Ariana Grande In Kenley Collins – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Ariana Grande In Kenley Collins - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Ariana Grande turned up the charm on the red carpet of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, hosted on Sunday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The young singer was adorable in a flirty little party frock from former ‘Project Runway’ star, Kenley Collins. You cannot miss the designer’s vintage-girly aesthetic in this floral-print, pouf-sleeve mini-dress that had Ariana’s own stems on full display.

The ubiquitous, of-the-moment white pumps made another appearance, but added a near-conservative layer to this look rather than a dose of edge, as did her long half-up, half-down locks and rose-toned lippie.

Was Ariana’s blooming entrance a breath of fresh air for you, among the sultrier, expected VMAs exits?

    I like the statement made by the ladylike print but something about the cut, maybe the waistline, is not so flattering.

    Also, the makeup is bad, the eyebrows are strange.

    But I applaud her for not going to the obvious black leather look for this awards shows.

    She is a stunning girl, but I always find something a bit off about her expression and/or makeup. Maybe it is the brows? I dunno. Anyway, she looks pretty and all, but this just doesn’t work for me in this context. A little too twee, esp. for the VMAs.

    Boring.

    The print looks very similar to the spring 2013 Carolina Herrera print that Lucy Lu wore to the Emmy’s last year. It’s off putting.

      I though it to be Carolina Herrera at first, but the cut gave it away.

      She looks like she grew out of this dress, or I guess it could be her baby-doll image.
      Side note: she should sit down with her makeup artist and find a color for her eyebrows that would match her coloring, because right now they are absolutely grey.

    The white pumps kill the look for me. They give it a daytime, tea party vibe, quite unsuited to the VMAs. Dressy, fun sandals would have been nice.

      I agree; the right pair of footwear would have taken this outfit to a whole new level. Eyebrows aside, I rather like the make up.

    Cute but forgettable.

    I loved this at first sight, but the fabric and the cut of the dress are so heavy that it works against the flowery airiness of the look. Still okay.
