Nicki Minaj, whom I actually like (for the most part), let me down tremendously at last night’s awards show! Her stylist, who usually dresses her very nicely for performances and photo shoots, must be on vacation…or listening to Nicki way too much. The bang’d bombshell first showed up to the 2010 MTV VMAs, ready to do her pre-show performance, in a shiny pink and purple spacesuit whose colors remind me of my first bicycle as a kid! It was shiny, pink, AND purple. A pink beehive and thigh-high black boots complete this Barbie’s look. The only think I can think that’s missing is a jet pack!
She sported her second look for the night onstage with Katy Perry, while presenting the award for Best Male Video to Eminem for ‘Not Afraid’. She sported a beige sleeveless jumpsuit that I was just NOT feeling. It was very unflattering for her shape behind, and I thought the accessories were way over-the-top. That statement necklace is saying way too much, and those extra-high-platform pumps paired with the too-short legs of the suit just look strange.
Glee star Amber Riley also presented an award at last night’s show, and she walked the white carpet wearing this all black rock-princess-gone-wrong get up. #Dead ..I mean, is that a vest she’s wearing over the dress? ..and geek-chic glasses? Why?!
Choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson, who most of you may know from her contributions to the Making of the Band shows, also attended last night’s event. She sat right next to her pal Lady Gaga, who won 8 awards last night, wearing a somewhat questionable outfit. I don’t know if she’s going for a rockstar look or prepping for Halloween. Where did the purple hair come from? …blue peek-a-boo bra? …and hot pants? Is she serious?!
Naturi Naughton is ALWAYS a loser in my book. Her and fashion are like water and oil. Cat and mouse. Paris Hilton and sobriety. I know some of you may say this look is not THAT bad, but for me, it just doesn’t work. A secretary blouse, latex leggings, and rocker-chic booties? …Not at the VMAs honey!
