Lorde In Monique Lhuillier & Jourden x Nike VaporMax – 2017 MTV VMAs

Lorde attended the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27) , where she performed her new single, ‘Homemade Dynamite’.

Red Carpet: It’s not often Lorde gives us a princess moment, but this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown was one to behold. The look was simple and effortless and one for her hall of fame. It would’ve been easy to slip a quirk in here, as it was the VMAs, but I’m happy she didn’t disrupt the purity of the look.

Performance: Cranking things up several gears; Lorde channeled her inner Bjork for the performance wearing an Jourden x Nike VaporMax silver ruffled mullet dress paired with Nike sweats and sneakers. It may seem like an odd combo, but I will take this as a performance piece when it could’ve so easily – with a few more inches – been a red carpet look.

Yara Shahidi In Zimmermann & Rodarte – 2017 MTV VMAs

Yara Shahidi also opted for two stylish looks for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27), with asymmetry her red carpet M.O.

The first was a sleek Zimmermann gold gown which may have suffered with some creases at the waist, yet she still looked utterly radiant.

This was my favourite of the two.

Her Rodarte Fall 2017 pearl embellished bustier top and skirt possessed plenty after-party appeal. I love how fresh and youthful this look is.

However, looking at both ensembles, my feeling is that her Rodarte look would’ve looked better with her rose-gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Darcie’ sandals.

Thoughts?

Hailey Baldwin In Zuhair Murad Couture & Alexandre Vauthier Couture- 2017 MTV VMAs

With the spirit of JLo coursing through her veins, Hailey Baldwin required two looks for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27) .

Opting for two shock value jumpsuits, I have to say I’m leaning more to the Zuhair Murad Fall 2017 Couture piece styled with Jennifer Fisher earrings.

The embellishments gives the look an air of sexy glamour which we expect at the VMAs, but the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture sheer lace look just screams “attention seeking”.

While some will say, “what’s the difference?” For me it has none of the finesse I see in the first look.

Vanessa Hudgens In Yanina Couture – 2017 MTV VMAs

Vanessa Hudgens’ approach to the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27) was a playful one.

I’m almost certain this Yanina Couture Fall 2016 sheer red dress with feather appliqués won’t gown down too well, but this is the VMAs, and anything goes.

Personally, I love the look for the fun energy Vanessa is omitting, even though I didn’t get the sequin peacock details at the waist, Vanessa sells this look to me from head-to-toe.

Borgioni and Djula diamond rings and Sophia Webster sandals round out the look.

Paris Jackson In Christian Dior – 2017 MTV VMAs

For her last red carpet appearance, Paris Jackson opted to go demure. It was a move that surprised us, and one which many of you disliked.

Cut to a few weeks later at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, and in this Dior Resort 2018 dress the wild child is back.

Yes, we have long grown tired of this sheer trend, but I often judge them on a case by case basis, and this one has me on the fence.

On the one hand her Dior embroidered tulle tarot dress is beautiful, but I wish there was another way to make it work without the Dior nude bralette and panties.

To me, Paris’s styling appears to be thrown together for shock value, rather than enhancing the beauty of the dress.

Hailee Steinfeld In Atelier Versace – 2017 MTV VMAs

Hailee Steinfeld graced the red carpet for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 27) in Inglewood, California.

Showcasing a lotta leg, the young star wore an Atelier Versace Spring 2017 shimmering grey-blue mini-dress; heightened with plenty of sassy appeal via the cut out detail.

Having seen this Greek goddess dress in person, I can confidently say that these pictures aren’t really doing it justice.

Here, the colour doesn’t feel so rich and you can’t see the intricate beadwork across the dress.

Haliee finished her look perfectly with silver Versace heels.

Should she have worn her hair up?
