The 2017 MTV EMAs: More Fashion Questions Than Statements?

Rita Ora 2017 MTV EMAsRita Ora wore a white bathrobe and towel (plus 7.8 mill of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds), on the red carpet to host the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards. The lady was making a joke, like she was asked at the last minute to head the 24th year of the UK celebration. As if she just ran out of the bath, Rita managed a robe and towel around herself and ran over. Ora would come to change into a shorter robe, flick off her heels for sneakers as the show progressed. But the singer/actress wasn’t the only celeb sporting a wild wardrobe for the 2017 MTV EMAs.

There was Demi Lovato shirtless under her Styland suit. Kesha wearing a sequined multicolored jacket, pants and cape with pink hair. Jared Leto also in pink; top, lavender jacket, red Gucci sweat pants and big flower in his lapel. French pop star Petite Meller managed a head-to-toe metallic rainbow dress and top hat. Her dress was also open in the front pretty much all the way up her.

Leading with a wonderfully embroidered jacket and the same color pink high-waisted pants, Sofia Reyes took a page from Lovato (though she was wearing a bra at least) to bare her torso under jacket. And James Bay as much revealed his new shorter haircut, as an oversized polka-dot blouse.

UK Rapper Stefflon Don might get the best or worst of the night, depending on your tastes. She wore a red bikini top overflowing with her wonderful self, black pants, knee high red boots, and a black-and-red furry coat.

Wearing an outfit not so wild, but certainly something we can celebrate. “Game of Thrones” Nathalie Emmanuel, wore a black blouse, ankle-length boots and body-hugging latex pants. At least one celeb wore our favorite material.

The 24th Annual MTV EMAs were held at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley last Sunday.

Our Fickle Fashion Fascination With The 2015 Golden Globes

Golden-Globes-2015-750x400Once again Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted (though three times a charm for the ladies, they are not returning next year) and we watched Hollywood elite in TV and movies honor themselves at The 2015 Golden Globes. The over three hour show was, as always, a self congratulatory fest of some entertaining moments, some badly written nominee speech patter and thank you’s that went on too long. But most of all, on the red carpet prior to the broadcast, across Twitter feeds during and certainly commented upon after the show (and will be commented upon well into this week) was the fashion commentary of what (and often why) our celebrities were wearing.

Actress Perrey Reeves wore the same crushed velvet dress she wore the first time she attended the Globes in 1992. The lady’s HBO series “Entourage” is making its own comeback-on the big screen-in June and less that she had the audacity to wear something so ‘old’ shouldn’t bloggers be celebrating that the woman still has the bod to fit into a dress over 20 year old?

Then there was brouhaha of Catherine Zeta Jones supposedly dressing/looking like that faceless red-dressed cell phone Emoji we all know and love. Intentional or not, we ignore the fact that the lady looked stunning.

Of course the male celebrities get off easy. They simply don tuxes and are good to go. All anyone can remark over is Matthew McConaughey’s full beard or once again the style with which Jared Leto wore his long hair. And speaking of an abundance of facial hair, drag queen Conchita Wurst (who is actually Austrian singer Thomas “Tom” Neuwirth) sported a full dark beard while strutting perfectly pretty in a long green gown.

Maybe Wurst/Neuwirth has it right after all. The red carpet, show, these bogs post the show are all spectacle. If one takes the fashions, the comments about them, and the attention over them too seriously one will always come up disappointed that maybe things, in the end, aren’t supposed to be taken so seriously at the 2015 Golden Globes or any other Hollywood see-and-be-scene.
