The 2013 American Music Awards were held at the Nokia Theatre in LA last night. Just like the performances, some of the fashion was HOT & COLD. Let’s take a look at my choices for best & worst dressed.

BEST:

M. CYRUS

Miley Cyrus in a Versace pantsuit. It was nice to see her in something so subtle for a change.

CIARA

Ciara in a see thru J. Mendel dress.

T SWIFT

Taylor Swift in a gold mini from Julien MacDonald.

Who was your Favorite Fashion DO & Worst Fashion DON’T?!

Lorde – Royal

Seriously…. that voice belongs to a 16 year old girl?? Amazing.

MTV’s Video Music Awards took place last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. There was good,  there was bad and then there was Miley. What a 180 from the Miley Cyrus the world saw through her spread with Harper’s Bazaar for the September issue. Her performance was, as she would like to say, ratchet. She twerked it out all over Robin Thicke and was really loving that foam hand and those strange teddy bears. It was shocking, raunchy and very awkward.

Here’s some advice Miley… start keeping your tongue in your mouth.

Now onto my favorite performances and outfits of the night:

N SYNC REUNION!

Do I even have to say anything about this?? Even if they were on for about 30 seconds it was such a huge highlight for the night and Justin Timberlake’s medley was by far the best performance of the night.

Ciara in Givenchy

DK

Danity Kane… all of them and all of those outfits – head to toe – are fabulous!

Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace

coco

Coco Rocha wearing an incredible embellished  Fausto Puglisi jacket.

rita

Rita Ora in Alexandre Vauthier Couture

 This dress is too stunning not to be on a Best Dressed list but it was too ‘Oscary’ for the MTV VMA’s. Also, this isn’t really her style – I would expect this gown on Beyoncé.

joan

Joan Smalls in Viktor & Rolf

Nervo

Everything about Nervos’ outfit choices is amazing!

Some of the WORST dressed in my opinion were:

rif raff

Riff Raff in…. who cares. EW! He’s always dressed terrible, so I expected nothing less than HOT MESS.

smiths

Someone get Willow & Jaden Smith a stylist!

foxy

Foxy Brown. No.

Mark Romanek directed all 6 hours of Jay Z’s LIVE “Art Performance” of Picasso Baby at the Chelsea Pace Gallery in July and transformed it into this amazing 10 minute short film. I think the whole concept of turning a track into this performance piece is iconic and is something that is not frequently done in the Hip Hop culture. Some say it’s him selling out others think the song in general portrays him as arrogant and pompous. I personally think this vide shows a whole different side of Jay Z that not many people may see and I can only imagine how enjoyable it was to be a part of something like this. The gallery was open to all and through out this 6 hour performance Jay Z interacted directed with the crowd. Many of the people featured in the video were regular people who were picked from the crowd after being asked by him If anyone had any special talents.

What do you think about this video?
