Red Carpet - MTV Video Music Awards 2013

Red Carpet Fashion
MTV Video Music Awards 2013

This Sunday saw the annual MTV Video Awards (VMAs) take place in New York City where a host of young talented stars strutted their stuff. There were far too many disappointing lackluster looks and just a few stand outs. This is the red carpet roundup.

VMA's In Vogue
Crystal Reed exuded elegance in a red ZAC Zac Posen gown with strapless peplum top and layered mermaid skirt. Selena Gomez struck an attractive pose in a sexy fitted midnight blue Atelier Versace gown with sheer embroidered inner bustier. Sarah Hyland picked out a feminine gold and red wine chiffon layered gown by MarchesaZoey Deutch looked suave in a metallic gold bustier and skirt with black trims by Jonathan Simkhai. 

Sleek Sophistication
Naya Rivera was stunning in a form-fitting vintage black cut-out gown by Paco RabanneAllison Williams brought some class to the red carpet in a beautiful ivory Valentino dress. Taylor Swift went retro in a glamourous black Herve Leger gown with beaded plunge neckline. Alexandra Daddario kept things polished in a black and white DKNY dress with sheer yoke and ankle cuff heels.

Glam Rock
Jennifer Hudson looked tres chic in a houndstooth and black leather look by Christian DiorKaty Perry brought on the 'Roar' factor in an animal print Emanuel Ungaro dress decked with gold embellishments. Coco Rocha styled her gold studded Fausto Puglisi biker jacket with a black tank and skinny jeans. Lady Gaga went goth in a custom made Prabal Gurung gown with bow-adorned waist and long rubber sequined train.

Girl Groups
Fifth Harmony was kitted out in matching black and chartreuse outfits, whilst the ladies of Danity Kane made a red carpet comeback in black and white.

Youth in Progress
Shailene Woodley paired her black cropped top with a blue & gold patterned Emilio Pucci skirt. Ariana Grande wore a flirty blue floral frock by Kenley CollinsCoco Jones looked trendy in a gold sequined blazer & floral corset with matching skater skirt by The Hellers. Jillian Rose Reed was modernistic in a tangerine and white colourblocked cut-out dress by Three FloorMiley Cyrus opted for an awkward 90's inspired ensemble by Dolce & Gabbana featuring a vintage black crop top & leggings embedded with colourful gemstones.


Drama in the Details
British songstress Ellie Goulding donned a fully spiked nude turtleneck gown with thigh-high split by Amato Couture. Holland Roden stunned in an art deco embellished Naeem Khan ensemble with ivory ballroom skirt and tailored trousers underneath. Ciara turned heads in a sheer embroidered champagne gown by Givenchy, which features a feathered skirt. Rita Ora amped up the drama in an ice blue Alexandre Vauthier gown with low-neck crystal beaded bodice, black waistband and fully feathered skirt with daring slit.

Who was your best or worst dressed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards?

Antonella Leone said...

fifth armony was the best but I don't like the others :S

Busisiwe Mgoboli said...

Selena Gomez looks amaze; risky dress but lucky for her it works. Ciara looks like a super star in that dress. Some of the looks are too underwhelming..like Jennifer Hudson, nice dress but not for this event.

Thanks Sam for sharing

Coco said...

Crystal Reed's dress is amazing but she doesn't show it off brilliantly. On the other hand Taylor Swift exudes elegance enough to make up for everybody else. I see a lot of faux pas here, don't you?
Have a lovely week ahead!

Paola Lauretano said...

Great dresses selection Sam!

Have a lovely week, my dear!

Gabriele said...

My faves were selena gomez and taylor swift. I agree and think there were too many disappointing looks this year..
I did a similar post today too, so check it out and let me know your opinion! :)

Ali Hval said...

Hollan's dress is amazing, wow! I just love how ethereal that fabric looks, so gauzy and sheer and the slight off-white nude color really helps to make it art deco-ish, just like you said! Beautiful selection of pictures. I will forever love your description of these dresses and fashions.

I also really love Ariana's dress--it looks like a toughened up floral dress with how edgy the silhouette is.

The Garage Starlets said...

Love Holland Roden's dress!

I'm surprised! These are a lot more understated than what I usually expect from the MTV awards. It's a nice surprise though!

andysparkles said...

Hmm I really don't like Danity Kane's Look, it's too much, or rather too less. I can't even tell which look I like, I think none of these looks.

I agree there really wasn't that many good looks and so many bad ones! My best is probably Taylor Swift and my worst is is Miley but I do think there were a lot of bad looks aside from Miley too! What about you? Whose your best/worst??

Carmen said...

Again so many great outfits that I can´t decide who´s best dressed! However I don´t like Katy Perry´s dress at all :/

I'm sad I wasn't able to watch this last night, but am so glad you made this post!!! My favorite group is the sleek sophistication girls. I love the clean lines and how chic the styles are. I didn't even recognize Taylor Swift! I also like Ariana Grandes outfit. It's so girly and fun. My least favorite has to be Miley Cyrus' outfit. Her hair is disastrous and it seems like she's trying to hard.

Hi dear Sam... I have no favorites at all, but Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus make my worst dressed list unfortunately. They both have amazing bodies, but were just wearing the wrong looks for them.

Crystal Reed looks great. Aside from that I am not a huge fan of all the looks this year, only so-so, nothing too daring or different

Selena Gomez was my best-dressed, but I also liked Shailene Woodley's, Taylor Swift's and Allison William's looks! And I don't know if I liked her dress, but Ciara looked stunning!

I watched Fashion Police on E! and everybody praised Gaga's gown and Miley's outfit.:) What's that saying, beauty is in the eye of the beholder - you can say that again.:D I'm definitely crushing on Taylor and Selena's dresses (and bodies) BIG TIME.
