The MTV Video Music Awards are known for not only some crazy on-stage moments, but for the outrageous fashion on the red carpet. Celebrities forgo any and all fashion rules to make statements or to simply grab some headlines. Miley Cyrus turned heads in a silver barely there number, while Nick Jonas made us sweat (not in a good way) while draped in head to toe leather. Still, some stars managed to turn heads for their impressive style.
Check out our favorite, and not so favorite, red carpet looks.
Rosemary’s Pick: Kourtney Kardashian. With all the outrageous outfits on the red carpet, it was no easy feat to stand out in a simple bright coral jumpsuit, but Kourtney managed to pull it off. Kourtney paired the outfit with gold jewels, heels and a matching clutch. The eldest of the Kardashian sisters wore her dark hair straight and sleek giving her a sexy sophisticated look. No doubt about it, Kourtney dropped jaws as she stepped out in the Balmain number. (Also, thank you for giving short girls everywhere hope for rocking a jumpsuit!)
Frances’ Pick: Nicki Minaj. Nicki is known for her crazy red carpet outfits, especially for award shows like the VMA’s, but she kept things a little more low key in a metallic gold sheer dress by Labourjoisie. Don’t get me wrong, she was showing a lot of skin, but the pearl accents and perfectly placed cutouts made the outfit look more sophisticated versus flashy. Her perfectly contoured face makeup, winged eyeliner and blunt bangs hairstyle gave her a gorgeous natural makeup look that completed the ensemble.
