Everyone knows that the MTV Video Music Awards are just as much about the fashion as they are about the music – the two literally go hand in hand. After finding one of the shoes Chelsea Handler wore while hosting the show, I’ve continued to check out more shoe styles seen on celebs at the event. Of course, Lady Gaga had to outdo everyone in the most outrageous way possible by wearing a dress and shoes made of real meat:
This is definitely a statement-making choice (to say the least), but one that I doubt anyone will want to emulate for themselves. If you do want to get the look, see this MTV Style article for details on how they were created and consult with your local butcher (and, please, send pictures!). In addition to wearing beef, Gaga wore the iconic Alexander McQueen armadillo shoes (pictured, top), the same style featured in her Bad Romance video, which won Video of the Year.
There isn’t anything quite like the McQueen heels, but these Senso Neve shoes in snake are a real-life alternative to get that edgy, Gaga-esque style for less. They are also a look-alike for the Acne Admire, as I found on Nitrolicious. Get them on pre-order for $199.95 at Solestruck.
While I do enjoy watching Gaga and her wild fashion choices, there were other stars wearing much more wearable shoes that we could all potentially rock in real life – that is, if we have the cash flow for the pricey designer brands they opt for. That’s why I’ve also found some similar, but less expensive alternatives for those who love the looks seen at the VMAs, but need something more affordable. Let’s check it out:
Selena Gomez wore a gorgeous silver dress and kept the metallic theme going head-to-toe with her silver Brian Atwood Kendall shoes. I can’t find these available for sale online, but here are a couple options for less:
Charles by Charles David Risque (left) for $47.25 at 6pm and the Chinese Laundry Fire It Up (right) for $49.99 at Dillards.
Hayley Williams of Paramore wore the Miu Miu Spectator Pump, available at Bergdorf Goodman for $650. Save some money and get a similar look with these shoes:
Samanta Amay for $199.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.
Audrina Patridge opted for the Balmain Metallic Rhinestone Pump, which is available at Barneys for $2,300. Get something much less pricey with these shoes:
Michael Antonio Reza for $98.95 at Shoebuy. Coupon code EMLFALLKICKOFF10 takes 20% off for a limited time, making them $79.16 with free shipping. But, there are a few sizes at Amazon for only $47.98 with free shipping.
JWoww of Jersey Shore sported a more toned-down look than usual, which looks good on her, and I’m definitely loving the shoes. I think these are Jimmy Choo, although I couldn’t locate the exact pair. But, here’s a sparkly option for less:
Enzo Angiolini Merryann for $79.95 at Nordstrom.
Update: It looks like she could be wearing the Jimmy Choo Crown, which is $695 at Saks:
Or, possibly, the Enzo Angiolini Sully for $88.95 at Nordstrom:
Here’s another lookalike without a peep toe, the Enzo Angiolini Smiles, which is also sold at Nordstrom:
Twighlight’s Ashley Greene and singer Kei$ha both wore closed-toe black patent pumps to the VMA’s. I’m not sure of the designer for either of these shoes, but here’s a similar pair for an affordable price:
Aldo Moos for $80 at Aldo.com.
