Ariana Grande is trying to loose her sweet girl image going with some more edgy looks recently. I haven’t been buying it for the most part but I am glad that she seems to be stepping away from the sugary sweet looks because they always made her look way younger than she actually is. With several nominations under her belt this year I am sure that Ariana will be on the carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. To continue with her red carpet reinvention I would love to see Ariana hit the red carpet wearing this floral and leather Fausto Puglisi Resort 2017 mini skater dress. I think that while this is a pretty standard cocktail dress silhouette the mix of the patchwork floral prints and the pleated leather panel make this a look perfect for the red carpet on Ariana. I would love to see Ariana style this look right with a tight bun, a dark red lip, and a pair of strappy black sandals to really push this look over the threshold into one of her best red carpet looks ever. All eyes will be on what Britney Spears wears on the red carpet at the VMA’s this Sunday. Not because it is going to be the most out there or the best dressed but because she has announced that she will auction the dress off after the show to help in relief efforts for flood victims in her home state of Louisiana. Britney has never been one that I really have ever liked what she has worn on the red carpet but I do hope that she really delivers something that a lot of people will bid on since it will be donated to such a great cause. I think that this strapless Dany Atrache Fall 2016 Couture cocktail dress which reminds me of flappers and circus performers is something that is right up Britney’s ally. I am kinda over seeing Brit in lingerie inspired looks as I am really fatigued at the less is more trend and this would just be something chic and fun. A pair of black sandals, full waves, and a red lip would make sure that Britney has a look that doesn’t land her on the Worst Dressed list for the red carpet at the VMAs.Fergie has been off the red carpet scene for a while but her song “M.I.L.F. $” is nominated for Best Art Direction and Best Editing so I am hoping that she will make an appearance at the VMA’s this weekend. I was trying to find the perfect look for Fergie to rock on the red carpet and I looked at all the usual suspects from Cavalli to Moschino to Balmain but it was this red On Aura Tout Vu Fall 2016 Couture cocktail dress with a dramatic train and spike detailed one shoulder that really screamed Fergie the moment I saw it. I love finding new labels to feature because covering the same Gucci, Dior, Elie Saab, Valentino looks all get boring sometimes. I saw this collection and thought this would be perfect for wishes for music awards and then Fergie was nominated for the VMA’s and I just found it a perfect match. A sleek updo, smokey eye, and a pair of statement gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Belle” crystal embellished sandals would really finish this look perfectly for a music awards show red carpet. I am really hoping that Breakthrough Long Form Video and Best Choreography nominated Florence Welch will hit the red carpet at the MTV VMA’s this weekend. I always love the bohemian glamour that Flo brings to the red carpet and her current partnership with Gucci is a match made in heaven. Usually on this site you see me bemoan brand ambassadors that exclusively wear the label they represent on the red carpet, but I think that Florence could be on a red carpet in Gucci every week and I would not be bored of her. For the VMA’s I would love to see Flo hit the red carpet in this black tulle Gucci Resort 2017 sheer French regency style gown which features a scoop neck, puffed sleeves, and the new Gucci signature snake embroidered on the bodice. Instead of the 70’s inspiration that we have mostly seen Flo rock on the red carpet this year this gown takes inspiration from a bygone era that we don’t see referenced in fashion very much. I think that if anyone could make this dress really shine on the red carpet it will be Flo. A pair of black Gucci knotted sandals, a bohemian updo, diamond cluster earrings, and a red lip would jet Florence to the top of my best dressed list. Rounding out the nominees is Rihanna, who on top of scoring 4 nominations for her songs Work and This Is What You Came For is going to be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award following in the footsteps of Kanye, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, U2, Janet Jackson, Madonna, David Bowie, and The Beatles. Rihanna is slated to perform a melody of her hit songs prior to accepting her award. I would love to see Rihanna hit the red carpet at the VMA’s prior to her performance wearing this black Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture fit to flare sheer gown which features a black body suit, firework beading and a feathered hem. This is a really glam look for the VMA’s but I say that if you are the nights guest of honor then you better go big or go home. I imagine that there will be a couple of outfit changes in store for RiRi on Sunday but I think that this is perfection for the red carpet part of the evening. Going full glam with the styling including a pair of dazzling yellow gold diamond drop earrings, a pair of black sandals, chic updo, and red lip would really make this the perfect look for Rihanna to rock on the VMA red carpet.
