Amber Rose and Blac Chyna made a strong statement at last night’s VMAs. They wore matching outfits — Amber in a catsuit and Blac Chyna in a low-cut gown — emblazoned with words such as “slut,” “bitch,” “wh*re,” and “golddigger.” They could have been looking for attention (this is MTV, after all), but these outfits also had something to do with Amber’s Slut Walk for feminism.
Amber previously told Entertainment Tonight that she’s had enough of slut shaming: ““I deal with it every day. I deal with it via social media. People out on the street. They don’t quite understand why I post what I post.” This must have also been a sly nod towards Video Vanguard recipient Kanye West, who bragged about needing countless showers after he and Amber broke up. Amber also spoke with MTV last night: “We wanted to paint a picture of what everyone always says about us … They call us sluts and wh*res all the time, and we just embrace it.” The outfits are garish, but that’s purely intentional.
Rita Ora wore Vera Wang last night, and once again, she went for the full-on gown look. Rita loves pulling out the stops, and apparently, she loves feathers too. This dress is far too much, but Rita generally overdresses (and underdresses at the same time) for the event. Rita’s going for the dramatic swan look, perhaps.
Chrissy Teigen wore Marchesa to accompany John Legend to the event. They’re always my favorite couple at any music-related event, but Chrissy looks a little over it here. In her defense, I’d wear this expression along with Marchesa too. Especially since Georgina Chapman designed this dress so that underwear and a bra cannot possibly happen.
Selena Gomez looked mature and in control in a black Calvin Klein dress. Perhaps this selection was a little bit boring, but that made her stand out at the event. She’s moved on from fussy ballerina looks. And I hope she avoided Justin Bieber.
Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian posed together on the red carpet. Kourtney looked comfortable in a neon-red halter pantsuit. I kind of appreciate that she goes her own way with clothing instead of dressing like her sisters. Kylie’s dress was too tight and short, and she was definitely wearing a wig.
Kris Jenner looked like Satan in a black dress. Hey, the devil likes to party! Don’t judge.

It’s like Halloween came early!
Lmao!!!! I literally just spit out my coffee. This awards show is a big embarrassment to music. It’s barely even music anymore and they give awards to the biggest morons out there. The women, if you can even call them that are an INSULT to women. They need to cancel this show asap, along with MTV. I am part of the original MTV generation and all it has done over the years is go waaaaay down hill. What a shame.
Totally agree. I can remember the first video ever broadcast on MTV cause I was WATCHING. The VMA’s are the worst of the worst. And MTV is irrelevant. Which is sad. It used to be at the vanguard of what was in and up and coming in music.
Yowza, if Kylie’s dress got any shorter it would be a belt. I do like the pink jumpsuit, though…and I normally hate Kourtney’s fashion.
I love Selena Gomez’s dress, even if it is a bit sombre for the occasion.
Selena’s looks like an every-day outfit (which is unexpected at the VMAs) but it’s likeable.
I hate Selena’s dress.
I also can not stand John and Chrissy.
I feel like Selena’s dress doesn’t fit her well… it’s like one of those dresses you’d feel self-conscious in. I don’t know.
I keep trying to like John and Chrissy, but she is so over the top sometimes it’s annoying! Now that they’ve been massively validated she should just dress down and look cool, no need to go Beyoncé.
YES! Chrissy is an irritant, totally. Those sheer dresses only belong on a Kartrashian. Pimp Mama looks kind of awful here. So does Kylie LOL. And the other one in the halter – she’s looking a little gaunt in the face.
They were all ughs, even Taylor Swift who I usually think looks good (even if a bit too proper).
I think I liked Amber and Blac Chyna’s outfits best, actually. Fun AND a social message – that’s hard to get!
Kylie needs to show off the ass she just bought!
HOE is a garden tool. Why can’t anyone spell? Especially if you are trying to make a point?!
I think the “hoe” is now the more commonly accepted abbreviation of whore, not “ho”.
So because people can’t spell, an adjustment was made. I can’t wait to see what word is next. 😉
Kylie looks like Blac Chyna now. I guess she is trying to please her “man”.
I see what Amber Is doing and maybe because Is Her I simply dont hate it
I don’t get this movement at all is if she always being called out of her name ,why name it SLUT, or there is suppose to be some sort of irony to it?
I agree. Amber makes it look cool somehow. I don’t hate it on Blac Chyna either actually.
I didn’t realize how much BC resembles Nicki Minaj…did she change something about her face recently or has she always looked like this?
