbell out on the town, looking to get laid.

Miley Cyrus in Roberto Cavalli

It’s an interesting dress, we’ll give her that. Unfortunately, it’s also Helen Mirren’s dress. Why does this chick only have two settings: Trailer Park Party Girl and Lifetime Achievement Award?

Pete Wentz

Nothing in this picture fits correctly.

Russell Brand

Russell, you of all people should know the importance of owning the look. Defensively crossing your arms while simultaneously answering the question of your circumcision is sending very mixed messages, Glitter Jesus.

Skylar Grey

Believe it or not, we can get behind the idea of this punk/’60s look, but the loose fit of the pants (as well as the horizontal stripe), aren’t helping. We like the top and we like the idea of pants stuffed into combat boots on the bottom, but ultimately it all looks a little awkward instead of fierce and attitudinal.

    I feel like the VMAs are like the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.  Looks like a  lot struggle with what to wear. It isn’t a clear cut thing like the Oscars. 
     And then there is Lil Mama… THOSE shoes? With THAT dress? #StyledByHelenKeller

    Godalmighty-it’s like this fall’s Hillbilly Chic collection……um, minus the chic. I mean, half of them look like they got dressed in the dark, and the other half look like they were attacked by a grizzly bear, who then dragged them through the dirt on the way to the red carpet. Even Beyonce, who can usually make anything look good, appears as if she ran to Mood, bought a bolt of red fabric and spun while Jay-z unrolled. Girl, I didn’t need to cover up that much when I was 9 months pregnant-and my baby was 10 lbs! Hiddy…..all of it

    So much awful! You’d think these celebrities (not that I know who most of them are) would have enough money to buy either 1) mirrors or 2) glasses with corrective lenses.  Jesus. And as noted by another posted in the VMA pt 1, it’s nice to see a mix of body shapes and sizes on the red carpet, but it is NOT nice to see how every single one of them dressed the same: all the girls are dressed as if they have Barbie’s proportions, whether they do or not.
    And Miley Cyrus. christ on a cupcake. Trailer Park Party or Lifetime Achievement, indeed.

    Just reread my comment, “mayhap”? Obviously, I’ve been reading too much historical romance.

    I want to vent about shoe design. I’ve never seen so many ugly, clunky, and heavy shoe wear as I have in the last two years. Feet shouldn’t look like they’re having a bout of club foot. Aren’t feet supposed to look delicate and elongate the legs? The shoe trend as of late promotes stumpy legs and Frankenstein feet. I’m over it.  Also, get off my lawn with them. You’re ruining the grass.

    Your characterization of Ms. Cyrus was my laugh of the day. So far.

    As has been mentioned, Beyonce is, I think, doing that Yay! We’re pregnant! thing some gals do where as soon as they show at all, they start dressing like they’re in the 9th month carrying twins. Not impressive but hey, I don’t begrudge her excitement about the event. Someone who cares about her needs to get it in writing NOW that when she’s been an actual parent – of one child – for about 12 minutes – she is contractually prohibited from giving interviews in which she tells everybody all her theories about child rearing and what they should all be doing. Would save so much embarrassment later.

    Lovato beats out JWoww in the cat fight because Lovato’s shoes are great and JWoww’s are tacky. And I want to believe there is some justice in the universe. (There *were* a lot of ugly/inappropriate shoes out there, no?)

    I’d say Jessie, Kat DeLuna & Russel Brand caught the spirit of what I expect from folks under 50 at the VMAs.

    Miley Cyrus – Pretty just better suited for someone 3x’s her age.

    Seriously, who keeps styling Miley up like Mrs Roper?  I think it’s that certain mentality that brand/price/label = quality. It’s like her stylist is saying “I don’t care that it’s not your shape, color, or even remotely age approipriate.  It’s Cavalli and YOU’LL WEAR IT AND LIKE IT.”  It’s the couture equivalent of the junior cheer captain and her D&B purse.

    TLo, I’m not sure how you do it. Funny, spot-on critique of truly horrible looks! I hope you’ve insured your eyes, because this level of fug seems dangerous.

    Did Louise Roe have her feet reattached after a horrible accident?  What is up with that?

    Isn’t Katie Holmes’ dress the same one that was posted her for In or Out for Lucy Liu a few weeks ago?

