Halsey In Ashish – 2018 iHeartRADIO MuchMusic Video Awards

A post shared by halsey (@iamhalsey) on

Halsey unleashed some serious star power on the 2018 iHeartRADIO MuchMusic Video Awards stage with a back-to-back performance of her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom hits ‘Sorry’ and ‘Bad at Love.’

Her Ashish Spring 2018 glittering, crystal-embellished dress was a show stopper in itself, but the look was further elevated with a dramatic duster coat which she removed for the second song.

Stuart Weitzman black suede ‘Tippi’ pumps didn’t seem sexy, until paired with Wolford’s Adeline socks for a glossy finish.

Plenty more drama was imbued by her fiery orange and red eye makeup.

Cardi B In Azzi & Osta – 2018 MTV VMAs

Cardi B In Azzi & Osta - 2018 MTV VMAs

Following her red carpet entrance, Cardi B opened the 2018 MTV VMAs by teasing a possible reveal of Kulture, her daughter – only to unwrap a Moon Man statue she was cradling onstage in a blanket.

She did so wearing a custom-made Azzi & Ostas Couture red gown featuring four tails, a cinched waist and exaggerated hips.

I really wanted this to be iconic. Jessica Rabbit iconic, but my nagging and overwhelming thought is, “she’s too short for this dress”.

Factor in the awkwardness of the bodice, and it’s a disappointing no from me.

Rita Ora In Tom Ford – MTV VMA Kickoff Concert

Rita Ora In Tom Ford - MTV VMA Kickoff Concert

Rita Ora performed at the MTV VMA Kickoff Concert on Sunday (August 19) in New York City, which served as a starter to the main event this evening.

The singer has never been afraid of print or colour, and this lime-green Tom Ford jaguar print sequin mini dress, was a glowing – literally – testament to that fact.

I think this is a pretty ballsy look.

iF you’re going to rock a full jaguar print look with crystal slingback pumps and crystal Tom Ford ‘Natalia’ bag, shy and retiring you are not.

It a lot much, but think she pulls it off.

If you’re not going to wear this look during the VMAs weekend, when are you going to wear it?

Rita Ora In Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture – Ascot Racecourse

Rita Ora In Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture - Ascot Racecourse

Rita Ora was the headline act at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday (August 11) in Berkshire, England.

As you know the British entertainer’s style ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous, so where does this Jean Paul Gauliter Spring 2018 Couture look rank?

For me, I love it as a performance look.

The corded blue short set has plenty of character and personality.

The styling – including the fringed boots, contemporary shades and AN Itchy Scratchy Patchy beret – shows me she was determined to put on quite a show.

I would rather this, than another leotard look as a performance look any day.

Rita Ora In Alberta Ferretti Couture – Unicef Summer Gala

Rita Ora In Alberta Ferretti Couture - Unicef Summer Gala

Following her stunning red carpet entrance, Rita Ora changed for her performance at the Unicef Summer Gala on Friday (August 10) in Porto Cervo, Italy.

Now this is what I call a performance piece.

Methinks Florence Welch would’ve had her eye on Rita’s Alberta Ferretti Fall 2018 Couture kaftan, as this fluid, dramatic piece is very much what we’re used to seeing from the red-haired singer.

Rita very much made it her own, swinging out to the music to showcase the volume and fringe work, while using the sequins to reflect the light to dazzle the audience.

Styled with Giuseppe Zanotti silver sandals and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, this caps off two great looks in one night for Rita.

Beyonce Knowles In Valentino Haute Couture & Roberto Cavalli Couture – ‘On The Run II’ Tour Paris

It wasn’t only World Cup fever that gripped Paris this weekend, as the ‘On The Run II’ tour descended onto Paris with Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z.

With a new city comes a new set of looks. You know the drill by now.

What you’ll be excited to learn is that NEITHER look feature short shorts or over-the-knee boots.

Fresh from Haute Couture Week, the singer donned a saffron-yellow Valentino Fall 2018 taffeta gown, which she wore during the ‘Resentment’ part of her performance.

The jaw-dropping look provided the perfect amount of drama to match the mood and the songs.
