We are just a couple days away from the 2020 VMA’s. I am really excited to see what this years virtual edition is going to bring. I have no real expectations. We’ve seen some events go really great while others have left me wanting more. I want this event to go over delivering a major production that helps us escape from the reality of the pandemic, at least for a little bit. Billie Eilish earned herself six nominations at this years VMA’s. After sweeping the Grammy’s earlier this year it would seem like she is the heir apparent to do the same for the VMA’s. When it comes to style we know that Billie favors her oversized street inspired looks. I noticed that over the course of the Fall 2020 collection presentations earlier this year that brands that I never would have turned to for looks for Billie were showing a look that could have been optioned by the teen pop star. I told a friend that writing that I was picking a look from Erdem for Billie for this wish sounds far fetched. She responded “HAHAHAHHA it’s a good dream.” Then I sent her this silver silk floral jacquard pajama inspired oversized co-ord from the Erdem Fall 2020 RTW collection and she responded with “I’d never imagine this to be HER, but it’s exactly HER.” I think that is the mark of a good designer. Erdem expanded his glam to a new market with this look and I do feel like it would be a cool moment for Billie especially styled with a pair of silver and white Roger Vivier ‘Viv Run’ crystal embellished buckle chunky sneakers. Had there been a red carpet at the VMAs it would have been the first MAJOR red carpet Demi Lovato would have walked. I would have liked to see what she would have cooked up for the red carpet. I didn’t go to the runways though for the perfect glamour moment for Demi to rock with this hot pink Versace cross draped stretch jersey halter neck gown with gold safety pin details and center split from the virtual racks of LuisaViaRoma.com. While Demi could pull a look from many major runways this dress is a super cool moment that I feel she would be able to make this gown into a MAJOR fashion moment. Styling this gown with a sleek side parted updo, thick defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, a pair of fuchsia glitter Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Polina’ strappy sandals, and Nikos Koulis ‘Feelings’ collection yellow gold chain hoop earrings with white diamonds would definitely ensured this is one of Demi’s best red carpet moments ever. I know that Halsey can serve a major fashion moment on the red carpet, but often times I feel like I’m questioning her taste. I want her to continue to give her fashionable chameleon vibes, but always making sure that she hits the high fashion marks. So when I was thinking about what I would have wanted to see her wear on the red carpet at the VMA’s if there was one I immediately went to this dramatic midnight blue, grey, lavender, and gold watercolor agate print Georges Hobeika Fall 2020 Couture gown which features dramatic caped sleeves. It’s a super cool moment and not many could sell it to me. I feel like the edgy that Halsey brings to the red carpet would definitely make sure that this look screams cool especially if styled with a short black finger wave updo, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Bel’ silver crystal embellished peep toe slingback sandals, and Anita Ko white diamond ‘Rain Drop’ earrings set in white gold. Megan Thee Stallion knows how to serve glamour on the red carpet so I am disappointed that we won’t get to see her give us a major fashion moment on the VMA’s red carpet. Had there been one I would have LOVED to see Megan give us femme fatale glamour wearing this sapphire blue sequined Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu Fall 2020 Couture strapless sculptural mermaid gown which features an asymmetric neckline, half peplum, and a thigh high split. It would ooze glamour and with old Hollywood lives, thick winged eyes, bold red lips, sapphire blue velvet Tom Ford jeweled heel sandals, and a selection of major Butani jewels including a pair of twisted wreath white diamond earrings, a white diamond leaf wave cut bracelet, and a selection of white diamond and sapphire rings. The Weeknd is nominated and will be performing at this weekends VMA’s. It’s been a while since he’s been out on the red carpet and I am excited to see what he will rock. The last red carpet he walked he gave us 70’s vibes and I kinda stuck to that for my wish for him to wear for the VMA’s. I would love to see The Weeknd rock this black damier check print single breasted suit from the Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 Menswear collection with a crisp white button down shirt and a thin black skinny tie. Finishing the moment with a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Voltaire’ silver metal toe capped derbies and graphite Louis Vuitton ‘Mascot Marble’ square aviator sunglasses would definitely make this a super chic menswear moment.
The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will take place on Sunday August 30, 2020. You can see all my VMA’s wishes here.
