Oh yes we have more wishes for the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. The awards show is one of the most varied red carpet and I am really interested in seeing what all of the stars will bring this year. This is the first time that the awards show has returned to the iconic Radio City Music Hall since the infamous 2009 ceremony where Kanye West stole the microphone from Taylor Swift. Will we have another iconic year this year? I sure hope so. Not just in terms of content of the show, but also in really great red carpet moments.Blake Lively is gearing up to promote her upcoming film A Simple Favor and is going to be one of the many presenters on Monday night at the 2018 VMA’s. Regular readers will know that Blake is one of my red carpet goddesses and I am already really excited to see what she will bring to this red carpet. Surprisingly this is the first time that Blake will be at the VMA’s and I am really excited to see what she is going to pull out. She doesn’t work with a stylist instead she picks fashion and sends her options to her friends like Christian Louboutin and Lorraine Schwartz to help style the looks. Blake has very much been a long time friend of Versace and I feel like it is the perfect brand for her to bring to life on this red carpet. I went simple yet sexy and glamorous by picking this black Versace Resort 2019 draped fringe cocktail dress which features a one shoulder silhouette and asymmetrical hemline for Blake to rock on this red carpet. She usually goes for sexy leg or breast baring looks for a red carpet like this, but I think that this dress is the perfect mesh of Hollywood starlet glamour and edgy sex appeal for this red carpet. I would leave the 3D floral broach at home instead opting to pair this dress with old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, red lips, a grey pearl acrylic Judith Leiber ridged art deco crystal embellished clutch, black lace and satin Christian Louboutin ‘Nouba’ peep toe sandals, and a pair of Lorraine Schwartz paraiba tourmaline and diamond stud earrings. I think that this would really ensure that Blake gives a head to toe perfect moment for her VMA’s debut. Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino has seven VMA nominations this year for his viral hit video “This Is America.” I feel like he just might walk away from this years ceremony with one, or more, moon men in his possession. He has some really great style and I feel like he will give us something to really get excited about when he steps onto the VMA’s red carpet next week. When it came to the men Donald was the easiest to pick a look to rock for this red carpet. I wanted him to rock Virgil Abloh’s debut collection for Louis Vuitton and so I went for one of the sleekest and boldest moments from that collection with this red single breasted suit with a matching t-shirt from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 Menswear collection. It isn’t exactly a boundary pushing menswear moment, but I definitely think that it has the potential to be a real wow moment. Leather harnesses were a staple in this collection and I would like to see Donald swap the cognac leather one and matching belt from the runway for the poppy print harness from another look and swap the belt for a simple black belt. Finishing the look with a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Black Ice’ studded lace up derbies would really make this a very chic menswear moment on this red carpet. G-Eazy is also a menswear style star always going for incredibly dapper moments on the red carpet and I am really interested to see what the newly blonde white rapper will bring to the VMA’s red carpet next week. He is going to be one of the nights many presenters and I wanted to give a formal yet relaxed look on this red carpet so I turned to one of my favorite designers, Thom Browne. I decided a statement jacket would be perfect for G to bring to this red carpet and this black and white tartan tweed golf jacket would be the perfect meshing of that formal yet relaxed vibes. The lookbook paired it with a white button down shirt, black tie, and black cropped pants and that is exactly how I think that G-Eazy would wear it on the VMA’s red carpet as well. I think that swapping the black Thom Brown oxfords with a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo’ flat black patent leather derbies to add the formality of the look. Rita Ora will be performing a tribute to Avicii during the telecast at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. Would it really be a VMA’s without Rita being on the red carpet? She has rocked so many VMA’s red carpets in the past and usually wearing the most dramatic gowns from the likes of Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan Atelier, and Alexandre Vauthier. I want to see Rita bring the glamour and drama to this red carpet wearing this bold blue Zuhair Murad Fall 2018 Couture gown which features sheer embellished lace sleeves, strong shoulders, a plunging neckline, all over beading, leather waist, and a dramatic side split. This gown isn’t the long trained gowns that we are used to seeing Rita wear on this red carpet, but I think that this is definitely a statement moment for her to bring to this red carpet. It would be perfected with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of blue Aquazzura x Claudia Schiffer ‘Loulou’s’ tiered tassel satin pumps, and a selection of deGrisogono jewels including statement sculptural diamond and sapphire earrings and a chunky sapphire and diamond cocktail ring. I could definitely see Rita swapping her red carpet gown for a cocktail look inside of Radio City Music Hall and this nude tulle and floral embroidered long sleeve Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 Couture cocktail dress which features an a-line mini skirt is something that I definitely think would make for a chic moment for Rita to change into. I think that letting her hair down with loose waves, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of red Casadei strappy pointed boots, and deGrisogono bronze and diamond coil cluster earrings would ensure that this look is also perfection. Teyana Taylor will also be one of the many presenters at the 2018 MTV VMA’s. I’ve never made a wish for Teyana before, but something tells me that she will bring some sort of really chic fashion moment to this red carpet on Monday. Last September Teyana opened The Blonds Spring 2018 RTW show during New York Fashion Week, I went back to that collection to pick the look I really want to see her bring to this red carpet. I love a good moment from The Blonds and I think that is exactly what we would get if Teyana stepped onto this red carpet wearing this white ensemble which features a 3D crystal embellished bustier, a crystal detail pencil skirt with corset lacing up the sides, and a feather shrug that she would definitely be able to sell this look to me. It is the perfect mesh of glamour and trash to really work together and I really think that only Teyana could sell this look to me on the red carpet. A pair of white graffiti print Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, and nude lips all would add the perfect finishing touches to this really sexy, glamorous, and edgy ensemble for Teyana.
The 2018 MTV Movie & Television Awards will take place on Monday August 20, 2018.
