The (Awesomely) Worst Dressed At The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

Here it is, folks: the worst looks from last night’s 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. You may have noticed that our Best Dressed picks were all of seven people. That’s because this year’s ceremony was an unbelievable fashion shitshow. Let’s have a look…

(Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images for MTV)Last night’s red carpet was one of the most naked ever, with sheer dresses and meticulously placed appliques everywhere. It bums us out to see so many women feeling like they have to be naked for whatever reason (we don’t really buy “because I loved these four square inches of mesh imitating a dress!”). Erin Wasson in particular.

Someone needs to remind One Direction what their music sounds like.

And also, that in about 10 years, all of their coordinated outfits will still look just like this–at least ‘NSYNC and the BSB never made Ian Curtis spin in his grave, though.

    I weirdly like Miley’s vintage Dolce and Gabanna. Rita Ora’s makeup was far more tragic than her dress.

  • LynnKell

    And the winner for worst hair in the history of red carpets goes toooooo…… TAYLOR SWIFT!!! *bobby pins massive suicide*

  • Cee

    Since Taylor has spent all her live cultivating this virginal victim of the world persona, its hard to take her seriously when she tries to be sexy or seductive. You just can’t help but giggle and say “come on!”

  • Anonachocolatemousse

    I actually thought Taylor Swift was going to be on your best dressed, mostly because their were crop tops, crop tops everywhere. The rest is right on key though.

    “Someone needs to remind One Direction what their music sounds like.” THIS.

    The ONLY reason I will allow these boys to remain in my life is because they are attractive and British but I at this point, it feels like they are starting to take themselves too seriously and, most definitely, need to be reminded that their music is just dreadful.

  • Amanda

    I actually really like Taylor’s dress

  • Charmless

    I thought Selena Gomez looked fantastic. I’d murder for that bralette because it probably costs more than my rent. The only thing that was iffy for me was the navy, but that’s just because I generally hate navy blue everything. Maybe a flight attendant traumatized me when I was a child. I’d have preferred the entire ensemble in black.

  • Suzyqpie

    I’ll never get this 5.5 minutes of my life back.

  • bigchief

    None of these people add any value to society, what makes American’s so foolish?

    • superjack

      Probably our correct use of the possessive plural.

  • shellymichele

    Selena’s dress is butt ugly!

  • Jayjay

    Oh come on, Taylor Swift’s dress wasn’t that bad, it was the hair and makeup that was off. And one direction looked fine (as in alright not DAMN! YOU FINE!) who cares if one of them’s wearing a t-shirt that reminds everyone of how cool their music will never be? You’re meant to be critiquing how the outfits look, no?
