MTV VMAs - the good, the bad and the ugly

Last night's VMAs caused a style storm as celebrities took to the red carpet in the best and worst outfits of this season. Once again the population of tinseltown attempted to outdo each other in an array of dresses, sharp suits and some other more unusual combos. Like school prom night, style statements were made by some unlikely heroes and heroines, the dreamy looked, well, dreamy as per, those who played it safe looked 'yawn' nice and others dug some very unusual outfits out from granny's attic.

So, without further ado, here are the good, the bad and the ugly VMAs 2014:

Beyonce Knowles

Bey channeled Morticia Addams in an elegant, demure number. The see-through lace panels added a little interest to the look and the fabulous earrings give a nod to Mrs Carter's signature style. This look is perfect for an awards ceremony and shows that Bey's role as a mum hasn't compromised her glamorous ways.


Taylor Swift

WHAT IS THIS?! Seriously though, however much I dislike Taylor Swift I have to admit, she's got great pins and (normally) fab style. This Mary Katrantzou playsuit is a strong piece but definitely not teamed with purple stripper heels on the red carpet. Although her legs look amazing, the cut of the suit is giving Ms Swift a bad case of camel toe. Something vintage in emerald green to contrast her statement red lip would've worked so much better, or even a close cut trouser suit a la Jessica Hart in Dion Lee. 


Sam Smith 

Even for the tender age of 21, Sam sure knows how to wear a suit. The midnight blue colour and sharp, thin collar gives Mr Smith an usual look which is both stylish and current. I'm a little unsure about the shoes, which resemble something Shrek would wear, however I do love the overall look. Well in Sam! 


Chris Brown 

One of my bugbears are joggers with elasticated ankles, they should only be worn in the privacy of the home or by toddlers, so Chris has no excuse for this slobbish look. Granted, he's a rapper and therefore quite a bad ass, however, the dark glasses and red trainers seem out of place on the red carpet. Add his lumberjack shirt and bin-bag style bomber to the mix and you have a look which would be more suited to a Maccies drive through than a music awards ceremony.


There you have it, my four standout looks of the VMAs. Who stood out for you?
