The MTV VMAs 2014 are upon us today and aside from seeing who picks up awards for best MV & choreography etc., there is nothing like snooping as the red carpet fashion trails through the crowds and think to yourself...
- “OMG. What in the world are they wearing?!” or
- “Damn girl, you got it going on” or
- “I need a fan… STAT” or
- “I need a bucket… STAT”
I think number 1 (& maybe 4) applies to Wiz Khalifa’s partner, Amber Rose’s chainmail excuse for a dress. What the?!?!?!
Moving onto Asian pop awards night fashion, let’s take a look at some of the hits and misses of the past years at either the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMAs), the Golden Disc Awards or the Melon awards.
1. 2NE1 - HIT
2NE1 rarely go wrong. They have such a cool mix of edge and class, and being dressed by Jeremy Scott always helps, but in this case at the 2011 MAMAs they rocked a variety of faux-fur-trimmed styles and blew eveyone away.
Special commendation goes to Dara's hair stylist and his/her atomic spray.
2. BLOCK B - HIT & MISS
A swashbuckling Block B pushed the Victorian sailor theme to its limits at the 2012 Mnet Awards. I think B-Bomb was last in the room when costumes were handed out...
3. SNSD - HIT & MISS
Girls' Generation rarely have a fashion faux pas, they are all so pretty they could all pull off anything really! There's definitely a lot of frills and girly glitz in their 2011 MAMA Award fashion concept (a little too much for me) but it totally suited their image at the time.
4. f(x) - HIT
f(x) totally nailed their look at the 28th Annual Golden Disk Awards. Just the right amount of leather. Nailed it!
5. Hyuna & Hyunseung - MISS
And then there was that year when HyunA forgot to wear pants...
That is the only reason they are a 'miss'. Hyuna & Hyunseung looked perfect otherwise at the 2012 MAMA awards.
6. SHINee - HIT
SHINee at the Mnet 20s Choice Awards... I think Key's pants are wearing him.
7. T-ARA - MISS
T-ARA at the 27th Golden Disk Awards: boots 9/10, jackets 3/10.
8. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - HIT
When is Kyary not a hit? She isn't fashionable - she IS fashion! Her outfit at the 2012 MTV VMAs was no exception.
9. EXO - HIT
A lot of people thought the suits were a bit of a boring choice for the EXO boys at the 2013 MAMAs, but I think they look sharp! Someone call the doctor...
10. SHOW LO - MISS
Hmm not sure about your 2013 Youtube Awards choice of jacket Show... you're also a hot pink beacon for fan girls! Dangerous!
11. BIGBANG - HIT
G-Dragon's pants and Daesung's ruffle FTW!
