Exaggerated fashion accessories, from snakes to leashed men on the red carpet – The Hollywood Reporter
The MTV Video Music Awards are known for their wild and crazy looks on the red carpet. Stars often show up after checking their inhibitions at the door. Monday’s red carpet was no exception, with several stars arriving with eye-catching accessories, from live snakes to leashed men. Here’s a look at some of this year’s most incidental moments.
Men on a leash
YouTube influencer Nikita Dragun arrived in New Jersey wearing a custom look from “fantastic” designer LOCA, including a pink nipple, pink feather boa and the ultimate red carpet accessories – leashed men wearing glasses sunglasses and mittens.
Although the VMAs have a history of snakebites (a Nicki Minaj dancer was suffocated in 2014), two stars arrived this year with snakes draped around their shoulders. In a mimicked ode to Britney Spears, who brought a sunny-hued snake to the 2001 VMAs, internet personality Tana Mongeau walked the carpet with a yellow snake to complement her golden Nicola Bacchilega dress.
Meanwhile, the HER singer-songwriter arrived wearing a floral suit from Valentino’s Fall 2019 collection with one of her favorite “noodles” around her neck. The artist posted on Instagram about bringing his snake/prop to the VMAs: “I have 5 noodles at home. I try to bring them wherever I can because people love them and they’re really cool.
Hip-hop group Naughty by Nature arrived fully prepared for the end of the world. Treach wore an Armageddon-inspired white mask with netting over his eyes and mouth, similar to the mask Nick Cannon accessorized at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, while adding a cane and a cluster of necklaces including a large cross pendant.
Amazing cell phone
Actress Keke Palmer walked the carpet in a stunning yellow sequined high-neck dress by Yousef Aljasmi with a matching retro cellphone clutch by Judith Leiber ($5,695). cluelessno one?
