MTV Video Music Awards Page 1
This was the week Kim Kardashian allowed her wedding dress to get knocked off, Muslim women got knocked out at an amusement park, and a 3-year-old girl wore fake boobs and got lauded for it. Also, some designers pushed back their collections because of the hurricane, and Tavi Gevinson announced a launch date for Rookie.
Everyone knows that an MTV red carpet is an excuse to let a little loose, take a few risks, and up the sartorial ante. And that’s why they’re so entertaining! But there’s a fine line between creative and flat out crazy — and last night things went a little haywire. When Gaga-in-Drag looks refreshingly normal, you know there’s a problem.
We were first introduced to Jo Calderone over a year ago, when images of him began “leaking” on to SHOWStudio.com. And it turns out that good old Jo has been part of the bigger Gaga picture for a long, long time. Earlier this month, Jo made a comeback as the cover for Gaga’s latest single, “Yoü & I”, which is why it makes sense, ish, that she would open the 2011 VMAs in full on drag.
Back in 2009, Lady Gaga made her inaugural appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards, where she arrived with Kermit the Frog as her date and closed the show in a red lace ensemble and bleeding from one eyeball. This year, the mother monster is scheduled to open the August 28th awards, which means undoubtedly that we are in for a strange, sartorially inspired treat. Behold: the promo.
If you couldn’t tell from our liveblog, the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet was kind of a mess. Not only was it not red (it was white), but it was poorly organized and, generally speaking, poorly dressed. But because we never turn down an excuse for a
red white carpet round-up, here it is. From Katy Perry to Ke$ha, Justin Bieber to Jared Leto, this is what they wore.
