VMA Fugs and Fabs: The Dudes (With Bonus Appearances From a Lady or Two)


First of all, we need to give a round of applause to the man or woman responsible for getting The Biebs into real, normal-person-fitting, proper jeans. They make a WORLD of difference.  The hair, on the other hand, well…let’s discuss. Also: Austin Butler holds a puppy! Half of Fall Out Boy are pretty sure they’re the oldest people there! Shaun White wears neither denim NOR a hoodie!

VMAs Well Played, Kat Graham in Vintage Versace


well-played

First of all, I’d like to note that (as I always note when I write about her) I love Kat Graham:

2015 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

We got to chat with her last night while we were on the scene for Cosmo, and she was super nice and really charming (which has always been our experience with her in person; at one point, while she was waiting for another interview, she popped back over to hang out with us and said, “I’m just going to keep talking to you about shopping.” BE OUR FRIEND, KAT GRAHAM). So, we ended up having this whole convo with her about how she stalks vintage clothes that she wants on the internet. She is apparently a real collector, which I respect as a…well, I am more of a hoarder. Details! But, for example, she told us that she just got a piece from the final collection that Galliano did for Dior, but she’s saving it for “a major moment,” so keep an eye out.  To that end, this is one of the aforementioned stalked vintage items, and, real talk: I think it’s really good for this event. It’s unusual and youthful and bright and kicky, which is basically the platonic ideal for the VMAs. Bonus points for not being sheer. Or BORING.

VMAs Fine or Fug or Fab: Hailee Steinfeld


I’ve decided this first look is a sort of High Fashion Princess Leia, and now I can’t bring myself to dislike it.

Cosmo.com: 13 Surprising Observations From the 2015 VMAs Red Carpet


If you follow us on Twitter, you are already aware that Heather and I were on site for the VMAs red carpet last night. We wrote up our experience there for the folks at Cosmo. For example:

We’d hoped that the VMAs — being an MTV jam — would pass around glasses of something sponsored that smelt faintly of gasoline, the better to numb everyone’s stiletto-abused feet. Instead, the only thing on the rocks on the red carpet was water, albeit poured by bartenders, and hidden behind some black curtains were tables of bagels and fruit. Yes, you read that right: MTV picked carbs over Cristal.

MTV VMAs Fug Carpet: The Naked and the Sheers


Or in pizza* terms: It’s not delivery, it’s DiGiorNOOOOOOOO.

*For the uninitiated, one day we decided we were tired of talking about sheer clothing and decided to talk about pizza instead. It’s morphed into GFY slang in which “pizza” means “sheer.”

MTV VMAs: Taylor Swift’s Lady Posse


Taylor assembled as many of her crew as she could manage for the VMAs, and results were mixed at best. Of course, their fearless leader wore fancy sweatpants, so maybe the whole organization had an off day.
