The MTV EMA awards are back in person this 2021 as opposed to last year’s event hosted within the walls of Zoom, where the Pandemic may have limited the freedom but the spirit was high and wardrobes were ravishing. This year the event took place in Budapest, Hungary at the Papp László Budapest Sportaréna. The MTV Europe Music Awards witnessed sensational wins and sizzling performances from the most celebrated artists, hosted by Saweetie but, what could be more anticipated than the awards, nominees, and performances? The gorgeous directory of the best dressed, of course! So, if you haven’t already guessed it, we evidently decided to curate the best looks of the night from your favorite celebrities.
Saweetie hosted the MTV EMA awards this year and indeed dressed for the occasion. Serving 11 striking looks for the event, we picked out the show stopper outfit that swept us away. The American Rapper who recently dropped her latest single, ‘Get It Girl’, arrived in a Givenchy gown. *insert drooling emoji* The roaring twenties-inspired gown features square-shaped sequins embroidered all over in a black-coffee tainted ombre effect with fringes featured at the hemline. The embellished neckline compensates for the neck accessories and the striking amber hair color compliments Saweetie’s outfit entree of the night.
The veil and sheer drama caught our attention and we couldn’t resist but come back for another serving of the Saweetie-look being royally served at the carpets; from Givenchy’s SS 22 elegance to the labels’ daring aura. The all-black outfit featured a sheer dress detailed with zipper slit and high neck super cropped top accentuated with faux fur asymmetrically wrapped across the chest. The look was finished off with a pair of black platform heels and a dramatic veil.
Winnie Harlow’s off-beat combination of the knee-high boot with strappy heel won the look of the night. The dazzling fashion model swiveled her long locks and struck a pose in a David Koma outfit that had earlier set the SS/22 runway on fire. The ensemble features a dramatic feathered top along with a mini skirt with a bejeweled hemline.
Kim Petra strutted the EMA carpet looking like a character stripped right off a Counter-Strike for the fashionistas and had us desperately looking for the right words to describe the rogue glam.Making checks look like a million bucks, the German singer donned a waist-high slit dress in yellow with buckled fasteners at the side. The dress features a cowl neckline morphed into a head covering and also includes a biker jacket along with a pair of knee-high embossed chunky boots and a chain-link neckpiece finishing the rugged look.
Sarah Faith Griffiths
Sarah Griffiths channeled a quirky Lolita look in a luxe pastel palette. The outfit features an extra dramatic bell-sleeved top in assemblages of lace, satin, and accordion pleats at the front with pearl bracelets highlighted at the sleeve and intertwined at the front of the skirt. Scalloped laces in different proportions take copious amounts of space on the outfit. Griffiths completed the outfit with a pair of chunky cream boots.
It is no surprise that Rita Ora dropped this glamorous look at the award ceremony, she has always left us spellbound with her choicest outfits at the events. For this one, the crowd, yet again, was left stunned with the all-black dramatic jumpsuit from Jean-Louis Sabaji and Taika Waititi’s candid poses with the outfit. Swathed in dramatic detailings of feathers at the torso, Ora’s outfit features a trailing cape that captures all the evening glam. The look is finished with a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti Pris wedge sandals from the Fall 2021 collection and drop earrings.
Neon palettes in iterations of green and yellow have been doing generous rounds of the fashion seasons and celebrities have been embracing the Pantone in every event ever! Jeny was no stranger to this and donned a playful minidress that encapsulated all the oomph. The puffed dress is off-shoulder and features a pair of lime green fingerless opera-esque gloves. Bonsenge delved into some contrast pairing and wore a pair of pink pointed heels with the outfit.
Jedet dazzled the carpets in all black with hints of gold. The sensational Versace gown is cold-shouldered with thigh-high slits framing her tattoo. The sheer elegance also features a knotted detail at the waist and a deep neckline. The actress concluded the look with a pair of gold platform heels, chain-link choker, and earrings.
Neon had Oumi Janta on board too! She decided to bring in her sporty vibe at the event garnished with a side of glam. The skating star decided to take athleisure for a glamorous spin and wore a co-ord set featuring a cropped jacket and a pair of flared drawstring joggers. The highlight of the get-up are the blue lipstick and hair-do that instantly catch all the well-deserved attention.
Gaja Prestor looked stunning in the evening jumpsuit with a dramatic ruffled floor-length trail featuring a plunging neckline. Cinched at the waist, the outfit is paired with a leather jacket, a black handbag from The Lie by JPZ, a two-layered neckpiece, and a pair of hoop earrings.
