The MTV Video Music Awards 2014 were held on Sunday evening in California and all our musical favourites from Adam Levine and Ed Sheeran to Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus were in attendance. Now apart from watching the show to see who’s won what award and all the fantastic performances, I tend to watch it a lot more for all the clothes people wear! And it’s not just a bunch of women in ball gowns, some of them get really creative. So while I sat and watched, rapt with attention, there actually happened to be 5 different emojis that can accurately describe what I thought about some of the outfits at this year’s awards show.

1. Kim Kardashian & Joan Smalls – The Shocked Emoji

Kim Kardashian West and Joan Smalls both arrived in a printed skirt and top by Balmain. But once you look at them, you’ll see why the shocked emoji goes well with their outfit choices. While Kim’s top looked like it was ready for some open heart surgery, when I saw what Joan wore, I immediately thought Kim had worn hers back to front!

Until I had it checked and found out that Balmain actually has two similar designs from their Resort 2015 collection, but with two very different necklines.

2. Gwen Stefani, Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus & Solange Knowles – The Cool Emoji

These girls and their trousers stole the show! Pairing them with a jacket in the case of Solange Knowles and a crop top for Miley Cyrus, these women’s pants stood for power and were easily my favourites from this list.

So the ‘cool’ emoji is only fitting, right?

3. Amber Rose, Katy Perry & Nicki Minaj – The See No Evil Emoji

I did a double take when I saw Nicki Minaj‘s Anaconda video, so I wasn’t too surprised when I saw all the outfits she wore at the VMA’s. From a barely-there green two piece to an outfit that practically opened up to her belly (malfunction alert!) on stage, take a look at all the monstrosity.

Not too far from Nicki’s look was Amber Rose.

And then there’s Katy Perry. The VMA’s were held on a Sunday, so this #ThrowbackThursday outfit to what Britney Spears once wore was completely unnecessary, don’t you think?

And this is exactly the face I made when I saw these outfits!

4. Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora & Demi Lovato – The Red Faced Emoji

These ladies weren’t afraid to get a bit daring on the red carpet. In their barely-there gowns, one move and I feel like they could have had their own little malfunction right there!

I was so worried about what could have happened if there was a sudden gust of wind, my face was like this throughout.

5. Taylor Swift – The Love-Struck Emoji

Now Taylor Swift could wear a gunny bag and we’d love her anyway. She’s done everything from an elegant gown, to shorts, a skirt, crop tops so what do you do when you’ve already worn everything you could? Taylor wore a very tiny romper, erm, maybe it was just a bodysuit? You decide.

Romper or not, she carries it off well (duh!) so we absolutely love it!
