The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Featuring The Highest Slits We've Ever Seen

It’s that time of year again, folks! That wonderful evening where every musically-inclined human being in the industry gets their absolutely weirdest on the red carpet and off. We are, of course, talking about the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, which we liveblogged earlier to bring you up-to-the-minute coverage of music’s most bizarre night. We already covered the best dressed, so now, it’s time to narrow down the worst dressed list, from the tackiest to the most disappointing to the just plain naked-est.

Keep scrolling down to see all the least loved looks of the night from celebrities like Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and more!

Becky G

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsSo Becky G just wore a pushup bra, which is actually fairly unsurprising given that this is the VMAs, but her skirt has a slit so high that it essentially just makes this a sparkly beach coverup.

Ariana Grande

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsGirl looks like she’s wearing a sexy police costume from Leg Avenue. Except it’s by Moschino, making it possibly the most expensive item on the red carpet to take cues from Abercrombie & Fitch by splashing its label all over the place.

Taylor Swift

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsTaylor Swift wore a Mary Katrantzou leotard to the VMAs. If this were just a couple inches longer I would say it qualifies as a romper, but instead of looking like a cool and modern one-piece, it winds up looking like a long-sleeve swimsuit for a circus performer.

Kim Kardashian

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Featuring The Highest Slits We've Ever SeenSome vindictive stylist played a cruel joke on Kim Kardashian by telling her that shoulder pads and couch upholstery featured on this Balmain number are totally in for fall.

Jennifer Lopez

503898509TM00170_2014_MTV_VJ. Lo, what is going on here? It’s like a rhythmic dance teacher got really into BDSM all of a sudden with this Charbel Zoe.

Charli XCX

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsTony the Tiger was murdered by Jeremy Scott x Moschino in order to clothe Charlie XCX for the evening.

Amber Rose

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI wanted to like this, I really did, but I think this Laura Dewitt piece is one of those looks that not even Amber Rose can pull off. It’s similar to Rose McGowan‘s infamous VMAs dress, but I didn’t like the look then and I don’t dig it now. Her makeup is on point, though.

Austin Mahone

Usher

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Worst Dressed List, Starring Katy Perry & Riff Raff's Matching DenimWe love you, Usher, but we wish you would have found a tailor prior to the VMAs.

Julianne Hough

486797191TM00156_2014_MTV_VAs Heather mentioned earlier, it looks like Julianne’s Emilio Pucci dress is just coming apart.

Gwen Stefani

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI am bummed out to say that Gwen showed up in a look by L.A.M.B. that gets a resounding “meh.”

Click to the next page to see the awfulness of Katy Perry, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and of course, Chris Brown.

Chris Brown

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Worst Dressed List, Starring Katy Perry & Riff Raff's Matching DenimWhile I admittedly will never put Chris Brown on any best dressed list (or “actual human beings” list) ever regardless, this outfit truly deserves a spot on the worst roundup. Nobody has ever looked good with that much cloth around their waists besides Hey Arnold and Alex Mack. Just sayin’.

Kendall Jenner

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Featuring The Highest Slits We've Ever SeenI think my 14-year-old self would have drawn this Alon Livne outfit had somebody asked me what “sexy date style” looks like.

Kylie Jenner

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Featuring The Highest Slits We've Ever SeenI almost liked Kylie’s Alexandre Vauthier look, and I think I would have had it been slightly more form-fitting and less slouchy–a quality that makes it resemble a trash bag. Also, not to sound like somebody’s grandmother (and obviously I do not think teenagers need to “cover up” for any social reasons, per se), but gosh that is a high slit on a girl who just turned 17.

Iggy Azalea

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsIggy’s look is a space-inspired version of your eleventh grade prom dress, if your prom dress was by Atelier Versace.

5 Seconds Of Summer

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsI know their hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of fans would beg to disagree, but god, these guys look stupid.

Katy Perry and Riff Raff

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Worst Dressed List, Starring Katy Perry & Riff Raff's Matching DenimTHEY MATCHED. WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS. WHAT IS GOING ON. I FEEL SCARED.

Rita Ora

The Worst Dressed At The 2014 MTV Video Music AwardsWe love your style, Rita, but why is everyone wearing thigh slits up to their waists? They cease to be thigh slits at that point and instead become just look like a fifth grader took scissors to a nightgown, even on this Donna Karan Atelier number.
