Miley Cyrus in Alexandre Vauthier at the VMAs: tired or awesome?

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus had her big vindicating moment at last night’s VMAs. After last year’s tweark attack, I hoped MTV would let Miley fade into the background. MTV loves Miley though, so she won Video of the Year for “Wrecking Ball.” Sigh. Miley did an amazing thing though. She allowed her mystery date, a man named Jesse, to use her acceptance speech to talk about his experience as a homeless person in LA. Miley’s eyes filled with tears as Jesse admitted, “I’ve been an extra in your movies, I’ve been an extra in your lives.” It was a touching moment, and good on Miley for bringing awareness to a subject that people prefer to ignore.

Miley’s outfit was shockingly appropriate for the occasion. She wore black leather Alexandre Vauthier couture. Is Miley one of the only people who can pull off a tube top? Maybe so. I like this outfit from top to bottom. The leather’s a bit scuffed up, but Miley may have done that on purpose.

Amber Rose wore Laurel DeWitt in what can only be described as an homage to Rose McGowan’s 1998 booty dress. What’s sad is that I prefer Amber’s beg for red carpet attention better than her wedding dress. Amber does have the confidence and the body to pull off a dress like this. Such a revealing look feels natural for Amber. She walked the red carpet with Wiz Khalifa, who rolled out of bed and grabbed the nearest white t-shirt.

Demi Lovato dressed boldly in a beautiful red Lanvin gown. This dress is gorgeous, and Demi looks fantastic. I see this dress as a sign of Demi’s emotional maturation. The only thing wrong? The VMAs are much less formal. I would have saved this dress for an event like the Grammys.

Ireland Baldwin made her red carpet debut with rapper Angel Haze. I never realized until now how much taller Ireland is than Angel! Angel has a strong stage presence, so I expected her to be taller. Ireland wore Roberto Cavalli. This dress looked flapperish and fun, but the bodice was very ill-fitting. Angel wore Helmut Lang, which looked like her everyday uniform.

    Miley looks really good here, I’m really shocked by how much I like her look. I do think it was really sweet what she did so I’m not gonna throw shade.

    • V4Real says:

      Miley just proved that the VMA’s informs the singers if they have won in advance. She had that stunt (though a good one) already planned out and ready to go.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        She was nominated though, so that could be why she was ready.

      • Sofiel67 says:

        Adding to the proof that it was planned, I watched the audience feed during the vma broadcast and watched her put her purse down and say “ok here we go” to Jesse before Jimmy Fallon even started talking. She knew she wld win, as I am sure most people do.

      • BB says:

        IT’s TV…nothing is real and everything is planned out. Anyone that thinks differently is easily fooled.

      • Sooloo says:

        I was wondering what she meant on the red carpet when she said she had something special planned but she didn’t want to specify because she didn’t want it to get cut. I thought she’d be performing and planned to surprise the audience by doing something non-raunchy for a change but the only time we saw her was during that award. So yeah, she totally knew in advance the moonman was hers.

      • Camille (The Original) says:

        She really is a terrible actress. Her ‘ crying performance’ ruined what could have been a genuinely good thing.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      +1 I really wish I had the body type that looked good in that style of pants.

      @V4Real You make an interesting point.

      • JudyK says:

        V4Real, exactly my thoughts. Of course, it was pre-planned (had to be) and of course it was done to change her image, but, like Dani2 said, I’m not going to throw shade because it was for a worthy cause.

        Also, Miley looks absolutely stunningly beautiful here from her hair to her adorable outfit (what a body) to those shoes which are to die for. She looks adorable.

    • ray says:

      honestly she is probably my fave look of the night

  2. Jayna says:

    Demi looked fantastic, the best she’s looked in years.

    MIley stayed true to her own fashion sense and didn’t come off try-hardy. I thought she looked good.

    • please says:

      try hardy is the definition of Miley Cyrus

    • MCraw says:

      I feel like Demi needs to stop with the cleavage. It just…. Doesn’t look good. I’d always wear a high neck or a bra to push my girls together, otherwise… No.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    Awesome. And perfect for the VMAs.

  4. Jenns says:

    Miley looks great here. Mostly because she isn’t sticking out her tongue.