    Um, who are all these people? (Yeah, my Old Man Pants just arrived)

    Although I have no idea who she is Louise Roe is the only one that really looks presentable.  I do wish that Bieber dude would join a monastery in Tibet so he wouldn’t be seen anymore.

    “Glitter Jesus” is the greatest name ever. 

    And the resemblance of Beibs to Rachel Maddow is beginning to get uncanny. As for everyone else, who the heck are they??

    “Rachel Maddow, this is not the look for you.: HAHAHAHH!
    This is how Jean Lynch should dress – but with better shoes.
    OMG I laughed for reals out loud on that one.

    I’m crying at Glitter Jesus! Priceless. I have never seen so many bad choices in clothing in my life with the exception of Kat & Katie who did indeed wear the wrong shoes.

    The sad, sad thing is that someone was PAID to design this crap, someone was PAID to make this crap, and someone was PAID to dress these folks in this crap.  And some of these celebs were PAID to LOOK like crap.

    This may be the best recap yet.  I wish we could have the VMA’s every day.

    I bet the designers love the VMAs. It’s their one opportunity all year to get rid of all of their crazy ish.

    Justin Bieber looks like a 4-year-old with an accidental load in his pants.
    Skylar Grey looks cool. Appropriate for this event.
    Are Lil Mama’s shoes United Nude? Looks like a Mobius heel.

    I love this so much I want to take it out behind the middle school and make it pregnant.

    I think Demi won the fight. She looks really smug. J-Wow looks like she’s trying to hide a deep unhappiness. Of course, that’s probably fairly default for all cast members of the Jersey Shore. 

    Is Jessie’s leg really broken? If it is, then good for her for being fierce. If it’s not, then WTF?

      as, of course, i didnt know who she was, i looked her up. it’s not quite a broken leg, it’s messed up tendons or something, but, yeah, it more or less is so yeah, good for her–except i wouldve created a better pattern. i cant tell if it’s a peacock or a tree of life or what. but, then again, thats just me.

    I think Miley knows she looks like total shit-the look on her face is all “meh”…

    1)Video Music Awards, can they change it to Youtube it we re-hash it Awards. 2) Yawn  3) Oh, I see Beyonce is being the big fish in the little pond, whale there ya go! 4) Who is dressing these people? 5) Who is buying this crap so they can be dressed like this? 6) PW could have saved the show had he actually cared to use his money to get the ‘ish custom fit 7) It’s looks like Russell Brand is over it all too, good for Russell.

    Apparently Louise Roe didn’t get the “Dress like a Ho” memo! Poor dear Miley, she looks like she is playing dress up in mommy’s clothes.

  • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

    i dont know who most of these people are, of course, but i do know there are two sets of fabulous footwear: those belonging to whoever lil mama is & those belonging to whoever the last person is, the person in prisoner pants. i would really like to know who made them {shoes/boots not pants}.

    otoh, dont think about bieber much, wouldntve were i still a fourteen year old girl, never ever wouldve been able to stand him, still i do feel a bit sorry for him here as, apparently & for whatever reason, several inches have been cut out of both of his legs & that had to have hurt.

    edited to add:
    i mean, here he pretty much looks like a kangaroo. in a different color, true, & he hasnt got a pouch or a tail, but if you keep all that in mind while giving him some leeway on the length of his snout then: yes, kangaroo. if you look hard enough you’ll see it.

    Chord Overstreet has done too much work on his abdominals and now he can’t stand up straight.  Look around your gym, you’ll see these guys EVERYWHERE.  The abdominal muscles become so developed and they neglect to work out enough on the back so they end up standing hunched over instead of straight up and down.  Bad posture ruins ANY look no matter how perfect it may be.

    Okay, your Rachel Maddow comment made me choke on my apple slice.  Then I spit out water at “Sparkle, Mika! Sparkle!”  When will I learn?

    is there anyone with taste anymore?   Skylar Gray’s outfit is cool but the rest scare me.

    The Fug Girls have a photo of Ashley Rickards wearing the same dress with black pumps. It looks much better! Beats me WHY she wore the same dress with 2 pairs of shoes though.

  • Anonymous

    Sorry, guys, but the fuggirls definitely have it right on the Beyonce front. And your opinionating on maternity wear is starting to get a bit….boring. 

    On the other hand, your Justin Bieber critique totally made my morning.
