VMA 2016 Best Dressed: Dresses You can take from the Red Carpet to Own
MTV started a new era in music one that blended video and music, fashion and celebrity status. This year’s MTV Awards, unfortunately, was far from the popularity and viewers it commanded back when it was launched in 2001. Over a year decade after though, the VMAs continue to be followed for the top brass celebrities (and even the wannabes) who grace the show whether for the most coveted moonman or, the red carpet circus.
Here are 7 of the best outfits in this year’s VMAs:
1. Ariana Grande
Other than her sweet and innocent face, Ariana wore an all-black ensemble. She had a laced, off-the-shoulder top that showed off her well-trimmed abs. It was paired with black, square pants, choker, and a high pony.
2. Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, Laurie Hernandez and Simone Biles. The US Gymnastics Team’s Powerful 4 also graced the VMAs. The ladies showed off their well-toned bodies in knee-length dresses. Team Captain, Aly, wore a champagne dress that was accented with white flowers and some sparklies. Madison wore a sequinned gown in teal. Laurie wore a scallop tube dress in blue. World Champ, Simone looked smart and young in a bright pink, closed neck, lace dress paired with sparkly gold shoes.
3. Nicki Minaj
One of today’s biggest artists in music, Nicki Minaj was a show stopper in a Bao Tranchi royal blue sheer dress that showed off all the right skin in all the right places! Nicki was even more gorgeous with less, that is, only nude makeup and winged eyes on, and her long, straight, black hair running from her head, all the way down to her waist.
4. Hailee Steinfeld. The young Academy Award nominee for Best Supporting Actress was captivatingly sweet and fresh in a colorful Balmain, long-sleeved, knee-length dress. The dress was gorgeously woven in blue, yellow, orange, red and black threads. Hailee’s hairdo and makeup was simple and matched her gorgeous dress.
5. Stella Maxwell
The model was all about the youthful culture MTV is known for, clad in a colorful Jeremy Scott cropped top and square pants pairing. Stella was simply ready for a partey!
6. Hailey Baldwin. Celebrated model and daughter of Stephen Baldwin, Hailey, wore a Georges Chakra see-through black jumpsuit that had embroidered leaves on it. She completed the look with ankle-strapped sandals and huge loop earrings.
Sean Diddy Comb’s long-time model girlfriend rocked the VMAs in a greyish green open blazer that showed her bare chest with nothing but crisscrossed gold chains on. She wore a smashing gold, square pants, accented with a bright yellow bob and a gold mini handbag.
The VMAs may have lost some of the spotlight due to huge changes that have been happening when it comes to media and the still growing dominance of social media but the public’s eyes will continue to be glued on today’s hottest and brightest celebs.