  5. QQ says:

    Ireland and Angel look so cute together

    So do Amber and Wiz ( that body… for God’s Sake🙏)

    It pains me to say it but this twatwaffle Cyrus looks good… Super good.. This isnt something we can say with any frequency

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      So many pictures of wonky boobs….It’s as if everyone’s boobs decided they finally had enough of this sh*t and are going to escape.

      Miley looks awesome and Angel Haze is AMAZING.

      • Rae says:

        Yikes! It’s nice to see women showing off their non-cosmetically enhanced assets, but don’t they understand natural boobs need a little support??

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        You reminded me that I should keep my mouth shut about stuff like that and you’re right—wonky REAL boobs are still a million times better than fake boobies and it’s nice to see that “real” seems to be “in” these days.

        I think they just need a contraption to best showcase them….maybe more tape? Eh..I don’t know. With the exception of the occasional sweetheart-neck top, I rarely show my gals off so I’m a bit out-of-depth when it comes to boob advice.

      • QQ says:

        #SaveTheWonkyBoobs Ya’ll


      • Rae says:

        I’m still trying to figure out why Ireland Baldwin’s boobs are in her armpits. I mean, mine end up in my armpits, too. But only when I’m laying down. And I’m 35. 35 yr old boobs just don’t stay where they’re supposed to.

      • Mixtape says:

        @TheOriginalKitten — such a contraption already exists. It’s called a bra.

  6. Anna says:

    I don’t think that was the nearest white shirt for Wiz, I heard it was supposed to bring awareness (if people read the shirt and what it says).
    I liked Amber’s outfit, I thought it was fun and very old-fashioned MTV VMAS

    • Kiddo says:

      Yeah, it was a shirt about suicide, as best as I can see/read it.

    • Christin says:

      Clearly Wiz khalifa’s shirt was not random. It’s providing awareness to suicide and prevention and I think it’s great even if it’s not very “fashionable”. I don’t see how this was so easily dismissed. Good for him!!

  7. Jackson says:

    No complaints on Miley. It all worked.

  8. GiGi says:

    Miley’s outfit was great, but aside from that… she looks healthy. Maybe she’s laying off the coke?

    Amber Rose & Wiz look just how you’d expect them to look.

    Demi looked alright – I think her dress is too open… not too low, just too wide. It’s unflattering on top.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Just when I thought VMA boobs weren’t going to get any weirder, I scrolled down from Amber Rose to Demi Lovato…and then on to Ireland…the boob on the left needs its own bra.

  9. Kiddo says:

    Miley looks really cute.

  10. Hissyfit says:

    Miley looks great! She pulled it off very well!

    I got embarrassed when Demi shamelessly promoted her concert tour on stage as they presented Maroon 5 – very awkward.

  11. bettyrose says:

    Miley aside, it’s nice to see curvy women rockin’ some nearly naked fashions. I hated every look here, but I love the diversity of body types.

  12. eliza says:

    I think they all look pretty bad. : (

  13. s says:

    Miley looks fab. Love her shoes. She looks happy and chilled. Nice to see.

  14. Mia4S says:

    However she looked, Miley’s gesture rang a little false for me. I don’t doubt she believes in the cause (most do!) but going up on stage and weeping while he spoke? Ugh.She always half-asses these “shocking” moments and rips off her betters. Brando’s Oscar moment? He never showed his face and the issue was worthy and controversial. This just seemed…convenient.

    • boredbrit says:

      That girl accepting Brando’s Oscar was the best thing ever.

    • Steph says:

      Agreed. I think she watched the punk singer on Netflix and is trying to be the new Kathleen Hanna (who was dating Ad-Rock when the Beastie boys gave their “don’t rape girls” speech at the VMAs). Miley’s fake cry face was distracting.

    • Josephine says:

      I think the real problem is that she chose a guy who is homeless because he’s trying to make it as a model/actor. He did not grow up homeless, and isn’t without education and skills. She chose a pretty face but didn’t get a good representative of the homeless situation. Homeless youth largely come from broken homes, experience abuse, get hooked on drugs, have mental health issues. Those are the homeless that everyone wants to ignore, but they need the help the most.

  15. Jag says:

    That is the best Miley has ever looked, imo.

    Amber looks try-hard, but still good.

    Demi’s dress is gorgeous but I can’t stand her hair.

