Did anyone watch the Video Music Awards on MTV last Sunday? Most were watching for who won the awards. Some were watching for who wore what. I was watching for both, though I don't think the Britney Spears tribute or Amy Winehouse tribute did them any justice.
- Jo Calderone(in suits by Brooks Brother and Dior Homme) taught us that simple is sometimes the best way to stand out, and how to truly open the VMAs. He accepted the Moonmens on behalf of Gaga, cause she couldn't come. You shouldn't spill beer on the floor Jo, because that's how you trip and fall.
- Usually, when someone wears something completely bizarre, they usually have a reason for it. But somehow, I did not manage to find the reason behind Nicki Minaj's outfit. Even if it was very weird, you have to admit it makes pretty good press for her.
- Katy, Katy, Katy. Last year's simple dress works much better. This year's frequent changes(about 5 from what I count from Tumblr) was somewhat like VMAs 2009, in which Lady Gaga changed into 6 different outfits, almost all were somewhat related. But an Atelier Versace Japanese Lolita dress, a purple Tom Ford lace number and a Dior Fall 2011 couture dress don't have a common theme(unless you count wacky, which I'm for) In face, her fair clashes horribly with the Tom Ford dress, and the yellow cubic head piece looks familiarly like a cheese cube. I know for a fact that the Dior collection is inspired by many themes of Dior, like the geometric aspect, but it doesn't stop it from looking like a gigantic cheese cube. (I can't resist adding, but rather like an appetizer to Gaga's meat dress)
- Beyonce in Lanvin one-shoulder, knockout. It is a stunner and shows off her baby pump(Destiny's Child, ahem) Later on, the tuxedo outfit she wore when performing and broke the baby news is sophisticate and simple. While I earned respect for Beyonce dancing in heels while pregnant, steal Jessie J's chair you're pregnant!(sorry Jessie J, I do love your vocals in between commercial breaks)
- One of the rare times, Britney looks better than she had in years with those highlighted locks and Moschino sequined dress. Not so sure about the shoes, but it looks better in the second picture.
- In a figure-hugging, safe number and signature puffy up-do came Adele. Adele is the kind of woman that looks good in classic clothing. I can't really imagine her in anything risque.
