Last night’s 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards kicked off with a theatrical performance by Lady Gaga’s alter ego “Jo Calderone” which definitely set the tone for the wild and wacky night ahead. As with most MTV gatherings, the music industry’s best took advantage of the playful atmosphere to show off their eclectic personal style. Just about everyone was decked out from head to toe, starting, of course, with some fabulous eyewear. Check out who rocked the hottest shady and spexy styles below:
Geek chic specs continue to be all the rage, especially during Hollywood events. Chunky black styles were a popular choice as well as bold, browline frames. The wildest look came from none other than LMFAO front man, Redfoo, who jazzed up his over-the-top outfit with white, oversized frames. On the other hand, teen heartthrob, Justin Bieber, gave everyone “Bieber Fever” by showing off his mature side in black, dapper specs semi-rimmed in gold metal. Overall, we have to say these Hollywood hunks made the right choice by throwing on some eye candy.
From rockers to rappers to reality TV stars, it seems like no one left home without their red (or in the VMA’s case black) carpet worthy sunnies. Plastic and metal aviators, modified wayfarers and futuristic shields were among the fan favorites. Many artists—including Cobra Starship, Pitbull and Miguel—went with blacked out, gradient or mirrored lenses to add that MTV edgy appeal. Without a doubt, these music moguls understand how to use their shades to make an undeniable fashion statement.
