Halsey had rainbow roots and wore Dundas Couture to the VMAs: predictable?

Halsey brought the weirdness to the VMAs last night in a Dundas Couture gown that was just a ruffley sheer overlay over a bra, granny panties and a studded corset. She always dresses like this but I think she took it up a notch with the styling. Her roots were painted to look like a rainbow and she had some kind of orange stuff on her cheeks. It wasn’t in the typical highlighting or contouring areas either, it was on the sides, which was weird, and on camera it didn’t look even on both sides! Come on with that. The rainbow roots should have been longer, in my opinion. I’ll say something nice, she’s so pretty even with all this weirdness.

Alison Brie was in Elie Saab. This is just OK for the VMAs but wouldn’t fly most other places. She presented with French Montana and I swear he was staring at her boobs.

Presenter Hailee Steinfeld was working this red Aadnevik dress. Love the detailing on this and how it falls. This looks like it should be sheer, but it’s not. She can really sing and her tracks are surprisingly good, but she only has a handful of songs out. I’d like to see a full album from her.


Keke Palmer was in a gorgeous yellow Yousef Aljasmi column dress with Swarovski crystals. I’m including her because her old school bedazzled cell phone purse is the best. I want it! This reminds me of Lady Gaga’s purse at the Met Gala, remember that?

    I really like Ash but I can’t for the life of me figure out her style. Most of the time I simply don’t get it.

  2. Anners says:

    Keke Palmer looks stunning – like old school Hollywood glamorous with playful accessories.

    Halsey’s eye/temple/cheek makeup looks like she’s cosplaying a Misfit from Jem and the Holograms.

  3. Michael says:

    I love how Halsey stuck by Bella’s side so she would not feel left out by Gigi and Taylor and Gigi and Tyler. They are very good friends having met through Halsey’s good friend The Weeknd

    As usual, Halsey is all LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME. Hailee is gorgeous. Keke is gorgeous. Allison Brie needs to stop messing with her face, she looks totally different. That’s all I got.

      That’s basically what VMA fashion is for, though. Her style can be very iffy. Hailee’s dress is similar to hers, but looks better.

    My cats like to lay in sunbeams, and sometimes when the sun comes through in just the right way, it’s diffracted like a prism, turning them into fuzzy little rainbows.

    That’s what Halsey’s hair looks like.

    • Grant says:

      YES! That is literally the perfect comparison and I’m dead!!! And thank you for making me think of my two precious kitties this morning while I’m at work and making me smile.

    Some people simply shouldn’t be allowed to call themselves fashion designers or be allowed to design clothes in the first place. So tacky.

  7. Jessie says:

    Hailees dress is sheer. You don’t see that nipple?

    French Montana waslooking at her boobs and then made an awkward comment about being an immigrant. I’m always glad when celebrities speak out against the bs happening right now but you couldnt make out what he said then Alison said something as well about immigration and then more of him looking at her boobs! Such a strange pairing
