When it comes to awards ceremonies, the red-carpet show always takes the cake – and this year’s MTV VMS’s were certainly no exception: Hollywood’s darlings brought their A-game, leaving team Beauty Coach plenty of fuel for our creative fire.
Read on to get our curated list of celebrities that slayed – plus get exclusive tips and tricks for achieving their noteworthy style!
We must confess: J-Lo remains an all-time red-carpet favorite. Her classic- yet-edgy styling is unparalleled – and her Versace VMA’s gown was the perfect example of this juxtaposition. The cut of her single-shouldered dress was timeless but boasted intricate details that defined ‘slay’ – perfect for receiving her Vanguard Award.
We, of course, couldn’t take our eyes off of her tresses, which were enhanced by silky extensions that brushed the icon’s hips. Chris Appleton, the stylist responsible for the look, surmised her red-carpet coif perfectly when he captioned: “Glam, laid and slayed,” on his Instagram account.
To mimic Jen’s mermaid locks, apply KMS TAMEFRIZZ Smoothing Hair Lotion into your mid-lengths and ends. Delivering instant combability and reduced frizz when blow drying, the lightweight leave-in formula provides the perfect balance by controlling strands, without weighing them down.
Anna Kendrick is not one to make over-the-top style choices, but she IS consistently glam. She stayed true to this chic-aesthetic for the VMA’s, wearing a thigh-skimming, sequined gown with flapper-like feathers adorning the hem line. Beauty Coach loved the look, which was reminiscent of Old-Hollywood glamour.
We’re also loving her supernaturally-sleek strands, which were expertly parted down the center, and tucked sweetly behind her ears. To achieve her look, reach for an Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush, which tout ceramic bristles that seamlessly fuse the power of a flat iron with the ease of a hairbrush – for salon-quality results in a single stroke.
Dramatic, metallic embellishments abound at this year’s VMAs – and Karlie’s Ellie Saab frock was among the most-favored of them. Her high-slit dress was slim-fitting and hit all of the right notes: Daring and fashion-forward, with a stand-alone quality that required very few accessories.
Her hair was worn in casual, California waves – and was the perfect shade of creamy blonde. To mimic her golden-girl style, reach for Oribe Bright Blonde Shampoo for Beautiful Color, which is formulated with a brightening complex to optimize the shade, tonality and luminosity of your strands.
So, for this ceremony, our takeaways are simple: Metallic frocks are soon to make their way to street style. When it comes to styling strands, anything goes – but we predict a return to dramatic lengths (which may or may not be enhanced by extensions). And whether sleek and straight or tousled, texture must be OWNED, thoroughly. Slay on, beauties.
