Many celebrities who are notorious for showing up in outrageous outfits opted for simpler ensembles when showing up at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles, California. Two in particular were Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj. Here’s a look at both of their ensembles.
Ke$ha with no glitter on her face!
Ke$ha is notorious for an overuse of body glitter, something she spends thousands of dollars on each month. This look has often made her look dirty, but this year at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards she showed up with a clean face and dark lipstick. Sure the dark lipstick was a bold move, but for Ke$ha showing up with no glitter was even bolder. She opted for a 70s inspired boho-chic look that included see-through flower laced pants, a black fringed vest, a floral top, and a black wide brim hat adorned with flowers to top it all off. She kept her hair long and for the most part it was neat and tidy with just simple crimps to frame her face.
It was a lovely outfit which makes us wonder if she was giving a nod to Coachella, a music and arts festival that was held the same weekend as the awards show where people usually wear similar outfits while attending. Whatever her motive was it was a brilliant choice. She empowered the “flower child” but gave her own dark take on it with her bold lipstick and dark embellishments. If this is a step for Ke$ha towards a new style direction it’s a great direction. This outfit just shows that she doesn’t need a gallon of glitter to stand out. In this case Ke$ha really showed that less is more.
Nicki Minaj showed up without any underwear, but that wasn’t the most shocking part.
Believe it or not, Nicki Minaj’s dress displayed that she wasn’t wearing any underwear and that wasn’t the most shocking part of her outfit at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. The most shocking part was that, besides the extreme slits on each side, it was “normal” looking. She looked classy and elegant, something not usually associated with Minaj. Just two years ago she showed up at the Grammy’s in a controversial red ensemble accompanied by a man dressed as the pope. Even back in 2010, at the MTV Music Video Awards , Minaj showed up with neon pink hair and a purple spandex jumpsuit, something that’s a far cry from this year’s Grecian style ensemble that she showed up in at the movie awards.
This was a classy form-fitting black dress, and from the front there’s no sign of any slits. Only from the side, looking at where the slits are, is where the display of no underwear can be seen. We’ll excuse this fact because overall this was a very exquisite outfit for Minaj. Adorned with gold cuffs and jewelry with a beautiful side-swept hairdo and minimal makeup, this was probably the most mature and classy outfit ever seen on Minaj. Let’s hope we see more choices like this for Minaj in the future because it really showcased her natural beauty.
