2014 MTV VMAs...The best and worst of the red carpet

Posted on August 25 2014

The MTV Video Music Awards are known for having one of the wildest red carpets of any of the awards shows, and last night was no exception.
We weigh in on who looked great (so many pants!), who could've looked better (so many prints...), and who should fire their stylist immediately (hint: it's Amber Rose).




1. I'm pretty sure Gwen Stefani stopped aging 15 years ago. She looks amazing in this two piece pink and black emsemble. Everything about this look works - it's fun, age appropriate (we're looking at you, J.Lo), and accessorized perfectly. When it comes to rocking the MTV red carpet, Gwen knows exactly what she's doing.

2. A year after the performance that rocked social media at the 2013 VMAs, we got a toned down Miley Cyrus on the red carpet last night. Her crop top and pant look is almost demure compared to what she usually wears, and the metallic shoe gives just the right amount of pop. We like this Miley. Keep it up, girl!

3. Jordin Sparks looked so classy in this all white outfit. It's sexy without revealing too much and she looks super confident in it. You can always tell when a girl just knows she looks good.


4. Kendall and Kylie Jenner gave us a 2-for-1 as far as best dressed for last night. Both of these girls looked amazing in head to toe black.
Kendall looked sleek in a sheer top and high-waisted pants, while Kylie had this 1940s boudoir thing going on. The simple accessories
gave both of these looks just the right amount of glamour.




1. Chloë Grace Moretz is the most adorable thing, but this look seems more appropriate for a day at the office and not a red carpet. We still love you, Chloë! Maybe let loose a little more next time though.

2. Oh, Taylor Swift. While we can appreciate you wanting to ditch the sparkly princess look you normally gravitate towards, this (what can only be described as a) bodysuit is just NOT working. The letters, the cut, it's just all wrong. We can't help thinking you look like a cross between an ice skater and grandma's couch. Your legs look insane though. So there's that. Shake it off.

3. Tony the Tiger has finally found his dream girl in Charli XCX. We know the MTV red carpet is the place to take a risk, but this look is just not grrrrr-eat.

4. Kim Kardashian....tsk, tsk, tsk. Love or hate the Kardashians, they are known for knowing how to dress. This look just makes us sad. While we don't exactly hate the dress, Kim just looks so uncomfortable in it. The shoes are cutting her off at exactly the wrong spot, and her hair is screaming, "brush me!" It doesn't happen often, but Kim missed the mark this time.




1. Amber Rose was practically naked last night, and we couldn't help but remember the time Rose McGowan showed up practically naked to the VMAs in 1998. While Amber is a little more covered than Rose was, this isn't a look that ever needed to be repeated.

2. The Britney Spears/Justin Timberlake denim on denim on denim is probably one of the most iconic couple looks, well, ever. And while we do love most of the crazy red carpet looks Katy Perry is known for, this just seems like a bad cover song. When the original is just so perfect, why bother trying to copy it?


Until next year...keep dancing.

    Yes kim!

  • Kassie: August 31, 2014

    Charli XCX is always harboring her inner 90’s.. I think she can pull it off.

    What is Katy Perry thinking?!

    Oh and Blue Ivy just wins the VMA’s. Too adorable.

  • Julianne: August 28, 2014

    Love Miley.. and Kim! Both looked great

  • Courtney: August 28, 2014

    the jenners ALWAYS blow me away with their beauty!

    ..and i liked kim’s dress!

  • Lisa: August 27, 2014

    Love Gwen always <3, Kendall and Kylie both were so perfect, and Katy.. why did you have to wear that!????

  • Megan: August 26, 2014

    Shoot me I like Kim’s dress!
    And don’t get me out of Taylor Swift, she’s annoying and dresses weird !
    But Blu Ivy stole the show in my opinion!!

  • kathy: August 26, 2014

    jordan sparks looked amazing! kim k should’ve stayed home and everyone always raves about kendall and she did look great but kylie is the most beautiful out of the whole bunch of them!

  • Kate : August 26, 2014

    to be honest, I liked Kim’s dress, I thought the beaded fabric looked really sharp! She does need some detangler in that hair tho!
    Kendall always looks amazing and chic!!

    Not only did TSwift look like a wacko; watching her dance in her seat during the show also makes me uncomfortable lol

  • Victoria : August 26, 2014

    I think Kendall and Kylie KILLED it! They always are on the forefront of fashion, and at such a young age! I always anticipate to see what they are going to wear!
    Great job ladies!

  • Rachel: August 26, 2014

    Personally, I think Blue was the best dressed of the night! :)

  • Rachel: August 26, 2014

    I think the Jenners need to break away from that Kardashian name asap. They are so fab. Kendall & Kylie can do no wrong. But, Kim…YIKES! Kanye, let you outta the house like that? Really?

  • Chelsea: August 25, 2014

    Great recap… there were so many bad dressers this year
    Kendall looks so chic!
    Kim & Taylor shouldn’t have left the house last night!

  • Shaye: August 25, 2014

    You really hit all these on the head. I hate to love the Jenner’s but they look so great. As for Katy Perry, she needs to stop immediately— no one should ever compete with Justin & Britney!

  • nicolette: August 25, 2014

    Gwen and Kendall are my fav dressed!

  • dee: August 25, 2014

    Kendall looks fab
    Taylor Swift looks absolutely terrible

  • Nik: August 25, 2014
