Jaden Smith in a faux-patchwork Undercover coat at the VMAs: cool or meh?


Jaden Smith had a reason to attend the VMAs. One, Jaden is obsessed with Drake, and Drake is in turn obsessed with Rihanna, so obviously Jaden had to show up. Two, Jaden is promoting his new TV show, The Get Down. Three, he’s a fashion guy. I’m actually surprised that he didn’t walk the carpet in a complete womenswear outfit, because that’s one of his causes: that all clothes should be worn by all people. Jaden’s VMA ensemble was by Undercover. It was classic Jaden, in that only he could really pull it off and make it look interesting. Well, maybe Tilda Swinton could have worn this?


The Final Five – the five female Olympic gymnasts – were supposed to make an appearance together, but Gabby Douglas had some kind of medical issue and she was hospitalized yesterday. So only four gymnasts came out: Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian. I love these young women! And they all got hugs from Beyonce too, when they presented her with an award. Aly’s dress is Hayley Paige.



I saw some shade for Tinashe’s Juan Carlos Obando jumpsuit, but I didn’t really understand why? I thought she looked really pretty. The jumpsuit was a little bit too big, that was the only real issue.


Naomi Campbell is Naomi Campbell, so of course she had to attend the VMAs AND have a costume change. She walked the carpet in the Brandon Maxwell mint minidress which was really not that great or flattering. It makes her look so short-waisted!! Naomi was also showing off the new Pat McGrath Real Lust 004 glitter lip kit. Now you know! She changed into the white dress after the carpet.



Tove Lo wore Dion Lee and metallic kicks. I actually love this ensemble. She’s not known as some sexy pop-tart, so she went with something that looked sort of comfortable.

    I love Jaden Smith. The Final Five look gorgeous and so strong, such beautiful young ladies. Not a Tinashe fan but she’s gorg. Naomi is queen 🙌🏾

      This more or less. I thought the Final Five outfits looked a bit prom-y but hey it doesn’t matter. Jaden! Naomi!!!!

    • I Choose Me says:

      Here for Jaden also. Simone’s outfit is the only one I really like but all those ladies have awesome physiques and were having such a good time. Naomi’s lip color is gorgeous and how, how can she stay looking so good for so long?

    All I can see are Naomi’s legs. She looks WOW overall. Vampire! She should have her own post, instead of the Hailees and Halseys.

    Jaden looks GREAT to me, same with Naomi, ageless!

    Tenashe is suffering from Zendaya syndome: Wayyyyyt Baggy clothes drowning a very petite body

    Jaden needs to realize that the deer in the headlights look does not work for anybody.

    • supersoft says:

      YES. He still tries to work that look that probably 13-year old girls drop their pants at.

    Jaden, close your mouth; you’re catching flies….

    I like Jaden’s look. It’s a bit too warm for August, but the coat looks great. I’d wear that. Tove Lo looks fantastic. I love everythimg, from the hair and the dress to the sneakers. The Final Five look a bit junior prom-y, but they are so adorable.

  8. Danielle says:

    I think to tove’s look is great

  9. Kitten says:

    I think Jaden looks great. Say what you want about the kid, but he definitely has his own distinct style.

  10. Lucy says:

    Jaden looked great imo, he knows how to work a coat. Nothing nice to say about Naomi, so no word about her. 4/5 deserved better outfits, but they looked adorable and thrilled to be there, so it’s all good. Love Tove Lo and her full look!

  11. Eva says:

    Not a popular opinion here but I LOVE Jaden and his crazy outfits. He’s very entertaining.

    Also, The Get Down is amazing, watch it!

    The skit on that mint dress was a bit much for me but of course Naomi looked stunning.
