Best Dressed: Muchmusic Video Awards 2012

Just last Sunday, Canada's legendary music channel Muchmusic celebrated it's annual Muchmusic Video Awards. Although there were many memorable moments such as Katy Perry's metamorphic performance and LMFAO coming on stage in some very unique clothing choices, here at Amanda's Fashion Spot it is all about the red carpet! The red carpet had two distinct trends for the evening, goth and minis, two very different and yet equally impactful fashion statements. So let's get down to the goods and take a look at the MMVA's best dressed!
1) Shenae Grimes in Amanda Lee Kew

Representing Canadian designer Amanda Lee Kew, Shenea Grimes wore a custom creation by the Ryerson grad. Her look channeled Kew's gothic Fall 2012 presentation looks with a straight cut and black lightweight fabric but Grimes put her own spin on it with a gold arm bracelet and gold studded shoes, giving her look a boho vibe.

2) Selena Gomez in a gold sequin mini

Over the last two years, sequins have been everywhere. From a casual t-shirt, to boyfriend blazers, to skinny pants to skirts and the list goes on. Despite their frequent appearances on every form of apparel, they just never get old. Selena Gomez looked every bit trendy and fun in her gold sequin mini, perfect for a New Year's Party, a night on the town or the MMVA's!

3) Katy Perry in VAWK

Representing Project Runway Canada alum Sunny Fong, Katy Perry channeled her inner goth girl in the most glamorous way as her sheer black dress was accented perfectly with a gold chest plate and luscious purple ombre hair. She kept the jewelry simple with one gold bracelet and this helped let the dress shine.


4) Keshia Chante in Lucian Matis

Wearing a design by another Project Runway Canada alum Lucian Matis, the "Does He Love Me?" singer stepped out in an olive green mini accented with a gold sparkly belt.  Chante glowed and even sported on trend neon nails that contrasted with her fun outfit.

5) Carly Rae Jepsen in Sachin & Babi

The singer of the moment Carly Rae Jepsen, channeled Angelina Jolie in her thigh high, double-slit black leather gown. Accessorized with a trendy and fun colourful bib necklace, the whole look is a perfect blend of youthful edginess.

It was nice to see the stars representing Canadian fashion design talent and in the future we hope to see more of it! What did you think of the Muchmusic Video Awards red carpet look? Let me know in the comments below!
