Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Sarah Hyland In Marchesa - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

‘Vampire Academy’ starlet Sarah Hyland took a dramatic turn on the red carpet, joining co-star Zoey Deutch at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Sarah sent some mixed messages in her Marchesa Spring 2013 red-and-gold tulle high-low gown—I was picking up an extravagant India-inspired flavour, some medieval princess edge and a dash of Wonder Woman.

Strappy black Casadei sandals seemed out of place when they could have so easily been gold to go with that glittery metallic Marchesa clutch.

Renaissance super-girl aside, I found this look to be overwhelming for the young actress. Short of ripping off those heavy layers, she could’ve had so much more lighthearted fun at MTV’s big night.

Shailene Woodley In Emilio Pucci - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Shailene Woodley also showed up to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Like so many PYTs, ‘The Spectacular Now’ actress flaunted her toned and tanned midriff in an Emilio Pucci Resort 2014 black cropped top and swirly, purple patterned V skirt.

She simplified the separates, flinging aside the lookbook’s belt, cuffs and gladiator-esque sandals for a far more pared-down approach that included plain black Casadei pumps.

Freshly sheered locks, cut in preparation for her new film, ‘The Fault In Our Stars,’ were swept back into a semi-pompadour style, putting the MTV in this red-carpet moment.

Do you like her straightforward interpretation?

Erin Wasson In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Erin Wasson bared all (well, nearly all) when taking to the red carpet for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday evening.

Turning to Alexandre Vauthier for her daring red carpet look, she donned a sheer black dress with a bandeau-style bikini from the designers Fall 2013 Couture collection.

It’s ironic that the most covered part of this look is her head as she styled her risqué frock with a black turban.

This look is supposed to be sexy, but I can’t find an ouch of sex appeal within this look.

To be honest, I find it quite boring. She tried way too hard to garner attention.

Crystal Reed In ZAC Zac Posen Resort – 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Crystal Reed also left the over-the-top irreverence in the closet, as she posed at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday.

The ‘Teen Wolf’ actress put the red in this red carpet with a sculpted, strapless ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2014 peplum gown that was nothing if not plenty glamorous, especially with her slicked-back ’do and dainty Neil Lane jewels.

Adding a slightly more raucous note was a spirited crimson leopard-print Valentino clutch. Even so, Crystal couldn’t steal all the thunder from co-star Holland Roden’s daring, dynamite entrance.

Do you prefer this starlet-in-red’s sophisticated statement, or is it too one-note for the VMAs?

Zoey Deutch In Jonathan Simkhai - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Zoey Deutch hopped on the crop-top train for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Rather appropriately, the ‘Vampire Academy’ actress wore a New York designer for the occasion with separates from Jonathan Simkhai’s Resort 2014 collection.

The bronzed metallic tweed, sculpted bra top and matching skirt, seamed in black piping, brought a sexy-cum-sporty confidence to the proceedings, even if this ensemble could have been easily overlooked among this year’s more memorable VMAs fashion victories.

She accessorized with Fallon earrings and a Jack Vartanian bracelet, whilst sophisticated black, t-strap Saint Laurent ‘Janis’ pumps added a dash of retro flair. Breezy, long brunette waves and rather neutral makeup softened the edges.

Taylor Swift In Hervé Léger - 2013 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs

Taylor Swift was in major temptress mode, as she took to the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night, where she also took home the Moon Man trophy for Best Female Video.

The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer has an awards-show-style M.O. that we’ve nearly memorized, so it was no small surprise to see a slight detour with this vampy vintage-glam vibe.

She was dripping with an air of femme-fatale fierceness, striking a hands-on-hip pose in her plunging Herve Leger black crystallized gown.

The smoldering showdown continued with her retro pin curls, a smokey eye and a crimson-coated pout and nails.

Sparkling statement earrings thankfully took the place of necklace, so as not to compete with that dangerous neckline.
