I have to say, watching the red carpet arrivals at the VMAs, there was nothing which particularly made me say "wow", although there were some looks that I liked, and some looks that I thought looked absolutely awful. Anyway, I'll round up the most notable (I won't say best) looks...
One of my favourites was, actually quite surprisingly, Kim Kardashian, wearing vintage Galliano. See, I'm not usually much of a fan of her style, but I love the way this dress looks on her. It's a bold choice - it's short and low cut - but the classic black colour and simple accessories make it look classy, rather than trashy.
Not going to lie, this diva stole the show. And no, I'm not talking about Beyoncé. Blue Ivy looked like an absolute princess (of the Disney kind) in this gorgeous tulle dress by Mischka Aoki. The coffee colour complimented her skin perfectly, and I love the chunky boots she wore with them. A truly modern fairytale. As for Beyonce herself, I didn't like her dress very much. I liked how the wings continued the fairytale theme, but disliked all the fringing, as well as the icy colour of the dress.
Taylor Hill, meanwhile, wowed in stunning as well as edgy slashed Moschino. A really bold dress, but I think she made it work, and she certainly didn't look boring. Plus, I love anything red or glittery.
Britney Spears was in stark contrast to her awful minidress last year; looking effortlessly classy in black. And the slashed details added a touch of sexy, making the dress more fab than drab.
I know, I'm a sucker for a slip dress, but I love love loved this gorgeous cream number worn Violetta Komyshan, girlfriend of Ansel Elgort. They always look effortlessly elegant, without having to try too hard. I'm not so sure about Ansel's Dior outfit though...
Rita Ora seemed to be continuing to Ansel's take on the gothic trend with this eccentric Marc Jacobs outfit. I'm not usually a fan of Rita's style, but this look is pretty bad-ass. I think the fact that the outfit's almost totally monochromatic saves it from being OTT - a style trap which Rita sometimes falls into, in my opinion. The shoes and the hair are a bit much, but scrap them, and we have ourselves a gothic goddess.
I love a good jumpsuit as an alternative to a dress on a red carpet. There's something about a jumpsuit which screams modern woman, and epitomises the art of power dressing.
Hailey Baldwin's was my favourite jumpsuit, being bold and sheer, but not too sheer. She looked sensational.
I was surprisingly pleased with Amber Rose, wearing Tom Ford. There's something about the trouser suit which makes a woman look extremely sharp and powerful, and her lace bra peeping through looked subtly sexy, not too trashy.
Looks which missed a beat (or several)...
It's not Halloween, Farrah! Nothing "wonderful" whatsoever about this look.
I usually love Naomi's style, but I don't like the colour, fabric or cut of this dress. Part Greek toga, part clam-shell (I'm not sure how else to refer to the oddly shaped top), this look is a no-go.
Simply no words could describe this look. Miley Cyrus called - she wants her wardrobe back!
