Red Carpert Recap: My Favorite Looks from MTV's 2016 Video Music Awards

Last night, MTV held their famous Video Music Awards show in New York. Celebs showed up and showed out. I've rounded up my favorite red (figuratively speaking) carpet looks from last night. In no particular order, they are:

 1. Beyonce in Francesco Scognamiglio Haute Couture.

I loved this gown on Beyonce. She has really been stepping out of her fashion box as of late. Also, how cute is little Blue? Yes, cornrows! 

2. Nicki Minaj in Bao Tranchi.

I just had a conversation with my cousin about Nicki being out of the spotlight lately. She made you remember who she was just in case you forgot in a beautiful cobalt sheer paneled gown.  I love the color on her more than the style of the gown, but she still looked great. She kept hair and makeup minimal as not to compete with the sexiness of the dress. Well done.

3. Britney Spears in Julien Macdonald.

A little black dress (LBD) never disappoints. Britney amped hers up with asymmetric hemlines and cutouts. She paired it with a sexy sky high black pump and wavy hair. She looked great.

3. Chloe and Halle in Rodarte

I love these two sisters' style. They give me boho glam if that's such a thing. They looked cool and confident on the carpet. They accented their ensembles with gold facial and hair jewelry. Beautiful

4. Nick Jonas in Louis Vuitton 

Nick repped for the men in a Louis Vuitton bomber jacket straight from the runway paired with a simple white tee, black pants, and white canvas shoes

5. Ashley Graham in Naeem Khan

I hate to call this woman plus size because in my eyes she isn't.  She's just a curvy woman, but that's how this industry works. Anyway, she repped for the curvy girls in a sheer gown that was sure to make you look twice. Paired with a wavy short bob, she slayed.

Honorable Mention

6. Amber Rose in Tom Ford and La Perla

I love the look Amber was going for, but something was off to me. Maybe if she opened the blazer and wore a high waist pant to show off the bra, or amped up the neckwear, or wore a more tailored blazer since she wore it closed. She was close to the nail, but didn't hit it on the head for me.

7. Cassie in Balmain and Gucci

Same with Amber Rose, Cassie was almost there. I think I prefer the blazer closed with this look and the cleavage peeping through. It's as if Amber and Cassie would have wore the other's look as they did, their looks would have been spot on.
