In 2010, the VMA carpet was invaded by celebrity style in the form of shiny leather, sparkly sequins and metal hues — some that worked and some that didn’t. We couldn’t help but feel transported to some kind of wonderful winter land where Gaga is law, so we’re preparing for this Sunday’s Video Music Awards by looking back at six red carpet looks that had futuristic funk.
We thought we knew sparkle, but this dress could easily hypnotize anyone who stares too long. And check out that belt and those bangles! Damn, girl! We don’t hate it. In fact, we can’t stop looking at everything.

The metallic fabric piques our interest, but overall this isn’t working for us. The skirt would have looked out of this world with a black bodice and vice versa — the metallic bodice would have paired well will a black skirt. But metallic all over? Too tweeny for us, Selena.
This leathery dress with a little glitter says, “I’m Rosario and I’ll take it from here.” When paired with her forest green pumps, something inside us goes gaga for Lady Rosario. A simple bangle and red nail polish gave her get-up a few more pops of style cred when it came to the VMA carpet of fashion.
This girl has been rocking the red carpet looking seriously stylish these days. So, when we looked back to last year’s VMA carpet ensemble, it was no suprise to us that Emma looked pretty dang good in black leather. Her eye makeup was a little heavy, but overall, we dig it. Plus, check out those edgy “sleeves.”
Only in the millenium would we see a gown like this, and it makes us proud to be survivors of the Y2K. An ombre feathered gown — who knew? While this is a far stretch from the ’90s style, body slimming little black dress we’re used to, we’re happy to incorporate this into the latest generation of the LBD.
We love Kesha’s mismatched earrings and the bulky finger decor, but this is a dress we’re not quite ready to embrace. We’re all for the leather look and giving females empowering style, but the seams of this mini dress still scream tacky.
