2013 MTV VMAs Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on August 27, 2013

Let’s DO this, bitches! Here’s to all the D-Listers and boring A-to-C-listers who didn’t rate much of our time or loving attention! You might want to duck. There’s some serious drive-by bitchery about to be committed.

Hit it, attention whores!

 

2 Chainz

Well. It’s a look. You can’t fault him for lack of effort. Personally, we would have counseled him to observe Coco Chanel’s famous dictum about taking one item off before leaving the house. We’re sure he would have agreed with us on this once it was pointed out to him.

 

 

30 Seconds To Mars, with Jared Leto

Ladies, cover your vaginas with something and run. Run far away.

 

 

Ashanti

And speaking of covering your vagina with something, let’s all give Ashanti a hand for managing that task.

 

 

Austin Mahone

The hand coming in from off-screen confirms what we’ve long suspected: The endless succession of twinks and tween princesses that this industry churns out are mostly animatronic devices or puppets of some sort. That’s why they’re disposable and yet so indistinguishable. They just switch up the heads every now and then.

 

 

Big Sean and Naya Rivera

We’re not lovig his vest at all and she’s serving up Morticia at the Adult Video Awards.

 

 

Coco Rocha

Whatever. Her posing schtick is so over-rated. The outfit’s nice, though.

 

 

Crystal Reed

Has she never heard of the VMAs?

 

 

Daft Punk

It’s a look. A perfectly tailored and fitted look, it must be said.

 

 

Darren Criss

Honestly? We want to like this but it looks like a high school production of “Guys and Dolls.”

 

 

Deena Cortese

Should we tell her she’s being slowly sucked into two black holes?

Let’s not.

 

 

Drake

It’s a look. They’re not our style but we like the boots.

 

 

Ellie Goulding

Definitely not a hugger.

 

 

Erin Wasson

She’s got the body for it and it was probably one of the most discussed and photographed looks of the night. We can’t really fault her choice. It’s the VMAs, after all. You gotta work to make that splash. But the head scarf was an odd topper.

Iggy Azalea

Why would anyone want a dress that made you look like you were naked AND being attacked by a flock of eagles?

Jenni Farley

David’s Bridal clearance rack fire sale.

 

 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

It’s fine. He looks good, but it’s not notable in any way.

 

 

Lil Kim

Wow. Batgirl’s had some work done.

 

 

Machine Gun Kelly

We actually love this look.

 

 

Nicole Polizzi

Banquet hall drapes.

 

 

One Direction

These kids are so boring. Harry hasn’t changed those pants in weeks.

 

 

Rebecca Marie Gomez

Believe it or not, we like the bottom half of this look. It’s adorable. Everything above the waist is tragic, however.

 

 

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton

That’s his look; that’s her look. We can pick it all apart, but it works for them and for the venue, we suppose.

Fuck that, they look tacky.

 

 

Will Smith

We like the jacket, but the combo of navy blue, black and dark green makes us wonder if Will isn’t depressed at the moment.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180174329 Elizabeth Phillips

      Maybe you shouldn’t have told 2 Chainz to take something off. It’s the VMAs, he probably would have chosen to take off his pants or something.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        That certainly would have been a much discussed look, however. If the idea is to maximize one’s um, exposure. Its a slam dunk. (smirking)

      • Sobaika

        I unabashedly love him and anything he wears. For no reason other than I’m pretty sure he’s the guy that wore a cape to the Grammys.

        • formerlyAnon

          He seems to inspire positive thoughts for arbitrary reasons – I saw him on t.v. somewhere and decided he’s a cut above all the other blingy singers I ignorantly confuse with each other because he had marvelous posture and moved really well during the brief “chat after performance.”

        • fursa_saida

          I’m just excited that he and Grimes had matching pants. (Judging from her tumblr, she was pretty excited too.)

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I immediately turned snarky in my head and thought, “Those are far more that just two chains – there’s at least three that I can spot!”

      • lilyvonschtupp

        2Chainz ain’t getting rid of those pants. He got them a Fifth Avenue Fashions for $399.99!

    • ♕ Natalie ♕

      i’ve been waiting for this post all day and you guys sure as hell did not disappoint!

    • Paigealicious

      I like Iggy’s look…but I just don’t get the obsession with One Direction. Maybe it’s because I lived through Backstreet Boys and N*Sync, but whenever I look at boy bands I get the urge to fall asleep.

      • Heather

        Or maybe it’s because you are not (I assume) a 12-year-old girl.

