Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Carly Rae Jepsen, Psy, and more attended MTV‘s European Music Awards in Frankfurt, Germany last night. The red carpet looks ran from runway glam to over-the-top excess to some seriously yawn-worthy frocks. Who was best dressed, and who could have dressed better?
Swift looked her usually neutrally-sparkly self in a shimmery, fitted J. Mendel gown with sheer panels. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Keys, who wore a green and black Stella McCartney illusion dress. We’ve seen the style so many times on the red carpet before that it’s almost as ubiquitous as the Herve Leger bandage dress. Isabeli Fontana, meanwhile, debuted a whole new look and sadly, that’s not a compliment. The Victoria’s Secret bombshell wore a studded and fringed jumpsuit with towering platforms — apparently models can’t make everything look good.
As for the show itself, Heidi Klum hosted the carnival-themed show, and wore not one, not two, but eight different Versace looks. Because why not? Half of the outfits were great, and other were, well, very Heidi Klum. Think slits up-to-there and strategically placed cut-outs. Actually, she wore nine outfits, if you count the powder blue blazer and black trousers she wore for her “Gangnam Style” video with Psy.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
