VMAs 2012- Best Dressed

Maria Menouos in Kymerah- She showed some flair with one of the three black leather dresses of the evening– but the only one with a circle skirt. The look proved leather can be ladylike while the bustier top showed off her sexier side. With straight hair and a matching clutch she looked ready to take on the red carpet.

Taylor Swift in J. Mendel- Finally branching out in a sexy white pants suit, Taylor looked grown-up and chic. She kept the neckline clean with a sliver of deep cleavage and let the jewels dangle only from her earlobes. Because of the single color she was able to play up her face with a crimson lipstick and smoky brown eyeliner. The ensemble was paired with gladiator gold sandals which made the outfit less business and more rock n’ roll.

Shaun Robinson- I haven’t seen much of Shaun Robinson, but when I typed her name into Google a slew of gorgeous dresses turned up. Her outfit was neither too provocative nor too basic. The jewel covered dress in the complementary peacock color sparkled during interviews. The picture of her is the one on top and from the MTV website.

Amy Paffrath in Agua Dulce- It’s hard to resist a neon lemon dress with rose lace detailing. Instead of an obvious sweetheart neckline the dress formed a point on one side and a line between the bodice and skirt as extra details of interest. She kept the focus on the bright dress with black accessories.

Rihanna in Adam Selman- The Barbados born babe kept it clean in a white, backless number. Although it was a full-length dress, she kept it VMAs appropriate with the knot at the hip like a sarong. The dress also had cute tie accents on the back of both mismatched sleeves.Now with a very close cropped cut she proves no hairstyle or shade is off limits.
