MTV VMAs – The Fashions and the Winners – this year’s MTV Video Music Awards had more than its fair share of controversy but more with the stage performances and outfits than the award winners.
Miley Cyrus seemed to upset a number of people as she moved around on stage in a little flesh coloured bikini. She gyrated and bent over but the part that most upset the Twitterati was when she was seen touching her co-star on stage Robin Thicke with a giant foam finger.
Other on stage controversy came from Taylor Swift who was apparently heard to say something rather naughty when One Direction, including her ex Harry Styles, went up on stage to receive the award for Best Pop Video.
Taylor herself also took home an award as she won the Best Female Video award for her song I Knew You Were Trouble. It is no secret that the song was written after her break up with Styles and she said in her acceptance speech that she wanted to want ‘to thank the person who inspired this song because he knows exactly who he is, because now I’ve got one of these.’
The evening was opened up on stage with a performance from Lady Gaga where she changed from a demure nun’s outfit into a revealing seashell bikini. The singer is known for her controversial stage performances and outfits and has recently appeared completely nude in a video for an arts fundraiser.
In case anyone was in any doubt as to who Taylor was talking about the MTV cameras then cut to an embarrassed Harry who was trying to look away while his bandmates Niall and Louis appeared to be giggling.
There were a number of people making quite an impression with their outfits for the evening including singer Ciara who wore a stylish nude dress with feathers and jewels carefully placed to cover up any potentially unwanted flashes of flesh and wardrobe malfunctions.
Rita Ora has been on very good form in recent weeks as far as her fashion choices go and she did not disappoint tonight as she arrived by white Rolls Royce wearing an outfit that not only revealed her cleavage and nearly all of her legs but also had a 20ft train.
Although there was no doubt as to who had the most see-through outfit it didn’t win many points with most onlookers. Model Erin Wasson wore a completely see-through Alexandre Vauthier black outfit which showed off her black underwear.
Someone who did get lots of points for her stylish and sexy outfit was Selena Gomez who wore a stunning long Versace dress for the evening. The outfit was slit high on her thigh and was also slashed open at the top to reveal a French bustier.
