Red Carpet Rundown: The Best & Worst MTV VMAs Beauty

Screen Shot 2013-08-26 at 10.51.42 AM The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were a cornucopia of bad fashion decisions–but the beauty decisions were a little more even-handed. Check out great hair, great makeup and awesome butts from pop music’s luminaries. 2013 MTV Video Music Awards - ArrivalsWorst Makeup

The Jersey Shore‘s Deena Cortese was the victim of some seriously awful color-typing last night. Also, where did her left eye’s false lashes go?? 2013 MTV Video Music Awards - BackstageMost Morose

Kanye West wore a scowl in every photo we saw–but a pretty rad jean jacket, so that’s a wash.

We know Coco Rocha was going for something Tilda Swinton-esque when she chopped off her hair and dyed it red. Nicely done, we say.

Yeah… we’re… going to just… walk over there. 2013 MTV Video Music Awards - ArrivalsBest Minimalism

While we weren’t crazy about Crystal Reed‘s stale-looking peplum dress, we love a lady who forgoes the piles of extensions and false lashes. Reed looks great with hair pulled back, fresh skin, a little gloss, a little mascara. Nice work. 2013 MTV Video Music Awards - ArrivalsWorst Lipstick

Nude lips are tricky. This is why. 2013 MTV Video Music Awards - ArrivalsBest Blush

Really like the peach on Holland Roden. 2013 MTV Video Music Awards - BackstageWorst Tongue

    Whoa, seriously, Lady Gaga’s butt looks amazing. My first thought was just DAAAAAMN.

    • amazed

      RIGHT? Normally I am indifferent to butts but that stopped me in my scrolling tracks.

  • Katy Hearne

    ohmygawd, y’all. I love Lady Gaga’s crazy blonde mermaid hair. And also- how drunk would you have to be to hang out in that outfit all night? I’m saying at least 4 margaritas.
    Also- why is Miley’s tongue always out? Always always?

    • Brianna

      Always out!!! It’s disturbing.
