Halsey in a white Yousef Al Jasmi jumpsuit at the VMAs: hot or fug?

2016 MTV Video Music Awards
There were so many women in jumpsuits at last night’s VMAs that you might assume that the jumpsuit is making a comeback. I thought this trend would have died out a couple of years ago but jumpsuits are still around and they’re formal, which can be difficult to pull off. Halsey was in a white Yousef Al Jasmi jumpsuit with sequin stripes. I didn’t realize how see through this was until I saw the photos. When your body is this banging a formfitting jumpsuit should not be unflattering but somehow this is. She looks so much different with hair, right?

Halsey performed “Closer” with the Chainsmokers, during which there was chemistry coming from the screen. Halsey’s outfit for this is a bit revealing, but it does her justice and it would not have looked out of place on the red carpet here’s that performance:

Hailey Baldwin showed how you do a formal jumpsuit in this black sheer Georges Chakra number with a leaf-life sequin overlay. In still photos this doesn’t look as good as it did on camera. She was stunning in this. Usually I find Hailey forgettable but not last night.

I’m throwing Rita Ora in at the end because even though her Marc Jacobs outfit was so extra, even though it combined almost every fabric you’re supposed to use sparingly (leather, fur, lace, sequins, fishnet and feathers, I have no idea which are real), and even though she was sporting a rooster fauxhawk, it was forgettable. Such is the power of Rita Ora. She’s the pop singer with no songs you can name who cried fug. I will say one thing – this outfit didn’t look out of place on stage when Rita was presenting. It was like a performance outfit but you know that’s not relevant for Rita.

    I find Halsey so annoying. So ver try hard and annoying. But I like Rita. At least she admits her try hardness.

    Hayley would look amazin if the jumpauit wasn’t sheer. When will that trend go away? But the cut and colour were amazing amd her hair is great. She was one of the best dressed.

      She is suuuuper annoying. If you knew her on tumblr before she became famous you’d hate her even more. A handful of girls I know and I know her from a verrrry long time ago. Meh. Ugh. Not many other words I can use. She has a decent voice but she’s not very nice/honest/real. Everything she used to stand for is buried deep or denied now because she’s famous and wants to be part of the cool kids crowd. Always was the same way.

    I usually love jumpsuits but those two are a big fat NO. They are ugly, the white one especially.

  3. ReineDidon says:

    All of them are wearing the same thing, see-through embroidered outfits. I am so tired of this trend. Also the whole VMA 2016 is one of the less impressive in the history of VMA’s. Fashion choices included !

  4. Danielle says:

    Just me, or was that guy pretty off key?

  5. Amelia says:

    Is there only one plastic surgeon in LA?
    Swear to God, all these nepotism kids share the same surgeon as each other because they all look the same!
    Throw a dark wig on Hailey Baldwin and I’d almost think she was Kylie Jenner.

    Also, who thought it would ever be a good idea to give the ANTM hosting gig to Rita Ora? Precisely what does she know about modelling? Or music, for that matter.

    Hailey Baldwin looks amazing 😍😍

    I love Halsey but this seems like the fit might be off? Like the waist should be a little longer? Idk. Love the lipstick.

  8. Little Darling says:

    Halsey’s outfit would have been much better cut in two. A cute halter, a bit of sexy belly and then hip hugger clingy pants. That would have been beautiful. But as is the V flap crotch is a big NO.

    Also, what about the awkward Wonder Womab pose? Ugh, I would not love having to come up with poses.

  9. Lucy says:

    It no longer surprises me to see Rita attending an awards show for no reason at all other than to wear something excesively over the top, not that it bothers me. Hailey looked great, but why was she even there?

    • dq says:

      Why was Rita or Hailey there? Why do they invite models and reality stars? Because they’re “in”

  10. dq says:

    I don’t mind Halsey, but that jumpsuit should be lit aflame.

    Same with Rita Ora.
