VMAs - Then and Now

From slick suits to clean and casual, this year's VMAs showed a variety of stylish stars on the red carpet. Let's take a look at the best fashion transformations from last weekend's big event...


2009 was the year of, let's just say Kanye's most memorable (not necessarily best) VMA moment! We'll never forget his outburst to Swifty … But who remembers what he decided to wear the day he apparently made her "famous"?1  His look consisted of a leather shirt, washed denim jeans and we  just can't ignore those harder, faster, stronger aviators …In our opinion, not Ye's strongest look yet. He's known for his casual yet “edgy "looks on the red carpet and this year he definitely lived up to that and was white on trend! Head to toe in all white, he teamed up a crisp white T with clean cut jeans. Kanye casually killed it!


Drake has had quite a transformation through the VMA years. His win in 2012 for best hip hop video showed him sporting a muscle fitted long T, slacks and loafers. Even though he missed his win being held in traffic, Drake won again this year for best hip hop video. Not to worry though as we still saw him showing up and showing out in a tux. His look was nearly as good as his chat as he awarded his "crush" Rhianna with the Michael Jackson video Vanguard award!

Nick Jonas 

When Nick was in the Jonas Brothers they were always suited and booted for award shows. Since the split, each have found their own styles and we're a big fan of Nick's laid back easy going look as he rocked jeans, a plain tee and a monochromatic bomber this year.

Jaden Smith

Jaden's style has changed dramatically over the past few years and he is now recognised as a young style icon. From wearing a dress to prom, to wearing bobbles worth $5000 in his locks, this guy certainly does what he wants! His views on mixing menswear with womenswear in his day to day life is refreshing. In 2012 him and his younger sister Willow came to the VMAs in understated and casual looks. This year Jaden really showed his transformation wearing a handmade tailored longline coat with bold patterns and block colours. On anyone else we feel like this just wouldn’t work, but somehow Jaden rocks it. We are all about being who you want to be and showing that with your personal style, so take a leaf out of Jaden’s book and just do you!

Who do you think was the best dressed?
