Selena Gomez has really mastered the teen to adult transition and just coming off her 21st Birthday and I can definitely see that Selena has grown to be a fabulous woman. For the big night where Selena is expected to take home at least one moon man award and to do so I would love to see her wear this dove grey Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture strapless cocktail dress. This dress might be a little tame for the occasion but Selena doesn’t really do crazy for the red carpet. This dress paired with a silver Edie Parker clutch, a pair of silver Jimmy Choo platform sandals, some simple diamond dazzlers on the ears, and a cocktail ring with a statement stone to stand out against the simple grey palate. If she does this with her tresses just flowing over one shoulder and Selena will have a hit on her hands at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on August 25th at 8pm.
Rihanna started this year on a high not with her light etherial red chiffon Azzendine Alaia gown at the 2013 Grammy Awards but has been all over the fashion map for the rest of the year. I am hoping to see top standard RiRi back on the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. For this red carpet I would love to see Rihanna wear this blue to black ombre Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture mermaid gown with a feather skirt. For those of you who read and don’t know me I have a huge thing for looks with feathers I think they are fun and when done correctly can be very chic. This is a gown where I think that it is done in a very chic way. Just a simple up-do and no jewelry or back and a pair of black simple sandals. I think that this would be a perfect look for an MTV red carpet for RiRi.
I have to say I have been a huge fan of the songs that Pink has put out in the past year as it has been really catchy or really passionate which are two things I look for in music that I put onto my iPod. With that said while I may love her music I am not always a fan of her red carpet dressing. Pink is not a typical red carpet lady as she is not a girly girl and tends to find edgier looks to wear on the red carpet. I think that this white silk chiffon top and black and silver embellished skirt from the Juan Carlos Obando Fall 2013 RTW collection is a perfect match for Pink. This is, what I believe to be, a perfect mix of red carpet glam and tomboy for Pink as I still think her best red carpet look came from a frilly Tony Ward couture gown at the 2010 Grammy Awards and this could go on the same rack of amazingness. I would complete with an edgy hairstyle and a pair of black sandals and this would be a huge improvement over several of her past red carpet ensembles.
Paula Patton is the wife of R&B crooner Robin Thicke who has one of the catchiest tunes of the summer, ‘Blurred Lines,’ nominated for a VMA. I will say I am not entirely looking forward to seeing Paula at this years MTV Video Music Awards because this year she has given all kinds of hot mess looks on the red carpet. She needs to fire her stylist in favor of someone who would actually be able to dress her and flatter her. I had to go back to the 2012 Golden Globe Awards to find a decent picture of Paula in her yellow Monique Lhuillier mermaid gown. While a gown is not where I think that Paula should go for the 2013 VMA’s I do think that she should stick to Monique Lhuillier because the two of them usually make good red carpet music together. I think that this gold brocade print crepe georgette peplum corset top and black silk crepe pants would be the perfect ensemble for this event. Complete this look with a pair of black Christian Louboutin platform pumps and a black oversized clutch and ditch the coat paired with this ensemble.
Miley Cyrus I believe has finally grown into her own personal style not dictated by anyone just her. Her run on the red carpet really started back in May at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards where she wore a stunning crystal embroidered Balmain Spring 2013 RTW jumpsuit and continued with a black vintage Versace cocktail dress at an event for an iHeartRadio event. Well for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards I would love to see Miley wear this grey crystal embellished Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture crop top and evening skirt. Miley has been going for this glam punk look and I think that this is the perfect look for her to do so. A pair of gunmetal grey Jimmy Choo sandals, her hair styled into a faux hawk, and a red lip would be the perfect way for Miley to complete this VMA ready ensemble.
Justin Timberlake is one of the two artists nominated for the most MTV Video Music Awards so I have no doubts that he will take to the red carpet at the Barclay’s Center on August 25th. The ‘Suit & Tie’ singer will with out a doubt don a Tom Ford suit and tie for the event as he and Justin have partnered to dress him for his 20/20 Experience tour. I think that this blue jacquard Tom Ford Spring 2014 Menswear ensemble would be the perfect choice for Justin who knows how to step outside of the standard black tux look when he wants. I would exchange the shoes that the look was paired with on the runway for a pair of simple black patent lace up oxfords and Justin will look HOT, well hotter than he usually does.
