Many went with safe outfits for the 2012 VMAs (like Rihanna’s all-white slinky gown), even if we expected some outrageous outfits as the awards show is famous for. However, Nicki Minaj and Rita Ora didn’t disappoint as both chose show-stopping embellished jumpsuits to parade on the red carpet. Whose look do you like more?
First up is Nicki Minaj, who was sporting some a bright yellow, pink and green wig under a black cab hat. The “Starships” singer wore a black Versace lace catsuit, which featured red jewel embellishments all-throughout. The jumpsuit fit her like a glove with those jewels lined up perfectly with her curves. She then paired it up with black fishnet tights and a pair of sparkly Christian Louboutin “Decorapumps” platform pumps.
Like Minaj, Rita Ora arrived on the red carpet, wearing black sheer long-sleeve Emilio Pucci jumpsuit with crystal embellishments all over and a sheer v-shaped neckline, which showed just a bit more boobage than we like. She paired it up with a just-as-sparkly Jimmy Choo embellished clutch and kept her shoes simple with a classic Christian Louboutin “Pigalle” pointed-toe pumps. Rita Ora added more glitz to her shimmering ensemble with Alex Woo necklaces with the “R” and “O” silver pendants.