    • EKW2

      I miss Cher.

      • SugarSnap108

        This is literally what I was thinking as I sadly scrolled down — especially with the half-ass attempts at see-through.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Ashanti looks like a dress extra from the original Star Trek series.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Let’s just be glad Nurse Chapel didn’t wear that to confess her love to Spock. It still wouldn’t have swayed his decision and Chapel would’ve have been cold!

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          Hee Hee! It reminds me of a dress Bill Thiess did for the episode about their discovering the god Apollo on a planet. Leslie Parrish wore it. (wow, did I just geek out, or what?)

          • Sinéad Doyle

            Almost snap- I was reminded off Mudd’s Women! There was something in The Art of Star Trek about the ‘Thiess theory of titillation’ which was that the more likely a dress looked like it was about to fall off at any moment, the sexier/ more appropriate for alien women it was. This definitely fits the category.

            • Jacqueline Wessel

              Those old episodes are on METV every Saturday night. It’s amazing how great it looks, very Mondrian with the gold, blue and red shirts and the straight clean lines. It was so low budget at the time but it really has a distinct style that has gotten better over time.

            • Rand Ortega

              & remember, there was a ‘Decency Code’ back then that forbade the showing of belly buttons.

            • Sinéad Doyle

              Oh, I didn’t know that! I’ll be looking out for that next time I’m watching anything from the period, thanks.

          • Adriana_Paula

            I remember that dress! Inexplicable to actual ancient Greeks or Romans, but I loved it anyway!

          • Rand Ortega

            You are just too awesome for words. I love William Ware Theiss. Much like Janie Bryant, he really gave Trek it’s eponymous ‘look’. & had to make 90% of the costumes on a Kool Aid budget.

    • Telperion

      I thought Darren Criss looked fabulous. From the color of the suit to the glittery nails to go with the shoes. And that hair. Mmm.

      • Constant Reader

        I’m waiting for him to start singing “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.” In my world, that’s a compliment.

        • Me Again

          I love Darren’s suit. It’s just the black shirt that is making it look like a gangster outfit. He should keep the suit, but wear a different shirt, and it would look chic.

    • jeneria

      I adore Coco Rocha. She’s like Milla Jovovich to me, neither can ever do anything wrong.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        Yes, she always dresses perfectly!

      • demidaemon

        I agree. See my comment below!

    • decormaven

      Whoa, Lil Kim’s look is scary. In what universe do those boots coordinate with that outfit? Robin Thicke is two steps away from Vegas.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      So much “who?” And even more “ew.”

      • charlotte

        You win!

    • Heather

      All I can say to most of this is… gross. Re Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I stand by my comment on a previous post that it’s always better to be classy than trashy, even if it is the VMAs (or Adult Video Awards – I think some of these folks double-booked as TLo suggest).

      • Ginny Ellsworth

        I look at some of the clothes (and characters) and then go look at JGL for a few minutes. Kind of like he is a fashion palate cleanser.

        • sojourneryouth

          I love JGL, but I reeeeeallly wish he would stop making douchefaces every time he poses. I think he thinks he’s being funny or hipster-y??? He is such a handsome guy, and INCREDIBLY talented, but all his furious mugging makes him seem hyperactive and not very comfortable in his skin, like more of a boy than a man. I love his suits, though, and would take the opportunity to become Sojourner Gordon-Levitt in a heartbeat.

        • Renaissance_Man_ATL

          I love JGL and I cannot criticize him for this look. He’s dreamy. :)

    • Chipster

      I’m sooooo tired of the VMAs. Let’s move on, shall we?

    • Targettaste

      Crazy, but venue appropriate. Thanks for boring but adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt midway for an eyeball cleanse.

    • Janet B

      Daft Punk, 2 Chainz and Erin Wasson are my favorites.

    • charlotte

      Why do most of the guys look like giant douches? Someone should tell them than you can do edgy without that kind of attitude. While you’re at it, tell the women that there is a difference between sexy and tacky.

      • sojourneryouth

        From your mouth to Ashanti’s ears!

    • jennmarie19

      Who the ever-loving fuck ARE these people? I have heard of maybe 3 of them.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        that is a sign that you’re old.

        • jennmarie19

          Ha! I can’t argue with that. : )

        • Lanus

          LOL, wish that wasn’t the case, but suspect you’re right. especially because people keep saying “Oh, NSYNC was like 1 Direction for old people!” And my mind goes to “No, NSYNC was the new New Kids on the Block, who were the new Duran Duran. Also? MY LAWN: GET OFFA IT.”

