The Best Celebrity Shoes From the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards

We don’t want to bore you with more details, so let’s get straight to the shoe-action on the red carpet. Here are the best celebrity shoes we spotted at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) this year:

1. Becky G in Adidas Sneakers

Probably the most comfortable ensemble we saw on the carpet was that of rapper Becky G. The “Becky from the Block” singer looked relaxed and ready to party in Adidas sneakers paired with a cute star-print skirt and a casual top.

2. Lil Kim in Christian Louboutin “Daf Booty”

Lil Kim always looks different on the red carpet, and the VMAs was no exception. She wore what looked like a leather jumpsuit with holes. It’s not our favorite look at the event, but we do love her yellow Christian Louboutin “Daf Booty” shoes! They added a much needed pop of color and definitely took some attention away from her questionable outfit. What do you think of Lil Kim’s ensemble?

3. Foxy Brown in Giuseppe Zanotti “Gaga”

Like Lil Kim’s ensemble, Foxy Brown’s tight, revealing outfit did not appeal to us. We did, however, like her shoes. She was wearing Giuseppe Zanotti “Gaga” heel-less boots — a fitting name for such a funky pair of shoes. We wish she paired them with a more subtle attire, though. What about you?

4. Melanie Iglesias in BCBG “Estie” Sandals

A model and a star of the MTV show ‘Girl Code’, Melanie Iglesias looked simple and stunning in a purple plunging neck gown paired with BCBG “Estie” sandals. We love the designed ankle cuffs on these sandals.

5. Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace Pumps

Selena Gomez stunned in head-to-toe Atelier Versace haute couture. She looked sexy yet sweet, even with that thigh-high slit. Her shoes are also from the Fall 2014 Haute Couture collection of Versace presented during Paris Fashion Week in July. They look a lot like the Louboutin “Un Bout” PVC pumps, don’t you think? It’s a good thing that Selena didn’t experience any weird foot fog like some other stars did in PVC shoes.

6. Katy Perry in Celine Ankle-Strap Sandals

Katy Perry’s closing performance of her latest single “Roar” had all of Brooklyn roaring. We guess she was going for animalistic at the VMAs because she wore an animal-printed Ungaro dress for the event. The singer paired the outfit with simple Celine ankle-strap sandals with gold embellishment that matched her golden grills! It looked like Katy was really feeling wild that night.

7. Taylor Swift in Prada Sandals

Taylor Swift looked vintage and classy in a long black Herve Ledger dress paired with Prada platform sandals, but her behavior caught on camera was far from sophisticated. We can’t deny, though, that she looks fabulous here, and so do her shoes.

8. Rita Ora in Christian Louboutin for Alexandre Vauthier Sandals

Rita Ora was not Rita-Ora-like at the VMAs this time. She didn’t have her signature red lips, and her blond hair was slick and sophisticated in a short bob. She was very stylish in a blue Alexandre Vauthier couture dress that had a massively long train of feathers. Just like Selena, Rita took the runway look from head to toe and paired the dress with Christian Louboutin for Alexandre Vauthier ankle-strap sandals. Do you like her sleek, sophisticated look?

9. Miley Cyrus in Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals

We don’t know where to begin with Miley Cyrus. While her red carpet look was underwhelming, her vulgar and interesting on-stage performance definitely caught everyone’s attention. Miley walked the carpet in a Dolce & Gabbana getup paired with Giuseppe Zanotti suede sandals. We’re not really sure what else to say about her ensemble. We were far too shocked by her performance to think too much about the attire.

10. Holland Roden in Rupert Sanderson “Hydra” Pumps

‘Teen Wolf’ star Holland Roden was named one of the best dressed of the night by many online media outlets. Her unique Naeem Khan dress garnered lots of attention, especially since she toned down her footwear with Rupert Sanderson nude “Hydra” peep-toe pumps.

11. Lady Gaga in Alaia Boots

Lady Gaga was a fantastic opening act, but her red carpet look wasn’t as good. She wore a dull black Prabal Gurung gown that looked way too big for her. She wore a pair of shoes we’ve seen on her before, her sky-high Alaia boots. Note, however, that although she arrived at the VMAs in this attire, she watched the show in the sexy shell thong bikini she wore in her performance. In the words of Kevin Hart, “Lady Gaga got some @$$.”

