Overall, I'd say that the fashion at this year's VMAs was overwhelmingly underwhelming. For an award show that is known for its risque environment, attendees definitely played it safe. (As I write this I wonder if I have become completely desensitized to inappropriate clothing due to the recent requirement for female pop stars to be ridiculously provocative in order to get any media attention). Anyway, that's a conversation for another time. Preceding comment aside, the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards were pretty tame.
Although there were some outliers (I'm looking at you, Amber Rose and Katy Perry), a majority of the red carpet walkers rocked all black ensembles, which I admire immensely. Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus both went the black leather route, with Grande in Moschino and Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier. And while the former child stars both looked great, I think my favorite looks of the night are Kylie Jenner in Alexandre Vauthier and Solange Knowles in H&M (!??!!).
Let's face it; Kylie Jenner killed it in her floor length silk gown with a semi-scandalous slit (she is 17 after all). It's so effortlessly cool, you almost forget that she is a member of the attention seeking Kardashian clan. And Solange always looks chic, but the fact that she a) wore a baggy blazer/pants combo to the VMAs and b) wore H&M, just makes everything ten times better. This is a perfect example of less is more. I think the VMAs are a great place to be trendy. So brava, Kylie and Solange. I approve.