  16. sisi says:

    Meh… Both Demi and Ireland could’ve benefitted from a bra or a more supporting garment imo.

    Miley looked great for the occasion. She seemed very comfortable in her outfit, something not many other attending ladies seemed to be sadly. Exuding confidence without trying adds to the coolness factor of a celeb imo. Kinda reminded me of Rihanna in jeans and a t-shirt last year in that way.
    Trust me, I never expected I’d say this about Miley XD

  17. InvaderTak says:

    The dress the Baldwin girl is wearing is awful. Her boob is trying to escape and it’s being unmercifully smashed down by the dress strap. Awful awful awful. Miley iis tolerable. Demi looks try hard to me (it’s the vmas for Pete’s sake) but Maybe I’m grumpy.

  18. GlimmerBunny says:

    Ugh, call me cynical but I HATED Miley’s “emotional” face every time the camera panned to her while her date was doing his speech. It just seemed like bad acting to me.

    • Clever hand says:

      Yes! My husband is pretty uninformed about celeb culture and knows next to nothing about what Miley has been up to for the last year but even he called it as a fake ploy to look more sympathetic and said her acting was too much.

      But….I’ll take that over more twerking any day.

    • Nicolette says:

      Me too, an it reminded me of a child trying desperately to work up some tears. While it is a good cause to bring attention to, my cynicism makes me think it was more about bringing attention to Miley.

      @Clever hand, agree I’ll take the bad acting over twerking any day as well.

  19. L. says:

    Miley looks great. …One question… where is YES LIV CAN? You know the raper that made the “Sorry MRS. Carter” video. Shouldn’t she be at an event like this? LOL

  20. smee says:

    Why is leather always the go-to fabric to look edgy? It has no place in an LA summer, that’s for sure. So bulky. Never really looks that good, imo

  21. Stef Leppard says:

    Miley: Zzzzzzz 😴
    Amber: Oh, honey, no

  22. please says:

    Justin in drag period

  23. serena says:

    Miley looked amazing! So glad she was appropriate this time (I have enough of her stunts), while I don’t like the other outfits that much, too boobtastic. Also, stop with the half shaved head, Demi! Enough of that trend!

  24. Sarah says:

    All these folks who think Demi looked good….I don’t get it. Her boobs look wonky and she looks like a wax figure. Way too much foundation or something. She’s like wax who has sat in the sun a bit – shiny and looks like she’s going to melt. I do like the dress and bag though.

  25. mytbean says:

    Let me get this straight… the bodice is wrong for Iris but the bodice for Demi looks good? And, if you have the body for it, it’s fine to walk around in a string of chains ala Amber? What the… I need to just go to bed and try to sleep through this one because it’s not getting better.

  26. kri says:

    Demi L looked lovely. It hurts my fingers/brain to type this but Miley looked really good. I love Ireland’s dress just wish thatt he fit was better up top.

  27. aquarius64 says:

    Miley looks surprising good. I think it’s in response to her “ban” in the Dominican Republic and her people sat her down and told her to change her image or be dismissed in music history as the Joke of the 2013 VMAs. The award is a starting point.

    Amber Rose – I wouldn’t want to sit in the chair she last sat in, “wearing” that.

  28. Josefa says:

    I just love Amber and Wiz. They seem like so much fun to be with.

  29. Kathryn says:

    Two things:
    1.) If Miley Cyrus wore Amber Rose’s dress the entire world would be freaking out and calling her a sl*t and a wh*re. But Amber wore it so it’s “expected” and “looks great”
    2.) If Beyonce made the same acceptance speech with the homeless teen to bring attention to a great cause the headline would be “Beyonce gives best acceptance speech ever: amazing?” or some other sh*t.

    I know we all pick favorite celebrities to rag on and to love but it’s honestly kind of ridiculous that if we take the same action (or outfit) and apply it to someone else, it becomes acceptable or loathsome.

    • Sooloo says:

      1 – Er, I haven’t heard too many people saying Amber looked good in that get-up…

      2 – Oh please…people think EVERYTHING about Beyonce is fake and contrived. There would be no less crap thrown her way if she made a speech about homeless teens or any other social cause.

  30. Vl says:

    Miley looks good.
    Demi’s cleavage is horrible.

  31. Dommy Dearest says:

    The guy isn’t even homeless.
