Jourdan Dunn In Donna Karan – 2014 MTV EMAs

Jourdan Dunn In Donna Karan - 2014 MTV EMAs

Jourdan Dunn was spotted posing backstage at the 2014 MTV EMAs held at The Hydro on Sunday (November 9) in Glasgow, Scotland following her red carpet appearance.

The model did her upmost to inject some much-needed glamour into this lacklustre event wearing a Donna Karan Fall 2014 gown.

Mission accomplished.

Oozing plenty of glamour with more than a hint of sex appeal, the V-neck double-slit devore halter gown was able to wake me from my peaceful slumber.

This could’ve gone horribly wrong. Remember Iggy Azalea in her double-slit gown from this same event back in 2013?

Thankfully, Jourdan has the poise to carry such a gown without taking it to Tackyville, USA.

2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

The MTV EMAs 2014 took place at The Hydro on Sunday (November 9) in Glasgow, Scotland. I was expecting to be at least entertained by the red carpet arrivals; sadly it was a total bust. Perhaps they could can the event for good if this is the best they could muster for the red carpet.

Ariana Grande: Finally letting her hair down – literally, not metaphorically – the singer showed a more grown-up side to her red carpet dressing. Her black Cristiano Burani gown with cut-outs is basically a copy of a Michael Kors Spring 2013 gown which was much loved by Alicia Keys and Myleene Klass.

Alesha Dixon: Even with its decorative detailing, this Mary Katrantzou ‘Oriane’ shirt dress doesn’t feel glam enough for an awards ceremony. Taking the event out of the equation, I simply adore this bold look styled with fierce Sophia Webster ‘Mila’ cage sandals and a violet lip to die for.

Li Yuchun In Lanvin & Versace – MTV EMAs 2013

Li Yuchun In Lanvin & Versace - MTV EMAsLi Yuchun, aka Chris Lee, snagged the Best Worldwide Act award at the 2013 MTV EMAs at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The Chinese mega-star maintained her reputation for her unique, androgynous style with last night’s garb. She was once again in the no-gown-zone, as she walked on the wilder side with a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2013 leopard embellished coat, accented with floral appliqué.

Under the animal print, she packed on the sequins with a shiny black blazer, outlined in gold trim, from the Versace Resort 2014 collection, which she matched to a pair of black leather-look shorts and a white collar dress shirt.

A sparkling, star-shaped necklace was a fitting accoutrement for this pop singer and actress, whereas black thigh-high, flat Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy boots completed the spirited sartorial entrance that was equal parts rocker-boy and rebel-girl.

If anyone can handle this strong, statement look, it’s Li. Tough-luxe or just too much?

Jared Leto In Saint Laurent – MTV EMAs 2013

Jared Leto In Saint Laurent - MTV EMAs 2013Jared Leto was also at the 2013 MTV EMAs, hosted last night at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The entertainer and his 30 Seconds to Mars band mates accepted the Best Alternative award during the show—and Jared definitely dressed for the occasion.

Donning a Saint Laurent Fall 2013 ensemble, he brought the runway to the Europe Music Awards stage. He was basically a mirror image of the model with his long-haired, bad-boy rocker look.

But he didn’t stop at the red blazer, skinny leather pants and long, leopard burnout scarf. He added his own signature grunge spin by tying a plaid shirt around his waist and tromping out a pair of unzipped combat-style Zadig & Voltaire ‘Joe’ boots.

Style-forward and subversive at the same time; would you agree?

Laura Whitmore In Fyodor Golan & Louise Roe In Mara Hoffman – 2013 MTV EMAs

Laura Whitmore In Fyodor Golan & Louise Roe In Mara Hoffman - 2013 MTV EMAs

Laura Whitmore and Louise Roe were the presenters of the red carpet event prior to the MTV EMAs yesterday evening held at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The ladies gave us two very different looks.

Laura Whitmore: The Irish presenter opted for a white satin structural Fyodor Golan Fall 2013 strapless mini with a peplum waist and black embroidery, which she styled with Kurt Geiger shoes. While the runway version would’ve been impractical for her job, it’s much preferred over her red carpet version.

Louise Roe: The LA-based, UK-born presenter opted for a more colourful look which was more to my liking, despite this Mara Hoffman Spring 2014 sweetheart-neckline printed top and skirt feeling very much season inappropriate. Vamping up the look with kohl-rimmed eyes, she accessorized with a gold cuff and gold Jimmy Choo sandals.

Rita Ora In Calvin Klein Collection – 2013 MTV EMAs

Rita Ora In Calvin Klein Collection - 2013 MTV EMAs

Rita Ora didn’t walk the red carpet for the MTV EMAs 2013, but she was spotted in the press room having handed the Best Hip Hop Award to Eminem during the event, held at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands on Sunday.

Like Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding, the singer wore a revealing black dress courtesy of Calvin Klein Collection.

Her black silk halter-neck dress with cut-outs and a daring thigh-high slit (daring by CK’s standard; not so much for this event) was styled with silver rings on her right hand, gold accessories including two caps on her teeth, and of course her standard red lip.

The platinum wig is making her look like a Marilyn Monroe tribute act. Not a fan.
