Hot! or Hmm…: The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards

MTV’s annual Video Music Awards went down last night at LA’s Staples Center. Did you tune in?

The awards show is known for the wacky red carpet fashions, but this year, our celebrity friends managed to churn out some pretty underwhelming ensembles.

Let’s get into it:

Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose used the VMA’s as a vehicle to announce Amber’s pregnancy. *coughBeyoncédiditbettercough* Rose rocked a short platinum blonde ‘do and curve-hugging turtleneck lace gown. Wiz channeled Steve Urkel in an all black high water suit.

Our friend Robyn Fenty blessed the kids with this Rosemary’s Baby pixie cut. The Bajan songstress served in a knotted white gown, custom created by her frequent collaborator, Adam Selman. Werk!

Rita Ora gave the world a glimpse of her goodies in a custom Emilio Pucci jumpsuit. She finished her look with Sergio Rossi pumps and a Jimmy Choo clutch. Hmm…

Just in case you forgot: Gabby Douglas is adorable.

Zoe Saldana offset her Salvatore Ferragamo frock and black strappy sandals with a case of bed head.

RuPaul won the coveted “Best Dressed Male” award in this red,white, and blue suit. Hmm, I’m just gonna ignore those sandals…

Thank you, Alexander Antebi, for keeping us all awake.

Is it just me, or is Kat Graham‘s burgundy suit jacket a little ill-fitted? Gorgeous makeup, however.

As she is wont to do, Nicki Minaj let her freak flag fly in a lacy, sequined jumpsuit and sparkly Christian Louboutin pumps. As for the wig, I can’t even conjure up any semblance of shade– it’s laid like Farrah Fawcett.

My future ex-husband 2Chainz was dipped in Versace, but topped his look off with one of those interesting Givenchy brimless hats.

I’m not here for this monochromatic get up Tyga‘s sporting. Hmm…

And finally, Alicia Keys was the picture of elegance in a golden Alexandre Vauthier gown, Gucci shoes, and Lynn Ban and Repossi jewelry. Hot!


That’s all, folks! Who do you think was best dressed?
