One of the most popular trends on the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards were side slit dresses. Always sexy and never out of style!
Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding both opted for high necks. Perry wore a long-sleeved leopard print dress by Emanuel Ungaro and Celine shoes while Goulding went sleeveless in a spiky long gown from Amato Couture by Furne One and Brian Atwood shoes.
Selena Gomez went for peek-a-boo sexy in a long-sleeved geometric Atelier Versace gown. Paula Patton shined in a strapless black Lever Couture dress and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Feathers were on the minds of Ciara and Rita Ora. Ciara’s perfectly embellished in all the right places sheer dress from Givenchy Couture used light feathers while Ora’s Alexandre Vauthier Couture gown went heavy and long. She paired the sexy low-cut v-neck dress with Christian Louboutin shoes.
Another popular trend at the VMA’s were long sleeves. Actually, many of the side slit dresses shown above were also long-sleeved, but these women show how it’s done without one leg taking center stage.
Allison Williams and Joan Smalls went for long-sleeved minis in white. Williams wore her Christian Louboutin pumps with an ivory Valentino lace dress, giving it a somewhat romantic vintage look. Smalls looked modern, rolling up her sleeves in a bright white Viktor & Rolf dress and gladiator-style Casadei boots.
Naya Rivera and Jordin Sparks played peek-a-boo in their outfits. Rivera went sexy in a black cut-out Paco Rabanne dress while Sparks showed off her midriff in a cropped white jacket.
