Any MTV awards seem to promise a wide range of interesting looks – some amazing, some not so. This Sunday’s awards were dominated by the news of Beyoncé’s pregnancy, Lady Gaga turning up as her alter-ego – a man named Jo, and Katie Perry wearing four different outfits – everyone bad!
Here are some of the looks I really liked..and a few I didn’t.
Beyoncé looked beautiful in a sari style dress by Lanvin. This reminded me of the green dress that JLo once worn to the Oscars, and I think it screamed style and elegance whilst covering that little baby bump. The colour looked great on her, and I also loved those chandelier earrings that added just enough bling to the outfit.
Vanessa Hudgens also looked totally gorgeous in her 1920s inspired look. With this silver dress from Candie’s Couture, and hair in 1920s bangs, she looked like she was channelling the ghosts of Jean Harlow, and the look of Reese Witherspoon in Water for Elephants. Vanessa is someone usually off my style radar, I’m not impressed with faux hippies, but this look totally transformed her. A+
Zoe Saldana and Katie Holmes both went down the short route. Katie went for a simple fit and flare style dress from Azzedine Alaia that flattered her figure. I loved the cute addition of desert boots to this outfit. Zoe wore a chic black cocktail dress from Barbara Bui that she accessorised with the hot new trend for the new season – snake-skin sandals.
Adele went for her usual 1960s diva style that again just looked so perfect for her. I loved the Burberry Brit dress that she chose, and her bouffant style hair just looked impeccable. Adele flies the flag for simple, yet elegant designs that always exude ladylike sophistication. She stands out from the Snooki-fest glitter for all the right reasons!
And a few not so good looks…
Kelly Rowland is an absolutely gorgeous women, with a knockout figure. What could possibly go wrong? Well wearing a dress that gives you the appearance of needing a bikini wax pretty sharpish is one thing that did go wrong. I don’t know if the hairy bit on this dress was a furry sporran, but it just looked rude – 1970s rude if you need clarification. Still, here hair looked glorious.
Lady Gaga turned up as Example!
Kim Kardashian looked like she had been poured into her showgirl style dress..and that some of her missed! When she gets it right she looks so beautiful, but this dress is just a little bit trampy. I particularly hated the back with its flesh coloured mesh panel.
Nicki Minaj dressed as an explosion at Toys R Us. Totally bonkers!
