Chanel Iman In Balmain – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Chanel Iman In Balmain - 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Chanel Iman attended the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards held at The Forum on Sunday (August 24) in Inglewood, California alongside fellow model-in-black Jourdan Dunn.

Like Jourdan, Chanel also wore Balmain selecting a heavy leather woven dress from the Fall 2014 collection.

I have just one question: what measures must one take to not perspire profusely in such a frock on a sunny day?

Aside from that, Chanel doesn’t strike me as a Balmain girl.

Had Jourdan not already worn a similar yellow sleeveless version of this Balmain frock, I would’ve suggested that they swap looks.

Large hooped onyx earrings and Casadei black leather ‘Cage’ sandals with gold hardware and the signature Blade heel rounded out her look.

    Ok, re-run or not, she looks awesome on that! Fantastic!

    It looks like it is overwhelming her. The dress is wearing her, not the other way around.

    The detailing in this dress is perfection. I would have preferred this on Beyonce. The right dress, the wrong model.

    This is heavy and restricting, she looks stiff and uncomfortable.

    this WOULD have been a great kind of dress for Beyonce instead of the bland choice.

    The dress is fierce but this is not a good look for tonight.

    Too heavy for LA in the summer. Agree about the sweating question FC! Iman’s face looks beautiful as usual, but I can’t get past the fact that this dress is being worn to the wrong event.

    I actually like the styling of the dress but I’m not buying what she is selling. She looks uncomfortable and it’s way too heavy for the season.

    IMO, she looks just OK, even if I’m sweating just by looking at her.

    I think she looks great! But also, miserably hot. Poor her?

    Actually, we’re having surprisingly moderate temperatures in LA this summer. Chances are it was around 75° F / 24° C at the time of this shot, so it was warm but not sweltering.

    I like this look, but I wish she had ditched the earring and gone with a lush ponytail or topknot and sandals that didn’t repeat the bondage pattern of the dress.

    Season appropriateness aside, I think she looks fierce in this. Not many people could pull it off but she did and she looks amazing!
