Ashley Graham in Naeem Khan & wet-look hair at the VMAs: tragic or cute?


As I’ve said countless times this year, I love and admire Ashley Graham. I think she’s beautiful and cool and an inspiration to women who are not a size 2. But her “new look” at the VMAs was not great. I wasn’t feeling her Naeem Khan dress – it just didn’t seem flattering, plus it was sort of boring. I also was not feeling her choppy bob/lob. It doesn’t suit her face, and the style is just meh. So disappointed, Ashley!


Amber Rose in a menswear-inspired ensemble. I’m not completely sure why she was there, but she got a special shout-out from Kanye. It felt surprisingly classy.


I didn’t even recognize Cassie with this hair/wig, although would I have recognized her without it? That’s the real question. Cassie and Diddy broke up last week (reportedly, she dumped him), the cops were called, no one got arrested, they got back together and now…? I have no idea. The hair seems like breakup hair, but who knows.


Stella Maxwell in Moschino. It looks like she’s wearing a deconstructed piñata.

    A lot of no outfits and looks in this post. Amber looks the best but I wish the jacket was a little more tailored and fitted. I love a mens look on women.
    The rest are tragic

      Yeah, Amber’s coat needs a bit more tailoring, but she looked great.
      I live Ashley’s bob, but I wish it wasn’t this wet texure. The dress is awful.

  2. Jellybean says:

    The all look awful except the bottom one who at least looks summery and fun.

    As I said before… thank god for them that Joan Rivers is dead.
    Awful from top to toe. All of them

  4. jeanpierre says:

    I like Amber look and that’s about it.

  5. QQ says:

    Love Ashley, hated the Hair, but saw it different at the Nick Jonas Thing so maybe she didnt cut it

    Amber looks Amazeballs

  6. Taiss says:

    Amber looks amazing. I love Ashley but I hate this look, it does nothing for her.
    Cassie and diddy are already back together. She won’t leave him until he’s completely done with her.

    For her “new look,” Ashley clearly handed her stylist a picture of Demi Lovato.

  8. minx says:

    Ashley is a goddess but that look is terrible.

  9. Dani says:

    Cassie is so so beautiful, great dancer, decent voice. But Diddy??? Like girl WHY. She does look close with his sons and I’m surprised she’s not knocked up yet after all this time.

    Gosh, this netted/lacey/sheer (without anything underneath) fabric that almost everyone is wearing is so Fug. In 10 years time,if not already, people are gonna make fun of this decade simply because of this style trend. Its atrocious. IMO it doesn’t look good on anyone. None. Not even Beyonce. It’s somewhat her default. So obviously look at me that it gets boring.

    As for Amber, the one thing about her I have always liked, fashion wise, is that she is always so pulled together. With clean lines and very neat looks. Not a lot of people have got a style sense like her. She would be a good stylist for the Duchess of DoLittle. I hope I’m not stretching but I would like that.

    Ashley Graham is stunning but that dress did nothing for her at all.
