The VMA’s are a time for artists to stand out for their musical talents and, of course, for their fashion selections. However, the attention received regarding the latter is not always the kind they were seeking, or ideal. From head-to-toe fringe to tight satin gowns, there was not shortage of originality. Check out TRUE’s picks for the Worst and Best Dressed celebs of the the 2015 VMA’s.
The Worst Offenders
It’s no surprise that Miley Cyrus, who hosted the VMA’s, would opt for an outrageous outfit to shock the audience. However, there is nothing really surprising or shocking about Miley’s choice. The only eye-catching part of Miley’s ensemble is her silver suede thigh-high boots.
This barely-there number could have been stunning, but the ill fitting top and extra-short length takes it from potentially glamorous to simply gaudy. The singer’s top knot, harsh liner, and stilettos harshen, rather than soften, the look.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Both Kanye and Kim’s monotoned and oversized outfits place them on the worst-dressed list. The fabric choices and proportions for both celebs make them look weighed down. Additionally, the large cargo pockets detract from Kim’s signature hour-glass figure and leave her looking sloppy.
Fringe may be in, but with so much of it going on, it makes it hard to focus on what this outfit has to offer. The tight-laced high neckline, strappy heels, and flowing hair, make this outfit look messy and undone, rather than fashion-forward and edgy.
This dress may have had potential, but the leather studded thigh-high boot leave it looking heavy and drab. An updo and a pair of stilettos would have been better choices to balance out the dark metallic fabric and long length.
The lace detail and long flowing fabric gives a sophisticated feel to this sheer black dress. Classic and simple hair, makeup, shoes, and accessories enhance, rather than compete, with the dress.
Hailee does minimalistic right, showing how powerful a “less is more” approach can be when making a fashion statement. The shiny gold accessories and slicked back hair compliment the white pantsuit and create a sleek and styled look.
Nicki Minaja looks stunning in her see-through ensemble. With the perfect amount of coverage and beautiful subtle details, the dress enhances her figure and showcases her flawless makeup.
This dress radiates sleek and sexy, with its extreme plunging neckline, shiny black satin, and impeccable fit. The solid black color and full-length silhouette balances the top perfectly.
While Hudgen’s dress may be a little too textured for some, the solid color and subtle details make this full-bodied dress work. Her natural makeup and long flowing locks give a relaxed boho feel to the pale, plunging, gown.
