The awards shows continued last right with the 2016 MTV EMAs. We recently had the 2016 CMA Awards, but the EMAs are a different sort of show entirely. The EMAs are known for wild looks just like the MTV VMAs. The 2016 EMAs in the Netherlands lived up to expectations. There were a lot of wild and very naked looks. However, there were also some stunning looks. And then there were others that managed to fit into all of the different categories.
Take a look at the best and worst-dressed celebrities at the 2016 MTV EMAs:
1. Nina Dobrev
Nina Dobrev brought some major glamour to the red carpet with this lilac dress. Her coordinating belt and simple silver accessories were also on point. Ditto for her hair and makeup.
2. Winnie Harlow
Winnie Harlow was one of the celebs who got the balance of wild, fashionable and elegant right. This shimmering black lace dress is sexy and chic. It was also great that she styled it with easy hair and a black smokey eye.
3. Charli XCX
Is Charli XCX’s pink outfit with oversized paillettes wild? Yes. Is it in keeping with her style? Yup. Is it right for the EMAs? Absolutely. This is what you expect from Charli and from the EMAs. This isn’t the Oscars so celebrities can really go for it on the red carpet. Charli’x co-ords and pink fur jacket are how to do it right.
4. Laura Whitmore
Laura Whitmore opted for a short dress that was packed with plenty of detail. Everything looks perfect from her glossy waves to the fit of the dress to her platform sandals. There’s a lot going on in the dress yet it somehow has an effortless feel.
5. Bebe Rexha
This is how you make a LBD stand out on the red carpet. Bebe Rexha’s dress is mixing sheer panels with sparkles and thick zipper closure. Can we also take a moment to appreciate the fit of her gown? It is tailored to flatter every curve.
6. Jourdan Dunn
It is not easy to wear exposed nipple pasties on the red carpet and not end up on a worst-dressed list. Supermodel Jourdan Dunn managed to do it. She coordinated her pasties and her underwear with her sheer gown so she had a naked but not too naked look. The arm and upper thigh cutouts are different than the ones we normally see.
1. Elettra Lamborghini
Elettra Lamborgini may be wearing a jumpsuit, but there isn’t much too it. The only thing covering up the back is a black seam. Unlike Jourdan Dunn, she failed to make her sparkly glitter nipple pasties work.
2. Charlotte Dawson
If your nude dress matches your skin too closely, you end up looking naked. This might have been Charlotte Dawson’s intention but the textured fabric with sparkles has a scale-like vibe. Also, who wants to look naked save for some random lace patches and a black train?
3. Chloe Ferry
Chloe Ferry’s sheer lace dress with bra and high-waisted panties wasn’t that bad from the front. However, when she turned around to the back, you realized that she’s rocking a thong. The “surprise” in the back doesn’t work with the rest of the dress.
4. Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone had all the elements of a great look here, but it was the proportions that threw everything off. The earrings are a touch too long, the crop top is too big, the belt is too thick and the skirt is a bit too billowy. If her earrings were trimmed to hit just at the top of her shoulders and the crop top was turned into a bodice, this could have made the best-dressed list.