I actually love that hot pink jumpsuit that Kourtney is wearing.
I read somewhere that Amber and Black China are getting a reality show, maybe this is some lowkey promo as well.
Who exactly is Blac Chyna? I at least know she’s Tyga’s ex (sigh) but what does she do? Why am I supposed to be interested in her?
If you don’t want to be slut shamed, don’t be a slut. I’m just saying….Amber Rose and Blac Chyna are famous for what, exactly?
Well, there are plenty of women who are slut shamed, who aren’t sluts. Even if they are why does it matter? These two are called every name in the book because they behave in ways that other people don’t find appropriate, but if they stayed quiet and at home they would still be called names. They can’t win.
Those outfits really miss the mark. Clearly the designer should have added FAME before the “Hoe”.
Eh, IIRC the major rash of slut shaming of Amber started with the Kardashians and Kanye going after her and getting their social media minions to go after her as well. Only started after Amber outed Kim and Kanye as cheaters and then for reading Tyga for filth for taking up with an underage teenager and how sad it was that no one was looking out for Kylie. They climbed on their moral high horses to trash her for her stripper past and how she’s dirty and in no position to talk. I think that says more about how awful they are than anything about her.
Amber admits to her past. She’s upfront that she was 15 and she felt it was the only way to put food on the table and keep a roof over the head for her and the siblings she was left to look after. The best option? No, I doubt she’d say it was the best option either. Ideally she and her siblings would’ve been safe and cared for and that she was given the opportunity to attend high school and be on the way to lots of options in life but that’s not the cards life dealt her. She was 15 and trying to keep her family together and off the streets.
In the Kardashian/Kanye world, when Kim makes millions off of a sex tape of her getting peed on, it’s good business sense and makes her classy. When Amber strips at 15 so she can pay the rent so she and her siblings don’t end up homeless, she’s a dirty slut who can never be “clean” again. I believe they’ve even used that word in reference to Amber as well that she’s dirty and that Kanye had to take dozens of showers to get Amber off him so he could be clean for Kim.
hahah @ muffin. exactly. hi there mysogyny, I see ya!
Amber Rose was shamed for being a 15-year old stripper (obvs, had a difficult childhood) by the Kardashians who have done waaaaay naughtier things as adults, brokered by their demon of a mother.
One person ended up in sex work as a child out of survival and the other did it is a wealthy adult for something as fleeting as fame. I may not agree with everything Amber Rose says/does but I like that she is taking control of the nasty names people call her and is wearing them as bold accessory to slap them over the head with it.
Everything everyone else has said but to add to it, on the broader scheme of things, define what makes one a ‘slut’? In certain cultures you’re a slut for merely checking this website and commenting with such profanity as the word ‘slut’. It’s called sexism, dear. Try not to contribute to it. It’s not cute.
@Sarah: The literal definition of ‘slut’ is ‘a woman who does something sexual that is immoral. Since people have different morals, that could be just about anything. You, your female family members, and your female friends can fit under the definition of ‘slut’ if any of you engaged in sexual activity before your wedding nights or if you aren’t fully covered. In other words, as a woman, you can always be somebody else’s idea of a ‘slut’, since the whole concept is a sexist, prudish social-construct based on opinion (originally male opinion) rather than fact.
I’m going to say to you about sex for pleasure and revealing clothes what I usually say to people who disapprove of gay marriage: If you don’t like it, don’t do it. Just don’t dehumanize other people based on gender and sexuality.
Amber Rose’s “original statement pieces” are actually retro. Rose McGowan did the chain mail dress 1st sans underwear, and Courtney Love & BFF Rosanna Arquette painted ” whore slut” etc on their bodies while wearing matching tiaras with princess dresses. Amber, like Miley, is a fashion plagarizer.
It was CLove and Amanda DeCadenet, but i dont remember them having writing on their bodies…
I happened to like Blac Chyna & Amber’s outfits, but mostly because the thirst is real between them.
Go, go Amber & Blac Chyna gadgets go! Here for the both for them!
At the same time though, i am so over these slit-to-there-no-panties-oooo dresses ala Chrissy Teigen. Not my style at all but i also think they just look so inappropriate.
Can’t get over how much older KYLIE looks compared to Kourtney, the eldest. She looks like a stack of plastic plates. So unnatural.
Kylie always looks awkward when posing on carpets. Love the shoes though.