          • Monzerrat Ontiveros

            NSYNC sucked! poor Joey, his legs must be killing him!!

          • rajf

            Child, you can’t say ‘get offa my lawn’ unless your boy band begats go back to the Monkees, at a minimum (she says, humming “Last Train to Clarksville”). ;)

    • Shawn EH

      Paula needed better hair. The dress is actually flattering, if showy. Robin needs to admit that skintight isn’t really where his body’s at right now. I think I’m gonna give it up for Drake, who’s like the chicest dude at the sports bar!

      • Whollyholeyholy

        Yeah, I kept looking at the still shot of him in the Beetlejuice getup with Miley bent over, butt-to-pelvis, and the only thought I was having, “That suit–so ugly, soooo much too small!”

        • http://www.GiftedCollector.com/ The Gifted Collector

          I have developed a real dislike of him and the VMA fiasco only adds to my growing list of reasons.

    • bxbourgie

      With the exception of Robin Thicke, his wife and Will Smith (and is that Lil Kim?) and a few other non notables, I have NO idea who a good portion of these people are. Good Lord. Everyone just looks so… YUCK. Hose them all down, de-louse them, give them a Bible and send them on their way. NEXT!

    • Karen Dickerson

      2 Chainz and Grimes wore the SAME PANTS. I was hoping y’all would feature her as well so we could judge them both accordingly. :)

      • Janet B

        He wore them better

      • Introspective

        OMG an epic bitch stole my look moment over the ugliest pants in the history of ugly pants.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        they both had the same styling, with the jewelt}ry and all that… Grimes looked adorable

      • MilaXX

        Didn’t they have the same issue at the BET awards? I think 3 guys wore the same look.

    • Introspective

      is anyone else bored?

    • iheartbuffy

      I feel very, very unhip in that I recognize about 4 of these people

    • Heather

      I kind of like the idea of Morticia attending the AVN Awards. (To be honest, other than the Oscars, if I had the choice that’s totally the award show I would attend myself. You know it’s a hoot.)

      • random_poster

        This gave me pause. I cannot sit through a televised awards show for the life of me, but the VMAs would be one to consider since it’s one train wreck after another.

    • Trisha26

      Will Smith looks like the valet attendant.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Snooki & JWOWW always dress for prom no matter what event they go! Come on ladies change it up!! The sequined jackets Daft Punk wore on stage were so much better wish they wore them on the RC instead.

      LOL at Batgirl!! Oh Kim…

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        Snooki and Jwoww used to wear only short animal printed dresses, they made an improvement.

        • demidaemon

          I suppose. They aren’t fashionistas or well-styled at all and they should just admit it rather than trying to fake it. Or hire better people.

        • Erica_Vuitton

          I agree its VERY much improved from wearing long tee shirts as dresses but they always wear these beaded off the rack prom gowns. They have enough money now to wear some designer dresses and step up their style game even more.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Haaaa! “David’s Bridal Fire Sale” and Batgirl! Heeeeeee…..

    • formerlyAnon

      It’s nice(?) to know that people who are invited to walk the red carpet have the same “what the hell am I going to wear/how am I going to make this mess look better than it does” moments in front of the closet as the rest of us.

    • SneakyKitty

      Geez, I’m not even 30 yet and I only recognize like three of these people. I’m just gonna ignore all the hot messes except JGL (well, and Daft Punk, but they’re not really ogle-able like JGL is).

      • cbt22

        Right there with you.

      • Sarah

        I was concerned about that fifteen years ago, since I grew UP with MTV, but I realized their demo must be about 15-21. It is not your fault.

    • Nicole C

      Wait, is Nicole what’s-her-face Snooki???

      • MilaXX

        yes! She lost her baby weight and she’s trying to act like a grown up.

        • Nicole C

          What’s funny is her shape didn’t throw me off, it was the lack of extreme duck lips. She looks really pretty smiling! Take note, other celebs.

    • mmebam

      Darren Cris is serving Zac Posen realness.

    • sagecreek

      Poor Crystal Reed looks so lost.

    • AmeliaEve

      Snooki looks positively understated, all things considered.

    • MoHub

      Coco Rocha: “You can tell I’m a model. Look how far I can pull my neckline open without showing any boobs!”

    • Donyelle

      Lil Kim as Pia Zadora (telling my age for sure)

    • MoHub

      Erin Wasson frightens me.

    • Squarah

      “Fuck that, they look tacky.”

      hahahahaha Perfect!

