The VMA’s are coming and I am really excited to see what this years event will look like. The producers are creating bubbles for performers and their crews in New York and LA. I was hoping for a red carpet, but it doesn’t seem like that will happen. I do hope that glam squads are putting together formal looks in addition to performance looks so that if their clients are presenting or performing they serve us up FASHION. In today’s wishes you are going to find a plethora of superb glam moments for nominees and performers at this years VMA’s they all would have been major moments on the red carpet, but would be just as major from a studio space. I just want major fashion. Is that too much to ask for? Rain on Me has lead Ariana Grande (and of course Queen Gaga) to the most VMA nominations this year. They will also be performing at this years ceremony. We haven’t seen them able to get out and perform this song before so I am really excited to see what will come. Now while later you are going to see a wish for Gaga’s performance outfit I just picked a look for Ariana to wear if she gives us DRAMA to accept any of the awards she and Gaga are bound to win. I would love to see her grab up this fuchsia pink tulle Ralph & Russo Fall 2020 Couture ballgown which features a sweetheart neckline, asymmetrically micro pleated bustier bodice, and multi-layered voluminous fan frill skirt with cascading train. It is that frothy feminine moment that we know Ari loves and I feel like it would be a superb moment for her to wear for the VMA’s. Now she would most likely style this look with her signature pony tail (insert eye roll here), but I would love to see her switch things up and style this gown with a major big bun updo. A thick winged eyeliner, soft pink lips, a pair of fuchsia pink grosgrain Casadei ‘Cannete Blade’ pointed toe stilettos, and a selection of Butani jewels including simple pink ruby and white diamond teardrop stud earrings, a statement white diamond collar necklace, and a selection of two pink ruby and white diamond bracelets would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Ariana. Camila Cabello is far from someone I get excited to see on the red carpet. She tends to look cheap and disheveled even when she’s wearing couture. It really is her hair that ruins looks for me. I feel like she could deliver good looks, but her pageant princess meets sex hair just doesn’t work for me. To put her on the path to a glamorous moment I started with this dusty sky blue tulle Christian Dior Spring 2020 Couture off the shoulder knot draped a-line ball gown. I feel like this gown speaks to Camila’s sexy meets bohemian glam sense of style. I feel like this could be a superb moment for Camila. I feel like maybe the pairing of Camila and Dior, both of whom I usually find very lackluster, could potentially work very well together. To make this look really work I would love to see Camila style this gown with a romantic curly and braided updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of silver lizard leather embossed Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Catia’ strappy sandals, and Tiffany & Co. drop earrings set in platinum with emerald-cut aquamarines and baguette white diamonds from the 2019 Tiffany Blue Book Collection.Dua Lipa knows how to bring the sexy and I am hoping we will see her take part in the show where she is nominated for 4 awards. I thought going to a British label known for his love of sex was the right choice for Dua. I love this black velvet and lace Christopher Kane Fall 2020 RTW mini dress which features a bralet, cutout underboob, corset style waist, and a flounced a-line skirt and I really do think it would be super sexy glam moment for Dua to wear for an event like the VMA’s. I feel like Kane designs are a little underrated. He is a master at toeing the like between sex, glamour, and trash without it coming across as trashy. A sleek updo, defined soft smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black velvet Christian Louboutin ‘Rabakate Alta 120’ peep toe half d’Orsay platform pumps, and art deco inspired Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 geometric white diamond and emerald drop earrings would definitely ensure this look screams absolute glamour from head to toe. When Lady Gaga is announced as a guest at any event she automatically becomes the person I am most excited to see. I feel like I never know what she will bring to life on the red carpet. I am sad that there will be no actual red carpet for Lady Gaga to grace this year. As I mentioned earlier I hope stars will bring a major fashion moment for both acceptance speeches and performances. Gaga is one of the stars who I actually picked two different looks for starting with that red carpet look for accepting the awards I am sure she will take home this year. It was recently announced that Gaga will front the next Valentino fragrance campaign and so I turned to the Valentino Spring 2020 Couture collection for a major fashion moment for her to bring to life at the VMAs with this baby pink silk and ostrich feather gown. This gown which features that major feathered bodice, a red lined skirt, thigh high split, and a dramatic train is definitely in tune with Gaga’s style. She is one of very, very few stars who I feel like would be able to make this gown really come to life and not let it wear her. I would let the gown be the statement with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of baby pink Pleaser ‘Aspire’ peep toe platform sandals, and a selection of dazzling Tiffany & Co, jewels including drop earrings set in platinum featuring pink kunzites and white diamonds and a geometric circle white diamond 2015 Blue Book cuff bracelet. To perform “Rain on Me” in a yet to be disclosed location (hopefully the streets of NYC) I turned to The Blonds and this major sequin and crystal detailed look from their Fall 2018 RTW collection. I fell like this gold moto jacket trimmed with floor length fringe paired with a disco ball bodysuit is right up Gaga’s ally. It would be a super cool moment styled with long center parted straight hair, a gold Manokhi biker hat, thick defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, the runways spike studded gold thigh high Christian Louboutin boots, and by Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. ‘Leaves’ ear clips with peridots and diamonds set in platinum and 18 karat gold.
