2018 MTV VMAs Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

2018 MTV VMAs Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Not to let the girls completely take over the red — well, pink — carpet at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City, the guys showed up to the party, as well.

Asher Angel: It’s hard to believe Asher’s only 15, when he has such a cool command of style as seen in this Dior Men patterned suit.

Maluma: White, satiny looks are tricky — on both males and females. But, there’s an “E” for effort to be given out for this Dolce & Gabbana suit and red-metallic Saint Laurent rocker boots.

Algee Smith: With this decorative athleisure aesthetic, there would be no missing Algee in his Moschino tracksuit with gold rope embellishment artfully construed in a semi-skeleton motif.

Nicki Minaj In Off-White – 2018 MTV VMAs

Nicki Minaj In Off-White - 2018 MTV VMAs

Nicki Minaj came to the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City in a bathing suit.

Well, the bootysuit, ahem bodysuit, was topped off with a sheer slip affair that really served no purpose except to possibly act as a tripping hazard.

Not even the excuse of the VMAs raucous, racy dress code can come to the defense of this Off-White Fall 2018 look — and those impossibly long pigtail extensions.

Chloe Bailey & Halle Bailey In Iris van Herpen Haute Couture – 2018 MTV VMAs

Chloe Bailey & Halle Bailey In Iris van Herpen Couture - 2018 MTV VMAs

Chloe Bailey and Halle Bailey were as coordinated as ever at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City.

You may recognize the signature swirly, engineered lines of boundaries-pushing designer Iris van Herpen in these two designs.

And, even though Chloe’s hails from the Fall 2017 Haute Couture collection and Halle’s from the Spring 2018 Haute Couture collection, you’d never know given how well they play off of each other.

Halle completed her look with Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Penelope’ sandals.

If I had to choose one, Chloe’s gown — despite the underboob — held a certain fascination with the undulating, sculptural effect through the bodice and the sleeves.

Millie Bobby Brown In Rosie Assoulin – 2018 MTV VMAs

Millie Bobby Brown In Rosie Assoulin - 218 MTV VMAs

Millie Bobby Brown was her classic-cool self at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City.

Even though her Rosie Assoulin Fall 2018 ensemble was all black, it did not fall into one-note territory thanks to its intriguing spin on a jumpsuit silhouette.

I love how this design incorporates elements of menswear and tuxedo dressing with a flourish of girlish femininity in the tulle shoulder poufs and slice of midriff.

It’s right in line with the ‘Stranger Things’ starlet’s aesthetic that’s often simultaneously mature yet sassy in its own right.

Blake Lively In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2018 MTV VMAs

Blake Lively In Ralph & Russo Couture - 2018 MTV VMAs

Blake Lively has recently left no pantsuit unturned with her promo tour for ‘A Simple Favor’. And, she continued in similar form tonight (August 20) at the 2018 MTV VMAs in New York City.

I’m sure this Ralph & Russo Fall 2018 Couture ensemble was quite stunning in movement with the accordion trousers acting in flowing cascade alongside her.

However, standing still, it was a bit more like a puddle beneath her feet.

With her tailored blazer and button-down blouse, I do think it’s safe to say she wins the prize for the least amount of skin showing on one of fashion’s most freewheeling nights — and, for that, she stood out in classic form.

Rita Ora In Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture – 2018 MTV VMAs

Rita Ora would not be missed at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday (August 20) in New York City.

As I can already imagine the eyes rolling at her Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2018 Haute Couture creation, I will offer up some measure of defense for it.

1. I’m as fatigued with sheer as the next person, but the squiggles of this gown kinda offer a new playful, artsy component.

2. She fully committed to wearing the look and has not let it wear her.

3. As this is the VMAs, these types of entrances are much to be expected and perhaps excused with a haute hall pass.

Lorraine Schwartz jewels — and bejeweled eye makeup — completed the look.
