Katy Perry and rapper Riff Raff made quite the splash on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (August 24) at The Forum in Los Angeles.
In what most people immediately recognized as a throwback to the now iconic matching denim ensembles that then-couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore to the 2001 American Music Awards, the pair rocked seriously blinged out Atelier Versace numbers.
There is going to be a lot of hate thrown at these looks, because let’s be honest: they are hideous, but a good sense of humor goes a really long way on the red carpet, and we all know Katy loves a good costume, so why not have a little fun?
And from the chin up, Katy looks divine. Glossy hair, red lips, winged eyeliner: It’s classic glamour at its best.
