No, she didn’t grace us with an album drop this time, but made her mark as a presenter at this prestigious award show.

While a decade has passed since her infamous appearance in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video, the 32-year-old has evolved into a multifaceted supermodel, podcaster, and writer, deserving every bit of her VMA invitation.
Emily took the stage with her signature style to introduce Karol G’s performance, but before that, all eyes were on her as she made her grand entrance on the pink carpet at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Her daring ensemble featured a green sheer mesh top, artfully worn in a halter-style crisscross, striking a perfect balance between revealing and tasteful, offering a hint of underboob.
The green top, which provided a glimpse of her toned abs, flawlessly complemented the tied waistband of her uneven burnt orange floral maxi skirt. With confidence, Sebastian Bear-McClard’s ex subtly displayed her thong as she strutted down the carpet.
To elevate her look, Emily adorned herself with an exquisite array of gold jewelry, including the alluring Honey Large Hoops and the dazzling triple diamond Kira bracelets by Melissa Kaye Jewellery. Her vintage Gucci multi-bezel watch added a sophisticated touch to the ensemble.
Her hair, beautifully styled in center-parted waves of glazed amber, exuded a ’70s-inspired natural glam, harmonizing perfectly with her elegant look.

Injecting both height and a sense of flair were the Piferi fade vegan metallic ankle-wrap sandals, enhancing her overall ensemble.

This stunning outfit was reminiscent of her recent appearance at New York Fashion Week, where Emily took to the streets of Soho in a striking see-through lace pale green dress.
Fearlessly opting to forgo a bra, her outfit featured a captivating halter neckline, a sultry deep-V bodice, and a calf-length hem, allowing subtle hints of skin to peek through the fabric – a perfect choice for staying ventilated during the summer’s final heatwave.

She paired the dress with jet-black strappy high-heeled shoes to create a captivating contrast, perfectly harmonizing with a chic Prada Arque leather shoulder bag that elegantly complemented her footwear.
Emily’s signature glazed amber hair beautifully contrasted with the vibrant tone of her clothing, cascading gracefully onto her shoulders.
She rounded off her look with a delicate Simon G necklace in 14K gold adorned with dazzling diamonds.
