Monday the brightest stars in music and beyond will descend on the red carpet at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. This years show sounds like it is going to be really great. I am obsessed with the stars who are nominated, presenting, and performing this year and I just hope that everyone brings the glamour to the red carpet. Amandla Stenberg has been on my radar for a while now, since she played Rue in The Hunger Games to be honest. She is going to be one of the many presenters during the show and I am very excited to see what she will bring. She literally just started working with superstar stylist Karla Welch and I am really excited to see where their relationship can go. I had honestly already picked this Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 ensemble which features a lace detailed draped champagne silk top and a pair of lace and beaded scalloped drawstring shorts before I heard that Amandla was working with Karla, but since Karla does so well placing LV on her clients (especially Ruth Negga) that I thought that this would be just the perfect mashing of talents. Amandla has this edgy yet bohemian style and I think that is exactly what we get from this look. I thought about turning this top into a gown, but then I thought about it and the runway look just fit the vibe of the VMA’s. I think that if Amandla styled this ensemble with full pulled back curls, smokey eyes, burgundy lips, gold brocade Louis Vuitton ‘Night Bloom’ ankle boots, and a pair of Louis Vuitton ‘Bionic’ miss-matched wings and leaves earrings that this look would be absolutely perfect from head to toe. Common knows how to give good menswear on the red carpet. He doesn’t typically go for printed suits on the red carpet, but for the 2018 VMA’s (where he’s presenting) I went for a printed look for the rapper to rock on the red carpet. I don’t typically like shiny suits but I definitely think that this black Fendi Spring 2019 Menswear silk suit which features a tribal pattern embroidered on both the jacket and pants which I would keep paired with the black button down shirt with red piping on the collar and down the button lines is something that Common would rock with ease and aplomb on this red carpet. The shiny suit reads more formal but the embroidery and the bowling style shirt would bring this look to the more laid back vibe of the VMA’s red carpet. A pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Mika Sky’ derbies would just continue to make sure that this look is perfect for the this red carpet. After having a major year of giving birth, gracing her first post baby red carpet in custom Alexander Wang at the Met Gala, and turning 21 Kylie Jenner is expected to take to the red carpet at the VMA’s next Monday with her baby daddy Travis Scott. He is performing and I feel like Kylie will be there to support him. (Will Kris play the glam-mother and babysit Stormi?) I thought about a Balmain mini dress, but I wanted to give Kylie a more glamorous moment for this red carpet. So I went to Michael Costello and found this burgundy draped gown which features a high ruffled neck, keyhole cutout, ruched waist, flowing skirt, sexy split, and a dramatic train. It was everything I was looking for: sexy, dramatic, and glamorous. I want Kylie to really deliver on this red carpet. I don’t know what it is about her but she is one of the few Kardashian-Jenner’s that I can actually support and I want to see her rock the red carpet in the most glamorous looks possible. I think that with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, her Kylie Cosmetics ‘Twenty’ colored lip kit, and a pair of bronze Casadei crossover strap platform sandals all would really ensure that this is a major glam moment for Kylie.Shay Mitchell knows how to give chic and sexy moments on the red carpet and that is exactly what I am expecting to see her bring to the red carpet Monday at the VMA’s. She is also one of this years many confirmed presenters and I am really looking forward to seeing what she will rock. I could have picked just about anything off the runway for Shay. She can wear just about anything and look great, but when I saw this white Balmain one shoulder evening gown which features silver crystal embellishments on on side of the hip, an asymmetric high-low skirt, and ruched details on the Neiman Marcus website it got me excited. It is glamorous, chic, and sexy and that is exactly what I think we will see Shay bring to this red carpet on Monday. I would add a sleek hairstyle tucked behind the ears, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of silver Gianvito Rossi asymmetric crystal embellished sandals, and Hueb ‘Luminous’ diamond and emerald earrings to really keep this look sleek, chic, and glamorous. Tiffany Haddish has really been an unexpected style star. I am really excited to see what the Night School star is going to bring the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet next week. I feel like her image architect Law Roach will bring something awesome to the table for this red carpet. I went really edgy picking this black Off White c/o Virgil Abloh Fall 2018 RTW half crocodile leather and half lamb leather cocktail dress which features an asymmetrical jewel neckline with a cutout at the shoulder, ruched details, an asymmetrical hem, and a single three-quarter length sleeve for Tiffany to rock on this red carpet. It has 0 hangar appeal, but I think that the way it hugs curves would look absolutely amazing on this red carpet. I think that sleek hair, smokey eyes, nude glossy lips, and a pair of black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Tacey’ slingback pumps embellished with crystals and feathers would really made this look extra af, and I totally think that Tiffany would own it with her confident presence.
The 2018 MTV Movie & Television Awards will take place on Monday August 20, 2018.
