The possibility of stand-out music performances is only dwarfed by the potential outrageousness of fashion choices on each year’s Video Music Awards. The 2017 VMA’s didn’t disappoint where celebrity couture was concerned. With host Katy Perry leading the way with an array of different outfits and stylings herself (she changed into 9 different outfits), viewers did catch a wide variety of known designers dressing equally known celebs.
There was Demi Lovato in a sheer Zuhair Murad. Her body suit had strategically-placed lace cuts outs and she wore embroidered harem pants to match. Alessandra Ambrosio wore a full Balmain ensemble that included a mini, lace-up pants and what seemed like shoes worked in to the pants. Lorde strutted in a purple-feathered Monique Lhuillier. Tyler Posey kept his style simple wearing a black T-shirt, black jeans, brown boots and an olive green short-sleeved button-down.
The best dressed for the night? Pink’s family-Carey Hart and daughter Willow Hart-all wore suits. While closest to our latex heart, walking in, Nicki Minaj wore a pink latex bodysuit (which she is now getting lots of flack about). Later on, when stealing the show from Katy Perry she changed up her outfit.
As for host Katy Perry and her nine changes? She walked in wearing a Stephane Rollan’s white dress, and hit the stage for the opening of the show in a nod back to MTV’s spaceman in her own space suit. Couture styles that followed included K.P. in a glittery/gauzy not-all-that-interesting jumpsuit. She also wore a blue sheath dress holding a baby doll. In a nod to her latest release “Swish, Swish” she wiggled into a sequined tiger-striped dress. Then changing up her hair as well as costume, the hostess-with-the-most, next sported a straight blonde wig while wearing a strapless Halpern with a bird print. And paying homage to Game of Thrones, Perry appeared a Daenerys Targaryen, complete with her own dragon (dog).
Perry ended the 2017 VMA’s with a performance “Swish, Swish” wearing a basketball bustier over a white dress…where Nicki M. joined her.
