Perez Hilton, doing all bloggers proud.
Didn’t I call it? If we’re not careful, plaid jeans will be next. If you didn’t watch last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, then you probably didn’t miss much in the fashion department. Unless, you’re one of the many who just wanted to watch it to see Britney (who, by the way, looked pretty good), the big show was before the show. It was a circus on the red carpet and hip-hop artist T-Pain was the Ring Master. Literally. At the red carpet, the so-called music ballers simply rolled out of bed and showed up. People showed up in their underwear and what looked like clown pants on some folks. Katy Perry didn’t wear pants, but she looked like a flying trapeze girl. I can’t tell who won the most ghastly-dressed contest. The Jonas Brothers raided the Miami Vice wardrobe vault. DJ AM, who looked street chic in his baggy dark denims, was the shining hope to Michael Phelps’ dull ensemble. His jeans looked ill-fitting on him and seemed to accentuate his dusty shoes. We get it Michael. You have big clown feet.

The fashion saving grace was Pete Wentz’s interesting Emo choker. It was a fashion risk that worked for him. Pete, can I borrow it? I’m curious to know what the Fashion Indie folks think about all the red carpet looks.
People seemed to have fun dressing horribly. Perez Hilton didn’t seem to mind that he looked like he just rolled in from his used-car sales gig to supplement the millions he’s making on his blog.
It’s fun to see who shows up in all their glory and splendor. It’s fun to see who doesn’t. At this year’s MTV Video Music Awards show, it was a complete joke. Now I must go wash my eyes out with soap.
