This is the VMA's, so fashion is going to be all about looking sexy and looking creative. I thought most (in the photos I see today) were in keeping with that. Some just did not hit the mark.
So, Justin Bieber should have lost his glasses, Nicki Minaj should have lost a few of the many, many competing accessories, and Miley Cyrus should have gone short. I saw commentary that the female cast of Jersey Shore were a mess, but honestly they were in keeping with the spirit of the show and themselves, though standing together they were too much. I also saw a negative comment about Ne-Yo but his whole look was great in my eyes.
That is the fun of fashion and especially celebrity fashion for red carpet events. Anything is possible, we all will have opinions and those who seemed to miss the mark will get as much if not more buzz than those that hit it.
I thought the entire show in general was awful, like REALLY bad... Most of the stars looked (and behaved) ridiculously, and the music was arguably even worse, IMO. I enjoyed a couple of performances tho. Adele has an amazing voice and Young the Giant was cool...
