Stylecab's Top Trends from the 2014 VMA's

The 2014 Video Music Awards was filled with lots of glamour on the red carpet.  Whereas music awards shows usually tend to bring out the outrageous and the avant-garde when it comes to fashion, at this year's VMA's, it seemed celebrities had a more va-va-voom, glamorous idea in mind.  In fact, when scrolling through the pictures, we were surprised to find that they were shots from the VMA's and not from movie awards show in Hollywood.  We saw a surprising amount of black on the red carpet, while past years featured almost no black whatsoever.  Overall, there were no wacky over-the-top looks at all, in fact, the style at the VMA's this year was much more restrained and sophisticated.  Hey, we're not complaining--everyone looked incredible, after all.  Stylecab rounded up our 4 favourite trends from the 2014 VMA's, which you can check out below and keep in mind for your next evening soiree!


Plunging Necklines

Deep plunging necklines were seen on a dozen of the industries top songstress and celebrities.  While some opted for a super va-va-voom look with both a deep plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit, others kept the look more demure and vintage-inspired with just the deep neckline.

Slinky Silver

We adored these slinky silver numbers on the typically sexy Jennifer Lopez and the usually more 'gangsta' Iggy Azalea.  These sparkling metallic numbers were fit close to the body creating beautiful hourglass shapes, with revealing cut-outs to give the gowns a touch more edge.

Bandeaus Are Back

First it was cropped tops and now it seems the tops are getting even smaller, with the return of the bandeau top!  Paired with high-waisted trousers and skirts, the bandeau is made to look ever so slightly less sexy and given a modern touch.

Beautiful in Black

Whereas we've historically seen very little black on the VMA's red carpet, as pop stars tended to favour wacky outfits with bright colours and almost blinding embellishment, this year we saw a lot of more under-stated black looks, proving that black 'is the new black', as always.
