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.

Jena Malone: Thankfully, Jena has a world tour with ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ to contend with, because this by her standards is forgettable. It’s a sweet Alaia dress but way too tame for Jena.

Jourdan Dunn: Well, at least someone understood what the EMAs is all about. Slashed to the navel and cut to the upper thigh, this V-neck LWD styled with a silver… let’s call it a bandeau, and complementary jewels is very much in the spirit of what this event was supposed to be about. Sadly, not everyone got the memo.

    Jourdan is wearing Mugler. It looked better in the runway imo.

    Alesha looks so wonderful! I love that dress and those shoes are killer!! And her makeup is so so hot. The others are meh.

    Alesha Dixon is my favorite because all the others are meh. This used to be such a great even, for fashion and music, now it’s become quite tasteless and boring.

    Ariana’s copy cat dress borders on insulting. I like the colours in Alesha’s look but can’t say anyone here looks good or event appropriate.

    Ariana looks perfect here

    Does anyone know what are Alesha’s shoes? p.s. Jourdan EAT!!! Lord!!

      Alesha’s shoes are Sophia Webster

  7. Alina November 10, 2014 at 6:39 am #

    Don’t like any of these.

    Don’t really like any of these looks. Alesha looks nice but not event appropriate. Such a disappointing red carpet.

      +2 I think Jourdan looks trashy. Too much skin showing.

    Jena looks the best but it’s a bit conservative for the event. Jourdan needs a sandwich as per usual and Ariana letting her weave down doesn’t save the poor fitting dress.

    Wow, ariana let her hair down. Thats gold.

    On the other hand, her dress is dull, her hair looks kinda dry, but at least she finally does something that looks like her age.

    Alesha Dixon is def the best.

    Wait whut? Ariana let her hair down. Save the date.

    Such a bizarre choice for the event but that is a magnificent shirt dress, perhaps the only time the word magnificent can be used to describe a shirt dress.

    And Ariana Grande, wow, she’s been in the spotlight for a while, she’s successful and she looks like she’s trying her best to look good, so someone PLEASE refer her to a real stylist. That is a seriously D-list look. And the terracotta make-up is just aging and dated and sad.

    Well, Jordan of the bunch, of course.

    • Nat39 November 10, 2014 at 3:03 am #

      but yeah this is bad, disappointing event.

  14. Marcel November 10, 2014 at 12:43 am #

    Ariana being the most obnoxious and talentless newcomer on the stage. Alesha has the best look.

  15. Valissa November 10, 2014 at 12:32 am #

    I’m kind of grateful that Ariana wore a more mature and refined dress. It’s no hit but she doesn’t look like a teenage stripper and that’s a step in the right direction.
    I like Jourdan considering the event. Everyone else is forgettable

    Idk, this is a music awards show, not the Oscars. Alesha Dixon, def the best of this bunch and perfect for the event imo.

  18. Christine November 10, 2014 at 12:21 am #

    Alexa’s look is nice but not for this event. The rest is horrid and dull

  19. Pedro November 10, 2014 at 12:10 am #

    Alexa looks AMAZING but not for the EMA!

    Everybody else looks terrible
