2019 MTV Video Music Awards Wrap-up

The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards took place this evening(August 26th) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. To see all of the red carpet looks, click HERE and continue below for the wrap-up.

Lil Nas X performed and walked a winner. I love how he takes fashion risks and he seemingly channeled Prince wearing this custom CHRISTIAN COWAN look which I dig.

Taylor Swift who also performed at the event, wore a VERSACE multi-colored, Swarovski beaded blazer, with an pink strapless beaded romper underneath and black velvet thigh-high Swarovski beaded boots. I actually like this and prefer it over her last Versace look.

Rick Ross was head to toe in GUCCI X DAPPER DAN and he looked cool as can be. His look is a little off-season but it is a but chilly here.

Gigi Hadid wore a TOM FORD ensemble which featured a strapless corset top and shiny trousers. The colors doesn't really work on her but she looked great. EF COLLECTION earrings and side parted waves rounded out her look.

Bella Hadid showed off her toned abs in a sexy, ruched halter dress, with a cutout waist by CHARLOTTE KNOWLES. A ponytail with side swept bangs and transparent sandals finished up her look.

H.E.R. literally walked the carpet with a snake around her neck wearing a VALENTINO FALL 2019 green floral jumpsuit. The snake was probably homage to Britney's VMA snake moment whatever the case, dislike snakes but I like the jumpsuit.

Adriana Lima presented wearing a SALLY LAPOINTE RESORT 2020 long sleeve emerald metallic mesh dress and the matching bodysuit underneath. The embellished sandals doesn't work here and I wish the dress gazed the floor. Emerald stone earrings, and wet side parted waves rounded out her look. 

Monica wore a multi colored & printed LIBERTINE SPRING 2019 long side split dress, which she accessorized with a red leather beret and a EMM KUO clutch. The clutch feels a little out of split, as it doesn't coordinate with the dress & hat.

Alison Brie presented in a semi-sheer, black sequin embellished mini dress by ELIE SAAB. The dress works for the occasion but the neckline is too wide and a bit unflattering. Overall, I am not feeling this. GUISEPPE ZANOTTI sandals and a wavy hairstyle finished up her look.

Heidi Klum was on hand wearing a NEDO BY NEDRET TACIROGLU FALL 201 heart cutout, black sequin mini dress, with a draped panel. I almost thought this was Saint Laurent as there is a similar dress in the fashion house Fall 2019 Collection. The dress looks great on the model but on Heidi, it is way too tight and her hair should have been completely off-the-shoulders.

Normani who did her first solo performance at the awards, wore a sexy NICOLAS JEBRAN FALL 2019 colorful sequin, cutout dress. I am not crazy about the hair, a pulled back, style would have been ideal. Also the silver hoops don't belong here, nor does the sandals.

Keke Palmer who is also celebrating her birthday, wore a YOUSEF AL JASMI long sleeve yellow beaded gown with an bodysuit underneath for coverage. I wish the bodysuit wasn't visible but this color is divine on her. One of her best looks. GUISEPPE ZANOTTI gold platform sandals, DAVID YURMAN studs and a flawless beauty look rounded out her look.

FKA Twigs wore a custom ED MARLER piece. The designer posted her look on his instagram without the shawl or wrap around her shoulders and I think the dress works so much better without it. You can see HERE. Also a pinned up-do would have been ideal.
