It’s all about costumes, not fashion, on the red carpet at VMAs – Los Angeles Times

We knew she was going to be just left of NSFW, but what we didn’t know was that she’d be dressed like Xena: Warrior Princess on acid.

Exhibitionist extraordinaire Miley Cyrus outdid herself on the MTV Video Music Awards rainbow carpet Sunday, wearing a silvery showgirl costume by Versace that was part loincloth, part chandelier.

By her side was Jeremy Scott, the L.A.- and Milan-based fashion designer who has his own namesake label as well as being creative director of Moschino. He was the designer muse for the evening, and boy, did he make the most of it. Not only did he retouch the Moonman awards statuette, giving it a rainbow cast, but he also designed the rainbow carpet and provided pre-show commentary, all while shirtless in a rainbow-striped Moschino tuxedo. Wonder how or if all the exposure will translate into sales of his collections?

But this wasn’t really a night about fashion.

Besides signaling to the universe that suspenders were the new pasties, Cyrus proved what we’d known all along — the VMAs were about costumes, not clothing.