I am expecting to see the new Mrs Timberlake, Jessica Biel, at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards as she has been the Best Plus 1 this year standing by her husband at all of his events from Time 100 to the Grammy Awards to the Cannes Film Festival. I think that this black strapless Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 cocktail dress would be perfect for Jessica as a plus one. I would imagine that she would have this skirt fully lined and then pair it with the on trend white pumps and a clean face would keep Mrs Timberlake on the track as the perfect plus 1.
In exactly a month the best of the music world will gather at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. One star who won’t have to travel too far is Beyonce, who resides in Manhattan with her husband, Jay Z, and daughter, Blue Ivy. It was at this same event 2 years ago that Beyonce announced to the world that she was with child wearing Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana. This year I do not believe that she is with child so I am choosing to have her wear this daring sexy Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture gown. This gown features an angular skirt with a cut to there and a deep deep plunging necking and long sleeves to combat the overt sexiness. I could see Beyonce pairing this dress with some emerald earrings, an emerald cocktail ring, and a pair of silver sandals to complete this amazing red carpet look.
Taylor Swift has been constantly breaking out of her country princess and going glam royalty but it has been much of the same with the embellishments. I am hoping to see something totally off the wall when she steps out at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards next month. This nude Zuhair Murad Resort 2014 jumpsuit would be exactly what she needs to shock me. After donning short Herve Leger minis and cut out Emilio Pucci gowns I think that this jumpsuit isn’t to far out of the realm of possibilities for her red carpet options. This is one event where if Taylor wanted to rock a jumpsuit she totally could. I would finish this look off with a sleek straight hairstyle and just a pair of nude Christian Louboutin peep toe platform pumps. Keeping it simple would be the way to go for Taylor.
Selena Gomez has been transitioning from Disney princess to solo artist for about a year now and with a lot of help from Versace. This transition started in early Fall of 2012 when Selena stepped out onto the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival premiere of her film ‘Spring Breakers’ in s sophisticated nude Atelier Versace gown and forever changed the dynamics of her red carpet style. Gone are the days of sugary sweet ballgowns and in are the days of daring sleek looks and mini dresses, done quite tastefully of course. For the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, which Selena has garnered several nominations for, I would love to see Selena wear this white Versace Resort 2014 cocktail dress with long sheer sleeves. This dress is sophisticated yet sexy which is every that Selena embodies in her new look. Finish the ensemble with a pair of silver Jimmy Choo platform sandals and an emerald green clutch will make for a perfect red carpet look for the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.
Aubrey Plaza attended the 2013 MTV Movie Awards to promote her latest film ‘The To-Do List’ wearing a strapless grey Prada dress with ‘#TheToDoList’ scribbled across her chest in permanent marker. I was appalled that she did this because it reads really desperate and a little off the 12 step program. I am hoping that when she steps out onto the red carpet tomorrow night at the Bruin Theater in Hollywood for the LA Premiere of the film that all signs of desperation will be far gone and she will just look glamorous. To do so I would love to see Aubrey wear this white Marios Schwab Resort 2013 strapless gown with a deep embellished illusion v. Complete this look with a pair of on trend white pumps and a silver crystallized clutch and Aubrey will come across less harsh than she has in the past.
Connie Britton also stars in this film and hot off her Emmy nomination, for her role in the hit show Nashville, I am sure that we will see a lot more on the red carpet between now and the Emmy’s on September 22nd. For this premiere tomorrow night I would love to see Connie wear this deep purple Romona Kevesa Fall 2013 RTW strapless cocktail dress sans matching shrug. I believe that Connie has the potential to have a glamorous red carpet future and she has shown some amazing looks this year from Zac Posen, Black Halo, and Reem Acra. This dress paired with a black crystallized clutch and a pair of black peep toe pumps would be the perfect match for each other.
Rachel Bilson will be the only member of the cast that could bring couture to the red carpet so I am wishing that she does. This black shirred Chanel Spring 2013 Couture dress was one of my favorite looks from the collection and I am still surprised that this dress hasn’t been picked up for a red carpet appearance. Rachel would look amazing in this dress as it’s sophisticated yet BoHo which is the essence of Rachel’s red carpet and personal style. A green Chanel lego clutch and a pair of black satin pumps would be the right additions to not make this look too over the top for this event.
