VMAS 2014: Red Carpet Review.

I'm not normally one to review fashion on the red carpet or anywhere else for that matter but I saw so many beautiful dresses and outfits from this year's VMAS that I just had to review my favourites. This time around there seemed to be a simple theme of red and silver going on and A LOT of skin showing. You go, girls!

To start off with:


Can we just talk about how good Jennifer Lopez looks at 45, please? She totally rocks this stunning Charbel Zoe, cut-out gown which comes with a bold high slit with shows off her toned figure.  She finishes off the look with Jimmy Choo shoes, a matching Thalé Blanc silver clutch and Normal Silverman rings and earrings proving that no matter what age you are, if you've got it.. flaunt it.

Cutest couple award definitely has to go to Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo. Jordin is so beautiful in a plunging white dress while Jason wears a matching white suit with Gentleman Collection by David Thomas and Jason of Beverly Hills jewellery. Jason was also nominated twice for Best Pop Video and Best Choreography for his hit song Talk Dirty


LGBT icon and Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox wore a show stopping dress from her friend Marc Bouwer which gave the actress the perfect opportunity to show off her figure.


Katy Perry always comes up with new, mad ways to throw everyone off their game. The singer showed up with rapper, Riff Raff, both in matching patchwork denim custom-made Versace outfits in homage to that unforgettable moment when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore a denim-on-denim ensemble back in 2001. Hilarious but she pulled it off so well. 

The rapper Iggy Azalea down the cut-out route by wearing a silver Versace dress with her hair slicked back perfectly. She also performed her new single Black Widow with Rita Ora.

Speaking of Rita Ora, the singer pulled an Angelina Jolie in a sexy thigh high slitted Donna Karan Atelier negligee-inspired dress as she flaunted her curves. Channelling a Jessica Rabbit-esque (sans the red hair) look, she catwalked the red carpet in this silk charmeuse outfit topped off with a diamond encrusted Lorraine Schwartz choker and strapless heels.


Sporting an adorable baby bump, Kelly Rowland looked amazing and kept it simple in this elegant Kaufman Franco gown paired with Jimmy Choo shoes. Her Lorraine Schwartz jewellery shone in the sun, setting off her whole look.


Solange Knowles looked badass in an sparkly, oversized jacket and tuxedo pants from the H&M Studio Collection. Bare underneath, Solange's jacket scooped low enough to expose a little of her cleavage. With big, Diana Ross style hair and black heeled sandals, Solange looked just fabulous in a glamorous, rocker chic way.


All eyes were on Queen B as she walked the red carpet in a black, lacy, Nicolas Jebran dress with dazzling, statement earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. She strategically hid parts of her body but the risqué cut outs and gemometric lines bared enough to show off her body and the fact she clearly had no underwear on. But this isn't the only look she had for the night..


It literally became the Beyoncé show as she performed her 15 minute medley of songs from her self-titled album in a bejewelled, mosasic Tom Ford bodysuit. It clung to her body and showed off all her assets.. quite literally. She had the whole room in her hands as she danced and sung her heart out, hitting every note perfectly despite the heavily choreographed dances.

Queen B just doesn't stop slaying! After her epic show and receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award from her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy, she appeared backstage in a silky, maroon, Zuhair Murad dress which had a daring side panel which reveal the singer went commando again! The dress hugged her curves and made her look unbelievable as she stood in front the photographers in the pressroom, smiling with her trophies. Alongside the Video Vanguard Award, she also received awards from the Best Cinematography, Best Video With a Social Message and Best Collaboration categories.

To quote Lady Gaga: boys, boys, boys, we love them!
