Best Dressed / August 25, 2014

The VMAs are infamous for having crazy fashion moments, and Sunday night was no exception.

A red carpet that consisted of more skin than clothing, the stars did not disappoint. While there was no meat dress this year, there was a throwback to 2001 and even an on-stage wardrobe malfunction (um, cue Nicki Minaj).

Nina Dobrev In Zuhair Murad

BEST DRESSED

Nina Dobrev in Zuhair Murad

The “Vampire Diaries” and “Let’s Be Cops” star delivered a knockout on the red carpet Sunday night. Rocking a red and black Zuhair Murad gown, the actress looked edgy and sexy at the same time. Never one to disappoint when it comes to fashion, Miss Dobrev completed her look with a chic high ponytail, red lips, simple black sandals and a colorful clutch. Simply stunning, as usual.

Jamie Chung In Versace And Nude Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ Sandals

BEST BORDEAUX

While others chose red for the VMAs Red Carpet Sunday night, no one quite pulled it off like Miss Jamie Chung. Know for her chic style, this “Sin City” star showed every man that she was a dame worth killing for in a stunning red Versace mini. Rocking the hottest shoe of the season, Stuart Weitzman’s “Nudist” sandal in a simple nude, Jamie Chung let the dress speak for itself.

Taylor Swift In Mary Katrantzou

BEST PRINTED ONE PIECE

It wasn’t red, or sparkly, or a crop-top. But a unitard? The Mary Katrantzou romper-unitard was a fresh change for Taylor Swift on the red carpet. Paired with Elie Saab booties, loose waves and her signature red lipstick, Miss Swift proved that she can “Shake it Off” with the best of them. One thing is for sure, Taylor has got the legs to pull off this look.

BLACK BEAUTIES

Apparently, Black is the new black. The most popular color on the red carpet last night was black, and each look was new and exciting.

Miley Cyrus In Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Rocking a black leather crop-top and matching trousers, the “Wrecking Ball” singer took home the top prize last night for Video of the Year. Wearing Alexandre Vauthier Couture and silver sandals, Miley Cyrus looked tame compared to last years’ twerking incident.

Kendal & Kylie Jenner Kendall In Alon Livne

While Kim Kardashian wore an extremely ill-fitted plunging Balmain dress, she looked tiny and out of place as she stood next to her half-sisters. The Jenner girls, however, wore unique black looks that demanded attention. Kylie donned a silk black wrap dress with a high slit. Kendall chose a mesh top and bralette and black trousers. These two keep proving that they are on their way to surpassing their famous siblings.

Chanel Iman In Balmain

The model killed it in a body-hugging Balmain dress that looked as though ropes had been wrapped around her body. Our only question is: isn’t Chanel Iman hot in this long sleeve, tight fitted dress?

BEST Throwback Katy Perry And Riff Raff

BEST THROWBACK

Katy Perry and Riff Raff

Katy Perry decided to hit the red carpet last night in a déjà vu, throwback look circa 2001. With Riff Raff as her date, both of them wore custom Versace denim outfits. Taking home an award for her song “Dark Horse feat. Juicy J”, Miss Perry was not afraid to make a statement Sunday night at the VMAs, clad in bedazzled denim.
