Cardi B in amethyst Nicolas Jebran at the VMAs: genuinely lovely?

2018 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

Cardi B gave birth to baby Kulture about five or six weeks ago. She obviously had to cancel a lot of her plans, like her tour with Bruno Mars and various one-off performances and appearances. I’m a little bit surprised that she didn’t cancel her appearance at MTV’s VMAs, because… I mean, people would have understood. If she wants to take six months off to spend time with her baby, people would understand completely. But no, Cardi still got up, got dressed to the nines and presented an award. She looked amazing too – the amethyst dress was by Nicolas Jebran, and she accented it with emerald jewelry. Love an entire look of jewel tones!

Karlie Kloss in Elie Saab. I actually love this dress and love her whole look. I have no idea why she was there, but she looked great.


If Blake Lively is invited to your event, Blake Lively will come to your event and she will overdress. This tuxedo is Ralph & Russo. It’s wrong for the VMAs and it’s crazy that she wore this in the middle of August.

Anna Kendrick also wore Ralph & Russo. I hate this soooooo hard.


Amber Rose went to the VMAs as some kind of devilish dominatrix, which seems on-brand for her. I mean… it does feel too “costume party” but she explained during the pre-show that she was doing some kind of homage to Madonna. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Why are Bland Lively and Karlie there? Doesn’t Blake have a plantation party to attend? And shouldn’t Karlie be checking her coordinated outfit with her future sister-in-law for the US open?

    • MCV says:

      I wish I could like this comment.

      Why no one asks Blake about her wedding? I guess the white privilege showed up

    • JAC says:

      I mean Karlie is hardly responsible for her sister in law’s actions.

    • Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

      Bland Lively. I love how witty and accurate this is.

    • G says:

      I’m not particularly a fan of Blake Lively but her outfit along with Anna Kendrick’s looked like a direct advertisement to their new movie, A Simple Favor. Their characters dress like that in the movie… Blake just did an all white version…. it’s Meh.. but I kinda got it as soon as they walked on stage.

  2. Laughysaphy says:

    Cardi B is STUNNING!

  3. Naddie says:

    I don’t get Blake Lively and Amber Rose. I really don’t.

  4. JeanGrey says:

    Cardi’s red dress she wore to accept her award was better.

  5. minx says:

    Blake Lively looks silly. Why on earth is she there?

    • K-Peace says:

      Blake really does look silly, and just terrible. Ugly hairdo (and the color is putrid), her makeup/face looks awful (I’ve never understood why she’s considered some kind of beauty–I think she’s the personification of plain), and as Kaiser said that heavy overly-formal outfit is just strange in August.

      Anna Kendrick–another big UGH. I also don’t get her appeal. There’s absolutely nothing appealing, attractive, or interesting about her; I don’t think she’s a good actress. Same as Blake: why is she at the VMAs?

      Cardi looks gorgeous!! Absolutely love her whole look. I myself am about to give birth and I hope to be out & about and looking half as great as she does only 5 weeks later.

      Amber Rose looks just cringe-inducingly ridiculous. WTF?!?

      • MCV says:

        “I’ve never understood why she’s considered some kind of beauty–I think she’s the personification of plain”

        Shes blonde and white, that’s all you need to be called beautiful.

    Blake Lively has been wearing all these trouser suits lately and while I get that it’s nice to sometimes experiment outside your comfort zone, she looks really uncomfortable in each one. She’s way more comfortable in Bombshell mode, imo. She ain’t no Rachel Evan Wood. With the trouser suits it just looks like the clothes are wearing her; just way too costumey

    Cardi B looks amazing. That color is perfect on her.

  7. Babs says:

    Your labia is showing Ambs.

    • smcollins says:

      😂 I didn’t want to say anything so thank you for that. Who knew they made body suits with matching landing strips?

    • Enn says:

      That is seriously my one takeaway from this post. When I can see genitalia, it’s time to quit.

    • Jan90067 says:

      Not only that, but you KNOW it’s a thong in the back. Who’d want to sit in THAT seat after???? *shudder*

  8. Lightpurple says:

    Cardi B’s haircut really suits her face. The dress & jewels are lovely.

  9. MellyMel says:

    Blake and Anna have a new movie coming out…hence why they were there.

  10. Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

    I thought Cardi was a young Kris Jenner at first.

  11. lucy2 says:

    I like Cardi and Karlie’s dresses (though I can’t imagine having that much boobage on display!) but the rest are a no.
    Blake looks like an 1800s schoolmarm.

  12. Other Renee says:

    Anna looks like she’s wearing a cheerleader outfit.

    Cardi B. looks fabulous. Total perfection. She’s been keeping it real about her struggles adapting to new motherhood (unlike many others in HWood) so I’ll bet she’s thrilled to be out and about in glamour mode.

  13. Tallia says:

    Love Cardi!

    Ok. My lady bits hurt looking at Amber.

  14. Tessa Squire says:

    Cardi looks like a Quality Street (in a good way) though I’m not sure about the wig.
    How is Amber Rose containing her labia in there?

  15. London Lozza says:

    1. How does Amber Rose sit down in that?
    2. How does Amber Rose sit down in that and not have the whole world see her Lady Garden?

  16. Purrrr says:

    Cardi B looks amazing.

    How is Blake Lively’s pose face acceptable? ick.

  17. bella says:

    Cardi looks so gorgeous– that I gasped. I don’t like Blake or Anna’s look, and they both look like they are not feeling it as well! I am with everyone, concerning Amber’s outfit, that is “how does she sit down?” She looks so uncomfortable just standing there!

  18. applepie says:

    Cardi B you look incredible! Just perfection. Natural, all woman. Amber…….you about as thirsty as your liddle vj hon! I spit out my coffee when I saw her outfit.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Cardi B looks great and she is tons of fun…but she’s no where near “natural”. She has breast implants and got injections into her bum (that apparently leaked for days). She’s open about these things.

  19. Pandy says:

    Cardi’s dress looks cheap. Bland Lively is giving me Diane Keaton vibes!!! Anyone else? Not a good look anyway.

  20. Yes Doubtful says:

    I love the color of Cardi’s dress, but it’s too low cut. Amber Rose…I love her, but that’s just bad all around.

  21. Betsy says:

    Ralph and Russo was also responsible for that travesty of Meghan Markle’s engagement photo dress. I think I just don’t like their style.

  22. JanetFerber says:

    Here to support Amber. She looks fabulous. Chica is getting her sexy on. I find her so much more benign and so much less objectionable than Trump. Trump is always wearing his inner devil.

  23. Ginger says:

    Karlie looking like a whole mannequin.

  24. Medusa says:

    Cardi B’s dress is terrible. It would’ve been better if it was a proper gown with no split or without major cleavage. Now it looks like her left boob is making a run for it and with the split up to her babymaker it makes the whole thing look cheap. Same goes for Karlie Kloss: boobs or legs but both (and in her case with a double split, for godsake) it looks cheap. The other outfits also look terrible and I’m not even going to start with Amber Rose. It’s not yet halloween, darling.