I know that dress is Balmain, but wth is that weaved boxy thing??! It makes her look awful!! She paid so much for that body and then dresses it like this smh…
Agree with tifzlan on the rest.
kylie is about to melt down and crash/burn in the near future. she has a look in here eyes that seems highly unstable. what she has done to “transform!” her body is so drastic. she needs a STAT psych eval. looking at the other women and then at her really highlights how little personality she ha. chick is very desperate. i cant stand having her gross, photoshopped swim suit picks shoved in my face at every supermarket. she makes the other girls seem so refreshing.
slow clap for kris jenner…
Amber Rose has a gorgeous face and bone structure
BlacChyna is one of the most ridiculous people I’ve ever seen – is it her intention to resemble a caricature with all her fakeness?
I can’t believe how tall Kyle is – or should that be how short Kourteney is? I think Kylie looked gorgeous from the neck up; I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen if she tripped and fell over though – that dress is really struggling to cover her butt as it is!
Chrissy Teigen always looks like a cheap tart to me – she just never, ever looks good no matter what she wears.
I think Blac Chyna is very pretty. If you isolate her face, she’s not a bad looking woman. Why she deigns to wear those wigs and clothes, is beyond me.
If she took the shoes off she’d only be few inches taller than Kourtney
Kourtney is very very short. IIRC she’s below 150.
Kylie and Khlozilla are positively Amazonian next to their short stack sisters Kimmode and The Slow One. I agree…Chrissy is so try hard. That dress is hideous.
OMG you are hilarious! 🙂
yeah if she fell it would be disastrous. what if her wig fell off? ¡yikes!
I’m kinda wishing that happened now. How cruel.
Why does it look like Blac Chyna and Kylie are trying to look like each other facially?
Kris Jenner remains the haggard-looking hosebeast she has always been. Sometimes when I see people with no shame, I can’t help but feel like I wish everyone had as much confidence as they do. It’s like the Charles Bukowski quote, “The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”
Kylie Jenner officially looks older than ALL of her sisters and that is saying a lot since Kourtney is 36-years-old, making her twice Kylie’s age. The amount of makeup on that girl’s face blows my mind… my skin would go absolutely bonkers if I wore even half that. The pictures of her weren’t even taken up close and you can still see that there are layers of product on her face.
Because Kylie is trying to look like her. Everything she has done makes her look like a cross between Kim and Blac Chyna. It’s kind of sad this just turned 18 year old is trying so hard to look like her boyfriend’s ex/baby momma.
I thought I was the only one who saw how similar they looked last night, with the wig.
Interesting enough Kylie started with all the plastic surgery after she got with Tyga who clearly has a type. Kylie is trying her hardest to look like Blac Chyna for sure.
More like she began her transformation when her mother realized the girl could be the next Kim K.
Kim is in her forties, the new one can be exploited for some good 20 years.
Kim is not in her 40s, she is 34.
And I don’t personally think she looks anything like Kim, even with all the cosmetic surgery. I genuinely agree with @Tifygodess and @Meatball that she is trying to morph into Blac Chyna. I think she’s probably one of those immature girls who has some imaginary competition going on with her boyfriend’s ex. We know she stalks Chyna’s Instagram by the fact that she has posted pictures that are supposed to be in response to what Chyna posts, like pictures of her wearing the same tacky watch that Tyga bought for them both. So petty and childish.
You get bonus points for the Bukowski quote. 😉 Well played.
the pic @aren posted wow just wow. LOLZ this is a train wreck and i cant look away even tho i want to!!! is kylie on something because she looks benzo’d out of her mind. i read a long time ago that kim chomps valium on the reg. i could see kylie being on xanax or ativan or something. that how they perfect the dead eye look.
@ Daria I love that you quoted Bukowski. Can I go next?
“Bad taste creates many more millionaires than good taste.” – Case in point, the Kardashian/Jenners!
Kourtney’s face is painful to look at. No one in that family has their original faces. Tragic.
I love Chrissy & John. One of my fave couples.
Kourtney is the only one who DOESN’T look like an alien actually.
Kourtney is the only one who looks “real” and not completely obsessed with her looks.
I would never have the nerve to post the pics she does or wear the things she (Amber) does, but after Kanye’s nasty post-break up comments, I really admire her. She took the high road, didn’t engage in any further name calling. This is an issue that needs more attention! It saddens me to hear my 14 y.o. call other girls “sluts”, and in fact, she’s not permitted to say it in the house. You don’t know their stories, you haven’t walked in their shoes.
100% agree with you!
