The recently concluded 2014 MTV Video Music Awards saw a great number of strong fashion statements. Many arrived in shimmering frocks, hip yet elegant LBDs, and edgy pantsuits. Some showed classic Hollywood glamour in floor-length gowns. And as expected, racy and revealing outfits were also paraded on the red carpet. Not a few flaunted cleavages, midriffs, toned pins, and sexy backs.
As for American model Chanel Iman, well, she embraced bondage fashion. The 23-year-old gave onlookers a glimpse of her skin and a clear view of her model figure in a fitted leather woven dress with long sleeves and a high neck from Balmain’s fall 2014 collection.
She turned heads in this number, although she was probably sweating a lot while posing on the red carpet under the scorching California sun on Sunday.

Completing her somewhat futuristic bondage look were cage sandals from Casadei. They are as strappy as her dress and feature metallic gold hardware along the center. Back zipper fastenings and high stiletto blade heels that measure about 5 inches finish this pair.
