Best and Worst dressed at 2021 VMAs

Best and Worst dressed at 2021 VMAs

The 2021 MTV VMAs was definitely one to remember with amazing performances by Doja Cat, Machine Gun Kelly, Ed Sheeran and lots more. There has been a long history of courageous fashion decisions at the VMAs. From Lady Gaga’s meat dress in 2010 to Lil’ Kim’s feathery ensemble in 2019. I’m here to discuss the best and worst dressed celebs that attended this year.

Starting off the best dressed list is Doja Cat. She served us multiple looks throughout the night and all 3 were pretty memorable. This specific one is my personal favorite. This outfit was designed by Vivianne Westwood. I love the hair and shoes. The colors of her dress compliment her skin very well. Although, the necklace and earrings are a bit too much together and I think the look could have done without one or the other. 

Second, Lil Nas X never disappoints when it comes to red carpets.  Dressed in Versace, Lil Nas served us an extravagant lavender moment. I love when men give us something more than just a black suit and tie. Lil Nas X is working on breaking boundaries in the fashion industry.

Honestly this couple never disappoints me when it comes to fashion. They always look amazing and this night was no different. Megan wore a nude gown from Mungler accompanied by her boyfriends MGK in Versace. I love that they are never boring with their fashion choices. I’m always very eager to see them at any red carpet.

Now for the worst dressed, Billie Eilish’s look didn’t wow me at all. I feel like I’m getting the same thing from her all the time. And the plain back wasn’t doing it for me. Although I am not sure exactly who she is wearing, usually she works with Gucci so I would not be surprised if this was also a piece from Gucci.

Not that I expected anything from Shawn Mendes at all, but this particular look is definitely on the worst dressed list. He is always showing up in some plain suit that we have all seen before. Shawn plays it safe every time and I would love to get something new from him.

Justin Bieber is always going for that casual and careless look. Sometimes it looks cool and effortless but other times like this it just looks lazy. The hood made it 30x worse in my opinion.
