VMAs 2017: Yara Shahidi in Zimmermann and Rodarte

Posted on August 28, 2017

Because why wear one dress to an event when you can wear two? True  fashionistas know the score.

What’s mildly interesting about her choices is how relatively low-key they are, all things considered. It’s like she figured if she was going to the effort to wear two dresses, keeping them fairly standard would prevent her from coming off too extra. As if she had a certain number of style points to spend on this red carpet and opted for two relatively chic dresses rather than one extravagant and over-the-top ensemble.

We feel like we’re right on the verge of a full-on embrace of the ’80s Dynasty aesthetic. Not so much because there’s a CW reboot coming, but because all the socio-political factors that produced Dynasty are back in force in the present day. We suspect a defiant opulence is on its way, is what we’re saying.

Anyway, this looks pretty good. We’re not huge fans of the skirt or the color, but she’s got enough poise to make it all work for her. The hair really makes the look.

This is fun. Apparently she was in an asymmetrical-hem kind of mood. (“Fun” T Lo Fact: After 11 years of fashion blogging, we STILL can’t spell “asymmetrical” correctly on the first try.) Love the shoes, but we’re not sure they work with this dress.