    • Jessica Freeman

      I will take JGL and leave the rest of the crazies at the after party….

    • Bexxx

      I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about Daft Punk. Flawless.

      • kimmeister

        Leave it to the French to get it right.

      • JasmineAM

        I love them and was hoping TLo would post them. They are perfect!

      • sojourneryouth

        Completely agree, top to toe. I really want the ladies’ version of those shoes. I’m serious.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      Correction: Harry hasn’t changed those pants in YEARSS!!!.

    • http://wipgirl.wordpress.com Kristel

      Jared Leto is just so… try-hard. He has knee zippers.

      • kimmeister

        He looks like a lost Olsen brother.

        • sojourneryouth

          Or the long lost, crack-addicted Hanson brother.

    • MilaXX

      Lil Kim needs to realize she’s no longer “lil” enough for catsuits and she needs to stay out of the plastic surgeons office.
      Are people still trying to make Ashanti happen?
      Drake needs to stop trying to pretend he’s a thug. Wheelchair Jimmy will always be the middle class kid from the ‘burbs.
      Robin & Paula always look like they just did it in the car ride over, and then smoked a doobie afterwards.
      If you haven’t seen it, please google Stephen Colbert & Bryan Cranston rolling skating to Daft Punk.

      • Rand Ortega

        “Are people still trying to make Ashanti happen?”
        Quote of the day!

        • sojourneryouth

          Only Ashanti is still trying to make Ashanti happen, thus the Roman sex-slave dress.

      • mlle

        I didn’t even realize Ashanti still existed. Wasn’t her last hit so long ago that it coincided with her guest appearance on Buffy?

        • MilaXX

          Don’t ask me, I never liked any of her feeble attempts at singing.

      • Bexxx

        Lil Kim is a goddess. There’s an undergrad course called “Hip-Hop Eshu: Queen
        Bitch 101” and a graduate class called “Hip-Hop’s Queen Bitch Writings” that discuss the way she challenges sexism and homophobia in rap. Her whole game is to be a total caricature. Nicki Minaj wouldn’t EXIST without Lil Kim. She is the bad bitch. She looks like a batshit insane cartoon character. As she should. My sermon is over.

        • MilaXX

          I’m not dismissing her place in Hip Hop history, but this is not a case of the crazy wigs and contacts that Lil Kim wore in her hey day, this is a case of bad plastic surgery and unintentionally bad clothing.

          • demidaemon

            Is it unintentionally? Because I don’t know how one would look at that outfit and think, “Best dressed list for sure!”

            The only explanation is that everyone involved was blind, high, or both.

            • MilaXX

              I think so. Lil was always going for super sexy, but out there looks. It’s really is true that Nicki owes a LOT of her success (and look to Kim. Also a little bit of thickness is not necessarily a bad thing in the urban community. I say unintentionally because ever since she started over doing the plastic surgery, her makeup has just gotten insane. Not good insane, like wacky, but insane like a person who has no idea how to do makeup; foundations the wrong shade, brows looking like they were filled in with a sharpie, contouring not even close to blended in. Sadly Kim is another diva that doesn’t have enough people in her corner telling her “No”. It makes me kinda sad.

      • demidaemon

        I just assume that Robin & Paula are always banging somewhere. Not that it makes their looks forgivable; it just explains why they always look half-dressed.

    • stephbellard

      is there a difference between dressing for the Grammys and dressing for the VMA’s? Or is “crazy shit” the criteria for both?

      • Donyelle

        depends if you’re about to drop a new LP/CD or whatever it’s called nowadays

      • demidaemon

        Grammys is more “crazy yet chic and now covered-up because the bigwigs said so.” VMAs is more “crazy and tacky so long as you don’t look like you got dressed and styled in the dark.” Just my two cents.

    • purpleprose78

      I’m glad to see the tech night for Dragon*Con went well. Machine Gun Kelly needs to find someone to do his zombie make up a little better and perhaps Lil Kim needs to find a yellow mask for her super hero costume.

    • save_the_hobbit

      Aww, you never do anyone from Big Time Rush (they’re like 1D except actually talented and nice guys). Kendall Schmidt was there and I wanted to see what you had to say about him. He wore a white v neck and short pants that were creased. It was kind of hilarious. He’s still cute though, bless him.

    • WintryMix

      The cut AND fit on Darren Criss’s jacket seem all wrong, and I think a shirt color other than black would have been better, but other than that, I loved his look. The suit color was perfect for the event and the glitter shoes were awesome.

