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

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?

    We have to remember she doesn’t get this much of big invites because, despite her show being so good and her acting absolutely incredible, her show airs on MTV so people tend to underestimate her so she needs moments like this. I definitely thinks she looks absolutely wonderful!

      Your point makes perfect sense, and I hadn’t thought of it like that. But–I still think that regardless of said point, she and anyone for that matter, who is invited to any event, needs to dress appropriately to the event, or else they definitely run the risk of looking out of place. Which clearly she does. However, I will admit, were I in her shoes, and I only had possibly one opportunity to wear Zac Posen or some tacky VMA getup, I’d probably go for the Posen too. Critics be damned.

        Hahaha, you’d be making a great choice! I would like to see both, her and Holland Roden, being invited to big red carpet events, on magazine covers and get more attention in front rows, as they have been before, so we can see how they keep doing great things as they have so far.

    The clutch washes out the gown, not a fan.

    It isn’t a terrible look but not the right look for the event.

    I think most of the posters here forget that both Reed and Roden have no chance of being invited to something big and more “event appropriate” right now (even if their show is pretty good and had it been on any other network would be getting more “serious” attention), so because this is as big as it gets for Crystal and she looks fabulous, thumbs up from me.

      Agree, thumbs up from me for the effort, needed a little more attitude.

    She looks more-or-less okay, but this is definitely not a look for VMAs.

  6. Alina August 26, 2013 at 07:15 #

    This would’ve worked at the Emmys.

    Did she get the wrong invitation by accident? Lol besides being event-inappropriate, the clutch is all wrong and her posture’s not great.

    Not liking the clutch and right dress for wrong event

    One note is a fair assessment.

    Maybe it’s just me but a lot of Zac Posen’s gowns are the same, expected, similar and this is no different.

    The clutch is a big win.

    Not for the VMAs, though I appreciate the clutch-it looks great with the dress. And the dress is beautiful, as is she. But it just feels so out of place, like it’s just a waste. Too bad, b/c I love me a Zac Posen moment on the RC.

    Clearly wrong for the event.

    This is not the Golden Globes, girl go home and change.
