Red Carpet Recap: The Good, The Bad, The WTF of MTV’s 2012 VMAs
If the 2012 VMAs is any indication, Morticia Adams is having a moment. Celeb after celeb sweated down the LA red carpet wearing long, tight dresses, leather, and electrocuted hair. It was all very "Adams Family-chic." Some pulled it off, others failed, and a few went a different direction. (Thank you, Emma Watson and Rihanna). Let's begin the scrutinizing, shall we?
The long-sleeve, gray gown is an odd choice when you know you're going to be posing under harsh sunlight. Plus the scaly texture of the dress coupled with her signature dino 'do recalls a horned creature that haunts my dreams. But that's just me.
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa
Preggers and in a head-to-toe Morticia gown? I'm sweating for her. They make a cute couple, though.
Something about the cut and intricate detailing of this mini dress makes Ke$ha appear a bit top-heavy to me. She did, however, bring a muppet she slaughtered herself to this Adams' family reunion, so that was thoughtful and in step with the theme of the night.
Tyga goes matchy-matchy. Hideously.
She's so Wednesday. It suits her.
Alicia borrowed Angelina Jolie's leg for the evening.
Another gothic Morticia Gown. Jessica Szohr ups the ante, however, by using a cheetah pelt to keep her brains in her head.
Every horror film needs a virginal vision, and last night, Rihanna played that part perfectly.
Miley is following in Pink's dinosaur footsteps. The buttons down the back of this severe, gothic gown coupled with her horned hairdo recall a carnivorous creature of the carnotaurus variety. (That's a real thing. I did research.)
USA Gymnastics Team
This beautie can do no wrong in my book.
This is like Morticia Adams, the sexy-halloween-costume version.
Taylor, if you're going to insist on dating a Kennedy zygote, you might want to stop wearing pants suits that make you look middle-aged.
Emma Watson and Ezra Miller
Emma, killin' it per usual. Unfortunately, I'm distracted by her un-groomed Spanish bull fighter of a date.
Nicki did her expected troll doll thing.
Katy Perry went with the leather theme, but only with accents so the look is less severe. Also she wore a bathing suit under the sheer skirt, acknowledging that it was probably 90 degrees out.
Then there was this guy.
