The 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards took place at Festhalle Frankfurt in Frankfurt am Main, Germany last Sunday and naturally, we went fashion spotting.
Here are the dresses that heated up the 2012 MTV EMAs for us, and the ones that left us feeling icy cold.
Like in our last Rita Ora spot, Rita Ora went theatrical on us but this time, we are 100% buying the drama she’s selling. Rita Ora stunned in this Marchesa Fall 2012 red ball gown with a floral-embroidered bodice and a voluminous skirt:
Taylor Swift stuck to her tried and tested sparkly dress formula in this J. Mendel Fall 2012 white sheer-paneled gown. No complaints from us — it’s what works for her. Doesn’t she look like a living doll in these pictures?
Anne Vyalitsyna rocked her biker jacket-inspired black zippered dress custom-made by Replay. The dress looks amazing on her but we doubt it’ll look as good on anyone but a supermodel like Anne V.:
Louise Roe channeled a goddess/gladiator-inspired look in her gold-collared and belted white halter dress from Sass & Bide. Alicia Keys went the safe route and wore one of the never-fail paneled dresses from Stella McCartney. Carly Rae Jepsen wore a Johanna Johnson lace strapless gown in what is turning out to be her favorite color, silver.
These ladies looked great but nothing spectacular so they’re in the neutral zone:
We see it, no doubt about it: Heidi Klum has a rockin‘ bod. But this Versace dress, with the lace-up front, the thigh-high slit up to here and that weird one-sleeve thing, is one step away from being a hot mess:
What saves Kim Kardashian from being placed at the bottom of our list is the fact that she took a risk with this Stephane Rolland mullet dress. If there’s a time and place to wear something risky and edgy, it would be an MTV event:
Lana Del Rey’s bored face says everything we feel about her in this blah blue dress:
