MTV Video Music Awards: Best and worst dressed
Source: nzherald.co.nz   |   August 28, 2017   |  138 Views

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards are underway and as per its reputation, the red carpet is where the stars congregate to make, for better or worse, some serious fashion statement.

With Katy Perry playing host it's hardly surprising that this year has brought out some of the most questionable outfits to date.

From Jared Leto's technicolour dream coat, to Hayley Baldwin's sequin jumpsuit, these are the looks you need to see from this year's carpet.

Perhaps one of the most unexpected choices, Lorde arrived in an ethereal lilac gown by Monique Lhuillier. The corset top and full, feathery skirt was offset by a super cute, half up 'do and fun pink eyeshadow.

Machine Gun Kelly

Machine Gun Kelly deserves an award for the co-ordination in this outfit alone. Pulling off this difficult look with ease, it's a refreshing choice compared to many other jeans-and-sneaker-clad men on the carpet.

Vanessa Hudgens

Va-va-voom! Vanessa Hudgens is smoking hot in this racy red number. The dramatic, swept-back hair and bold red eyeshadow amplifies the statement.

Caroline D'Amore

The actress and singer looks effortlessly chic in this embellished, embroidered dress paired with a cute emoji clutch bag.

Alessandra Ambrosio

The Victoria's Secret model absolutely nailed it in this black lace-up number, complete with a fierce high ponytail.

Sofia Carson

Another star that nailed the perfectly polished pony, singer Sofia Carson worked the exaggerated shapes in this dramatic black gown.

Hayley Baldwin

Proof the sheer look isn't done yet, Hayley Baldwin's silver lace jumpsuit is a perfect music awards pick.

While her hair and accessories are kept simple, the satin belt and plunging neckline emphasise the model's figure

Millie Bobby Brown

Could Stranger Things' breakout star Millie Bobby Brown get any cuter?

Her gold-detailed dress pairs perfectly with her combat-inspired boots to keep her look youthful yet super glamorous.

Mel B

Mel looks incredible in this statement "you will never own me" dress, which is a clear message to ex Stephen Belafonte during their nasty divorce.

The America's Got Talent coach is looking fitter and stronger than ever before in this stunning sequin number.

Proof embroidery on a wedding dress should begin and end with Angelina Jolie's, Lizzo's look, from the sparkly sneakers to the suspenders, is just a big no.

Ed Sheeran

Ed's clearly rolled off the couch and wandered onto the carpet without a care in the world.

Come on Ed, you can do better than that.

Demi Lovato

Side-on this black sequin outfit looks amazing. But when she turns to face the camera front-on Lovato's hammer pants just don't work.

The bodysuit would have been better paired with a straight leg pant, or full skirt, or literally anything except these pants.

Joe Jonas

This will be remembered as that time Joe Jonas's moustache went into battle with a chest full of weird purple glitter fluff. The singer seems to have wandered off the set of The Wedding Singer and we're not digging it.

DJ Khaled

DJ Khaled has clearly gotten lost on his way to the SeaWorld Splash Zone, which is the only place where one should wear such a jacket.

His son, however, nailed it in an adorable, colourful suit.

Jared Leto

Or should that be Joseph Leto? He's conquered the silver screen and the music world, is this technicolor dream coat a signal that he's headed for the musical stage?

Katy Perry

The old adage "less is more" doesn't usually come into consideration for music awards. But in this instance it would have served Perry well. Her look has too many angles, too much shoulder and too much earring.

Jack Antanoff

If it was a tradesman's convention Jack Antanoff would be on the best dressed list. But it's not.

Fifth Harmony

Dinah Jane is the only one holding down the fashion fort for Fifth Harmony. Capri pants, a feather-line cleavage and ill-fitting cutouts combined to amount to three failed choices from the rest of her crew.

Nicki Minaj

While Nicki's bod looks incredible in this strange latex number, the bubblegum pink two-piece looks about as comfortable as root canal.