      • broke&fashionable

        I know! I squeed at the glitter shoes.

        • eck

          The shoes were great. He even had matching glitter nail polish, there were some cute pictures of him comparing nail polish with adorable little girls.

    • mjude

      HA! my favorite kind of posts. i am sorry but lil kim is tragic

    • kimmeister

      Ashanti, I don’t think that slit is supposed to stretch open like that at the top. Even if it is supposed to, it doesn’t flatter anyone.

      Deena Cortese looks like she’s wearing a version of the dress that Anthony Ryan made in the real woman challenge.

    • frannyprof

      Naya and Sean: Kim and Kanye 2.0

      • Renaissance_Man_ATL

        No Way! They’re both WAY more talented!

    • ashtangajunkie

      I love red carpet rundowns. I also love Daft Punk around the world.

    • Town

      Will is depressed because he used to be the star of the VMAs. Now he doesn’t know who any of those children were up on the stage.

    • elemspbee

      Naya Rivera may serving up the Morticia look but her face is flawless in that pic. What’s wrong with Paula Patton’s and Robin Thicke’s faces?

      • demidaemon

        They probably just banged each other two seconds ago.

    • HobbitGirl

      It kind of sets off my OCD that 2 Chainz is wearing so many more than two chains. Dude. Branding!

    • TLJezebel

      Can the VMA’s be over now, please?

    • AC Simons

      L’il Kim or L’il Kenya Michaels? I can’t tell them apart.

    • Coleen

      Paula Patton is looking ROUGH. That look isn’t doing her a lick of favors, either. This would have been the perfect opportunity for her to change it up a bit, too.

    • Glam Dixie

      My thoughts on these folks…Ok, this shit storm of fashion only makes me realize how nice Adam Lambert looked, even with the frankenshoes. Will Smith isn’t depressed, he’s obviously color blind. Daft Punk look AMAZING. Why is Snooki there? Is she still having her 15 minutes? Naya Rivera is morphing into a Kardashian before my eyes. Drake is trying too hard to be something he isn’t. Lil’ Kim looks Ridiculous. I kind of dig Iggy Azalea’s look.

    • DTLAFamilies

      Daft Punk must’ve sweated their balls off. How do you sit through an entire awards ceremony with all that on?

      • demidaemon

        Air conditioned helmets?

    • Qitkat

      Aiye-yii-yii-yii. *shit storm of fashion* indeed. Thx @glamdixie:disqus
      I had a close call there with a mouthful of tea and my keyboard/screen with the animatronic comment!

    • Danielle

      Daft Punk’s shoes are giving me LIFE, and I can practically feel Lil Kim’s camel toe from here.

      • Donyelle

        shimmering jodhpurs boots . i’m so here for them!

    • Emily Smith

      I swear everytime I see Harry Styles I get a wiff of him trying to style himself a little bit like Jim Morrison. Ever seen The Doors movie? In it Jim wore the same leather pants for like 3 weeks with a loose and mostly unbuttoned shirt on top. It’s the same…he must stink kind of look and similar fit of pant. Don’t think I’m making a musical comparison, that’s just rude to Jim.

    • Michelle Wilson

      Daft Punk looked great under the stage lights.

    • Call me Bee

      Shit I’m old.

      • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

        Me too. I barely know any of these darned kids.

    • Lanus

      Every time I see Daft Punk, I wonder if it’s really them. Damn Chris Hardwick for saying on The Nerdist that he was tempted to start doing fake Daft Punk surprise concerts!

    • mhleta

      All of this makes me want to build a space ship and go in search of some other civilization and never return.

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        Seriously no, that is where 90% of these people *came* from. You go out into space, what you are going to find is.. the VMAs red carpet. :)

        I recommend creating yourself a safe bat cave somewhere here on earth instead. Maybe with lasers and telescopes, to take out those incoming spacecraft full of these people arriving. :)

        • mhleta

          Not far enough. There must be another galaxy somewhere that hasn’t heard of the Kardashians. Is it bad that this is making me identify with Jody Foster’s character in Elysium?

      • Kate4queen

        You should check in with Daft Punk about making that happen… :)

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      I NEED those sparkly man shoes Daft Punk are wearing. Does anyone know who makes them or where I could find them? LOVE.

