We do like our red carpets dripping with luxe fabric and ostentatious sparkle. But sometimes it’s good to see our younger stars shaving a few years off their wardrobes and having a bit of fun.
And that’s exactly what we got at the red carpeted street party known as the MuchMusic Video Awards. The event took place in Toronto, but evidently many attendees were confused about whether that was a city in Canada, or a lavish supper club in Miami.
We’ll start with the good. Taylor Swift continued her red carpet domination in a sexy Hervé Léger bandage dress. Swift took home the Fave International Artist of the Year award, and also wins for person we hope never to be photographed standing next to. Demi Lovato also looked great in a black Saint Laurent mini dress and matching pumps, though both girls could have benefitted from a little more (or less?) hair product. We also love Shay Mitchell in balls-out neoprene Clover Canyon.
The not-so-good? Brittany Snow was uninspiring in an ALICE by Temperley gown that could have been from Hot Topic, where she might have seen Avril Lavigne digging around in the bargain bin for her ridiculous spiked crown. And Nicole Arbour dressed as a stripper coming out of a giant cake, but we’ll pretend this has something to do with her being a comedian.
