Red Carpet Review: 2014 Video Music Awards

The VMAs never fail to secure some of the most historic music performances. Britney? Miley? Naturally, Queen B's performance, and Blue Ivy's very special appearance, was nothing short of fantastic. But the red carpet fashion? Always a hit or miss. Memorable? Yes. Stylish? Debatable. In case you missed the red carpet, check out which looks hit a sartorial high note and which ones you'll be dying to forget.

The Best.

Chanel Iman in Balmain: From Kim Kardashian to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivier Rousteing has been getting some major star-power. And let's just add megawatt model Chanel Iman to the list, shall we? Needless to stay, this ensemble is pure bliss on her. The modest midi length gives an otherwise sexy texture a sophisticated twist. The natural makeup and minimal accessories allows the dress to be the focal point of this look. Fortunately, Iman's powerful stance prevents this look from wearing her.
Solange Knowles: Perfection on so many levels. Knowles is never one to stray away from a fashion challenge, and this is a risk that absolutely paid off. In total, this look is the perfect blend between Diana Ross's seventies reign and le smoking. The embellished suit offers a feminine touch to a masculine silhouette.  The outrageously glamorous look is carefully balanced with a fresh face and no jewels. Flawless.
Kylie Jenner: Not convinced that the Kardashian/Jenner clan is killing it on the red carpet? Please take a look at the youngest of the pack's ensemble and reconsider. Dressed well beyond her years, this silky dress is ideal for the end of summer. Though the high-slit and deep neckline offer a VMA-approved sex appeal, the long sleeves and floor-sweeping hem prevent an classic case of inappropriate teen. For once, Jenner nixed the gothic lip and opted for something a little more conventional. Obsessed.
Rita Ora: The songstress didn't leave much to the imagination; however, this red silky gown perfectly walks the line between sultry and too sexy. However, leave it to Ora to be insanely fearless enough to sport this look. The matching lip is spot on and that bling-ed out choker brings the ultimate feminine touch.
Sarah Hyland in Kaufmanfranco: The Modern Family star is always a joy to spot on the red carpet for one particular reason: she always deeply considers the full look. Case in point? This outfit. The asymmetrical getup is perfectly counteracted with Hyland's uniformed middle part. The multiple arm bracelets keep this outfit extremely fashion forward. As for the berry lip-- isn't it the best contrast to that gorgeous blue?

The Worst.

Taylor Swift in Mary Katrantzou: While Taylor's increasingly fearless taste is commendable, this printed bodysuit is simply trying a little too hard. It's one of those outfits that you can tell was styled with the intention of being an iconic VMAs look; however, Swift's ensemble during her VMA's performance would've been more fitting for the occasion. And let's be honest, Queen B's bodysuit reigns superior.  On the accessories front, the bordeaux booties do not complement the bodysuit- the pairing is random. A for effort, but didn't we all know Taylor's outfit was trouble when she walked in? Bad music pun?

Amber Rose in Laura Dewitt: The red carpet regular has never been known for her stylish ensembles; however, this look is truly on another level of awkward. While a very Josephine Baker-inspired ensemble is almost expected at any music-related awards show, this is just too much skin! Cover up!
Victoria Justice in Alice + Olivia and Lublu Kira Plastinina: A few weeks ago, the starlet nailed a flawlessly ethereal ensemble at the Teen Choice Awards. What went wrong? While the strip of exposed skin is perfect for this occasion, the textured mullet skirt is a tad outdated and immature. And to make matters worse, the usually tongue in chic Edie Parker bag and ultra-polished shoe look cheesy with this unsophisticated look. Better luck next time.
Rita Volk: What happened to the rest of her dress? Paired with the red shoes, this outfit looks a little trampy.
