  • All hail Lorde the Queen of feathers

    Much like previous years (remember when Kanye interrupted Taylor’s speech?), the MTV VMAs 2017 had their fair share of memorable moments. There was the big reveal of Taylor Swift’s new video, Look What You Made Me Do, with all its subtle references, and Pink’s powerful speech about her daughter and body image.

    But on stage wasn’t the only place celebs were making a statement, they were doing it on the red carpet too. Ke$ha made her red carpet comeback after releasing her first single in four years earlier this month, and to mer her dreamy ruffled dress was the perfect way to symbolise a new beginning.

    Meanwhile, Lorde shunned her usual dark colours in favour of a lilac feather dress by Monique Lhuillier, which totally stole the show.

    Katy Perry went quite demure in a white dress, but did jazz things up with some statement hoop earrings. Some fans suggested it was a subtle message to Taylor Swift, who dropped her new music video at the event. Their feud is legendary, and Taylor’s new music video is supposedly a dig at Katy, and Katy’s choice of white might be a way to show she is the bigger, more peaceful person. Who knows? Either way, it’s fabulous.

    Mel B wore a sequin dress emblazoned with the words ‘You Will Never Own Me’, no doubt in reference to her ex Stephen Belafonte, who was allegedly abusive towards her.

    Millie Bobby Brown, at just 13, slayed it in a gold-embellished Rodarte dress, toughened up with biker boots, which to me totally encapsulates what the VMAs are all about: fun, carefree and edgy.
