Rita Ora In Donna Karan Atelier – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Rita Ora In Donna Karan Atelier - 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Rita Ora, always the chameleon, once again played a different fashion tune at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA, hosted at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (August 24).

The songstress, who performs ‘Black Widow’ with Iggy Azalea tonight, was the ultimate lady in red, arriving in a Donna Karan Atelier crimson silk gown.

Bringing the boudoir to the red carpet, she glided around in the negligee-inspired number that featured no shortage of glossy fabric that followed in a train behind her.

Yet, even with the abundance of fabric, skin was still the name of Rita’s style game, given that deep plunge neckline, backless silhouette, and hip-grazing slit.

Her left leg was most certainly her plus-one for the evening.

Perched haphazardly on the boundaries of bad taste—even for the VMAs—she embellished the look further with a diamond choker necklace, high-impact lashes and a ruby-red lip, not to mention her white-blonde, slicked-back ’do.

Perhaps the goal was to try and glamorize the look with the styling.

Should she have stayed in the bedroom?

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.

Demi Lovato In Lanvin – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Demi Lovato was a striking lady in red on the red carpet of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (August 24) at The Forum in Los Angeles.

The spunky singer wore a long-sleeved Lanvin gown in a stunning red that looked beautiful with her skintone and showed off plenty of her assets.

She paired the dress with a Charlotte Olympia clutch in a matching red hue, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and MARINA B earrings and a Repossi ear cuff.

A sideswept ‘do that showed off her half-buzz, radiant skin, matte red lips and lush lashes were the perfect representation of Demi’s personal brand of ladylike punk.

Gwen Stefani In L.A.M.B. – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Gwen Stefani also joined the celeb set at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA, held at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (August 24).

The entertainer and ‘The Voice’ judge wore a self-designed L.A.M.B. ensemble that featured a structured bustier-inspired top and skinny pants in a high-octane shade of pink with black accents.

The party was definitely in the front of this little two-tone number, as catching a glimpse of Gwen from the back delivered a completely different, more subdued effect.

She rolled her platinum locks into a slightly retro twist on one side, but that fuchsia-pink lip was 100 percent modern.

Statement-making Lorraine Schwartz jewels and black sheer-lace pumps served to provide even more punch for this pop-star look.

Kim Kardashian was on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (August 24), where she was supporting her nominee-husband Kanye West.

Also one of the evening’s presenters, the reality star surely suffered no shortage of stares in her attention-grabbing Resort 2015 number from one of her currently favoured design houses, Balmain.

The heavily beaded mini-dress featured an interesting cape-like shape. Yet, even the leggy nature of the look plus all that graphic red and black patterning couldn’t detract from the focal point of that plunge.

She styled the look with Balmain black woven cage shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, not to mention bombshell waves and a sultry nude lip.

Lorde In Chanel – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

As is her habit, Lorde avoided the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (August 24) at The Forum in Los Angeles, and went straight into the show.

But thanks to the singer’s Instagram feed, we were able to see that she’s rocking a long velvet jumpsuit from Chanel’s Fall 2014 collection.

This look is perfectly in line with Lorde’s dark and mysterious sense of fashion, and her natural curls blown out smooth and a bold purple lip complete her glamorous but dark ensemble.