This is a bit off topic, but it’s always been troubling to me how many women are such Kanye apologists, even after he ruthlessly bashed Amber Rose the way he did. He actually said he had to take 30 showers before Kim would even touch him. That’s not only childish as hell, it’s absolutely disgusting and so trashy that he even said it. He also tried to pull the “you weren’t my first choice anyway” card, as if there are thousands of pictures of him looking absolutely smitten with Amber, and as if he didn’t cry on stage telling his audience how much he regretted losing her and wished he could get her back. He is a petty, gross little man. It’s not cool that he gets a pass.
And she inspired a whole album.
He also sad that Tyga preying on Kylie is “getting in early”.
That interview made me lose any respect I had for Kanye, and I used to like his music.
I don’t care for misogynists.
Yeah, she’s better than me. I would have asked him how many showers he made Kim take after getting peed on by Ray J.
Agreed. I love that they’re taking a stand on this, and it’s sad that sexual bullying, misogyny, and victim-blaming are all learned at early ages. You can’t TELL me that someone who says things like that has a completely healthy, ethical outlook on women and girls, sexuality, men, and sex crimes.
Does your daughter enjoy reading? There are some books on these issues that could help her see what’s wrong with that.
I wish! It’s a struggle to get her to read, but I will certainly look into this. I know there are some good YA books out there that deal with really hard hitting issues, so I need to do some research.
But yeah, especially with all the stories that we hear of girls being attacked while they are passed out–and then horribly ridiculed–I just don’t understand the shaming, which can be worse coming from other girls! If anything, I want to try to get her to understand that things are not always as they appear, and that judgment helps no one.
I’m also so worried about the next few years! She’s so willing to trust and to listen to compliments, and so naïve. (She’s my sweet girl!) I talk to her about parties and older boys’ sweet talk, and the possibility of roofies, and ughhhhh…. It’s just a really sad state of affairs when I often stop and think to myself how lucky I was to get to adulthood unscathed.
After looking at the VMA posts this morning, I think my head will combust if I ever have to do fashion commentary for the VMAs. SO. MUCH. FUG.
I would go crazy. Imagine having to deal with all the attitudes, let alone try and sound interested and smile for hours on end. Hideous. I’d be fired within minutes for asking, “What the hell were you thinking wearing that?!!!”
Rita’s outfit is definitely fug. Chrissy’s outfit could almost look good, but it kind of has this weird-looking “I wore a fancy top but nothing on the bottom” look to it.
This whole mess is my 1980s jr high prom. Inappropriate. Bad colors. Wanna be provocative but missed by a few flattering stitches. Where were Katy Perry and Lady Gaga? Too old at 30 plus?
re Amber Rose and Blac Chyna: the Dixie Chicks did it better.
Kylie looks like Angelica Houston.
That’s insulting to Angelica Houston.
Kylie and Angelica are both attractive. But Angelica carries such a harsh look that only she (and a select few) can pull off. Kylie is too young to even attempt it.
Anjelica Houston has bucket loads of personality, she is interesting, this teen is such a wannabe, they all are wannabes, even when they are “in” and mingling, they are just glorified rap groupies.
So tired of these “look at me I’m naked!” dresses.
Selena looks good.
I actually like Kourtney’s. NEVER would have guessed that was Kylie without the caption. Her face!
Me too. They’re so YAWN, every last one of them. Selena looks beautiful. It’s funny how being covered-up becomes something unique and interesting at these stupid award ceremonies.
Selena is looking good.
Selena looks great. Vanessa Hudgens was my fav though.
I loved the look and what Amber said about it. My favorite of the night. Chyna looks like Barbie, I kind of love it. I would watch a reality show with her and Blac Chyna, I have a feeling it would be hilarious.
Selena’s outfit isn’t horrible but at times it gave her a -is that a baby bump!? look and you could see her nipple covers through it so not her best. As far as the Kardashians , kourtney looked nice but I had to laugh at the Kylie meme comparing her to lord Farquhar from Shrek
Miley is kicking herself that she didn’t wear those. Good thing she did not because she would not have worn them well.
These two women do, and I mean that completely without snark. They look fabulous and they have the street cred to pull it off.
What is Blac Chyna doing in that pic with Kourtney?
I’m loving this comment.
i Just went back up and looked at the pictures after reading this comment and yikes…Kylie really does resembled Blac now. Whaaaaaat?
Kourtney looks good. Chrissy’s dress is B A D and I think she is well aware of that fact.
Never been a fan of that hip flexor area on women, so not digging that sheer panel on Chrissy’s dress. So happy when those high-legged bathing suits went outta fashion. Not attractive.
