Amidst furiously composing an essay and attending to my roommates midnight craving for ramen, I was unable to view any part of the AMAs last night. However, I have been searching the internet in hopes of being wowed by the trends, and I was definitely not disappointed. Edgy, fun, and skin baring were the theme of the top looks. Although these looks may not have been greatly practical for the newly snow-covered streets of London, a girl can dream…
Winner of the night: Selena Gomez
Everything from her cranberry smokey eye to her sleek long hair and open-back tattoo-showcasing dress was perfection. If this is her way of showing she’s too good for Bieber, she nailed it. Although there was some speculation about them getting close at the after party…
Also, she nailed her costume change for her performance of “Same Old Love”. Sleek, sexy, and a far cry from her Disney days.
Next Winner: Gigi Hadid
She threw everyone for a loop with the appearance of a fake bob hairstyle and was rightfully one of the major topics of the night. Going from her Victorias Secret glossy waves to this showed a stark contrast, however she instantly revealed her secret. Paired with a sleek and sexy winter white dress made for a killer combination. Then again, I haven’t met a Gigi carpet look I didn’t like.
Next Winner: Carrie Underwood.
Ethereal, goddess-like, and glowing. Carrie wore a cape on the carpet to further prove her super-human like good looks and toned physique. Cue the applause.
Wearing a dress dubbed as “leaving little to the imagination” left Ciara in a top spot on the trend list. Intricate bejewelling made her a major fixture on the carpet and, as always, one to admire.
Winner: Meghan Rienks
Youtube stars have slowly but surely been making their way onto the carpet and into these events. Being an avid follower, I always like to check in on team internet to see the closest thing to a “real girl” look on the carpet (though sometimes they are hard to distinguish from the models). I loved this look on her, as it followed the trends of the night while maintaining wearability.
Loved the edgy, fresh feel of the VMAs, including sleek hair, dramatic eyes, and metallic accents. Definitely copyable in real life. Maybe I’ll even watch next year!