      Pls to note, Joseph Gordon_Levitt does not require notable clothes, as he has an enormously notable face with extraordinarily notable expressions. He is so darn cute puppies and kittens fall from the sky like snowflakes, wherever he appears. :)

      • jjtxgrrl

        I agree about JGL. I swoooon over him. Sigh.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Random thoughts…
      Jared Leto (30 Seconds to Mars, on the right) looks astonishingly good for nearly 42 years old. Must be a photo of Dorian Gray somewhere.

      The first thing I noticed on Erin Wasson was the turban.

      Robin Thicke’s wife is so pretty, but she really could use a good stylist.

      Bridal dress fires sale indeed, but that about the most covered up I’ve seen JWoww.

      It needs to be against the law for Lil Kim to have any more plastic surgery.

      It is causing me physical pain that one of the guys from One Direction is wearing my favorite Joy Division tshirt. Almost makes me want to pray (and I am an atheist) that he knows who they are.

        Girl, Robin Thicke is Paula Patton’s husband, not the other way around.

          That is Hilarious! Is that why he was so excited to give it to Miley?

          I stand corrected.:)

      Iggy’s dress might be more apt if she was being attacked by a “Flock of Seagulls”

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Well, that was fun!

      Leave Will alone– he’s had a trauma recently. The medical term: Sitting in the front row of a skankfest.
      Robin Thicke & Paula Patton– Steve & Edie circa 1975. Bloated, has been drag.
      2 Chains — Fab. VMA appropriate. Not taking it serious covered in Versace. My friends in the music biz in ATL say head to toe Versace is all the rage there.
      Daft Punk–Daft Punk. Uber cool. Though I wonder if the mysterioso schtick will eventually become a bit Blue Man Group.
      Coco Rocha & Machine Gun Kelly FTW– Rocker hot.
      JGL– Hot. I don’t care that he’s dressed like a hipster banker. I love him.
      Erin Wasson– I don’t care for the ruching & the Gloria Swanson headgear– but, BA-BAM! That look certainly paid for itself in attention getting.
      Jenni Farley– I thought Catherine Zeta Jones took a wrong turn.
      Everyone else– Not even worth mentioning.

      If Coco Chanel told 2 Chainz to take off one thing before he left the house, who wants to bet it would be his pants?

      I don’t know 90% of these people, so I don’t really care what they’re wearing. Besides, MTV doesn’t play videos or music anymore, do they? So why are they doing awards for them?

    • LaSylphide

      Aside from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Will Smith, who ARE these people? And why do they dress like that? And while we’re asking unanswerable questions, what’s the mean of life?

      Daft Punk: Best dressed, hands down, though JGL and Darren Criss still look good.

      Naya Rivera is slowly morphing into the love child of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez.

      Zayn from Wonder Ection always looks like he’s constipated.

      Will looks really tired. Maybe he is depressed…

    • HM3

      Why does wearing something original and whacky mean “go naked?” I applaud those (pseudo-)celebs who were able to sport non-ass-revealing fashion appropriate for the occasion. The rest are boring or overdressed.

    • Kate4queen

      Daft Punk for the Win! What beautiful tailoring :)

      “The hand coming in from off-screen confirms what we’ve long suspected: The endless succession of twinks and tween princesses that this industry churns out are mostly animatronic devices or puppets of some sort. That’s why they’re disposable and yet so indistinguishable. They just switch up the heads every now and then.”

      I just died.

      Also, Li’l Kim’s outfit is making MY crotch hurt. Can’t even imagine what it did to hers.

    • demidaemon

      I don’t care what you say about Coco Rocha. I love her and always will. And I love her outfit here.

      Lil Kim needs an intervention or something That look is nightmare-inducing.

    • Lizzy

      How in the name of all that is holy do you sit down in Ellie’s dress???

    • Barbara Affolter

      I have a great story, a “friend of a friend” story, about Jared Leto getting his scrawny butt kicked by a Nashville burlesque dancer. It isn’t really my story to tell, but that has never stopped me.

      • harlowish

        Well then, do tell!

    • lilyvonschtupp

      2CHAINZ!!!!!!!

    • lilyvonschtupp

      Please someone shoot Lil’ Kim and put her out of her misery.

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      I have to disagree re Big Shawn and Naya. I think they look fab. She is rockin’ that dress!

    • quiltrx

      Daft Punk and Darren Criss FTW! Great fit guys. And I will gladly take Darren’s shoes, and would cut you all for DP’s!

    • quiltrx

      And I’m totally wondering how many of the youngsters at the show thought Lil Kim was Chaka Khan.

    • kathrineb

      I am so glad I don’t recognize most of these people!
