Check out the best and worst of the VMA outfits


IT IS hardly an event known for stylish fashion, but the VMAs hit a new low yesterday.

All day Confidenti­al was on the hunt for someone to brand “best dressed”, but we came up short.

Only Pitch Perfect 2 star Hailee Steinfeld rocked up in anything that could remotely pass as stylish.

Taylor Swift may have walked away with an armful of awards, but even the superstar’s Ashish outfit was below her usual stylish standards.

Miley Cyrus tried to shock in what could only be described as bejewelled Versace overalls – sans underwear or shirt – but it only made us yawn and yearn for the good old days.

With no Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna, or even Lady Gaga to keep us entertaine­d, what we were left with consisted of little more than Swifty’s posse and a gaggle of Kardashian/ Jenners.

Thank goodness Rebel Wilson was there flying the flag for Australia, though her dip-dyed hair wasn’t the best look she has ever rocked on a red carpet.

But after being blinded by the cleavage on display from Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears, we were just happy to see someone was at least attempting to show some modesty.

Hailee Steinfeld

SB: Sleek and elegant are two words not normally associated with the Video Music Awards. I would have ditched the shiny dog collar, but other than that, this was a rare standout.

KC: I really like this. It’s cool, fresh and clean. Slightly ageing, but she looked classy.

Vanessa Hudgens

SB: Poor love has spent so much time at Coachella, she thinks she’s there permanentl­y. Gorgeous hair and make-up save this from being Nanna’s curtains.

KC: I find it just a bit messy. It’s pretty, but this is more Byron Bay hippie wedding than red carpet.

Miley Cyrus

SB: Once, this would have been shocking, but we’ve seen far too much of Miley for it to raise an eyebrow.

KC: This is like one of the Von Trapp children became an exotic dancer. That chandelier on her crotch takes vajazzling to a whole new level.

Kylie Jenner

SB: Kylie’s morph into Kim is almost complete with this look. Embellishe­d, figurehugg­ing dress: check. All she needs is a rapper boyfriend – oh wait, she has that too.

KC: Talk about an ugly duckling transforma­tion. Her plastic surgeon must be one of the busiest in Hollywood.

Kim and Kanye

SB: I’m all for any pregnant lady rocking out in whatever she wants, but slinky khaki is never a good look. Kanye’s “I’m so cool I don’t care” schtick is getting tired.

KC: No matter what these two wore, it would be overshadow­ed by their enormous egos.

Justin Bieber

SB: And we thought Donald Trump had the world’s most talked about terrible hair? I can’t get over this Green Day wannabe look.

KC: Bieber looks like he is preparing to play Ellen DeGeneres in a telemovie about her life. I just don’t get what he is going for here.

Britney Spears

SB: Why so shocked Brit? That you squeezed into that frock, or that you still get invited to these things?

KC: Oh baby, baby, this is bad. It doesn’t fit. By showing this much skin, maybe she was hoping to distract from the fact that she hasn’t had a hit in 100 years.
