Overall, I'd say that the fashion at this year's VMAs was overwhelmingly underwhelming. For an award show that is known for its risque environment, attendees definitely played it safe. (As I write this I wonder if I have become completely desensitized to inappropriate clothing due to the recent requirement for female pop stars to be ridiculously provocative in order to get any media attention). Anyway, that's a conversation for another time. Preceding comment aside, the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards were pretty tame.
Although there were some outliers (I'm looking at you, Amber Rose and Katy Perry), a majority of the red carpet walkers rocked all black ensembles, which I admire immensely. Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus both went the black leather route, with Grande in Moschino and Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier. And while the former child stars both looked great, I think my favorite looks of the night are Kylie Jenner in Alexandre Vauthier and Solange Knowles in H&M (!??!!).
Let's face it; Kylie Jenner killed it in her floor length silk gown with a semi-scandalous slit (she is 17 after all). It's so effortlessly cool, you almost forget that she is a member of the attention seeking Kardashian clan. And Solange always looks chic, but the fact that she a) wore a baggy blazer/pants combo to the VMAs and b) wore H&M, just makes everything ten times better. This is a perfect example of less is more. I think the VMAs are a great place to be trendy. So brava, Kylie and Solange. I approve.
I don't totally understand all of the hype around Beyonce. Sure, she's beautiful and talented, but I don't understand why everyone worships her. I'll give her some credit for being a feminist. I'm very pro feminism. And releasing her album without any press was pretty badass. Ok, maybe I do like Beyonce, but not for her music. Anyway, Beyonce feelings aside, I love that "I woke up like this" (#flawless) has become a thing. It's phenomenal. It's no wonder it's been quickly adopted by the fashion industry. Every fashion girl wakes up each day and spends too much time trying to look like they didn't try at all. This shirt is like an optical illusion, tricking people into thinking that I woke up looking like this, when in reality, I didn't. You have to admit though, this outfit is pretty #flawless.
