StyleSpeak takes you on a fashion roller coaster ride at the VMA 2019

MTV Video Music Awards or VMAs have always had a rebellious fashion streak since they debuted in 1984 with the wildest, most daring, and scantily-dressed red carpet looks of all times. At VMA, risk-taking glamour, over-the-top fashion statements and high-voltage hair never fail to disappoint! This year was no different. VMA 2019 was all about being wildly over-the-top tossing between glamour and eccentricity. Pink was in vogue with stars accentuating their look in different attires in this pretty hue, while blazers over shorts or pants were also quite a rage. StyleSpeak gets you some of the outlandish styles of the evening, each more vibrant and quirky than the last.  

‘Bling’ on the fashion
Keke Palmer looked drop-dead-gorgeous in a skin-tight gold Yousef Aljasmi gown covered with sequins and Swarovski crystals. She accessorized this gorgeous attire with a huge gold phone and a clutch bag that looked like a bar of gold. While Tiffany Panhilason embodied Joan of Arc in a stunning metallic gown with a plunging neckline. Her hair was kept simple with minimalistic make-up. Singer Lizzo waltzed on the red carpet in a red sequin gown with a fluttering feathered boa. Her monochromatic make-up and a six-inch beehive up do completed the look. In another outfit, she brought sunlight into the awards night wearing a bright-yellow bodysuit, yellow booties and yellow eyeshadow.

innovative dressing.
