And we’re back! Or rather, they are. After a long sojourn in the desert, we find ourselves faced with a cornucopia of cray celebrity style, thanks to the defiantly produced 2020 VMAs, which managed to serve up a full night of awards-show entertainment, jaw-dropping performances and celebrity style both high and low. Never before have we been so grateful to see so many questionable outfits. In a way, it’s fortunate that the first big red carpet (esque) event since February was the VMAs, because it’s always been the one awards show red carpet with the loosest rules and the lowest expectations. We’re not talking Met Gala here, people. The looks have traditionally always been loud, tacky, and even sometimes vulgar. To suggest that they shouldn’t be is to miss the point of the VMAs. And on that note, welcome back, Miley!
It’s Mugler! It’s see-through! It’s covered in hundreds of coke mirrors! It could not possibly be more on point for the occasion and Miley’s just the gal who knows how to vamp her way through the picture-taking. It’s fun. And we can’t say she doesn’t look fantastic in it. We’re still trying to come to terms with the mullet-shag, even though we know fucked-up hair is something of a Cyrus family tradition. The makeup looks great and we love the heavy chain necklace. Two quibbles, just to have some (we’re trying to limber up the ol’ bitch muscles after months of not using them): we think the gloves would be better without the heavy beads, which tend to fight with the l’il coke mirrors and we can’t help thinking the shoes are kinda basic and generic. Granted, the dress doesn’t call for heavy, focus-pulling footwear, but those are so .. respectable in comparison to the rest of it.
