I expected drama and I expected daring outfits from the MTV VMA Awards after writing a blog post about the most memborable outfits ever, and I wasn’t disappointed by the 2015 ceremony.
With Miley Cyrus as the host, the other celebrities knew they had to get creative with their outfits if they wanted to make an impact. At the MTV awards, everyone dresses to get noticed – there is absolutely no room for being shy at this event or you’ll fade into the background and celebs hate being ignored.
The show was filmed live but with a five second display in case host Miley Cyrus (above) said something too risque and TV producers could stop it before it got on air. That didn’t need to happen in the end, although there were 3 memorable moments that stuck in my head (which I’ve written about at the end of this blog post). First, let’s have a look at the best dressed:
I love the feathers on her plunge neck black maxi dress!
Nicki and Taylor Swift had a fight before the event about nominations for Best Music Videos, but they made up on stage to open the show in red feathers. Afterwards, she looked amazing in a gold maxi dress.
Britney’s back! A gold dress really suits her.
With heavy kohl around her eyes, Taylor was completely out of her make-up comfort zone. Also, she normally wears mini dresses to show off her legs so the co-ordinates were a brave move for her. What do you think?
Taylor Swift with Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge
The supermodels all star in Taylor’s Bad Blood video so had to join her as she won. What’s a model to wear to an awards? A maxi dress of course!
Cara can often be a bit of a tomboy on the red carpet but this mini dress looks cute on her. What do you think?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Did Kim and Kanye co-ordinate their outfits? That’s a killer way to stand out – as it’s twice as attention grabbing. Kanye won the night’s ultimate honour – the Michael Jackson video vanguard (like a lifetime achievement award).
Kris, Kourtney and Kylie Kardashian
More Kardashians turned up to support Kanye and also Kylie’s boyfriend Tyga. I like Kourtney’s pink jumpsuit – it was the only jumpsuit of the night.
Music video sensation turned We are Your Friends actress Emily Ratajowski took gold detail to a new level. I love her over-the knee boots!
Sometimes you just can’t fault a black maxi dress. Selena Gomez stood out because of her dress’s simplicity in comparison to everyone else’s attention-grabbing outfits.
Who do you think looked the best? And did you know that:
(1) Justin Bieber burst into tears as he collected his award
(2) There was twerking, but not from Miley. Rebel Wilson and Nicki Minaj were hilarious.
(3) After collecting his award, Kanye announced he wanted to run for President in 2020!
What did you think of the night? I’m a bit sad that it’s over until next year!