12. Jennifer Hudson in Christian Louboutin “So Kate” Pumps

Jennifer Hudson went for chic and sophisticated with a Dior skirt and top paired with Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pumps. The monochrome look suits her, don’t you think?

13. Jordin Sparks in Diane von Furstenburg “Rafiya” Sandals

While Jennifer went for a black ensemble, fellow ‘American Idol’ alum Jordin Sparks opted for a white high-waist skirt and a crop top. Her Diane von Furstenburg “Rafiya” sandals added a little bit of color and sparkle to her look.

14. Ellie Goulding in Brian Atwood “Obsession” Pumps

Ellie Goulding’s dress could probably hurt somebody! The spiked and studded Fern Amato creation had enough going on, so Ellie made the smart decision of keeping her footwear simple. She wore Brian Atwood “Obsession” pumps in nude.

15. Erin Wasson in Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals

It looks like holed and see-through dresses were the theme of this year’s VMAs, and supermodel Erin Wasson was one of the ladies who followed suit. She paired the barely there Alexandre Vauthier dress with Giuseppe Zanotti black sandals with clear stilettos. Do you like what she was wearing?

16. Zoey Deutch Saint Laurent “Janis” Pumps

‘Ringer’ star Zoey Deutch sparkled in a gold outfit consisting of a knee-length skirt and a top paired with Saint Laurent “Janis” pumps. She was one of the stars who kept their ensembles safe and simple for the event.

17. Sarah Hyland in Casadei Sandals

‘Modern Family’ actress Sarah Hyland didn’t look like her TV character, Hailey, in a modest Marchesa dress and strappy black Casadei sandals. We don’t think the dress did justice to her fabulous physique; in fact, she looked almost matronly. Don’t you agree?

18. Deena Cortese in London Trash “Ceres”

Deena Cortese of ‘Jersey Shore’ gave a shout-out to all the curvy girls on “MTV’s Red Carpet Report.” The voluptuous gal wore a peplum dress from Bebe, which she paired with sky-high London Trash “Ceres” boots that reminded us of Christian Louboutin’s “Zoulou” sandals.

19. Jillian Rose Reed in L.A.M.B. Sandals

Jillian Rose Reed, the actress playing Tamara in MTV’s ‘Awkward’, didn’t look “amazeballs” in her Three Floor color-blocked dress paired with L.A.M.B. color-blocked shoes. There was too much color blocking. Do you like her ensemble?

20. Tanisha Long in Prada Sandals

‘Girl Code’ star Tanisha Long followed co-star Melanie’s color theme with a short purple Ted Baker dress. She kept her ensemble playful and colorful with pink Prada cage sandals.

21. Ariana Grande in White Pumps

Ariana Grande stuck to her fashion MO with a cute floral-print dress by ‘Project Runway’ alum Kenley Collins. She paired the dress with white pointy-toe pumps. She looked super sweet and adorable in this ensemble. Her simple style also had many online media outlets naming her one of the best dressed at the VMAs.

22. Iggy Azalea in Gold T-Strap Sandals

Iggy Azalea may not have won the MoonMan for this year’s Artist to Watch, but she seemed happy presenting an award with her hip-hop idol Lil Kim. Iggy was another celebrity in a see-through gown that covered just the right parts of her body. She was a golden girl from top to bottom, with her blond updo and gold t-strap sandals. Can you help us ID them?

23. Paula Patton in Silver Cap-Toe Pumps

Paula Patton was not one of the best dressed at the VMAs, but we give her mad props for not ripping Miley Cyrus to shreds after the latter’s risqué performance with her husband, Robin Thicke. She was reportedly fine with it because she knew exactly what was going to happen since the beginning. We only wish her ensemble at the event was just as cool as her attitude. It was a little too sparkly for our taste. Plus, her metallic silver cap-toe pumps didn’t match her bronze, shimmery outfit. It’s a good thing we could barely see her shoes.
