As the summer slowly comes to a close, one thing to have looked forward to would have been the annual VMA awards…and obvi the red carpet too! But of course, since I’m crazy busy, I totally missed it #lol. So I’m checking out the best looks now, and let’s just say, there are a few noteworthy ensembles.

One thing that definitely blends well with the celebs’, and specifically the musical artists’ worlds would have to be fashion, and any awards show with talent is one that I aim to watch–or at least try to. So without further ado, here are Sass & Leather’s 5 best and worst dressed picks of the 2014 VMA’s!

I know most of you may think she looks too boobalicious, or that this dress is outrageous, but when I scrolled by Kimmy’s baby sis Kylie’s Instagram pic of this dress, I stopped. I mean, I’m not the biggest fan of Balmain because it can be a little too outrageous at times, but this dress is nuts, in all the best of ways!!! Living.

One of the hottest artists on the scene at the moment, and also hot in the tabloids about her huge breakup with Calvin Harris, Rita Ora looked red-hot the other night, literally. I love how she slicks her hair back; it’s very sexy to me, and that red gown with the slit for her leg is great.

The most underrated, and possibly known as the most selfiesh Kardashian sister (yes I combined selfie and selfish into one), I can honestly say that Kylie looked gorgeous. Sorry Kenny, your little sister definitely beat you; follow the side slit gown trend. Those lips may be plump and not real, but they are definitely working for KyKy. Let’s just try to forget she’s only, like, 16 years old 🙂

Okay, so I know you really must think I’m nuts, since their outfits were ridic…but I mean, VERSACE!!! They had an ingenious take on Britney and J.T.’s look from the 2001 VMA’s, and I think they rocked the shit out of it. I just think anything rocking those large studs and medusa heads is amazing, and though they may not be totally fashionable, they definitely made a statement. Not to mention, they’re both silly people at heart!

Ya I know I said I’d pick 5, but both of these hot mamas each wore some stunning metallic gowns to the red carpet, and I think they both looked amazing. I’m not usually a huge fan of J.Lo, but the Charbel Zoe crystal gown brought out the Jenny from the block, and she looked stunning. Also the newest name on the scene, and one of my favs, Iggy looked #SICK in that Versace gown. Nuff said.

For the worst dressed, I’m going to be blunt and simple; there were a few misses here. You may just be surprised at what I’ve chosen…

  1. Kendall Jenner

I’m sorry guys, Kendall looked good, but that’s just about it. She could’ve done soooooo much better! Just because her outfit is Balmain, doesn’t mean it’s all that special. I thought she was supposed to be the hottest model right now? Better luck next time.

  1. Taylor Swift

Normally designer Mary Katrantzou is known for bold, funky prints, but this weird jumpsuit thing just did not work for T. Swizzle. #cameltoe.

  1. Miley Cyrus

Meh. Been there done that.

  1. Ariana Grande

Loving her new album, but not so much this outfit. She looks like a Bratz doll!!! I’m dying. Sorry A, Moschino ain’t for you, and neither are those thigh-highs. Maybe on Iggy though 🙂

First of all, this isn’t the Oscars girl; why are you wearing pants. Second of all, when I got a first glance of this outfit, I thought to myself “Uh, what…?”. Then I proceeded to read that this was Louis Vuitton. To be honest, if you didn’t know it was Vuitton, would it really be that cute?

Overall, the fashion this year was pretty spot on, and even though there were a few absurd choices, it doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the talent!

What did you think of Sass & Leather’s 5 best and worst dressed of the 2014 VMA’s? Did I hit the nail on the head, or do I look cray-cray, like Riff Raff & Katy Perry’s get-ups? Stay tuned for my 2014 Emmy Awards picks!