“Kris Jenner looked like Satan in a black dress”. Died. And went to hell with gasoline panties on and asked Satan for the wi-fi password.
I thought it was really mean that Corey had to sit behind Kris, yet Tyga got to sit next to Kylie!
Maybe this proves that his and Kris’ ‘relationship’ isn’t really that at all (and hence why he always looks like he’s her bodyguard)?
Satan’s little helper sure did look like the cat who got the cream in several of the photos the Daily Mail published – she was in her element.
Kourtney looks great and I don’t mind Rita Ora’s look.
The only thing with Rita is in the first photo one if her implants looked botched.
Also how is Chrissy a model? My husband and I both find her face very homely ?!
Shouldn’t it be spelled ho? A hoe is a gardening tool.
Hahahahaha – love it!!!
But then again – dual meaning – they are hos and they are tools … so perfect spelling!
Amber is awesome. It’s a shame she’s not talented because she really could’ve been iconic, just like Kanye said.
Oh I’m sure she has plenty of talents. 😉
I’ll just say it out loud: I LOVE Amber Rose. Normally I hate that “stripping is the ultimate form of feminism!” school, but with Amber… I buy it. I think Amber is genuinely happy like that, she truly likes herself and her body and likes showing off and have people look at it. I guess it has to do with her overall image – even if “barely clothed” clothing is a trend now, nobody does it quite like Amber. And, well, she’s bald. You don’t see many super-sexualised bald women. When she says she’s expressing herself sexually – I buy it. I buy that’s HER vision of sexuality and not just what guys wanna see.
Was Blac Chyna that girl who dated a rapper and used to wear piercings on her dimples? If so, good for her for getting rid of those. They weren’t a cute look.
I think it’s awesome. They certainly aren’t two of my favorite people, but the level of nastiness thrown at them each day is incredible. I know people here think that TSwift is more of a problem for feminism than any other threat in the entire world, but it’s the Kardashians and people in Blac Chyna/Amber Rose’s scene that continue to perpetuate the concept of women as commodities.
I don’t understand how so many Celebitches can still support Kanye after all of his misogynistic nastiness towards Amber. So much frat boy talk so people here detest can be quoted straight out of Kanye and other rap music. :/
Ya know, if you hadn’t provided the explanation from Amber, I would have interpreted their outfits as a statement about their nemeses, the K girls.
when did K J get her nose fixed….
I know she got it ruined long ago…
But it was really really wonky on the bridge and it is FINALLY improved.
I never hear anyone say anything about it.
Um, didnt Kim already wear that dress (but longer) and shoes, maybe even together? I know Kylie is supposed to be mini-Kim but daayum! That’s SWFing your sister there.
Funny, out of all the pictures I’ve seen from the VMA’s hardly any are musicians! It just slays me how the K clan always show up to these events. Just another photo op for them. Oh yes, Kanye and Tyga, newest members of the K clan, are wannabe musicians. I can’t believe they gave Kanye an award. He certainly hasn’t put out anything that tops everything out there!
at least these two had something to say. about a topic that is relevant and actually a problem.
Did Mylee say anything about her ‘happy hippie’ nonsense project she supposedly lives to work with and promote for homeless youth (or trans youth, see, I’m not even sure what it’s about).
all these other women did during this show seemed to be was just to use it as a public platform to continue the ‘private issues’ they have with one another…only because NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT HTEM OR THEIR MUSIC B/C IT ISN’T GOOD. AT ALL. all they have is petty catfights i haven’t seen the likes of since the 6th grade.
its embarrassing. for artists, for america, etc etc.
I think Amber & Blac Chyna’s statement outfits would have made more sense if they weren’t the most conservative outfits of the night, at least regarding the amount of flesh being covered up.
I LOVE what Kylie is wearing.
And WHEN will people get over the fact that Kim K appeared in a sex tape and had a golden shower? Adults do these things on occasion, it’s no biggie.
Kylie looks like she’s in pain
Kylie looks like a Cher impersonator. 😒
As an A cup, I have no side boob to speak of & can’t wear stuff like this so maybe I’m biased, but why do these chicks have to have their tits out All. The. Time? Maybe I’m just old. Damn kids get off my lawn.
Selena’s dress is boring and she really should have worn a bra under it. In some shots it goes sheer with the camera flashes! I do generally really like her style though. She often gets a great mix of simple, elegant and a little bit sexy.
Kylie looks older than me with that ridiculous makeup and I am 32!
“The devil likes to party!” Lmao!
