2015 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on September 01, 2015

SCENE: T Lo editorial meeting, T Lo Towers, 6 am:

Lo: Are we doing any of the remaining VMA red carpet people?
T: Let me see. Mmmmmm. No. They’re boring.
Lo: Throw them all in a rundown?
T: Line ’em up.
Cats: Meow.

Cara Delevingne in Saint Laurent
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)

Love it. It could use an inch more, but she’s a model. She can handle it.


Ciara in Alexandre Vauthier Couture
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (2)

She better hope no one plugs in a fan anywhere near her.


Emily Ratajkowski in Altuzarra
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (3)

Girlfriend is BRINGING IT. Because her movie BOMBED. Because her co-star was lazy on the red carpet! Possibly! Anyway she BROUGHT IT.

And maybe she could’ve left half of it home. This is an either/or situation. Either the boots or the dress, dear.


Gabourey Sidibe in Valentina Illusion
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (4)

We don’t think anything about this really works for her. She looks like she’s thinking he same thing.


Gigi Hadid in Emilia Wickstead
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (5)

Dracula’s Daughters Go to South Beach, starring Gigi Hadid.


Hailee Steinfeld in Stella McCartney
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (6)

As so many lady stars have proven time and time again, a jumpsuit is a very tough garment to make look chic. We realize it’s Stella McCartney and so many of you kittens go full-on pitchforks-and-torches villager when you read her name, but dammit. This really is chic. And we think she nailed it with the jewelry, bag and shoe choices. It’s a great look.

See below for a decidedly un-chic take on the jumpsuit.


Holland Roden in Vivienne Tam
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (7)

We’re sorry to have to say this for the thousandth time, but this would have been so pretty if it had just been lined or worn with a chemise.


Kat Graham in Versace
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (8)

No lie, we had A COUCH that looked like this in the nineties. We called it… wait for it …

“the Versace couch.” Yes, marvel at our wit, darlings. And our taste.

At any rate, we’re not crazy about the shape, but we don’t hate this. Possibly for nostalgia for our old couch.


Kourtney Kardashian in Balmain
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (9)

Angry porn star.


Kris Jenner in Givenchy
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (10)

For someone who – let’s be real here – is chasing after her youth as hard as she can, this is such a surprisingly bad choice. She erred on the side of dowdiness when we would have bet the house she’d have erred in the exact opposite direction.


Kylie Jenner in Balmain
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (11)

The Cartoon Adventures of Kim Kardashian.

There. We said it.


Rebel Wilson in Eloquii
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (13)

Truly awful. Horrifyingly so. We actually like the hair. It’s a change for her and it totally suits the venue. But the metallic silver trim on the neckline set our eyelids atwitching when we first glimpsed it. By the time we got to the weirdly awful shape and color-blocking, we started crying.

We exaggerated that last part to see if you were still paying attention. Anyway: Bad dress.


Rita Ora in Vera Wang
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (14)




Serayah in Hervé Léger by Max Azria
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (15)

Everyone who’s ever been in possession of:

a) a cat, and

b) a set of mini-blinds,

need hear no more from us when it comes to this … this…



Violet Chachki
2015-MTV-Video-Music-Awards-VMAS-Red-Carpet-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (16)

She keeps proving why RuPaul chose her for the win. She’s the most high fashion queen in the show’s history.
