The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsWelcome to the best dressed list of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards! This year, there were lots of surprisingly tame yet incredibly sexy looks from the likes of all the stars you love (and love to hate), as well as several risks that totally paid off. Entertainer such as Kesha, Solange and Miley Cyrus (yes, really!) looked positively stunning gliding across the red carpet in their individual looks. Who else made the cut?

Ireland Baldwin and Angel Haze

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsIreland (in a Roberto Cavalli and Paul Andrews pumps) and Angel (in a Helmut Lang blazer and Raf Simons top) killed it early on upon the red carpet–and they showed up holding hands, which makes the 2014 VMAs already cuter than the 2013 ones.

Kesha

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsOne of our favorite celebrities looked beautiful on the red carpet in a long white studded Johanna Johnson gown and wow, she looks breathtaking. The beautiful neutral-toned dress only accentuates her fantastic rainbow hair.

Kelly Rowland

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsKelly Rowland makes Kaufmanfranco maternity wear look like pure goddess wear.

Laverne Cox

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsIs anybody surprised that this stunner made the best dressed list? This sparkly blue number with an asymmetrical hemline by Marc Bouwer just screams VMAs. Also, I must’ve missed when she got bangs because wow, those look excellent.

Mary Lambert

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI want to own Mary Lambert’s pretty City Chic floral dress so I can wear it until it snows.

Jessie J

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI initially didn’t love this look but the more I stare at it, the better it gets. The vintage Halston number is perfectly draped, it’s a beautiful color, and it’s got that playful sexiness that the VMAs tend to embody. Oh, and it looks like she didn’t wear a bra, which is awesome.

Lucy Hale

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsWow, Lucy Hale looks amazing in a tight leather Sachin + Babi crop top and Zimmerman full floral patterned skirt. We often love her style, but this is so perfect for her.

Nicki Minaj

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI’m totally loving this Saint Laurent dress on Nicki. Even though it is simple (well, for her it’s simple), it is sexy and totally fits her style. She’s got that old Hollywood glamour with her hair and makeup, but that 2014 modernity in her sparkly dress.

Solange

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI’m a sucker for a good menswear look (this one’s by H&M Studio Collection).

Jason Derulo

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsSpeaking of good menswear, can somebody hook me up on a date with Jason Derulo? Just sayin’. And also he looked really good in this white Gentlemen Collection by David Thomas suit, blahblahblah. And of course Jordin Sparks looks stunning, too, in a Simply Intricate dress and Stuart Weitzman heels.

Demi Lovato

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI love, love Demi Lovato’s Lanvin dress. Yes, it’s revealing and I guarantee people will say she should’ve worn a bra, but she looks killer IMO, and that bob is spot on.

Darren Criss

Darren Criss VMAs 2014Dear every guy I ever go on a first date with forever: wear this. (BTW, Darren’s suit is by Tom Snyder.)

Chloe Grace Moretz

486797191AB00116_2014_MTV_VI’m so into this cute Louis Vuitton look! It’s very grownup, but we sort of expected that.

Miley Cyrus

The Best Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsSAY WHAAAAAA-?! No, but really, Miley looked VMAs-appropriate in a Alexandre Vauthier Couture tube top and slouchy black pants, and at the very least wins a “Most Improved” award for this look compared to last year’s, ahem, clothing.

      i can’t stop staring at miley’s tan lines. girl. you can fix these things.

      • Samantha Escobar

        Oh god how did I miss those?! Definitely a mentionable thang on the best/worst beauty…

      • Amber

        i love miley but it shows how young she is, for sure. i just want put my arm around her and say, “oh sweetie.. you knew this was coming. we’re better than this.” also because in my fantasies miley and i are BFF with jennifer lawrence and i am their down-to-earth older (25 year old) lady friend.

      • Anne Marie Hawkins

        I guess she styled herself? because any halfway competent stylist would have taken care of that in about 30 seconds.

    • Heather C

      Chloe Grace Moretz does look good, even if it’s not the most VMA-appropriate outfit.

    • Willet

      Dnrren, demi, nicki and Laverne look the best, but solange, kesha and Kelly’s hair are not my fav… I’m not going to hate on Ireland and angel though cuz they’re cute together.

      Chloe Moretz looks really pretty. She also looks like she’s about to head out to the lanai to have some cheesecake with Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia.

      Solange is a hot mess. and WHAT is going on with Kelly Rowland’s hair?
